Dyson Unveils New Air Purifying Fans For Healthier Homes
Renowned for its portfolio of high-powered vacuums, Dyson has unveiled its new ‘Pure Cool’ air purifying fans, focused on reducing indoor air pollution for healthier homes.
At an event in New York on Tuesday, Dyson unveiled its new ‘Pure Cool’ fans, which claim to trap 99.95% of ultrafine particles – to 0.1 microns.
During its launch event, Dyson warned attendees about the health issues associated with pollution and natural environmental factors (such as pollen), when combined with indoor chemical smells (e.g. candles, cooking fumes, cleaning products etc).
As reported by Forbes, the UK-based electrical company asserts air purification is essential, as modern homes have an increasing tendency to trap pollutants:
“Most of the air we consume is indoors where we spend 90% of our time, but it can contain microscopic particles which are invisible to the human eye”
“Because modern homes are becoming better sealed to comply with energy efficiency requirements, pollutants can be trapped inside and circulation of airflow can become compromised”.
Dyson affirms its new Pure Cool air purifying fans have been tested in ‘real home’ conditions, not just lab/test conditions.
In addition to an efficient filter, Dyson’s Pure Cool fans automatically sense and capture pollutants, whilst projecting cleaner air into a room via ‘Air Multiplier Technology’.
The product claims to be the only device of its type on the market, which projects clean air into every corner of a room.
Activated carbon filters aim to increase absorption efficiency, whilst removing gases such as formaldehyde and benzene.
Courtesy of three laser sensors the Pure Cool air purifying fan measures and detects ultra fine particles, in addition to gauging the amount of VOCs present (i.e. Volatile Organic Compounds, such as benzene and formaldehyde, emitted from burning candles). The third sensor measures heat and humidity.
The air purifying fan also boasts a special ‘winter-friendly’ mode, which offers air purification without blowing cool air.
The Pure Cool fans are compatible with Dyson’s Link iOS and Android app, which gives users the ability to easily measure the device’s performance.
Available in a large ‘tower’ or small desk format, Dyson’s new Pure Cool air purifying fan (£399.99) will first roll out in the UK at the end of the month. Australian pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed.
