Detailed Breakdown Of Dyson Pure Hot Plus Cool Air Purifier
Reviewing Dyson air purifier was a cumbersome task but yet interesting. As it an expensive product so analyzing its worth was extremely important. We tested the machine inside out and analyzed its purification performance. All our recommendations are based on the testing process.
We tested its design, features, built, make, and its efficiency to purify to gauge its real worth. We took good 50 hours to come with this expert hands on review. So, let’s start with it:
1. Purification Test
We were impressed to see its purification efficiency while performing the purification tests. We tested Dyson Pure Hot Plus Cool air purifier for variety of pollens, allergens, pollutants, and bactria’s and to our surprise it passed everything. The device can purify up to 99.5% efficiently. However, the time taken to purify might differ with the surrounding air.
Pollens, allergens, air pollutants, and bacteria’s are everywhere in your household throughout the year no matter how clean you keep your house. While they may not be making you sick but they are not helping either.
These harmful particulate are invisible to the naked eye so are often ingested in our body. With time their accumulation causes health hazards. You should be doubly sure if you have toddlers or kids at home as they are the vulnerable to catch infections.
To fight against these tiny invader, the Pure Hot Cool Air purifier circulates air using its 360 degree filters. The air is circulated in every nook and corner of the room to make sure it removes 99.97% of allergens and pollutants.
On further analysis we found that the unit works best for a room size up to 600 sq.ft. This means you can install in your living room, kids bedroom,or the master bedroom. It will do the perfect job in minutes.
2. Thermostat Control
Next important aspect we wanted to check was its ability to heat or cool the room automatically via its thermostat control. For this you need to set the device to a comfortable desired temperature. When the room hits the temperature the fan shuts off. And as the room cools up and the temperature drops down, the fan starts to bring the temperature to the target temperature.
3. Heating And Cooling Feature
This feature is brought up by its no-vent 360 degree circulating fan. Along with purification the device can also work to cool or heat your room. Nevertheless, it depends on the weather conditions. In a normal season when its little hot, you can on the fan along with the purification mode to cool down your room and vice-versa.
Needless to say, the fan cooling effect is not similar to the effect caused by an AC but is good enough to give you cool fresh air. Be rest assured, we tested and love the fact that the fans are quiet. They are not like other purifier fans that make a constant rattling noise. The fan when in full speed produces a low humming sound which is soft to the ears.
4. Filter Efficiency
Dyson pure hot and cool has two kinds of filters. This model is upgraded version with Tris-coated activated carbon granule filter which is even more powerful to eradicate harmful pollutants like formaldehyde, toluene, naphthalene, and benzene from the atmosphere.
These kinds of pollutants are found in tobacco smoke, vehicle emission, gas stove, insulating material in home appliances, etc. The other filters that you get are the HEPA filters. They work for pollutants, bacteria, viruses, PM 2.5, PM 10, VOCs, and for other germs floating in the year.
While testing the filters, we found they work absolutely perfect for the Indian atmosphere. Most of the three tier cities and the metro cities in India are polluted with increase increase in number of vehicles and industrialization.
We tested it for different cities especially the metro cities to check the filter efficiency. The results were amazing no matter how much the air around you is polluted, the device works well to remove it.
Dyson Pure Hot Plus Cool air purifier can be operated in two ways: from the app and from the remote. Both the ways are pretty simple.
The remote is labelled well to help you choose the desired function. And the other way to use is via the Dyson Link app.
For this you need to connect the unit to a Wi-Fi. Once connected download the app on your smart phone and control the unit. The best part is you can use the app to operate the unit remotely from anywhere in the world.
With this you can set your device to the desired setting before starting for home to make sure when you reach a pleasant atmosphere is already created in your room.
The best part of the remote is that its magnetic, it sticks to the top of the device instantly ensuring its not lost.The mobile app is also user-friendly. You can make necessary adjustments, check real time pollution level, get the daily report, or change the temperature using it. Overall, the device is quiet flexible to operate.
6. User-friendly Modes
The Dyson air purifier has user-friendly features. You can customize its functioning as per your requirement. On analyzing these modes we found that the auto-mode is good when the temperature around you is normal.
You just have to set a target comfortable temperature and the device operates to purify and maintain the target temperature.
Same way, if the weather around you is cool or hot, you can set the fan air as per the requirement. In addition to all this, there is a sleep mode to that dims up the light and slows down the operating sound. All these features make the device quiet customizable depending on different weather conditions.
Dyson Pure Hot Plus Cool does not require any stringent rules and service for maintenance. Instead maintaining the device is done it simple steps by cleaning the filters and the unit and changing the filter when required.
We suggest you to clean the filters once in a month for the increased life span of the unit. Thankfully, the filters are easy to access, you have to simply hold down the two buttons on either side of the unit and lift the fan portion.
The HEPA filters are to be removed and cleaned periodically. Further, the HEPA filters does not require annual replacement. The second active carbon filters don’t need to be cleaned but are to be replaced. The carbon filters provide a fan time of good 4,000 hours(you can monitor them using the app) and after this they need to be replaced.
We evaluated and found the carbon filter require replacement once a year but that also depends on the usage. On the whole, there is additional monthly cost but an annual filter replacement cost is their. No matter which purifier you purchase, filter(activated carbon) change is required once a year.
8. Worth The Price

Pros And Cons
Why Is It The Best Air Purifier For Today's Pollution Level In India?
There has been a continuous change in the climatic conditions and also in the quality of air around us. Sadly, both these things are depreciating due to the influx of variety of industries and due to the fact that every second thing is commercialized. The smoke from industries, effluent waste, smoke from vehicles, and burning of fossil fuel to generate electricity are some of the prime factors that have made the quality of air around us to go from bad to worse.
To combat this issue, there is an increase in demand of air purifiers in India. Customers are buying them with a close eye as they trust the brands. But the sad part is the absence of any regulatory requirements and benchmarks associated with these air purifier's in India. Have you ever tested that the air purifier installed in your room is fulfilling the purpose and providing you a clean environment or not?
In India, all the conventional air purifiers that you you will find depend on the old age method of gauging their performance by carrying out a laboratory test method called 'Clean Air Delivery Rate'. This test was developed 30 years ago and it no where represents the today real home conditions. Therefore, it is obsolete for today's scenario and the high pollution levels.
The Clean Air Delivery rate test is conducted in a small compact chamber of just 127sq ft. This size no where resembles to the size of the rooms that we have today. In the chamber, one fan is added to circulate the air and one sensor to gauge the air quality. The box type purifier when placed in this room does not circulate the clear air all around the room instead create a clean air bubble around the device.
This often manipulate the sensors into believing that the room has clean air but sadly the clean air is just present around the machine. Thus, these air purifiers fail to give you the clean air across your entire room. So, the conventional air purifiers that only pass the CADR test does not really solve the problem to provide you clean air throughout the room.
Dyson has come up with the most advanced technology that combats to fight with the real life environment conditions. They have developed a much better validated testing process called the POLAR test. This test is the bench mark for the air purifiers manufactured by them to reflect real home usage more accurately.
The test is conducted in a large room of size 290sqft with no added fans around it. The size of the room is equal to the size of present day family rooms. No fan use is specifically synonymous to the Indian weather, as many people don't use fan during the peak pollution or during summers when the ACs are on.
In this test, the air purifier is placed in one corner of the room similar to the real life home situation and 9 sensors are placed at different locations in the room to check the performance. Out of these 1 sensor is placed in the center and the rest of the 8 are placed in different areas spread apart so as to check the level of air quality and map out how the air purifier is working in every section of the room.
This method is thus the most accurate method to assesses the ability of the air purifier to remove the harmful pollutants, and gases, and thereby uniformly clean the air around the whole room via airflow projection. POLAR test is the most accurate testing method that should be followed for testing any air purifier.
For a machine that passes the POLAR test, the machines should do three basic things. First the purifier should sense the pollution level and the quality of the air in your room automatically. Second it should remove the gases and tiny pollutants from the air. And third it should mix, circulate, and project the purified air all around the whole room. These three things when combined ensure the air around the room is thoroughly purified. The Dyson Hot Plus Cool Air Purifier designed and tested to do all of this properly. And that is why it is the best air purifier in India to fight against the variety of pollutant and gases in the air.
While all the Dyson Product that we have reviewed does not mark high but this one certainly does. This device can work in three ways: purifier, heater, and fan. As a purifier it works to eliminate the health hazardous particulate matters, pollutants, bacteria, germs, and other viruses from the air by up to 99.97%.
As a fan, it provides you cool fresh air. And as a heater, it deliver continuous hot air to maintain/reach a chosen temperature in your room after which its shuts down to save electricity. If you are someone who is finding hard to cope up with the polluted atmosphere, prefer buying this unit for your and your family's health.
