RINNAI Avenger 25 Plus Gas and Electric Heating Highlights

There is no way to sugar coat this – winter is here and if you want to stay warm, a portable gas heater might just be the thing to keep you toasty inside while it freezes over outside.

Today we’re looking at the Rinnai Avenger Plus. It even has a hot name! This model is available in two colours, in white or platinum silver, so you can choose either depending on your home decor. There’s also a choice between natural gas and bottle gas, so even if you don’t have a gas outlet in your home you can still take advantage of its great heating performance.

So lets have a look around the heater. At the front we have the louvre where the warm air comes out – now remember this is not like a radiator, you don’t need to be in front of it to get warm, the whole environment will steadily become more comfortable.

Here there’s the carry handles that you can use to easily move this to another room if you need to. Here’s the control panel that gives you all the information you need to make your family nice and warm.

Looking at the back here, there are three filters to make sure the air being sucked in is as clean as possible when it’s recirculated through the room via the front lourve. The thermistor here helps monitor the temperature and compares it to the ideal temperature that you’ve selected and continually adjusts performance and power use so it’s both effective and efficient.

Now you might have noticed this black little window here, this is the remote control that gives you a few basic controls from the comfort of your lounge – you can power or shut down the heater and adjust the temperature setting to suit your own level of comfort.

Now this heater is perfect for large, open areas, and here’s a fact that I only just found out but kind of makes sense – as a room is warmed, the walls and ceilings are also warmed, which makes you feel even warmer even though the temperature is around the same. This Rinnai can take advantage of this by selecting an economy function that prevents overheating a room and helps save energy.

You were perhaps wondering about the “plus” in the name – the plus is very important! To get an extra boost of heat on those really cold nights, you can activate the electric mode which turns on an electric element that superheats your space. Using the control panel you can choose how the electric element kicks in – if you’ve run out of gas for example, you can use it in just electric mode. But if you want to get your room heated up quicker to the desired temperature, you can use one of the gas electric modes.

Now the other thing I should mention is they’ve thought of the busy family as well. During weekdays you may only need the heater on at night, but for longer periods over the weekend when everyone is home longer. The Avenger Plus has dual programmable timers so you can have the weekday timer at say 6pm to 10pm, and the weekend timer at maybe 3pm to 7pm.

Once you’ve punched it in, the heater can be fully automatic and turn on and off every day of the week and weekend without further interruption. But you can always override the timer if you are at home for manual control.

Here’s another feature I really like, called the pre-heat mode. If you have a timer programmed in, the heater actually starts looking at the temperature of the room an hour before the heater is due to start, and makes sure the room is actually at the desired temperature at the programmed time. How cool – or hot! – is that?

Dyson V6 Handstick Floor Care Range

You can forget conventional cleaning – the new Dyson V6 range has been engineered with convenience in mind, no matter what kind of floors or surfaces you need to clean.

The Dyson V6 range is the most powerful yet lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner that’s been designed for up to 20 minutes of cleaning. This range is powered by the Dyson V6 digital motor that spins up to 100,000 times a minute. It features 15 radial cyclones across 2 tiers for increased airflow to capture fine dust.

Unlike other handhelds the V6 range can be used up top, in-between and down below. Dyson engineers used Archimedes’ simple, but brilliant lever principle to perfect the balance in hand. So it’s just as easy to clean cobwebs from ceiling corners, as it is to clean crumbs from the floor.

The slim aluminum wand also fits into tight spaces – like between kitchen cupboards and fridges. We know because we tried.  This wand can also be completely detached from the machine, turning it into a very portable handheld for compact spaces like the car.

Each model within the range has been designed to help you get the best cleaning result for your particular needs. The Silver V6 has a motorised cleaner head that removes dirt from carpets and fine dust from hard floors. The V6 animal comes with an additional mini motorized tool with stiff nylon bristles that remove pet hair ground in dirt from furniture, car seats and other tight spaces.

The V6 motorhead has a direct drive motorised cleaner head that has been invented specifically for carpet cleaning and is 75 percent more powerful that the standard brush bar for heavier cleaning jobs.

The V6 fluffy has a soft roller cleaner that’s been invented for hard floors. This cleaner head removes large debris and fine dust at the same time. The full coverage roller is made of soft woven nylon with rows of anti-static carbon fiber filaments for a brilliantly clean hard floor.

And the V6 Absolute comes with the direct drive motorhead, the fluffy soft roller cleaner and the mini motorised tool, for a complete vacuuming solution for the entire house.

As you can see, the new Dyson V6 range means you can forget about pulling out your full sized vacuum cleaner for every minor cleaning task.  Whether it’s carpet, hard floors, the car or furniture, there’s a Dyson V6 model perfect for you!

And for busy home cooks that go through a lot of cutlery, Samsung created the Flex Tray™ for the Water Wall dishwasher. Housed on the third rack, this flexible and transportable tray offers convenience for loading and unloading.

In fact, experience greater flexibility with the WaterWall dishwasher’s Half Load setting, which allows you to fill and clean just the top or bottom zone.

Samsung’s unique Water Wall Technology can help to end the pre-rinse ritual and scrubbing off of baked on food before washing. Only Samsung offers spray bar system that harnesses the power of high pressure water, gliding a deflector back and forth to deliver a curtain of water which covers the hard to reach places of the bottom rack, where some of the dirtiest dishes often rest.

LG WD12590D6 Front Load Washing Machine

If you’re part of a big family in your home, then chances are, you’ll have pretty big laundry loads. Whether it’s sports, business wear or night garments, there’s probably a big basket of clothes just waiting to be washed. LG’s front load washing machine might just be the answer to helping you get through your large, family-sized washing volumes.

This LG washing machine can handle a massive 10 kilos worth of dirty clothes and linen. This mean that wash frequency and the amount of time spent washing is reduced, freeing your day up to get on with the other things you need to do.

If you prefer to do your laundry at night time, then you will definitely appreciate LG’s Direct Drive. Instead of using belts and pulleys like on a standard washing machine, the Direct Drive actually fastens the drum directly to the motor. This system results in less noise, less vibration and increased durability – now that’s something you’d want in a domestic workhorse like a washing machine.

The Direct Drive provides a really wide range of washing movements, resulting in a more natural, almost handwash clean. There’s actually 6 different wash movements, which the washer will select based on the wash program you’ve chosen.

The unique six motion control technology rotates the drum at various speeds and directions for a great clean. The high speed processor controls the direct drive motor, allowing you to wash with 6 types of motion. Here are a couple of examples of how the different motions work on different types of fabric. The stepping function uses a powerful tone of walling water to remove dirt and stains on more heavy duty items such as jeans. Similar to washing by hand, the gentle motion of the swing function allows you to clean delicate clothing without the worry of them being damaged.

If an issue with the Smart Washer does occur, LG’s Smart Diagnosis feature will relay a 6 second sound to a call centre that you’ve contacted, who can then quickly identify what the problem might be. And the LG App available on Apple and Android devices will also provide feedback on the status of your washer or instant feedback.

That’s the LG 10 kilo direct drive washing machine. Less loads, more time for you.

If you have young children and like preparing your own fresh food, then the hygiene plus function is perfect for you, offering a hotter final rinse, perfect for removing most bacteria from your cooking utensils, chopping boards and baby bottles.

If you’ve had a big party or family get together, the intensivezone function transforms the entire bottom basket into a power cleaning zone, by increasing the water pressure in the bottom basket, saving you the chore of scrubbing heavily soiled pots and pans.

Beko CN151120 Bottom Mount Fridge Highlights

This is a 505 litre bottom mount fridge from Beko that has some great features that help you keep your fridge items organised and extend the life of your fruit and vegies.

So let’s start on the outside of the fridge. This is a pure white fridge with clean straight lines, and metal finish handles.

Now as you can see we have the fridge area on the top and the freezer area on the bottom. Now did you know that many fridges have one cooling system for both areas, which means they share the same air circulation? Not this Beko. The cooling system is actually independent for the fridge and freezer areas. This controls the humidity levels better and stops odours getting from one area to another. This means longer lasting fruit and vegies.

Because it’s french door there is a huge wide space that can be used for really wide platters and big pots – great for parties and family events. The glass shelving can accommodate different sized containers by adjusting the mechanism with a push or pull action.

The fridge area has active fresh blue light. Now it’s been a while since I was at school, but do you remember the word “photosynthesis” thrown around in science? Okay, so this blue light technology that Beko uses actually helps the fruit and vegetables, which have grown as a result of sunlight, continue to stay fresh and actually prolongs the life of your fruit and vegies.

In addition to the blue light, the Active Ioniser neutralises bacteria, viruses and particles that cause effluvia in the refrigerator, which creates an antibacterial effect. The circulated air inside the refrigerator is kept clean and as a result food can be stored for a longer period. The active odour filter circulates and filters cool air inside the refrigerator to help eliminate unwanted odours and bacteria to help keep food fresh.

That’s the Beko fridge, family sized, versatile and keeping your fresh food at its optimum for longer!
