Can ozone itself cause allergies?

Ozone is NOT bad! You breathe ozone everyday and everywhere outdoors from the mountains to the beaches. If there is sun outside, there is Ozone produced. If Ozone was dangerous or harmful, then you would NOT be able to breathe at the beach, after thunder or lightning storms, in the mountains, etc. TOO MUCH ozone in a confined area however may be irritable to some people, and this is what you want to try to avoid. You want to make sure you run the Ozone at LOW setting on each of your unit(s), just as directed in the Owner's Manual. Simply adjust the "Purifier/Sanitizer O3" setting down to 0-500 sq.ft. or LOW and always run each unit at that setting. Should you notice there is still more ozone produced at that setting than you're comfortable with, first remove one of the (2) ozone plates from the air purifier if it runs on more than one, and see if this helps for the next 48 hours. If this does not help, then just turn the Ozone production OFF completely on the machine, by bringing the "Purifier/Sanitizer O3" knob all the way down to Zero (0). Your unit(s) will operate just fine without the ozone function, since every other function is independent of ozone production and will still work. As a side note, by adjusting the Ozone output down or turning it off completely, you may find that your problem has nothing to do with the ozone at all, and you just developed allergies because of other factors, which could be many beginning with outdoor air pollution, pets you may have indoors, dust or other allergens in the air, chemicals inside the house, etc. In any case, you should always run the units with a LOW level of Ozone, since higher amounts are not even necessary. Only trace amount (equal to that outdoors) is all that's needed to keep the odors out and have clean, fresh air in your home! Higher ozone settings are optional and should only be used temporarily, as directed, usually in unoccupied areas for sanitizing purposes and only if necessary.
