The Dyson AM09 was first released to the public in late 2015 to a mixed reception, however over the last year has firmly developed it's place at the top of the bladeless fan market. There is a problem, it's priced at over £300 which does beg the question, can you really justify buying a £300+ hot and cold fan to use at home. Here's our Dyson AM09 Review.
Immediately after you set up and the Dyson bladeless fan, it's pedigree show though. It simply looks fantastic given it's simple design and effective performance. It’s really easy to use allowing you to quickly get it up and running the minute you plug it in. The Dyson fan has been designed with three things in mind. Bladeless technology, hot and cold technology and fantastic performance.
The design allows for bladeless technology which means that you don't have spinning blades creating the air flow. This means that it's very safe for you, your children and any pets that you live with. No potentially nasty visible heating elements also means that it's child friendly when you're trying to heat your room.
The Bladeless technology works by using Dyson's very own air multiplier technology which draws in air from the fan's base and channels it's direction to create an area of low pressure that results in a powerful stream of air. When you using the fan's heater, the process is exactly the same with the only difference being that the air is directed over a heating element before it's channelled out of the fan.
The channels have been designed to reduce turbulence and therefore allows the airflow to pass through the fan with much less noise than previous models and greater efficiency meaning that it cost less to run than previous models.
Hot And Cold Technology
The intelligent air multiplying technology is fantastic the Dyson AM09 which means that you can both have hot and cold air flow if you choose. Remember, this is a fan and not air conditioning meaning that in mid summer, it's not going to be ice cold.
That all said, the temperature heats up quickly meaning that the minute you switch it on, it quickly heats up allowing for hot air to flow out of the fan. If you find it too hot, the temperature is easily changed using either the remote control settings or the button located on the base of the fan. Changing the temperature is easy and the fan quickly reacts to your inputs meaning that you can change your temperature rapidly.
The technology also allows you to choose how you’d like the air to be diffused. For a more gentle and subtle projection, you can choose the diffused setting meaning that the air flow will be directed around the room, whilst the powerful jet setting will ensure a more powerful and long-range airflow.
This jet setting can be useful if you’re looking to dry a particular part of your room or patch of material, or simply if you’re feeling particularly hot or cold and you want a quick, focused blast. This setting works best when you’re within a fairly short distance from the heater, which might be of note if you have large rooms in your home.
The last part of the Dyson AM09 Review focuses on it's performance which is fantastic. Whichever setting you choose, it’s pretty quiet, which sets this one apart from many other heaters you can find on the market, many of which can be quite noisy.
A small amount of users have complained that when you turn up the fan to the top of it's range, it's actually quite noisy, however this can be said of any fan or heater on the market. During our test's, running it flat out did make some noise, however it only required to turn the volume on our TV up a couple of notches.
The thermostat is pretty effective, and will switch off when you’re at your desired temperature, then back on again once the temperature needs adjusting. Some users have reported that the thermostat can be a little unreliable, but this is unfortunately often the case, with heaters of this type. The sleep timer is a nice addition, and can be set at a number of handy intervals.
It is perhaps worth noting that some users have found that the heater is not as fast as they would like it to be to heat up however again, if you're expecting to switch on your fan and it instantly produce heat, then you need to buy a heater.
The Dyson AM09 is a fantastic heater, but it is rather expensive. Is it worth the money, personally i think it is and it's something that we have sat in our lounge.
However if you're on a budget then I can understand that spending over £300 on a heater might be a stretch, but we love the bladeless technology which makes the Dyson AM09 safe to use at home with children and pets and most importantly, of all the bladeless fans that we have tested over the years, this is firmly the best.
