Dyson's new bladeless fan keeps air hot, cold and clean
Dyson has rolled its air purification, heating and cooling products into one all-powerful air-manipulator. The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link can purify the air in rooms and keep them at a comfortable temperature all year round, without the need for separate devices.
Dyson says the Pure Hot+Cool Link is able to capture 99.97 percent of potentially harmful particles, such as pollen, mold and bacteria, as small as 0.3 microns. To do so, it uses a 360-degree Glass HEPA filter, which combines borosilicate microfibers, carbon granules and a perforated acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) shroud to filter the air. That filter is also used in the Dyson Pure Cool.
Sensors inside the machine automatically detect pollutants and changes in air conditions, to adjust airflow and maintain the air quality. Live indoor air quality is reported to the accompanying Dyson Link App, which is available for Android and iOS. The app also allows users to set air quality target levels, view air quality history and view the outdoor air quality in a location of their choice.
Users can control the desired heat level using a thermostat and airflow power via 10 settings. The purified air is then conditioned to the target temperature and streamed out into the room using the same Air Multiplier technology that has been used by Dyson's other fans since 2009 and by its heaters since 2011. The system releases air through a jet and accelerates it over an airfoil in one direction out of the fan, subsequently magnifying the stream by pulling more air through from the other side.
The Pure Hot+Cool Link also oscillates to "project and circulate" the treated air across and around the room. A sleep timer, meanwhile, allows users to set intervals for the device to run, ranging from 15 minutes to 9 hours.
The Pure Hot+Cool Link will be available in the US on Dyson's website from September 6th and in major retail stores from September 18th, costing US$599.99. There's no word yet on when or if it will be made available in other countries.
