SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As temperatures dip this
fall, consumers looking to save on energy bills won't have to make a choice
between cutting-edge design and whole room, energy-efficient heating. Turn
down central heating and warm only the rooms you spend the most time in this
season with the new line of Honeywell Infrared Heaters. With a beautiful,
modern design that fits any home environment, these new portable heaters
utilize infrared heating technology to provide a heat output of 5,200 BTUs
without burning oxygen or humidity, which can cause rooms to feel dry. Long
lasting, premium quartz heating elements begin working instantly, providing a
soft glow and warmth that users can immediately see and feel.

A recent survey of Americans conducted by the makers of Honeywell heaters
found that the top two reasons portable heaters are used are (1) to save
money, and (2) to save energy.[1] The new Honeywell EnergySmart® Infrared
thermostat regulates the heater's power consumption and can help save up to
35% on heating bills versus conventional heaters.

For those who also have concerns over comfort—like the 25 percent of survey
respondents who admitted to arguing with their partner over temperature in the
home—the new MYEnergySmart™ Infrared Heater model offers programmable digital
controls designed to accommodate the temperature preferences of multiple
users. Personalized MYTemp settings can be saved as favorites so each person's
desired heating level is always remembered to provide increased comfort and
energy efficiency.

All models in the new line of Honeywell Infrared Heaters also include unique
top located controls for easy programming and safety features like cool-touch
housings, overheat protection and a four-way tip-over switch that shuts off
the heater if tipped over in any direction.
