There’s a lot of categories around for the best air purifier these days. There’s UV purifiers, plug-in purifiers, and even personal air purifiers. And if you decide you’re looking for the best personal air purifier, then you would do well to consider the Dyson Cool Me for its low power consumption and long filter life.

Why We Like It – Dyson Cool Me

The Dyson Cool Me does double duty as both a personal fan and a personal purifier. The True HEPA Filter captures contaminants instead of just dispersing them like most other personal air purifiers and the Core Flow Technology blasts streams of cool air to wherever you want it to go.

  • Low Power Consumption
  • Long Filter Life
  • Comes with a Remote Control
  • Not Concrete Space Coverage
  • Can’t Be Worn Around Your Neck
  • Loud for a Personal Air Purifier


The Dyson Air Personal Purifying Fan is an excellent personal fan/purifier combo that’s adjustable so you can have air flow directly at you. The Core Flow Technology blasts concentrated cool air at you by pushing two streams of air together. If you prefer your air purification to be a little more traditional, try the AirTamer A310. On the plus side, power consumption on the Dyson is low and will only cost you about $12/year to run.


Dyson Pure Cool Air Purifiers are, by and large, personal air purifiers and thus won’t have as great a coverage as dedicated room purifiers. However, the Dyson Cool Me may earn distinction here in that it doesn’t give exact coverage. It’s not even available on the Dyson site. Considering its size we’re guessing 15-25 square feet, considering that’s what most personal air purifiers cover. But check out the AVICHE Necklace Wearable Mini for something more concrete.


The Dyson Cool Me Personal Cooling Fan uses a True HEPA Filter for purified air free of pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and microns as small as 0.3 microns. If you’d like something specifically for smoke, consider the Smoke Buddy Air Filter. The HEPA Filter life on the Dyson is also quite impressive. If you use it every day for 12 hours per day it should still be good for a whole year. More if you use it less than that!


The Cool Me Personal Fan weighs only five pounds and should be easy to move from room to room, but not so easy to wear around your neck like most other personal air purifiers. It also has 10 adjustable fan speeds so you can set it to your own personal preference, but it’s noise level hovers around 35-65dB. It’s impressive for a fan, but a little loud for a personal air purifier.


The Dyson Link App isn’t compatible with this model of Cool Me and neither is Alexa. Still, it comes with a remote control which will be essential in controlling the device since the onboard controls are rather limited. The Cool Me does come in white silver though, so at least there are options there. And despite its high price, it’s always a good idea to review Dyson products for your air quality needs.

Dyson Cool Me Wrap Up

It’s never a bad idea to go with a Dyson product, you just have to know what you’re getting into. The Cool Me can’t be worn around your neck like other personal air purifiers, and it’s little loud considering it doubles as a fan, but its air purification abilities and long filter life are among the best we’ve seen so far.
