There are no blades – just an uninterrupted stream of smooth air. In heater mode, two PTC ceramic plates heat the air as it’s projected into the room. These plates never exceed 392-DegreeF, so they don’t burn dust and there’s no worrying burning smell. The temperature can be set to the degree, from 33F to 99F and the airflow velocity can be precisely adjusted – either at the base of the machine or from the remote control, which attaches to the machine magnetically. The Dyson Hot + Cool fan heater draws in up to 6 gallons of air per second, generating high airflow and air velocity, for improved personal cooling. The machine cuts out automatically if it’s tipped over and there are no visible heating elements or blades. Both visually appealing and effective, the Dyson Hot+Cool fan heater is a perfect pick for mom this holiday season.
