Check Out These 5 Air Purifiers If You Want Your Home Smelling Fresh

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) researchers have found that indoor air pollution can be worse than outdoor air pollution in some cases. This is because indoor air doesn’t actually circulate beyond the walls of your home, and this means that particulate and pollutants can build up. In turn, these pollutants can cause a huge variety of health problems.

Air purifiers are so important during sleeping hours, when lung function naturally decreases. This makes airways more susceptible to irritant inflammation.

There are so many brands and types of air purifiers these days, it can be hard to choose which is the best. So Lifehack has curated a list of five air purifiers that we wholeheartedly recommend!

1. The PowerPure AP03 2-in-1 Air Purifier and Humidifier

    The PowerPure AP03 2-in-1 Air Purifier is ideal for someone who wants a HEPA* air purifier for year round air purification but also needs an effective humidifier for the dry months of the year. With a true HEPA filter, this purifier can remove microscopically-small particles in the air, while also boasting a 1.05-gallon water tank to ensure a moist, healthy, and breathable atmosphere. The humidifier is silent, and helps out family members suffering from upper respiratory infection. Heating elements in the home can dry out our home, so the humidifier function can help prevent expensive and time-consuming repairs.

    2. The Dyson Air Purifier Heater & Fan

      This Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link has an amazing triple functionality – purifier, heater with thermostat control in winter, and a cooling fan in summer.

      The air purifier removes 99.97% of allergens, using graphite to get rid of potentially harmful gases. And it does this intelligently, by monitoring the air quality. A thermostat control will automatically adjust temperature as well, turning on the heat or the fan as necessary. Best of all, you can link up the Dyson with your Amazon Echo, and just speak your commands from your desk or kitchen without having to press any buttons at all!

      3. MUJI Air Purifier

        Given that air quality has deteriorated so much in urban and suburban areas (and indoors in general), MUJI has developed an high-tech air purifier, which makes use of “Dual Counter Fan” and “360° Dust and Odor Filter” to generate abundant air flow and eliminate allergens, pollutants and odor. A smart operation mode detects dust particles and can increase air circulation in Jet Cleaning Mode; you can also manually turn on Jet Cleaning Mode and vacuum at the same time for maximum effectiveness.

        Equip your home and office with the air purifier to create a pleasant and healthier living environment!

        You can buy the MUJI at Amazon here for $690. More information about the product can also be found here on the MUJI website.

            Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

            Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

            Does technology have all the answers?

            This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

            Creating technological solutions transparently

            This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

            Technology as the connecting tool

            Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

            “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
