A single unit goes for $152.49 after coupon on Amazon:

These are generally well reviewed, I have the smaller 22" AC4825 myself.


*update* - Thanks rvs007!
For the energy rebate, add item 1377804 to the cart before you check out to get the additional $50 (taken after tax), bringing the total to $177.11 after tax (or $156.74 before tax).
Also use promo code AERO3 for 3x Aeroplan miles.

Just what I was looking for. Can someone vouch for this? I heard the UV-C light creates ozone which is a nono but is it in harmful quantity?

Can you potentially return one and keep one?

If it was dangerous and there is research then they wouldnt be selling them

I have one of these, but the larger model.

I can vouch for it, it reduces the level of airborne particulates that we often take for granted. A light sound in the background also helps with sleeping.

It takes care of pet hair & dander, airborne fabric particulates for example from your sheets or clothes, and allergens (...you want the UV for this).

You can also get 2 or 3 additional cycles out of the filter by taking it out and using a lint roller to clean it.

I'm not sure if you're serious but here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone

Scroll on down to health effects
I don’t know how well I can trust the wiki page. To start off, there is no citation for he claim that “ozone is found in harmful quantities in urban areas.” Next, there is a line claiming the innate immune system is cellular... when inmate immunity is humoral, not cellular. I didn’t check past that.

Yes. This is how I interpreted it:

‘Since it’s a two pack, can I buy it and return one and get a full refund’.

Why would Costco refund half? If you buy something with ‘x’ items in the box then the same amount must be returned. Simple.

Seems like a very good buy. I'll try it out and costco return policy is a great backup.

I'm sure people here that want only one can arrange a group buy.

As absurd as it may sound, if it isn't bundled as one SKU, but rather as a discount on two of the same SKU, retailers like Home Depot will prorate the discount on the receipt, allowing you to return one of them, or the "bonus" items.

They sell round up which isn’t safe but they sell them. That logic doesn’t make sense. If there’s money to be made a company will sell it.

Sure i agree they will sell. But theres no research on the ozone dangers from air purifiers. I tried googling and no articles came up from reputable sources.
