The Sharp Plasmacluster™ Ion Air Purifier with True HEPA Filter effectively reduces pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, germs, bacteria, viruses, odors, mold, and fungus in your living space. There is a three-stage filter system including a permanent micro-mesh pre-filter, activated carbon filter, and long-life True HEPA filter, which captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air that passes through it. Patented Plasmacluster Ion Technology disperses positively and negatively charged ions throughout the room to safely break down microorganisms and odors (even those trapped in fabric, carpeting, and drapery!). It is an ideal solution for allergy sufferers, asthmatics, pet owners, and smokers, and best used in a bedroom, living room, study, or exercise room. There are 3 manual fan speeds. The unit has LibraryQuiet™ operation (as quiet as 29 decibels, or the sound of rustling leaves) and is ENERGY STAR® rated, so you can run the unit continuously while saving money and energy.
From the Manufacturer
Plasmacluster ions reduce germs, viruses, bacteria, odors, and mold throughout the room.
Traditional filter-based systems rely on air passing through the filter. Plasmacluster ions can spread to every corner of the room to actively clean.
True HEPA filtration captures 99.97% of pollen, dust, pet dander, and smoke particles as small as 0.3 microns.*
*From the air that passes through the filter
Pet allergens and tobacco smoke particles are typically smaller than 1 micron. With True HEPA filtration, more of these particles can be captured.
Four different capacities to cover small bedrooms up to large living rooms!
Plasmacluster ions are proven to significantly reduce bacteria viruses, mold and fungus.
It can be difficult to see what's in your air, since many airborne particles are not visible to the human eye. This air purifier senses & reports your air quality & humidity level, and automatically adjusts operation as needed.
Sharp air purifiers are Energy Star rated and highly efficient, so you don't have to worry about leaving the unit on all the time.
Plasmacluster ions destroy odors at the molecular level, even removing embedded odors in carpeting, drapery, and furniture.
Ionizers add a negative charge to airborne particles which makes them stick to furniture, walls, & floors. Only Plasmacluster ion technology is proven to effectively kill germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, fungus, and odors.
Humidifiers can help relieve sinus issues, dry throat, dry eyes, and chapped lips. They can also help relieve dry skin caused by psoriasis, thyroid disorders, topical medications, and cosmetics.
The water tank for the built-in humidifier is easily removed from the side of the unit and can be filled at the sink with tap water.
