If there's anything the pandemic has taught us, it's that there's nothing more important than building your ideal home. Lavish adornments and matching drapes aside, the main priority should be your utmost comfort. Whether that should fall under investing in silk sheets or a good office chair, the home should be a place where you could feel at complete ease. Especially if we're talking being cooped up in isolation — i.e. during the circuit breaker. Which is where Dyson's latest product comes in: with its latest air purifier generation, the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde.

If you're prone to irritated eyes or a runny nose in your home, chances are, the air around you is probably to blame. Most of the time, dust mites and other micro-organisms can affect your respiratory system and general well-being — especially if you're prone to allergies.

Made with a new solid-state formaldehyde sensing technology, the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde. is designed to capture and remove allergens and ultrafine dust in the air and destroy dangerously volatile organic compounds (VOCs) — including formaldehyde — that may potentially be harmful to our overall well-being. Typically released by wooden products and furniture, formaldehyde is a colourless gas that comes from formaldehyde-based resins like fibreboard and plywood, insulating materials and DIY products like paint, varnishes, wallpaper and household cleaning products.

Dyson avoided using gel-based formaldehyde sensors that are often found in many of their competitors' purifier, which can deteriorate over time and usually confuse formaldehyde with other VOC pollution. Instead, the company developed a new, solid-state formaldehyde sensor that works alongside the unique Dyson algorithm to isolate formaldehyde from other VOCs, which are detected by a separate dedicated sensor.

"We have developed a purifier which senses particulate matter and VOCs, working to capture them, destroying formaldehyde for a lifetime," says Dyson's Founder and Chief Engineer, James Dyson.

This generation of air purifier also boasts a fully sealed HEPA 13 standard filtration system while with a wider airflow path just so the sound output can be reduced by 20% at the fan's maximum speed setting. A silent killer, literally. In addition, using the Dyson Air Multiplier Technology, this air purifier can project the purified air to every corner of the room. At the same time, the auto mode allows the machine to maintain the air quality levels and preferred temperature. If you're too fussed to use the Dyson Link App to toggle the controls, simply call out to any of your existing home assistant like Alexa, Siri, or Google Home, all of which are compatible with the device.

The Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is available at $999. For more information, click here
