I was looking into purchasing an ionizer or ozone generator to try to offset the long winter lockdown of the house. Read all the pros out there on how beneficial they are, but then I came across a study done by the EPA, basically stating that ozone generators do little to clean the environment at the low doses these home units emit, but these low doses can still become concentrated enough to cause a myriad of health problems. The only difference, as explained to me, between an ionizer and a ozone generator, is that an ionizer puts out less ozone, anywhere from 50 -100 times less. What is your take on these products?

I believe the proper way to use such products is to find a time when you will be out of the house for a few hours/days/weeks, leave the ozone generator(s) on and lock up. The idea would be to kill mold, fungus, bacteria, etc. Then when you return, immediately turn off the generator(s), open all doors and window, and fully air out the house.
