Types of Air Purifier- Which one do you prefer?

21st October 2020
"If you are someone who suffers from an allergy or has respiratory issues, then do get an air purifier for yourself."

Air Purifiers, as the name suggests, remove harmful dust, volatile organic compounds, dander, mold spores, smoke, dust mites, and pollen from the room sparing your surrounding from any unhealthy particles. If you are someone who suffers from an allergy or has respiratory issues, then do get an air purifier for yourself.

 

Place the air purifier in your room, turn it on, wait for a few hours, and then you get a pollen and molds free room safe for you to breathe. There are different types of air purifiers available for you. Now, note this, not every air purifier is healthy. Some may promise to provide you with a dust-free environment but may end up bestowing respiratory and other health problems. So choose your air purifier wisely. 

HEPA Air Purifiers

HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air which is widely used in worldwide households. It is a standard of filtration designed to strain out microscopic particles. Primarily, the purifier collects the impure or polluted air, then the pollutants are collected by the filters of the purifier. After the air is purified, the pure air is pumped out to the environment and more polluted air is drawn to purify. HEPA air purifiers are the most reliable and safe air purifiers; furthermore, it is widely used throughout the world. In the context of Nepal as well, there are many HEPA air purifiers in the market. And, as far as I'm concerned, it is the best of all. If you want to be healthy and breathe clean air, then do go for the HEPA air purifiers. However, they require a lot of maintenance, and you may have to replace them frequently.

Activated Carbon Air Purifier

Air purifiers with activated carbon technology are best to eliminate the smoke, odors, fumes, and gasses from the room. It is suitable for the ones who are sensitive to odors and natural gas. Most of the activated carbon air purifiers also include HEPA filters to remove air particles from the air. The activated carbon air purifiers are best for removing odors, fumes, gases, chemicals, and smokes; however, they are not suitable if you want to remove dust, pollens, and other airborne particles unless the model has HEPA filters to collect the dust and other airborne particles.

UV Air Purifiers

uv-air-purifiers

As UV rays of the sun damage the skin cells, the UV rays from such purifiers destroy the microbes and particles in the air. Like the HEPA air purifiers, UV air purifiers also collect the air, then using the UV lamp that produces UV-C light, it kills the microbes and bacteria in the air, and then throws the air out into the surrounding. This kind of air purifier help to get rid of the microorganism rather than the non-living organism. They are mostly available in medical settings. If you want to get rid of bacteria, microbes, and fungi, then do go for the UV air purifiers. However, it is debated that the UV air purifiers release ozone which is not healthy for you. But, if used in a specific wavelength, the ozone produced will not be harmful.

Ozone generators

ozone-generator-air-purifier

Ozone air purifiers release ozone while purifying the air. Ozone is a compound formed by three oxygen atoms, often created by chemical reactions between nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). At the ground level, ozone can trigger a variety of health problems, especially for the elderly, asthmatics, and children. This air purifier is in the list to make you aware of its existence and to alert you to avoid any sort of air purifier that releases ozone. The salesmen ensure you that ozone won't harm your health and do you good, which is not the case. The ozone emitted by the ozone air purifiers are harmful to your health and may result in several harmful respiratory diseases. They are not available for purchase and are restricted by several governments throughout the world. However, be cautious of the Ozone generating air purifier.

LG INTRODUCES POWERFUL PORTABLE AIR PURIFIER FOR ENHANCED PEACE OF MIND

7th November 2019
"LG announces the world’s first filter-type portable air purifier designed for use on-the-go"

With clean air a commodity in high demand today, LG Electronics (LG) announces the world’s first filter-type portable air purifier designed for use on-the-go. With an innovate PM1.0 Sensor, the compact and cord-free LG PuriCareTM Mini helps deliver safe, clean air in the car, a baby’s nursery or even one’s office.


 

With LG’s 4-Step Air Filtration System, LG PuriCare Mini can detect and remove 99 per cent particulates as small as 0.3 μm.* The first step involves the PM1.0 Sensor which quickly and accurately detects the quality of the air before the Dual Inverter Motor forcibly draws in the air at 5,000rpm in the second step. In step three, the high-efficiency Total Allergen Removal filter removes particulates in the air and in the final step, the powerful Twin Tornado Dual Fan disperses the clean air far and wide. The LG PuriCare Mini is not only highly efficient, it’s also fast, cleaning 50 per cent of the air inside a car in 10 minutes.**

LG PuriCare Mini can go anywhere the user goes thanks to its small size and lightweight, which make it ideal for use on the go where plug-in models can’t go. Similar in size and weight as a 500-millilitre bottle of water, the wireless portable air purifier freshens the air for up to 8 hours at low speed or 2 hours at the highest setting on battery power alone. And its quiet operation – only 30dB in low setting – allows the LG PuriCare Mini to be used in an enclosed stroller without waking a peacefully sleeping baby.

PuriCare Mini utilizes a durable filter which lasts up to 2,000 hours or six months if used 12 hours a day. The free LG ThinQ app for both Android and iOS devices allows users to monitor the condition of the filter, check the battery status and control their LG PuriCare Mini via Bluetooth with a smartphone or tablet.

“Providing useful technology in a form factor that goes where our customers go – this is what LG PuriCare Mini is all about,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “There is nothing more important than the health of one’s family and LG is committed to using its engineering know-how to deliver innovative solutions.”

LG PuriCare Mini will become available in key markets of Asia throughout the next several weeks into 2019.

LG announces air purifier mask called Puricare Wearable

28th August 2020
"PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier"

Masks have become an integral part of all our lives amid the Covid-19 pandemic. LG, possibly, takes this as an opportunity to introduce PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier that also works as a mask. In fact, this LG product works when you wear it as a mask on your face. This is the first time the brand has announced a product like this one. For the portable wearable air purifier, LG takes cues from its existing lineup of air purifiers which it sells in several markets.

How does it work?

The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier uses a pair of HEPA replaceable filters quite similar to the filters used in the company’s home air purifier products. It also comes paired with battery-powered fans that are claimed to help users breathe. The air purifier mask also includes sensors that detect when a user breathes in or out and adjusts the fans’ speeds accordingly so the user doesn’t face issues in breathing with the mask on.

The company claims that dual fans “allows users to take in clean, filtered air while the patented respiratory sensor detects the cycle and volume of the user’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly.” LG also claims that the “fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.”

LG PuriCare Wearable is said fit snugly on the user’s face and reduce the air leakage around the nose and chin. “The design also makes it possible to wear the unit comfortably for hours on end,” the company claims.

The mask also includes UV-LED lights that kill harmful germs. The LG ThinQ mobile app notifies the user when the filters need to be replaced for peak performance. The app is available on both Android and iOS. LG claims that every component of the mask is replaceable and recyclable.

The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier comes packed with a 820mAh battery that claimed to offer up to eight hours of use in low-power mode. In high-power mode, it can last around two hours.
LG announced the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier back in the month of July. As per a report from The Korea Herald, at the time of announcement the company said it will donate around 2,000 of these devices to a university hospital in Seoul with the aim to help medical staff “amid the protracting COVID-19 pandemic”. Doctors and medical practitioners face difficulties in wearing mask for long hours, LG wants to help them with its portable air purifier mask.

With the wearable air purifier mask LG wants to replace the “inconsistent” homemade masks worn by many and also disposable ones. The company doesn’t highlight if the airpurifier mask has been designed in response to Covid-19 pandemic.


Can you buy it? And when?

LG so far hasn’t revealed release details about the portable air purifier mask but does mention that it will be available in select markets in the fourth quarter. The brand also hasn’t revealed the pricing of the mask. The company has announced to showcase the air purifier mask at IFA 2020.

Which refrigerator would you prefer? Reviews Nepal

29th September 2020
"What kind of refrigerator would you prefer? French door, side-by-side, top-freezer, or bottom-freezer?"

Refrigerators can be of all shapes, sizes, and features. From a single door refrigerator to multiple door refrigerators and smudge-free refrigerators, one can find abundant forms of the refrigerator in different categories. There is a significant number of refrigerators that differ in the type and positioning of their freezer. Likewise, there are refrigerators that differ in the material of the exteriors; as some are made up of stainless steel, and some are made smudge-free. Some are for commercial purposes whilst some are to store your beverages and wine. Besides these, feature-wise there are refrigerators that come with child lock, with wheels, and even with door alarms for security. 

Mostly, the refrigerators are differentiated by the freezer and their positioning

French door refrigerators

french-door-refrigerator

French door refrigerators are the biggest and widest amongst all. They are also gaining much popularity. As the refrigerator is wide, you can locate and find your food easily without wasting the coldness of your refrigerator. They also have wider shelves, bigger door bins, and deep drawer freezers. You can store foods at the doors; so, you won't have to bother digging out all the foods searching for your cheese. Just open the door and there you have all the food at just one glance.

Bottom freezer refrigerators

bottom-freezer

The bottom-freezer refrigerators have a freezer with drawers rather than shelves at the bottom. The bottom freezer refrigerator is quite popular, even though a bit pricy compared to others. The bottom freezer refrigerator gives some extra space to your refrigerator and freezer. As the refrigerator is above i.e. on the eye level, you can easily find the food or ingredients you're searching for. This style of refrigerator also comes with some extra features like built-in ice machines and water dispensers. 

Side by side refrigerators

side-by-side-refrigerator

Side-by-side refrigerators has a vertical freezer and refrigerator that stand beside each other. With the side-by-side refrigerator, you won't have to bend all the way down to get your frozen foods. The side-by-side refrigerator is slim and requires a small door swing space. Different models of side by side refrigerator with different space allocated for freezer and refrigerators are available. Some have smaller space for freezer than refrigerators while some have equal space. Know your requirement and buy one of your choices. The price of the side-by-side refrigerator is also quite low compared to its design and features.

Top freezer refrigerators

top-freezer-refrigerator

Most of the top freezer refrigerators are small in size and are suitable for small families or for the ones that live alone. As you already know from the name, the freezer is in the top due to which the height of the refrigerator itself is not much high. You may have to miss out on many advanced features like cold water dispenser on the door and all if you have a top freezer. Nevertheless, its the best option to go after if you are tight on budget or have a small house. Moreover, they are energy efficient as they are small and will be fit if your kitchen is small and cozy. 

Freezerless refrigerators

freezerless-refrigerator

Freezerless, as you may perceive, don't have freezers in them. They are relatively smaller than all other refrigerators on the list and also are the cheapest amongst all. Besides, they go light on energy consumption; consequently, your electricity bill will also be light-weighted. Mostly, people who tend to do grocery shopping regularly or who wish to have different refrigerators for frozen foods and normal foods, buy the freezer-less refrigerator. Moreover, there are different designs and models of freezer-less refrigerator available. But if you are a slacker, don't go for the freezer-less refrigerator even in your dreams.

Mini refrigerators

mini-fridge

The mini-refrigerators are the smallest in their size and often are used in dorms or by the people who live far away from their parents. Not just in the dorm or hostels, mini-refrigerators can come in handy as extra storage of the foods and beverages. Moreover, for the ones who cannot afford a bigger refrigerator or are tight on a budget can also enjoy the cheap mini-refrigerators for storing the foods and beverages. You can keep certain foods that you don't want to damage.
