Wasn’t for Us
We purchased this fan from Jb Hi Fi. It came highly recommended. When purchasing the fan we indicated that we wanted an extra heat source for an on-site caravan but more specifically to keep our kids room warm in the annexe. Unfortunately it really struggled to heat the room. It was used for 4 days and struggled to lift to room temperature I also didn’t notice any difference in the air quality. I was pretty disappointed considering the price and for the amount of money we spent we are better off getting a small split system installed. We have now returned this item.

Poor quality control on product
If the product worked as described it would be great.
Unfortunately, we’ve had nothing but issues. Our machine has been replaced twice now for different faults - we thought “third time lucky”... unfortunately that wasn’t the case and now we are getting a refund. If you’ve got time to constantly call centre support and drive around getting the models replaced this is for you. Otherwise don’t waste your money.

Really happy with my Dyson purchase. It looks great and does the job much better than any other heater I've had. I'd certainly recommend this product even though they're not cheap.
I waited several days for the purifier after ordering the product directly from Dyson over the phone. The phone order itself took 3 hours because the sales representation claimed the system was down. The purifier arrived, and as soon as I plugged it in and turned it on, there was a burning smell coming out of it and the purifier stopped working with a triangle sign and exclamation mark. After that, the machine won't work. This has been extremely disappointing and frustrating because it's meant to be a new one, yet Dyson sent me a faulty purifie...r. I have wasted a lot of time so far on this product, and now I have to waste more time by taking it back to the post office to get it shipped back to Dyson and wait even longer to get my money back. Ordering directly from Dyson has been a big mistake, and it's better to buy products from the retailers for better service. It has been very disappointing that for such an expensive product, Dyson sent a faulty one and caused me great inconvenience.

Grinding noise when changing airflow direction from back to front
I expect a smoother mechanical for a super expensive appliance.
This is the second unit i have exchanged. Disturbing noise got better but still persist.
It maybe a common issue with this model.
Not sure how it passed the test.

Perfect for Heating small rooms and purification
Really satisfied with the dyson, it looks and works real good. The heating of a small room is pretty quick and the fan speed is good too. The dyson link app is fantastic.

Waste of money, absolutely tragic purchase
Worked well for about a month, then just refused to work again. I know it’s under warranty but seriously why do we have to pay almost a thousand dollars to have to chase our tails to get satisfaction. I will never buy another Dyson product. This one will be in the appliance graveyard.

Faulty on arrival. Very disappointed!!
Purchased the HP04 from Harvey Norman online. I received the product after 20 days and switched it on yesterday. The unit seems to have a problem with the fan. When in auto mode and the set temperature is above the room temperature the fan works fine. However, when it reaches the set temperature, the fan speed just drops completely that unless you put your hand in front of the vent you can't feel the breeze. Pushing the fan speed up using the remote control results in the fan speed number on the display panel going up (even up to 10) but there ...is no change in the fan speed. I got in touch with Dyson support and was told that they would open a service ticket. I have to now pack the unit back into the box, print and put the return label on it and drop it off at AusPost and then wait for them to fix the problem and send me the unit back (no ETA provided). Usually people spend the additional dollar for quality and piece of mind and this experience doesn't sound anywhere close to it for the premium price paid. 100% failure rate. In hindsight I would rather return this and get 5 units from Kogan that would all work well with 100% success rate.

Good product but with a caution with reliability
We got these at the height of bushfire in Victoria, unfortunately there were major backlog, meaning we only got these in early February. We tested the product in the kitchen, yes it does purify the air quickly as advertised. We were able to control the product over the Internet which is a neat feature. The filter has a long life compared to others in the market. The product was good, so we recommend our family getting one. They waited as long getting one given the backlog, and when it arrived the product was a Dead on Arrival (DOA.) They went t...o Dyson and they were very helpful in exchanging for a new one, although they had to wait again. Once arrived the second one worked as advertised. The other complain is, as with most Dyson products, the price. But as I said, you are paying for their cutting edge engineering and design... there's a reason why their products are very sought after all over the world!

Terrible airflow for a hugely expensive item
I eventually plucked up the courage to spend a crazy amount on the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool fan after the recent Bushfires.
I must say that I am REALLY disappointed with the product. It performs its core function of blowing air very poorly. Even on the top speeds of 8-10, the airflow is much worse than the $15 Target fan we were using before and which we have started using again. It does little to cool us down even though the unit is sitting at the foot of our bed. It will be of little or no use in a large family room. At the moment, it is an extre...mely overpriced air purifier. It does have excellent functions such as an app, air purifier, timer etc and is simple to use but I think that Dyson have focused too heavily on all the gimmicks and have forgotten about its core function, blowing air. We will be returning it this week.

LCD Screen Displays a Triangle with an Exclamation Mark After 1 Use
Received this air purifier 2 days ago and first time testing, it worked fine. The next day, turned the fan on, it oscilated but there was no air flow at any speed. After 5 seconds, the fan stopped all together and an exclamation mark appeared on the LCD screen. Contacted dyson customer service and she was very helpful, within minutes she sent me instructions and ‘paid returned parcel post’ to send to sydney for their technicians to have a look at. Very disappointed with Qantas store where i bought this product from, i was asked to wait for 3 to 5 business days just to receive the ‘paid returned parcel post’. Not to mention, a month long of waiting time for the product to be delivered at my place.

Broken after one day
I’m really disappointed. Our machine is not working after being used for one day. When I turn the machine on after a few seconds it shows a triangle with exclamation mark. I have tried contacting Dyson to work out how to fix this and they have not yet responded.

A dust-free alternative to traditional fans
I'm the kind of person who, for many years, has found it impossible to sleep without the fan on at night time for two reasons: 1) I get excessively hot, and 2) I find the white noise of the fan very soothing. And so my metal floor fan is switched on pretty much 24-7, only getting switched off when I'm not home. This presents two issues: the fan generates A LOT of dust. All over the front and back of the fan; the blades; the motor; and then, all over my belongings. I find this extremely annoying as 1) it's messy and difficult to clean, and 2) I ...have suffered from allergies and hayfever all my life. The dust in the room doesn't help, clogs up my sinuses and often makes my eyes feel itchy, even when I've expended my best efforts to keep the fan less dusty; it's difficult because I use it so frequently. When the opportunity to review the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool arose, I was excited and intrigued. The design itself is appealing to me, different and interesting, and looks great in the setting of a modern home. I was particularly intrigued by the function of the fan itself (it is bladeless) and hopeful it would generate much less dust than my older fan. Unboxing and assembly was fairly simple, with clear instructions provided. Once set up, flipping between the modes was easy although I was only interested in one (cool, as I live in hot, sweaty, muggy Brisbane). I was pleasantly suprised by the strength of air generated by the unit. I use a high-velocity, metal-bladed floor fan and am used to having it on at full-force. The Dyson is just as satisfying and was able to cool my room down easily, and aid in getting me to sleep. It DOES generate noise, though no more than my other fan and I actually find the noise to be a plus, as I am comforted by the white noise while falling asleep. Since using the Dyson over the last few weeks, I have noticed far less dust in my room and on my belongings, particularly electronics in the bedroom. Certainly not the thick clumps of sticky dust that seem to attach themselves to my traditional fan. I find the device fairly easy to clean (I just run a slightly damp cloth over the exterior) and feel comforted by the knowledge that I'm no longer surrounded by, and inhaling, plumes of dust every night. I would reccomend this product if you need a fan but suffer from respiratory/health issues exacerbated by excess dust. There is absolutely far less dust in my room now which is wonderful not only for cleaning, but also because I know I'm no longer breathing it in or getting it in my eyes. Cons? The price. This is not an inexpensive item. It does the job for cooling (and I look forward to testing out the heating function more in the mild Brisbane winter) and absolutely does generate less dust than a traditional fan, so that makes it an appealing product for those in need of cleaner air during the night time.
I wish I'd bought a cheaper air purifier and a fan
I bought the latest model (v4 I think) for $899 from Harvey Norman in December 2019 to deal with bushfire smoke in Sydney. Beware: there are many paid reviews online.
Pros: seems to clean the air well inside our bedroom.
Cons (much of this is shaped by the cost of the machine):
- Fan does not work as well, and is significantly noisier than our $10-$30 pedestal fans at any speed above 2.
- Even at 10, the fan is about as strong as our pedestal fans on low.
- Separately, the machine intermittently makes a high pitched grinding / whirring noise. Turning it off at the power point usually gets rid of it, but then it returns in a day or so.

An excellent air purifier & fan/heater that makes a difference. However high price, & questionable support are concerns.

Questions & Answers
My Dyson put hot + cool HP04 is 12 months old , it now keeps turning off & showing caution symbol.
Contact Dyson since you still have the warranty. It happened to me twice even with the brand new replacement. But don’t expect quick response from them, It took me 2 months. I just got the third machine yesterday, I am going to try it on today. Hopefully, it works. Otherwise I have to do this process all over again. Lose trust on them now.
This is certainly not what we'd expect from a Dyson Pure Hot+Cool and we are happy to help get this sorted.

Thanks for answering, this heater was bought through a Hervey Norman store I’ll Australia. Can you help in rectifying the problem of it shutting down all the time when set on heat of 23 deg C and showing a caution symbol.
We’ve had our Dyson pure hot + cool for about 2 weeks and it’s started to become jerky when oscillating. It will be smooth in one direction, then jerky when it reaches the end of the other direction. Any ideas on how to fix?

Hi, I have mine for a year without major issue and then very suddenly it stops working with exclamation mark inside a triangle. I have tried reset, unplug, clean sensors, but it still refuses to go pass 2 seconds before the triangle error returns. Any possible explanation for that?
The exclamation mark screen is indicating the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool isn't able to follow the last directive it received, or something is not quite right within the machine.
