Stretch Your Dollars Without Sacrificing Comfort

With Honeywell Fans and Air Circulators, Consumers Can Help Heat Their Homes More Efficiently

SOUTHBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - It sounds counterintuitive, but if consumers use a fan this fall and winter, they can help save money while heating their homes. A fan is an affordable product that can actually help improve a household's heating efficiency. 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 air throughout the entire room. Circulating the warm air helps to heat the room faster and more efficiently. So consumers can potentially turn down their thermostats and still maintain an optimum level of personal comfort indoors, despite the colder weather. According to the Alliance to Save Energy organization, lowering your thermostat by just one degree in the winter can potentially save you up to 5 percent in heating costs. 

Some whole room air circulators, like Honeywell TurboForce® whole room air circulators, are up to 30 percent quieter than other air circulators. They feature a pivoting fan head that can tilt up to a 90 degree angle. When operated in the tilted position, it creates an air vortex for maximum air circulation throughout an entire room. And some of the newest fans, like the Honeywell QuietSet™ fans, are among the quietest fans available. In fact, at the lowest settings, the sound from a Honeywell QuietSet™ fan is virtually undetectable. Soothing sound options, like "whisper" and "white noise" settings, are also available. To learn more about the value of using fans or air circulators and the different Honeywell products that are available, visit
