Portrait of Tammy Strobel

Do you notice a strange smell when you turn on the air conditioner? Does it take longer for it to cool the room? Is there dust build-up in the wind outlet? If you’ve detected these factors, it might be time to service your air-conditioning unit. This not only rids the unit of mould and bacteria, but can also help to keep electricity bills down!

Stay cool in the heat with Efenz’s Kith Collection, a line of super silent and eco-friendly fans. With specially designed ECM DC 155 motors, the fans are able to generate strong airfl ow. Inspired by the wings of an aeroplane, the unique three-piece curved blade design not only looks good, but also allows the fans to withstand stress caused by spinning at high speeds. Best of all, they are made of an anti-rust material, which means fussfree maintenance and less dust accumulation. Choose from five snazzy colours: White, Black, Natural Pine, Maple Wood, and Midnight Titanium (pictured).

The Efenz Kith Collection is available at authorised retailers from $698. Visit www.efenz.com.sg for more information.
