Genesis Air and Quest for Life Air Purifiers

Genesis Air doesn't openly provide the information necessary for me to be able to feature all their air purifiers in the comparison chart. The 2008 RGS and the 2006 D&L were the only ones I could get pricing information on after a lot of back and forth with the company. These Genesis Air systems are designed for installation in ventilation systems and are built with an emphasis on PCO (photocatalytic oxidation) technology. The QFL (Quest for Life) Air Purifier uses ionization and ozone and appears to be a foreign made import. Use the comparison chart to compare this PCO technology to other air purifiers that use PCO technology in the industry. You will find that these systems are not competitive with industry leaders.
