Honeywell 17000 Air Purifier Customer Q & A

Honeywell 17000 Air Purifier Product Details
Q1: 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.

Q2: 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.

Q3: 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.
