Sunpentown Air Purifiers

Sunpentown air purifiers are hybrid systems that combine filtration with active purification processes. These air purifiers use low end PCO technology. These are low end air purifiers that are cheap to purchase but cost a lot over a 10 year period of time. They have limited performance capabilities and will probably disappoint if you are looking for them to solve a serious air quality problem. These air purifiers will work ok in situations where you need the air somewhat cleaned. But they are not highly efficient in performance. Use the comparison charts to see how these air purifiers compare to other competitors so you can make an educated decision about the air purifiers you use.
