Okay! Does it purify the air?
Now lets talk about the main job of the Dyson Hot and cold purifier – Cleaning up the air.
Dyson claims that its purifier removes 99.5% of the harmful particles in the air as small as 0.1 microns. Well, it is difficult to verify the claim without testing instruments, but I could feel the air quality improved significantly after using the air purifier.
My wife has a chronic cough that gets worse during October, November, and December due to increased pollution and change in weather. I have been using different air purifiers for the last 3 years to mitigate the impact of pollution on her health, and I found Dyson quite effective. Yes, it was definitely much better than the purifiers which cost around Rs 7,000 and had the edge over competitors in its price range with added functionality.
I even found that the noise on the fan was not loud to disturb my sleep.
