Honeywell 17000 Air Purifier Customer Q & A

Honeywell 17000 Air Purifier Product Details
Q1: My bedroom is approximately 252 sq ft. What size quiet honeywell unit should I purchase?

A: The 50150 is likely your best bet. You can likely squeak by with the 17000 but you'll be giving up 1-2 air exchanges per hour. Plus, the 50150 has a larger activated carbon prefilter and larger HEPA filter, so while the replacement costs are going to be about the same for both units replacement prefilter is universally sized, perforated sheet that you tear/cut to fit your specific model, and the cost difference in the HEPA filter is $7 - two stackable filters for each unit, you wind up with more filter media in 50150, better filtration, and a better CADR. Hope that helps!

Q2: Other than dimensions,and ten dollars, what are the differences between the Honeywell 17000-S and the Honeywell 17005 Electrical amps each unit?

A: Cost, a remote and digital/manual controls are the only significant differences. They are nearly identical, save the type of controls each uses.

Q3: I plan to use an air purifier in my bedroom, but I'm very sensitive to light while sleeping. Does this unit have any glowing buttons?

A: Yes, one small blue light by each of the three fan settings so only one lights at a time. They are literally no bigger than a tic-tac, so could easily be covered by very small pieces of electrical tape. The only other lights on the unit appear when the filters need to be changed.

Q4: Does the 17000 clean up dust mites and their debris? When do you change the hepa filter? pre filter?

A: Yes, it will capture dust mite and the the dust mite allergen dust mites feces and dead body parts. The HEPA filter should be changed in this unit every 3-5 years. So you get about as much use out of this HEPA filter as the more expensive brands. The prefilter should be replaced every 3 months. It can be vacuumed and reused, but it's ability to adsorb odors willl be spent by the 3 month mark, though it will continue to capture large particles like pet hair.
