Ionization is completely different than ozonation. Ions are just tiny little particles that attach to dust in the air and give them a charge. They will not kill odors or destroy mold. They do not kill viruses, either. They won’t even destroy a tiny little odor. What they do that is valuable is that by attaching to the particulates in a given area they knock them down out of the air, this means that you are not breathing them. If you are not breathing them it’s better for your lungs.I use an ionizer in my home for my families indoor air quality. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_ioniser)
