March, when pollinosis peaks with the arrival of spring. Since the onset has occurred in the last few years, the healthy spring in my life is longer, and I am actively taking various measures to recover the condition at that time.
This time I tried Dyson's fan heater with air purifying function "Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link". The air purifier that I have been using for a long time at home has stopped functioning, so it is now the most promising candidate for replacement.
The latest model announced in the spring of 2017 is equipped with an evolved filter that captures harmful gases such as formaldehyde and benzene, and even odors in the house, in addition to ultrafine particles of PM0.1 level. By amplifying and sending out the surrounding air, the wind is efficiently circulated throughout the room.
The reference retail price is about 70,000 yen. In addition, there are models that do not have a heater and only have a fan, but none of them can be used only with the air purifying function, and are characterized by the fact that they are accompanied by ventilation.
Feel the beautiful air!There is no complaint about the air purifying function that I expected most. Even if you suffer from runny nose or itchy eyes indoors, it will go away after a while (the standard time to wash 8 tatami mats is about 30 minutes). Even a family member who spends most of the year with allergies said, "I want to live by breathing only Dyson's air ." * It is just an individual impression
The app is convenientThe product can be linked with your smartphone via Wi-Fi. The dedicated app supports checking the room temperature and air pollution, operating the main unit, and setting timers. You can also operate and schedule from outside, so if you operate it before returning home, you can return to a room with warm and clean air.
By the way, the attached remote control is quite abstract, so it's easier to understand if you operate it with the app.
The heater is normalIn the warm air mode, the target room temperature can be set in 1 degree increments, and wide, focus and range can be specified according to the scene. It doesn't have the power to heat up quickly, but like a typical fan heater, it warms up the entire room after a certain amount of time. Since the air also dries, it is recommended to use it with a humidifier in the middle of winter.
Is operating noise and maintenance costs a bottleneck?The only thing I was interested in was the operating sound. If the air volume is set to medium or higher, a clear blowing sound will be heard. It doesn't bother me in my daily life, but if you want to use it in the bedroom, you may want to drive well before going to bed and then reduce the air volume. By the way, there is also a night mode that makes the display darker.
The usual maintenance is to remove dust from the main body, so there is almost no cleaning, but since the filter cannot be cleaned, it needs to be replaced about once a year (using the replacement sign as a guide). The price of the filter is 6,000 yen (excluding tax) on the official website, and how to understand this maintenance cost is likely to be one of the factors to consider.
