Dyson Portable Heaters Review & Guide

Dyson is a world leader in small appliances, but while it is best known for its collection of popular vacuum cleaners, including their stick vacuums, the brand is also growing its reputation when it comes to cooling and heating home gadgets. To see how Dyson portable heaters stack up, we take a look at what models are currently available plus their features and prices.

Dyson Hot + Cool fan heaters range

Dyson is well known for its unique bladeless technology, offering a number of fan heaters in this design. The lineup includes:

  • Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Purifying Fan Heater (HP00): $899 RRP*
  • Dyson Purifier Hot + Cool Formaldehyde Purifying Fan Heater (HP09): $1,099 RRP*

Features to expect from Dyson’s portable heaters

A few common features in Dyson’s portable heaters include:

  • Purifier: uses Dyson’s Air Multiplier technology to suck in pollutants and release purified air throughout the room. Some models also have a layer of activated carbon, which is claimed to get rid of odours and gases.
  • HEPA filter: contains a HEPA H13 filter to trap 99.95% of particles.
  • Night-mode: offers a lower noise setting and the option to dim the display.
  • Diffused mode: purifies the room by directing the airflow through the back of the machine so it doesn’t cool you.
  • Compatible with Dyson Link app: controls the appliance and monitors the air quality straight from your phone.

Are Dyson portable heaters worth the money?

It’s certainly worth checking out Dyson’s range of portable heaters ─ particularly if you’re planning on investing in a high-end model and prefer to pay extra for additional features that you can use all year-round, rather than just the cooler months. Since the brand’s Hot + Cool series is designed to function as a purifier and fan as well as a heater, you could even switch out these three appliances for just one of Dyson’s purifying fan heaters.

Dyson’s portable heaters also certainly catch the eye with their space-age bladeless design. Their simplicity, along with their functionality, is what keeps the company competing with – and often ahead of – other brands. If you’re looking for a sleek design to fit right into your home, Dyson will likely have you covered.

But expect to pay a premium price for a premium appliance. Plus, it’s worth mentioning that many brands are now adding air-purifying capabilities to their appliances and offering these at lower prices.

When it comes to the important issue of energy efficiency, unlike most household appliances, portable heaters don’t have energy star ratings because there are no government regulations requiring them for such appliances. Instead, it would be a good idea to keep wattage in mind as the greater the wattage of a heater, the more power it will use, and the more it will likely cost you in energy bills.

Of course, it’s still worth reviewing a range of brands and products to find the appliance that best matches your cooling and heating needs – and your budget. If you’re prepared to spend the big bucks, Dyson will be very tough to beat. But if you’re looking for a bargain, you could certainly pay less elsewhere.
