Daikin Air Purifiers

Overview

Daikin makes air purifiers that use ionizers and electrostatic precipitators preceded by a pre-filter for filtration.  These may or may not be effective at cleaning the air.  There have been no independent studies we could find that measured the effectiveness of Daikin air purifiers.

Daikin Air Purifier Technology

Daikin launched their range of residential and commercial air purifiers in 2007, and they claimed that their purifiers were the first on the market to incorporate both a humidifying and de-humidifying system. Today, Daikin purifiers consist of the photocatalytic model, which features the Flash Streamer system and specializes in odor, virus, bacteria and allergen removal, and the humidifying/purifying model, which incorporate the Japanese Ururu humidifying technology.

Daikin purifiers are sold all over the globe under only the "Daikin" brand name, and their photocatalytic air purifier has been given the stamp of approval by the British Allergy Foundation and has also been certified as safe by the TUV (Technischer Überwachungs-Verein / Technical Inspection Association). Daikin air purifiers usually sell for between $420 and $490.
