Announcing our New Eco-Friendly Cooling Products!

Lume Comfort official logoIf you haven’t already seen it, yesterday we officially announced the launch of our new line of eco-friendly cooling products! This new line of evaporative coolers and misting fans utilize the natural power of evaporation to provide cooling. this process doesn’t require any refrigerants or compressors, and use minimal amounts of electricity.

Our official announcement release goes into the evaporative cooling process in a bit more detail:

An example of the evaporation process can be likened to the cooling sensation one feels when stepping out of a pool or shower. Once water evaporates from the body, it also takes heat with it. Luma Comfort’s evaporative coolers and misting fans work similarly by drawing in hot air and producing a cooling effect using either water-saturated cooling pads (evaporative coolers) or a super fine mist (misting fans).

But what does that mean for you? With this new line of evaporative coolers and misting fans, you can lower the surround temperature by as much as 30 degrees, with next to no impact on the environment or your electric bill!

If you couldn’t tell, we’re very excited about this announcement and being finally able to share this news with everyone. A lot of hard work has gone in to the development of these units, and we’re sure that you’re going to just love them. We’ve also done our best to ensure that everyone can benefit from these new cooling products by developing a range of different sizes and styles. And the best part is that this is just the beginning, as our research and development team is already hard at work on our next line of products. In the meantime, look for the new Luma Comfort evaporative coolers and misting fans at a retailer near you very soon!

US Economy Gaining Steam in 2012

There’s been a lot of good news regarding the US economy lately! The latest Consumer Confidence Index shows a nice increase for February – from 61.5 to 70.8. Additionally, the National Retail Federation reported an increase in retail sales for January of nearly 1% from December, and 4% year over year. And if that’s not enough to put a smile on your face, both new and existing home sales rose in the month of January as well.

While the effects of the latest economic slide are still being felt across the country, these most recent figures further the notion of optimism in many circles. The upward trends of these reports, combined with the recently reported decrease in unemployment should provide at least some hope and optimism that the US is rebounding from a difficult couple of years. We don’t pretend to be economists, but it certainly makes sense that these are the types of numbers that can lead to a snowball effect. As consumer confidence continues to grow, spending will naturally increase. With an increase in spending comes more profits, more jobs and thus, even more spending. And in our little corner of the world, the timing couldn’t be better.
