The following was reported: We purchased a IQ Pure Air 3000 and two smaller IQ Pure Air 50's from (name) at a Home Show in (city), BC. They said these would improve the air quality in our home and were good for allergy and asthma sufferers and this is why we bought them. Total cost: $985. We used them in our home from Jan 20 to Mar 28, 2020 (69 days). The larger IQ 3000 unit was placed on a shelf above my computer which is in a large open area of about 900-1000sqft, and was normally set to 500. The 2 smaller devices were used in each of our kids' rooms; one in the basement and one on the main floor. The rep said we could set it to the sqft. of the area being used including rooms with open doors.

The following was reported: Over the next 2 months, I gradually experienced painful sores that would come and go; especially on my hands, I got sores inside my nose, and on other parts of my skin. I sat directly below the unit for 2 weeks a month while I worked on my computer, which explains why my symptoms would come and go. On March 17 my son had a severe asthma attack. After his episode he increased the output on the device in his room AND the one above my computer to 1000 (still within the sqft), which is why I presume my symptoms started getting worse. By Mar 28 my symptoms had got much worse; I had dry eyes, a dry throat, my hands became extremely dry and cracked with open sores and lotions didn't help, overall I felt poorly and realized something was very wrong and not normal. I decided to investigate ozone generating devices online and found out the dangers. I turned them off immediately and my symptoms are now starting to improve.
