Got pets and kids? Check Out These 3 Air Purifiers to Keep Your Home’s Air Clean

Top Air Purifiers

An air purifier does what your air conditioning and vacuuming can’t do – take the extra step to remove all possible particles from the air in your house. Whether your vacuum cleaner is kicking up a little bit too much dust from your carpet, or you need to get rid of as many allergens as possible for an asthma condition, these beauties can help out. If you’re looking for the top air purifiers of 2017, then we’ve got the list you need to see!

These standalone models (as opposed to units installed in your HVAC system) tend to work best when placed in a large living room or bedroom where they have access to the most air. We tend to prefer “mechanical” air purifiers, which use physical filters to “strain” the air and remove the smallest particles possible. Of course, that’s only a small part of the story, so let’s take a look at our top picks and the features that set them apart.

Honeywell HPA300 – $194

Top Air Purifiers

Honeywell’s slim and affordable model is an excellent air filtration device for those who have never had a purifier before and want to try one out. Not only is the price reasonable, but it comes with several different filtration options which can clean the air in a room up to 5 times each hour. In addition to HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filtration to remove even extra-small particles, this model also has a carbon filter, which can help remove annoying smells. It comes with plenty of different modes and timers too, allowing you to set the speed and schedule when the air purifiers will come on so you don’t have to remember every single day.

Perhaps best of all, the unit also provide on-screen filter replacement reminders. Since a dirty filter will both slow down a purifier and ruin its primary objective, these replacement reminders are important – and useful!

Note: Always pay close attention to the size ratings for models like these. This Honeywell is designed for rooms around 465 square feet, a great size for a bedroom or a similar space. However, keep in mind that air purifiers do make a little noise (thankfully, these newer models are pretty quiet) so make sure you can sleep with one in the room.

HealthMate Standard HM-400 – $539

Here’s a big jump in price for a much larger, more powerful air purifier, designed for buyers who know what they’re doing and want a system that can handle air throughout the house more easily…as long as it fits in the budget.

This filter is also an excellent pick for the health conscious. It has four different stages, which doesn’t make it the fastest purifier around, but certainly one of the most thorough for those who really need certain particles gone. The first two stages remove large and medium-sized particles as a warm up. The third stage is a 15-pound filter of activated carbon and zeolite to take care of odors – a very effective way of removing smoke or cooking smells from an area. The fourth stage is a certified HEPA filter that removes most particles that are larger than 0.3 microns for a final cleaning.

With 360-degree intake, you’ll want to keep this model away from walls to increase its efficiency. It has three speed settings based on your goals, but all three are very effective. In fact, this model can make an excellent commercial option for businesses or contractors if necessary.

Coway AP-1512HH – $230

This Coway model has a bit of a different design for those who like purifiers with more technology and eco-saving capabilities. It, too, has four stages of filtration, although they are different from the HealthMate stages: There’s a pre-filter, a carbon filter, a true HEPA filter, and then a “vital ION” filter. That ion filter is an interesting addition: It uses an ionized plate to attract particles – much like static – and trap them on the surface, an extra type of filtration that works well for larger, non-organic particles.

There’s also Energy Star features that can help you save money – and the time you may spend fiddling with settings. The auto mode is particularly useful, since it adjusts air flow speed based on how many particles the unit is pulling out of the air. If the unit goes for 30 minutes without detecting many particles, then it will shut off to conserve energy.

Plush Tardigrades Will Teach Your Kids About Nature’s Strangest Creature

tardigrade-plushie-1

Tardigrades are fascinating microscopic creatures with some properties that baffle most scientists. Also known as ‘water bears’, “they can survive temperatures ranging from near absolute zero (?458 °F) up to 300 °F, withstand pressures 6 times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches or radiation hundreds of times higher than what’s lethal for humans, and even survive in the vacuum of outer space. They can also survive without food and water for over 30 years.” They even survive the vacuum of space. So it sort of makes sense that a creature as cool as these would be made into a plushie, because once you give it to your kid they’ll inevitably ask what the heck it is and you’ll have an opportunity to educate them on a bunch of sciencey topics. They’re as anatomically correct as can be, albeit 1,000 larger than their real life counterparts. They cost 4,104 Yen, or roughly $36USD.

Archaeology Soap Will Get Your Kids Clean, Hopefully Thinking About Science

arch-soap-1

Getting kids to take their showers, and getting them to pay attention to sciencey stuff can be two of most common challenges of raising them. At least, we think so… we have no idea about raising kids. But this Archaeology Soap can at least add a bit of a twist to a child’s normal bath time routine. It features three layers, the bottommost containing pumice stone, and the middle one bentonite. More importantly, each soap has two plastic dinosaurs embedded, for your child to discover as he gets clean. It might spark a conversation, which is all you should need to steer his young impressionable mind towards loftier interests than just playing Pokemon, or whatever it is kids play these days. It’s $17 from Thinkgeek.

The Hauck NERF Battle Racer Is The One Toy We Wish Existed When We Were Kids

hauck_nerf_battle_racer_1

Man… kids these days have it good. Back when I was a child, I was lucky to play with slap bracelets, shitty plastic trikes, and Pogo Balls (remember those? No? Watch this!). But the Hauck NERF Battle Racer would have made my little head explode had I been given a chance to ride it as a kid. It features placeholders for up to four Blasters and a bunch of darts, “sporty 3 point steering wheel”, and a handbrake, so your little one can roam the hallways wreaking havoc on his foes. Of course, you’ll have to pay to the tune of $300 for this, and that’s not including Blasters or darts. But hey, at least your child has the option. Available starting today.

Torch Router Helps Parents Manage Their Kids’ Browsing Habits

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 12.36.53 AM

With the multitude of devices in most homes these days, it’s a bit of a hassle keeping track of who does what online. But the Torch Router can help conscientious parents keep tabs on their kids habits, as well as limit what they do online.

It’s easy-to-use interface lets you see what sites every device on your network is visiting, how much data they’re using, and how much time they’re spending online. You can set limits on each device’s usage, suspend their ability to connect to the Internet (without affecting the other devices on your network), and block specific sites on a per-device basis

Other features include the ability to pause the Internet altogether during dinner time or bedtime, and is compatible with most home gizmos and gadgets such as iPad, Xbox, Roku, Apple TV, Sonos, and Nest. A detailed report can break time spent online into categories such as social media, education and gaming, so you have a better grasp of your children’s browsing habits. And since this is all done at the router level, you know they won’t be able to erase their history before you get to it.

It’ll cost $200 once it hits retail, but the Kickstarter early-birds can get it for half that price… if the campaign funds. Expect a March 2016 delivery if that happens.
