Operating Instructions for the Ionic Breeze

The Ionic Breeze air purifier, manufactured by The Sharper Image, uses ultraviolet (UV) light to filter the air in your home.

The Ionic Breeze can run continuously.
You can also run the unit on the basic filtration setting, which does not use the UV lamp. Place the Ionic Breeze in any room of your home you wish to purify, such as a bedroom or family room. If you have a large home, you may wish to use several air purifiers. .

Plug the unit into an outlet and position it one foot away from a wall.

Switch the control knob to "On" to allow the Ionic Breeze to begin filtering the air.

Turn the control knob to the "On/G.P." setting to allow the air to filter through the UV lamp, if desired.

Set the desired power level with the power control knob at the right-hand side of the top of the unit. Your options are high, medium or low.

Use the boost button above the power control knob, if desired, to run the Ionic Breeze at the highest setting for five minutes. Once this time has passed, the unit will automatically adjust back to your selected settings.


  • Turn the unit off and wipe the dust from the collection grid at least every two weeks, or more often if the indicator light flashes a red light. Let the collection grid dry completely before reinserting it.


  • Avoid staring directly at the UV lamp, which can damage your eyesight.
