Pretty soon after we moved into our house we realized that there were some air quality issues to deal with. I mean our house was over 100 years old and not insulated so we knew this going into the buy, but we didn’t really understand what that would mean either.
The very back room on our third floor, which was originally my office, then Magnus’ room and now is Henrik’s room, has always been a little humid and musky smelling. We know that its because there is no attic above his room and that there are two exterior facing walls as well. That’s also why that little room in the back is also always too cold or too hot and we can never seem to regulate the temperature properly.
When Magnus was a baby and the temperature dropped to -20 overnight his room would be 10 degrees. We had to bundle him right up, put him in a heavy duty sleep sack and leave his door open so the heat from the other rooms would enter his room heat it up and air out the stale air. This worked some what but with Michael waking up really early for work and other household noises it just wasn’t a solution, so we eventually moved Magnus into his older brother’s room and left that back room unoccupied. A space heater just wasn’t for us as we knew it could pose a fire danger and they weren’t regulating the heat.
When Henrik arrived and we needed that back space once again. We dealt with the hot room over the summer by closing all the vents in our house except for the one in the nursery and blasting the air conditioning all summer long. If Henrik’s room was comfortable to be in, it meant the rest of the house was freezing. And now that a cold front has finally settled in and we’ve had to turn on our heat, in order to keep his room comfortable the rest of the house feels like a sauna. So again we found ourselves in a bit of a predicament.
But then we found out about the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link and decided we had to try it. It purifies the air while controlling the temperature in a room as well. We set it up one night just before Henrik went to bed and literally have never looked back. I love it so so much!
I was able to set the temperature that I want his room to be at and it automatically keeps his room at the right temperature while purifying the air at the same time. Its incredibly quiet, at first I didn’t realize it was on, and it has a night setting so that the light on the front that tells you the temperature shuts off not to create a visual distraction for the sleeping baby. The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link never overheats, even though it heats the air, the actual app itself never becomes hot to the touch. I control it all from either the app on my iPhone or the tiny remote I keep on the table beside the glider in his room.
The best thing is that we don’t have to blast the heat in the whole house now just to keep that back un-insulated room comfortable for Henrik. We can have the best of both worlds and fresh clean air for our little guy too. You have no idea how badly I wish this had been around when Magnus was a baby, it is so amazing.
We love it so much that another family and I are going to purchase a couple of machines to donate to Johannes’ classroom. You see their school is very old and there is no air conditioning, and the heat also doesn’t work as it should in every class. The windows don’t open and the air quality is poor. So we want to make sure that our kids are healthy and comfortable all year round in their classroom as well, and the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link is the perfect way for us to do that.
