How Ionizers Keep Your Home Fresh

Posted by Cierra on July 29th, 2011

Waterfalls are good sources of negative ions.If you’ve been looking for an air purifier lately, you may have noticed several that include ionizers. Though they’re beginning to appear practically everywhere, ionizers are common features found in air purifiers, fans and air circulators, heaters, and swamp coolers. But what, exactly, is an ionizer—and why should you invest in a product with one?

In short, ionizers emit ions—charged particles—to help an air purifier’s filters trap contaminants in your indoor environment. Many of our air purifiers, such as the Honeywell HFD-120-Q Tower air purifier, now feature ionizers to capture particles that otherwise would be too small to filter out. This is extremely helpful if you have allergies, asthma, or chemical sensitivities, as ionic air purifiers more effectively remove pollutants ranging from pollen, mold, dust, and pet dander to viruses, smoke, odors, and chemical toxins.

But in addition to boosting air quality, ionic air purifiers also reduce static electricity, improve your mood, and help ward off fatigue. So how can such a simple mechanism have so many positive effects?

Posted by Ivey on January 13th, 2011

Vornado PVH Panel Vortex HeaterWhen the weather forecast called for a wintry mix on January 9, like many Atlantans, I sat back and eagerly anticipated a snow day.

Choosing a Vornado heater to keep my bedroom warm and toasty was a great decision. Find out more about the Vornado PVH Vortex Heater

Keep Your Office Space Warm and Toasty with the QMark Work Warmer

Posted by Ivey on December 3rd, 2010

QMark 202SLB Under Desk HeaterI’m pretty sure that my desk is located in some bitterly cold northern land. Although I see my co-workers using fans during the warm summer months and sitting comfortably jacketless during the cooler months, I’m not convinced that their desks are really in the same office building as mine. I am always cold. So when it’s time to test drive desk heaters, I am the first to volunteer. Recently, I tried out the QMark 202SLB Radiant Under Desk Heater.

Posted by Ivey on October 8th, 2010

Honeywell HZ-817 2 in 1 Whole Room Baseboard HeaterI must admit, fall is my favorite season—cool weather, warm colors, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin-flavored treats! However, the first chilly evening of this season was bittersweet. I realized that while my trusty Honeywell heater kept me cozy on the couch, it wasn’t powerful enough to heat my larger bedroom. Lucky for me (and you!), several of our heaters received top ratings from a leading consumer reporting agency.

Electric Fireplaces Provide Warmth and Ambiance

Posted by Ivey on November 13th, 2009

Southern Enterprises Marquis Electric FireplaceFor many of us, the chill of winter makes us long for the snap, crackle, and pop of a cozy fire. However, installing a fireplace in our homes isn’t always an option due to financial reasons or property constraints (i.e., condos and apartments). Luckily, Sylvane has the next best thing (which, in some cases, may be even better). This week, we added a group of stylish and economical electric fireplaces to our extensive collection of portable heaters.

Electric fireplaces, like those manufactured by Southern Enterprises, are quickly becoming safer, low-hassle alternatives to built-in fireplaces. With traditional fireplaces, you have to consider what type of fireplace and features you want, where it will fit in your home, who will install it (Will you install it yourself or hire contractors?)—plus, you may need a building permit, which could take weeks to get!

Coming Soon: The World’s Smartest Heater

Posted by John on November 16th, 2008

Vornado TouchStone Vortex HeatersI’ve encountered a few semi-intelligent heaters – but none as smart as the Vornado TVH600 TouchStone Vortex Heater.

What makes it the world’s smartest heater?

While other smart heaters may be able to sense the room temperature, their sensors are located on the heating unit itself; of course, the space surrounding the heater will be warmer than the rest of the room. The Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater takes this into account: its temperature sensor is located on the remote control for a truly intelligent reading!

DeLonghi Ceramic Heater Reviews

Posted by John on October 22nd, 2008

DeLonghi ceramic heaterIf you’re looking for a small, safe, reliable space heater that evenly heats a room, then you’ll love the ceramic space heaters from DeLonghi. These value-priced heaters oscillate from left to right and feature electronic control panels as well as tip-over and overheat protection.

How do ceramic heaters work?

Ceramic heaters contain ceramic plates and aluminum baffling. Electricity heats up the ceramic plates. The heat is then absorbed by the aluminum and blown into the room with a fan. Ceramic heaters are small and portable, and even though they heat up quickly, their plastic encasings remain cool to the touch. Read more about DeLonghi ceramic space heaters
