Renew: Why does my new Renew smell strange?
Updated over a week ago

So you just purchased your new Airthings Renew and are ready to purify the air around you! But wait, why is it giving off a strange smell?

This is completely normal.

Similar to how mattresses and other household appliances have to go through an off-gassing period, the best air purifiers also need to take a moment to off-gas. Do not worry, this will subside in a few days.

  • If the smell is bothersome initially, we recommend using the product in an isolated room at first to allow it to off-gas.

*Note this smell shouldn’t stick around much longer than a few days. If the smell persists (or turns into a burning smell), you should reach out to support@airthings.com for further help.*
