Update on Surround Air XJ-3800 Intelli-Pro Air Purifier

Yesterday morning, I heard a strange click behind me. Scanning the room behind me, I eventually saw that there was a flashing red light on my Surround Air XJ-3800. Closer inspection showed it was for "Clean Metal Grid", not sure what I would do if it had been for "Replace Filter" (since its too soon, and I wasn't planning to buy one until close to its first anniversary).

Not realizing that the Surround Air was going to need special maintenance, more complicated than my other (2) EnviroSense Air Purifiers. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to do for this 'message'.

Locating the manual, I found there was quite a procedure to extracting the metal grid and cleaning it and the wires. And, then putting it back and doing a reset.

Had I known, I probably wouldn't have gotten this unit and stuck to either getting another EnviroSense or like device. Also the lack of a remote on this unit is something I miss, especially for its location in my living room.

If only the Multi-Tech S5000 Air Purifier were available then....perhaps this Surround Air model would've been more desirable. Though its not available through Amazon Prime....OTOH, the Multi-Tech A4000 Air Purifier is. And, it is cheaper than the XJ-3800...and seems to be more along in the like EnviroSense classification.

But, no plans to add additional Air Purifiers to my condo....any time soon. Plus I'd still be stuck with this one somewhere....

Surround Air XJ-3800 Intelli-Pro Air Purifier

Link: http://www.surroundair.com/intellipro.htm

Back on July 1st, I wrote about a new air purifier I had acquired -- LINK.

That new air purifier has been great, and I've been wanting to get 2 or 3 more similar units to scatter around my condo. Namely in that it has been very effective at dealing with odors, and its odor sensor to make it come up when needed.

Yes, it is interesting how during the night, the air purifier will rev up now and then. Especially lately, where Aerophagia is a known side-effect of CPAP therapy. Though disturbing is that when I take a shower (and the bathroom exhaust fan is going, its on the same switch as the bathroom light....though I'm thinking that someday I'll see about separating the two)....I will come out and find it rev'd up.

Anyways...I original got it to help combat the odors that come up in my condo from my neighbors. Before it was like food odors, and the neighbor seemed a good cook....though sometimes the smell was something being burnt. But, the new neighbors seem to like excessive strong scents on stuff, and other neighbors like using gallons of lighter fluid when the grill.

One of the problem areas is near where there's a hole in my floor into the unit below....by the dryer. So, I've been thinking of getting another unit to put here.

After months of wanting to get one, I finally decided I couldn't put it off any longer and pulled the trigger on one. But, size is a factor for this location (and so was price) So, I went looking for possibly a smaller unit for this location. There was a smaller version of the same or similar air purifier, but it was almost as expensive as the size I had gotten....especially since the larger size is often on sale (as it was at this particular moment). The smaller one was on sale around black friday, but Sears didn't actually have any in stock (for online purchase)...and when Sears sent me the email that it was back in stock...the sale was over.

So, I expanded my search to include other models with similar features available through Amazon Prime. And, this was one of the units that seemed to fit the bill. Though it turned out to be much bigger than I expected. But, I set it up there and it seems to do the job.

Though so far no strong odors for it to deal with. Though it did react when I was making shake and bake.

It was interesting to note that it didn't react when I was taking my shower this morning, though the bedroom air purifier still did.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
