Dyson Hot

We have a wood stove, practically no insulation, and there are a lot of days, and nights, where we are chilly but don't want to light the wood stove.  You can't just take the chill off of a room with a wood stove, you are cooked out.  Maybe the pros can do it but Kris and I sure can't.  If we light a fire when we are only chilly we end up with the fire going and the windows open and even the Dyson fan on.  Weird I know. 

When I heard that Dyson was coming out with a new Dyson Hot fan heater I was pretty excited about it!  This is just what we need for when its not cold enough for a fire but chilly.  We have had the Dyson Hot for weeks now and are even more in love with it than I could have imagined.  Kris usually has to get up in the middle of the night, when its cold out, to continue to add wood to the wood stove through the night.  Hes usually up to pee but it sucks for sure. 

Now what we do is just set the Dyson Hot fan heater for the temperature we want and as soon as the temperature drops below that it comes right on.  The Dyson Hot feels great pointed right at my feet while I am vegging out on the couch or blogging away but it doesn't just heat where its pointed!  It heats the whole room, and easily, it doesn't take hours to heat up our living room.  So much faster and much more efficient as well.

I love its totally safe for kids because there is no exposed element to burn themselves on.  I love that if its getting to hot the Dyson Hot turns on the fan to cool the room down to the temperature you set it to.  I love that its small and doesn't take up lots of room yet can heat the entire room faster and more efficiently than a full size heater.  I love that its so easy to keep clean, just a quick wipe with a damp cloth and its like new.  I love that it comes in an awesome blue color.  I love that with just a touch of the finger you can point it up or down and that it oscillates and is very quiet!  I think I just love it :)

Dyson Hot™ features smart technology that can be set between 32 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit to heat a room. Dyson Hot™ monitors the room temperature by measuring surrounding air. If a drop is detected, the heater turns back on to maintain the desired temperature.

“Fan heaters rely on inefficient motors or dust friendly grilles. As the heat rises you’re left with a partially heated room and a worrying burning smell. We’ve developed a heater that heats the whole room, without you having to constantly adjust the temperature.”

It took 22 engineers – including experts in thermo dynamics and fluid mechanics – over three years to research, develop and test Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier™ technology for its application in a heater.

How it works: Using patented Air Multiplier™ technology, air is drawn in through a mixed flow impeller, a combination of the technologies used in turbochargers and jet engines. It is then accelerated through a 2.5mm aperture set within the loop amplifier. This creates a jet of hot air which passes over an airfoil-shaped ramp channeling its direction. Surrounding air is drawn into the airflow, amplifying it six times in a process known as inducement and entrainment.

Safety features: Dyson Hot™ has low surface temperatures throughout and no visible heating elements. And if tipped over, the machine has been engineered to automatically cut out.

Remote Control: Turning the Dyson Hot™ on and off, adjusting temperature, airflow rate and controlling oscillation can be done easily from across a room. The remote control is curved and magnetised to store neatly on top of the machine.

Precision: Dyson Hot™ has temperature controls and an intelligent thermostat. Variable airflow and oscillation is controlled either by remote or on the front of the machine.

Cooling fan: Unlike conventional heaters it has a dual-mode function as a cooling fan. In keeping with Dyson’s Air Multiplier™ range it couples high airflow and velocity.

Dyson Hot™ is available at on and most major Canadian retailers at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $449

The Dyson Hot is available in a sleek iron/blue or elegant white/silver, is very easy to clean, no little nooks and crannies, just a quick wipe of a damp cloth, and it only weighs just over 5 lbs. 

· Guarantee – Dyson Hot™ has been tested for the equivalent of 10 years of constant use and comes with a two year parts and labor guarantee.
