Almost perfect, works for us :) Mobile and efficient
I received this unit 18th June, as a part of an Ambassador review program.
Yes, the packaging is exceptionally good but its what’s inside I love. My husband and I live fulltime in our home (with two small dogs). I've suffered from many allergies over the years mainly skin related problems we also have daughters who suffer different complaints, one suffers badly from Eczema, the other is a borderline asthmatic, we regularly try things to reduce these issues (sometimes without success) but this machine looks promising.
Assembly was easy enough...once we got all the components out of the box (they were housed in very tightly) to ensure they were not damaged or lost in transit no doubt. The scan or QR coded instruction manual, maintenance and registration was outlined on a hard to miss bright yellow card. I only registered the appliance to use the phone controls a few days prior to completing this review and found it very easy. An analysis of our electricity bills (which I’m able to do online with my current provider), gave me a daily cost breakdown, allowing me to consider the running cost of the Dyson product. We started using it in winter (this year a bit colder than last). I must admit we’ve been heavy users of the Dyson heater/cooler + purifier, much more than we would normally have used the split air or the other small electric fan heater (which had we been using would probably have had the same or greater cost impact on our bill). Each households’ tariffs differ depending on provider, daily usage charges and consumption plus other factors such as if you have solar to reduce the costs. Our provider has us on a plan offering negligible savings for our solar off-set so we intend to change. Having said this, the increase to our bill was outweighed by the convenience of having the heat where & when we wanted immediately. We expect running costs will improve as the days get longer and the solar becomes more cost effective, it probably cost us equivalent to a small cup of bought coffee a day, I guess the cooling function in the summer may not cost as much either, yes, I tried out the cool air function but it’s hard to assess how good it is when the heating function is what you really want to use this time of year, I think it will work at least as good as any other fan. Not being an early adapter to technology I was surprised I could do it all without my husband needing to ‘Help me out’. I downloaded the app onto my phone after reading/watching a video on the Dyson website, it all came together relatively easily in around 15 minutes with a few hurdles sorting out the connectivity to my phone, I had a few failed attempts. NOTE: prepare by having Wi-Fi password at hand & both blue tooth and Wi-Fi setting on your mobile turned on (taking my phone cover off also helped connection to the device), holding it exactly in the position shown on the diagram (hovering over the on/off slightly tilted). After I connected my phone app, all sorts of exciting options opened to me: - timer, night mode, airflow direction & oscillation apart from the basic expectations of on/off, cooling, heating, fan speed and auto plus the amazing Air Quality Index, which shows both the air quality outdoors where you live and offers comparison to that of the inside your home. One thing that confuses me. While setting it up, it asks what room you’re in (this is so the device can evaluate that nominated rooms AQI). I have not yet worked out how to nominate another/other rooms when I take it around the house or swap it to another house and I wonder if I’ve missed something that allows me to do this, or perhaps is it supposed to stay in only one space?

A premium purifier that is stylish with quick and efficient heating
Opening up the box, it is great to see that Dyson uses only cardboard to protect the purifier but there is still a plastic that encases the purifier. It would be great if the plastic could be reduced so that its better for the environment. The HEPA and carbon filters were very easy to install without having to read the manuals, plus the instructions were very clear on the sticker on the front of the purifier. Remember to peel it off before you use it ;-)
Although the purifier is made of plastic, it feels solid and is light enough to move...
WOW exceeded expectations
We have been using this purifier in the house for 4 weeks now. Unboxing and getting it up and running was a simple task. The sound from the fan is minimal so it doesn't interrupt sleep. The app is great and gives an array of information that I found quite fascinating. It's been quite an eye opener, I am absolutely amazed at what the filters have accumulated. I suffer from hay fever and it has been considerably better over the weeks of using the purifier, so much so, that I haven't had to take medication. It's a very modern stylish unit to look ...at and I'm sure in summer it would be great as a fan. The heater component is very efficient, my only concern would be how much electricity it consumes, like any fan heater. It's main purpose is to purify the air and that it does extremely well. I feel it's very good value for money especially for those that suffer asthma and hayfever.
Great for Asthma Sufferers
Unboxing – comes with filters uninstalled (2x replaceable HEPA 13 particle/ carbon filter and 2 x lifetime catalyst filters.) There are front and rear filter covers which are released by pressing on tabs. The filters easily clip into place- one particle filter into each removed cover and the catalyst (metal) filters onto the actual purifier. There’s a diagram (sticker) on the purifier which gives a basic picture of how to install them.
There is no detailed instructions booklet supplied. That can be accessed by the Dyson Link phone app or on th...eir website. See here https://www.dyson.com.au/products/air-treatment/purifiers/dyson-purifier-hot-cool-formaldehyde/owners-guide? You do get a short pamphlet showing the filter installation, remote control operation, how to turn it on, how to connect it to the Dyson Link app and tips on the best place to locate the purifier. The full operation manual can be accessed on the Dyson Link app or Dyson’s website. There is only a power button and small colour display on the front of the purifier. The supplied infrared remote control, phone app or voice controls (via Amazon’s Alexa / Google Home) must be used to operate the various settings and modes. To control the purifier (via your phone) you need to initially connect to it to your phone’s Bluetooth using the Dyson Link app. That app then sets up the purifier to operate via your home WiFi. People who aren’t tech savvy can simply use the supplied remote control to operate it combined with using the screen on the purifier’s base. The phone app is definitely my “goto” for controlling it. It’s well sorted and provides a vast array of air quality data – for both inside your house and also for your set suburb (this appears to be data from government monitoring stations.)

Great machine which does all it claims
The Dyson is an excellent fan. I have wanted one of these fans for some time so I was very excited to open the box in my home. I just love the modern and stylish look of this machine. This is one feature you can’t beat.
It is a great fan being very safe around the grandchildren. It is also extremely easy to clean. Anyone having cleaned a regular floor fan before will appreciate that this is no small advantage.
This model has cooling and heating. It must be noted that it is not an air conditioner so only blows around the current air. This does...

I want one for every room!!!!
I am in love with the Dyson Purifier hot + cool. Honestly didn't think it would be as good as it is. Love that you can rotate it upto 310 degrees and that you can tilt it so that the air goes more towards your face. The colour matches my personal style. And it takes up no room. Running it on high speed it's a little loud but still not any louder then a standard pedal stool fan on its second speed. I love using the app and seeing what's going on with the air quality. At first it was green all day and I thought oh so it is a waste, however I was ...doing my nails about 10 meters from the Dyson and it spiked into the red when the acetone was being used. Also when the deep fryer came on, it was at the highest it could go. So we are going to buy a air fryer to see if that helps. My downside is the cost. It's not cheap at all. However having a child with asthma I would recommend this to anyone. I would love one in every room.

Great heater and air purifier
I’ve been using my Dyson Purifier Hot and Cold formaldehyde for 2 weeks now and I’m very impressed. Straight out of the box, this air purifier has the signature Dyson look and feel about it. I can’t really explain it but in a word, it just feels like quality to the touch and l think it would look nice in any home.
Getting the air purifier unpacked and assembled was easy, only needing to install the filters and covers. There are some very basic and easy to understand instructions included in the box. The instructions didn’t go in to too much de...tail about air purification, particles and formaldehyde etc. I was a little disappointed at first about the minimal information but once I connected to the app, I found that the app gives simple and clear information to explain the air quality and what it is measuring. The app was very easy to set up. I have many smart devices in my home and this was by far one of the easiest to get connected. I could then link the Dyson service to my google assistant and control the air purifier through google assistant. You can control the temperature, fan speed and oscillation of the purifier using the remote and also the app which is nice. You can set it at 45, 90, 180 and 350 degrees which is great for giving you choice in where to place the unit. You can use it with heat, cool air or on I like that the remote control attaches to the top of the unit via magnets so I should not lose it.

The Dyson HP09 is a stylish addition to our home heating equipment, quietly working away in the corner keeping us warm and cozy without the noisy rattle of traditional fan heaters. Even on max speed it is hardly noticeable in the corner of the room and easily heats our 40sqm kitchen/living room area.
Unpacking and assembling the HP09 was a simple process and it was truly a joy to see hardly any plastic used for packing materials. There was no environmentally unfriendly annoying polystyrene to fill up our rubbish bin.

Amazing machine and clearly a Dyson
The Dyson HP09 is a domestic sized air purifier that also provides heating and fan-cooling with autonomous operation and wireless remote control. It stands about 70cm high in white, gold and steel colors which look satisfyingly good.
The unit actively rotates about its base and is easiest to move around from room to room when holding it by the top, the bladeless fan portion. Its not overly heavy but can be cumbersome to hold.
It comes almost fully assembled, all you have to do is clip in the filters and grilles. This is Mr Dyson's way of teachi...

- Ambassador Review
Has Dyson done it again? Unfortunately not!
I got the ‘Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool Formaldehyde’ air purifier/heater/cooling device for free to test. Anyone who has read my reviews will notice that if it’s good, I’ll say so. If it’s not good, I’ll be just as straight with you.
When I was offered to review the Dyson, my first thought was “I could have used the air purifier during the recent bush fire season”. But like my dad used to say: “Better late than never!”
I already have the Dyson Outsize vacuum cleaner which is fantastic. I use it daily. With two fluffy cats, it's a must-have! It wo...rks really well and has never failed. I was expecting similar engineering magic with this device, especially since it costs $999. Anyone who was around in the 1970’s would have heard about formaldehyde. Formaldehyde was a chemical widely used in particle board, glue and many other products. Formaldehyde has been proven to cause headaches, nausea, skin irritation and, in the worst case, cancer. Dyson has created an air purifier that not only removes dust and allergens but also ‘destroys formaldehyde’ if present in the air. This is great news as furniture often releases formaldehyde years after it’s been made. Although formaldehyde is banned in particle wood (at least in Europe), some countries still use it. So, this feature will be of great use to those who want allergens and toxins removed from the air. So, let’s go through the unit step by step. It’s an air purifier/heater/cooling device. The unit captures 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns, it meets HEPA H13 standard, destroys formaldehyde, it can rotate, it has a remote control, can be connected to your phone via Wi-Fi and it reports on air quality in your room on an app that you can download (it has a screen on the unit as well but I’ll get to that later). Apparently, it can purify the air in a room of up to 81m3 and heat a room of 35m3. The list of things that this device can do is outstanding. Did I say, the price is $999. Replacement filters cost $99.

Questions & Answers
Can you run night mode on the heating setting? Can you reverse the airflow on the heating setting? I have this product and cannot do either.
Yes, you can certainly run night mode on the heating setting. The heater stays on, the LCD seems to dim a bit and the moon symbol appears on the LCD. Reversing on the heating setting seems to switch to cooling and reverses the air flow.
Hi DNR, sorry I haven't answered more quickly. domw is correct with the response already given. The night mode does allow for the heating and cooling settings to be used, changes over the airflow direction but if you use the higher level airflow outlet it changes from heating to cooling. If yours doesn't do this perhaps a call to customer service would be helpful. Be prepared to wait atm though they probably don't have full staff working (my call took around 20 minutes last week, 15 mins on hold but worth the wait the lady I spoke with was very good) Hope this is helpful.
While you can run the machine in night mode while heating, the display will dim but not completely turn off.
In terms of diffusing the airflow backwards, this is only available when the heater is not in use - heated air can't be diffused backwards.

The Dyson Purifier Formaldehyde Range detects formaldehyde in the air 500 times smaller than particles the size of 0.1 microns. that’s often found in new furniture, paint, glue, wallpaper and household cleaning products.
How does it work?
A solid-state formaldehyde sensor uses an electro-chemical cell to detect formaldehyde in the air. The special formaldehyde filter - the Selective Catalytic Oxidisation filter - then works to destroy formaldehyde, turning it into harmless water and carbon dioxide.
The formaldehyde filter is a lifetime filter, so it won’t need to be replaced for the life of the machine.
- Dyson's latest air purifier has the ability to heat, cool and purify a room.
- A HEPA H13 standard filter captures 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 microns, including allergens, bacteria, pollen and mould spores.
- Designed with standard features of previous Dyson purifier models, including Auto mode for the heating function, Air Multiple technology for wide air circulation, Night time, Sleep time mode, and the ability to be operated using either a remote control or the Dyson Link App.
- Voice control using Google Home, Alexa or Siri is also available with a compatible smart device.
Points of praise
- This 3-in-1 fan, heater and air purifier provided fast and effective air circulation. Multiple reviewers happily reported that it was powerful enough to be used in place of a reliable split system AC and even a ducted AC system in a small zone.
- This Dyson model made a room nice and toasty warm within minutes. It worked well even in rooms that were naturally chilly or had poor insulation.
- Ease of use was generally reported to be good, with the app being easy to navigate. It was also considered easy to change filters.
- The air purifying function was appreciated by reviewers who had household members with allergies and other respiratory issues. They observed a noticeable improvement in breathability in a room after the Dyson was used.
- The unit is highly portable and easy to carry between different rooms in the house.
Points to consider
- The expensive purchase price of the unit ($999) was noted by reviewers, and it often docked at least a star from individual ratings. While it was acknowledged that this fan heater and purifier performs 3 functions, the asking price was still considered to be out of many people’s budgets.
- It was also noted that purchasing new filters represents an additional ongoing cost.
- A number of reviewers reported that the fan heater could be too loud, especially if used on a high setting.
- Not many people really knew if the formaldehyde-capturing function was working, but commented that it sounds like it can only be a positive addition to the machine, after researching the benefits.
