Christmas can be all hustle and bustle, so it’s not often we take the time for safety checks – but that’s where Dyson can help


We all love the various sights, sounds and smells of Christmas – the lights on the tree twinkling out of the corner of our eye, the sound of the same old Christmas movies on the TV, and, of course, the smell of dinner on the big day. This season is a time to embrace a little chaos, to allow your senses to revel in the celebrations and most importantly, to have fun.

But with so much going on, and so many things distracting your senses at once, it can be easy to overlook how hectic the hustle and bustle of Christmas can be. During the winter, and especially at this time of year, we are spending more time at home, using our appliances far more, and closing our windows.

While we see it as a way to keep the cosy feeling in our homes, it can also be a way of trapping in pollutants, odours and allergens.

The trouble with these kinds of airborne pollutants is that you can’t always see them – so much so, that they can build without even realising they’re there. Every day, we breathe 9,000 liters of air, but indoor air quality can be up to 5x worse than outdoor air quality.*

But with one product, we can monitor and improve the air quality in our homes, helping remove smells and airborne particles and create a comfortable home environment for Christmas.

The Dyson effect

The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool purifying fan heater is a fantastic solution to this problem, especially at this time of year when we all want to keep warm as well as keeping our air safe and clean. The Pure Hot + Cool removes 97% of food odours**, captures gases, odours and domestic fumes; as well as 99.95% of airborne particles, including dust, pet dander, pollen and mould spores. 

By expanding the degree of oscillation to 350 degrees and using Air Multiplier™ technology, the machine can project over 290 litres of purified air per second to every corner of the room – ensuring that it circulates purified air across the whole room.***

As well as automatically sensing and capturing pollutants, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool™ purifying fan heater is engineered for year-round use, delivering fast and even room heating in winter and a powerful cooling jet of air in summer. And, to make it even easier to monitor and control your air quality throughout Christmas, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool™ links to a Dyson app, so you can keep track of your air quality in real time.****

If you want a tool that will help manage the air quality in your home, and heat the “good room” up for Christmas day, the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool™ might just be the one for you.

* Hulin et al, Respiratory Health and Indoor air pollutants based on quantitative exposure assessments, European Respiratory Journal, October 2012

** Tested to EN13725

*** The standard purification and heating performance tests are AHAM AC1-2015 and IEC 60675 respectively. Dyson goes beyond these, by testing filtration efficiency (EN1822), air projection (DTM801), purification coverage in a 81m3 room with multiple sensors (TM-003711) and heating performance in a 35m3 room with multiple sensors (DTM 961).

**** Requires device to run app, 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi connection or mobile data, Bluetooth 4.0 support, and iOS version 10 or Android version 5 (or above). Standard data and messaging rates may apply.


The full Dyson purification range is available from Dyson at Dyson.ie and in Liffey Valley, Stephens Green, Swords Pavillions and Dundrum Town Centre. Visit now to see the exclusive colours and benefits you can get when you buy direct from Dyson.
