My feelings for the Healthy Living Air Purifier (which is also branded as Ecoquest , Vollara , and Alpine Air) are very mixed. This air purifier design, and company, has had nine lives. There are some dangers in ozone, although they work very well to clean the air for two specific areas of air purification. It's now sold under the name Vollara. It has been a Network Marketing product in each incarnation. I originally knew it back in 1985 as Alpine Air Purifier, and I owned one.
If you're wondering why it changed company names so frequently it's because of the very problems they had with the government over Ozone dangers. They also made outradgeous claims about what their air purifiers could do for health conditions. The recent selling of Healthy Living Air Purifier to Vollara (anotehr MLM Company) was financial. The earlier name changes allowed them to stay in business when the lung problems from ozone started to become public. High levels of ozone can harm lungs. For an explanation of Ozone watch the video further down.

SHOCK TREATMENT WITH OZONE: Here's how I have used this Air Purifier : Every week or so I crank it up and leave it on in a room for several hours. Then I shut it off, open the door (or windows) and let the remaining ozone dissipate for several hours before I go back in. i like doing this to my bedroom, bathroom and on an occasion when I have a mold or odor problem (kitchen, garage, or basement).
