The Dyson Experience: An Interactive Training

Posted by Tony on October 7th, 2014

I was lucky enough to experience “Dyson at the Fox”, the company’s most interactive training yet. A few of us from Sylvane had the privilege to test drive several of their new and existing products. I learned a lot of cool stuff and found my new favorite product! Check out my photos from the training and see which products I was most impressed with below.

Allergic to the Cold?

Posted by Ivey on February 20th, 2014

Ice CubesAs a native southerner, I often say I’m allergic to the cold. Until recently, I had no idea this was not only an actual condition, but one with life-threatening consequences. After learning about Cara Yacino’s journey to a cold urticaria diagnosis and the precautions she takes to control her risk of an allergic reaction, I’ll think twice before carelessly claiming a cold allergy.

According to the Weather Channel’s video that chronicles her allergy (below), Yacino began experiencing hives that she originally thought were due to a food allergy. The initial outbreak occurred while she was drinking a cold coffee drink. However, the hives manifested once more when Yacino put her hand in a cold shark and ray petting tank.

How Space Heaters Helped Us Get Through Freezing Temps

Posted by Tony on January 8th, 2014

thermostatRegardless of where you are in the country, you’re probably pretty cold at this point. Very few of us here in Atlanta were prepared for the 6 degree temperature we woke up to earlier this week. On top of that, the central heat in our office is having major issues, leaving us less than toasty at our desks. Luckily, we have a warehouse full of heaters onsite.

We scattered a few space heaters around the coldest parts of the office, and good news: They really helped! Check out how we used different heaters and my suggestions based on our experience. You may want to consider getting one—as we learned, you never know when a crazy cold front (or the Polar Vortex) will wreak havoc on your day.

For Offices or Small Conference Rooms

Our offices and conference rooms got the coldest—being cut off from the rest of the office space and full of windows, they were pretty frigid. We used the Vornado TVH600Vornado Touchstone Vortex Heater in a small conference room and a few offices. This one impressed me a lot because its fan really pushed warm air around the space. Capable of heating rooms up to 16 X 16 feet, it also comes with tons of cool features. A thermostatic remote control actually senses the temperature around it to ensure an even room temperature is maintained. You can also set your exact room temperature with this one (while a lot of space heaters only let you pick a low or high heat setting). The Vortex TVH-600 also has a programmable timer, an LCD screen, and various safety features.
