Clear the air
Your living environment, in which you eat, sleep and work, may contain allergens, bacteria, and even viruses, when airflow is restricted inside, so it’s vital to keep air circulating. Depending on the location of your home, you can choose to open a window to let air in. But for many of us in Hong Kong, we’re almost always near a construction site, and well, it’s too hot most of the year, so windows aren’t always an option. Instead, use an air purifier which helps to get rid of airborne contaminants. British tech brand Dyson offers a great option in the form of their cool purifying tower fan ($3,280), which projects and circulates purified air and has a cooling fan for the summer. They even have a smaller, desk-size version for your home office. Another more entry-level option is from Xiaomi. The Mi Air Purifier 3H ($1,099) is a quiet, space-saving and simple-looking machine which will easily blend in with the rest of your home.
