It was night of December 5th, a fire started to breakout on the hills of Bel Air, near Skirball Center. It grew and spread quickly with aid of gusty wind. People driving on the 405 freeway took video footage that have since gone viral, it looked like Hell have opened up and ready to engulf everything near it. It was a horrific sight for all that have seen it. By the morning of Wednesday December 6, we were on evacuation watch and the entire West Los Angeles is under severe Air Quality alert from all the smoke and ashes. Cars parked outside had a thick layer of ash over night. I started to get very worried because my son has Asthma and this type of air quality would mean it would trigger his breathing problem.
Thankfully, I just got two Dyson Air Purifiers and fired them both up night and day trying to keep at least the inside of the house clean. Previously I have heard so many good things about these purifiers, just google Dyson air purifier review and you will see countless rave reviews and testimonials from people who suffer from chronic respiratory ailments. So I was very happy when Dyson sent me two of these to try out. I put the larger Pure Cool Air Purifier in the living room and the smaller Pure Hot+Cool Link Purifier in my son’s bedroom and set them to auto detect. You will see after the jump how even with the purifier on, there were moments when the air quality went down.
The Pure Cool Air Purifier in the living room only blows cool air, while the Pure Hot+Cool Link Purifier in the bedroom has the option to both cool down and heat up the space. Both machine looks incredibly minimal and sleek in a nickle color finish (you can color coordinate according to your room decor scheme) and very safe with children and animals. My kids loves to touch everything and these didn’t seem to pose any potential harm or danger. What I love about these new generation purifier the most is that they are WiFi connected and can be linked and operated remotely via smart phones and smart devices such as Google Home and Alexia.
As you can see, once I download the Dyson Home Link app, I am able to register both purifier devices and view each on my iPhone connected via our Home Wifi. And anytime I am outside of the house but have wifi connection, I can connect and see the quality, temperature and humidity of each space and control accordingly. I can turn it on, adjust the fan speed, set timer all within the ease of my app. I can check the temperature of my son’s room at night and decide whether to turn up the heat or cool down the room. It is very user friendly and easy to use.
From the screenshot of my app diagnostics above, you can see that because we were away in Las Vegas on Monday, 12/4 the air quality is yellow, we didn’t have the machines running. On Tuesday and Wednesday, at certain hours when the machine is off from the auto mode, the air pollutant level went up to yellow and came back down when the purifiers are turned back on again. My son did not have a single asthma flare up during the entire time of this fire and I cannot think of anything else besides the effectiveness of our new Dyson Cool Link Purifiers hard at work. Right now, Dyson is having a flash sale, you can get one of these purifiers at a very steep discounted price. For those who has family members that have poor respiratory system, I highly recommend having at least one of these machines at home.
