SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners now have a new way to circulate stagnant indoor air while helping to eliminate odors. The new Honeywell with Febreze Freshness™ Cool & Refresh Fan combines two devices into one for home climate and aroma control. The fan provides both effective cooling and quiet operation, and uses Febreze® Set&Refresh® scent cartridges for whole room freshening.
"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. It's no wonder that Americans spend about $8 billion each year on home fragrances," said home expert and ABC's The Chew correspondent Evette Rios. "A recent national survey by Kaz Inc., the makers of Honeywell Fans, found that over two-thirds of Americans use fans and air fresheners to freshen the air in their home. The new Honeywell with Febreze Freshness fan gives the best of both worlds – continual odor elimination and air circulation."
Additional survey results include:
- 30% of American pet owners use a fan to keep pets cool
- 19% of women have used a fan to alleviate hot flashes
- 65% of Americans say that they get a better night's sleep with a fan, while 73% use one at night for white noise
- Fans are the number one device used to provide white noise while sleeping
