Detailed Description for Germ Guardian Hygia 6.0 Air Purifier
Hygia 6.0, is a six stage air
purifier including HEPA and titanium dioxide making it a remarkably versatile
and effective air purifier. It can cope with the smallest of allergens or obnoxious
odors, chemicals and gases in one pass through its six stage system. On lower
settings it is unobtrusively quiet, and its sleek styling fits nicely into any
decor. It is sized for a smallish room for a maximum coverage of 144 sq feet,
so we recommend using it in a child's bedroom, small office or kitchen. We loved
the user friendly dashboard which alerts you to when to change the filters and
auto monitors the air quality in your room. We appreciated the convenience and
the little extra luxury touch of a remote control. This air purifier is Swedish
made quality engineering at its best.
