Dyson makes premium, high-quality home appliances. They also make one of the best air purifiers in the market. And the only thing that might make you think twice about getting a Dyson air purifier is its price tag.
The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Series (HP Series) flagship model is the Dyson HP01–a multifunctional device that purifies the air all year round, heats, and cools the whole room as well.
Air Multiplier Technology
Aside from having three main functions–purifying, heating, and cooling, the HP01 uses Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier technology, a technology that allows the device to effectively circulate air across the room by amplifying surrounding air.
Because of this technology, the HP01 does not have exposed fast-spinning blades or heating elements that can cause unwanted injuries. The Air Multiplier technology also uses a brushless electric motor that rotates the blades located at the pedestal which gives a precise control of air speed while being quiet.
No Exposed Blades and Heating Elements
The blades of the HP01 are hidden on its pedestal so it does not have any awkward grills which will make it easier for you to clean the unit. As mentioned above, without the visible fast-spinning blades and heating elements, the Dyson HP01 is very safe to use even with kids and pets around. Also, the bladeless design makes the HP01 look sleek and innovative.
Design and Fan Performance
When it comes to design, we can all agree that the HP01 looks unique. It has a clean, minimalistic appearance that looks incredible–it is a tower type fan with oblong-shaped amplifier. And with that kind of design combined with the Air Multiplier technology, the HP01 can project cool air across large spaces. It can also be used for long-range personal or room heating. The HP01 delivers 77 gallons of smooth air per second. Impressive, isn’t it? It also has up to 350 degrees of oscillation and pivots on its own gravity. Plus it has 10 air speed settings that you can choose from.
Air Purifier Performance
Not only does the HP01 a powerful fan but it is also an impressive air purifier, equipped with two high-quality air filters, 360 Glass HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter that captures 99.97% of ultra-fine particles, as small as 0.3 microns, from the air including pollen, dust, allergens, and pet danders; and Active Carbon that traps bad odors, gases, toxins, fumes, and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compound). The air filtration system fitted into the HP01 makes the HP01 ideal for people suffering from various health conditions like asthma and hay fever as well as people prone from allergies because it improves air quality which is why it’s certified asthma and allergy friendly by Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
Focused, Diffused, and Night Modes
The HP01 offers different mode options: Jet Focus Control, Diffused, and Night modes. If you set the air purifier into Jet Focus Control mode, it will have a more direct and focused air stream, on the other hand, the Diffused mode will give you a broader and wider airflow. Meanwhile, the Night mode will set the device into its quietest setting and it will also dim the display.
No WiFi Connectivity, Remote Control Included
The HP01 does not support WiFi or voice command and the only way that you can control the machine is through the remote control included in the box and through the button on the front of the pedestal that switches on and off the device, adjusts the airspeed, sets the mode options, changes the function (purifier, hot, cold), and controls the oscillation. The curved and magnetic remote control also has the same commands as the button on the base of the HP01 but it is better since you can easily control or adjust the settings even without physically touching the device itself. Also, the remote control is magnetized so you can attach and store it neatly on top of the HP01.
When it comes to safety, the HP01 is considered to be one of the safest in the market since it does not have visible fast-spinning blades or heating elements but aside from that the HP01 also has Child Safe feature which allows the device to automatically shut down when it is knocked over making it ideal for families or for homes with kids and pets. Also, with the lack of big rotating blades, the HP01 is a quiet fan and has received the Quiet Mark accreditation.

Overall, HP01 is a great air purifier. It meets all the criteria of what makes a good air purifier and it also serves as a fan and a heater. It also uses bladeless technology which makes it safer and easier to clean than most air purifier fans in the market.
