Y'know, I don't know about the ionizers, but they have said too that the
HEPA purifiers are not doing anything really but I find that hard to believe
as when I changed my carbon filters the other day, you would not BELIEVE the
amount of dust on them that would have been floating in the air. I think
they must do something. Also, Grant, cat with allergies, likes sleeping in
that area of the room, which he didn't before. Anecdotal, yes, but still
gives pause to wonder.
