The brand new Dyson Hot + Cool AM05 Air Multiplier Heater Fan

Dyson Hot + Cool

The Dyson Hot + Cool AM05 air multiplier is the industry’s fastest whole room heater for those cold winter days, while also providing high velocity air to cool your space in the summer. This dual purpose heater fan manages your temperature control needs all year long in one stylish device. Imagine a heating fan than can produce and distribute long range heat to warm up your entire room. Now imagine that same fan dropping the room’s temperature down to a nice, cooled off space on those hot summer days. Add in the fact that it doesn’t use any fan blades and you’ve got yourself the recipe for the new Dyson Hot + Cool Air Multiplier fan heater. 

What is air multiplication? This patented process draws in the air surrounding the fan without the use of blades and amplifies that air, providing a smooth stream of temperature controlled air. It is a safe option for homes with children or pets due to the lack of fan blades in addition to invisible heating elements. Of course, no blades also means it is a breeze to clean; simply wipe clean with a towel. The AM05 Dyson Hot + Cool also includes anti-tipping technology which prevents the device from tipping over. Should the heater fan be knocked over it shuts off immediately so as not to cause injury. This heater fan is unlike other conventional mobile heating or cooling systems. It is proven that the Dyson Hot + Cool uses up to 30% less energy than other leading space heaters* and can save you up to 20% on your energy bills over heating your entire home rather than the spaces you are occupying. The Dyson AM05 also features a smart setting when using the heating feature; simply set the target room temperature degree and the heater will automatically shut off when the room reaches that temperature, further saving energy costs.

Miele versus a Generic Vacuum - Why Miele is Worth It

Miele S7 AutoEco Upright Vacuum
Customers often ask us why they should invest in a Miele vacuum cleaner over another (often cheaper) brand. It's tough for us to write this article because there truly are things that we love about many different vacuum brands, but there is something special about the Miele machines. There are many reasons why we highly suggest the Miele brand over the competition and we believe they are worth the investment. Because we repair vacuums in addition to retailing them, we also see the problems that come with cheaper, lesser made options. Miele vacuums truly are built to last 20 years, and we see fewer Miele vacuums come in with problems than any other vacuum brand. Many of the features found in this article refer to upright vacuums specifically, but a lot of the same could be said for canisters as well. 

When you look at the performance of a Miele compared to other generic vacuums the differences are far and wide. A Miele vacuum offers 150 CFM (amount of air moved in cubic feet per minute) compared to competitor vacuums which only offer 50 - 80 CFM. With Miele you are provided variable motor speeds spanning between 300-1200 watts versus a single speed motor in most other brands. Miele presents a large dust bag capacity of 1.5 gallons in contrast to other leading vacuums that offer a mere .3 -.6 gallon messy dust cup. When it comes to the vacuum motor, two is better than one, and with Miele you get a two motor system instead of single motor system found in most other vacuum units. Stability and carpet cleaning efficiency are also very important so Miele uprights offer an anti-tipping device and Chevron style brush roll pattern. These features surely put Miele ahead of competitors who only present standard hose placement and standard brush roll patterns. Seeing dirt and debris in dark corners with your upright is also important, so Miele vacuums give you an LED head lamp for maximum visibility, plus a micro sweep squeegee, not offered by competing manufacturers.

The convenience of this vac can be recognized through its state of the art features that offer convenience and comfort.

The LED headlight mounted on the front also allows you to see where you might have a missed a spot, or into darker spaces in tight spaces or under furniture.

Less power for draperies and delicate surfaces, more power for thick carpet pile. Because the guesswork has been eliminated, there is no need for you to adjust the power level yourself... now that’s smart technology working for you! This smart cleaning system also reduces your overall power consumption so less energy is wasted on tasks that require a more gentle suction.

Miele Leo Vacuum Canister Review - Guest Post

A friend of ours recently purchased the Miele Leo canister vacuum, so we asked her to jot down a few thoughts she had regarding this specific vacuum. Here is what she had to say:

The first thing I noticed about the Leo is the color and design. A fun mustard yellow, sleek and compact, with an ingenious lock on two sides for holding the nozzle upright while the canister is in either an upright or a mobile position. Independent castors allow the vacuum to move in any direction with little effort, a huge upgrade from our old vacuum that lumbered along and tore up every baseboard in the house. 

What I love most of all is how quiet it is. Yet it is as powerful as the jet-engine-sounding Kirby we used to have. You can actually carry on a conversation at normal speaking level while the vacuum is running. 

My partner and I have actually argued over who gets to vacuum. This has never happened before! I'm so, so happy with our choice of Miele. The Leo is a pleasure to use, in every way.
