When you’ve got the itchiest, scratchiest kid on the block there’s nothing a mum won’t try to ease their suffering.
Nothing could be truer for Mum Central writer, Victoria. She jumped at the chance when invited to trial the brand new Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater for this very reason and here’s what she discovered.
“We’re one of those families. We cough, sneeze and scratch our way through the seasons. My son Oscar suffers the worst. I’d be lying if I said there weren’t nights I’ve wanted to cry at his level of discomfort.
I’m already a long-time Dyson fan, it’s my go-to brand for vacuums. I currently spend a lot of time vacuuming in an effort to minimise the potential allergens Oscar is exposed to. We’ve already made changes such as switching to hard floors from carpet and dusting the house head-to-toe every few days.”
Do I want to be an obsessive cleaner? No. But I don’t have much choice.
“When I read all about the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater, I realised that I’d only been fighting part of the battle. Sure, I was removing the allergens from the surfaces in my home, but what about what was in the air? I was shocked to realise that the inside air of your home can be five times more polluted than the outside air.”
Exactly what were we all breathing in?
Firstly, how does it work and what does it do?
The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater is a heater, fan and air purifier in one. Genius!
Offering both heating and a fan to cool you, it’s suitable for use all year-round. It even connects via a Dyson Link app for smartphones to advise you of the ambient air quality. Further, this clever tech will show you what improvements it’s making in your home. (The app has a host of other features but we’ll get to them later!)
At its most basic, the air in your home could contain pollutants. These could be gases, pollen, pet dander, chemicals and mould spores. Using an air purifier, you can reduce these pollutants in the home.
The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater’s HEPA filter has an extra layer of activated carbon for improved gas capture. It sucks in the air at a full 360 degrees, pushing it through the filter chamber to capture nasties and then recirculates the air back into the room.
Like Everything Dyson, It’s Smart in Design
The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater is different to your average fan or heater and pretty clever on the safety front. You’ll find there are no fan blades or visible heating elements so it’s an intelligent re-invention of the everyday heating/fan appliance.
Despite being multi-function, the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater is a compact unit. It stands only 60cm tall and has a small footprint of just 22cm. Sure, it looks streamlined and has ample design-cred, but it’s also important you don’t need a dedicated ‘purifying’ room to house it making it perfect for the family home.
The air purifying function of the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater helps combat indoor air pollution.
This model can capture 99.95% of particles down to PM0.1 which could include pet dander, pollen, allergens and the tiniest of airborne particles. Other purifiers can struggle to trap as much, releasing potentially harmful ultrafine particles back into the room.
Of course, another great thing about Dyson products is their two year warranty and exceptional customer support and service – important and valuable peace-of-mind.
It’s seriously smart tech
Okay we alluded to the Dyson Link app and how it reports both the air quality and impacts of the machine. You can also use the app to schedule how often the appliance will run, change its settings (like an extra remote) and use it in a handyauto mode where the machine will turn on if it detects compromised home air quality.
Basically, the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater can almost think for itself. Set it up, walk away and know day-in-day-out this little genius is purifying the air in your home. As the brochure says, it’ll automatically monitor, react and purify. How reassuring as a mum to think there’s something in the house that doesn’t need your attention…
If you work to a family budget it’s a relief to know the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater lets you select the target temperature to the degree and uses an intelligent thermostat to maintain your desired temperature.
As a Fan/Heater, It’s Ultra-Safe and Very Effective
As a mum one of the biggest concerns in heating and cooling around children is safety. The Dyson has no fan blades for curious children to catch their hands in removing the risk of fingers getting caught. It’s also worth noting the unit weighs under 4kg so if you desire to move it from room-to-room it’s super-easy to handle.
As for controlling room temperature, the unit has a range between 1 and 37 degrees. It oscillates at the press of a button and also offers jet focus control. This means the choice between long-range person heating or fast, even whole room heating.
It’s Jam-Packed With Other Features
It’s also worth mentioning some of our other favourite features in the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater. The filter requires no fiddling and is long-life. (If you run the unit 12 hours a day for a year, you’d need to replace the filter after one year). The model is wipe clean, you only have to run a damp cloth over it to keep it pristine. The night time mode means you can switch to a quieter operation if you’re sensitive to the fan noise while you sleep. Plus, the remote control sits tidily on top of the unit with a concealed magnet. Dyson really pays attention to the little details and this ‘never lose the remote again’ functionality really takes my fancy.
So What’s Our Verdict on the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Purifier Fan Heater?
Clever, modern design and intelligent functionality means the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater not only looks great but actually performs.
As a heater: We trialled the product in winter and the soft, toasty warmth is gentle and enjoyable. It is worth noting that the cooling function is not actually an air-conditioner but a fan that performs in the same way as a pedestal fan.
The app: The app is easy to connect (even if you’re not at all tech-savvy) and it became my immediate new addiction to check and improve the air quality of every room in my house! Thankfully the unit is lightweight and it was no effort at all to move it, nor find a place to position it, due to its compact size.
The remote: The remote is easy to make sense of and operationally, despite the multiple and sophisticated functions of the product, it’s extremely user-friendly.
If you or your family want to support a healthier home environment we definitely recommend trying the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link™ purifier fan heater for yourself!
