They’ve done it again with the Dyson pure cool!
Technology is moving so fast now that it can be bewildering, but there we are. The new Dyson Pure Cool Link isn’t just an air-mover; this tall attractive machine cleans the air, monitors it and adjusts itself to the requirements of the room.
Product: Dyson Pure Cool Link
Price: $499.99 or less
Verdict: just WOW
It’s designed for year-round use as a purifier, and in summer it cools you as well with air movement using the same Air Multiplier bladeless method as their other fans – the technology they are known for.
What’s Different With Dyson Pure Cool Link Tower?
The Pure Cool Link tower sucks air into the base, purifies it with a cylindrical HEPA filter removing 99.7% of airborne contaminants as small as 0.3 microns in the room.
Once filtered, the air is moved up into the fin and then expelled, projecting the cleaned air back into the room. Virtually silent when on “purify,” the Pure Cool Link operates with minimal noise at the lowest setting and not too intrusive at higher speeds.
We’re excited about this unit – it’s more than a fan, it cleans the air.
Besides all of that, it has its own smartphone App to keep you apprised of how the quality is, even keeping a history for you. It also has a regular remote, for those of us who aren’t smartphone users.
The remote is outfitted with a magnet so you can attach it to the top of the unit when not needed.
Specifications of the Dyson Pure Cool Link tower
- Dimensions: 7.5″ deep x 4.3″ wide x 40″ tall
- Weight: 8.4 pounds
- Power source: electric
- Cord length: 6.6 feet
- Connectivity: smartphone Dyson Link App (iOS and Android only)
- Remote: yes (you don’t have to have the app)

This unit will effectively monitor the air in the room where it stands. It won’t do the whole house, but you can move it around easily at only 8.4 pounds.
Some users have moved it from bedroom to office to basement to nursery as needed. Having one for each room would be expensive, but fantastic if it’s affordable for you.

Pure Cool Link Apps – The future of home climate control?
The Dyson Pure Cool Link is the latest feat of human innovation to come out of the Dyson research labs. To have a quiet, intelligent machine to keep your air quality assessed and improved is something I’d never have imagined.
It has no blades, so it’s easy to clean (wipe with a cloth) and you needn’t mess with a metal grill to do so. It comes in silver or blue, and the remote sticks on the top with a magnet when not in use.
The Dyson Link App is a little sketchy according to some users, not always keeping track, and has some bugs to work out yet. It is currently only available for iOS (Apple iPhones) and Androids. No doubt that will iron itself out; like other smart-home things do.
I personally wouldn’t use the App, as I’m still a ‘beginner’ with my Android, so the “old-fashioned” digital remote will do what I need.
Thoughts on the Dyson Pure Cool Link tower
- Noise: Quiet-Mark certified; silent in purify mode (night-time mode even dims the lights for you).
- Warranty: Comes with a 2-year warranty and promises a lifetime of support even after that.
- Usability: The pure cool link has multiple uses, on an air purifier that doubles as a cooling fan in summer
- Connectivity still iffy. Some had trouble figuring out how to get and apply the Dyson App.
- The filter is disposable, not washable, the hermetically sealed glass HEPA filter should be replaced every year.
I don’t know how much the operation would suffer if one neglects to replace the filter as recommended, it’s a brand new product.
Keep in mind that other air-purifiers that use disposable or washable filters can also release pollutants back into the air. This one won’t – it will trap them forever. Mwahahahahaaa!
My Thoughts and Score:
Dyson Pure Cool Review
Dyson Pure Cool Link tower score - 9/10
It's expensive, and the filters are also pretty pricey; the App still needs some tweaking, but the initial roll-out has been well-received. Personally, I don't need an App to be satisfied, and I'm sure that is part of the high price.
Some were concerned that eventually, they'd stop making the filters, which would result in reduced longevity of the machine. We can only hope that doesn't happen; Dyson has been around for a long time. Like discontinued car models, surely someone would offer up OEM aftermarket parts. Wouldn't they?
As time passes, we shall see what else Dyson has up its sleeve. Give it a try if you have allergies or smelly pets or smokers or mold or pollen (all houses have mold and pollen gets in no matter what).
Cool new gadget/home appliance, but costs as much as any home appliance. More than just a fan, to be sure.
