Keep the air inside your home purified during the haze season with Dyson Pure Cool

It's haze season once again before you know it! Sure, masks can help minimise your exposure to pollution outdoors but indoor air pollution can also be equally, if not more harmful, than outdoor air pollution. Your best bet: Dyson Pure Cool purifying fan, which can help you keep your air inside your home haze-free!

The Dyson Pure Cool purifying fan is an intelligent, two-in-one machine that senses air pollution, captures it, and projects purified air evenly across the room with Air Multiplier technology. It also features sophisticated air quality sensors that allow it to report precise PM2.5, PM10 concentration levels in real-time to the on-board LCD screen, or to the Dyson Link application on your mobile device. It can also sense and report pollutants like Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and Nitrogen Dioxide, a pollutant frequently generated by vehicles. The machine has a Glass HEPA filter, which allows it to capture 99.95% of ultra-fine particles as small as PM0.1, and a dedicated activated carbon filter to remove gases. When set to automatic mode, the machine constantly monitors the air for pollutants and reacts automatically to purify the room without you having to lift your finger. The machine is engineered for real homes and is tested to POLAR test standards, which accounts for factors like filtration efficiency, cleaning performance, and importantly its ability to project and mix air evenly across an environment.
