Hoover Air Purifier with Tio2 Technology - WH10600

Hoover Air Purifiers

Hoover offers a selection of hybrid air purifiers that combine filtration technology with ionization and in some cases PCO (photocatalytic oxidation) technology. It is a common misconception on the internet that Hoover air purifier model numbers 100, 200, 400, 600 correlate to the square footage coverage of these units. According to the Hoover company, this is not the case and as you can see in the comparison chart, these air purifiers have very limited square foot coverage. The comparison chart provided gives you a look at the costs and benefits associated with Hoover air purifiers so you can find the air purifier that suits your budget and your needs.
