I was pleased as punch when Dyson sent over their new 2-in-1 purifier and fan. Not only is it practical but it looks ultra sleek and is light-weight as well. This time round, we are definitely more prepared for the upcoming haze period.

Two years ago when the haze situation was at it’s peak, we tried to stay indoors as much as possible. We mistakenly assumed that the air in our homes is clean, and was horrified to discover that it is not. In fact, levels of pollutants and allergens indoors can be up to 100 times higher than outdoor levels. Gasp!
I was comforted to know that Dyson Pure Cool can capture up to 99.95% of particles as small as PMO.1, which includes harmful components found in the air during the haze period.

|Dyson Purifier and fan|
Did you know that babies breathe up to four times faster than adults? And that asthma affects nearly 20% of children in Singapore? It is vital to keep our homes safe for our families, especially for children and the elderly. With a built-in sleep timer, it allows for night-long purification.
The last round when the haze hit us, I bought an air purifier as Kate was still a baby. Since then, the bulky machine has been taking up a lot of space in their room. It’s great that the Dyson Pure Cool is streamlined, and also doubles up as a fan. Just to set your expectations right, don’t expect the fan power to be very strong. If you are too far away from it, you won’t be able to feel the breeze even when you turn it up to 10. I see this as an air purifier with the added bonus of doubling up as a fan and not vice versa.
The other plus point is that while most other purifiers have a laborious filter changing and cleaning process, the Dyson filter can be changed in 4 simple steps which takes less than a minute. Brilliant.
Dyson Pure Cool is retailing at $999. Replacement filter at $79. Available in all good electrical and department stores.
