Air Purifiers, a Scam?
There is a growing popularity of air purifiers with Wi-Fi capabilities among consumers. This can be ascertained to the extra level of convenience provided when using a smartphone to control the various functions of an air purifier and also view the properties of air. I should also mention that air purifiers efficiency have been questioned by one of the renowned blogs in product reviewing as they taken down a video about air purifiers for the reason that air purifiers can’t really do a lot of what it claims to do, like HEPA filters don’t capture airborne viruses.
The quality of indoor air can be often significantly worse than outdoor air quality. This is attributed to the fact that the outdoors environment is continuously being purified by plants, the wind and the sun’s UV rays. On the other hand, the indoors environment remains stationary and polluted especially in spaces that are well insulated and less ventilated.
The air inside an enclosed environment may contain various allergens and contaminants. An air purifier, as a household technology, is designed to filter out the toxicity in the air reducing the risks to your health and well-being. The Wi-Fi capability allows for automatic control of the device and checking for filters replacement.
Another household technology is Vacuum sealers. These devices use manual or automatic operations to extract air from packaged food prior to sealing. Vacuum sealing slows down the deterioration process caused by aerobic bacterial growth, thus extends the shelf life of food items.
Vacuum sealer can also be used for several cooking applications such as flash pickling and sous vide. There are three main types of vacuum sealers: handheld valve sealers, external vacuum sealers, and chamber vacuum sealers.
The Handheld vacuum sealer sucks out air through a valve on special zip-top bags. The external vacuum sealer uses vacuum pump to suck out air directly out of the opening of a bag with its lip placed into a narrow chamber over the seal bar. The chamber vacuum sealer also uses vacuum pump to suck the air out of the chamber that houses a bag with its lip positioned over the seal bar.
Another household technology is the Cooling fan, which is often used as an alternative to an air conditioner in terms of costs, space and energy efficiency. These circulating fans include ceiling fans, floor fans, table fans, and fans mounted to poles or walls. Even in the presence of natural ventilation or air conditioning, the wind chill effect they create can improve the thermal comfort of a house.
When purchasing a cooling fan, you need to take into consideration its portability, sturdiness, the size of the room it will be used and the quietness of operation. Ceiling fans are considered to be the most effective cooling fans as they are able to circulate the air in a room to create a draft throughout the room. Window fans are the second option and are best used in windows facing away from the prevailing wind and exhausting hot air from your home.
