Summer in Australia can be an absolute scorcher, frequently reaching well over 40°C. Keeping cool is a constant struggle and for some running an air conditioner non-stop for months is not an option. We all know it is an energy sucker that costs a fortune, especially with rising electricity costs. In my home I am lucky enough to have ceiling fans but I know many don’t and rely on pedestal fans that frequently need replacing. I’m not saying ceiling fans eliminate all heat created but it does help. Unfortunately there are 2 places in my home that require that extra burst of cool air and they are my office and the kitchen.
Dyson Cool Review
Both these spaces have only minimal room that can occupied by a cooling device and the pedestal fan just doesn’t cut it. The Dyson Cool however fits the requirements perfectly! In my office I am limited to a 15cm section on a shelf for my fan and while that doesn’t seem like a lot, it is more than enough for my new Dyson. Tilting easily and pivoting on its own centre of gravity means I can set it my specific needs. It provides me with not only smooth, high-velocity airflow but it is also extremely quiet and doesn’t distract me when I’m trying to work. If only I could occasionally put my kids on Dyson function and make them 75% quieter! A mother can dream.
As I am a busy mum there are a few features that are must haves when making purchases for my home. Safety, easy to clean & simple to use. With my youngest being 18 months old she like to explore, touch and put everything to the test so safety is obviously the major factor. The Dyson Cool AM06 (like all Dyson fans) have no blades spinning fast. You can put your hand through the centre and know your child will not be injured by the bladeless fan. Safe = YES.
As I mentioned above, I also use my Dyson desk fan in the kitchen. It sits perfectly on the bench and keeps me cool while I’m
slaving baking away. Due to the mess that is often created in the kitchen with grease, spatters and general dirtiness I needed my fan to be easy to keep clean. Again the Dyson Cool has ticked that box. Simply wipe it down and it looks like new! Easy to clean = YES.
As I’m often on the run doing a million things at once, the older two kids (aged 7 and 5) will often be delegated jobs to help me achieve everything I need to get done. They are often asked to turn the fan on for me and can do this ease. It is one of their favourite things at the moment. The novelty of putting their hands (and heads) through the middle hasn’t quite worn off yet but than it hasn’t for Mr C either so who can blame the kids. The tiny remote makes it so simple to use. There are 4 buttons – Off/On, Swing (Oscillation) Off/On, Speed Up/Down and a timer. Yes that’s right, you can set the timer so you don’t have to get up and turn it off if you are using it in the nursery or childs’ room for example. Simple to use = YES.
