Received the ARO-MAX 16,000 but wasn't sure what diffuser oil to try first. Getting two Aromatic Discovery Set - Introductory Samplers was a big help. We went through all 10, marked the ones we liked, then when back through the ones we liked and decided on one scent. I ordered two 500ml bottles to fill the ARO-MAX and have some left over. Installation of the ARO-MAX wasn't too bad. Not a fan of just pushing the hose through a snug-fitting hole in the HVAC plenum, but it works.
When I first turned it on it was set to a default which had our 7,000 sqft house smelling great immediately. Realizing this was a lot. I downloaded the app, go the ARO-MAX paired to my phone, and adjusted the output. I decided on a setting of 10 seconds run time every 10 minutes which IMO is very nice. We leave our HVAC system fan on 24/7 to filter the air, and evenly provide comfort. This works very well to distribute the ARO-MAX diffused scent.
I chose the ARO-MAX 16,000 due to the size of our home. Yet to be determined is how long the 800ml bottle will last at the current setting I've chosen before it needs filled again.
The only thing I wish the ARO-MAX 16,000 could do, is detect when there is no airflow in the HVAC system so that it doesn't run during times of no airflow. Our HVAC in heat mode is hybrid, when it switches to fossil fuel mode, the HVAC fan stops running while the fossil fuel ignites to warm the heat exchanger. During this 'pause' time if the ARO-MAX runs, the diffused scent will settle in the plenum until the fan comes back on.
I do like that the BlueTooth is reachable through our hardwood floors eliminating the need to go into the basement utility room to make changes.
I wish the unit was WiFi capable, or an add on for WiFi was available that provided a web browser interface.
No instructions about the fan or when to use it. No ability to order more hoses either. The machine works as intended though.
Bought with mixed feelings. However, the unit was more area than needed so oils will last. We are very satisfied with purchase all questions answered quickly
Great product and Excellent customert service.
