Air Purification

The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link HP02 is a combination space heater, fan, and air purifier. It slots under the Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool HP07 in Dyson's lineup of combo appliances, with a less powerful fan motor and smaller size. That said, it does have a lot of the same functionality as the pricier models in the HP lineup, with live particle detection, automatic fan speed adjustment, and Wi-Fi connectivity, so you can operate the device or check on its status while you're away from home. You can also control it using voice commands made through Apple Siri and Amazon Echo.

Our Verdict

4.2 Pets

The Dyson HP02 is a poor option for pet owners. It does a terrible job of trapping fine particles like pet dander, and its low clean air delivery rate means that it's really only best used in small rooms. On the upside, you can use it as a heater and cooling fan, and its Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to change settings or monitor air quality while you're away from home.

Pros
  • Automatic fan speed adjustment function.
  • Can operated via smartphone app, voice commands, or included remote control.
Cons
  • Terrible particle filtration performance.
  • Low clean air delivery rate.
  • Noisy operation when heater is turned on.
5.8 Bedroom

The Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link HP02 is a middling choice for bedrooms. It runs relatively quietly, especially when set to lower fan speeds using the device's 'Night Mode,' which is good if you like to run your air purifier as you sleep. That said, it isn't actually doing all that much as far as air purification goes; the HP02 has a very low clean air delivery rate and struggles to trap most kinds of airborne particles.

Pros
  • Automatic fan speed adjustment function.
  • Can operated via smartphone app, voice commands, or included remote control.
Cons
  • Terrible particle filtration performance.
  • Low clean air delivery rate.
  • Noisy operation when heater is turned on.
3.4 Air Purification

The Dyson HP02 is bad for day-to-day air purification. Its air cleaning rate is very slow, and its relatively rudimentary filtration system, which is simpler than those found in similar Dyson models, does a poor job of sealing in most kinds of airborne allergens. That said, its suite of particle sensors and automatic fan speed adjustment function makes for a pretty hands-off user experience.

Pros
  • Automatic fan speed adjustment function.
  • Can operated via smartphone app, voice commands, or included remote control.
Cons
  • Terrible particle filtration performance.
  • Low clean air delivery rate.
  • Noisy operation when heater is turned on.
  • 4.2 Pets
  • 5.8 Bedroom

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

This device has two variants, though they differ only in color. The HP02 is available in White/Silver or Black/Nickel colorways. We tested the White/Silver version; you can see its label here.

Let us know in the comments if you encounter another variant of this machine.

Compared To Other Air Purifiers

The Dyson HP02 is an all-in-one air purifier, fan, and space heater. Right off the bat, it's important to note that you can buy a far more effective air purifier for a lot less; an alternative like the Winix 5500-2 will offer vastly superior particle filtration performance and a much greater clean air delivery rate while boasting advanced features like automatic fan speed adjustment, all for a fraction of the cost. Instead, the Dyson purifier's main advantage lies in the fact that you can also use it as a space heater and cooling fan; if you don't need an air purifier, it packs a lot of functionality into a tiny package.

Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool HP07

The Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool HP07 and Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Link HP02 are both all-in-one fans, space heaters, and air purifiers. That said, only the HP07 has a display screen that provides a live view of PM2.5 particle concentration, PM10 particle concentration, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) levels, and nitrogen dioxide levels. The HP07 also delivers better overall particle filtration performance. While the HP02 can pivot up and down, the HP07 has a much larger range of rotation.

The minimalist display at the center of this machine shows the current fan speed setting or chosen temperature if you've enabled the cooling fan or heater. It's far more basic than the full display found on the pricier Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool HP07. The latter can show you a live view of PM2.5 particle concentration, PM10 particle concentration, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) level, and nitrogen dioxide levels. The HP02 does have a similar suite of sensors, and you can monitor pollutant levels through the Dyson Link app. Enabling the device's 'Night Mode' sets the fan to its quietest setting and dims the display, which will also shut off after five seconds of inactivity.

This air purifier also comes with a remote control that allows you to change the air purifier's fan speed, adjust the main fan's oscillation, change the intensity of its heating element, or enable 'Night Mode.' This remote is magnetized and is meant to be placed on top of the oval-shape fan when not in use.

This air purifier has a sealed filtration system with a '360 Glass' HEPA filter for dealing with most airborne particles, along with a separate odor-absorbing layer. However, no specifics on the latter are given.

The Dyson's display will display an 'F' with three horizontal lines when it's time to replace the filter. This filter is expected to last for a year if you use the machine for 12 hours daily. You can buy a replacement filter here.
