New Online Resource Educates Consumers About Keeping Their Home Environment Comfortable While Conserving Energy and Saving Money

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - Increasingly, many Americans are interested in purchasing products that help them save money while saving energy. In fact, the U.S. government recently earmarked $300 million in federal stimulus money for rebate programs for consumers who buy appliances rated for energy efficiency. But many consumers may not realize they don't have to sacrifice whole home comfort to make smart, economical choices about the air purifiers, heaters and air circulators they purchase.

To educate consumers, Kaz, makers of home comfort products under the Honeywell brand, today launched a new online resource, www.shrinkenergybills.com, that offers a wealth of information about how portable air purifiers, heaters and air circulators can help consumers save money and energy. For instance, did you know:

--  According to the Alliance to Save Energy, for every degree a consumer
    turns down their thermostat, they can save 4% on heating bills. If every
    household in the U.S. turned their thermostat down just two degrees, the
    country would save a combined total of more than $11 billion in heating
    costs annually. Turning down your central heating system and turning on
    your portable heater in just the rooms you spend the most time in is a
    smart energy saving tip and provides the comfort you want. To learn more
    about today's safe, efficient portable heaters, visit
    www.honeywellheatsavings.com.
    
--  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says indoor air can be up to
    100 times more polluted than outdoor air. One element in improving poor
    indoor air quality can be air purifier. Affordable, high efficiency air
    purifiers, such as Honeywell portable air purifiers, are up to 95 to 99.97
    percent effective at capturing harmful indoor air pollutants that passes
    thru the unit. Some are even Energy Star-rated and can be operated for the
    same cost as a 40 watt light bulb. To learn more about the importance of
    cleaner indoor air and helping to provide your family with fresher indoor
    air, visit www.honeywellcleanair.com.
    
--  The EPA also says that heating and cooling make up 49% of the average
    energy bill. Yet air circulation -- like wind energy made for the home --
    can be a powerful and money-saving force. By marrying an affordable
    Honeywell air circulator or fan and decreasing the usage of their central
    heating and cooling system, consumers can potentially save hundreds of
    dollars off energy costs, and maintain a comfortable environment. To learn
    more about the value of adding a fan to the household heating or cooling
    system, visit www.honeywellfansavings.com.
