This is our review of the Dyson pure cool air purifier. When I think of Dyson, I usually think of well engineered vacuum cleaners or fans the peer cool is Dyson’s very first purifier but what makes it so unique is that it can be controlled from anywhere in the world using your smartphone.
So here’s our review. The pure cool looks exactly like Dyson’s a m07 tower fan but instead of heating or cooling your home it cleans the air. This is due to the HEPA filter that’s installed in the base, the peer cooling is reported to remove 99.97% of particles as small as point three microns.
So it includes pollutants like mold, asbestos, odor, smoke and even carbon dust. The pure cool is not as wide as other purifiers but it’s taller at 101 centimeters or 40 inches. It’s well-built and unlike the majority of other purifiers, it’s not a typical big plastic box.
Speaking of boxes. Inside the box comes three pieces the top portion which is the bladeless fan. The bottom unit which holds the HEPA filter and a remote control. Putting it together is easy. Just connect the top of the fan to the base and when you hear a click you’re ready to go.
The fan oscillates so it can be put anywhere in the room and because it’s so tall you’ll cover the majority of situations. There’s not much setup involved either to set it up just plug it in the wall and set the levels between 1 and 10 noise. Pollution between levels 1/4 is non-existent at level 10.
It’s certainly noticeable but not loud enough that you can’t hear yourself talk. If you’re not sure what level to set it to, you can use the automatic mode. It will monitor the level of air pollution in your home and turns on the purifier when the air quality drops below a certain level.
Does it have a built-in smart phone? no it doesn’t. That would be awkward, but it does have an app that lets you control and monitor your air purifier from anywhere in the world using your phone, which is available for both iOS and Android right. This is the first Dyson product that offers an Internet of Things feature.
Once connected you can control the purifier from your phone just like the remote. You can turn it on and off, change levels between 1 and 10 and set up a schedule or even use night mode, which dims the LED lights and lowers the fan speeds. But the biggest advantage of using the app is monitoring air quality.
The app shows you daily and weekly reports of the air quality in your home. There are four different levels of air quality with good being, the best and very poor being the worst. Depending on how you set up your pure cool, it will switch on often.
If you are very sensitive to particles and pollutants, app shows you daily and weekly reports along with the temperature and humidity levels. Now one thing I did notice is that the temperature is stuck in Fahrenheit with no way to change it to Celsius.
In my studio the air quality was mostly good, so an auto mode it only switched on every so often. I also like the fact that the app tells you how many hours are left before needing to change the filter. Each filter lasts for 4,300 hours which equates to about 180 days. If you have it running for 24 hours a day.
The filter itself costs $99 Canadian. Now unless you have really poor air quality, you can get away changing your filter once per year. If you plan on using the purifier sometimes as a fan just be warned that there is no option to turn off the filter but only reset it.
I recommend removing the filter when you leave it in fan mode. This way it won’t reduce the remaining hours left until you need to buy a new one. Now the big question how good is the Dyson pure cool at keeping the air you breathe nice and clean.
Well it’s hard to say without doing any scientific testing but what we can say is that it’s using the heap a standard which provides some assurance that the air is being clean. I also found a video demonstration that shows the pure coal filtering a large box of cigarette smoke within a short amount of time.
So here are my final thoughts and I’ll start with what I liked about the dice empirical. I love the design, it’s a fresh take on what an air purifier should look like in a market full of plastic boxes that works and functions well – a few bugs that should be fixed in a future update.
I can monitor the air quality control my Dyson from any where in the world, allow me to actually see what’s happening with the air in my home. The filter is easy to replace and the fact that I can use it as a fan is icing on the cake. Now here are the things that I did it like.
It’s an expensive product at 550 Canadian or 500 dollars u.s. Especially when you compare it to the cost of other purifiers that use the heap of standard. The filter is made well but it can’t be cleaned. Which means you have to buy a new one.
And finally, if you just want to use it as a fan there’s no mode to stop the HEPA filter from working. You have to manually take the filter off yourself. The dice empirical is a great air purifier with the added benefit of being used as a fan.
Customers buying this product have to decide whether or not the excellent design and smart phone enabled features are worth the extra cost over other keeper approved air purifiers. We want to know what you guys think of the Dyson pure cool in the comments down below.
