    Media filters often absorb odors in the environment and when these machines are turned on and off you will have an issue with smells. You should always run these 24/7, so just run the machine until this odor cycles through...should be no more then 1 hour. I love these systems!

    When did you last change the filters?

I cleaned purifier plate and filters and purifier still won't workon my fresh air machine

The air purifier filters which need to be washed lose their efficiency very fast and need replacement every few months . I think its time you switched to a better air purifier like this with superior filters which last longer and can be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner Premium Air Purifiers with e2f technology

Air purifier filter smells bad

That's interesting... I doubt it is the filter if the new filter did the same. It might help if you take a fan and blow it through the area behind the filter, or maybe even spraying some Lysol in it, because my best guess is that something inside the purifier is what is causing the smell. Hope this helps!

I am not sure when or how to change the filter for my ecoquest air purifier. I moved into a house with brand new carpets, floors, paint etc. and then had a flood. I was running the purifier fairly...

If you have a HEPA filter, it may need cleaning. Every month at least. If you figured you don't NEED one because of the machines abilities to knock down particulates, you're most likely right. HEPA "filters" tend to grow their OWN nasties after a short time with ANY moisture around at all. The plate may have VOC's crystallizing on the plate. Check the lint screen and if it doesn't smell bad(musty) and you can see light thru it when you hold it up to a light, it's probably only needing a vacuuming. Some people rinse them in warm soapy water. Make sure it's DRY before putting it back in.

How do i test that healthway filter is able to reduce bacteira and germ cioncentration in an HIV /AIDS FREE DRUGS CLINIC OF ABOUT 300 PEOPLE COUGHING

Strictly speaking, you would need to run culture tests in a sealed laboratory to conduct such a test. There is actually no way for the layman to verify that microorganisms are being killed by this device. Either you believe the company's claims, or you don't.

Whilst Healthway claim that they do not use ozone generation as a method of treating microorganisms, generally speaking, any high voltage system (18kV is considered high voltage) will generate some degree of ozone. All that is required is for an electrical connection wire to have some sharp edge and the high voltage will generate ozone. There is no solution to this, however since the device is Listed by the FDA as a Class II Medical Device, you should write a letter of complaint to Healthway.

Is this purifier hepa or ozone?

Strictly speaking it is both and neither! It incorporates a high voltage source (18kV) which has the potential to create ozone, though the manufacturer does not claim that ozone is the means by which micoorganisms are defeated. It also incorporates an 85% efficient HEPA filter, but teams it with EMF technology (their own patented technology using the 18kV energy field) to increase the HEPA efficiency to 99.99% (their claim).

Air Purifier smells like chlorine

Mine does too. Did a little research - I guess all air filters let out a little bit of ozone. Some describe the smell of ozone to be something like bleach yet others say it smells like geraniums or even "sparks" (like the sparks that come off of the bumper car ride at the fair...hmm...interesting). Not sure which to believe, but I know mine smells.
I found a manual talking about reducing this smell. Said the first couple of weeks are the worst of it, but if it still bothers you, you could install an "activiated carbon filter" down stream from the air filter, or go through complicated instructions (for whatever model they were talking about) to go into the of the machine and switch stuff around.
Both solutionssound complicated to me.
I'm just happy knowing the smell is normal and that it is actually working. Think I'll live with the smell.
