Stay Warm for Less with Honeywell Portable Heaters {Honeywell EnergySmart 360 Surround Heater Giveaway}

Honeywell logo
Although for a while there it seemed like we were going to be able to slide by without too frigid of a winter, chilly temperatures and icy winds have blanketed the country and caused a lot of us to reach to turn up our thermostats.

I don't know about where you are, but here in the Midwest there's no mistaking that winter has fully arrived.

cold temperatures

I'd like to say that I'm one of those people that loves the cold weather or finds beauty in the snow or likes to see the glisten of the ice... but I'm not. It's cold. Cold, cold, cold.

So, being far from someone who wants to live in an igloo, I have designated myself in charge of the thermostat in our house and am fortunate that my agreeable husband hasn't ever complained. What about in your house? Who prefers warmer temperatures? How do you keep warm when your spouse won't turn up the thermostat?

These questions will be asked across the nation this winter and a few answers and fun facts on portable heaters and how the sexes are bound to battle can be seen below!

Click on the infographic itself for a larger size.

If you're like me, you browse that infographic and think that it's definitely time to get a portable heater! Why spend extra money heating up the entire house if it is really only one room that needs to stay warm?

Fortunately, Honeywell, the name that we all turn to for products designed to create optimum home comfort, has a large selection of portable heaters that allow you to stay cozy while keeping your wallet happy as well.

Portable heaters can supplement your central heating, keep drafty basements or workshops warm and create a personal level of comfort in whatever room you're in. By lowering the temperature in a house by a number of degrees, you can save up to hundreds in heating costs per year!

To see how the numbers add up for yourself, visit the Honeywell Heater Savings Calculator (also available on Facebook) to compare the cost of heating your home as you normally do versus the savings generated by lowering your thermostat and using a portable heater to heat the room you are in.

Also, thanks to the generosity of Honeywell, one person will soon be saving money without sacrificing comfort for all of the upcoming cold months, because...

One lucky person will win a Honeywell EnergySmart 360 Surround Heater (ARV $59.99)!

Amy said...

I don't like to turn on the central heater as it dried up my skin pretty badly. So, I just make sure to put on an extra layer of clothing. This convenience heat would help as I can have it in certain area instead of heating the whole house.

We bought a new house a couple years ago, and it came with the usual oil furnace, and an alternative coal stove. I grew up using wood heat, so both were new to me. Winter#1 we used oil only. By Winter#2, I had done enough research, and attempted to use the stove. It took awhile, but now we'll never go back to oil ...except to assist the stove when it gets down to -10 degrees or colder!
