Ionic Pro and Therapure Air Purifiers

Ionic Pro and Therapure Air Purifiers are all made by the Ionic Pro company. Ionic Pro models rely on ionization and ozone to clean the air. Therapure model purifiers rely on filtration and photo catalytic oxidation (PCO) technology that uses a Tio2 (titanium dioxide) catalyst. This is the most basic form of PCO technology. These air purifiers are low end in quality and tend to cost excessively for the performance they give out. However, they do seem to be popular air purifiers with consumers. The comparison charts below will allow you to see the costs and benefits of these air purifiers for yourself and compare them to the competition. These charts allow you to cut through the misinformation created by advertising to get a more realistic look at what these air purifiers do.
