From June to September, the air quality in Singapore usually worsens due to air pollutants that the winds carry over from Indonesia when farmers use slash-and-burn tactics to clear forested land for cultivation. In 2013, Singapore experienced the worse haze outbreak with a PSI reading of 401. Last year during haze season, Singapore experienced an unhealthy PSI reading higher than 100.

Because of this, Singaporeans try to stay indoors when the haze hits. However, indoor air isn’t necessarily safer. There are many things in your home that can contribute to indoor air pollution, such as cooking fumes, animal fur, cleaning products, cigarette smoke, and mould. All of these things produce tiny particles that can enter your lungs and affect your family’s health.

If you want to improve the air quality in your home, it is high time you invest in an air purifier. If you don’t know where to begin, here are 5 features to look out for when shopping for an air purifier in Singapore.

Good design

The first thing you will want to consider when looking for an air purifier in Singapore is its design. Daikin’s air purifiers happen to be great choices because they are built with your ease and convenience in mind. Their designs make them easy to move around and aren’t intrusive in any way, so they can also help optimise your space at home as a whole. The MC30VVM-H, for example, is a compact 189mm in width.

Dust and odour indicators

To make things even more convenient for you, Daikin’s air purifiers display contaminant and odour levels, so you can monitor them with ease. Models MC55UVM6 and MCK55TVM6 come with an active plasma ion generation unit that doesn’t require changing or maintenance.

High airflow

Daikin’s air purifiers have an airflow rate of up to 5.5 m3/min* , and are suitable for rooms from 21.5sqm up to 41sqm. Daikin’s air purifiers also have a unique air intake design that enables them to clean more air altogether and purify the air faster. MCK55TVM6 is even built with a double-layer humidifying filter, you won’t have to worry about changing it for ten whole seasons.

Quiet operations

While it may be virtually impossible to find completely quiet air purifiers in the market, Daikin’s air purifiers offer whisper quiet operations as low as 19dBA (as soft as whisper), so you can sleep soundly all night and never be bothered by noise.


There are many other benefits of an air purifier, too. Daikin’s air purifiers can clean and deodorise indoor air, catch and eliminate dust, and purify the air faster, for example. The best part is that Daikin has a wide array of choices in its lineup of air purifiers. All you have to do is choose the one that best suits your budget and needs.
