During days of haze, many of us were hiding indoors to stay away from the bad particles in the air outside. But do you know the air in our house could be just as bad too? The air pollution inside your home could be up to five times worse than outside, and we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors. Think about it, the fume from the cooking stove, pet fur around the house, dust from carpets, sheets, sofas, hair spray we use daily and many others which we may be already immune to the smell and is no longer a “pollutant” in our mindset. Of cos, on days when the haze is very bad, it’s advisable to stay indoor and have proper air purifier or solution to help us breathe better.
How do we know if the air we breathe in our house is good or bad?
Does it mean the air is bad only When you smell something pungent in the house? Or when you start getting itch in the nose? It is really not easy to find out the air condition since we can’t see air. But now there’s an app created by Dyson that let’s you monitor and control the air quality in your house.
A team of Dyson software and mechanical engineers were tasked to make the problem of indoor air pollution visible. The new Dyson Link App, developed for iOS and Android, will allow users to:
- Remotely monitor the inside air quality via the app – even if they are out of the house. This way, users can stay on top of the air quality inside their homes, can see the purifier and set a new target before ‘very poor’ levels are reached.
- Keep track of the air quality history, allowing them to oversee peak pollution times, for example during pollen seasons or when cleaning or cooking. If auto-mode is selected, the machine can then automatically react to the monitored air quality.
The new Dyson Pure Cool™ Link purifier fan uses a unique 360° Glass HEPA filter. This technology captures 99.95% of ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants as small as 0.1µ from the air – keeping them in the filter. And it doesn’t stop there; sensors inside the machine detect changes in conditions, before automatically adjusting airflow to maintain the target air quality. The machine projects cleaner, purified air around the room evenly and quietly. It also doubles up as a fan to cool you in this hot weather we have in Singapore.
I’ve been using the Dyson Pure Cool™ Link purifier fan and Dyson Link app for awhile now. I’d initially placed the purifier fan in the living room but later decided to move it into the kids play room (because the unit is soooo light! you can move anyone you want.). Now I have it turned on daily with the schedule I set through the Dyson Link app, ensuring that the unit is on and my girls will have cleaner air when they play in the room every day.
With the app, I can even monitor the air quality while traveling home and choose to switch it on if the level is not to a preset level. Very useful if you know that a baby is visiting and you want to ensure the room is clear from any form of air pollutant.
The app also shows you the air quality level over a period of time so you can monitor when it’s necessary to have the purifier on.
It’s not just me who loves the Dyson Pure Cool™ Link purifier fan, even my youngest is loving this new tower in her room. This is the only fan in the house which she is allowed to go near to when turned on; and she get to even do silly actions with it because it is safe.
If you are planning to get an air purifier soon (before the next wave of haze hits Singapore), the Dyson Pure Cool™ Link purifier tower fan is available at all major departmental stores and electrical multiples in Singapore for S$1,099. The desktop purifier will be available from end-May for S$699. Dyson Pure Cool™ Link purifier fan has a two year parts and labour warranty.
