Question from JP
My doctor prescribed an Austin Air for my MCS in 2005. It emitted a yeast-like smell, but I thought it was normal. Then, I purchased a smaller Austin Air and the air was mega fresh. I could tell instantly when I shut it off for a few hours and then turned it back on. So, I ordered another one, plus a filter for my original unit. Every single one them are now emitting a yeast-like smell. So, I purchased a Dyson air purifier and it worked like a charm, so I purchased another one. Every Dyson filter I have order in the past two years emit the same yeast-like smell. Has anyone ever complained about yeast-like smells? I’m wondering if that means the filters are old and have been sitting on the shelf for too long? I recently ordered an EnviroKlenz purifier and it emitted a strong odor and now it seems to be fine. I put it in my garage because I have a piece of new furniture that is off gassing, and the purifier is not helping. I’ve spent thousands of dollars and I’m losing hope. 🙁 Any suggestions or ideas?
Readers, has anyone else had this experience? Any suggestions?
