The LG PuriCare AeroTower cleans your air with just a whisper

The constant presence of the pandemic during the past two years has placed an increased focus on indoor air quality. As the temperatures outside drop, why not purify the air while also keeping it warm? LG’s new PuriCare AeroTower is perfect for exactly that. Best of all, you can use it year-round — the air purifier works as a fan and a heater in one. The LG PuriCare AeroTower is scheduled to make its debut at CES 2022.

The AeroTower can turn a full 360-degrees and deliver air in one of three modes: Direct, Wide, and Diffusion.

Direct Mode channels air at a narrow angle through the Air Guard diffuser, while Wide mode provides a broad horizontal breeze. Diffusion Mode provides a vertical, indirect flow — it stops the air in a room from feeling stagnant without blasting you directly. You can choose to add heat to the air flow (on select models of the AeroTower), up to 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

The LG AeroTower is a fan, heater, and air purifier in one.

Perhaps the most noteworthy part of the AeroTower is its volume. At only 23 decibels (literally whisper-quiet, as a whisper is rated at 25 decibels), the AeroTower can fit in a home office without subjecting anyone in your video calls to the constant hum of a fan.

The LG Puricare AeroTower utilizes a multistage HEPA filter to capture up to 99.97 percent of particulates, down to 0.3 microns in size. It also uses LG UVnano technology to destroy any bacteria that might build up on the fan over prolonged use. This filter means that no matter the time of year, whether you’re fighting off pollen or dealing with a dusty HVAC system after six months of no heat, the AeroTower can make it just a little easier to breathe indoors. This is particularly useful if you have pets that shed often.

You can check collected air quality data through the purifier’s LCD screen or through the LG ThinQ mobile app. You can also use the app to change settings on the AeroTower, even if you aren’t at home. The stylish look of the air purifier means it will fit into most any home decor, and the two color options — beige and silver — give you even more options.

Information on availability and other details about the LG PuriCare AeroTower Air Purifying Fan will be available at CES 2022.

What I learned after tracking my home’s air quality for a week
The AirThings View Plus is an indoor air quality monitor.

I set up the AirThings View Plus in my office more than a week ago to measure the indoor air quality and to test whether differing conditions impacted my workflow. I learned several things -- some surprising, some not so much -- about air quality in the home and how it can be improved.

Does everyone need an air quality sensor? Probably not, but if you just don't feel right or you're afraid your air quality is affecting your work performance, a sensor like the View Plus can help.

Molekule adds an Air Score to its Air Pro purifier
molekule enables air score pro

Molekule, one of the leading manufacturers of air purifers, has announced a new feature for its Air Pro purifiers. This new feature, called the Molekule Air Score, provides an easy-to-understand air quality score that shows users the levels of particles and chemicals in the surrounding air.

Molekule states that the score is combined with one of their new sensors in the Air Pro purifiers. That sensor can capture nearby VOCs (volatile organic compounds like aerosol sprays or preservatives), humidity, and CO2 levels. Then, the sensor uses the data from the air to improve the device's 'Auto Protect' mode, which is what the Air Pro uses to adjust fan speeds automatically.
