Honeywell is a USA based multinational company and this company is devoted to producing quality commercial and consumer products. This company has a good reputation for manufacturing products with the thermostat which is a recognizing trademark of most of the Honeywell products.

As we expected Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan also comes with a thermostat that helps you to detect the room temperature and set the fan speed to your preferred comfort level.

The breeze mode, however, is the main highlighting feature of this Honeywell tower fan. Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan is a 40.5-inch tower fan. It is very beautifully designed and has smooth edges.

The product has been colored black with a silver lining around the baffles. There is a beautifully designed panel at the top that is very user-friendly. A remote controller is provided with the fan for those days you just don’t have the energy to get to it.

Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan looks attractive, and there is a new breeze mode added to make this tower fan what it is.

KEY Features of Honeywell HYF048 Fresh Breeze Tower Fan

1. Remote Control

The Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan has a remote control and it also contains a flashlight. This tiny remote has five buttons and they are 1. Oscillation/Ionization 2. Up 3. Power/Fan Speed 4. Down 5. Breeze. With this remote control, you can control the speed of the fan, turn on/off the fan and turn on/off the oscillation and air ionization system of the tower fan. I don’t like the shape of the remote control. Looks very ugly and cheaply made. Other than that, the remote control works perfectly. It requires only 2 AAA size batteries.

2. Temperature Setting

As we said earlier, the thermostat is the trademark feature of the Honeywell household appliance. They do add thermostats even in their lower price fans. In this Honeywell tower fan, you can set the desired room temperature between 60°F-90°F. Only you have to press the mode button in the control panel once to activate the temperature setting. The default temperature of this thermostat is 74°F. The scheduled temperature will show on the digital display of the tower fan. Press up or down arrow button to increase or decrease the temperature.

When room temperature exceeds the temperature that is set by you, the fan will automatically turn on. Thus, you don’t need to think about it. I can’t even explain how nice this is, super convenient and if you are like me and have a comfort zone you really never have to touch this fan.

3. Pre- Programmable Timer

It is the must-have feature of the top-rated tower fan. Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan comes with 12 hour timer. If you push the mode button of the control panel twice, it will automatically disengage the temperature setting and activate the timer.

You can preset programmable timer between 1-12 hours with 1 hour of increment. You can increment or decrement the time using up or down arrow bottom.

The LCD screen of the tower fan will display the preset time below a clock icon. You can use both temperature and timer settings simultaneously by pressing the mode bottom three times.

When the operation time of the tower fan exceeds the preprogrammed time, the fan will automatically turn OFF. This feature saves your electricity bill and unusual power consumption due to forgetting to turn it off.

3. Air Ionizer

The air ionizer feature will keep the air fresh by purifying the air particle around the tower fan. The ionizer creates negative ions. These negative ions attract the dust, pollution particles, and large air particle toward ionizer. The filter system in the air ionizer catches the unwanted air particles. Thus, it is capable of cleaning and purifying the air around the fan. When you press the Oscillation/Ionization bottom twice it will activate the air ionization system of the tower fan. The good news is the air filter is removable and washable. So you can clean it or change it when it becomes dirty and the filter is very easy to clean.

4. Oscillation

This Honeywell tower fan model can oscillate 90 degrees in horizontal direction. To turn on the oscillation of the tower fan you have to push the Oscillation/Ionization key on the remote controller the control panel located on the top of tower fan.

5. Breeze Mode

It is one of the most exclusive and unique features of Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower Fan. Breeze mode of this fan with change the speed automatically and give you a feeling of natural air flow. This is another one of those underrated perks that Honeywell add into the Fresh Breeze Tower Fan and its one of those thing that you have to experience to truly appreciate fully.

6. Multiple Speed Setting

This tower fan has only three-speed setting (High, Medium and Low). Less than Dyson AMO7 air Multiplier Fan and Vornado 184 Air Circulator this has 10 and 8-speed setting respectively. The 3 speed settings is what we at consider to be the minimum and frankly the standard for most speed optional fans. Not a problem, but not anything special here.
