Sharp KC 850U Plasmacluster Air Purifier with Humidifying Function
Sharp KC 850U Plasmacluster Air Purifier with Humidifying Function is one of the best air purifiers on the market right now. The function of this air purifier is exactly as it sounds. It's designed to help increase the air quality in the area it's placed. This can be a bedroom, a living room or even an office. It can pull the dust and debris from the air, leaving your lungs breathing the fresh air instead. It also has a humidifier built in to add a dash of moisture to the area. This helps to clear out the passages in your sinuses and allows for more intake of fresh air. This is a great product to have in your home or your office.
Sharp KC-850U Plasmacluster Air Purifier Features

- Energy Star seal means it's conservative of electricity and won't eat your bill up
- The humidifier is less than average; it isn't enough to replace an existent one (if required)

Now, the same cons could be said about many air purifying units, so it's not fair to judge the system based on them. Many air purifying systems use a rear air intake, so they are best when used in the center of an area. Also, the cost to replace filters is often the same from unit to unit. The most important thing about an air purifying system is that it works and it's fairly quiet. In that regard, the Sharp Plasmacluster Ion Air Purifier KC 850U is golden.
The silence means you can use the system in an office space while on the telephone. Or even over night in your bedroom without being awake by the humming or buzzing of the machine. It's a great product because it really does clear the air. Your lungs will thank you, so will those of your guests or clients, depending on the location of the system.
