              KEY Features of Honeywell HY-048BP

              Remote control

              The Honeywell HY-048BP has a remote control and it also contains a flashlight. It contains five bottoms 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.  it looks very ugly and cheap. Other than that, the remote control works perfectly. It requires only 2 AAA size batteries.

              Temperature Setting

              As we said earlier thermostat, is the trademark feature of Honeywell household appliance. They do the same with this low-cost tower fan. You can select the desired room temperature between 60 degrees Fahrenheit and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

              Only you have to press the mode bottom in the control panel once to activate the temperature setting. The default temperature is 74 degrees Fahrenheit. It will show in the digital display of the tower fan. Press up or down arrow bottom to increment or decrement the temperature.

              When room temperature exceeds the preset temperature, the fan will automatically turn on. Thus, you don’t need to control always.

              Pre- programmable Timer

              This is the best feature of top rated tower fan. Honeywell Hy-048BP comes with 12 hours timer. If you push the mode bottom of the control panel twice, it will automatically disengage the temperature setting and activate the timer.

              Honeywell Fresh Breeze Tower FanYou can preset timer between 1-12 hours in 1 hour of increment and you can increment or decrement the time using the 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 setting by pressing the mode bottom three times simultaneously.

              When the operation time of the tower fan exceeds the preprogrammed time, the fan will automatically turn OFF. This feature saves you electricity bill and unusual power consumption.

              Air Ionizer

              The air ionizer feature will keep the air fresh by ionizing 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, this fan clean and purify 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 likely the filter is very easy to clean.

              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.

              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 feeling of nature air flow.

              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.
