In this Dyson TP00 vs TP04 review, we will compare two popular air purifiers from the Singapore-based brand for household appliances.
Both models can be used as an air purifier and cooling fan at the same time. Both are certified asthma and allergy friendly. But is the entry-level Dyson Pure Cool TP00 enough for your needs, or should you rather invest in the more advanced Dyson Pure Cool TP04?
This side-by-side comparison will help you find out.

Comparison: Dyson TP00 vs TP04 – What are the Differences?
Dyson recommends the TP00 for rooms with a surface area of up to 30 m² (322 ft²). The TP04 is suitable for rooms with a size of up to 55 m² (600 ft²). While both purifiers could be used in even bigger rooms, the Air Changes Per Hour (ACH) would decrease accordingly.
The TP00 and TP04 combine Dyson’s Air Multiplier technology with oscillation to project purified air evenly across the room. With the TP00, you are limited to 70 degrees oscillation. With the TP04, you can choose between 45, 90, 180, and 350 degrees.

Clean Air Delivery Rate
Unfortunately, Dyson has not disclosed the Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) for the TP00. But with the TP01 having a CADR of 70 m³/h, we can assume that the number for the TP00 is somewhat similar. The TP04, on the other hand, comes with a CADR of 90 m³/h.
Capable of removing up to 99.97% of pollutants and allergens including pollen, dust, and pet dander as small as 0.3 μm, both devices are certified for being asthma and allergy-friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
90 m³/h (Particles)
Running at full speed, the TP00 generates up to 62 decibels (dB) of noise. Although that is technically less than the 63 dB of the TP04, you will most certainly not be able to hear the difference. In sleep mode, however, the TP04 is significantly quieter than the TP00.
And unlike the TP00, the TP04 can be set to automatic mode, in which the device will only run as fast and therefore as loud as necessary. Once air quality is back to normal levels, it will decrease the fan speed accordingly.

Sensors & Display
Intelligent sensors provide the TP04 with the current temperature, humidity, and pollution levels inside the room. Changes are detected almost in real-time and can be used as input for the automatic mode (see above).
With the TP04, the current Air Quality Index (AQI) and details about the PM 2.5, PM 10, VOCs, NO2, SO2, temperature, humidity, and filter life can be viewed on a built-in LCD screen and on your smartphone (see below). The TP00 only displays the current fan speed on a LED screen.

Connectivity & Compatibility
Aside from changing settings on the device itself, there are three ways to interact with the TP04. First, there is the remote which allows you to turn the purifier on and off, change oscillation, speed levels, set a timer, and activate auto or night mode.
You can also monitor and control the purifier remotely using a Wi-Fi connection, your smartphone, and the Dyson Link app. Lastly, the TP04 also supports voice control via Amazon Alexa. The TP00, on the other hand, does not come with Wi-Fi capabilities.

Weight & Dimensions
In the final round of this Dyson TP00 vs TP04 comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of both air purifiers. At just 3.7 kg (8.2 lbs) and taking up less space than a A4 paper, the TP00 is both the lighter and smaller device of the two.

Conclusion: Dyson TP00 vs TP04 – Which is the Better Air Purifier?
The Dyson Pure Cool TP00 is an option for you if you have a small room and are looking for an air purifier that can act as a fan at the same time. While it does what it is supposed to do, features are held to a bare minimum – it is attractively priced, however.
If you want the more advanced model, go with the Dyson Pure Cool TP04. It is the first device of the TP series that combines a display with real-time information with the ability to interact with your smartphone or voice assistant, all the while being the more powerful purifier.
