Dyson is expanding its home appliance product portfolio with the new Pure Cool Link purifier fan, an app-connected, intelligent purifier that advises on the air quality of your home, and removes detected pollutants.
According to data from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and cited by Dyson, the air pollution in your home can be up to five times worse than outside
The Dyson Pure Cool Link reports the live indoor and outdoor air quality via the new Dyson Link App, allowing users to remotely control their indoor air quality at all times.
"We think it is polluted outside of our homes, but the air inside can be far worse," says James Dyson. "Dyson engineers focused on developing a purifier that automatically removes ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants from the indoor air, feeding real time air quality data back to you."
According to the Government of Canada, household products like furniture, wallpaper and cleaning products can emit gases into your indoor air. Others include gases from cooking and central heating, mould, pet hair, pollen and allergens. Invisible to the naked eye, these ultrafine and potentially harmful particles can travel easily through the air in our homes and into our lungs. Air purifiers can help combat indoor pollution. But existing purifiers often use inefficient filters, allowing potentially harmful, ultrafine particles to escape back to the room.
Dyson's Pure Cool Link purifier fan uses a 360° Glass HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of pollutants and allergens as small as 0.3 microns from the air - keeping them in the filter. Sensors inside the machine detect changes in conditions before automatically adjusting airflow to maintain target air quality. The machine projects cleaner, purified air around the room, evenly and quietly. It purifies all year round and doubles as a fan to cool you in the summer.
The companion Dyson Link App, developed for iOS and Android, will allow users to remotely monitor the inside air quality, even if they are out of the house. Users can stay on top of the air quality inside their homes and set new air quality targets before ‘very poor' levels are reached. They can also use the app to keep track of the air quality history, seeing peak pollution times, such as when they are cleaning or cooking. If auto mode is selected, the machine can then automatically react to the monitored air quality. Working with air quality data analytics company BreezoMeter, Dyson engineers have also made the app able to monitor outdoor air quality as well.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan is available in Canada via the Dyson Website starting today, and will be available in select major retailers later this month. It comes as a tower to sit on the floor and cover larger spaces for $600, or in a smaller desk version for smaller spaces, which can be placed on desks and worktops, for $500. The latter has a tilt function for targeting purified airflow. Both boast an automatic night mode, which will allow the machine to continue to monitor and respond to air quality, but only on the quietest setting, and the LED display dimmed.
