We live in a time when the environment we live in, the air we breathe has the potential to kill us. Ask any medical professional who deals with patients who suffer from asthma, and they will swear on their life how important an air purifier is.

While there are a number of options to choose from, anyone looking for an air purifier will invariably come across something called Dyson.

Dyson has a reputation for over-engineering its products, so in a sea of ​​common box-sized air purifiers, their air purifiers naturally stand out. Dyson not only sells you a piece of technology, but also a work of art.

Plus, they seem to consistently push the boundaries on a number of things. As well as cramming their products to the brim with new innovations, Dyson is also pushing the boundaries of what some would consider value for money.

It’s no secret that Dyson products are very expensive. Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde TP09 is no different. But how good is it as an air purifier and more importantly, is it worth the money Dyson is asking for it? We try to answer that question.

Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde: What’s New?
While Dyson has a number of air purifiers, for the Purifier Cool Formaldehyde, Dyson has added a special solid-state sensor that will last as long as the machine.

Formaldehyde is a gas pollutant released by furniture and wooden items made with formaldehyde-based resins. Materials such as plywood and fiberboard, insulation, and DIY products such as paint, wallpaper, varnish, and household cleaners can all release formaldehyde.

It is about 500 times smaller than 0.1 microns, is extremely difficult to catch and, if left undetected, can be locked up in a house for years. Prolonged exposure can cause severe asthma and breakdown of lung tissue.

It can even cause high levels of formaldehyde and can cause myeloid leukemia and other rare cancers around the nasal cavity and pharynx.

Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde: Set Up
Setting up the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is quite simple and can be done with great ease in under 10 minutes, even if one is not that well versed in previous Dyson products and has little to no technical know-how.

After removing the air purification tower and the HEPA+ carbon filter and the catalytic filter from their packaging, all you need to do is put the tower upright.

Please note that the remote control comes in its own box. Open the filter cover or grille by simply releasing the latch and then insert the filters.

The catalytic filter goes in first, followed by the HEPA+ Carbon filter. Once these are in place, simply replace the grille and lock it in place using the latches on the grille. Your air purifier is all ready to plug in, ready to use.

Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde: The Design
First of all, the aesthetics of the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde are sublime. There’s no point in disproving this, but the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is a work of art. It really is something to look at and would perfectly complement the most elegant and sophisticated trends any good interior designer can imagine.

The design Dyson chose for the Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is something they had established quite some time ago with their bladeless fans and air purifiers.

This new air purifier weighs 4.86 kilograms, is approximately 105 centimeters high and 22 centimeters wide. This variation is available in a number of colors, white and gold. Our test unit had the gold livery, which is quite an elegant and nice looking coppery color.

While the main body of the purifier is white in color, the accompanying remote control, as well as the outer filter cover, is in that beautiful copper color.

Due to the high design, the filter takes up little space on the ground and can also be placed in a filled room. Just make sure there is room for the Purifier Cool Formaldehyde to oscillate and the base has enough room to suck the air in.

Thanks to the small display on the base unit, you can see the air quality in a room in real time and how well your new air purifier is working.

Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde: Functionality
The best way to use the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is to keep it in Auto mode, although users can select the fan speed it will run at.

In automatic mode, the purifier constantly monitors the air quality in the room by monitoring the levels of PM2.5, PM10 and formaldehyde in the air. It will adjust the speed of the fans accordingly and purify the air until the level of pollutants falls back to what it should ideally be.

Once it reaches that number, the purifier will slow itself down and eventually go back to sleep, yet continue to monitor the quality of the air.

The fan function of the air purifier works poorly. Up to level 6 or so you can barely hear the air purifier working. Everything above that is somewhat audible, but not so much that it can be called distracting.

At level 10, the fans make quite a noise. If you have placed the air purifier next to your workplace in the house, you will be distracted by the constant buzzing sound it makes. However, the fact that it oscillates within 350 degrees helps you overlook the sound.

Don’t expect the tower to cool you enough, it won’t be able to do that, even if the fans and other settings are set to 10. But that was never the intention.

The small LCD screen on the purifier is a handy touch. Not only does it show the air quality and level of pollutants in a room in real time, it also helps you manually set up the purifier if you choose to do so.

There is also a night mode which works quite brilliantly and works silently.

Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde: The App Integration
In addition to the remote control, users can also control the purifier with the Dyson Link app. The app works flawlessly and is very easy to use.

The app is also packed with extra features, so much so that after a few days you’ll want to ditch the included remote and control the purifier via the app only.

Setting up and connecting to the air purifier is again very simple and intuitive. The homepage gives you all the relevant information you need if you’re keeping a close eye on the sky.

The app is well designed and very intuitive to use. The secondary page gives you all the relevant numbers in a very concise and clear way. These mainly include PM10, VOC and NO2 levels, the three largest air pollutants.

It also allows users to closely monitor the levels of each of the major pollutants, including formaldehyde. It also shows you the levels of various pollutants by hour, day and week, helping users to better monitor their environment and sources of pollution.

The app also allows users to turn on the purifier from a completely different part of the city, as long as the purifier is plugged in. Users can also create schedules in which the air purifier turns on automatically and also turns off automatically. The app also pulls data from the web to show you a fairly comprehensive AQI report of your city and compares it to the air in the room. The app also lets you know when to change the filter, which in a city like Delhi would be every 8-10 months.

Conclusion: is the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde worth the money?
The addition of formaldehyde purification is a nice feature and something that most air purifiers lack.

If your doctor has advised you to monitor your formaldehyde exposure, it’s almost a good idea to go for the Purifier Cool Formaldehyde.

If that’s not a problem, though, there are many other air purifiers for half the cost that will do the trick. You give up a few conveniences and features, but it will get the job done.
