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.

Why You Need a Smart Video Doorbell Right Now

vivint-doorbell-camera-installed-front-door-700x467

You may think that a smart video doorbell is a little too much, but nah it’s exactly what modern families need right now. With home invasion arising, you can stay safe and avoid one with a smart video doorbell. Here’s how it can help you and your family.

It gives you security and convenience

The primary purpose of video doorbells is to keep you safe by knowing who is at the door. Smart doorbells can do this with matching convenience. You can see and talk to your visitor on your smartphone when you’re too lazy (or scared) to go to the door. You can do the same thing even if you’re in the office or out on a vacation too.

Don’t worry, most smart doorbells only have a one-way camera so you can keep your privacy and you don’t give away your location. Other doorbells like the Ring Pro has motion sensors, which when trigerred can capture video in HD.

It makes a great tandem with other smart home devices

This is probably one of the best things about smart video doorbells. They can communicate to your other smart security devices to reinforce home security. Our classic example is the August Doorlock and Video Doorbell. You can open the door for your visitor right on your smartphone when you need to.

Another combo is the smart video doorbell with the front porch light. You can program your doorbell with motion sensor and your smart light through IFTTT or you can get the Zmodo Torch Pro, which is a smart video doorbell and a porch light in one.

It lessens the chances of package theft

Package theft is becoming a major concern for most homeowners, especially during the Holiday season when the gift delivery volume is quite high. With a smart video doorbell that can work with your doorlock (like August), you can keep your packages secure by asking the delivery guy to leave the package inside your house instead of just leaving it at your door.

Smart video doorbells actually offer more than convenience and sassy technology; it’s actually helpful in a real big way.

10 Ways An MBA Can Help Entrepreneurs

Print

It is absolutely true that entrepreneurship can’t be taught to someone, but there are few courses which can help budding entrepreneurs to take their start-ups a level higher, and an MBA is particularly one of them. Magnates like Elon Musk and Michael Bloomberg also completed an MBA degree before they started their journey as entrepreneurs.

A range of benefits are derived from a Master of Business Administration course, especially if you are going to embark on an entrepreneurial journey for the first time. An MBA helps not only with the theoretical wisdom, but you will also learn to build professional relationships and earn the honor of studying at a reputed educational institution.

The Webcaster Gun Slings Hot Glue Webs

jhoo_webcaster_gun

With Labor Day not even passed yet, it might seem a little premature to be talking about Halloween already, but there you have it. The Webcaster Gun will make all your decorating efforts easier, since its primary job is to sling thin spiderweb-like nets wherever you point it. It’s basically a hot glue gun with an air blower underneath the nozzle; as the hot glue comes out, the air blows it into thin strands that stick to any surface since they’re still hot. You can spray up to 1.5 lbs of glue per hour in this fashion and cover your entire house in “spider” webs. The gun itself is $29.99, and 20 sticks of glue are an additional $5.99.

Star Trek Planetary Glassware

istg_st_planetary_glassware_set_grid

There seems to be quite a bit of interest over planetary-themed items, as can be evidenced right here. However, most of the time the planets in question are the ones in our very own solar system. That’s all fine, but what about the planets in other, completely fictional universes? The Star Trek Planetary Glassware celebrates some of the planets encountered in Gene Roddenberry’s tales.

We’ve chosen to highlight several M-class planets: Earth, the capital planet of the United Federation of Planets, home of Starfleet Headquarters, and the location of the main branch of Starfleet Academy; Vulcan, the Vulcan homeworld and a founding member of the United Federation of Planets; Romulus, the homeworld of the Romulans and the capital world of the Romulan Star Empire; and Qo’noS, homeworld of the Klingons and the capital of the Klingon Empire. We also threw in a shot glass for good measure which resembles a Borg Cube, the primary vessel of the Borg Collective

The glasses are sadly not microwave or dishwasher safe, but with a little TLC this set will keep your nerdy self entertained for years to come. It’s $40.

OhGizmo! Review: The G Pen Elite Vaporizer

Elite2

Today we’re going to take a look at the G Pen Elite, a new portable vaporizer made by Grenco Science. The G Pen line of vaporizers is well known among a wide range of people for reasons ranging from their sleek designs to high-profile partnerships with celebrities like Snoop Dogg. However, one thing Grenco hasn’t been known for is creating vaporizers that succeed in true vaporization of dried material.

If you aren’t expecting much from a Grenco produced vaporizer, then you’ll probably be very surprised if you get the chance to try the Elite. This small and elegantly designed vape really blew us away in terms of overall quality compared to our expectations, especially given the price.

There certainly are a few downsides, but overall this is a vaporizer that we expect to be very popular. Let’s take a look at the materials and design that went into this vape, then we’ll go over how it performed when put to the test.

Our Top 3: Best Chromebooks

The best 3 Chromebooks

Chromebooks are a special category of ultrabooks designed with Google’s Chrome OS. Contrary to some assumptions, that does not mean they are produced by Google – there are actually a few different brands that work with Google to produce them – and does not mean they are connected with Android (Chrome OS is really more of an advanced version of the Chrome browser).

What is a Chromebook? A lightweight, slim little laptop that is designed to keep both costs and size small by focusing on cloud-powered activities rather than storage space. That means you need to expect plenty of Google Docs and Dropbox, and less access to traditional software like Microsoft Word.

Still interested? Then be sure to watch the specs carefully: the top Chromebook in 2017 come in an array of different speeds, hard drives, screens, and other features. In many respects shopping for a Chromebook is like looking for any ultrabook…except the prices are much lower, and the hard drive is less important. Pay particular attention to batter life when possible, Here are some of our top picks.
