- Smart Cooling Air Purifiers
Panasonic Smart Cooling Air Purifier not only cleans and humidifies indoor air, but also cools the atmosphere with innovative mist cooling technology. The Smart Cooling Air Purifier comes with a HEPA Filter, which captures 99.97% of particles keeping the indoor environment cleaner. It also features the ability of effectively lowering the temperature up to 10⁰C. The high-speed Mist rotor converts water to invisible mist particles with the centrifugal force. The mist particles are easily evaporated into the air lowering temperature and improving air moisture. Smart Cooling Air Purifier displays the level of clean air, and also features a sandstorm mode. Keeping convenience in mind Panasonic has designed Smart Cool with 360⁰ Wheel, remote controls, and 15 L water tank for longer operating time.
- Other Air Purifiers
