Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier With Humidifying Function - KC860U

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 Plasmacluster 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.
  • Front Display shows Plasmacluster operation, dust monitor and humidity level.
  • 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. The special Antimicrobial Layer provides extra protection against viruses and allergens.
  • Plasmacluster Technology splits water molecules into positively and negatively charged ions which spread throughout the room. This system effectively refreshes the air similar 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 17 decibels, about the volume of rustling leaves. The KC-860U 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 five years* so operating costs are low.
  • Stylish Design looks great in any home or office.

      This humidifier is very easy to use and much quieter than the model we had previously. Definitely great to have a combo humidifier/air purifier. We liked it so much that we even got a second unit.

            One button, unit is fully automatic for cleaning the air and also for humidification. Easy to fill, the unit self monitors and you can see the gage react when the air quality gets bad. i.e. when I burn a pizza.

              Comments about Sharp Plasmacluster Air Purifier With Humidifying Function:

              I purchased this product mainly for its humidifier function, and was hoping it could perform as well or better than my Air-O-swiss 7144, which it does. My Air-O-swiss 7144 struggled to get my humidity level to a manageable state >30%, the sharp plasmacluster achieves this with no problem, while at the same time filtering my air. Maintenance frequency and cost of ownership is great on the plamsacluster, filters are washable and last 2 (charcoal) and 5 (HEPA) years. The filtering fuction is very effecient and sensitive, which I like. When I first used the unit and my air was still dry, when I scooped my cats litter box the unit would register the dust in the air, and would start filtering it, as you could observe from the trasitioning red to green indicators on the front of the unit. The unit is vey attractive in design, definitely not an eye sore that needs to be hidden like other units on the market. The unit is quiet when running, almost not noticable, especially at medium and low speeds. Overall I am very happy with this unit, it actually does what it claims to do.
