Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier With Humidifying Function - KC830U

Sharp’s new Plasmacluster Air Purifiers with humidifying function offer a unique combination of air treatment technologies to make you and your family more comfortable, whatever the season. Bacteria, germs, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, smoke, dust and odors can make breathing harder, especially for asthma and allergy suffers. These air purifiers help remove these irritants from the air that passes through it with an ultra quiet fan that draws air through a three-stage filter system. Plus, their revolutionary Plasmacluster Ion Technology actively refreshes the air. For an even more comfortable environment, when the Pasmacluster Air Purifier is on, its sensors constantly monitor the air quality in your room, adjusting the fan for air purity while providing the optimum humidity level. This combination of features is a smart way to choose cleaner, healthier, more breathable air.

Features:

  • New Humidification Function adds humidity to the air for more comfortable air quality, especially in colder weather. It also helps reduce static electricity that results from dry air.
  • True HEPA Filter captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air that passes through it, including pollen, mold, pet dander and dust.
  • Plasmacluster Technology splits water molecules into positively and negatively charged ions which spread throughout the room. This system effectively refreshes the air similiar to the way nature cleans the environment near waterfalls or just after a thunderstorm.
  • Clean Sign Indicator shows the level of impurities in the air passing through the filter so it’s easy to see the progress as healthier, cleaner air is returned into the room.
  • Manual Operation lets the user choose among 3 fan speeds and the Quick Clean mode.
  • Automatic Operation uses sensors to automatically adjust fan speed for the degree of cleaning and/or humidification required.
  • Library Quiet™ operation is ideal for bedrooms and living rooms. Silent Mode is as quiet as 22 decibels, about the volume of rustling leaves. The KC-830U is among the quietest Air Purifiers with a true HEPA filter available anywhere.
  • Energy Efficient operation means it’s easy on the wallet. With its advanced technologies, it is 35% more energy-efficient than standard models, making it ENERGY STAR qualified. So it can operate all the time, saving money while improving the quality of the air.
  • Ultra Long Life HEPA Filters require changing only once every two years* so operating costs are low.
  • Stylish Design looks great in any home or office.

      Comments about Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier With Humidifying Function:

      I give this 4.5 ****+ stars. I was thrilled to find a quality air cleaner that also doubles as a humidifier, to save space without having to use 2 separate units in the BR. This unit is easy to use--tap water is fine to fill the tank, unless you have very hard water. Also easy to clean compared to other humidifiers we have had in the past. Main cleaning is 1x month-- takes less than 30 minutes and you dont have to use bleach!

      Its not cheap, but you dont have to buy all these solutions to sanitize or worry about mold, etc if you follow the easy cleaning process.

      It didnt get 5 **** because there is a big difference in the Low setting (library quiet) and the Medium setting, which is too loud for us in the BR. So, we run it on Low, but still have to run another air cleaner or white noise machine to get the level of background noise we need.

      The lights on the unit really light up the wall, so we need to turn most of them off at night.

      Comments about Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier With Humidifying Function:

      Took a while to find the proper setting that would balance purifying with humidifying. The 'auto' setting moves the air so much it sucked the water tank dry very quickly but did not humidify the air adequately almost as if one function cancelled out the other. However, set on low, there seems to be both adequate air cleaning and humidifying and the water lasts longer, however we still need to refill it 3 times a day, keep the bedroom door closed and keep it working 24 hours to maintain the appropriate humidity. It is super quiet, looks great and is easy to refill. I think it would best be described as an air purifier first and a humidifier second, but overall, we are pleased. During the warmer weather, we will use it primarily as an air cleaner, so the water usage will become unimportant and we will be able to set it on a higher speed during our allergy seasons. It might be helpful to know that I contacted both Sharp and ABT in search of replacement filters and thankfully ABT advised that they can be ordered through them. Presently, they are not shown on their web site, you will need to contact ABT by phone or email to place an order. They do not need to be replaced often, once every two years for the HEPA/carbon filters and once a year for the water filter, but I just wanted to be sure I could get the filters when I need them. BTW, Sharp knew absolutely nothing and was unable to help. This replaces a Venta air washer for us which only lasted two years, was more of a humidifier than an air cleaner and was much noisier.

      It is a great product! It has no cons in my evaluation, except that it is meant for a smaller bedroom, and it is a bit pricey.
      Definitely recommend it!!!
