New Products from Honeywell

Do you know what lurks in the air - specifically the air in your home? At a recent event hosted by Honeywell, I learned that the air in our home is actually dirtier than the air outside. As gross as this sounds, there are also steps we can take to get rid of germs by using humidifiers, air purifiers, heaters and fans. In addition to checking out the latest product offerings from Honeywell, I also had the chance to learn some tips from Evette Rios of The Chew on how to fight dust, get more sleep and keep your air clean. She also highlighted the best products from Honeywell that can clean up the germs, allergens and dust in your air.

Home Tips from Home Expert Evette Rios

Air Purifiers
Catching Zzzz's--Not Other Things!
Are you afraid of what your air has floating in it during cold and flu season? The new AirGenius 5 has five operation settings to make life easier, including Sleep, Germs, and Allergen. Plus, it features a patented washable honeycomb style filter that does not resist airflow like paper filters do, allowing for extremely quiet operation.

Winning the Dust Fight
Even if you keep a clean house, dust has a way of finding its way into the home and can start collecting as soon as you wipe your furniture, floors or countertops clean. Help reduce airborne dust particles with an air purifier. All Honeywell air purifiers are proven effective at capturing up to 95% or more of the dust that passes through their filters.

When to Go with the (Air) Flow
What most don't realize is that the EPA states that indoor air can be 5 to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. When the weather permits and pollen counts are low, open up the windows and doors in your home to let fresh air in and allow it to circulate in the room. On days when pollen is high, try the Honeywell AirGenius 5, which helps diminish odors and even helps reduce VOCs, airborne allergens, and airborne germs, which is key for families that spend a lot of time indoors.

Improving the Ahh Factor in Your Home
If you live in an apartment building, air ducts between apartments can be carrying unfiltered air from your neighbor straight to you. From cooking smells to viruses to pet dander, you name it, just imagine what could be passing through to your dwelling. Use an air purifier to help capture microscopic airborne allergens and help reduce odors in the air.

Fans
What Your Fragrance Says about You
When you walk into a home, one of the first things that hits you is the smell, which can be a deal breaker if it's a housewarming party or open house. Circulate stagnant indoor air while helping to eliminate odors with the new Honeywell with Febreze Freshness' Cool & Refresh Fan which combines two devices into one for home climate and aroma control.

Living to Scale in the City
Whole-house fans help cool your home by pulling cool air through the house and venting warm air through the attic. For apartment dwellers, a smaller scale but equally powerful fan for ventilation is the Honeywell TurboForce® Floor Fan. It hits distances as far as 40 feet away and is 25% quieter than similar models.

Beat the Summer Heat
In the summer, you can reduce the amount of energy you consume by using a fan with your air conditioner. The fan will improve air movement through the room so you don't have to turn up the A/C as high. By using less energy to cool the same space, you could save as much as 20% off your energy bill. During the day, consider closing your windows and draw the curtains closed to keep out solar energy.

Humidifiers
Hydrate Your Home, Not Just Your Plants
Don't forget homes need water too, that?s where humidifiers help. Because low humidity causes wood to lose moisture and shrink, the Honeywell Easy-to-Care Humidifier is the perfect solution during the dry winter months to help protect valuable wood furniture. Extreme changes in humidity can cause warping and cracking.

Finding Your Green Thumb
Using a humidifier is a great way to keep plants healthier because it helps return moisture to the air which promotes plant growth. With the new Honeywell Easy-to-Care Cool Mist Humidifier, the patented Easy-to-Fill technology even makes filling as easy as watering a plant. The funnel-shaped top opening allows it to be easily filled from above using a pitcher or water can, and eliminates trips back and forth to the sink with a heavy, cumbersome tank.

Reading the Writing on the Wall
The moisture humidifiers add to dry air helps alleviate common nuisances brought on by winter heating, such as static electricity, helps to keep plants healthier and helps to protect furniture. For germ-free humidification, Honeywell makes a model with a patented UV chamber that kills up to eliminates 99.9% of mold, bacteria, fungus and virus in the water.
