Recently I was lucky enough to receive the Honeywell Heat Bud Personal Heater and I have to admit that this is one of the review items that my husband has bragged about the most. To be honest Shane doesn’t talk much at all (Shocker since I talk all of the time, right?!?). Well I had asked him about things that he needed to try and find something for review. He expressed to me that his heater that was in the basement got broken when our basement flooded last summer. Since this is something that he had used every single day last winter, I went on a hunt to find a great personal heater for his work area in our basement.
What I found when I was searching was that Honeywell has some great rated heaters that are supposed to work really well without taking up too much space. So I was pretty excited to be able to test out the Heat Bud because it is really small enough for him to set on his desk. The best thing is that he tells me that it works really well and that it really helps him to stay warm at his desk. Since his desk is such a mess and I am too embarrassed to post pictures I thought that I would share stock shots with you. This is only because his desk is his space and I do not feel like I should be moving things or cleaning it up no matter how crazy it drives me.
The Heat Bud is a personal sized heater that is perfect for anyone who is hoping to stay warm this winter. It works great and is small enough that it can really be placed anywhere. The heater is made from ceramic too so we know that it is going to last a long time without problems. It also looks cute when it is sitting out thanks to its modern design and multiple color choices. Not only does it provide a lot of eat for its size, it also only uses 250 watts of energy! This really makes it great for anyone who is trying to save money without making them have to sit around being cold.
Tips to Save Money and Stay Warm This Winter
**Look for Items with the Energy Star Label
When you are shopping for personal heaters or other items to help you stay warm look for ones that have the energy star label on them. This is going to ensure that you are choosing products that use the least amount of energy. I love that the Heat Bud only uses 250 watts of power or less.
**Keep Thermostat Set No Higher Than 68
It can be tempting to keep turning your thermostat up this winter but the higher you go, the more money that you are going to be spending. Think about keeping your house at around 65-67 degrees and do not go higher than 68. This can save you hundreds throughout the winter months and no your children are not going to get sick from playing in this temperature. Think about summer time and when you turn your AC on, most Americans turn theirs on when it is just 70 degrees outside.
**Clean Vents, Registers, and Filters
Cleaning out the vents, registers and filters is going to make it easier for air to flow through them which will help it stay warmer using less energy.
**Use Electric Heaters in Colder Rooms
Using small personal heaters like the Heat Bud can really save you money when heating your home this winter. We live in an old house that has really high ceilings in our living room and dining room so it is especially important for us to use small heaters in the rooms that we are sitting in so that we can avoid spending extra money on heating bills all winter long.
