The Ionic Pro Compact - Full sized performance at an affordable price

  The Ionic Pro Compact is actually a compact version of the original, full-sized Ionic Pro.

Like the full-sized Ionic Pro, the Ionic Pro Compacts' ionic filtering technology can purify a room by removing various types of airborne pollutants, allergens and irritants, delivering fresh, clean purified air – all without the use of filters or high energy costs.

What does Ionic Pro Compact Air Purifier offer its Users?

  • Filtering Technologies Used

  • As an ionic purifier, the Pro Compact filtering technology consists of internal ionizing wires that emit negative ions that attach themselves to airborne pollutants within the unit.

    The charged particles are then trapped on three negatively charged steel particle collection blades. Clean ionized air is then expelled back into the room.

  • Peformance
  • The Ionic Pro Compact air purifier can purify small- to medium-sized rooms (20’ x 10’), up to 250 sq. ft.

    It is capable of removing various types of airborne pollutants down to 1 micron such as dust particles, pollen, odors, pet dander, smoke and so much more. The collection blades are simply wiped clean on a regular basis therefore, there is no need to buy costly filters unlike other types of air purifiers.

    Since the Pro Compact operates without noisy fans or motors, this unit is extremely quiet while in operation.

    The Pro Compact has two speeds that are adequate enough to purify a room. The low setting is good for smaller rooms that don’t require much filtering.

    The unit will cycle on for 25 seconds and then cycle off for 25 seconds continuously. The high setting is good for medium-sized rooms requiring heavy-duty cleaning. The unit stays on continuously.

    All ionic purifiers produce ozone gas as a by-product. Ozone can be harmful if in high concentrations. With the Pro Compact, this air purifier complies with the U.S. safety requirements for low ozone emission (less than 50 parts per billion) therefore this unit’s ozone emission level is safe for the household.

  • Economical Factor
  • With its low power consumption of less than 12 watts, the Pro Compact saves you money on the electricity bill as well as conserves energy.

    The Pro Compact is so energy-efficient, that it literally costs just pennies per day to operate.

    With no expensive filters that need replacing on a regular basis, this air purifier does not drain your wallet unlike other types of air purifiers out on the market today.

  • Ease of Use
  • The Compact Ionic Pro requires very little time and effort to maintain in proper working condition.

    The three steel particle blades just require cleaning by wiping with a damp cloth on a regular basis. Its convenient clean indicator light blinks red when it is time to wipe down the blades thus saving you the hassle of trying to remember the cleaning schedule.

    The three-blade assembly unit is very easy to dislodge from the unit for a thorough cleaning, and then placed back into the unit to continue operation.

    Its 1-touch control easy operation feature allows you to just press a button and go, the air purifier will do the rest.

    The assembly level/degree of difficulty for this unit is easy.

  • Maintenance Requirements
  •   The manufacture states that the collection blades need to be cleaned on a monthly basis or more, if the environment is heavily polluted. The clean indicator light will light up to alert you that the blades need to be cleaned.

    The collection blades are easily cleaned either by wiping down with a damp cloth or by washing with soap and water. It is very important that the blades completely dry for at least 24 hours before placing them back into the unit or else the purifier could become damaged.

    The manufacture recommends purchasing an extra set of collection blades so that the Pro Compact can be in continuous operation while one set of blades is drying.

    The internal ionizing wires need to be cleaned every 2 weeks or sooner if the Wire Clean Indicator Light lights up or the unit starts to make a buzzing noise. Simple utilize the attached wire cleaning mechanism to scrape off excess particles from the wires.

  • Additional Features Offered
    • Clean Indicator Light – Blinks red when it is time to clean the blades.
    • Wire Clean Indicator Light – Lights up when it is time to clean the internal ionizing wires.
    • Wire Cleaning Mechanism – an attachment that cleans the internal ionizing wires.
    • The Ionic Pro swivels for ideal placement.
    • Dimensions: 8.5” x 8” x 20.5”
    • Weight: 14 pds.
  • Price and Warranty
  • For ½ the price of leading competitors, the Pro Compact costs on average $100, depending on the retailer.

    The replacement blades cost on average $30. The collection blades can be easily purchased by ordering from the manufacturer’s website.

    The Pro Compact is usually sold as a bonus package deal which entails receiving 2 Compact Pro air purifiers, 1 car ionizer, and a personal air freshener – all for the price of one Pro Compact unit.

    The Pro Compact comes with a 1-year limited warranty.

The Pro Compact with its easy operation; portable, diminutive size; and powerful performance is an exceptional value for the price.

Its one filtering technology is capable of removing various airborne contaminants down to the size of 1 micron. However, unlike other types of air purifiers with HEPA filters or multiple filtering technologies in one unit, the Pro Compact is incapable of removing microorganisms or VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) from the air.

But for those with respiratory diseases such as allergies and asthma, the Pro Compact is effective in purifying the air from those airborne irritants responsible for respiratory problems.
