How often do you think about the air quality in your home? I will be honest, it is not really something I have thought about too much until recently.
We all know about pollution and the negative effects it has on pretty much everything? But thats outside right?
Researches say that the air inside your home can be 5 times as polluted as the air outside because obviously the air inside your home does not get circulated as much as the air outside, especially now as it gets colder.
Pretty scary right?
Adding an air purifier is a quick and easy way to make sure the air in your home is clean and safe.
We have the Xiaomi Smart Air Purifier 4 Pro and I have been playing around a little to see just what the air quality is like in our home.
Initially when we set it up and ran it everything looked really good and I felt pretty chuffed with myself but the status of the air in your home or anywhere is constantly changing.
One morning David made breakfast which created some smoke, then Niki put something in the oven and there was a pan inside that had something on and it started burning – more smoke. Then I heard the air purifier start going, I checked my app and this is what the levels where.
HAZARDOUS! How crazy is that?
Fortunately within a few minutes the air purifier had cleaned it and the levels dropped back to normal but it was an eye opener about the impact every day life can have on the quality of our air.
This is generally the results we get during the day when the air purifier is running on Auto.
But I hear you ask, are their other benefits to an airfryer other than just clearing smoke away.
The short answer is yes there are!
- It can help alleviate allergy symptoms. The Xiaomi Smart Air Purifier 4 Pro Filter media can remove “99.97% of airborne particles of 0.3 micrometers in size and traps dust, PM 2.5, pollen, pet dander, smoke and tiny particles”. This means that it keeps your home free from pollen particles, pet hair, dust and other impurities that could aggravate your allergies. One of our neighbours stands outside and smokes in the morning when I get up – it wafts directly into my office and it annoys me so much, since we have had the purifier, I no longer smell the smoke!
- Eliminate harmful indoor chemicals and odours. Think about what you as a family are putting into the air in your home – their is the smoke from cooking (even if you aren’t burning anything.), cleaning products (even the safe ones), deodorant and so many more. Our car is parked right in front of our front door, the fumes from the car definitely come inside the house. We get deliveries creating more pollutants. We have a dog and a bird – all creating dust particles. The Xiaomi Smart Air Purifier 4 Pro zaps them all, leaving the air clean and safe for us.
- Odours are neutralised. Probably one of my best features. Our air purifier has negative air ionisation which means stale-air is eliminated, keeping the house smelling fresh and pleasant.
- Enhances your healthy lifestyle. Over the past few years we have made a lot of changes to improve our lifestyle. Ensuring the air in our home is clean and safe is just another way we are trying to improve the overall health and well-being of our family.
Let’s talk a little bit about the Xiaomi Smart Air Purifier 4 Pro.
Quick Full-room purification
“Xiaomi Smart Air Purifier 4 Pro has a Particle CADR of up to 500m³/h*, and is able to release 8330L* of clean air per minute.: The result of this is clean air throughout your home and it happens in just a few minutes.
We leave the air purifier on Auto Mode and it monitors the air quality and adjusts when needed – generally it is quite but if we cook we can hear it start up and clean the air.
Easy to use
Everything you need to know is on the little display, you can change settings simply and easily using the touch control buttons but you can also use the Mi Home App to control and check.
Long lasting filter.
“The filter, made from large-area high-efficiency filter and large volume high-quality activated carbon, can last 6-12 months.” .
Three-in-one filtration for high-efficiency purification
“The Xiaomi Smart Air Purifier 4 Pro features a three-in-one filter, including a primary filter, the Xiaomi’s High Efficiency Filter and a high-quality activated carbon filter, which all work together to purify your air and keep you healthy.”
Control everything from your app
One of my favourite features is that you can add the purifier to your Mi Home app and control everything anywhere, any time. You can switch it on/off, change the settings and monitor the air quality all from the app.
It is not noisy
You can leave the air purifier on at night thats to the low-noise 33.7dB(A) Night Mode, it will still keep the air clean without waking you up.
The difference between Xiaomi‘s High Efficiency Filter and conventional HEPA Filter
“Combining two filter technologies: Electrostatic charge and mechanical filtration, Xiaomi’s High Efficiency Filter media can remove 99.97% of airborne particles of 0.3 micrometers in size and traps dust, PM 2.5, pollen, pet dander, smoke and tiny particles. Compared to a conventional HEPA filter, Xiaomi’s High Efficiency Filter allows the air purifier to generate less noise and consume less energy by allowing more airflow to pass through the filter all the while keeping the same cleaning efficiency.”
This is not the only Xiaomi Smart product we have and probably not the last. I am all about making my life easier and adding in smart products like this air purifier help to make things a little easier for me and safer for my family.
