I just purchased one what color do you start off with or does it matter

Asked by Kat October 24, 2020

Answer

It really does not matter what you start off with, it depends on what you want to do, read the book on the color indicators and it will explain what each one does, hope that this helps you.

This may be stupid question. Can I place it on a floor in my office?

Answers

Yes - you can place it on the floor, but if you put it up a bit higher it will be more effective. It's really quite small, so I put mine on a nightstand.

Does this need replacement filters?

Asked by Kim July 12, 2020

The pureAir 500 has a small HEPA filter that should be replaced annually for best results. The unit comes with one replacement filter and additional filters may be purchased through GreenTech Environmental retailers or online at www.greentechenv.com. The smaller pureAir 50 does not have replacement filters.

Hi Rita. Thanks for your question. We are happy to help. pureAir 500 has a switch to turn the light off for your convenience. (Our first units did not, but our current ones do.) The internal light can be turned ON/OFF by pressing the touch-sensitive Light Button on the top panel. The light will activate for 3 seconds when changing Modes with the light OFF to notify you of which mode is active.

It may help lesson the smell, but I don't think it will take it away completely. Have you taken off the back? Sometimes liquids like blood can seep into the back and bottom (outside the interior part) and continue to smell thru the vents. My family owned a rental appliance store and we'd see this happen often. You might have to steam clean it inside and out.

This air purifier clumps particulates in the air and removes pollen, dust etc and also creates Activated Oxygen (O3), which helps rid bacteria, viruses and mold. I do not see anything about ozone in the instruction manual.

Customer review from greentechenv.com logo
I've had this purifier for weeks now and I can already tell a huge difference in my allergy and sinus issues. No more musty smell. This is an excellent purifier for those who are affected by cat dander, mold and other problems associated with breathing difficulties. We also have hardwood floors so the dust, dander, and pet hair gets kicked up very easily. I have checked out this unit very throughly and it is engineered quite well. If you are in a situation where you need a small compact air purifier, I would advise you to take a hard look at this unit. I am quite pleased with mine. This is a nicely made product. It's easy to get it going. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This air purifier works great and is quiet. I have it in my study where I use my computer and read. My two dogs usually stay in the room with me when I am in there so there is smoke and pet dander always in the room. This filter is definitely cleaning the air in the study. I can notice the change in the smell and feel of the room. I am definitely glad I got this purifier. I like that it also came with a spare filter.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The Pure Air 500 is an indoor air purifier designed to filter out contaminants and allergens in an individual room. The Pure Air 500 has 3 modes of use, the first mode (green light) is where it removes smoke, dander and allergens from the air. The second mode (blue light) destroys odors, bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew in the air and on surfaces. The third mode (red light) which they call the "away mode" is where it supposed to blast the air and surfaces with high powered purification to remove odors and pathogens. It reverts to the previous mode after 30 minutes automatically and during the time it is in that mode, people and pets should stay out of the space while the away mode is being used. This unit comes with an extra air filter that you replace yearly under normal conditions. Overall, this product is something I have been using and will continue using as it really does work as intended. The room smells fresh and it’s easy to take it anywhere in the house that may need to be freshened up. The unit takes very little power, about 10 watts, and the effective area it covers is about 850 square feet. The air purifier stands about 9 inches tall and about 6 inches in diameter.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
PureAir 500 Air Purifier, small but mighty! I received the Green Tech PureAir air purifier through the Home Depot Seeds program in exchange for a fair review of the product. I received the PureAir within one week of ordering and it was packaged well in a box with styrofoam inserts and it was received in perfect condition.Included in the box was the Air purifier, power adapter and an extra filter, which is always appreciated so when you clean one filter you can replace it with the second one. There is basically no assembly required, one filter is already installed in the unit so all you have to do is plug the power adapter in to the purifier and plug it in and it is ready to go. The Green Tech PureAir is a fairly small unit, with dimensions of 9 inches high by 6.25 inches wide, and it can easily fit on a desk, in a bathroom or bedside table. The purifier was smaller than I had imagined and I was afraid it wouldn’t be very effective but after running it for just a few hours the room smelled very fresh and clean, the smell was very similar to fresh laundry that was hung out on a clothes line all day ( I know many people may not know that scent but it line dried clothes always smell fresh and clean).The unit is very low energy, 10 W which is much less than an average light bulb so you don’t have to worry that it will have an impact on your electric bill if you run it days at a time . When running it does emit a low white noise, much quieter than a small fan. I am a light sleeper and it did not keep me awake or interrupt my sleep. This air purifier has 3 modes, each indicated by a certain light color. The IONIZATION mode or GREEN light is used to clump particulates in the air and remove such things as smoke, pollen and pet dander. I don’t smoke or have a pet so I am hoping it will be effective removing allergens such as dust. The PURIFICATION mode or BLUE mode creates Activated Oxygen (O3) and is supposed to destroy bacteria, viruses and mold and the last mode is AWAY MODE or the RED light which is a combination of both IONIZATION and PURIFICATION. This mode runs for 30 minutes and then reverts back to the previous mode. The light can be inactivated which I would recommend while sleeping (see pictures). It is recommended that the purifier be placed on a hard surface so the filter, which is on the bottom of the unit, is not blocked. They also recommend cleaning the filter once a month with a vacuum or compressed air (although most people probably don't have an air compressor) . I would think a hair dryer would work but then again you would be blowing all the particulate back into the air if cleaning it indoors. As mentioned an extra filter is included in the box but they also can be ordered through Green Tech. There is a 1 yr warranty on this particular unit and it retails for approximately $150 to $200. This is a small but effective air purifier and I would highly recommend this unit for allergy sufferers and anyone that has sensitivity to molds and dust. I was not able to test its effectiveness against smoke but the manufacturer states it is effective removing smoke and odors. The only negative feature of this product is the power adapter cord is very short and may not reach some electrical outlets..

The GreenTech Environmental air purifier arrived completely assembled. It even already had a filter in it. It comes with an extra filter too.All I had to do was to plug the power adapter into the wall outlet and then plug the other end into the power port of the unit.It is small enough to be put on a table, which is where I placed it. Right now I have it in our bedroom, and it is so quiet that you can barely hear it,so it does not disturb your sleep. It has three modes: ionization mode(green light) , purification mode(blue light) , and away mode(red light) The instruction booklet clearly explains the purpose of each setting. The instructions say to clean the unit at least once a month, and the process is simple and clearly explained.The filter should be replaced once a year.I have used the unit for approximately a week now and I can tell that it is helping the air quality because of the fresh smell in the room. I have a plug in version of this device and it works well also.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Great design, quiet operation, low power consumption, good price and it works! I am very allergic to dust and living in a dry environment produces a lot of dust. I am using a Holmes Model HAP 240 machine in the bedroom (I've had it for years!), so I will compare this unit with that one. I put this unit in my office because it is much quieter than the Holmes. The size is perfect for the top of my roll-top desk and I run it during the day, when I'm in and out of my office. The shape is attractive and if you like the colors that tell you what mode your unit is in, you won't be disappointed by some red LED. I want the ionization and purification mode, so I would see an attractive blue light if I desired it but I turn the light out, since I'm not interested in looking at it. The unit only uses 10 W of power as opposed to the Holmes, which uses 40, 80 or 120 W, depending on which of the 3 speeds (H, M, L) you're using. My office air is much fresher and I'm seeing a reduction in the amount of dust that accumulates. It doesn't have a HEPA filter, like the Holmes does, but with the lower fan speed, I wouldn't expect it to eliminate everything. This unit is a good choice for rooms with an area up to 850 sq. ft. and it has a 1 year warranty. You also get a replacement filter and the manufacturer recommends replacement annually. They recommend that monthly, you remove the filter and blow it out with compressed air, which is very easy to do. I have one question for the manufacturer - if they read this review: Is there a recommended maximum run time for this unit? There is nothing in the Owner's Manual of the specification sheet that I could find. I highly recommend this unit because of the purchase price, cost to operate and overall performance.
