Our editor-in-chief just moved into a new house—a very old new house, built in 1912—and, while things seem to be in relatively good shape (slight slope to the original hardwood floors aside), air quality is a concern.
Enter the Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool ($800)—a next-level purifying fan heater that’s changed our air game. What does it do? For starters, it automatically senses, captures and traps pollutants (think particles as small as 0.3 microns such as allergens, bacteria, pollen and mould spores), and effectively removes 99.97 per cent of them via a combo of intelligent sensing and an advanced HEPA filtration system. Plus, this machine has powerful Air Multiplier™ tech to purify a whole, open-concept room—and it looks slick, in either black / nickel or white / silver, to boot. Now that’s a major win-win in our clean-and-healthy breathing books.
Other bonuses: it oscillates up to 350 degrees, it’s been cooling our space in summer (hello, heat dome), it will heat things up in winter, and we can manage and monitor this baby with a handy smartphone app (or even voice control). Dyson engineers put a tonne of work into making this machine as quiet as possible, and the filter is quick and easy to change (we even get automatic filter-life notifications on the LCD or Dyson Link app).
Ahh, thank you Dyson, for making our new home feel so wond-air-ful. —Vita Daily
