"This is the most energy-efficient air purifier available! It removes allergens, pet dander, and viruses from the air you
breathe, and unlike most air purifiers, this one cleans more efficiently by moving a large air volume — 150 CADR (Clean
Air Delivery Rate) — with minimal fan power — so it's whisper quiet and helps you maintain a low electric bill.
The electrostatic filter lasts for the life of the unit, so it saves you periodic filter replacements, and cleans with a
quick rinse of water. This ultra-quiet, environmentally friendly unit measures only 15.5" x 9.5" x 6", and easily handles
a 20’ x 20’ room." — Richard
There are many choices in air purifiers, but this one really stands out as unique. To begin with, it is important
to understand there are two main categories of air purifiers. One group has replaceable, disposable filters, and
these are very difficult to maintain, always needing you to find, buy, and replace a filter. Not only is this
expensive, but usually your filter does not get changed on time. In addition, replaceable filter units are usually
quite noisy, as it takes a big fan to push air through a disposable filter. Lastly, they use a lot of electricity,
100 watts or more. So these are not very economical or user-friendly over the long term. To compare with our AP360

What has really become popular the last ten years are electrostatic air purifiers, which work by creating a small
charge of static electricity onto metal plates. Virtually anything that is airborne is trapped and sticks to the
plates, where it stays until you rinse off the removable metal filter. The advantage is this takes very little energy,
about 10 watts or less, and is very quiet because the fan is so small. Also, these electrostatic filters remove viruses,
molds, pet dander, and make the room smell good.
Because the filter is a metal filter, you just easily clean it by washing it with a hose, or brushing it with the
included brush. It is very convenient, just pull it out. There is nothing complicated or confusing.
There are some good electrostatic air purifiers out there, from Oreck, Brookstone, Costco, and others. However, this newest creation, from
one of the most reliable manufacturers, is superior in cost, air flow, size, and noise reduction.
This new unit is the most compact and most powerful on the market. It moves air with a rating of 150 CADR, which is
a clean air delivery rate measurement. That is really a great measurement, better than anything at this energy consumption
level, and this unit is also extremely low-noise. There is nothing on the market with this high of a level of air movement that
is this compact and quiet, and yet uses just pennies a day to run. In fact, the AP-360 (with 10.79 Dust CADR/W) is the most
efficient portable air cleaner on the product list from the Energy Star web site for March 2010.
In 20 years of reviewing and shopping for air purifiers, this is the best product yet. You are sure to be pleased, and
you have our 30-day return privilege (pre-paid), and our 12-month warranty, to make sure you're satisfied.
- Speed: high, medium, low, whisper
- Filter: permanent and washable
- Environmentally Friendly: The filter is permanent and made to last for the entire life of the unit
- Energy Saving:
Air resistance through the filter is small and modest energy is required to move large volumes of air for efficient air cleaning.
This produces little fan noise and helps keep electric bills low.

- Efficient Filtering: Only one filter is required to remove the large and fine particles in the air
- Constant Clean Air: The air resistance of the filter throughout operation is constant, so the
rate of clean air output does not drop over time
- Removes Microorganisms and Unwanted Smells: The electrostatic process does generate an unnoticeable
amount of ozone as a byproduct, and this ozone byproduct is well within every safe limit of California and US standards.
Some people like this byproduct, because it does have the effect of neutralizing smells and microorganisms collected on
the filter plates. Periodic cleaning of the metal filter, by spraying with water or using the included brush, will help prevent
the spread of potentially harmful germs. Individuals who have a hyper-sensitivity to ozone may or may not notice it, but
are welcome to try it risk-free, with our free return privilege and pre-paid return label.
