Air Filtration in your House: Aireox Air Filters
I love this air filter. I sold my farm and moved into an apartment that was still off-gassing from being built. I bought two of these and they were a life saver. If I turned them off for a few hours the difference in air quality was quite noticeable. So, they are great for VOCs in new houses. People using them for moldy houses like them as they are cleanable which most air filtration units are not. Some people have purchased other units that are hard to clean and ended up throwing them away when the unit became moldy. I would be more inclined to use an ozone machine (when you are out of the house) than an air filter for mold. However, the feedback is that this machine can be useful.
I have purchased a few similar ozone machines that have all been good. This is the last one I purchased and it works fine. These machines seem to have problems some times. Every once in awhile people get a bad one. I did at one point.
