Indoor air quality is something that I take for granted. The air doesn’t smell so it must be clean, right? Um….no. Indoor air can be a mixture of dust, chemicals, pollen, pet dander and more. Just because you can’t smell it or see it does not mean it is clean! We have been trying out the Dyson Pure Cool™ Link air purifier for the last few weeks. I love that it cleans our air while cooling and I can SEE that our air is cleaner.
How? you ask. Well, it’s name includes “Link” because using the new Dyson Link App, users can remotely monitor the indoor air quality via their smartphone. This allows you to see your air quality now and how improves over time.
You don’t have to stay on top of it, though, just set your Pure Cool to auto and it will measure your air quality, react and report to the app. A unique 360 degree Glass HEPA filter cleans the air in your home. The filter is pleated over 200 times, meaning it can trap 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns – including pollen, bacteria, viruses and ultrafine particles.
The app also allows you to pick your location. It reports air quality about your outdoor environment as well.
It is so cool that Dewey totally took over setting it up and installed the app on his phone. He said “I love Dyson! They make home appliances for engineers!”
Since he took so much interest in our new Pure Cool, I asked him to put together his thoughts on it.
- I think it would be difficult to talk about the Pure Cool Link air purifier without talking about how it looks. Standing around 1 metre tall, its modern design with metallic blue finish is really eye catching. Really an inspiring bit of industrial design. I hate anything designed to look interesting that doesn’t actually perform it’s intended function. For example, A really cool looking chair that isn’t comfortable to sit in is nothing more than a piece of junk. This appliance clearly avoids that trap and functions every bit as well as it pleases the eye.
- Since it has a filter, there is a limited life span per filter. The 4000 hours of run time will keep you in business for at least a year and half if your Pure Cool runs 8 hours a day. Replacement filters replace quickly and are available for around $70.
- Wifi connection was a snap and we didn’t hit a single snag getting the app installed or getting it connected to the Pure Cool.
- There is a small remote control that allows you to access all the same controls but without having to grab your phone. The remote stores neatly on top of the unit secured by a magnet, a very clever touch.
- Night mode is great for sleeping since it limits the noise and dims the display.
- Aside from the price ($849 on Amazon.ca) there really isn’t much not to like about the pure cool link tower. It may seem a bit pricey. However, if you subscribe to the “you get what you pay for” motto you will not be disappointed.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link is available in tower and desktop sizes at Dyson.ca as well as other retailers.
