Dyson TP04 vs AM11: compare and choose the best one
Dyson TP04 vs AM11: which unit wins the debate? Dyson has become synonymous with high-quality air cleaners, and its latest model from the Tower series, the TP04, is no exception. The question is whether it is better than the Amplifier, particularly the Am11.
The first set of the Tower series was launched by Dyson in 2011. Since then, the company has released several models from the range. Today, the Tower Air Purifier TP04 remains one of the best selling Dyson models.
As you and I would agree, all air purifiers are meant to remove dust particles, pollutants and allergens from the air by passing them through a HEPA filter or activated carbon. While some models deliver a decent performance, they lack effectiveness in removing odors. In such cases, odor filters come in handy.
According to the EPA, air purifiers should remove at least 99.97% of bacteria, viruses, mold spores, pollen and smoke. But then, if you are considering buying either the Dyson AM11 or TP04, you may want to have a quick look at what both units have to offer such as the features.
