Dyson TP09 vs TP10

In this Dyson TP09 vs TP10 review, we will compare the flagship model of the TP series with the recently released mid-level device.

Both can not only be used to purify the surrounding air, but also to keep you cool during hot summer days. The colouring aside, they look rather alike. So how do the two variations differ, and which one is the better fit for your needs?

This side-by-side comparison will help you find out.

Comparison: Dyson TP09 vs TP10 – What are the Differences?

Coverage Area & Efficiency

The TP09 is suitable for rooms with a surface area of up to 36 m² (384 ft²), while the TP10 is able to purify up to 24 m² (258 ft²). In both instances, the coverage area is based on two air changes per hour (ACH) and a ceiling height of 8 ft (2.4 m).

If you suffer from allergies or asthma, or simply live in an area with elevated pollution levels, and thus require five ACH, the recommended room size would drop to 14 m² (153 ft²) and 10 m² (103 ft²), respectively.

Winner: TP09

Up to 36 m² (384 ft²)

Up to 24 m² (258 ft²)

Clean Air Delivery Rate

The TP09 and TP10 rely on Dyson’s 360 Combi Glass HEPA + Carbon air purifier filter to first remove 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, and then neutralize odours and gases including VOCs using activated carbon.

With a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 171 m³/h for particles and 49 m³/h for formaldehyde, the TP09 is more efficient than the TP10 at doing so. Both models are fully sealed to HEPA H13 standard, ensuring that the captured pollutants stay inside the machine.

Working Noise

Operating at just 32 decibels (dB) when set to night mode, the TP09 is the better choice for the light sleepers. Running at full speed, the two purifiers are tied with a maximum noise level of around 60 dB each.

Both models support auto mode, in which they will automatically adjust their fan speed based on air quality. As soon as pollution levels start to decrease again after a sudden spike, their fan speed and noise level will drop accordingly.

Winner: TP09

32 – 60 dB(A)

41 – 60 dB(A)

Sensors & Display

To gather the real-time data needed for the auto mode, the TP09 and TP10 use a particulate and a gas sensor to keep track of the amount of pollutants in the air. The TP09 is also fitted with a humidity and temperature sensor.

You can always view the current air quality using the LCD screen found on both devices. With the TP09, much more detailed information such as 24H AQI, PM 2.5, PM 10, VOCs, NO2, SO2 statistics are available through the Dyson Link app (see below).

Connectivity & Compatibility

You can monitor and control the TP09 remotely using a Wi-Fi connection and the Dyson Link app on your smartphone. If you have your hands full, for example while cooking, you can even interact with it using your voice.

It is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and Google Assistant, and can thus seemingly be integrated with your smart home. The TP10, on the other hand, does not have such capabilities, meaning you have to do with the included remote.

Weight & Dimensions

In the final round of this Dyson TP09 vs TP10 comparison, we will have a quick look at the weight and dimensions of the two devices. Technically speaking, the TP09 takes up less space, while the TP10 is less heavy – but the differences are barely noticeable.

4.73 kg, 248 x 248 x 1050 mm


Conclusion: Dyson TP09 vs TP10 – Which is the Better Air Purifier?

The Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde TP09 has a larger coverage area and higher CADR. At the same time, it operates at a lower noise level, is equipped with more advanced sensors, and can be seemingly integrated with your smart home.

If you have no intentions of monitoring and controlling your purifier remotely and a not too big room, the Dyson Purifier Cool Gen1 TP10 might be worth a closer look. Like its competitor, it can purify and cool, supports auto mode, but is available at a lower price.
