Honeywell’s Move Pure car air purifier looks nice and sleek. But without any user information on air quality improvement from the device, does it really work? We attempt to find out.
Honestly I didn’t really expect much out of a ‘car air purifier’ without a display gauge telling me about all the different air particles before and after / during its operation. After all, air conditioned cars themselves come with their own air filters to keep dust and other air impurities out of its cabin.
But to give you an idea of what it feels like with Honeywell’s Move Pure air purifier running inside the car I must take you back a few pages in this magazine. I recently went on a road trip to Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh (you can read about my account of the journey in the past pages). Partly because of the pleasant weather and partly because of the absolutely clean air in the region, I chose to drive around with the windows down. And even when we drove to the higher reaches of Spiti, despite low oxygen levels it was not very difficult for us to breathe there.
The reason being that the air was just so clean and pure there that despite low oxygen levels, it was in fact, easier to breathe there. According to the laws of mother nature, this is the air we were meant to breathe – in its purest essence.
Unfortunately, due to all of the various forms of air pollution in our urban centers, none of us living in these areas have clean air to breathe. Fortunately, just after I got back to Delhi I started using this Honeywell air purifier. In the initial moments of operation, I couldn’t really tell the difference. But after a while of driving around, all of a sudden realised that I was finding it much easier to breathe.
So, for your benefit, I suggest you go out and try this particular air purifier. Although there are no gauges or display to tell you how in-cabin air quality improves while using it, I guarantee you will find it easier to breathe. And to me, that’s the only parameter which counts in the performance of an air purifier.
