We've all come across air purifiers, fans, and heaters, but have you ever seen a single unit that combines all three functions? Enter the Dyson HP04 Pure Hot+Cool. This remarkable device is not just an air purifier, fan, and heater, but it also offers the luxury and quality that Dyson is renowned for.

Design and features

At first glance, the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool resembles the Dyson Pure Cool, a fan with air purifying capabilities. However, the Pure Hot+Cool takes it a step further by incorporating a heater function. This unit comes in three sizes and various colors. For this review, we'll focus on the mid-sized White/Silver model, standing just over 30 inches tall.

The upper part of the device features an open oval design, allowing air to flow out through a groove around the front edge. Additionally, the air can be directed out the backside, providing air purification without cooling or heating the room. It's important to note that the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool is a fan that circulates the air and does not cool it like an air conditioner.

The base of the HP04 contains the motors, air purifier filtration system, a circular display, and a power button. The unit comes with four filters - two inner activated carbon filters and two outer HEPA filters. These filters work together to capture ultrafine particles, allergens, volatile organic compounds, and even mold spores, making it ideal for allergy sufferers, pet owners, and homes with dust, smoke, and pollen.

The base also features buttons on each side to unlock the outside panels for easy access to the filters. The filters are designed to nest together, ensuring efficient air purification. Moreover, the HP04 boasts a unique manual tilt feature that allows you to customize the airflow direction.

The unit includes a wireless remote control for convenient operation. While the remote controls most of the device's features, including fan speed and air quality, it's important to mention that the heater function can only be controlled through the remote due to safety standards.

Dyson Link app

To fully unleash the device's potential, it's recommended to install the Dyson Link app. Although it may seem like a hassle, the app enables you to create schedules for the HP04. The app replicates the physical remote's functionality while providing additional features like scheduling. However, due to safety regulations, the app does not control the unit's heater function. So, it's crucial not to misplace the physical remote control.

Using the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool HP04

Using and controlling the HP04 is a breeze (except for the heater control limitation). During testing, the unit was placed in a basement with a constant temperature of around 67 degrees Fahrenheit. The device replaced an IR heater and an Airdog X5 air purifier. The goal was to assess whether the Dyson HP04 could perform the tasks of two separate devices.

If you watch the included video clip, you'll notice the HP04's excellent oscillation feature. Unlike other devices, the HP04 can rotate up to 350 degrees, and the remote allows you to choose the desired oscillation angle. This feature ensures efficient distribution of warm or cool air throughout the room.

I particularly appreciated the auto feature, which automatically adjusts the fan speed or activates the heater to maintain the desired room temperature. Even on medium settings, the fan noise was tolerable, and on lower settings, it was barely noticeable. Additionally, the night feature runs the fan at the lowest setting and dims the display, allowing for uninterrupted sleep.

What I like

  • All-in-one functionality: air purifier, heater, and fan.
  • Impressive oscillation feature for enhanced air circulation.
  • Low fan noise on lower settings.
  • Convenient scheduling feature in the app.

What I'd change

  • Add feature control buttons on the device itself for easier access.

Final thoughts

As someone who has reviewed numerous air purifiers, fans, and heaters, the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool HP04 stands out as an exceptional all-in-one unit. It provides warmth in winter, keeps you cool in summer, and purifies the air all year round. Dyson's reputation for quality and support ensures that replacement filters will be available for a long time, guaranteeing the longevity of this fantastic device.

Price: $649.99 and $39.99 for replacement filters from Amazon
