Dyson PH01 Design

The Dyson PH01 air purifier and humidifier designed for spaces up to 400 square feet offers a variety of modes that you can adjust manually or set to Auto Mode for automatic adjustment based on the real-time air quality.

Dyson’s newest release, the Dyson PH01, tackles the double-duty of air purification and humidification, all packed in one sleek and efficient package. It’s like getting a two-for-one deal with an unspoken guarantee of performance. As I delved into the details of this ingenious device, I discovered an engineering marvel that stands out in the crowded market of home appliances.

The Controls

You can control this purifier through:

1. Display Screen

Displays real-time air quality and current fan speed but doesn’t allow manual adjustment of settings.

Instead, you’ll need the remote control, smartphone app, or voice control enabled for that.

2. Remote Control

Allows adjustment of various settings including:

  • Turn the purifier on / off
  • Adjust fan speed
  • Adjust humidification levels
  • Oscillate amplifier (0, 45, or 90°)
  • Reverse airflow (forward or backward)
  • Turn on the sleep timer
  • Turn on Auto Mode
  • Flip through sensor readings (using the “i” button)
This remote has a magnetic body that can attach to the top of the amplifier, which helps to keep track of it.

3. Dyson Link App

Dyson Link app lets you adjust settings and monitor real-time air quality based on your geographic location and sensor data from the purifier.

4. Voice Control

Compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, or Google Assistant.
Voice control will still need the app but adds another level of usability to this purifier.

Top Features

Besides the control methods, the Dyson PH01 offers:

1. Manual Modes

Specialty modes on the PH01 include:

  • Breeze Mode: simulates the intensity of a natural breeze.
  • Fan Mode: forward airflow with 10 different fan speeds and 3 different oscillation angles—0°, 45°, or 90°.
  • Backward Airflow Mode: directs airflow out the back of the amplifier; good for cooler weather when you want clean air, but not necessarily the cooling effect of a fan
  • Night Mode: works on the lowest settings for quieter operation as well as a dimmed display

2. Auto Mode

Automatically detects indoor air quality and adjusts fan speed as needed

3. Humidifier

Comes with a 1-gallon humidifier tank that can add moisture to the air for up to 36 hours.

In addition, the system comes with Dyson Ultraviolet Cleanse technology, which hygienically removes 99.9% of bacteria in the water.

4. Sleep Timer

Runs the purifier at low power for quieter operation and dims the digital display.

Size & Dimensions

The PH01 air purifier is a fairly large unit, which makes sense because it’s a 2-in-1. The design needs to be large enough to incorporate the filters, a large humidifier tank, and a big enough amplifier to get the air moving.
The exact dimensions are listed below:
  • Diameter at base: 11″
  • Amplifier depth: 6.1″
  • Height: 36.42″ tall
  • Weight: 18.28 lbs.

Accessories & Parts

The Dyson PH01 package includes:
  • What’s in the box?

    • Dyson PH01 air purifier
    • Power cord; 6′ length
    • 360° Glass HEPA filter
    • Activated charcoal filter
    • Remote control

Dyson Performance

Max Airflow

350 liters/sec

CADR Rating

94.7

Area Coverage

400 sf.

The PH01 has strong airflow that’s on par with other large Dyson fans build for larger rooms. It is made to move air and at a good speed.

What is CADR rating?

CADR = Clean Air Delivery Rate: The rating is listed as a number and the higher the number the faster a purifier will be at cleaning air within any particular room.
The CADR rating of the PH01 is higher than the CADR of other Dyson purifiers we’ve tested to date.

For example, the Dyson HP04 has a CADR of 80 and can clean up to 800 square feetThe CADR of the PH01 is higher and would be slightly more efficient, even though the max area coverage is less (only 400 sf.)

Setup & Usability

The Dyson PH01 is easy to set up and use. You can make necessary adjustments using the smartphone app or the remote control.

Dyson’s newest release, the Dyson PH01, tackles the double-duty of air purification and humidification, all packed in one sleek and efficient package.

It’s like getting a two-for-one deal with an unspoken guarantee of performance. As I delved into the details of this ingenious device, I discovered an engineering marvel that stands out in the crowded market of home appliances.

Here are the quick steps you’ll need to do to get up and running.

  1. Unbox the air purifier.
  2. Install the filters.
  3. Plug the purifier in.
  4. Turn it on.

Dyson Maintenance

Setting up the Dyson PH01 is as easy as pie, as is maintaining it. The bladeless design eliminates the need for blade cleaning, and the app’s filter lifespan notification lets you know when it’s time to replace the filter.

This purifier is bladeless so you won’t have to worry about dusting blades, but it is a good idea to wipe down the amplifier with a dry cloth to keep it clean.

In addition to wiping down the amp, you’ll also need maintain the humidifier. You can do this by simply making sure that the tank always has water in it when in use.

Should You Buy the Dyson PH01?

The Dyson PH01 is an excellent choice if you need a 2-in-1 air purifier and humidifier with real-time air quality detection and a variety of control methods. Although it comes at a higher price point and has a larger footprint, its features and performance make it worth the investment.
