Dyson’s Pure Cool Link – Product Review
The pollution inside your home is just as damaging to your body as the pollution outside, and if you suffer from allergies you might not be aware of the allergens in your house. The second generation of Dyson’s Pure Cool is basically the same reliable unit as the first but with a little more bells and whistles.
The Pure Cool Link is both an air cooler and an air purifier. The “Link” aspect of this next gen unit allows for a free downloadable app that lets you view your connected devices and see the history of the air quality in your home as well as the quality of the air outside. The latest technology is used in this app and that, combined with the Dyson machine, provides a system that works together for healthier and more comfortable air in your home.
The remote control has been updated from the first generation of Pure Cool units, specifically with the addition of a “night-time mode.” When this is pressed the light on the machine will be dimmed and the quietest settings will be used. There is also a sleep timer so users can instruct the machine to turn off anywhere from 15 minutes to 9 hours later. The AUTO mode lets the machine monitor and work according to the information it finds inside the room. Of course, there are the usual buttons that allow users to manually adjust the machine, the amount of airflow and oscillation.
So, what is the benefit of the “link” element of this machine if the first generation was so great? It’s simply the fact that it allows users to see the situation inside their house from their smart phone and all the settings on the machine. Users can control the unit with this app. They can also see when the unit was active during the day when the machine is set on AUTO.
Besides being an air purifier, the Pure Cool Link is an air cooler. With no blades and a smooth airflow, the air maintains a constant cooling flow, which in the heat of the summer is a bonus. This is an all-year machine that is meant to make you more comfortable in your house.
As a purifier, it removes 99.97% of particles that can cause allergies and discomfort for those of us with health issues. Even if you don’t have asthma, allergies, or other known health problems, having clean air inside your house is beneficial to your heart, lungs, nose, and entire body. Think of the air pollution outside and remember you are living with as much unseen air pollution inside your home. We have done a lot to clean the air we breathe outside but haven’t paid much attention to the air we breathe inside.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link automatically monitors your room, adjusts itself to react to the air ingredients (yes, they are ingredients) and purifies the air. It turns itself on when needed and stops when the air is clean.
The Dyson Pure Cool Link Tower comes with a 2-year warranty. The machine is available in either an iron grey with blue or white with silver. It’s safe to have around kids because there are no blades to worry about. It’s easy to clean and additional Glass HEPA filters are available to purchase when needed.
This is an important machine to use in a nursery or child’s room. Who wants their kids sleeping in dirty air? And of course, everyone will benefit from sleeping in bedroom with cleaner air. On a personal note, I have been using the Dyson Pure Cool for a while and honestly notice a difference in my sinus problems. I do not wake up with a stuffy nose and as a user of this machine I can highly recommend it.
