Dyson TP04 is for:
You might be wondering if the Dyson TP04 might cool down your room while purifying the air because it is “Pure Cool“. But, this is partially true. Dyson TP04 has air filters, but it has no built-in heat pump like an air conditioner. The forward-facing airflow will give you a chill feeling like a fan does. Typically portable air purifiers don’t cool the room.
Dyson called it a fan because the aerodynamically designed loop amplifier multiplies the air and increases the airflow a lot (up to 15 times than it filters) than a typical air purifier. This feature allows it to be used as a fan.
In-depth Review of Dyson TP04 Air Purifier:
True HEPA as primary filtration
Dyson TP04 uses a true HEPA grade filter, which is about 60 percent larger than the previous generation (TP02). The filter medium is glass fibers, and it can capture 99.97% of tiny airborne particulates that are as small as 0.3 microns. These include particles from smoke, ultrafine dust, asbestos, and viruses.
The filter is pleated over 238 times in a sealed plastic case, which lasts up to 12 months on normal usage and moderate indoor air quality. Also, you can check the remaining filter life on the display or via the Dyson Link app.
This air purifier is tested and certified by AAFA (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America), which will give you an extra sense of protection if you have asthma or allergies.
Granular activated carbon filter
The second stage filter is a high-quality granular activated carbon filter. It adsorbs light household odors and VOCs. Dyson claims the new edition’s carbon filter has three times more carbon material than the previous generation.
Like the HEPA filter, this carbon filter also lasts up to 12 months, and you can check the remaining filter life from the onboard LCD or mobile app.
Boosted airflow design
Dyson air purifiers have a unique air delivery technology, also known as Air Multiplier. The early Dyson bladeless fans first adopted the technology. The aerodynamically designed loop amplifier induced a stream of air to the airflow. It results in 15 times more air delivery than it sucks from the bottom (through the filter).
Dyson TP04 also comes with the Air Multiplier technology, which delivers up to 77 gallons of air per second or 617 cubic feet of air per minute (cfm) at top speed. However, Dyson didn’t reveal the multiplication factor for this model. If we assume it 15, we can find the CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) by 617 / 15 = 42 cfm.
If you are curious about Dyson Air Multiplier technology, then please watch the explanation from Sir James Dyson:
Dyson TP04 is ideal for large rooms to projects the air with its huge loop amplifier. You also can choose different oscillation angle that covers up to 350-degrees. This ensures better air circulation throughout the room, which is essential for effective air filtration.
However, with a CADR of ~ 42 cfm, you won’t be able to get a faster air cleaning. To get the best output, leave it ON all the time.
If you need a quicker pollutants removal, such as to remove smoke, then it will not be useful for you.
Dyson TP04 comes with both a handy remote controller and Wi-Fi connectivity feature. It supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network so that you can connect it with almost every modern Wi-Fi router.
The robust Dyson Link app is available in both App Store and Google Play. You can monitor, control, and schedule the purifier from anywhere using the app.
Dyson TP04 is compatible with all popular smart speakers: Alexa, Google Home, and Apple HomeKit. So, you can conveniently control it using voice commands.
You can put the remote controller conveniently to the top of the air purifier where it has magnets.
Multiple air quality sensors
Dyson TP04 air purifier is loaded with air quality sensors to monitor the surrounding air quality. The device has 3 core air quality sensors, which are particle, VOC, and Nitrogen dioxide.
The laser-based particle sensor counts both small (PM2.5) and larger (PM10) pollutants. It also has a temperature and humidity sensor. You can check all the different air quality metrics from the onboard LCD and Dyson Link app.
Also, these sensors can save you up to 200 bucks from purchasing a separate air quality monitor.
1 to 10 level fan speeds
Dyson TP04 has wide 10 level fan speeds you can choose from. You can also set it to the automatic mode to select the fan speeds based on ambient air pollution. This is not only convenient but also cost-saving.
The unit has a sleep mode feature, which dims all the display lights. If you set it to auto mode plus sleep mode together, the purifier will run 1 to 4 fan speeds. You can enjoy a peaceful sleep for this speed-limiting feature at night.
As Dyson TP04 is a tall tower fan, it incorporates all the typical pedestal fan features. You can set the oscillation angle between 45 degrees to 350 degrees. You can choose from 45°, 90°, 180°, or 350° oscillation.
Also, you can change the airflow direction from forward to backward, like the winter/summer mode of a fan. This feature will allow you to use it all year round.
The standby power consumption is 2 watts (Wi-Fi on) and 0.5 watts (Wi-Fi off). The input power for Dyson TP04 is 6 watts for the lowest fan speed and 40 watts for the highest fan speed. It comes with a detachable 6-feet long power cord, including a power brick.
Suitable Room Size for Dyson TP04:

Dyson TP04 vs. DP04 vs. HP04:
Choosing between TP04 and DP04 can be a little tricky as the two models are almost the same in their functionality. TP04 is a slim tower series, while the DP04 is desk series with a circular loop amplifier. Only DP04 has a tilt feature that allows you to change the airflow direction to an upward/downward angle a little bit.
The HP04 model integrates a heater coil into its loop amplifier so that you can use the model for room heating during the winter.
Questions & Answers:
Q. Can I use it only as a fan without air purification?
A. No, the centrifugal fan draws the air through the filters. You should not run it without the filters, or it will damage the motor.
Q. Does TP04 cools down the room?
A. No, it has no built-in air cooling mechanism. It will only give you a cool breeze like a fan.
Q. How strong is the airflow?
A. The maximum airflow rate of Dyson TP04 is about 617 cfm, which is almost half than a regular desk fan (average is 1000 cfm).
Q. Are the filters washable?
A. None of the filters is washable. You have to replace the non-disposable filters once a year or earlier based on the usage and the indoor air quality.
Q. Can I carry the air purifier by the loop?
A. No, you shouldn’t use the loop as a carrying handle. You have to use the base to move it between places.
Dyson’s bladeless air purifying fans are revolutionary. Dyson TP04 is a hybrid air purifier fan that filters the air and blow out like a fan. If you are looking for an all-rounder air purifier with nice aesthetics, then the Dyson TP04 Air Purifier could be a perfect selection for large spaces.
