Looking for one purifier that does it all? The comprehensive UV Air Purifier employs all the technologies: HEPA, carbon, UV light and ionization. Phase 1 removes larger particulates. Phase 2 uses gas-absorbing activated zeolite to remove hydrocarbons, pesticides, VOCs, formaldehyde, solvents, chlorine and cleaning chemicals. Phase 3 strips air of odors and low-level gases with activated carbon. Phase 4 sends air through a HEPA filter that removes allergens, smoke particles and other pollutants. In the final phase, the air passes through UV light that kills bacteria and viruses. Infrared motion sensors control speed to reduce operating costs when rooms are unoccupied. A chemical sensor monitors air quality and alerts you to buildup of dangerous contaminants such as carbon monoxide. Indicator light signals filter change. Uses 110W on high. 18"H x 21½"W x 8"D. 23 lbs. USA.

The UV Air Purifier Replacement Kit includes all filters and UV bulb for replacement every year.

Technology Glossary
Carbon: removes common household odors from cleaners, paints, solvents and other chemical substances.

HEPA = High Efficiency Particulate Air: filter traps tiny airborne particles. Rated 99.97% removal at 0.3 microns in size.

Ion = Ionization: ions attract and attach themselves to airborne irritants, including smoke, dander and bacteria. The irritants are then drawn into the filter or dropped to the ground, out of the air.

UV = Ultraviolet Light: when exposed to UV, bacteria and viruses are killed on contact. *Volatile Organic Compounds

¹Life expectancy of any air filter media is dependent on the concentration of the contaminants to which the system is exposed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Most comprehensive & effective -a real life saver Over 8 years ago I had such severe environmental illness that I was at risk of slipping into a coma and dieing. This purifier was an important part of pulling me back from the brink of death. I've had mine for 8 years and I absolutely love it. Over the years I've had many opportunities to make comparisons between how I felt being in both public and private places without it and being in my home(s) with it; the difference it makes is actually palpable -even when some of the other places had air purification systems. Mine has been "ON" 24 hours a day every single day since the day I received it and it's still running like it's brand new! It's one of the best investments I've ever made for my health. Any indoor environment will be greatly improved by this purifier. If you or someone you care for has health issues I strongly encourage you to buy this purifier. It employs ALL air purification technologies. I'm certain that you'll be pleased by the big difference it will make. September 20, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy I did a lot of research for air filters-- I decided on this one because it filters almost everything, and I liked the thin & flat design so it can go relatively inconspicuously up against a wall. I got it initially for my workplace classroom when it was a brand new building (hoping to help get rid of outgassing, etc.); and brought it home after a year to put in the bedroom-- the place I feel is most important to have a good air filter. Although this is the kind of item I just have to trust is doing it's job, as far as its manufacturing, ease of use, and ease of replacement filters & bulbs, I have been very happy. Still haven't seen one out there I'd choose instead! July 9, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great improvement in air quality Caught a respiratory infection with some lingering issues.   Woke up every morning with a cough.  Plugged this unit in and in one day I started to notice  a difference.   Friend with allergies also had lessening of symptoms. I would highly recommend this unit. October 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by don't delay on replacing filters this is a great air filter, but one thing to be aware of is that you can't stretch out the filter life: replace them promptly (on an annual basis). Twice I have tried to stretch it to 13 or 14 months, and both times the machine was blowing out smelly air! May 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Air Purifier We've Tried! We've tried several different types of air purifiers and this one surpasses them all. Makes sense, since it incorporates 5 different types of filtration and purification. We bought one for the main room of the house, and it was so fantastic, we bought a second one for the bedroom. The sleep mode, and "Extra-small Room" setting makes it quiet enough for the bedroom. All-in-all, well worth the cost. July 20, 2011

I have a cat that is very sensitive to coconut oil and cannot have it in the house. Can you be very specific to what exactly is in the carbon and if it is possible to have it scent free. I would prefer to have an odorless machine. Also what is the noise level of this machine? Would like something as close to silent as possible.

Thank you.

Although ozone is a natural part of the atmosphere, performing several important duties, increased levels of ozone can cause various health issues. People who are already contending with various respiratory problems like asthma and allergies face worsened conditions and an increase in symptoms when they are exposed to higher-than-normal levels of ozone. Ozone also compromises the body’s natural ability to fight off certain respiratory illnesses, causing an increase in bronchitis and other ailments. When breathed regularly, ozone can damage people’s lungs and cause coughing, chest pains, shortness of breath and sore throats.
There are "acceptable" levels of ozone emission from air purifiers; I'd like the specifications for this particular machine, please? Thank you very much!

Answer: 
The Sun Pure Air purifiers produces no ozone! Below is a detailed description of the stages in which this UV Air Purifier works.

STEP ONE: Cleans the Air of Macro Particles
A treated (5) micron pre-filter removes all particles from the air larger than (5) microns, extending the life of the Hepa filter and protects the gas absorbing media from dust coating and fouling.

STEP TWO: Removes Toxic Chemicals and Gases
A specially formulated gas absorption media removes exhaust fumes, organic hydrocarbons, pesticides, formaldehyde from particle board used in home construction, paint solvents, chlorine, cleaning chemicals and other toxic fumes.

STEP THREE: Eliminates Household Odors
Activated coconut carbon pleated for maximum surface area removes unpleasant odors from the air caused by cooking, heating and air-conditioning systems, pets and nearby industrial processing plants. Activated carbon also rids the air of irritating low level ozone.

STEP FOUR: Hospital Grade HEPA Filter Removes Allergens
Hepa filters remove allergens so small that they can only be seen with a microscope. Pollen, mold, fungal spores, dust mites, cockroach dust, tobacco smoke and bacteria are but a few examples.

STEP FIVE: Ultraviolet Light Kills Disease Germs on Contact
Ultraviolet light 10,000 times the intensity of sunlight kills viruses and bacteria on contact. Ultraviolet technology is an important feature in air purification since germs are easily spread from one person to another by central heating and air-conditioning systems.

STEP SIX: Negative Ions Improve Sleep and Keep Air Fresh
Ultraviolet light accelerates the natural purification properties of ordinary oxygen and creates small amounts of negative ions the same way as sunlight and oxygen in the outdoor environment keep air clean and free from disease germs. Negative ions are believed to help induce sleep.
