Users' feedback

Users quotes on Amazon.comThis is a surprisingly quiet machine, so much so that with regular activity going on around the house we easily forget it's even on. We have used it at night in the bedroom as well, and it is very quiet. It lights up in a vertical strip on both sides of the machine (orange for poor air quality, green for average, and blue for good) but surprisingly as well the lights are not very obtrusive. We have another purifier from another maker which is slimmer and takes up less space, but it is much noisier and the light is a lot brighter. We recently had a house guest for a few days who came down with a cold (+ cough) and fever. We used this in the guest room where he was sleeping and in the living room/dining room area. This is a busy time for all of us with non-stop work, school and after-school activity schedules and inadequate sleep, and I was so nervous that we would all end up catching this friend's bug. We ended up escaping it, and I believe that this air purifier contributed to that. My son has bad seasonal allergies and so far he's been okay. He came home one day saying that he had sneezed non-stop at school. In the past if he had allergies at school, then he'd continue sneezing at home. This time he didn't have it so bad at home. Time will tell if this machine is the reason so I'll need to wait until the spring when he is especially sensitive. Our purifier is blue nearly all the time. We have noticed, though, that after cooking dinner it changes color. We leave the purifier in the dining and living room area, about 3-4 feet from the entrance of the kitchen (we don't have a door). Once we've sat down to eat in the dining room, we notice that the light has changed to green, and it changes back to blue by the end of the meal. A good sign that it's working."

Users quotes on Amazon.comThe AC230 is my first air purifier from Delonghi-this model is designed to clean the air in a 220sq ft room, and it does it in a number of ways using no less than 5 filters. Setting up the unit is quite simple. The front is secured by magnets and detaches quite easily. One has only to place the nano silver filter, hepa/carbon filter, followed by the washable prefilter. Permanently installed behind all of these is the photo catalytic filter with a uvc lamp. There is also an optional ionizer. Of these, only the combination Hepa/carbon filter need ever be replaced. The idea is that the prefilter sifts out the large particles, followed by the hepa filter to get out the micro particles. The attached carbon filter is to get out the bad odors, smoke etc. The nano silver filter and photo catalytic filter with uvc lamp would be for bacteria and other pathogens. The ionizer, which can be turned on or off, theoretically uses negative ions to help remove dust and smoke by combining with positively charged dust particles to form larger particles that can then be filtered by the purifier or at least drop to the floor. I must say I like the look of the unit. It is sleek and pretty aesthetic for an air purifier. When you turn it on, the auto mode kicks in and the unit tests the air. LED lights on both sides of the unit (which, thank god can be turned off,) give a visual feedback of the quality of the air: Orange for bad, green for satisfactory and blue for good. When powered up, the unit always starts with orange and over a 10 minute period or so cycles to blue. The unit is also supposed to respond to changes in air purity by changing fan speeds accordingly. I am suspicious of how sensitive the sensors are in my unit. I own a BlueAir 220c which i keep in my bedroom."
