Where to put the Dyson Fan?
According to Dyson, the best place to set your fan is in the room where you and your loved ones spend most of their time. Dyson strongly suggests when you are setting up your fan—ensure that there are a few feet of space around all sides of the fan for air to circulate correctly.
Do not have the fan close to a wall or in an enclosed area—it will prevent air circulation that is vital for the machine to operate properly.
The Dyson fans are lightweight and easy to move. You could move it to different rooms in your home to circulate the air and remove harmful pollutants, for example.
If you have a dinner party and plan to spend the majority of the evening in your dining room, set the Dyson fan in the dining room a couple of hours before your guests arrive to remove stale air and improve the breathability in the room. After the dinner party, return this small appliance to its regular setting place.
Do Dyson fans cool down a room?
Dyson fans and air purifiers are not manufactured with air conditioning or any cooling components. These fans will not cool down the room like an air conditioner. Instead, they will continuously circulate the air that will cool the room a bit and assist in dispersing the cool AC air in your house or office.
Many consumers have been confused by some of the Dyson fans' titles, such as "The Dyson Cooling Tower." This product does circulate the air in small apartments or large rooms. However, it is not an air conditioner, and it will not change the room's temperatures --only circulate the room's air.
Can you leave a Dyson fan on all the time?
How long you could safely leave a Dyson fan on will depend on a few variables. Firstly, which Dyson model you have and where it is in the home. Secondly, if you use a heater setting fan, the unit will automatically shut off the fan once the appliance has reached the programmed temperature.
Leaving a fan or any secondary appliance running when you are not home is not advisable for safety reasons.
Also, to note: the Dyson company does not directly state whether its fans should or can be left on continuously. Rather, they mention using the digital programming features to achieve comfortable temperatures and excellent air quality in your home via timed usage rather than continually running the fans.

Does the Dyson fan use a lot of electricity?
According to the cooling and heating research group, Temperature Master, a Dyson cool air multiplier fan's average power rating used per hour is 26 watts. In comparison, a standard tabletop fan uses 50 watts, which means the Dyson fan utilizes nearly half the electrical wattage.
Moreover, these energy estimates will vary depending on the model, room temperature, time of use, energy costs based on location, and where the fan is in the house.
The Dyson Cool Tower fan is excellent for large rooms. This fans' estimated electrical usage ranges between 6 to 56 watts depending on the power settings. Suppose this unit was used daily for a year. It would utilize roughly 490 units (kWh) of electricity, far less than other floor fans that don't offer air purifier features or wifi connection capabilities.
How much does it cost to run a Dyson fan overnight?
Firstly, to determine the cost, you must know the exact Dyson fan model and how many hours the fan was on overnight. Research the price per kilowatt of energy where you live. The best way to do this is to visit your energy companies website and find the current energy costs.
Depending on your electric company, they may offer an energy usage calculator where you could type your hours of electrical usage and the wattage of the fan to determine the exact costs to run your fan overnight.
Please remember that the cost of kilowatts does fluctuate throughout the year, depending upon several variables:
- Where you live
- What power sources your electric company uses
- The time of year
To roughly estimate the energy costs per night. Multiply the number of power use watts by the number of hours of energy usage. For example, if the fan uses 56 watts and is running overnight for 10 hours and the cost per kilowatt is 0.10, the final price for the overnight usage is 0.0560 =$0.56.
