Dyson Bladeless Fans Offer a New Way to Cool

Posted by Diamond on June 24th, 2011

Dyson AM01Earlier this month, we expressed great excitement over the recent addition of two new product lines to the Sylvane catalog, including Dyson air multiplier fans. Now that we’re halfway through the first week of summer, it’s the perfect time to test these high-tech fans out.

Since revolutionizing the way we clean our homes with the Dyson vacuum cleaner, Dyson has led the appliance industry in technology and innovation. After seeing their latest product launch up close and personal, let me be the first to say Dyson air multipliers are no exception. Be prepared to throw everything you thought you knew about fans out of the window.

Extreme Weather Can Worsen Indoor Air Quality

Posted by Ashley on June 17th, 2011

lightning stormEarlier this week, a string of bad storms blew through metro Atlanta, at one point leaving 100,000 homes—my entire neighborhood included—without power. Shortly after we lost electricity and realized it wasn’t coming back on anytime soon, my husband and I began lighting every candle in the house to help supplement our two lone flashlights that definitely were not making the cut. Remembering the importance of indoor air ventilation and how candle soot can damage your indoor air quality, I cracked open a few windows to help get airflow moving.

This apparently wasn’t enough. Within a half-hour, my eyes began to feel irritated; I could feel my lungs growing tighter; and the humid, stale, un-conditioned air felt clammy and downright unhealthy. Eventually, we had to get outside for some fresh air relief. It was then that it dawned on me—we were experiencing the negative effects that extreme weather can have on your indoor air quality. It was a strange coincidence. After all, I was working on a blog about this very subject.

It’s not even officially summer yet and cities across America are already experiencing highs in the mid-90s. With such warm temperatures outside, we are left with no choice but to put our ACs into overdrive to keep comfortable inside. But what about those of us who don’t have a central AC or people who live in small studio apartments with too little window space for a window air conditioner?

Don’t worry. Sylvane has you covered. Here to the rescue is our new collection of through-the-wall air conditioners. These ACs will keep your space comfortably cool, while saving you plenty of window space to enjoy the bright, sunny views of the season!

Sylvane Now Carries a Full Selection of Dyson Vacuums and Fans

Dyson Logo Image This past month of May was truly one of excitement in the halls of Sylvane as we prepared for not one, but two major brands to join our online catalog. I told you about our first major addition, Miele vacuums, last week. (Be sure to check out my blog Introducing Miele Vacuums if you missed it!) This week, feast your eyes on the latest brand to join our vacuum and fan categories—UK-based Dyson!

You’ve probably seen Dyson products at your local big-box store. The high-tech, ball-bearing upright Dyson vacuums never fail to catch my eye on my shopping trips and get me dreaming of an easier way to clean. More recently, you’ve likely also encountered the swanky bladeless Dyson air multipliers on the shelves just in time for summer. While big-box stores are known for their sometimes unbeatable deals and upper hand in convenience, one thing they often lack is variety.
