Honeywell 17005 Air Purifier

Honeywell 17005 Approved Allergy Friendly by UK Allergy & British Allergy FoundationIf you're looking for an air purifier for a small room like a bedroom, office, or child's room, the Honeywell 17005 QuietCare air purifier will barely make a sound as it effectively traps airborne allergens and pollutants. Best of all, with the permanent, lifetime HEPA filter, you'll never have to spend money on costly replacements!

More doctors recommend Honeywell air purifiers to their patients than any other brand. Now you can enjoy the benefits of high efficiency air cleaning without expensive replacement HEPA filter costs. The True HEPA filter removes at least 99.97% of common allergens as small as 0.3 microns from the air passing through it. This includes dust, pollen, tobacco smoke, mold spores and cat dander. In addition, it helps reduce airborne viruses and bacteria. The activated carbon pre-filter captures larger airborne particles and helps remove common household odors and provides some smoke filtration. QuietCare sound reducing technology provides ultra quiet operation while the air in your room is circulated and filtered several times an hour.

This Honeywell HEPA air purifier also offers convenient, energy-saving programmable controls which allow you to preset the unit to shut-off when you are away and turn on when you generally use the room, thus minimizing energy costs. A remote control is included for added convenience. The permanent HEPA filter is easy to clean - simply vacuum on average twice a year. Also features an electronic filter indicator which reminds you when to clean the HEPA filter and when to replace the carbon pre-filter.

It works great. A little bit loud but gets the job done. It's nice for the summer because it does blow out cold air. I leave it far from ne during the winter because I can't stand having the cold air blow at me. but other than that, the product works great!
  Superb Air Purifier!

I bought the 17005 a week ago and I couldn't be happier! I've been using smaller "hepa type" purifiers as main units, but the Honeywell 17005 blows them away as a main unit. Plus I will save $100 + plus yearly on filter cost, as the 17005 has a permanent true filter.

Customer Q & A

Q1: Would the Honeywell 17005 work to help clear the air to avoid a baby's middle of the night congestion, likely due to general dust, one cat, and dry air?

A: Yes, particularly if the cause of the congestion is dust, dust mites, dander, or other particulate that a HEPA air purifier can trap. You also might want to take a look at the bed/bedding. If it's a waterproof mattress, then there shouldn't be any issues with dust mites. If it's a traditional style mattress innerspring, you may want want to consider a crib mattress cover as it can likely hold particles and allergens. Carpet in the room can also contribute as carpet effectively acts as an allergen sponge, holding dander, dust, dust mites, mold spores, and all manner of particles. Lastly, wash the bedding in hot water or use a laundry additive that denatures allergens. All or any combination of these things should help. Hope that helps!

Q2: How often doyou change the permanent Hepa Filter??

A: They've changed this a bit over the years, but it now reflects what is standard for most HEPA filter. Replace every 3-5 years. You can push this a bit if you have access to compressed air and periodically remove the filter and blow air back through it in the reverse direction of normal airflow.

Honeywell 17005 Air Purifier Reviews

Honeywell 17005 Air Purifier

I purchased a Honeywell 17005 QuietCare to help with my daughter. She was starting college, and she needed an air purifier that would help with her allergy symptoms. I must say that this machine performs very well for the price and was very easy to carry into her dorm room. Whenever she comes home or goes on a trip, she takes it with her and keeps it running. I believe it has helped her get through the first year at college without so many days of having a runny nose and itchy eyes.

What I like about the Honeywell 17005

  • With true HEPA filtration it is very effective against allergy symptoms for such an inexpensive machine.
  • It's lightweight and easily portable with the built-in handle for carrying.
  • It has a remote, a timer function, and a filter life monitor.

What I do not like about the Honeywell 17005

  • It doesn't remove as many contaminants as some of the more expensive units.
  • It contains a carbon pre-filter rather than a full carbon canister, so while it does offer some filtration of odors and smoke, it is not as effective as larger, more expensive air purifiers.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Honeywell. It certainly has worked well for my daughter. It alleviated her allergy symptoms, making her more productive with her schoolwork. However, if your allergy symptoms are severe (like my husband's), you may want to look into a more substantial machine. But for people with mild environmental allergies, this is a great choice.
