Introducing the Molekule air purifier. This is no ordinary air purifier. This is one equipped with molecular technology and built to destroy the most harmful indoor air pollutants leaving you “feeling refreshed, clear-headed and ready to tackle the day.”
Molekule’s company mission statement is as follows: “to eliminate indoor air pollution, in every home, for everyone.” Some would consider this a rather lofty goal, but after 20 years of research and product development, Molekule has created an air purifier that puts traditional HEPA filtered purifiers to shame. What sets this purifier apart? New technology.
Patented Filter Technology
For one, the Molekule claims to not just capture indoor air pollutants but also eliminate them with a scientific approach to clean air. Able to kill microscopic pollutants like mold, gaseous chemicals, bacteria, and viruses with its patented filter, the Molekule completely replaces the air in a 600 square foot room (large living room) two times an hour. It does this with its photo electrochemical oxidation (PECO) patented technology. In other words, their filter works at a molecular level to eliminate indoor air pollution. According to Co-Founder and Chief Scientist Dr. Yogi Goswami, “we use innovative technology that uses free radicals – the same radicals used to kill cancer cells – to oxidize pollutants.” The end result: PECO is able to destroy pollutants 1,000 times smaller than traditional HEPA filters (0.1 nanometers v. 300 nanometers).
Kills Most Harmful Pollutants
This high-tech air purifier was patented for the sole purpose of fighting the most harmful air pollutants. Not just dust or pet dander, but the one’s that pack a punch: viruses, bacteria, mold. Not convinced? The company wants you to check out its lab reports and product trials. You can see the results by clicking here. Completely transparent about the Molekule’s purification effectiveness, independent lab studies have shown 3.9 million E. Coli completely eliminated on a single pass through a Molekule system.
With the EPA estimating that our indoor air is 5x’s more polluted than our outdoor air, this product is a no-brainer. A testament to the Molekule’s effectiveness: the second batch is completely sold out. If you want one, better jump on their website and get on the waiting list.
Puts Traditional Air Purifiers to Shame
When a company is willing to break down the science of their product and attaches white papers on their website showcasing its studies, consumer confidence is born. At the heart of their groundbreaking technology is Molekule’s non-particle coated filter. Activated by light, the filter disassembled and converts pollutants into harmless elements that are essentially meant to be in the air. Unlike traditional air filters that trap and then spit the pollutants back into the air (especially if you haven’t replaced the filter in a while), the Molekule eliminates pollutants at the microscopic level.
With close to 90% of our time indoors, according to the EPA, relying on air filter that is specifically engineered to kill harmful pollutants is a must-have. It’s working on your behalf while you sleep and the only inconvenience, replacing a filter every three months. Oh, and by the way, the Molekule uses smart technology to alert you when the filter needs replacing. Just download the app to your smartphone.
Where Form Meets Function
So there’s a catch, right? The Molekule resembles an HVAC monstrosity sounding like a commercial AC blasting away during a mid-August heat wave? Not even close. Designed specifically to be unobtrusive, quiet and aesthetically pleasing, the Molekule has a clean design and is energy efficient. With its natural leather handle and machine aluminum finish, this will fit into any home without having it compromise your Feng Shui.
The Molekule is going to “filter” its way to the top and will be the future of air purifiers. Already iOS and Android compatible, the Molekule can be controlled by a smartphone and will alert you when it’s time to replace its filter. With the hopes of expanding its technology to hospitals, businesses, airplanes, etc., the creators of the Molekule plan on standing by its mission to “effectively eliminate air pollution altogether.”
