Improve Home Comfort and Stretch Your Dollars

Honeywell Fans and Air Circulators Can Enable Consumers to Turn Down Their Thermostats and Still Keep Cozy

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - It sounds counterintuitive, but if consumers use a fan this winter, they can help to keep their households warm -- and perhaps save money at the same time. A fan is an affordable, low maintenance product that can improve a household's heating efficiency while creating a more comfortable home.

Using a fan or a whole room air circulator can help consumers improve heat distribution from central heating systems or improve the efficiency of pellet and wood stoves. Fans help by drawing the warm air that rises to the top of a room, where it settles, to the bottom, and circulating that warm air throughout the entire room. By circulating the warm air, this helps to heat the room faster and more efficiently. So consumers can turn down the thermostat and still maintain an optimum level of personal comfort this winter.

In fact, according to the Alliance to Save Energy organization, lowering your thermostat by just one degree can potentially save you up to 4 percent in heating costs.

Some whole room air circulators, like Honeywell Turbo Air Circulators, are up to 30 percent quieter than other air circulators. To learn more about the value of using fans or air circulators and the different kinds available, visit
