I don’t like to air my dirty laundry much but there is one consistent thing in my house that my husband and I argue about…TEMPERATURE! In an effort to save money my husband is constantly turning down the heat and bringing back sayings from my childhood like “put a sweatshirt on” and I follow up with “I HAVE a sweatshirt on” I really think I am married my mother when it comes to the heat in the house.
When Dyson mentioned me trying out their new AM05: The Dyson Hot + Cool™ bladeless heater fan I jumped at the opportunity. I knew my husband would love that is could help heat up the family room while still cutting down on our overall heating bill. My husband loved that the Dyson AMO5 Bladeless heater fan meant that we wouldn’t have to turn the heat all the way up. I loved that I could potentially a) be warmer b) stop an ongoing argument with my husband and c) not worry about my kids near the device!
Since the fan is bladeless I don’t have to worry about my kids or dog near the fan. You can stick your hand right through the The Dyson AM05 and nothing will happen. You also don’t have to worry about getting burnt it you touch The Dyson AM05 while it’s being used as a heater because it is not burning hot like a space heater.
Since The Dyson AMO5 arrived we have used it daily in our family room. It truly takes the chill out of the room. I also like how it doesn’t leave the air in the room dry like the central heating does. The Dyson AMO5 is very lightweight to move around and easy to clean. It’s sleek design makes it unobtrusive into the esthetics of your room and it isn’t bulky like the old fans. It’s been the perfect addition for the crisp mornings and cold evenings of the early fall.
A bit about the The Dyson AM05 Hot + Cool™ bladeless heater fan:
AM05 is Dyson’s new bladeless fan heater, providing the fastest whole room heating in winter, and high velocity cooling air in the summer.
How it works:
Using Air Multiplier™ technology and a motor engineered for greater airflow, AM05 draws in six gallons of air per second via a mixed flow impeller. Air friction is reduced using nine asymmetrically aligned fins, with rows of tiny holes. This helps maintains constant smooth airflow.
In heater mode, two Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) ceramic plates heat the air as it’s projected into the room. The air is then accelerated through a tiny aperture set within the loop amplifier. This creates a jet of air which passes over an airfoil-shaped ramp angled at 5˚. Creating an area of low pressure behind the fan, air is drawn in through a process known as inducement. Surrounding air is drawn into the airflow in a process called entrainment.
How it was developed:
45 Dyson engineers developed Dyson Hot + Cool™. The team performed acoustics testing, electromagnetic compatibility testing, airflow modelling and simulated life testing for the equivalent of 10 years. Air fluctuations were mapped with Laser Doppler Anemometry, enabling engineers to make iterative changes to achieve the optimal angle of the airfoil-shaped ramp.
James Dyson: “It’s frustrating when temperatures fluctuate in a room – you’re warm one minute, shivering the next. So, we created a machine that heats and cools effectively. We increased the output of the brushless motor by 33%, improving cooling performance, whilst maintaining fast even room heating.”
Safety: Low surface temperatures throughout and no visible heating elements. And if tipped over, the machine has been engineered to automatically shut off. (I love this fact)
Remote Control: Turning the AM05 on and off, adjusting temperature, airflow rate and controlling oscillation can be done easily from across a room. The remote control is curved and magnetized to store neatly on top of the machine.
