Written By: Dr Fahad Yasin

In the world of air purifiers, there exists a remarkable instrument that has captured the attention of many: the Dyson Pure Cool TP04.

Let’s explore the virtuoso that is the Dyson Pure Cool TP04.

AIR PURIFIER FOR MEDIUM & LARGE ROOMS

With its tall, bladeless design and patented In a harmonious blend of engineering and artistry, the TP04 conducted a mesmerizing at-home test, achieving a jaw-dropping 97% improvement in air quality, as it reduced PM2.5 from 7.2 to a mere 0.2.

Quick Specs

Dyson Pure Cool TP04 Design

This masterpiece of engineering features a slender base supporting an elegant, open amp, through which the purified air cascades like a sonnet of freshness

 

The Dyson TP04 is available in three different colors:

White + Silver
Black + Silver
Iron + Blue

The Amplifier

The amplifier, commonly referred to as the “amp” is one of the most standout features of Dyson air purifiers. The bladeless amp is designed to move air without needing rotating blades or other small parts / attachments.

It’s easy to wipe down with a dry cloth or vacuum using a soft dusting brush.

The Controls

The TP04 boasts a trio of control methods, offering a symphony of choices to its users:

  1. Display Screen
  2. Remote Control
  3. Smartphone Control

1) Display Screen

 Nestled at the base, the LCD screen provides real-time air quality readings, customizable settings, and the current fan speed, akin to a conductor’s baton directing the purifier’s performance.

 

In the image above, you can see the chart showing “AQ” and a “5”. The AQ stands for “Air Quality” and the “5” is the current fan speed.
You cannot change settings using the display screen, but you’l need to use it with the remote control to determine your current settings.

2) Remote

The remote control allows you to:

  • Turn the purifier on / off
  • Adjust fan speed (1-10)
  • Oscillate base of the purifier (0-350°)
  • Reverse airflow (forward or backwards)
  • Turn on the sleep timer
  • Turn on Auto Mode
  • Flip through sensor readings (using the “i” button)

The magnetic remote allows for seamless manipulation, granting users the power to commence or cease the symphony.

 

3) Dyson Link App

A digital symphony hall, the app offers complete control and monitoring, affording users the liberty to access all features present on the remote, real-time air quality updates based on location, sensor data readings, automated scheduling, voice control (with compatible devices), and firmware updates for continuous refinement.

The Filters

The TP04 harmonizes its purification efforts with a duo of filters:

  •  360° Glass HEPA Filter: Exquisite in its precision, this filter captures particulate matter as small as 0.3 microns, ensuring that no impurity shall disrupt the symphony.
  •  Activated Carbon Filter: The support act to the HEPA filter, this component tackles odors, silencing their discordant notes, and leaving the air refreshed.

How does it work?

In a breathtaking performance, untreated air is drawn into the base, enveloped by the filters’ harmonious melody of purification, before being gracefully distributed back into the room by the radial amp. The conductor, TP04, can deftly direct the airflow forward or backward, a masterstroke to accommodate the changing seasons.a

Dyson Features

The Pure Cool TP04 air purifier comes with a few features that are designed to make the Dyson truly a high-end air purifier.

Smart Control

Wi-Fi connectivity empowers you to operate the purifier through the Dyson Link app, smartphone, or voice commands, providing unparalleled convenience and control.

Is it easy to pair the Dyson app?

Pairing up the Dyson app to the purifier was easy to do and took 6-7 minutes. I paired the TP04 to my Android phone without issue, but the app is also compatible on iOS.
The app provides a nice visual graphic of indoor and outdoor air quality based on:

This information helps the Dyson air purifier to know when it’s time to adjust fan speed.

Operating Modes

The Dyson Pure Cool TP04 comes with three main modes you can run from this air purifier. The modes include:

  •  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

 The TP04’s air quality sensors provide detailed, real-time monitoring of indoor and outdoor air quality. The data is displayed on the LCD screen or the Dyson Link app, allowing you to make informed adjustments to maintain clean air.

Seeing a wide range of data regarding the indoor and outdoor air quality helps you to know when it’s time to turn the purifier up or down.
Of course, when in Auto Mode, the purifier will be able to adjust to varying air quality automatically.

Dyson Performance

To truly appreciate the TP04’s virtuosity, we subjected it to rigorous tests, transforming our home-based testing lab into a stage for its performance. The TP04 demonstrated exceptional prowess, reducing PM2.5 by a staggering 97% within an hour of operation in a medium-sized room (approximately 12’x12′). The symphony of purification swept away particles, leaving the room in harmonious equilibrium.

What is PM?

PM stands for “Particulate Matter”. This measurement can basically be divided into two camps , PM10 and PM2.5.

  • PM 10 = particulate matter that is 10 micrometers and smaller
  • PM 2.5 = particulate matter that is 2.5 micrometers and smaller
We perform these tests in our home-based testing lab, meaning that the air is much like the air you’d find in most average homes. For example, we have a dog, a baby, and seasonal allergens that come and go.
Here’s what our Pure Cool TP04 tests showed:

Starting Baseline

PM2.5: 7.4

PM10: 12.1

Particles: 599

AQI: 30

After 1 hour

PM2.5: 0.2

PM10: 0.2

Particles: 14

AQI: 0

Within 1 hour, the Dyson removed 98% of air particulates from the medium-sized room we tested in (approx. 12’x12′). Dyson improved PM 2.5 air quality by 97%.

How loud is the Dyson Pure Cool?

The Dyson Pure Cool air purifier ranges between 40-56 dB depending on room size, fan speed, and ambient noise present in the room.

Setup & Usability

The TP04’s setup is straightforward—unbox, install filters, plug it in, and start purifying. Usability is intuitive, offering options for manual customization or letting the purifier work autonomously in Auto Mode.

We simply:

  1. Unboxed the air purifier.
  2. Installed the filters.
  3. Plugged the purifier in.
  4. Turned it on.

Dyson Maintenance

The maintenance on the Dyson Pure Cool TP04 basically boils down to following digital prompts.

Maintenance is a breeze with the TP04, as the digital screen and Dyson Link app provide prompts for filter replacement. Keeping the filters up-to-date ensures optimal performance and prevents particulate build-up

You can also check out the current status of your filters at any time to see where you’re at regarding usage.

Is the Dyson Pure Cool TP04 a good value?

While this magnum opus does demand a significant investment, the symphony of design, accessories, features, usability, setup, noise level, maintenance, and performance it delivers make it a compelling value proposition. The TP04’s smart capabilities, coupled with its multiple control options, offer a crescendo of possibilities to cater to users’ preferences.



Despite the high price point, it’s still total value for money.
