Daikin Air Purifiers - Using Photo Catalytic Technology

Daikin Air Purifier - Uses Photo Catalytic Technology

Photo Catalytic Technology is a new craze in air purification and Daikin has stepped right into it with this air purifier. The best photo catalytic technology is so vastly superior to Daikin technology at a better price, its a no brainer that this air purifier, while appealing to the eye, is not worth purchasing. Also, photo catalytic technology only cleans one or two aspects of the air. Its important in active air purification to have a synergy of processes cleaning the air together. Study all our air purifier comparison charts but I can tell you the best active air purifiers is the Vollara Fresh Air and it uses the world's current best form of photo catalytic oxidation technology. Vollara calls it ActivePure or Radiant Catalytic Ionization. There are also many other products similar to Daikin that are better.

Breathe Easy Dometic Air Purifier

Dometic Breathe Easy Air Purifier

A moderately effective air purifier, its certainly not one of the best, and not even the best priced air purifier for its performance. We researched the entire market of air purifiers extensively and provide all the comparison charts so you can analyze the date yourself. But if you are looking for quick answers, Vollara Fresh Air and Enviroquest air purifiers are the best both in cost and performance.
