Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier
Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier is top of the line, three-in-one air purifier. It combines the functions of true HEPA air purifier, with a cooling fan and a air heater in one single unit.
Note: it is not 'portable' AC unit, it is 'just' cooling fan!
Also, it comes with many other features, including both manual and automatic operation, Wi-Fi connectivity and control via Dyson's App, long lasting HEPA air filter, stylish looks etc.
Since amount of airborne particles at homes can be even 5-10 times larger than amount of such particles outside, Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier is highly recommended unit for anybody wanting to breathe clean air.
Dyson Air Purifier is compact unit, with the diameter of 8.7 inches (~22 cm) and the height of 24.88 inches (~63 cm). Also, it weighs 8.62 pounds (3.9 kg), however, since the unit is stationary, its weight is not a problem - it is not vacuum cleaner that has to be pulled/pushed around in order to do the cleaning.
To improve the area coverage, unit can be tilted manually - the body pivots around its own center of gravity, with 10° adjustable angle. Thanks to the oscillation control, unit can blow the air around the room, with 70° maximum coverage angle.
Unit can operate in so-called night-time mode, using the fan's quietest setting. In this mode led display also dims. In this mode, unit cleans the air, while not disturbing people, kids or pets while they are asleep.
Noise at maximum fan setting is around ~64 dB, but at the lowest fan setting, unit is almost whisper quiet. Maximum air flow is 4.3 gal/s, allowing the unit to keep clean larger rooms and offices - it is important to let the unit operate continuously and keep amount of air pollutants and allergens low all the time.
Note: there are 10 available fan speed settings to choose from.
Power cord is 5.9 feet (~1.8 m) long and personally, it should be longer - it is recommended to position the unit one meter from the walls, preferably in the corner of the cleaned/monitored room, in order to ensure proper air flow. Such short power cord often requires extension cord which should be dimensioned according to the units power requirements - maximum power consumption is ~2100 watts, while maximum fan setting requires ~45 watts.
Note: since technical specifications often change without prior notice, if you do require extension cord, be sure to check power requirements of your own air purifier.
Dyson Air Purifier is designed with the safety in mind:
- there are no exposed moving blades - impeller is positioned behind the HEPA air filter (in terms ofair flow), before the ceramic air heaters. This increases the unit's safety, but also reduces the fan's noise.,
- unit monitors its parameters, notify the user and if required, it stops itself,
- also, if the unit is tipped over, unit automatically stops with the operation - unit is not easy to tip over, but families with little kids and pets will like this feature very much.
As said before, Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier operates as air purifier, cooling fan and air heater.
Air Purifier: Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier comes with a true HEPA air filter, which is capable of removing 99.97% of 0.1 microns or larger air particles.
Air filter itself is state-of-the-art product - it has several layers with each one having its own purpose:
- the first layer is made from H-13 HEPA borosilicate microfiber, which is pleated 333 times. Such design ensures relatively large filter surface, while keeping the filter compact.
- second layer is a layer of active graphite specially treated with oxygen to make it more porous and then tris-coated to increases the ability of filter to capture potentially harmful gases like formaldehyde and similar.. For short, this layer captures volatile and dangerous organic compounds, pet and kitchen odors and fumes.
Such air filter is not cheap, but the unit is smart enough to signal the user when it is time to change the filter.
When the unit is in use for ~12 hours per day, the filter should last on average one year - this highly depends on the local conditions.
Cooling Fan: Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier comes with 'Jet Focus Control', enabling the unit to expel air in two modes - focused or diffused air stream. Unit is designed to draw air from whole 360°, filter it and than expel it in required direction.
As said before, this unit is not able to decrease the temperature of the expelled air.
Air Heater: if required, unit can operate as an air heater, warming the air using its ceramic heaters. Maximum operating temperature of these heaters is 392°F (200°C), preventing the burning smell of any kind. Since heaters are behind HEPA air filter (in terms of air flow), the amount of possible particles that might be burned on the heaters is rather small. Nonetheless, lower heater temperature is one another important safety feature.
During the cold days, user has to set the desired air temperature, and unit tries to warm the air to keep the required temperature.
Note that Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier automatically monitors the air temperature and quality and adjust required airflow accordingly.
In order to control the unit via smart device (smartphone, tablet etc.), download the app on the device and install it, select the 'Add product' and follow the instructions.
For those users who don't want to use Dyson Link App, unit comes with 'classic' remote control device that can be used to control the unit.
Using Amazon Echo (purchased separately), it is possible to control Dyson air purifier with the simple, spoken instructions - voice control.
Note: Dyson Air purifier is simple to operate unit, but it is highly recommended to read the manual/instructions thoroughly before the very first use.
Humidifier/dehumidifier: Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier doesn't monitor nor regulate amount of moisture in the air.
Long Story Short: Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link Air Purifier is excellent, true HEPA air purifier and one of the best in its class. It is not the cheapest unit on the market, but what you pay is what you get: true HEPA air purifier, remote control, Dyson Link App control and status report, voice control (via Amazon Echo), long lasting air filter, many safety features etc.
