Let me start by explaining two kinda big things here — first, I live in San Francisco, which in the last week has experienced what can only be described as scenes from a dystopian horror movie to be released sometime in 2021.
Second, my husband suffered through what was honestly the scariest sickness of his life — COVID-19 — back in March and is still dealing with some of the side effects, mainly trouble with his breathing.
So when it came time to look for something to help us deal with both of those things, I wasn't here to play. I went with a brand I know, love, and that multiple people had recommended to us — Dyson. Specifically, the Dyson Pure Humidify + Cool.
Before I talk about anything else, I need to address the hefty price tag associated with the Dyson Pure Humidify + Cool — it's $800! Just saying that makes my breathing labored, forget my husband. But here's how I justified it:
It's not an easy pill to swallow, and there are def other options on the market that may be a better fit for your budget. All that said, none of them did everything we needed in our house and this Dyson convinced us that it was worth the cash.
