OVERVIEW:

The Flair Air Purifiers are one of the Ozone generating line created by Ecoquest and now Vollara. We're going to take you inside this purifier and also do a particle test on it (see the video below). You may already have the question most do: "Are Ozone air purifiers dangerous?". We'll get to the answer on that further down the page after we cover some basics. The Video on Ozone below explains Ozone, what it is, and more of the story behind Ozone.

Many years ago I purchased an Alpine Air Purifier for about $300 from a friend. I loved how the room felt after using it, and the smell of Ozone in the air. We used it in our home for removing mold and odors. At that time the Alpine Company ( a multi-level company) were in high gear, with many Distributors leaving them in people's homes to try out. Alpine later became Ecoquest, because the EPA discovered that these air purifiers were producing potentially high levels of Ozone.

There seems to be quite a few repair centers online, which is good because word on the street is that Vollara's buyout of Ecoquest excludes any warranties of the Ecoquest line.
