The other electronic-precipitator model, the Sharper Image SI637 Ionic Breeze Quadra Silent Air Purifier, proved unimpressive in our tests. Ads for this unit tout its silence and miserly power consumption. Both are attributable to its lack of a fan. But so is its disappointing performance; we found almost no measurable reduction in airborne particles.
thank you!DevExpert said:Save your money guys?The Consumer Reports reviewed the air purifiers and found that this type does not provide any benefit whatsoever?Here is the snippet:
These units do have the fan to draw the air through the unit and they do not emit the Ozone. Interesting thing that in Instructions for this unit specifically is mentioned that EPA does not recommend the Ozone emitting air cleaners since they are not safe for household use :8: …Environizer cleans the air by positively charging the incoming air. Then the positively charged particles, like pollen and pet dander, attach to the negatively charged rod, "trapping" them.
