, 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
® 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
each year on home fragrances," said home expert and ABC's
. "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
The Honeywell with Febreze Freshness Cool & Refresh Fan offers scent control with variable settings that allow consumers to adjust scent level to their odor elimination and freshening needs. The fan comes with an Advanced Odor Eliminator scent cartridge that offers two times the odor eliminating ingredients compared to the base formula used in other Febreze Set&Refresh scents. A single scent cartridge can last up to 30 days depending on fan speed used. The fan can also be used with any of the Febreze Set&Refresh scent cartridges available in the scent aisle.
