See Airfree’s effectiveness at work.
This laboratory-conducted test shows how Airfree acts to prevent mould.
How does it work?
Airfree’s exclusive technology works by eliminating microorganisms and allergens, destroying them in a fraction of a second. Depending on the model, between 14,000 and 20,000 litres of air pass through the Airfree device every hour, treating all the air in the room in a very short space of time.
The process works in much the same way as sterilising water by boiling it; when water is boiled, the microorganisms it contains are eliminated. In similar fashion, Airfree continually draws in air from the room, heating it to over 400°F and instantly sterilising it. The purified air is then cooled inside the device before being returned to the room.
The entire process is completely silent and requires no maintenance, not even the occasional replacement of parts. All you have to do is switch the device on and leave it to get on with the job.

- 1. How does Airfree work?
Airfree destroys microorganisms at its heated capillaries. Contaminated air is dragged into Airfree’s ceramic core by air convection and microorganisms are destroyed at high temperatures regardless of how resistant and dangerous they might be.
2. Are there any side effects?
No. Airfree’s new technology uses heat to purify the air. No side effects, no emissions, NO IONS, nor new particles are generated. Airfree® should be used in all homes and offices, quietly, constantly, and efficiently purifying the air.
3. My Airfree does not stop blinking. What does that mean?(*)
Cause 1: Airfree incorporates an automatic energy-saving feature by automatically shutting off the ceramic core when it has reached a temperature range to facilitate air convection (air in the room is drawn into the machine to destroy impurities, contaminants and odours). The ceramic core shuts down for a few minutes, the indicator light turns off, and the top lights emitting diode (L.E.D.) blinks. Airfree continues to sterilize the air during this time. This indicates the conservation of electric power consumption and the preservation of the ceramic core.
Cause 2: Another contributory factor to Airfree’s blinking occurrence is the ambient air (air in the environment). When the ambient air reaches 35 ºC, Airfree® auto-regulates itself with the ceramic core “shut off” for a few minutes but still continues with its sterilizing activity (the blinking of the top lights and the fade away of the side LED on models P40/P60/ P80/ P125/ P150 and just the fade away of the side LED on model E40/ E60/ E80/ E125, signals this occurrence). In this process energy is conserved and Airfree’s safety mechanism is enhanced.
Cause 3: Airfree incorporates state of the art electronics detecting any improper placement or device malfunctioning. If the top lights does not stop blinking, please ensure that your Airfree® unit is in the upright position. If the top and bottom air inlets are free of blockage, the blinking may be due to a faulty electrical outlet. Please plug it in into a proper outlet. If in the next 10 minutes the top lights continues blin-king and your Airfree® unit is correctly installed, this indicates that the device may be malfunctioning. Please promptly contact your dealer in such case.
(*) The Airfree E40/E60/E80/E125 does not incorporate the Anti-stress lights.
4. Is there any risk when the top light of Airfree is blinking?(*)
No. When Airfree electronics detect any irregularity it automatically shuts off the TSS™ ceramic core.
(*) The Airfree E40/E60/E80/E125 does not incorporate the Anti-stress lights.
5. What is Airfree’s air cleaning capacity?
Airfree P1000 was designed for rooms up to 450 sq. ft. (42m²), Airfree P2000 Platinum was designed for rooms up to 550 sq. ft. (51m²). Airfree P3000 Onix was designed for rooms up to 650 sq. ft. (61m²).
6. Can I install Airfree in my walking closet ?
Yes, as long as it has at least 330cu.ft. (10m³)*. Airfree® should not be placed under shelves or its efficiency will be reduced.
* as reference 330cu.ft. (10m³) is approximately 7’x7’.
7. Can I use Airfree in air conditioned rooms?
8. How do I know if Airfree is no longer working?
Check the top lid, if warm Airfree is working.
9. Can I place Airfree at the corridor to reach the whole house?
No. Airfree will just reduce air pollution in the corridor’s area.
10. Can I place Airfree in a closed room?
Yes. Please remember such a room must have at least 330cu.ft. (10m³)*.
* as a reference 330cu.ft. is approximately 7’x7’.
11. Does Airfree eliminate bacteria and viruses?
Yes. Unlike the air filters in the market Airfree® is more efficient with the smallest microorganisms as they are easily carried by Airfree’s airflow into its heated ceramic core.
12. Can I change Airfree from one room to another?
Airfree must always be plugged in the same room 24 hours a day. Airfree’s patented technology works gradually and cannot have its cycle interrupted. Moving it from one room to another will interrupt the cycle and will recontaminate the room. See question 13 bellow.
13. Should I turn off Airfree when I leave house?
No. Airfree must always be on.
14. What happens if Airfree is disconnected or there was a black out?
Airfree will take approximately the same time to recover the previous reduced contamination level.
15. Does CADR measure the effectiveness of the Airfree?
Not at all. CADR is not designed to test the Airfree technology.
The AHAM seal (usually found on the back of an air cleaner’s box) lists three Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) numbers: one for tobacco smoke, one for pollen and one for dust. The CADR indicates volume of filtered air delivered by an air cleaner. The higher the tobacco smoke, pollen and dust numbers, the faster the unit filters the air. The main reason why CADR is not designed for Airfree is because Aifree does not filter but destroys microorganisms instead, CADR only applies to volume of filtered air delivered by an air cleaner as stated above. CADR does not measure microorganism reduction like mould and bacteria only detectable by a microbiology lab. Airfree destroys (not trap or attract to other surface) any microorganism regardless of how small they might be. 99,99% of all organic particles are fully destroyed when passing through the Airfree U.S. patented ceramic core.
16. How does Airfree destroy dust mites?
Mould reduction in the environment causes reduction in the mould dependant dust mite population. Airfree also destroys the harmful toxins and fungus freed by dust mite feces that trigger respiratory allergies.
17. How does Airfree eliminate fungi?
As mentioned before, Airfree eliminates airborne microorganisms included fungi and spores. By eliminating spores new colonies are unlikely to develop, representing less future airborne spores.
18. How does Airfree® destroy viruses?
Those microscopic microorganisms are easily eliminated inside Airfree’s ceramic core capillaries. The temperature inside of Aifree’s capillaries is much higher than required to incinerate them. Airfree® is your greatest ally in respiratory disease prevention.
19. Does Airfree reduce tobacco smell?
Yes, Airfree reduces any kind of organic smell in the ambience including tobacco.
20. Does Airfree release any gas or chemical product?
No. Airfree’s sterilisation process is natural. Please check our website for conclusive tests regarding particles and ozone.
21. Does Airfree heat up a room?
No. Airfree does not noticeable increase room temperature. To have an idea 2 Airfrees plugged in the same room will contribute as much heat as the presence of one adult in that same room.
22. Does Airfree provoke any change in room’s the relative humidity?
23. Does Airfree need filter replacement?
24. Does Airfree consume a lot of energy?
No. Airfree’s consumption is just 45 Watts for P1000, 48 Watts for P2000 and 52 Watts for P3000 Onix.
25. Does Airfree anti-stress light interfere with Airfree sterilising function?(*)
No. The anti-stress light has an esthetic effect may be relaxing or simply used as a night light in children or newborn bedrooms. According to chromo therapy the blue light has calming and relaxing effect.
(*) The Airfree E range does not incorporate the Anti-stress lights.
26. Where do the microorganisms go after they are destroyed?
As all living organisms, microorganisms and their products are basically composed by carbon, oxigen and nitrogen. Since Airfree reachs nearly 414F, all the components are supposed to suffer a combustion process, which liberates carbone dioxide (the same product released by our respiration) and water. Some carbon (or ashes) may remain in the process. If there is some residual allergen left, we might consider that they suffer denaturation, a process involving lost of conformation and function. It should be noted that we are talking about reactions that occur in a microscopic level, so all these processes or by-products won’t be perceived. In this case, there is no need to worry about maintenance.
27. How does Airfree clean the air without a fan?
Airfree's patented Technology TSS™ (Thermodynamic Sterilizing System) generates airflow quietly through air convection and sterilizes air at high temperatures. The airflow generated by Airfree happens by air convection and equals 14 m³/hr according to the SP Swedish National Laboratory test shown on our website. Cooler and contaminated air is then continuously drawn into Airfree®. There is no need for a noisy fan. Airfree®'s exclusive TSS™ technology has been proven to be effective by some of the world's most prestigious independent laboratories in six different countries in real working conditions. You can find the test results on our website www.airfree.com in the section TESTS.
28. Does Airfree reduce the necessity of dusting surfaces?
A The operation of an Airfree unit does not eliminate the usual dusting frequencies. Airfree is not an air filter that “traps” dust. It incinerates dust particles turning them into harmless components.
29. Can a particle counter measure the Airfree efficiency?
Several air purifiers are using particle counters in order to measure their filters’ efficiency.
Airfree does not filter nor trap particles. The patented Airfree TSS technology is not a filter. Therefore, the particle counter is not designed to measure the efficiency of Airfree’s technology.
Why is that?
Firstly, particle counters are used to count the quantity of particles at the outlet of an air purifier. As mentioned before, Airfree is not a filter and does not trap particles; therefore, the quantity of particles entering and exiting the unit will be pretty much the same. However - and here goes the explanation as to why the Airfree technology is efficient and the particle counter does not recognize it:
Secondly, the particle counter will not tell you if the particles are alive or not - harmful or not.
What are particles?
Particles are any air contaminants floating in your room, such as: dust mite feces and skeletons, hair, dead skin, pollens, bacteria (dead or alive), viruses (dead or alive), fabrics remains, mold spores (dead or alive), pet dander, car emissions and many others.
The Airfree TSS technology destroys microorganisms by combustion (application of high temperatures of around 400ºF) and hereby turns micro-organic contaminants into denatured particles. When organic particles are combusted, their proteins are denatured, i.e. the particles lose their original structure and are made harmless. These harmless particles are released back into the environment after the combustion process and are therefore still detected by the particle counter. However, as mentioned before, the counter will not tell if the particles are harmful or not, dead or alive.
How do we know if invisible particles floating in the room are harmless/destroyed?
Rather than presenting customers with CADR or CFM ratings, we at Airfree go straight to the point and prove to our customers what they really expect from an air purifier – real benefits – Airfree aims at goals and not at the means. The goal is to see a mold and bacteria reduction in the room and that is what our patented Airfree TSS technology proves (http://www.airfree.com/testes/testeshome_usa.htm).
Considering the before said, the Airfree TSS technology offers several advantages such as:
* Maintenance free operation
* Environmental protection – no replacement
* No need to touch or change contaminated parts
The claims Airfree makes on mold and bacteria reduction are backed by independent tests performed in real working environments.
We at Airfree go straight to the point and inform our customers of what the proven mold and bacteria reduction of our patented TSS (Thermodynamic Sterilization System) technology is – 85 – 95% (please see our tests at …). Airfree destroys all airborne microorganisms, no matter what size.
Our final question to the customer: Do you prefer to purchase an air purifier which claims a high CADR or CFM rating or one that offers the real benefits: mold, bacteria and ozone reduction in real working conditions? We at Airfree show real facts. The decision is up to you. We will be glad to clarify any remaining doubts.
30. Why does a dust mite allergic (as myself) get better with Airfree?
Basically, dust mite allergens, of which DERP1 is most famous one (skeletons, excrements), are lighter than dust mites.
If they are lighter, they become airborne dust. Once they are airborne, they are destroyed by the Airfree heat as Cambrige test illustrate.
Another theory is that some dust mite species like D. farinae need yeast to help their digestion (1). As you may know Airfree reduces yeast and mold (source: ÁCAROS CONTAMINANTES DE AMBIENTES E CAUSADORES DE DOENÇAS ALÉRGICAS NO HOMEM, CROCE, J. - Professor de Pós Graduação em Alergia na Faculdade de Medicina da USP..BAGGIO, D. - Foi professor do Departamento de Parasitologia do Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas.)
D pteronyssinus dust mites eat no fat, only human skin. If fat is found on the skin they need Aspergillus mold to help digestion (1). ( source: ÁCAROS CONTAMINANTES DE AMBIENTES E CAUSADORES DE DOENÇAS ALÉRGICAS NO HOMEM, CROCE, J. - Professor de Pós Graduação em Alergia na Faculdade de Medicina da USP.. BAGGIO, D. - Foi professor do Departamento de Parasitologia do Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas.)
With Airfree, there is less mold available in the environment, therefore dust mites might starve. This is only a theory, very difficult to prove since tests would not separate living dust mite from the dead ones.
31. What is the amount of air that is moved per minute by the Airfree P3000? Will it exchange the air in a 344.4 sq. ft. room once a day? Once an hour?
Please note that it takes around 5 hours for Airfree to silently circulate the air in a room of 344,4 sq. ft. at a ceiling height of 8 feet. Therefore, there will be around 4 to 5 air exchanges per 24 hours.
However, what is of real importance to us at Airfree is how much less mold spores and bacteria will be in the room itself, which will allow our customers to feel better.
We therefore performed more than 20 tests with independent laboratories in real working conditions, which prove an average microorganism reduction of 85 to 97% in the room itself.

A. Creswell From London 06/01/2006"I know this sounds nuts but I have bought several high end air filtration / purification systems and they are all motorised with fans and HEPA filters etc. etc. and compared to this they are rubbish. I just don't get how this works. It sits there doing apparently nothing. The side of the box shows a graph with particulates (pollen, pet dander etc.) dropping heavily by week2 and virtually eliminated by week4. There's no fans, moving parts or anything it just sits there. Yet make no mistakle whatsoever it is waaay more effective. I was so dissapointed not to see it doing something or working or making a noise I swapped it out for a fan/ion based filer system and I noticed the difference with a couple of days. For the WORST !!! So I swapped them around again. If you're a bloke you're going to be dissapointed ... you won't seeing anything happening at all. However give it two weeks and you will sleep and breathe far easier. It's great, I'll be buying another soon."
Breathing Easy From New Milford, CTThis is a great product to use if you have issues with mold and hate constantly buying expensive HEPA filters for other air cleaners. The Airfree air purifier just needs to be plugged in. No upkeep and no filter changing. It even seems to keep my room less dusty, always a perk. Some people will probably still need a HEPA filter air cleaner with this product, but I don't. My asthma gets good control by using this product if there isn't a heavy influx of mold through an HVAC.
By A customer From Los Angeles 7/16/2010Works on mold and mildew allergy
This device works on mold in the air. I could tell the pretty impressive effect within about twenty four hours. This version is more powerful than another one, the P100, that I have tried and that one also worked very well. This one is the most powerful they have right now and the column of warm air is slightly more intense than on the lower powered one. This one produces enough heated convection to notice if you put your hand about four inches above it. It still isn't what I would call hot though or even very warm. The blue light is still a good warning not to drape something over it which of course you're not supposed to do! The main thing is how long it will last as it is meant to run continuously. So far after a month there are no problems. This took care of the basement mold allergy problem in a 12 by 20 foot room. There was nothing to assemble. It comes out of the box and you plug it in where nothing can block the top vent and that's it. One of the most useful things I've bought in a while.
By Dr Diana Samways MD From Haslemere, Surrey 02/04/2010"As a physician specialising in allergy and environmental medicine I am very impressed with the Airfree Air Steriliser as a way of keeping the air free of allergens.I can wholeheartedly recommend this machine for anybody with a serious allergy to mould and other airborne allergens. I recommend it to my patients with this problem."
By Jane Bowers From Houston, TX 2/20/2010I like it very much, quiet and soothing. I don't know how well it cleans the air...National Consumers Report (or Consumers Guide) does not list Airfree.
By Janet P From Boynton Beach, FL 7/24/2010Exceptional machine
This machine successfully removed the aspergillis mold from my room. I have serious lung disease and am highly allergic to mold- i did a mold test before and after having it in place for 1 week- and it worked wonders- mold was gone! i haven't even explored what other benefits it has, ie smells etc- i'm so happy with this result.
By Jen From Portland, OR 7/4/2010Asthma fix
Having recently been diagnosed with asthma I was anxious to find a good air purifier for my bedroom. I opted for the Airfree Onix 3000 because it was not only rated highly but, amazingly, required no maintenance. Within a matter of hours after plugging it in I noticed that the air smelled a lot fresher and the first morning after having the purifier in my room I woke up with almost no congestion in my nose (a first!)so it must be doing a good job of getting rid of the allergens. The best part is that because I am a light sleeper it's wonderful to have a purifier that is totally silent. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the anti-stress light but it's kind of a pretty so I may just leave it on. It's too early to comment on this product's longevity but I am extremely happy with it so far. So happy, in fact, that I am ordering 2 more for other parts of our house.
AUNT DANNO From ORANGE, CA 08/04/2011My husband has stopped snoring and I am now getting a good nights rest.
Becca From London 04/06/2010"I have tried them all! Most don't work or are too noisey and cost way more money. This little unit has done more to help my allergies (pollen and mold) than any other device. I have 7 of theses in different sizes. In a damp area these are a must have!
I have read other reviewers say they don't like the smell, it goes away in a few days."
By Adrian Essigmann From Troupsburg, NY 2/21/2010Your product is seriously amazing! My daughter was blowing her nose for an hour straight at bed time! Now you don't hear her blow her nose at all before bed. It has been a serious answer to prayer. Thank you for such a fine product.
By DH "health nut" From (PA) 01/13/2010It Works!
I purchased this because my home contained visable mold and who knows what's hidden behind the drywall. In addition, the lower level of the home often had a funny smell (not really moldy, just funny, kind of earthy), and since I moved, the dog and cat are really itchy. I read one of the reviews for this product on another site where someone had a mold remediator come in 4 times and it didn't work, so I decided to try this first, since it's cheaper, and it is supposed to remove more than just mold. I plugged this in in the family room on the lower level. It originally gives off a mild burning smell that subsides after a few days. Soon, the lower level of my home had no more funny smells and both the cat and dog prefer to sleep in that room as opposed to all other rooms. I just ordered a second one for the mid level of my home and plan to get a smaller one for the bedroom. I'm very pleased with it. Don't know that it got rid of the mold, but it did get rid of the smell and both the dog and cat think it's doing a good thing, since they had no interest in that room prior to the Airfree. To me, that says a lot.
Ok, had to edit this because I got the second airfree for the living room level and that's been running about 2 weeks now. They say it takes a month to work, but my itchy dog, who had rubbed all the hair off her eye and had large scabs on her rear by her tail (the vet was the one who originally put the air purifier idea in my head) has stopped rubbing her face, her eye's no longer red and it appears that the hair's even making an effort to regrow and all the scabs on her rear are gone! She's not on any meds for this either so that's not the cause of her improvement. This is more than I could have hoped for. She's much more comfortable and will now hang with us in the livingroom. I just ordered a small one for my bedroom. Now we'll see how it does on my morningtime stuffy nose :-) Ps. still no funny smells on the lower level!
By Mrs Gray From Sheffield, UK 01/01/2007"I open my door to my bedroom and it's like walking into fresh air."
By Zombiegoth "Z" From UK 11/21/2007"This Airfree P125 Platinum purifier works a treat, it stopped my son coughing all night within 48 hours, stopped ME from coughing all day within 48 hours. It is intended to be a stationary item, (ie, not to be moved from place to place), for maximum benefit, but, at this price, you have to buy one & move it around to see what benefits you gain from it, and the benefits are easy to see." If you, or someone in your household, suffers from asthma, and you live in a polluted area (ie. the S.E. of England, among others) this is a MUST HAVE (even if you have to sell the dog to pay it), ask for it as a Christmas present from your Parents/Grandparents/Inlaws ANYONE, but get one!!! I cannot recommend it highly enough, it's fantastic, and i shall be purchasing more (as soon as i can afford it), as, ideally, you'd need one in every room, not all of this size though, they do come in smaller (and cheaper forms).
E.A.G – Medical Doctor From USA 02/01/2008It is my 90 year old husband who has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for whom I bought the Airfree. He thinks it has been most helpful to him and would not be without it!
Aside from being most effective, it is also virtually maintenance-free. I certainly can recommend it highly.
I hope this will be of some help to you and if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Ellen the Rolfer From Asheville, NC 05/12/2011I have used various air purifiers over the years and for the money this is by far the best one yet. Has totally cleared the mold from my office. I have one at home as well. I like it.
Etta From Petoskey, MI 02/19/2011My assistant and I moved into a new office in the fall. We spent the entire winter and early spring passing a respiratory infection back and forth. After placing the airpurifier in the office, within days all the coughing and sneezing stopped. I am going to buy one for my bedroom next.
shedozmaco Southampton, NY 12/18/2009"I have never taken the time to note the quality of a product but recently I am finding the fact that other people do so is very helpful to me, so here goes. I have rented a Hamptons home for two summers and a winter and this winter I had a very unpleasant surprise, roof leaks of various natures (which were all immediately repaired) and a terrible stench resulting from mold which is clearly through all the walls. I had a friend with this issue in a home out here and it cost them north of 50k to clean and repair their 11,000 square foot residence so I wasnt very surprised when my landlord wasnt willing to do the same. I am a health nut and I am not particularly sensitive to smells so I was getting somewhat frantic with respect to the problem which was causing me to feel like I had the flu round the clock, even my dogs were coughing. Through research I found allergybuyersclub on the web. Their products were highly recommended per other filtration websites and quite frankly I havent been able to find another silent mold elimination solution anywhere. I started with two of their IQ Air Health Pro's. The fan noise is driving me crazy and while they work well, the lower speed which I can tolerate from a noise standpoint isnt sufficiently effective. I then ordered one Onix 3000 which is blessedly silent and yes as another review noted there is a slight metallic smell most likely caused by the incineration of the particles. After the stench of a serious mold issue I found this a mild scent very welcome. I have found that with the serious nature of my problem the 3000 unit is only able to cover about 300 square feet (most likely due to my 20+ foot ceilings in the primary living areas. However in a small bedroom it was extraordinarily effective (my mother who is extremely sensitive to smell and particularly to the smell of mold or mildew recently visited and reported that her room where I tested this was the only room in the house where she was completely comfortable). So, in short if you consider the cost of remediation and purchase 10 or so of these instead, in my opinion its a very sound maintenance free investment. I have just placed an order for my next round and I hope to purchase enough of them to end my misery shortly."
achoo From Texas 02/19/2010"The air purifier works great--it is totally silent and there are no filters to purchase or change. Best of all, I am no longer coughing from the mold spores.
The air purifier was well packed for shipping."
AM From Boston, MA 5/19/2008I'm not quite sure how this is working as I got it for my office at work. I have asthma and allergies and my office is seeming like a very "sick" place (mold was found and taken care of but I am suspicious of it growing back). I think I would really notice the benefits of a purifier if I got one at home as well. [...] It's also completely silent, compact, and no maintenance. But because I haven't notice a big difference in my general health I only gave it the 3 stars.
By Ced From Gwynned, Wales 02/14/2010"We suffer from asthma at home and used to live in a city on a busy road right next to traffic lights. The Airfree air sterilizer improved the air quality dramatically and the peak flow measures showed an improvement too. Best of it is the low maintenance: low energy consumption and no filters to clean."
By Dr C Corte Real, From Holland 20/05/2006"As a doctor I strongly recommend the use of Airfree to all patients suffering from respiratory allergy or asthma."
FD From Austin, Texas 27/04/2011Dear Airfree:
I purchased an Air Free because the mold counts are always high in my city and I am sensitive to them. I take a number of prescription and (former prescrption - now generic) medications on a daily basis year-round. Using Air Free has produced a major reduction in my symptons. There is a major improvement in my comfort and I am very, very happy with the Air Free and the relief it provides.
Freeair From Conneticut 02/09/2010No Smell
"I bought the P1000 about 3 years ago, in 2007, for my girlfriend who suffers from allergies and asthma, I also suffer from asthma. After a few weeks of use the effect was amazing, with the door shut all the time the room was a safe haven with no reactions at all and no restricted breathing. After extended use you can "smell" the clean air, it really destroys odors quite efficiently.
I highly recommend this product to any allergy or asthma suffers, it truly helps."
Gazza From Rhode Island 12/02/2008"I live in New England which is notorious for damp moldy basements especially during the summer. I have had two AirFree air sterilizers in my basement for the last two years and they really have prevented mold from growing. I recommend using them with a good dehumidifier in a humid basement - I have the Danby dehumidifier which I also got at AllergyBuyersClub.com. The best thing is that the Airfrees are maintenance free - just plug them in and forget about it."
RN Linden, NJ 06/05/2006Dear Airfree:
I just purchased 3 more of your airfare products. Last month I bought one unit to see how it worked. My allergies are a lot better since I purchased your unit. I have no more itchy, burning watery eyes, and no more runny nose. I just wish I could take it outside with me when I go out. Your unit is the only unit that has made my allergies symptoms a lot better, after trying so many other products that never helped.
Thank you so much for a wonderful product.

BREATH OF FRESH AIR
from West Branch, Michigan
J J, C.P.A. From Miami, USA 01/05/2008I live in a one-bedroom condo in an older building on Miami Beach, with my girlfriend. Since moving there we have always experienced a large amount of dust and other particles circulating around the condo.
We currently have the Air Free in our living-room where our 10 Week old English Bulldog puppy hangs out in. Let me tell you the Air Free has made a huge difference. No smell and no more dust. The best part about the Air Free is that its completely silent.
We are definitely interested in getting another one to put in our bedroom. Please forward me some more information as to how we can possibly get another one.
Thanks again and I hope all is well.

Jenna B. From Illinois 02/26/2009"My house has mold problems. Hopefully, they have been dealt with (again!) but I've had severe dizziness and sinus problems for 5 months which even antibiotics wouldn't stop. I have tried many brands of air cleaners/sterilizers, none of which alleviated my symptoms. 2 Germ Guardians seemed to help but not enough and I don't like their fan noise. I bought the Onix 3000 for my bedroom, expecting to wait a week for relief. Relief started within hours. By morning, my sinus trouble had eased (without meds) and my dizziness was almost gone. By day 3, all symptoms were gone as long as I stayed mostly in my room. Since this worked so quickly, I ordered 2 Onix 1000 units, planning to place them in bedrooms and move the Onix 3000 to a larger living area. I received them yesterday but since I have only been symptom-free for just over 1 week, I hesitate to make the change. I plugged the smaller units in other areas, will see how well they work, then decide which size units to buy for my basement. Every winter I have struggled with sinus trouble and its many side effects. It is wonderful to wake up refreshed and ready to greet the day instead of hoping to be able to drag through it in a drug-induced stupor. Thanks, Onix!"
L.G. From England 11/04/2009"As a longstanding allergy sufferer from dustmites, hay fever and many other things I think the product is fantastic. I have it plugged in my bedroom and whenever I am suffering I can go in that room and within about 20 minutes I am 100% better, even with the window open".
Jose Vegar From Queens, New York 01/01/2012Hello! it is me again.since I got two units before and they worked so well.I decided to get two of the ONIX 3000 for my mother.thank you very much for you fine units.since I got four units(two platinum and two onix.do I get an unit for my kitchen "for free".just joking guys.maybe I will get one for my kitchen too").well thanks again.and I will strongly recommend your units NO DOUT!
Kevin Kelly From Houmas House 03/18/2005Kevin Kelly , the owner of Houmas House (Louisiana) www.houmashouse.com a mansion worth visiting, kindly provided below testimony to encourage other pet owners to benefit from the marvellous action of Airfree.
I purchased 8 Airfree units and placed them in Big House of Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. They were placed in each of the 4 main rooms on the first floor and one in each of the bedrooms on the second floor of the Mansion.
I placed them there, because my dogs Princess Grace and King Sam were having odors because of swimming in the ponds. When you walked in the Mansion, you could smell dog hair odor. After placing the Airfree in the rooms, the odors disappeared. We actually have guests who come to Houmas House and say that they are surprised that an old house like this, has no odor. Some have actually said that they find it hard to believe that dogs live in the house, because of the lack of odors. I suggest that they buy the Airfree,
The Houmas House Mansion was built in 1805, is known as the Sugar Palace, and is the Crown Jewel of the Great River Road, Our collection of antiques and artwork is valued in excess of $6,000,000 and is protected from mold damage and odors by the Airfree.
It is hard to believe that a small silent machine can make such a difference in living in an historic residence.
Klliopatra From San Francisco, CA 02/01/2011Great product. We have 14' ceilings, so it's not as efficient as it could be, but it does work. It just takes longer. For normal ceilings, it probably works perfectly.
Mickey From PA, USA 12/03/2006allergy medicine daily just so I could spend time with her.
I now have 2 units for over 2 months, and my problems are gone! A P2000 in the living room and a P1000 in the bedroom have solved everything. No more allergy medication, no more suffering, and I can even playh with the fuzz ball a little bit.
Mrs Alice Ellis-Smith - Doctor From Netherlands 07/12/2006My asthma has affected my quality of life considerably in the last few years: every few days my chest would be "on fire", my throat sore and raw, my mouth dry... Having given up my inhaler, I've tried Chinese medicine, therapeutic massage, attempted Buteyko breathing, modified my diet, etc. Then I was given an Airfree - surely such a small gadget would have little impact I thought. A week of running it in my bedroom, I began to feel better and wake up with a clearer chest and no sore throat! It's now been a month and I have not an asthma attack at all. What can I say except that it works - buy it, buy one for every room!
LA3 2DE From Heysham, Lancashire UK 11/06/2007Fantastic! We purchased a P80 air purifier 3 weeks ago for my 4 year old daughter's bedroom. She suffers with atopic eczema and has sleepless nights, particularly during these summer months. Ever since the purifier arrived she hasn't woken itching or scratching once; even when it has been warm. The difference is amazing! My daughter came in hot and itchy from Nursery the other day and within half an hour of being in her bedroom with her purifier, her skin had totally calmed down and her scratching had ceased - without any creams or medications!! Brilliant!!! address: Heysham, Lancashire UK
M. and G. Rankin From San Diego, California 07/06/2011Our daughter has asthma, caused by a dust mite allergy. From the age of 1 year she has been treating her asthma with a cortisone inhaler and antihistamines. At one point, we had to spend a few weeks in a clinic for respiratory treatment, but still she had a lot of problems, like waking up early in the morning because she had to cough or she couldn't breath properly etc. She often had bronchitis, therefore couldn't go to school, doctor visits kept us very busy and she had to go through all kind of tests... Just over half a year ago we got an Airfree Platinum 2000 for her room and since then she has not been to the doctor any more, hardly needs any medication and hasn't missed school any more. Not to mention how much better she is feeling.
And that because of just one air purifier. We bought more in the mean time, because it is a good feeling to know that with this we can also prevent other family members from developing respiratory problems.
The Airfree is definitely the most valuable contributor to health improvement that we ever bought. Thanks!

Norway From Holland 05/11/2006Hi, Airfree,
Yes, I can believe it. My own story is a great reference for the product. We have an old summer cabin in Norway, just next to a huge pine forest mountain, and in front of a fjord. Our yard is filled with as much moss as grass. The cabin was built with inexpensive materials in 1951, but has a solid foundation. I have been very sick inside for some years, and had to stop going there. This caused a huge problem for our family, as it is the location where every summer is supposed to be spent. I could only go once the pollen season was over and if the weather got warm enough to leave all windows open all the time.
I also had allergy tests in the meantime, and was put on medicines I could not tolerate. I am in great shape with low blood pressure, and the allergy meds and inhaler made me too sleepy and foggy-brained to work or think straight. The tests showed I was allergic to mice, molds, and pine. Our cabin is surrounded by mice, molds and pine.
The Airfree we got (the small one) was plugged in just one day when I noticed a difference. Two weeks later, we could close every window completely. I was breathing perfectly from about day 2-3. We could even leave it on with all the windows open in the summer, and the machine was never truely affected. I simply kept the place dusted and vacuumed, as usual, and the machine had a place of prominence in the central living room-dining room combination. This past Fall, a time when I could never stay at the cabin before, we spent every weekend there, even when windows had to be closed completely on cold days. In fact, this machine completely changed my indoor health within two weeks, and never quit working, as the weather got worse - colder and more rainy outdoors. This means we do not need to tear down the old cabin and re-build a new one of the very same size on its place (the only Norwegian -legal solution). This means you saved our cabin. . . for us to use, as it was meant to be! It is now a healthy cabin, and I'm a healthy person in it! It's hard to tell you how much this means to us, as a couple and as a family.
I want to buy another one, so we can leave one plugged in at the cabin in the winter-time, to reduce moisture in the air, and cancel the effect of the sneaky mice that make their way into the corner cupboards. As for now, I have brought it to our home, second floor, where the bedroom is. We will use this winter at night it to keep the smoke down. Norwegians sleep with open windows. In winter, neighbors are always having fires in their fireplaces in the evening. The air can be quite smokey, and I am allergic to all particle matter in the air, it seems.
So, let's plan to get another Airfree, but perhaps in January when we can afford to consider it. I thought I would call the Norway contact then, and ask for a second one to be sent.
Best of luck with this great great product, and let me know if you want to use me as a reference.
Breathing Easier From Florida, US 06/23/2011I have had this purifier in use for about 2 weeks and I already feel as though I am breathing easier while I am in my classroom. Because it is so quiet it does not interfer with my teaching. I love it!
By A.G From GA 7/8/2010I was skeptical at first
I was skeptical at first but was won over by this product. I originally bought the air purifier to help our family's allergies and sinus problems. It was hard to believe that a product that has no filters, nothing to clean or wash off, could actually work. My brother-in-law who has a severe allergy to dogs has never been able to spend more than an hour or two at our house. Since we got our air purifier, he has been able to spend several hours at our house without any symptoms or discomfort. I'm a believer!
By E. May From London 04/20/2010"Had my P125 for 2 years, used constantly without trouble. Cleans the air in the whole of my 1 bed flat, the thing I noticed first is the difference in smell of my flat when arriving home, days before the p125 my flat smelt of my pet, cooking and a hard to put a name to it but it just smelt, now it smells of nothing. I no longer have itchy eyes or coughs, which used to annoy me as I had no trouble with this during my day at work." Found out this was down to a mould growth. Fully recommended, even though the price is high
By Heather B From Calumet City, IL 2/19/2010I love it! The air in my home seems so much crisper and cleaner when I walk in the door.
By Ellen Waczak From Calumet City, IL 2/19/2010Makes a big difference in our infant's room in regards to the quality of the air. It's great for her room because it makes no noise and cleans the air in the room.
By Eric Kuzel From Hibbing, MN 2/19/2010I assist at a daycare facility and we purchased 3 of these units for the classroom. We were amazed at the difference they made just within a few days. Also, the kids we watch seemed to have fewer colds this year than in the past. The Airfree purifiers had to have helped some with that. We're impressed so far.
By Linda Kurniawan From Australia 02/05/2012I’m a current user and your product was a lifesaver as we had a cat allergy problem. When I purchased it I had to buy from US ebay as I cannot find a local dealer in Australia. I’m interested in becoming a dealer and retailer here, mostly operating through an online shop and ebay. The brand is quite unknown here but I believe there is a market for it as there is a growing number of allergy issues in Australia, and the low energy consumption and low maintenance cost will appeal to this market very well. Please let me know if this is possible and if there are any units compatible with Australian standard mains power supply. Kind regards,Back
By MG From Bethlehem, PA-USA 7/22/2010Highly recommended
this product is recommended by doctors in Brazil ,and I asked the doctor here in USA because our allergies from pollen , mold and dust is so bad each year , so I bought this one here and it`s working wonderfull in our room, we ( my husband and I)are sleeping better because we are breathing better,I couldn`t think about the spring and pollen season, but now I`m waiting for ... .[...]So what you are waiting for ..., buy yours and breath and live better...
By Patricia Patterson-Swanson From Tucson, AZ 2/21/2010I've had the Onix 3000 for 4 months now and was diagnosed 4 months ago with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma and I'm headed next week for my last chemo treatment...I believe the air purifier was one of the contributing factors in early healing treatment...My course of chemo treatments was 8 chemo sessions...My Dr. confirmed recently that I was cancer free and would only need 6 sessions...Again I believe one of the contributing factors was the Onix 3000...Thank you Airfree for inventing this great air purifier...I also have the Austin Healthmate Jr working in combination with my Onix 3000...By the way I need a air filter for my Austin Healthmate...It's time... Thank you again for all your help and suggestions... Patricia Patterson-Swanson...PS My husband has been diagnosed with COPD and this Austin has keep the air purified without him having a seizure in 2008, 2009...
Danielle Barone From BellaOnline's Family Health EditorThe following review is about the AirFree air purifier. I found it to work very well, and I would like to share this information with you. I hope you will find it helpful. Please keep in mind that Bella has no endorsement with the AirFree company. Product reviews on our site are written with the intention of listing good products, that can be helpful to our readers.
After researching many air purifiers, I recently found the AirFree air purifier/air sterilizer on amazon.com. I was hesitant to pay the $199 for the machine, but I decided to order after I considered the always fair and generous return policy of amazon.com. I figured if the air purifier did not work, I could always just send it back. In fact, I assumed I would have to send it back.
Upon receiving the air purifier I was surprised at how small it was, around 12 inches high and about 10 inches wide. My first thoughts were that there was no way this air purifier could work, but I was very wrong.
Within the first few minutes of use I noticed a clean, warm stream of air that was comforting. The AirFree is designed with an incineration chamber inside that heats to 400 degrees to clean the air that passes through it. The outside of the machine remains cool to the touch, with the exception of a slight warm stream that rises out of the top of the air purifier. The machine is also designed for safety, and encloses the heating unit securely so that children, pets and curious adults cannot touch the heated area.
The AirFree air purifier does not produce ozone, and has no expensive filters to change. As far as im concerned, these are two important factors for a good air purifier.
This air purifier works well to clean the air. I also found that AirFree removed second hand tobacco smoke and odor from the air in my home. This is the only product I have found so far that cleans the air without a filter or ozone. I wish that more companies would invent air purification methods that do not require filters or ozone.
The product comes with a warantee, and also an instruction booklet that lists some independent testing of the AirFree done by impressive sources such as SGS Natec Institute in Germany, and the University Compluterise de Madrid/Mircobiological Laboratory in Spain. These agencies tested the Airfree and found it reduced 80-90% of fungus, bacteria, viruses, mold and ozone from the air.
The instructions tell to leave the air purifier on 24 hours a day for optimum air cleaning. Personally, I have been nervous about leaving the unit on for that long as the company lists no information regarding its safe use for long periods of time. I use it for a few hours at a time, and then give it a rest. That feels safest and works well for me.
If you decide to give the AirFree air purifier a try, please follow the directions for use carefully. Please note that this article is a review of a product based on personal experience.

Diane C. From Ohio 12/10/2008"My son said he could tell a difference in the air in just a few hours. This means a lot, my mother, whom I am now caring for, is 89. She has an illiostomy bag, is catherderized and bedfast. We brought her home from hospice care. It means a lot to know the air in her room is as clean as possible, for visiting great grand children and for her and me."
JT From Detroit 04/18/2009"Bought one about months ago. Over the past winter it was bitterly cold so my steam heat was on constantly. Warm humid air without any fresh air probably promoted the growth of allergens. these triggered my asthma terribly. I was using inhalers 6 times a day. At night I constantly woke up and had fitful sleep. Since getting the airfree, i feel refreshed in the morning. Barely use my inhaler. The air smells cleaner. I would totally recommend this to any asthma allergy sufferers out there. Only negative is that one of the leds lights has gone out but i don't think it affects the performance at all."
By J. Graves From Milton Keynes, UK 10/17/2009"We got this (P125 Platinum) because we live in a basement flat in central london and there was always so much dust in the air, it was making us cough and sneeze. We've had it a couple of years now, and we definitely seem to be less allergic and the flat seems much less dusty. Looks pretty cool and is small ish so stays out of the way."
By Jim From England 06/10/2008"Fantastic product. Has made a real difference at night time. I suffer badly from hayfever and used to wake up every morning with sore and clammy eyes. No problems now I use this Air Purifier."
By Staying Fit From Atlanta, GA 09/08/2007We Are In Love
This Little air purifier rocks. We've used it for a couple of Weeks and you can't believe the big difference. My husband and I Have hay fever. But we're not miserable anymore. Our sneezing and runny noses are gone. Thank you so much for the huge gift you've given us. We can sleep without tossing and turning.
Casey From Dana Point, CA 03/01/2011No noise is a big plus. Blue light is a bit annoying at the beginning, but later, found to be adjustable, which is good. The room smells much more natural than before, even in one day of use.
Cassiopeia From Boston, MA 03/06/2010"I get sick every winter from Dec-March--same cough that keeps me up all night, post nasal drip, etc. My doctor, when I told her of this pattern, had me tested for winter allergies and it turns out I"m allergic to virtually any allergen that hangs out in the winter, most of all mold and dust. When I declined allergy shots, she suggested an air sterilizer so I bought one of these. This is the first winter in over 15 years I haven't gotten sick. No post nasal drip. No coughs. No illnesses period. I can only assume the sterilizer is the cause of this miracle as I changed nothing else in my home or routine. It's so amazing not to have to be miserable for 3-4 months straight this winter (and I'm sure my boyfriend is happy I'm not coughing all night long). It's totally silent, completely maintenance free and the little blue light makes a nice night light. The only drawback is when guests ask me what's up with R2D2 in the bathroom but it's a small price to pay."
Coolcat From BC, Canada 3/14/2008Works great. I bought three.
I used to have coughing fits to the degree I would throw-up. Now I never cough and another benifit that I noticed is that I am sleeping 100% better. I used to toss and turn all night, but now I sleep like a log.
Grateful From Arlington, VA 03/23/2009"After my professional mold remediator failed four times, this machine successfully got rid of the mold in my house, making it safe for me to live there. I bought 4 because each machine only covers a room. It's small, quiet, relatively inexpensive, and it works!"
Heather Collins From London, UK 01/14/2010Airfree is a company that makes air purifiers that are maintenance free, worry free, and filter free.
That might sound too good to be true, but it's not.
My daughter suffers from indoor allergies such as dust and dust mites, as well as food allergies. Her doctor told us she really needed to have an air purifier, a really good one.
I wasn't sure how we were going to do that, since really good air purifiers come with a really high price tag.
I did my research and I found that the Airfree air purifiers reduce mold, dust mite allergens, pollens, pet danders, bacteria, viruses, among other indoor pollutants.
Someone told me that I should ask the company and see if they would donate one for me to try for Sophie. I decided to ask. And they said yes. However, they said that the retailers are the ones that donate products, but they were willing to make a special exception.
And I am very thankful that they did.
After about 4-8 weeks, we began to notice a difference. Her symptoms have improved. I would highly recommend this. It makes no noise, and it has a nice blue light (that you can dim).
How does it work?
Airfree uses heat instead of UV light or ozone. Airflow is achieved through air convection generated by their patented Thermodynamic Sterilizing System that sterilizes the air at high temperatures.
Check out their web site for more information. Be sure to click on the Strawberry test.
I want to give a big thanks to Airfree. Thank you for your kindness!
Hillary From San Francisco, CA 05/02/2011It's not too good to be true; it's a great, powerful, silent, effective air purifier that uses thermodynamic technology to fry dust, mold, dander, and all sorts of odors and pollutants. You'll never need to buy/replace a filter or turn down the noise; just enjoy fresh, clean air in any medium-sized room.
Jeff Bagnall From Hudson, NY 10/15/2008After several years of worsening pain, I made the decision to have my hips replaced. This required two separate operations and two separate hospitalizations.
My surgeon indicated the greatest danger was not the surgery, but the risk of infection while recuperating in the hospital. Accordingly, I discussed the use of an Airfree unit with him.
The result was that on both occasions, I took an Airfree machine with me to the hospital and came through without so much as a hiccup.
I am confident that the use of this machine in my hospital room contributed to my recovery.
Thank you for making this unit available.
Johnny P From Providence Area RI 12/11/2008"We moved into a new house and the builder recommended that we get a dehumidifier for the basement to protect ourselves against mold- and our neighbors were complaining bitterly that their stuff was getting covered with mold.
Since Dehumidifiers can cost a bit to run I put 2 Airfrees into the basement at the recommendation of a friend who had shopped with AllergyBuyersClub.com. The Airfrees did the trick- no mold has grown and I only run a dehumidifier in the height of the summer just to be on the safe side."
Jose Vegar From Queens, New York 11/20/2011HI! I got two units "platinum 2000.let me tell You.if You are looking for a REAL "air sanitizer" You do not have to look anywhere else.AIRFREE is here to help all those people looking for a better indoor air.and the best way to get this priceless pure air is getting an "AIRFREE" unit. I strongly recommend them.remember the MOST IMPORTANT thing that we have is our health.so take care of it!
thank you again AIRFREE.for your help keeping our indoor air pure.
Dr. Carlos Corte Real - Doctor, Netherlands From Holland 07/21/2005Dear Airfree,
It is my pleasure that you add my testemony to your web site. As a doctor I' ve seen many patients suffering from asthma and respiratory allergy. It's frustrating what we doctors can do because the majority of medicines, inalators and a vaccine that is beeing developed are doing very little effect in terms of releiving the symptoms. The vaccine which I tried myself is far to be effecient.
It is conforting to know that me as a patient of severe allergy to the dust ,as well as other patients we can now simply breath a clean air that increases our energy, our good humor and ability to work. Airfre is great tecology and I know more cases of people which asthma had decrease just because cleaning their rooms with Airfree. As a doctor I strongly reccommend the use of Airfree to all patients suffering from respiratory allergy or asthma.
Dr.C.Corte Real, MD,arts
Dr. Diana Samways MD, Physician specialising in Nutrition, Allergy, and Environmental Medicine in Haslemere From Surrey, England 11/06/2007Since my use of the Airfree Air Purifier, mold count in our house greatly decreased. Hence, my energy level and stamina increased. I wholeheartedly recommend that you use this excellent Purifier!
