It’s modestly sized but can still cover a lot of square footage. The fan blows out both cold and hot air, so you can keep it around during colder months as well. It has several different operation modes, including a quiet mode to use while you’re sleeping and a maximum mode when you’re out during the day.

Dyson Purifier Cool TP07 — $544, was $650

Dyson

Dyson is highly regarded for its modern designs, and while the Dyson Cool TP07 is an air purifier at heart, it can also go a long way toward keeping a room cool. Everything Dyson makes is top-notch, including fans, hair curlers, blow dryers, and air purifiers, and that’s the reason why the brand is featured heavily in our top air purifiers for mold issues. It has a lot of power so that it can suck in micro-sized debris from far away. It uses a two-stage filtration process that traps the debris inside, and then it cycles air out through its powerful bladeless fan, cooling up to 1,000 square feet.
