The proper use of an ozone generator depends in part on the amount of output of the unit. Some units emit only a small amount of ozone, so it is only a small factor in the overall air mixture in the room or home. These fall into the area of an air treatment/purification system.

The growing interest in ozone for restoration and remediation services is grounding in good science. Ozone is a non-toxic tool that can treat a variety of restoration problems. Ozone is used for the following reasons:
Anyone who knows about electronics will agree that "Heat is the Enemy of Electrical Systems." Well, one of the reasons that ozone generators break down is the buildup of heat. The transformers and ozone plates in an ozone generator can produce a lot of heat. This causes breakdowns much faster than they should happen. Ozone is also known to "Age Components".
First things first. Ignore 90% of what you see on the Internet, except for our site ... of course. There are so many claims by every ozone generator manufacturer that you will like buy a unit out of desperation only find out that it wasn't as good as represented.
It is just nearly impossible to find honest information, so let's use elimination as the way to find a good ozone generator.
As ozone becomes better known as an environmentally-friendly way to remove odors, kill mold, and sanitize an area; you are going to see a lot more competition for this market. Professional Ozone is not looking for an amateur who buys into the hype of Internet hucksters. A few of the common mistake are as shown below:
