Meet the Airocide air purifier, domestic air cleaners do not come much more fancy than this. The Airocide uses NASA/ISS technology to rid your air of dust, bacteria, pollen, mold and pet dander.
How does it work?
“A light inside activates a photocatalytic reaction on glass rings coated with titanium dioxide. Particles and spores including dust, bacteria, pollen, mold, and pet dander bond to the glass, then vaporize.”
Vaporizing sounds good, especially if it means no more changing or cleaning of filters. You will, however, need to change the reaction chamber once a year, and it will set you back $99.
The price tag will make many people balk, but for many folks like me whose seasonal allergy symptoms lie in the high-extreme range, the possibility of cleaner air is worthy of consideration. Seriously, imagine the worst cold in your life with occasional bouts of fever, itchy throat and itchy eyes… for two months out of every year. That is what Japanese cedar pollen does to me… and living in the countryside under mountains covered with the things can make it pretty tough going. Seriously, any work that I get done in those months is down to sheer force of will, and fistfuls of antihistamines.
