    Air Purifiers Create Smog

    Here's how to create your own personal Stage 2 Smog Alert: Buy an indoor air purifier.

    Using a popular process called ionization, the air cleaners can actually generate ozone levels in a room that exceed the worst smog days in Los Angeles, a new study finds.

    Is this the same California that recently banned the gas lawn mower? They didn't ban the rest of the small engines,,,,,rototillers, garden tractors, recreation vehicles, four wheelers, motorcar racing......and etc.

    They are rather inconsistent, which makes their statements rather dubious in my mind.

    We have two air cleaners running in our house and wife is not suffering from any ill effects.

    Relax Jim, they may change their minds tomorrow, like they do with coffee consumption.........

    Cheers,

    Jim

    And the same CA that is/was trying to regulate methane produced by cow manure! Maybe they should increase taxes on pinto beans too. [​IMG] :D

    Yep, the ozone created by "air purifiers" is indeed much more toxic than carbon monoxide. But there isn't much of it generated.

    Bottom line, if you have one of these, you're spending money to fix a problem you likely don't have, but if you do, you're making it worse.
