SOURCE: No problem but can't find replacement filters

Hi just a tip for you, if you can't find a filter you can buy filter media at your hardware store such as Home Depot, and have it cut to fit. It is good material made to replace any type filters. Sincerely,

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

My ionic breeze quadra air purifier keeps turning on and off. I have cleaned the fins, what else can i do?


Hi.

The filter will probably need replacement. Ionic breeze purifier are not being manufactured anymore because of heath concerns. Parts are also not distributed anymore.
I suggest replacing the ionic purifier with a different air purifier.

IS THIS PURIFIER REALLY WORKING IS IT a hepa or carbon filter?


Most particles in the air are neutral in charge. Meaning they have the same amount of negatively charged electrons, and positively charged protons. A common type of air purifier uses what is called corona discharge air purifier. These type of air purifier create molecules called ions. When particles pass through these air purifiers electric current makes these particle either positively charged or negatively charged. Once these "ionized" particles from the air makes contact with objects that are opposite of thier charged, they stick to them instead of lingering in the air, or they may clump with other particle untill they are too heavy and fall to the ground. Filter types air purifier are not so good since they require periodic filter replacement. These type of air purifier are usually part of the air conditioning system. The purifier picture I see are the ones i just mentioned, and they are not filter types.

I have a new (3 weeks) Holmes air purifier. After a week of sitting on my bedtable, I noticed black sooty powder on my bed table and a week later, I found the same powder on the wall. It has ruined my...


Actually, your purifier is working as it should. The black soot is due to the negatives ions which attach themselves to the smoke/dust/dirt particles in the room and make them drop to floor. If you don't smoke it won't be much of a problem. Some minor residue will be found in and around the unit but this comes about because the negative ions make dust and other particulates fall to the floor. A quick wipe or vacuum easily eliminates this problem. Besides, I would rather have them on the floor than floating around in the air, wouldn't you?
