The Ionic Breeze is a POS. It does not move enough air to effectively
clean anything. The velocities through the unit are very low, they
range from 40 feet per minute (FPM) to 125 FPM. The plate area is very
small as well. A good fan or system powered air cleaner will have
higher velocities, 300 to 500 FPM and a much larger filter or plate
area to filter much more air.
The Honeywell Enviracare is supposed to be a good unit, but it uses a
prefilter and a HEPA. I don't know what filters cost. I would
recommend a duct mounted electronic air cleaner such as Research
Products 5000. Or Research Products Space Guard 2200 or 2400.
Electronic Air Cleaners should be cleaned every month. If they last a
year between cleanings, there is something wrong.
