College Football Stadiums Add Cooling Stations for Fans

Posted by Tony on September 4th, 2014

misting fanAfter a relatively mild summer, various parts of the country have been hit with some pretty steamy weather lately. In fact, New York’s hottest day of the year was just a few days ago. These high temperatures arrived right when many sports, most notably college football, kicked off their fall season. The surprisingly hot weather has caused several stadiums to add cooling stations and misting fans to their grounds.

For many people, college football means tailgating all day, walking around college campuses, and drinking alcohol. As temperatures rise into the 80s and higher, it’s important for fans to stay cool. Learn what college stadiums are doing to keep fans cool!

How to Make Quick Work of a Flooded Warehouse

Posted by Tony on August 12th, 2014

new-429-large_size_image-dri-eaz-sahara-pro-daisy-chainThe Atlanta area has literally been flooded with rain recently. Typically our summers look a lot like Florida: Scorching hot during the day with a few pop up showers in the afternoon. Lately it has been more like “take cover because a long, torrential downpour is on the way.”

All the rain this past weekend left one furniture store with quite a mess! Their basement, which serves as warehouse space with lots of valuable pieces, was completely flooded when rain leaked into their basement. By the time the skies cleared nearly a foot of standing water was present in some areas.

Luckily, a few sturdy Sylvane products came to the rescue. In fact, the water damage was taken care of by the end of the weekend, so it didn’t influence business come Monday morning. One of our popular shop vacs removed a large amount of the water and debris, before a few industrial fans removed excess moisture in the floors, wood, and boxes.

If you’re ever in the same predicament, these products could save you a lot of hassle and money. Let’s take a look at what happened:

Must-Haves For a Healthy, Clean Dorm Room

Posted by Tony on August 5th, 2014

collegeIs summer really almost over? If my morning commute was any indication, the answer is definitely yes. While the end of summer really only affects my commute and time spent at the pool, there are parents across the country sending kids off to college for the first time.

Described as “the best 4 years of your life,” college living situations (particularly old, dirty dorms) are generally less than ideal. I was in for quite a shock when I first walked into my dorm room–it was dusty, hot, and a far cry from the house I grew up in…and for better or worse, my college apartments never got much better.

So whether your child is off to college for the first time or heading back after summer, they’re probably entering a less-than-desirable living situation. Here are some must-have products to improve their air quality and keep them comfortable for the school year ahead.

Eva-Dry E-100 Eliminator Buckets

eva-dry-e-100-eliminator-bucketsThe Eva-Dry E-100 is a unique disposable product that removes moisture and odors for up to 60 days. Its carbon and micro-absorbing crystals absorb moisture, musty odors, and allergens from closets, storage bins, and other small areas. They’re ideal for college students who don’t have easy access to laundry facilities and are living in small dorm rooms with poor air quality.

Even better, they fit into any college student’s budget since they cost around $20. In fact, the Eliminator buckets are on sale right now! See more dorm room must-haves!

Sylvane Introduces Bathroom Fans to Product Line Up

Posted by Ashley on June 17th, 2014

Hot off the presses! We’ve added a new family of products to our ever-expanding catalog of indoor air quality solutions. Say hello to bathroom fans!

Did you know that all those steamy showers and bubble baths you take could be damaging your home’s infrastructure? That’s right. Prolonged humidity in your bathroom can trigger mold and mildew growth, cause paint and wallpaper to peel, and in more severe cases, even lead to wood rot inside your walls. If you find that your bathroom feels muggy after a shower and there’s condensation building up on your mirrors and windows, you might benefit from adding a bathroom fan.

Fanatical about Fans!

Posted by Ivey on July 22nd, 2013

vornado-tvh500-blk-lifestylWith morning temperatures registering at nearly 76 degrees F, there is no doubt that summer is officially here. While I am happy for the sunny, outdoor weather, I also live in a renovated bungalow that was originally built in the 1950s. Needless to say, uneven cooling throughout my otherwise-adorable home is a well-known problem, along with electric bills that rival the thermometer in terms of scary heights.

Like many who choose the charm of an older home, I’ve had to get creative with my cooling decisions to keep power bills within reason while, of course, maintaining a cool environment. Using fans to supplement my air conditioning has become my starting point for creating a comfortable home during the dog days of summer. In fact, Bob Vila points out that air conditioners not only account for roughly 25% of a home’s electricity costs, they also cost as much as 36 cents per hour to operate. Fans, on the other hand, only cost about a penny for the same operating time (when used on medium speed.)

Dyson AM04For many, the winter season means delicious baked goods, holiday time with family, and perfect weather for a cup of apple cider or a bowl of chili.
