        Answer This Question

        A:  It helps but not like a carbon filter would.

        by|Mar 20, 2019

          A:  Yes, the with the help of the UV light the unit will help to reduce or eliminate odors. It is not capable of noting good or bad odors so it will help to reduce any kind of odor.

            A:  I never used it for that but I am sure it will help. I bought mine to eliminate skunk odor. My dogs were skunked and I tried getting the smell out of my house for weeks. This air tower helped out a lot. Very good.

            by|May 5, 2023

              A:  possibly, depending on how bad they are

                                A:  Yes. I changed it for the first time about 6 months after I purchased the unit. It is very easy to install - just open the back, remove the old cartridge, and put in the new one. After the unit is turned on after replacing the cartridge, the warning beep will turn off after a few moments.

                                      A:  From the manual: "The Air Cleaner will beep for 30 seconds and the HEPA reset light will flash continuously indicating that is is time to replace your filter. Replace the filter according to directions then insert pen tip into HEPA Reset area on control panel to restart the system. Depending on usage, filter will last approximately 6 months."

                                                                                    A:  Yes, it works great for odors. I used it in a room about 350 sq. ft. with a vaulted ceiling that also has a loft connected and it works great.

Sitting on Kitchen pass through adjoining into Den, pointed at Breakfast area. We leave it on Medium. Less noticeable Noise. We hear it walking by but it's not annoying. Sounds like a Fan on a Desktop PC from 3 feet away. Hope that helps!
