Clearing the Air

It’s almost hard to believe that the first day of Fall will be on September 22nd, which of course also symbolizes the official end of summer. Which isn’t really a bummer, as we turn our attention to the beautiful leaves changing colors and pumpkin everything! Another thing about Fall, the weather starts to get a little chillier.

As the weather gets colder we find ourselves indoors more. Being inside means that allergens, pet dander and odors are inside with us.

So, how do we “clear the air”?

I have had the pleasure of being introduced to a company called Winix

last year at an event sponsored by MomsMeet (www.momsmeet.com).

They have such remarkable air purifiers. Why do I say that? They don’t have just one model. They have various models to chose from ranging in sizes and features.

One model I’ve been “eyeing ” is the NK-105. I like its sleek design, and it’s not too big that it would stick out like a sore thumb or take up too much room in the room.

I did do some research because you want to make sure that it does the job and not just look cute in a corner.

On their website (www.winixamerica.com) it lists all the usual specifications such as height and weight. It’s the features that got me. They don’t just have aa air filter like the others. From what I’ve learned they incorporated a four stage cleaning system. And yes, there is a filter, but it is a 99.97% true HEPA filter. It is also a 360(degree) all in one filter that has a hair collecting filter. When in combination with a coated DeOdorization Carbon filter it controls pet dander and odor the most.

But what about the dust and tiny stuff in the air? They’ve got what they call Plasmawave to handle all of that.

Check out what happens to the air going through the unit.

As cool as that looks, I’ll admit there was a feature that made me feel like this was a product I could recommend. Like so many other things… they have an app!

Yes, Wi-Fi enabled!! In a time of smartphones, it helps me be smart with the air in my house.

This is what the app would look like when you search for it

Here are a few features in the app:

I love that I can check the air quality in the room before even going in it.

I can turn it on or off when needed, or set it on a schedule.

This to me is just great information to have and help me gauge times in the month where we might have needed the purifier on High or Low.

What do you think? Need some more information or maybe a different size? Go to: http://www.winixamerica.com you’re sure to find one that fits your lifestyle!!
