IQ Air Hyper Hepa air purifier machines gives off a strange smell...
(Mississauga, Ontario (Canada))
For starters, the salesperson gave us a brochure on IQ Air Hyper Hepa air purifier machines, and didn't mention what model we have.
I now look at the website, and it looks like there are so many models. Sadly, the company doesn't even put a label on the actual model so that we know what model we have.
It is odd. We paid just over 1000 dollars for this model, because it was promoted as the best by the salesperson of course, for my sons severe allergies.
After showing us that this model can kill off dust and particles down to the smallest particle, we thought that it was a good choice for my son. Now, I don't even know what model we own.
I recommend that the company put some sort of label about the model number on the actual case and the box so that consumers know which one they have purchased. They all look the same, or similar, so how do you actually know which one you are getting? Not good.
Secondly, we have had this model for approximately one month now, perhaps less, and it id starting to give off a really odd chemical odour. I slept in my son's room last night, because I was concerned about this smell.
I woke up with a headache. My little boy said that he didn't notice the smell. What is that smell? I don't believe that off-gassing has suddenly happened one month after having the actual machine.
On a positive note, I have noticed that there isn't as much dust on the floor as with the previous hepa filter that was in my son's room.
The other one was a very noisy one, and we now keep that one in our room, and have this quiet one in my son's room.
I also like that it has 6 settings, so that I can put it on high (6) during the day, and lower (2) at night, so that it is quieter.
Still...I am concerned about that odd chemical smell coming from the IQ Air Purifier. I would love to have someone explain what that is all about.
Is that a sign that I need to change the filter or something? I also wish that the company would put some sort of label on it so that we would actually know which model we have purchased.
The outside box called it the IQ Air Health Pro Plus, but there was no code number about the series, like the 100 or 250 or 300 or whatever.
Otherwise, we are happy with it. Will look into the smell issue.
