Dyson Purecool Purifying Fan
Did you know that air pollution indoors can be up to 5x worse than outdoors? Pollutants can get trapped inside and circulation of airflow can become compromised, causing health problems like asthma to you and your family members.
The new Dyson Purecool is a fan that also purifies and automatically removes gases and 99.95% of microscopic allergens and pollutants as small as .01 microns in the air. Its dense HEPA filter captures ultrafine particles, allergens and gases so you and your family can breathe cleaner air. It draws in air from all angles and passes it through the filter before projecting it into the annual loop to deliver cool, purified air. And so you know it's working, a mobile phone app allows you to monitor air quality.
The Dyson Purecool is available at Dyson at The Podium Mall, Ortigas, Pasig, and other Dyson branches.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
