The 1 Home Appliance You Don’t Own – But Should

Why everyone’s talking about air purifiers

It’s a situation anyone dealing with Australia’s humidity knows all too well: you’ve braved the darkest depths of your wardrobe on the hunt for last season’s beloved Acne boots, only to find them covered in mould. Then, when spring hits, you find yourself constantly sniffling and wheezing thanks to the abundance of plant pollen in the air¹.

Suffice to say, the air we breathe – both inside and out – is full of invisible particles, from mould and pollen to chemicals, bacteria, toxic gases and more. Chemical substances found in scented candles can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air as they burn, for instance, and some carpets, rugs and their backing materials can also emit VOCs, formaldehyde included. Even pets can spread microscopic material around the home.

Placing an anti-humidity moisture absorber in your wardrobe and damp corners will alleviate mould, but to help improve the air quality in your home, look to the new Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier. This hard-working appliance is a true triple threat, functioning as an air purifier, cooling fan and heater all in one.

The result of Dyson’s world-renowned innovation and research, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier captures gases and 99.95% of fine particles such as allergens and pollutants2 in the home. Thanks to the fact it holds three times more graphite in its HEPA glass filter, it’s able to capture even more odours, domestic fumes and gases (including formaldehyde) than previous generation Dyson purifiers. With credentials like these, it’s no wonder it’s been accredited by the National Asthma Council Australia.

But how do you use it?

What’s really genius about the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier is that you can connect to it via your phone. Leave it to automatically monitor, react and purify the air, then chart its activity on the Dyson Link app3.

The app allows you to remotely control your home’s air quality, plus gives an indication of outdoor2 (and indoor) air quality. The purifier fan reports the indoor air quality to the app on an hourly basis, and gives you access to historical data over the day and week, so you can monitor indoor air quality inside your home. The app also boasts a filter replacement indicator and the product guide. In other words: it makes it all too easy for you.


What else does it do?
Beyond purifying the air inside your home, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier acts as a fast, efficient heater in winter and fan in summer. Jet Focus technology provides concentrated, powerful airflow for personal use or diffused mode to heat/cool the whole room, all while simultaneously purifying the air.

Like all Dyson fans, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link purifier harnesses Air Multiplier technology to create smooth, ultra-quiet airflow with no blades – it’s even been awarded the Quiet Mark by the Noise Abatement Society.
