It’s heat wave in Paris. We are not used to have 30C or 100F so we had to avoid melting down and decided to buy the Dyson hot+cold.
Why this model ?
. Mr Dyson discovered the Air multiplier technology (meaning faster cooling or heating).
. when is cold during the winter it’s also great to have an extra heater in the apartment that you can move from the sitting room to the bedroom, so I have a two in one (only one machine to store instead of two)
. there’s no blades to harm you or to clean (I’m not good at cleaning anyway)
. it’s looks sleek and cool (matching my style)
Let’s open the box! Inside I found the hot+cool, it’s remote control and a thick operating manual (only 2 pages are important, the rest will help you extend your language skills to Dutch, Polish, Russian, …).
The remote control is small and light, you won’t lose it as it’s magnetised and will rest on the top of the hot+cool.
The functions on the remote are the following:
. choice between hot (red dot) or cold (blue dot)function,
. setting of the temperature when on heating mode (you’ll see the temperature on the base of the hot+cool) or of the strengths of the wind when in cold mode (small dot to the big dot)
When you check online you will see lots of people complaigning about the noise. I decided to use the great app called “Decibel” to check it out.
The hot+cool will warm you or cool you down with up to 10 levels of wind!
. Level1 57db (average quiet street),
. level2 59db,
. level3 61db,
. level4 63db (average normal conversation),
. level 5 66db,
. level6 68db,
. level7 68db,
. level8 70db (average inside car),
. level9 71db,
. level10 73db.
In comparison, I checked the noise made by the fans we use at the office. I picked different models, all working full speed due to the heat, and they go from 68 to 76db!
So the Dyson hot+cool is noisy but just like any other standard fans.
Great to mention that the fan pivots on its own centre of gravity, so you can direct the airflow to your face, body or legs … really cool and handy.
. It ‘s great to have a fan without the blades (no more stress for the kids or animals to get hurt)
. It’s easy to move it from one room to another
. It will cool you down and also warm you up, an all in one saving you storage space
. As with every Dyson machine, design and performances are the key
. It’s expensive and if you only need a fan, you can get one below the 60$
