Summary

The Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool HP07 is a 3-in-1 unit that heats, cools, and purifies the air. It’s similar to its HP04 predecessor in many ways, but does improve upon the design with a now HEPA 13 fully sealed system. Dyson’s internal testing showed the HP07 is capable of heating a room 376 square feet and purifing spaces up to 871 square feet. The HP07 has all of the standard Dyson features including connecting to the Dyson link app, 350 degrees of oscillation, remote control, and intuitive sensor display. It’s a solid step up for Dyson’s Hot+Cool lineup.

Dyson HP07 Design

Just like its sibling, the HP04, the HP07 is a medium height air purifier with a large circular airflow amp resting on a narrow base.

Available in two color schemes, white/silver and black/nickel.

NOTE – The Dyson HP04 functions as a heater and as a cooling fan, depending on which mode it is set on.

The Base

The base hosts the filters and an LCD screen for air quality and status information

The Amp

The amp is the stand-out feature with its open design that allows air to be drawn in, cleaned by the filters, and pushed outwards.

The Controls

You can operate the Dyson HP07 using the:

  • Display Screen/Physical Unit (limited options)
  • Remote Control
  • Dyson Link App
  • Smart Home Connection

1) Display Screen/Physical Unit

A display screen that provides real-time information on air quality, humidity, temperature, and various pollutant readings.

Find readings on the LCD screen on the base for:
  • Current air quality
  • Humidity
  • Temperature
  • Particulate matter, VOCs, and formaldehyde readings
  • Remaining filter life

2) Remote

A magnetized, curved remote control that houses an array of functions such as turning the unit on/off, adjusting oscillation rotation, fan speed, and more.

With the physical remote you can:

  • Turn your unit on or off
  • Turn the heating on or off
  • Set Auto Mode to automatically adjust settings based on current and targeted air quality
  • View all sensor readings
  • Adjust oscillation rotation up to 350°
  • Set airflow direction forward or backward
  • Turn on the sleep timer and Night Mode for quietest and dimmest settings
  • Adjust fan speed (1-10)
Use the custom mode for more direct control over speed and other settings.

3) Dyson Link App

The Dyson Link App, available on Google Play and the App Store, offers all the controls of the remote and more, including real-time outdoor air quality monitoring and software upgrades.

Everything you can do with the remote can be done on the app, with some additions.

The remote lets you:

  • Get help with setup if necessary, and contact Dyson support 
  • Use your actual geographic location to get real-time outdoor air quality monitoring 
  • Connect to compatible devices like Amazon Echo to use voice commands
  • Upgrade your unit with the latest software
  • Set schedules in advance 
  • Check sensor data readings of different pollutants
  • Access indoor air quality monitoring instantly
  • Control all settings and operations

4) Smart Home Connection

 Smart home connectivity with devices like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple Siri.

The Filters

The HP07 uses a pair of filters

A HEPA and an activated carbon filter – to achieve its excellent purification. These filters work in tandem to capture and reduce gases and ultrafine particles. The entire unit is designed to be completely sealed, meeting the HEPA H13 standard.

How the Filters Work

The filter can be found under the mesh filter covers which wrap around the base.

Together, both filters capture and reduce gases and ultra fine particles.

  • Activated carbon filter—reduces or removes gases and odors including VOCs. Carbon granules capture gases such as formaldehyde, benzene, and nitrous dioxide.
  • Glass HEPA filter—captures 99.97% of particle matter down to 0.3 microns in size with borosilicate microfibers pleated more than 200 times.

Size & Dimensions

The HP07 stands out in its size and dimensions, being relatively thin and medium height with a small footprint.

It has a small footprint, albeit more than an inch larger in diameter than the non-heated Purifier Cool TP07.

Exact dimensions:

  • Height: 30” Tall
  • Length: 5.12” 
  • Diameter: 9.8”

Dyson HP07 Features

The Purifier HP07 air purifier is certainly pricier than other more traditional fans. Its included design features may help soften the impact of any sticker shock.

Smart Control

Smart Control features of the HP07 are boosted with Wi-Fi connectivity that allows control through the remote, the Dyson Link app, or voice commands via smart home devices. The heating feature stands out, allowing purified air to heat rooms, making the HP07 a viable option in all seasons.



We appreciate the visual graphics of indoor and outdoor air quality provided by the app. These use information collected by the sensors on:
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • VOCs: volatile organic compounds 
  • PM10: Particulate matter from larger microscopic particles up to 10 microns such as mold, pollen, and dust
  • PM2.5: Particulate matter to 2.5 microns such as bacteria, allergens, and smoke
  • NO2: nitrogen dioxid
All this collected information is used to constantly monitor air quality and adjust speed up or down.

Heating

The heating aspect of the HP07 is of course what makes it stand out from other Dyson models. Many people use space heaters to warm rooms or smaller places. Using a Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool allows you to heat your room with already-purified air.
With heating as well as a cooling fan designed in the air purifier, the HP07 is useful in all seasons. Having it all in only one device reduces clutter and cords in your home—not to mention off-season storage requirements.

Operating Modes

The HP07’s primary operation modes are:

  • Auto Mode: This intelligent feature uses integrated sensors to detect current air quality and automatically adjusts fan speed, ensuring optimal air purification. It even pauses the unit when the target air quality/temperature is reached, saving energy and lowering power bills.

  • Custom Mode: For those who prefer hands-on adjustments, the TP07 allows you to fine-tune settings, including fan speed, airflow direction, and oscillation, to your specific preferences.

  • Night Mode: Ideal for quiet and undisturbed sleep, Night Mode activates a sleep timer, dims the LCD screen, and operates at the quietest settings while continuously monitoring and responding to changes in air quality.

Air Quality Assessment

One of our favorite elements of the Dyson HP07 is the detailed air quality assessments mentioned earlier.

Powered by three intelligent sensors, this unit continually scrutinizes the air quality around it and delivers real-time, detailed reports, complete with visuals that reflect the variations in both indoor and outdoor air quality.

Dyson has made it a point to integrate Continuous Monitoring, enabling these reports to be seen graphically over a specified period.

 What’s impressive is that these reports are accessible either on the LCD screen mounted on the base or via an intuitive app. 

This feature becomes crucial in helping you make energy-efficient, cost-saving decisions about when and how to tweak settings and controls. 

Setup & Usability

 With the HP07, Dyson proves that technology doesn’t have to be intimidating. The setup process is as smooth and intuitive as with most other Dyson models. 

 A word to the wise – when handling the unit, lift it by its base using both hands, avoiding the loop amplifier to minimize structural stress.

When unboxed:

  • Push your HEPA+Carbon filter into the outer cover, position onto the base, and push firmly until both outer covers click securely into place. 
  • Place the remote control on top of the machine with the buttons facing down. 
  • Plug in the cord.
  • Push the On / Off button.

 To unleash the full potential of the device, simply download the Dyson Link app from the App Store or Google Play. 

Just remember that the heating feature must be accessed via the remote control.

Maintenance

 In true Dyson fashion, the HP07 demands very little maintenance besides routine cleaning and filter replacement. 

 

A simple wipe down of the amplifier with a dry or damp microfiber cloth from time to time suffices. 

 You can easily track the filter’s life via the LCD screen or the app. Dyson recommends a filter replacement every twelve months, although this may vary depending on use.

Avoid using detergents or polishes.

Is the HP07 worth it?

When developing a cost/benefit analysis of any purifier, we consider:
  • Special features
  • Design efficiency
  • Included accessories
  • Ease of Use
  • Ease of setup
  • Decibel levels
  • Required maintenance
  • Performance testing

At the heart of the decision to invest in the Dyson HP07 is the careful consideration of special features, design efficiency, included accessories, ease of use, ease of setup, decibel levels, required maintenance, and performance testing. 

It all boils down to one fundamental question: Does the unit’s performance match its cost? 

In the case of the HP07, the answer is a resounding “yes.” Despite being a pricier model, the Dyson HP07 offers excellent value for the investment.
