Honeywell Frequently Asked Questions

How quiet are Honeywell air purifiers?

All Honeywell air purifiers are extremely quiet. The QuietCare air purifier offers patented sound-reducing technology which provides very quiet operation. With a specially designed fan blade, a rubber isolated motor mount, padded feet, and added insulation, the Honeywell QuietCare air purifier is both quiet and efficient.

How many filters do Honeywell air purifiers use?

Both the Honeywell QuietCare and Enviracaire Air Purifiers use two air filters, a true HEPA filter that removes at least 99.97% of common household particles as small as 0.3 microns and a Pre-filter that traps large air particles.

When do I need to change the filters in Honeywell air purifiers?

Fortunately, Honeywell air purifiers contain a permanent HEPA filter which never needs replacing. Just vacuum twice a year! The pre-filter will last an average of three months for both Honeywell Enviracaire and Quietcare air purifiers.

What is the Intelli-Check Monitoring system in Honeywell air purifiers?

The Intelli-Check Filter Monitor serves as a convenient guideline for replacement of the pre-filter. Based on the Honeywell air purifier's hours of use and operating speed, the Intelli-Check Monitoring system will alert you when it's time for a new filter. Each filter bar will fill up from clean to dirty. Once the bar is completely full, it's time to replace the filter.

How do I change the filters in the Honeywell air purifiers?

To change the pre-filter for the Honeywell QuietCare air purifier, simply disconnect the unit from the power supply to ensure safety. Next, unscrew locking mechanism by turning it counter-clockwise. Remove end-cap from unit and remove filter assembly. Undo fasteners and remove used pre-filter. Install new pre-filter by securing it around the HEPA filter with fasteners provided. Replace the end-cap, and insert and tighten locking mechanism by turning it clockwise. Finally, discard the filter and plug the unit back again to continue receiving clean, fresh air.

Can any of the filters in Honeywell air purifiers be cleaned and reused?

The HEPA filter is designed to be vacuumed twice a year and reused. The Honeywell pre-filter, however, cannot be washed and reused. Once the Honeywell Intelli-Check Monitoring System displays a dirty pre-filter warning, the Pre-filter must be replaced.

Where should I use my Honeywell air purifier?
