This week Dyson launched an updated version of its bestselling Hot and Cool fan heaters, the Dyson Pure Hot and Cool, which not only offers fast room heating in winter and powerful cooling in summer, but can now also filter and purify the air at the same time.
Not surprisingly, this innovative fan heater costs a pretty penny, with an launch price of £550. But is the hefty price of this unique three-in-one product justified?
We’ve tested the Dyson Hot and Cool AM05 and the Dyson Hot and Cool AM09. Read on to find out how the Dyson Pure Hot and Cool fan heater compares, and whether it’s worth paying for its additional advanced air filtration features.

Dyson Pure Hot and Cool
Dyson has added powerful sensors to the Hot and Cool fan heater, which measure humidity and temperature. They also automatically detect airborne particles and gases, such as outdoor pollution, cleaning products used in the home, and aerosol sprays such as hairspray or deodorant.
You can check on the level of allergens and pollutants in your home on the Pure Hot and Cool’s LCD screen or check the Dyson Link app on your smartphone or tablet, enabling you to easily improve the air quality in your home.
The purifying features can be activated using the remote or via the Dyson Link app.
What about heating and cooling?
The Dyson Pure Hot and Cool has a thermostat that will keep your room at the target temperature. The heating function will switch to stand-by mode once the target is reached and it will switch back on once it senses a drop in the temperature.
In cooling fan mode it projects a powerful, frontward stream of purified air.
It’s available in a sleek white and silver design and comes with a magnetised remote control that can be tidily stored on the top of the machine when it’s not in use.
Features include a sleep timer so you can set it to turn off after between 15 minutes and 9 hours, while it has a quieter night-time mode that also dims the brightness of the LCD screen.
How does it compare with Dyson Hot and Cool fan heaters and Dyson air purifiers?
We’ve tested the Dyson Hot and Cool AM09 heater fan (£400), shown in the picture above, and the Dyson Hot and Cool AM05 (£340).
Both are cheaper than the new Dyson Pure Hot and Cool, but they lack any air purifying features.
Stylistically, all three fan heaters look the same, and they also have a remote control, as well as an oscillating function so it rotates rather than blowing air in one direction.
