EnviroQuest Air Purifiers

EnviroQuest air purifiers seem to be a spin off the old Alpine Air Purifiers company. These systems use active purification processes to clean the air in homes and offices. The technologies used include ionization, ozone, pco (photo-catalytic oxidation) technology, and ESP (electrostatic precipitator) technology. The comparison charts outline the costs and benefits of these air purifiers, which are designed to compete with top tier active purification systems (like Vollara's Fresh Air) in terms of cost to value benefit. Use the charts to find the air purifier that is right for you.
