Five years ago, Dyson reinvented the conventional electric fan by developing patented Air Multiplier technology to get rid of those unpleasant, buffeting blades. Since then, Dyson engineers have been relentlessly improving Air Multiplier technology and, 650 prototypes later, they’ve developed even quieter and more energy efficient fans – introducing the AM06 desk fan, AM07 tower fan, and AM08 pedestal fan.
The new Dyson Cool fans have been engineered to be quieter – up to 75% quieter than the previous generation, and use up to 40% less energy – yet still generate powerful airflow. To lower noise levels, the new Dyson Cool™ fans house a Helmholtz cavity, designed to capture and dissipate audible motor noise. How does a Helmholtz cavity work?
When air is forced into the Helmholtz the pressure inside increases, catching soundwaves through the machine. These waves are then bounced within the cavity, dissipating the sound, and cancelling specific tones. Airflow paths have also been streamlined, so that air passes through the machine more quietly and with greater efficiency – meaning the motor can run more slowly, using less energy.
They’ve even been accredited with Quiet Mark – the international mark of approval awarded by the UK Noise Abatement Society. Quiet Mark lets Dyson owners know that they can expect great Dyson performance that’s easy on the ear.
As well as being quieter and more energy efficient, the new range of Dyson Cool fans also come with a remote control, which is magnetised to store neatly on the machine. There are ten precise airflow settings, which can be controlled by the remote or by the soft-touch button at the base of the fan.
A sleep timer can switch the fan off after pre-set intervals ranging from 15 minutes to 9 hours, handy for those hot summer nights. For whole room high velocity air projection, there is smooth oscillation. And it pivots on its own centre of gravity, staying put without clamping. Because there are no blades, it is easy to clean, and safe – which makes it perfect for the whole family.
