Enjoy Winter and a Comfortable Home With Today's Newest Honeywell Humidifiers

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) - Winter has its bonuses; white snow, ice skating and cool weather. But not everything about winter is pleasant -- itchy, flaky skin, colds/flus and general dry air. It's no wonder why so many consumers own a humidifier. Sustaining proper humidity should be part of the solution to battling the winter "icks." Maintaining an indoor humidity level between 40-60% can reduce the survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air*. Comfortable humidity helps temporarily relieve congestion and cough as well as temporary relief from dry air discomforts. A humidifier is a great way to raise indoor humidity levels and keep indoor air moist for more comfortable living.

This season, there are three exciting Honeywell humidifiers on the market that are sure to get consumers' attention -- Honeywell Easy to Care Ultrasonic Humidifier (HUT-200), Honeywell Easy to Care Cool Moisture Humidifier (HCM-750) and Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier with Germ Free Humidification (HCM-350).

The "Easy" Humidifier: Easy to Care, Easy to Fill, Easy to Clean
There are two new Honeywell Cool Moisture Humidifiers on the market this season that make cleaning, filling and caring for easy.

The Honeywell Easy to Care Ultrasonic Humidifier (HUT-200) is a sleek and innovative addition to the line of Honeywell humidifiers that focuses on easy filling, cleaning and use -- three items that are top of mind with consumers. The product's top fill design makes it as easy to fill as watering a plant, and its dishwasher safe components and easy wipe surfaces make it easy to clean by eliminating any tough-to-reach places. In addition, the humidifier's design is compact and space saving -- ideal for any bedroom and/or medium-size living area. Its illuminated water window also lets you know when you need to refill the tank. In addition, the humidifier silently provides a cool visible mist and a soothing water flow visual. The Honeywell Easy to Care Ultrasonic Humidifier has a suggested retail price of $49.99-59.99 and is available at Target, Walmart, Meijer and Ace Hardware. 

The Honeywell Easy to Care Cool Mist Humidifier (HCM-750) is one of the easiest to use on the market. The humidifier's recessed grille on the top allows it to be filled from above -- just by using a pitcher or watering can -- eliminating the trips to and from room to sink and the cumbersome flipping/filling of the tank. It is a great size for large bedrooms and living areas. This Honeywell humidifier comes equipped with three moisture output settings and an illuminated window, and flowing water visual to let you know when the tank needs to be refilled. Virtually all the removable parts are dishwasher safe and the main housing has easy wipe surfaces making it easy to clean and the unit comes with Protec Antimicrobial treated filters to help extend the life of the filter. The Honeywell Easy to Care Cool Mist Humidifier has a suggested retail price of $54.99 to $59.99 and is available at Target, Walmart, Meijer and Ace Hardware.

Break-Proof Tank and Germ Free Humidification
The Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier with Germ Free Humidification (HCM-350) comes equipped with QuietCare™ technology, which delivers fresh, cool moisture up to 25% quieter than other evaporative humidifiers and offers consumers, for the first time, a break-proof tank. The humidifier is also designed to kill up to 99.9% of bacteria, mold, fungus and virus that can exist in the tap water you use to fill the unit. Its UV germ killing technology allows water to be treated as it passes through the water tray, reducing up to 99.9% of water-bred germs in the moisture output after 2 hours of continuous use. The Honeywell humidifier also offers a self regulating evaporative system that maintains optimal room humidity levels, three moisture output settings and a dishwasher safe water tank and water tray. The Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier with Germ Free Humidification has a suggested retail price of $59.99-69.99 and is available at Target, Best Buy, Meijer and Amazon.

In addition, all Honeywell humidifiers come with a three-year limited warranty.

*Studies have shown that keeping indoor air at an RH level of 40-60% reduces survival of flu viruses on surfaces and in the air compared to lower RH levels. When used as directed, humidifiers can achieve and maintain 40-60% RH levels.
