Wildfire season in the United States and Canada typically runs from August to November. As 2020’s wildfire season unfolds catastrophically throughout the United States, particularly on the West Coast, effective air purifiers are in increasingly high demand. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, a high likelihood that La Nina conditions continue into the winter could further extend the wildfire season, affecting California and other West Coast states significantly.
Air purifiers have long been a trusted method for combating worsening indoor air quality caused by wildfires and outdoor pollution, but not all air purifiers are well equipped to handle the toxic air that wildfires produce, which includes pollutants like smoke and VOCs. Here, we will review Molekule’s latest device, Air Mini+. Equipped with Molekule’s patented Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO) technology, a particulate matter sensor, and an Auto Protect mode, Air Mini+ destroys the widest range of pollutants compared to traditional air purifiers, delivering high-quality air purification to your home or office.
Purify Indoor Air With Breakthrough PECO Technology
All Molekule products use revolutionary, proprietary PECO air purification technology developed by scientists after more than 25 years of thorough research, and Air Mini+ is no exception. This innovative technology works at the molecular level to destroy the widest range of pollutants compared to traditional air purifiers including mold, bacteria, viruses, dander, and many other allergens frequently responsible for poor indoor air quality. Molekule’s PECO technology has been validated and tested by several independent, third-party air quality testing labs.
PECO technology uses photocatalysis that speeds up oxidation, which breaks down pollutants at the molecular level. This means that Molekule’s PECO technology can destroy even microscopic pollutants, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), like formaldehyde, which are commonly produced by wildfires. PECO technology is capable of capturing a range of larger particulate pollutants like dust, as well as destroying gaseous pollutants like smoke and VOCs, without generating any harmful byproducts like ozone. PECO technology has proven to be a trailblazing new solution for dealing with the increase in air pollution that we face today.
A Review of Air Mini+’s Enhanced Tech Features
Air Mini+ is a powerful air purification device with additional features. These enhanced tech features were developed in response to high customer demand and work together to bring users more information about their indoor air quality. One such feature is a particle sensor that detects how much particulate matter is present in the air. A new mode called Auto Protect mode uses the data gathered by the particulate matter sensor to adjust the air purifier’s fan speed automatically, ensuring efficient operation. These new features bring more information, transparency, and accuracy to your home’s indoor air management.
All Molekule devices are app-enabled for Android and iOS, making it easy to control and manage your device right from your phone. Air Mini+ features a modern cylindrical design with a vegan leather handle for easy portability, so you can take your device with you from room to room. Air Mini+ weighs just over seven pounds and is ideal for rooms up to 250 square feet, making it a perfect addition to nurseries, bedrooms, and small offices. Air Mini+ retails at $749 CAD and $499 USD. Portable, stylish, and efficient, Air Mini+ offers air purification like no other device on the market.
