Right on cue for the autumnal shift, out pops James Dyson to invent another air-based product: the Dyson Hot.
Adding to his portfolio of vacuum cleaners, hand dryers and the Cool List-awarded Air Multiplier bladeless fan, is the Dyson Hot heater. It promises to warm your environs to a tropical 37 degrees (or less) with none of the burnt dust smell or inefficiency of trad fan heaters.
In essence, the Dyson Hot is an Air Multiplier fan, but with a ceramic stone heating element that warms the air from its jet-inspired blow system that blasts the air in a forward stream (not just upward) to heat every crevice of your room.
And there’s no need to buy a separate Air Multiplier, as the Dyson Hot can also cool your room, ready for when summer swings by again.
Thanks to a neat curved control that rests on the upper arc when out of use, you won’t even need to leave your seat. And if you do get up and trip over the fan, it’ll cut out instantly, saving you another trip to the phone to call the fire brigade.
The Dyson Hot is out now, priced £270, initially as a John Lewis exclusive. It’ll be more widely available from October.
