While most U.S.
homes are built to include natural gas or electric heating systems, more than
one-third of Americans rely on fireplaces, wood and pellet stoves and other
appliances as their primary heat source. Unfortunately, most of these
appliances can only heat the one room in which they’re located.
model Geni 6xr is a new, easy-to-install through-wall fan that increases
airflow from room to room or level to level, enabling consumers to enjoy the
warmth from their fireplace or pellet stove in any room. Engineered to increase
the area that wood, pellet and gas appliances heat, the ComfortGeni uses no
more electricity than a 14-watt light bulb and costs less than $5 a year to
Named “Best Hearth Accessory” in Hearth & Home
magazine’s 2012 Vesta Awards, the ComfortGeni can also be used to enhance a
home’s existing HVAC system. When used as a register booster fan, the
three-speed ComfortGeni improves the central heating and cooling in that room.
“Heating and cooling uses more energy and costs more money
than any other system in your home,” said Bernie Pierce, president of
ComfortGeni. “Typically, 56 percent of your utility bill goes toward heating
and cooling. The ComfortGeni makes central HVAC systems and auxiliary heating
and cooling appliances more effective, which can drastically reduce your
monthly utility bill while improving the comfort of your home”
Most homes, old and new, experience temperature differences
from room to room. Depending on the season and several factors within the home,
such as inadequate insulation and infiltration in unfinished attics, basements
or room additions, these fluctuations can mean wearing sweaters in one room and
shorts in another.
The ComfortGeni also features a built-in temperature sensor
that will automatically shut the fan off when the source air temperature is
insufficient to create the desired temperature in the room, providing greater
energy efficiency than standard through-wall fans. When the source air again
exceeds the desired temperature, the sensor kicks in and the fan turns back on.
The powerful, but quiet ComfortGeni runs at a soft whisper,
and can be easily operated from any position or location in the home using the
remote control. The ComfortGeni is ideal for improving the effects of central
system registers, wood stoves, fireplaces, space heaters, window air
conditioners and split system.
Currently available for $134.95 in almond color, the
ComfortGeni model Geni 6xr blends into any décor and fits flush to the floor,
wall or ceiling. To find a retailer near you, please visit www.comfortgeni.com/retail-dealer-information.html.
