How to make your home an allergen-free space

We often associate being outdoors with pollution, but the air inside our homes can be full of pollutants, allergens and more. Here’s how to get cleaner air at home

Brought to you by Dyson & Irish Country Magazine.

We spend 90% of our time indoors, yet we often associate “dirty” air with being outdoors near cars or factories. However, the indoors can be just as affected by pollutants. At home in particular, where we spend a large part of our time, there are many ways that VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) can be released into the air. Cosmetics, candles, gas hobs and cleaning products can all make the air dirty, not to mention outside allergens coming in when we open up windows. Carpets, soft furnishings and bedclothes collect dust and pollen, and even paint and dye can omit tiny particles that we breathe in every day.

One solution that ensures air at home is kept cleaner is an air purifier, and Dyson has invested a lot of time, research and money into creating intelligent machines that solve problems and support our wellbeing. From the brand new Dyson Pure Cool Me personal purifying fan designed to purify your personal space, to the Dyson Pure Cool designed to purify a room, there are solutions to fit every home and lifestyle

Perfect match

So, which air purifier is best for your needs?

Personalised purity

The latest Dyson innovation in air purification is the Dyson Pure Cool Me fan, which is designed for more personal use. The technology behind it is amazing, and the features are designed to create a more comfortable personal space.

The Dyson Core Flow technologyTM creates a steady stream of purified air that you can easily control and direct – making it ideal for a bedside locker, desk or countertop. A HEPA filter captures 99.95% of ultrafine particles such as pollen, mould spores and bacteria, and activated carbon absorbs and traps gases, odours and household fumes*.

Those thinking a fan in the bedroom might disrupt sleep need not fear – the Dyson Pure Cool Me is acoustically engineered to be as quiet as possible, and an in-built intelligent light sensor tracks the ambient light and automatically dims or brightens the LCD screen. Plus, it comes with a sleep timer that can be set between 30 minutes and 8 hours. (€349, dyson.ie)

Cleaner air for all the family

The Dyson Pure Cool and Pure Hot + Cool advanced technology is designed to clean the air of an entire room, making it ideal for busy living areas**. Between mealtime smells, the dog’s bed, and things like scented candles, it’s easy to see how air pollutants can build up quickly in an area like this – not to mention the pollen that can travel into the house when a door or window is left open.

The Dyson Pure Cool automatically senses particles and gases, capturing 99.95%* of ultrafine particles, and projects purified air using its clever Air Multiplier™ technology**. Brilliantly, you can see the quality of the air on the LCD panel, and on the Dyson Link app which allows you to remotely schedule and personalise the machine. (€549.99, dyson.ie)
