Last November, I got a phone call from the doctor in my daughters’ school. She asked me to pick up my daughter (I won’t identify which one, to respect her privacy) because she was wheezing and having difficulty breathing. We had been warned by the pediatrician that she could develop asthma, there were already telling signs but it was too soon to diagnose. I quickly went to the school and brought her medication. We have been on asthma alert ever since.
Any parent of a child with asthma or severe allergies can tell you that we do whatever we can to prevent episodes and attacks. The most common intervention is to get rid of dust. This involves constant cleaning of your home environment. But there are so many allergens that are invisible to the eye. These can aggravate allergies or worse, can even enter your bloodstream.
Last Christmas, I received the Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan. As the name suggests it is a fan and air purifier in one. This is the first Dyson product in our home. And I can’t tell you enough how excited I am to finally own a Dyson – their products are not just technological breakthroughs, but also major triumphs in design.
I just love that the Dyson Pure Cool Link automatically removes 99.95% of indoor allergens and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns from the air. Just to give you an idea of what 0.1 microns means – these are particles that are 1,000 times smaller than a single strand of human hair. These particles are so small it can penetrate the bloodstream and cause respiratory diseases.
The Pure Cool Link is a well-designed vertical bladeless fan with a sleek cylindrical air purifier at the base. It has a small footprint – not bulky at all. Its sleek design goes well with any style of interiors. We’ve seen them usually in new, modern homes. But as you will see, it looks great even beside our antiques and tropical furniture.
The remote control has the simplest and easiest buttons. Nothing frustrates me more than a remote control that I don’t understand. With the Pure Cool Link, you simply turn on the power button and control the strength and circulation. It has 10 airflow settings and an automatic night-time mode for the lightest sleepers.
My tiny desk in our bedroom. Yes I have succumbed to working from the bedroom. But we will change this in 2017. I believe the bedroom should be just for resting. The Dyson Pure Cool Link has such a small footprint that it can stand anywhere a letter sized paper can fit.
This uses a Dyson 360 Glass HEPA filter. It has a layer of activated carbon granules that captures odours and harmful toxins like paint fumes. The Glass HEPA filter is the reason it can stop even 0.1 microns of pollutants, as it has borosilicate fibres that are densely compacted and woven together. The filter lasts one year if you use the machine 12 hours a day.
My kids are crazy into art and books. This afternoon I kept the Pure Cool Link on in the family room, so when they come home from school, the air is purified. The sensors inside the machine detects changes in home conditions. So every time I move it to a different location, it analyzes the air quality first, then cleans it.
Even scented candles, anti-perspirant, and household cleansers can contribute to poor air quality. We don’t have furry pets, but for those who do, the Dyson Pure Cool Link can get rid of pet dander to prevent allergies on humans.
