New Comfort ES-1500 Infrared Heater

 

In this video, Dustin talks about the importance of an Energy Star thermostat. This allows you to program when to heat and at what temperature! If you’re at work all day and no one is home you don’t need to heat your living space to a comfortable temperature. Instead, you can keep it a bit above freezing and then program it to get it up to the ideal temperature by time you get home!

 

 

It’s no secret that an infrared heater is the most efficient electric heater out there. The best combination? An energy efficient infrared heater WITH an Energy Star style thermostat!

 

One such heater is the New Comfort ES-1500! The ES stands for “Energy Saver” and, at the time of the video, it is the only infrared heater with an Energy Star thermostat.

 

The Energy Star thermostat on the ES-1500 has two main features. One is that you can set the temperature you want the room to be, press Hold, and it will maintain that temperature.

 

The other feature is that you can program the time of day you want it to heat to certain temperatures! Are you looking for energy efficient heating? This is the heater for you!

New Comfort Ozone HMA-700/O3 Air Purifier

In this video, Dustin goes over the exciting New comfort HMA-700, which is a commercial ozone air purifier.

 

Ozone air purifiers are designed to destroy odors and clean the air. This commercial air purifier is used by businesses like restaurants, bars, beauty parlors, or even construction sites.

 

It is designed to be used in unoccupied spaces and has a convenient 60-minute timer. When you go to leave for the day you can simply set the length of time you want it to run and then walk away. It also has a powerful UV bulb that cleans the air as it passes through. UV is known to kill things like mold spores and viruses that could be floating around.

 

It comes with three ozone plates that are removable and washable. They should be washed about every 30 days of use with hot water. Simply allow them to dry and you can put them back in! The reason it has three of these ozone plates is so you can customize the amount of ozone you would like to produce.

 

On top of these great features it’s very well built and has a three-year factory warranty!

If you watch the news, chances are you’ve heard of houses catching on fire due to unsafe electric heaters. Dustin is standing next to the New Comfort ES 1500, which is one of the safe ones. It uses infrared heat that doesn’t get hot enough to burn and it also has several safety features.

 

So what should you look for in an energy efficient electric heater? Well, there are two main things! The first is this certificate (it’s the one that says ETL.) If it says UL that is sufficient as well. If it has one of those two you know the heater was tested independently by a safety company that used rigorous testing methods.

 

The second thing you should look for is the emergency shut off switch. Why would this be important? Let’s say that something happens overnight to your electricity and the heater shorts out! It happens and has happened to our customers. Heaters with this safety switch will automatically shut off and could prevent a fire or near-fire situation. If a heater doesn't have both of these things then don't buy it!

Can You Use a Rainbow Vacuum as an Air Purifier?

 

Here we have three vacuums that represent just about all the different models of Rainbow vacuum out there. The SE on the left is similar to the D3 and D4. All three have 1 stage filtration – air comes in and is filtered through water. The E-series, in the middle, has added HEPA filtration for a total of two stages of filtration.  The 2-speed, on the right, is the same.

 

So, can you use these as air purifiers? The short answer is yes! Different models will have different efficiency, though. You will also need to take into consideration the sound the vacuum makes as it runs. Is it something you would really want to hear running for hours on end?

 

After listening to the sounds of the SE and E-series run you will notice how amazingly quiet the E2 2-speed is when you run it on air purifier mode! It’s a lot quieter, but doesn’t move as much air.

 

Should You Use a Rainbow Vacuum as an Air Purifier?

 

Okay, now that you know you CAN use your Rainbow vacuum as an air purifier you can ask the question “Should I?” What it boils down to is that a Rainbow is a $2000 vacuum cleaner. Why would you use a $2000 appliance to purify air when you can buy a dedicated air purifier that works way better for under $200?  There’s really no point in putting all of those hours of run time on a high-end appliance!

 

The price difference between the E-series 2-speed and a regular E2 (without the air purifier speed) is enough that you could buy yourself a good air purifier and have money left over.

 

Here Dustin has a couple air purifiers that we sell at GreatVacs.com. They have up to 6 stages of filtration while the Rainbow vacuum only has 2. They also have a better fan and will do a better job of purifying your air. If you turn them on you’ll notice that they’re VERY quiet. Quieter than the Rainbow on air purifier mode, in fact! They will purify areas of up to 3,000 square feet! They have washable HEPA filters, they have ionization to help pull dust from the air, and they can remove odors.

 

To recap: Can you use a Rainbow vacuum to purify air? Yes. Should you? Probably not.
