More Than a Space Age Space Heater: Dyson Pure Hot Cool Link
Need a fan to cool you off after yoga by your southern window or while dancing like nobody's watching to your favorite DJ mix? Perhaps your building’s steam heat runs a bit chill during these winter months. Do you simply appreciate clean air? Me, too. That’s why I thought it would be helpful to find an all-in-one purifier/heater/fan for my living space.
I was skeptical when first unboxing the Dyson Pure Hot Cool Link Air Purifier. At around 500 to 600 dollars per unit, one has to wonder exactly what a air purifying fan of this price provides.
It’s a really good looking appliance. Without any visible fan blades, it’s also very safe. This feature alone makes the Dyson Pure Hot Cool Link Air Purifier indispensable for purifying environments with small children and pets around that may otherwise harm themselves on spinning fan blades. Traditional fan blades are also obnoxious to clean and they look super ratty after accumulating dirt and dust. Not with the Dyson—not only is it a breeze to clean, it’s obvious the bladeless configuration is a more civilized way forward. Coupled with actually purifying the air it circulates, it simple to see that this is the fan of the future.
The perks keep coming…The Dyson’s not just an air purifying fan, it doubles as an amazing space heater.
It took about 20 minutes to unpack and connect the unit to my wifi. I added it to my router’s guest network to keep it off the main bands, adding an extra layer of IoT security. With the Dyson app installed on my phone, I configured the settings, which include air purification preferences, direct or diffused air preferences, and oscillation preferences. The app’s home screen uses crowdsourced data to display outdoor air quality, and combines this with a sensor in the appliance enabling it to display indoor air quality.
Upon initial setup, the app showed the outdoor air as “moderate” and my indoor air quality “good.” So I set the unit to “auto.” It sat and did nothing, for at least a few hours.
Over time, I noticed the unit continually monitoring air quality and automatically turning on when the indoor quality surpassed set thresholds. I’ve come to really enjoy how the unit is fairly autonomous, a feature that really shines while using the heat function. Heating mode allows the user to set the desired temperature and the fan will warm the air while simultaneously purifying it. With the windows closed, it made short work of heating up spaces as large as six-hundred square feet. It will probably accommodate more.
Users also have the option of controlling the unit with the supplied remote control, it mustn't be connected to the internet. Although, it’s a lot of fun to use the app, knowing the unit is keeping the air quality high, summer air temps low, and winter temps warm. I really dig clean air, and I really dig the Dyson Pure Hot Cool Link Air Purifier. It’s priced high, but appears built-to-last. Design like this provides hope for the future.
