The first generation of Dyson Pure Cool Tower (Dyson TP01) is still available on the market, and you can buy it with a discounted price at the moment. You won’t find a bigger and better fan power Dyson than this series, thanks to its oversized 40-inch height. Today, we will give you the Dyson Pure Cool Tower Review, and since the summer is not over, you should really take a look at it.
Update: Just like any old air purifier with “01” in the code name, we are now having the Dyson TP04 as the latest Pure Cool Tower device. But with the huge drop in the price, I believe the old Dyson Pure Cool Tower TP01 is still viable.

The British company Dyson is the brainchild of Sir James Dyson, to be one of the best manufacturers for household appliances, with creative and innovative technology in mind. After the release of Dyson Pure Cool Link Desk, this company quickly release our today Dyson Pure Cool Tower to cover a much larger room, a device for the whole family. In today Dyson Pure Cool Tower Review, we will learn everything about this well-known air purifier.
Dyson Pure Cool Tower Price
The Dyson Pure Cool Link and Dyson Pure Hot+Cool are cool air purifiers, but they are the compact devices and need to put tabletop or desktop. As a fan itself, the Dyson air purifier needs to be tall enough to deliver the cool air directly into the users, without adjusting the body manually. And that’s how the Dyson Pure Cool Tower was born for.
This Dyson Pure Cool Tower is also the most advanced big cool air purifier with its oversized amplifier and superb fan power. It looks like a bigger version of the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool, but you won’t have the heating feature on this one yet. Maybe we will have one in the near future.
Being a Dyson air purifier, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower shares many elements with the shorter counterparts. It is also consistent across any devices in this tower series, being the first TP01 to the latest Dyson TP04.
The most attractive part is the price of this Dyson Pure Cool Tower, it was launched at $399, but dropped to only $299 for a limited time in the official website of Dyson. It makes the Dyson Pure Cool Tower currently the most affordable device in the whole family, especially when the desktop version is packed with Wi-Fi capability function. If you can’t get the deal in time, you can always check our below deal for a much better price.
Back to the competition, with only $299, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower will be the competent contender for any air purifier brands. The Philips 1000i and Winix AM90 are the most proper challengers, thanks to their advanced additional features. You can also check for one of the Whirlpool WP1000, Blue Pure 121 or Levoit LV-H135. These devices are made with high CADR rating, which is able to compare with the matchless power of the Dyson Pure Cool Tower.
Well, we are looking at the Dyson TP01, and the first generation may not have all the bells and whistles of top-range Dyson TP04, but it doesn’t have its brother’s price tag either. Do you prefer the actual performance, or you still are in love with the fancy features? You must answer this question yourself.

Dyson Pure Cool Tower Design and Size
We all know that the Dyson Pure Cool Tower will use the distinctive bladeless design, just like its brothers. The clear difference is also easy to point out, as the Dyson Pure Cool Tower is a real tower air purifier design concept, with 40 inches in height. This height means the Dyson Pure Cool Tower is even taller than such bulky devices like Levoit LV-H134 or GermGuardian AC9400W, and just only shorter than the 44-inch giant Blueair Pro XL.
If you are using a regular tower fan, you will get used to the size of the Dyson Pure Cool Tower quickly. This air purifier has the width of only 8 inches, making it possible to put anywhere in your home. One only problem is the total weight of Dyson Pure Cool Tower is only 8.4 lbs, and even with the solid metal body, it can be accidentally fallen by your child’s hands.
The bladeless amplifier of Dyson Pure Cool Tower has the same oval shape just like the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool, with the diameter of 4.3 inches. From here, you will enjoy the fresh air output from the air outlet. Dyson Pure Cool Tower uses the same bottom-to-top air flow system concept, and its air intake is made with perforated holes, so it can improve the trapping efficiency against large objects of pollutants, like hair, large dust and fur.
It doesn’t have the LCD display, as it is the advanced feature of the next-gen models, for example the new Dyson Pure Cool Tower TP04.

Dyson Pure Cool Tower Filters
- True HEPA filter – With the glass HEPA filter, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower is able to capture 99.97% all airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, including pollen, bacteria and pet dander.
- Activated Carbon filter – Removes household odors, smoke and gases.
The HEPA filter do all the job of trapping contaminants, and we can believe that Dyson Pure Cool Tower will finish any difficult tasks, especially when this company only makes high-quality air filter. In real-world use, combined with the high fan power, Dyson Pure Cool Tower can go head-to-head with any tough opponents, in terms of power alone.
I did a simple test for this Dyson Pure Cool Tower, in a room of 400 square feet and within 1 hour. 400 square feet is really large space for any device to test, especially when the time is as tight as 1 hour. To compare the performance, I will use 3 similar devices in the same price range: Oransi Max, Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 and Philips 2000i. You can see the below chart for the final result, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower is a great force with efficiency of 99.9% for trapping any contaminants as small as 0.3 microns.
With bigger size, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower needs a new air filter, and it will cost you $69 for one filter. You can get one on Amazon for (occasionally) cheaper price. Remember to change the air filter once a year.

Dyson Pure Cool Tower Room Coverage
The Dyson Pure Cool Tower serves a next level of room size for anyone, thanks to the strong air flow it can deliver. There is no suggestion for room size in Dyson website, but you can use this air purifier for any room of 500 square feet with ease.
Because this air purifier is also a fan, we don’t have the ACH and CADR ratings. Dyson told that high CADR rating doesn’t mean better, so they don’t quote any CADR score for their products. The maximum air flow of Dyson Pure Cool Tower is up to 114 gallons per second at max setting, equal 920 cfm. The air flow from Dyson Pure Cool Tower can even compare with the $2400 beast Blueair Pro XL.

Dyson Pure Cool Tower Sound
With such a strong fan power, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower only produces average noise for your room, as the fan is designed to be super quiet. At the lowest setting, you can hardly any sound from this air purifier, because the noise level is only 40 decibels (db), which is exactly the common noise level of library.
On highest speed, the noise level is a bit higher than any Dyson desktop models, and it can reach 62.2 decibels. To be honest, with such impressive air flow, you need to expect such noise at maximum power. However, such noise is only white noise, and sometimes it can help you sleep better.

Dyson Pure Cool Tower Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, an air purifier must be used for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is good or not.
The average power consumption of this Dyson Pure Cool Tower is measured to be 56 watts, and I am quite surprise because it has really high fan power, which can even cool your room. That being said, this Dyson Pure Cool Tower can save your energy bill better than a lot of other devices.
If you use the Dyson Pure Cool Tower 8 hours per day, you need to pay $20 each year.

Dyson Pure Cool Tower Additional Features
Well, just like the Dyson Pure Cool Link, beside the main feature to be an air purifier, the Dyson Pure Cool Tower is also a regular fan. You will get any additional features for a fan to work well, for example the oscillation setting to move the air back and forth, as well as 10 fan speed settings with uninterrupted stream of purified air flow (named Air Multiplier technology). This air purifier also has basic Timer setting.
The remote control is available, too, and it is magnetic and can be stick to the top of our today unit easily. It is quite simple and minimalism to use, with only one power button, one for changing fan speeds, one for oscillation setting and one to change the Timer.
Back to the air purifier part, we won’t have the smart features in this first-gen air purifier, such as Smart Sensor or Wi-Fi capability settings. If you need these high-end features, you will need to upgrade to the latest model of this Dyson Pure Cool Tower series – the Dyson TP04.
Dyson Pure Cool Tower Customer Service
Dyson is one of the best brands for their impressive customer service. Once you are their customer, they promise to help you even after your warranty has ended, one thing that not many brands dare to give.
To reach their support, you can either search by yourself in the thorough online guides, or you can contact them easily with line: 866-693-9766. If you can’t call them (they don’t mark Sunday as opening time), you can email them at email@example.com.
Most importantly, you should be their customer to have the exclusive VIP loyalty programs. Once registered for the warranty, you can enjoy Saving events to help you save 20% for next purchase, as well as reminders for free preventative maintenance checks at a Dyson Service Center. Finally, you will have a VIP hotline, to reach a 24/7 support with the new line: 866-664-9004.
Like many big brands, Dyson provides Free Shipping policy for their products. You can return order with another free shipping, as long as you are in a 30-day money back guarantee. This could be one of the most generous offers for refund among any air purifier brands.
Dyson only has a 2-year warranty for both labor and parts of their air purifiers. I believe it is reasonable to trust in the devices of this company.
Dyson Pure Cool Tower TP01 is the important upgrade of the regular fan made by this British company, adding a powerful air purifying system, with the core being a certified True HEPA filter (Certified Asthma and Allergy friendly of Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America). You can’t find any air purifier with near fan power as the Dyson Pure Cool Tower in the same price range, and you can’t find one even in the higher-range segment.

The golden choice for anyone who wants an air purifier with only $299 to $399.
