Dyson has not only told his fans about cooling (or heating), but has also focused on keeping his internal environment clean and healthy for air purification. What sets the company’s products apart from the competition is the quality of the sensor, which tells you what’s dirtying your air and controls purification automatically. Today, the company adds a new sensor with Dyson Purifier Hot + Cool formaldehyde.
As you can probably tell from the name, the new product has a formaldehyde sensor. Formaldehyde is a gas pollutant that can be released from furniture and wood products containing formaldehyde-based resins, including plywood and fiberboard. This gas can be found in insulation, paint, varnishes and even household cleaning products.
Formaldehyde can be released into the air through a process called off-gasping, which is the continuous release of gas into the air.
How is formaldehyde detected?
With the new purifier hot + cool formaldehyde, Dyson has a new solid solid-state formaldehyde sensor. Typically, formaldehyde was detected with gel-based sensors, which could dry up over time. With the solid-state model, Dyson states that its sensor lifetime will be pure.
With this sensor, the purifier can automatically adjust the fan speed to clean the air of the purifier, capturing it into the purifier’s filter, without any user intervention. You can also see the current state of your wind using the screen in front of the fan.
What else can a fan do?
Along with the formaldehyde sensor, the Dyson Purifier Hot + Cool formaldehyde also has a regular volatile organic compound (VOC) sensor to detect other harmful gases, and a particulate matter sensor (PM) that will show small particles in the air. . With previous fans, such as Pure Cool Tower, sensors can be used to control purification automatically.
The model is also an electric heater, capable of keeping you warm during the cold months, with complete scheduling and temperature control. And, you can control the fan through the Dyson Link app and the Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant skills.
The Dyson Purifier Hot + Cool formaldehyde is now available for £ 599, and joins two products that include formaldehyde sensors, the new Purefire Hot + Cool (£ 549) and the Perfier Cool (£ 499). All three new products are designed to be 20% quieter and feature a new HEPA filtration system that produces 99.95% particles as small as 0.1 micron. Look for our full review soon.
