Is Air Pollution Making Us Fat?

Posted by Allison on April 27th, 2012

fat bellyYou know breathing clean air benefits your lungs and heart. But what about your waistline?

More and more researchers are uncovering links between obesity and long-term exposure to toxins, chemicals, and compounds.

A recent hypothesis suggests that rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the environment might be contributing to the obesity epidemic in our country. The idea is that breathing too much CO2 causes our blood to become more acidic, which triggers neurons that regulate appetite, sleep, and metabolism to fire more rapidly. As a result, we could be eating more, sleeping less, and gaining more weight.

March Air Quality Evangelists

Posted by Allison on March 26th, 2012

Air Quality EvangelistsLast month, we announced the launch of our new Air Quality Evangelist program. The goal of this project is to celebrate other blogs and websites that appreciate good air quality and provide insight on how you can improve yours.

Now it’s time to announce this month’s Air Quality Evangelists!

SafeMama SafeMama

Kathy Scoleri is a web designer, author, and mother of two boys. When she was expecting her first child in 2007 – and spending hours researching Bisphenol-A, hormone mimicking chemicals, and toy recalls – she knew she couldn’t be the only parent scouring the web for this information. So she created SafeMama to keep it all in one place.

Winning Post: There are many choices you can make to Keep Toxic Chemicals Out Of Your Home. In this article, SafeMama hits some major points – from losing the shoes while inside to using HEPA-filtered vacuums.

Pollen Contest: Show Your Yellow, Win Some Green!

Posted by Allison on March 23rd, 2012

It’s springtime, and you know what that means: yellow-covered everything. Especially here in Atlanta, where pollen counts are breaking records and a sick yellow tinge coats the city streets. For allergy-sufferers, this is devastating. So we wanted to give you something to smile about.

Send us a picture of your pollen-covered car, and you’ll be entered to win a free $50 Visa gift card!

Car Covered in PollenThat should cover a few good car washes to rinse away that nasty pollen.

Post your photo on our Facebook page, tweet us a link, or email it to us at contest@sylvane.com. On April 6th, the most pollen-soaked car will win a $50 Visa gift card!

Show us how desperately your car needs a good cleaning. Send us your photo today!

And remember to keep those windows rolled up and wash your clothes when you get inside. That pollen settles quickly on our cars, but there are steps you can take to keep it out of your home.

Good luck!

Air Quality Evangelists Badge

When it comes to creating a safe and healthy indoor environment, the more you know, the better. However, sometimes online research can lead to an overwhelming amount of options.

That’s why we created the Air Quality Evangelist project!

Each month, we will scour the web for the best blogs and websites you can confidently add to your list of air treatment resources. These sites may focus on allergies, asthma, green living, air quality, anything – most importantly, they have a deep appreciation for breathing clean and healthy air. At the end of the month, we will choose our top picks and name a few Air Quality Evangelists.

An Air Quality Evangelist is someone who appreciates the importance of healthy indoor air and celebrates products and lifestyle choices that can help improve the quality of the air you breathe. Air Quality Evangelist blogs are invited to sport the Air Quality Evangelist badge so you can spot them easily.

Introducing the Santa Fe Impact XT Dehumidifier!

Posted by Ashley on February 15th, 2012

Santa Fe Impact XT DehumidifierThere’s a new Santa Fe dehumidifier on the block and it has officially given new meaning to the phrase “energy efficient dehumidifier.” As the most energy efficient freestanding dehumidifier on the market, the Santa Fe Impact XT Dehumidifier exceeds Energy Star standards by roughly 50%, doubling the moisture removal rate of many conventional high-capacity dehumidifiers. A true pioneer in its class, this workhorse unit eliminates musty, humid conditions in your basement or crawl space while reducing your energy bill and being easier on the environment.

Like all Energy Star dehumidifiers, the Impact XT is built with super-efficient internal components and uses eco-friendly R-410A refrigerant. These improvements alone mean you’ll save up to $220 over the operating life of the unit. The Impact takes your potential savings further with its uniquely high Energy Factor. A standard measurement of efficiency for dehumidifiers, Energy Factor refers to the amount of moisture removed in liters per kilowatt hour of energy consumed (L/kWh).

Miele S6270 TopazJust in time for a last minute gift idea or wish list item, a new line of Miele vacuums is available at Sylvane. Rated highly by leading consumer reporting agencies, Miele vacuum cleaners are known for their easy steering and exceptional filtration.

IQ Air Healthpro Plus Air PurifierDo any amount of air purifier shopping these days and you’ll quickly learn it’s no secret that not all air purifiers are created equal.

You’ll see air purifiers designed to relieve allergies and asthma, combat odors, reduce chemical sensitivities, filter out smoke, fight pet dander, kill germs, and even help restore your air quality after a flood. In most cases, each type of air purifier features varying attributes and differing levels of filtration that make them effective in solving a specific problem. It’s not often you find an air cleaner that can address a wide range of indoor air quality issues sufficiently. Add to that a user-friendly but feature-rich control panel as well as the product’s ability to provide a great lifetime value—and you’ve got a winner on your hands.

With that, let me introduce (or re-introduce) you to the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier, our newly chosen Sylvane Air Purifier Category Winner.

Save Big on Popular Space Heaters

Posted by Diamond on October 21st, 2011

Sylvane Heater SaleWe’re only one month into the beautiful Fall season and half of the U.S. is already seeing chilly, windy weather that feels more like winter. Yesterday, with the low here in the mid-30s, I had to pull out my old faithful space heater for the first time since January and boy was it a lifesaver! Portable heaters are great for days when it’s not cold enough to run your central heating unit. They also serve as an efficient source of supplemental heat to your central system, leading to significant savings on rising energy costs.

There are so many benefits of using a personal space heater; I could go on and on. So if you don’t already have one, there’s no time like the present. Just in time for cool Fall nights, our most popular space heaters from top brands are on sale for up to 25% off the original price now through October 31st.
