  • I've used two of these for over 15 years

    Mar 8, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Protects from Allergens and makes the air smell fresh ! 
    Cons: The fan is a bit noisy on the old units that I have.

    Summary: These units work exactly as the advertisements say they do. They eliminate odors, allergenic toxins and particulates from the air.  I’d bet my life on it.This morning I happened to come across and read some of the incredibly IGNORANT ... read more

    Pros: rids air of dust, kills odors, molds, mildews, quiet.
    Cons: a bit expensive, but worth every penny!

    Summary: I have been using the Ecoquest air purifiers for the last 15 years. With the first one that I borrowed from a dealer to try, we were renting a house that had mold (which we didn't know about when we moved in) I was really sick and so was my dd, but we ... read more

    Pros: Best investment I've made in 12 years.
    Cons: Pricy but cheaper than medical bills.

    Summary: I don't know about all the negative reviews for this product. Do they or did they actually own one ? I've owned one for 12 years and I can tell you that my unit just broke down and I am looking at buying another one right away. It's a good thing I did ... read more

  • I am currently testing this purifier.

    Apr 25, 2007 by
    Rated a Off Topic Review
    Pros: Actually does seems to do what it says. Built solid, with quality.
    Cons: Pricey -- if it solves your problems, it is worth the cost.

    Summary: I have been testing the similar unit to this (Breeze AT) that is for up to 2500 sf instead of 3000 sf (same technology) for personal use for 10 days, since I'm looking into retailing them as a dealer. Since I am not a dealer yet, my opinion is ... read more

    Pros: This machine performs as advertised.
    Cons: The only con we can think of it is simply too easy to use.

    Summary: Let us attempt to put some common sense plausibility into this thread started here. His opinion, Ozone kills. It's bad for you and if you continue to place yourself in it's harmful path, you'll die. Non the fact that millions of these out dated ... read more

    Pros: If it was cleaning the air, that would be a pro
    Cons: Easily busted, high maintenance, INEPT customer service

    Summary: My grandparents bought the Classic unit in 1999. It was used maybe 6 months to a year until my grandpa died and my grandma moved away, leaving it in a closet for years. I picked it up in summer 2006, thinking it might help my boyfriend's cat allergies. ... read more

    Pros: I like the smell of the ozone it produces. No other "pro's"
    Cons: Doesn't clear air; destroys all latex-containing items in your home; DANGEROUS 03 concentrations! Scary product!

    Summary: Beyond the HIGHLY dubious claimed benefits of this device, and the known dangers of high ozone concentrations... This device (I had the Living Air Breeze) DESTROYED every latex item in my home: - a box of latex gloves - the waste-bands of my ... read more

    Nov 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superb at odor/smoke elimination, good at relieving some allergic reactions, inexpensive to use
    Cons: Expensive (from manufacturer), The automatic detector/sensor is inconsistent.

    Summary: I bought the XL-15 air purifier back in 1997 and have used ever since. I was amazed at how it could 'clean' the air, destroy odors, and help me in my allergies. I found that I didn't sneeze nearly as much and whenever I took it to friends/family ... read more

  • A dangerous product

    Feb 5, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: generates money for people who really don't care about your health. A big SCAM
    Cons: Low setting does little to clean air. High setting is dangerous to your health.

    Summary: I purchased a Living Air purifier hoping that it would clear my indoor air from pet dander and any other particles big enough to see. In my experience It did not work. 1st because the air purifier was not designed to filter air. 2nd What it does is ... read more

    Summary: On the good side, I've had my Living Air Purifier for 2 years now and have had good luck with it cleaning smells out of my house. Before I got it, I had 3 cats and a basement with a mildew problem (although not severe, it is smelly and annoying). The ... read more

    Pros: Kept my wife from sneezing and coughing in the middle of the night.
    Cons: Smell of air purifier made me feel sick to my stomach w/ headache. Expensive.

    Summary: My wife's brother had an Ecoquest Breeze that he let us borrow. He swore by it and said that it took away his coughs and he was never sick when he had it around. My wife often wakes in the middle of the night coughing and sneezing due to allergies. We ... read more

    Pros: Small, but can do the entire house from one location. Low power consumption. Quiet opperation.
    Cons: 03 plates must be kept clean or they loose effectiveness.

    Summary: As I reached my thirties I began to develop allergies. Every six to eight weeks I was on some sort of antibiotic due to colds and sinus infections. I always saw that "smokey haze" in the beams of sunlight coming through windows. My wife's a clean freak ... read more

    Pros: Good for the bank accounts of the manufacturer and distributors.
    Cons: Does not eliminate dust. Requires cleaning. Potentially hazardous.

    Summary: I bought my Living Air Classic two years ago after recovering from a bout with walking pneumonia. I believed the advertising claims that it would clean and sanitize the air in my home, and that it would be good for my health. I have run it 24/7 on the ... read more

    Pros: High quality, well built, worth the money.
    Cons: Sometimes noisy when set on high. Purifier control is more coarse than I would like.

    Summary: I thought I might let you know that I had a severe sinus problem that plagued me for a decade. I tried everything, saw doctors in multiple states, all said it was part of getting on in years. I had a particularly bad attack while visiting family in FL ... read more

    Pros: None, unless you like the smell of ozone
    Cons: This device deliberately generates ozone which is a toxic gas and a major air pollutant

    Summary: I don't write a review of a product on epinions unless I feel strongly about a product. Since I feel very strongly in the negative direction against the so-called "Living Air Classic" this review will reflect that. WHY I WROTE THIS REVIEW Like ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Great for odor removal
    Cons: Ozone is produced which can be harmful, particularly those with sensitive respiratory systems.

    Summary: As you can see in other reviews the Ecoquest Living Air is an ozone generator and not an air purifier that will remove allergens from the air. If you are looking to remove gases such as odors from a room this could be a good product for you. Some hotels ... read more

    Pros: The air did smell cleaner.
    Cons: Sticky film on EVERYTHING. Seriously. (And your toys will fall apart!!!)

    Summary: A lot of reviews for this product mention the sticky residue that settles all over the house when using it. This is TRUE. Your windows will fog up, and the sticky residue will be everywhere. Another damaging side effect is this machine's effect on ... read more
