Apparently navigating those trade-offs haven’t affected the Pure Hot+Cool Link’s effectiveness; Dyson claims it will remove 99.97 percent of particles-think pollen, mold, air pollution-in its given location, all while keeping hot days cool and cold days comfortable. To do so, it uses a 360-degree Glass HEPA filter, which combines borosilicate microfibers, carbon granules and a perforated acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) shroud to filter the air.
The Pure Cool Link was the first of the Link devices released by Dyson. It has some built-in smarts and can adjust the airflow automatically depending on the air quality in the room. If you have to be more responsible about your energy usage, however, you can activate an auto mode where the purifier only activates when it detects a decrease in air quality.
The company on Tuesday unveiled the “Pure Hot+Cool Link” purifier heater, which offers “intelligent” air purification all year round, plus “fast heating in winter” and “powerful personal cooling in summer”.
Just a couple of months after the release of their Pure Cool Link, a fan and an air purifier in one, the company is launching their new device that, in addition to the fan and the air purifier, it also comes with a heater. A sleep timer, meanwhile, allows users to set intervals for the device to run, ranging from 15 minutes to 9 hours. The new device starts hitting U.S. retailers on September 18, priced at $100 above the larger Pure Cool Link tower. There’s no word yet on when or if it will be made available in other countries.
