Dyson Cool™ AM08 Pedestal Fan, White

Product information

Powerful air projection. No blades.

The Dyson Cool™ AM08 standing fan generates smooth, powerful airflow for personal cooling. Like every other Dyson bladeless silent fan, it uses Air Multiplier™ technology to draw in surrounding air, creating powerful air projection.

Some fans are quiet but weak; others are powerful but noisy. AM08 is both quiet and powerful, demonstrating a silent fan for your home. Dyson engineers have reduced turbulence and noise throughout the machine by channelling airflow more efficiently. Motor noise and vibration have been isolated and significantly reduced.

AM08 now houses a Helmholtz cavity, designed to capture and dissipate noise from the motor – which has been calibrated to run slower whilst maintaining powerful airflow.

There’s also a remote control for precise airflow control, and the AM08 has a sleep timer which can be programmed to turn off after preset intervals, for ease of use throughout the night.

All Dyson machines are tested rigorously during development, so the AM08 comes with a 2 year parts and labour guarantee.

Key features:

  • Air Multiplier™ technology – air is accelerated through an annular aperture, drawing in surrounding air to project smooth, powerful, high-velocity airflow.
  • Safe – this cooling fan has no fast-spinning blades.
  • Acoustic engineering – streamlined air channels for reduced airflow turbulence. Awarded the Quiet Mark by the Noise Abatement Society.
  • Energy efficient – engineered to create powerful airflow using 15% less energy than AM03.
  • Sleep timer – AM08 can be programmed to turn off after preset intervals ranging from 15 minutes to 9 hours.
  • Remote control – 10 precise airflow settings. Curved and magnetised to store neatly on the machine.
  • Oscillation control – to project air around the room. One touch for smoother oscillation.
  • Easy height adjust and touch tilt- pivots on its own centre of gravity, staying put without clamping.
  • Easy to clean – this silent fan has no awkward grilles or blades.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dyson Cool Pedestal Fan This fan is amazing, it has kept me cool throughout the hot summer. It's very quiet and can be kept on a low setting for ages. It is operated through a remote control and has a useful timing option, so that you can set it to go off in 15 minute intervals. 21 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ticks every box Lightweight, maneuverable and quiet this fan also has a sleep timer. I am happy when my flat is at 16 degrees so this has been an easily justifiable purchase with temperatures reaching 28 degrees indoors. As an independant wheelchair user I found it easy to assemble myself and the remote control makes it easy for me to control. Expensive but worth it. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very quiet product Very quiet and the timer is a useful addition so in case you go into deep sleep you 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best fan ever! The product presented in a compact box and was easy to assemble. Simple to operate with the remote control, the big plus point is that at lower levels it is virtually silent and at the higher settings much quieter than a conventional bladed fan. This is a well made, easy to clean and good looking machine, slightly pricey, but worth the money. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the Ticket An excellent fan as one would expect from Dyson. can be a little noisy at higher speeds but on the lower speeds it is very quiet. We use it in our main bedroom and even on the lower speeds the room is kept comfortable and cool. It is also very versatile in that the head can be raised up and down and it also oscillates. As far as we are concerned it is an excellent purchase. 13 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much better than a fan, not as good as air-con I live in a purpose built flat in central London and like to keep the windows closed due to pollution and because I am a light sleeper. This is fine in the winter but the summer months are too hot and I have to open them. I am not able to have air-conditioning installed and I know that normal fans just push air around so I have been looking for a solution for some time. When I heard that the Dyson AM08 was 35% quieter than the AM03, I did my research and it appeared to be quiet enough to use in my bedroom. The package is relatively small and light and I was able to take it home on the tube. Setting it up took only a few minutes and the build quality is excellent. In terms of performance, it is mid-way between a fan and air-conditioning. It isn't as powerful or effective as air conditioning but is light years ahead of a fan. It is very impressive how it cools my bedroom with a small amount of airflow. In terms of noise, I would compare it to typical air-conditioning. If you have no problems sleeping in a room with air-conditioning, you won't have any problems sleeping in a room with the AM08. If you are a light sleeper, you may not want to turn it up past level 5 but that is more than enough to cool most rooms. The only problem I have with it so far is that the display is very bright and cannot be disabled which is a problem for bedroom use. I am able to cover it which completely eliminates all light but I think it should be a feature of the fan. I have no regrets about my purchase and, like everything in life, you get what you pay for. 14 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK but over-priced Very stylish, but for a fan, it's expensive. Works well, does what it's supposed to do & provides adequate cooling, nothing more. Noise levels acceptable, even on highest (10). Remote function is good. Can't work out if it's possible to dim the blue LED lights at the base, which I found annoying as they are quite bright, especially noticeable when using the fan at night to cool the bedroom. 30 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good, but... I bought one of these and an AM07. My team and I agree that the AM08 is pretty good, but the AM07 seems to do a better job. 29 July 2014
