The events of the past couple of years have made one thing crystal clear — air quality matters. Between those ever-feared germs and the fires out west, air has become a major global focus. Then there are the (quaint-by-comparison) concerns of the Before Times, like hay fever season — now well underway — and indoor pollution from cleaning compounds. Cut to: the Pure Air Purifier by Rowenta. It catches nasty particles — protecting you and your family from all manner of indoor trouble — and sends out fresh, filtered air. And guess what — right now it's on sale at Nordstrom for 60 percent off, down from $365 to just $146!
The features on this purifier go above and beyond. It has not one, but four levels of filtration that filter up to 99.99%* of allergens and fine particles. The Pre-filter catches hair and dust; the Active Carbon filter gets smoke, odor and VOCs; the Allergy+ filter catches fine particles, pollen, animal allergens, dust mites, mold, bacteria and viruses; and the patented NanoCaptur filter catches and destroys harmful formaldehyde— bet you didn't know you were breathing that in on the daily. And it does all of that in six minutes!
One sneezy reviewer extolls the many virtues of this sleek model: "As a year-round allergy sufferer, I need an air purifier to remove pollen and other allergens from the air. Since putting the Rowenta air purifier in my office, I have noticed that I can breath better and do not sneeze as frequently. The carbon filter helps with odors, especially so the scents from the kitchen don't stay trapped in my office. The unit runs quietly, with only a minimal amount of white noise that is not intrusive at all. The filters are easy to change. Overall, the machine is easy to operate and does exactly what I need it to do, which is provide me with some allergy relief."
Allergens, of course, are not the only potential trouble in the air. "I got this because of the insane forest fires in California every summer," writes a west-coast shopper. "It allows us to keep our children safe and purify the air so there are no toxins or dust or ash in our house. So far it has done a good job...."
The Pure Air Purifier by Rowenta has particle sensors that detect air impurities and adapt filtration speed accordingly. It's not only quiet, but it's also smart, adjusting its settings depending on the hour. This machine works as hard as you do during the day. When the sun goes down, it kicks into quiet but efficient mode, lowering its lights like a romantic dimmer switch, letting you sleep while keeping dust mites away from your bedding. It also has a child lock, auto shut off, delay setting, and an indicator light so you can see just how clean the air has become. This is the Cadillac of purifiers and Nordstrom has it for the lowest price anywhere on the internet, at only $146. That's 60 percent off the retail price, folks.
This reviewer sings its praises, "...I was blown away with how cool it is. There are 4 different settings, the air filter is amazing quality, it is remarkably quiet, very light, and even tells you via colored the lights the air quality in your room. My favorite part is a small detail to some, but you can dim or even turn off the lights on the unit! So the little lights won’t bother you while you sleep or watch tv!"
Reviewers are touting it's easy set up, "I have had a few purifiers in the past and this one was the most simple I've had yet to set up and get going! It is so quiet that I forget it's running half the time! The fact that I only have to clean the outer layer of the filter every 2 months and replace the main one once a year is a game-changer!"
It's also light-weight with a built in handle, for easy storage. Other retailers are selling this model for upwards of 300 bucks, so what are you waiting for? Grab yours from Nordstrom now, before they're gone with the wind.
