We have all become aware of the global air pollution crisis and the impact it can have on our health and the environment. But what about the air quality in our own homes, where we spend up to 90% of our time?
As we settle down in our homes, especially during lockdowns, many routine activities cause indoor pollution. If the weather is bad, windows remain shut, the heating is turned up and fires or stoves are lit. We cook our meals and clean our homes, possibly more than ever before in this era of Covid-19.
Many of us would be surprised to learn that everyday items in our homes can dry out the air and release pollutants such as pollen, cooking fumes and house dust. There are also odors and allergens in the air. As a result, air quality can be worse indoors than outdoors and subsequently have a detrimental effect on our health and wellbeing.
Approximately one in ten British people use wood burning stoves in the home. These, as well as open fires or burning candles, can release many different pollutants. Smoke itself is formed of unburned carbon particles which are released into the air. Also, candles and scented products like reed diffusers can emit volatile organic compounds into the air. All of these are forms of gas pollution.
As we can’t simply stop our cooking, cleaning and heating routines, it is important that we take steps to reduce our pollution exposure within our own homes.
Dyson are well known for their filtration technologies and more recently have concentrated on air quality and purification. They offer a range of advanced purifiers that remove gases and odors and capture 99.97% of allergens and pollutants as small as 0.3 microns.
Intelligent sensors in Dyson products automatically detect airborne particles and gases, as well as temperature and humidity levels and manage your air quality. Some models expose every drop of water to an ultraviolet light which kills 99.9% of bacteria, therefore humidifying your environment hygienically. This maintains the correct level of moisture in your air for a healthier, more comfortable environment. Dyson purifiers circulate purified, humidified air throughout the room, so you don't breathe stale air.
Within the range of Dyson models you can benefit from features such as air purification, cooling, heating and humidifying.
