    This year, I plan to start buying ionizers until I have every room in my house covered. I don't know anything about them. Does anyone on here? Can you make a recommendation? What size do you need for a particular room size? Or will there have to be more than one per room. My living area upstairs is 'open concept', bedrooms are large, and downstairs I have a good size 'office.' I may get one to take to work for my office as well. So it would have to be fairly quiet.

    What say you, oh experts on pretty much everything?

    The science behind Ionizers and AGW is closely related. :cool:

    I have found one on Amazon that ionizes and produces ozone. Ozone is supposed to kill mold. I don't have a real dampness problem, but I do notice some mold occasionally in my basement. Am thinking I might give that one a whirl,.

    I do know that ionizers work because they use them in a hotel I used when I was traveling to remove cigarette smoke. Occasionally they would have to let someone who smoked use their non smoking rooms. And they cleaned the rooms up with the ionizer.

    A couple of years ago, I worked in a building that had black mold. A man I know who has a degree in a relevant field recommended the use of ozone. Of course, the workplace never did. And I mainly want to use it in my basement.

    The one I found on Amazon gets rave reviews.

    The more I read, the more it sounds like the ozone thing may not be altogether safe. So I will look at just an ionizer. That will probably do about what I want.
