Living in a city like Delhi has its advantages, but it is one of the most polluted cities across the world. While people have got used to pollution and continue with their daily lives, it is quite harmful to the human body. While many would argue that they mostly live indoors, which is why their exposure to pollutants is minimal, this is far from true.

Indoor pollution is a very serious issue these days. Due to air circulation, the level of pollutants is quite high even indoors and it is recommended for you to own an air purifier in your home or office for a healthier living environment.

The base has two slide-off grilles, inside which you place the air filter units. The mesh-like grille ensures adequate airflow and acts as a deterrent to some pollutants. Just above the grilles, you get to see a color display that displays air quality details and other basic controls. The display and bladeless fan design, while dated, don’t encourage eye fatigue and still manage to look to the future. I personally would have preferred a bigger display with more details.

The unit only has a power button, and you’ll need to reach for the remote control to do anything. You can also control the device using the Dyson Link app, which manages to get the job done, and offers slightly more granular controls than the remote.

One of the key features of the Dyson Purifier Hot + Cool (HP07) other than air purification is that it doubles as a heater for cold winters. The heating function works very well and easily regulates the temperature of the room, while at the same time purifying the air inside. I found the heater to be very handy, and well worth the extra money, considering it saves space and electricity.

The bladeless design appears to be extremely efficient, considering that the fan works almost silently, while spraying lots of pure air your way. According to device readings, it managed to bring down pollution levels from 600 to 50 within 15 minutes of operation in a medium-sized room, all of which can be attributed to the airflow rate. The fan speed can be controlled along with the direction of the throw.

The filter used inside the HP07 meets the HEPA H13 standard and can capture the H1N1 virus with 99.95 percent of particles as small as 0.1 microns. Apart from this, the company claims that the HP07 is a fully sealed machine, which does not allow any dirty air to bypass the filter and return to the room.

Comparatively running my Xiaomi air purifier, the quality difference is evident when we move to another corner of the room.

One cool feature that I really liked about the air purifier is that it reports air quality on a real-time basis. Along with overall air quality information, the air purifier allows users to get other real-time updates such as PM 2.5 and PM10 levels, humidity levels, VOC levels and much more.
