Woongjin Coway Air Purifiers

Woongjin Coway is a Korean company that produces air purifiers and imports them into the United States. These air purfiiers rely primarily on filtration and have some odd filter combinations. In some cases, they use ionization. A few meet HEPA filtration standards. These air purifiers are high priced for their performance capabilities and cost a fair bit over the long term. In my opinion, these type of air purifiers are designed to milk your money through an extensive array of replacement filters, Each of these air purifiers seems to have 4 or 5 of them. But don't take my word for it, study the comparison charts below and compare these air purifiers to other air purifiers in the marketplace.
