If you are wondering how the pungent-smelling colourless gas 'Formaldehyde', which is essentially the simplest aldehyde, enters your home indoors, it is mostly produced by building materials, smoking, household products, fuel-burning appliances like gas stoves, etc. It is also the most common type of air pollutant that releases in indoors and outdoors during carpentry from furniture products (veneer and lamination work). What worse is the off-gassing duration of Formaldehyde (CH2O) as the gas can pollute an indoor space for about two years. If you have recently remodelled your home, formaldehyde levels will usually drop to 48% in one year and will fall to normal levels (older homes) in about two years.

It is worth mentioning that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mentions that exposure to formaldehyde may cause leukaemia, particularly myeloid leukaemia, in humans and can also lead to several health effects such as watery eyes, burning sensations of the eyes, nose, and throat, coughing, wheezing, nausea, skin irritation, etc.

How Dyson Hot+Cool Air Purifier Destroys Formaldehyde?

Dyson's in-house chemist team has devised a process- 'Cryptomic Technology' to capture and destroy the ultrafine particles of the said aldehyde. Lasers measure and detect ultrafine particles and a separate sensor detects the amount of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as formaldehyde, benzene, and Nitrogen Dioxide. A third sensor measures relative humidity and temperature. A catalytic coating, with the same structure as the Cryptomelane mineral with billions of atom-sized tunnels, trap and destroy formaldehyde, breaking it down into tiny amounts of water and CO2.

Price, Warranty And Availability

The new Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Cryptomic air purifier and heater is priced at Rs. 61 900.00 and will be available in White/Gold color. It will come with 2-year parts and labour warranty and will be available on Dyson.in, across the 6 Dyson stores in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai; and on Amazon, Flipkart, and in select Croma stores.
