Like the other Dyson fans I’ve reviewed, this one comes with a remote control that handles all of the fan’s functions; the remote control is pretty self-explanatory, but there are a couple of functions I’ll go over.
The focused mode is great for when you are trying to concentrate the airflow to one specific area. Diffused mode is more for spreading the airflow all through the room, not just in one concentrated area. You can set the Pure Hot+Cool to oscillate, and it has a sleep timer if you want it to turn off on its own after a set time. The moon icon is for night mode, which dims the LED on the front of the fan and quiets the sound of the blower a bit.
Let’s look at some of the different things you might see while operating your Pure Hot+Cool.
The blue ring around the power button means that the Pure Hot+Cool is in cooling mode. The “1” means the fan is on the lowest setting (it will go all the way up to 10, which is pretty gusty).
The red ring means that the heater is on; it’s displaying the target temperature that I’d like the room to reach. You can crank the heat all the way up to 99º, which is great when you are trying to heat a cold room you’ve just entered, but blazing, insanely hot if you are sitting in front of the heater in focused mode.
The green A means that the Pure Hot+Cool is in Automatic mode; I’ve set it to 66º, so it will turn the heat on and off to maintain whatever temperature I’ve selected.
The Pure Hot+Cool Link can be tilted up to aim cool or hot air into the room, it can be focused down toward your feet, or it can shoot straight out at you. Where and how you are using the Hot+Cool will determine how you’d prefer it be aimed.
Although the Dyson is weighted on the bottom, there is always a chance that it might get knocked over by a boisterous pet or clumsy housemate while it’s running; if that happens, the Hot+Cool will immediately turn off — whether it’s in heating or cooling mode.
Like the other Dyson fans I’ve reviewed, the remote control stores conveniently on top of the tower with a magnet holding it in place.
