The Real Truth About The Ionic Breeze Air Purifiers By Sharper Image
The information in this article is brought to you by Absolute Air Cleaners and Purifiers Inc.
At Absolute Air Cleaners we get a lot of customers who used to own Ionic Breeze Air Purifiers. Many of these people were fooled by Sharper Image’s expert marketing tactics to believe that they were buying a product that would improve the IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) of their home.
The real truth about the Ionic Breeze by Sharper Image is quite different.
The Ionic Breeze states that it is the quietest air purifier on the market and indeed it is very quite. That is because there is no actual fan in it. That means there is no way for the unit to filter the dirty air in the room and remove it from the environment. The only thing it does is collects a very small amount of particles with its small collector plate attached to the front of the unit. This collector plate only attracts particles from about 1/8” away meaning the rest of the room is left completely unfiltered. To top it off the small collector plate gets dirty relatively fast and ceases to function all together at that point.
Dust, allergens, mites, pollen, dander, and smoke are all left to float through the air without proper fans and ventilation in an air purifier, which is why the Ionic Breeze is not a wise purchase. On top of the poor ability to clean the air the Ionic Breeze also emits Ozone. Ozone can be a huge irritant for people with asthma and other lung diseases.
It is not our intention to bad mouth Sharper Image as we think they have other great products, however the Ionic Breeze is not one of them and we want all of our customers to be aware.
