Dyson launches health-boosting humidifier
Dyson has introduced its first humidifier, which the Malmesbury-based company claims can relieve the symptoms associated with breathing in dry, winter air, such as chapped lips, dehydrated skin, blocked sinuses and allergies.
The appliance, launched today in Japan, uses Air Multiplier™ technology for even distribution of air and Dyson’s own Ultraviolet cleansing technology to kill 99.9% of bacteria in the water before it enters the room. It helps keep households healthy in the winter, while doubling up as a cooling fan for the summer months.
Using Intelligent Climate Control, the unit is able to measure both the temperature and the moisture in the air to create a comfortable, hygienic environment. A piezoelectric transducer in the base vibrates up to 1.7 million times a second, breaking the water down into microscopic particles which are drawn up through the loop amplifier and projected through the air using Air Multiplier™ technology.
According to Dyson, existing humidifiers can be unhygienic. As they don’t treat the water, bacteria in the tank can be transmitted directly into the room and inhaled. Many also don’t distribute humidified air evenly around the room, so users don’t feel the benefit.
“Humidifiers are a way to create a more hygienic environment at home. Using patented UV light technology our humidifier kills 99.9% of bacteria in the machine before projecting hydrated mist evenly throughout the room,” said James Dyson.
The unit cost over £37.5 million to develop will be available in the UK in March 2015.
