To fight these microscopic invaders, the Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink makes use of a 360° Glass HEPA filter, which Dyson claims will seize 99.97% of the allergens and pollution floating round your dwelling space.
In a Dyson-led demonstration, the underside half of a Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink unit was positioned in a glass case which was then full of smoke. Earlier than lengthy, the smoke inside this clear field began to dissipate, illustrating simply how exhausting the machine’s filter was working to take away toxins from the air.
And it is solely been improved for the 2017 mannequin – this yr, Dyson has upgraded the machine’s filter with an additional layer of activated carbon for improved gasoline seize.

Sadly, this type of purification filter can’t be cleaned, which means you’ll want to switch it as soon as it’s reached its pollutant quota. Every filter ought to give you round 4,000 hours of fan time (you may monitor this from the brand new Dyson app), which is able to most likely final you a yr or so, relying on how typically you allow the fan working.
Fortunately, the filter is remarkably simple to entry – merely maintain down the 2 buttons on both facet of the unit and raise the fan portion off to disclose the Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink’s innards.
Massive and cylindrical in form, the filter slips out simply, and slotting a brand new one instead is as simply as simple because it sounds.
Although this yr’s Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink comes with the brand new and improved filter with an additional layer of activated carbon, house owners of final yr’s mannequin are capable of get the identical purification expertise by merely buying the up to date alternative filter from Dyson for AU$99.95 (US and UK value unknown).
Certain, you may take Dyson’s phrase that the Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink is bettering the air high quality in your house, however you’re higher off monitoring it your self in actual time with Dyson’s iOS and Android app.
Organising the app will take a couple of minutes, as you’ll have to search out your new Dyson machine, title it, after which join it to your Wi-Fi community (2.4Ghz solely). To do that, it’s a must to set the fan to Wi-Fi mode, then uncover it out of your telephone or pill. Close to the bottom of the unit, subsequent to the facility button, you’ll discover a connection password. As soon as linked, your unit will likely be listed below ‘My Dyson machines’ within the Dyson app – merely faucet on the machine to manage it, alter its settings and monitor your air high quality.
The primary time we checked the air high quality in our room, we obtained again a yellow ‘Common’ score, illustrating to us that it was removed from the most effective it could possibly be.

The Dyson app’s scheduling system additionally makes it potential to take care of a constant degree of air high quality year-round.

App connection points
For some purpose, I used to be unable to finish the machine’s setup from my Samsung Galaxy S7, because it’d at all times fail throughout the Wi-Fi connection course of. Nonetheless, as soon as I went by way of the method on an iPhone 6, the Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink linked instantly. It was solely as soon as that preliminary Wi-Fi connection was established that I managed to entry the fan from my Android telephone.
Sadly, my Android connection issues didn’t cease there. Although I may initially management the unit from the app on my S7, permitting me to regulate settings like fan pace, warmth and oscillation, after a number of days the management portion of the app turned unresponsive, with none of my setting adjustments registering on the machine. Nonetheless working flawlessly on iOS, I ended up having to delete and reinstall the Android app, which additionally compelled me to undergo the connection course of once more. Fortunately, the Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink comes with its personal distant that magnetically snaps to the highest of the fan, so that you’ll at all times have management if the app is supplying you with bother.
Whereas these points will probably be mounted by an app replace, they did provide some frustration. I used to be capable of get previous this roadblock as a result of I had an iOS machine readily available, however not everybody goes to have that luxurious.
Sleep slightly higher
As somebody who likes to make use of a fan whereas sleeping, my greatest concern with earlier Dyson fashions has at all times been their ridiculously vivid shows that might not be dimmed in any manner. Able to brightening up a darkened room, these lights will scorch themselves into your mind if not coated in some vogue.
Up to now, I’ve been advised that strategically putting a teddy bear in entrance of the unit will block the sunshine, although this doesn’t work nicely when the fan is oscillating. The one resolution that ever labored for me concerned the shopping for of a tennis headband that I may stretch out and place over the show space. Certain, this blocks the fan’s retina-searing luminosity, however it additionally covers its infrared sensor, which means you’ll need to stand up and slide the scarf up to make use of the distant.
Fortunately, Dyson has lastly addressed this make-or-break concern by introducing a ‘Evening Mode’ which may be set with both a single button press or on a schedule. When switched on, the mode will robotically dim the show and shut it off after a number of seconds. A small gentle will stay to let you recognize the fan is powered on, however it’s nowhere close to as vivid because the ‘alien tractor beam’ degree that earlier fashions regrettably achieved.
Surely, Dyson’s Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink is likely one of the most superior merchandise that the corporate has ever developed for customers.
Its sensible performance adjustments the fan expertise for the higher and its purifying functionality is extraordinarily spectacular. Although it simply eclipses earlier Dyson followers when it comes to performance, there are nonetheless some issues to contemplate earlier than buying the Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink.
For one, you will want to sometimes exchange the Hyperlink’s filter, which is sort of an expensive endeavour. Secondly, the machine has some niggling connectivity points with regards to Android gadgets. For those who’re prepared to miss these potential points, the Dyson Pure Sizzling + Cool Hyperlink is the best fan the corporate has ever launched. It actually has a fan in me.
