Blow hot, blow cold

Unlike traditional-looking air purifiers that usually have a boxy design, Dyson’s offerings mark them out to be lifestyle products. This one houses cylindrical filters at the bottom with an oval top that blows purified air throughout the room. Dyson claims that the advanced HEPA H13 filtration system captures gases and 99.95 per cent of particles as small as 0.1 microns. Plus, it can keep you warm in winter by throwing hot air. It is also compatible with voice assistants.
