Honeywell 17000-S QuietCare True HEPA Air Purifier Review


The Honeywell 17000-S QuietCare True HEPA air purifier is made for small rooms up to 200 square feet (18.5m). Price is around $100 that makes this unit approachable.Honeywell 17000-S QuietCare True HEPA Air Purifier review

Design, size, placement

The Honeywell 17000-S have really nice and attractive design, white color. The unit is medium size. Height 15in (38cm), width 13in (33cm), depth 17in (43cm). Built-in handle and lightweight 13.7lbs (6.2kg) makes it easy to move it from space to space.

The best place for Honeywell 17000-S may be the floor, but you can place it on the table or anywhere you want, just remember to not block air outlet. Leave 3 feet (1 meter) in all directions.

How it works and what sources of indoor pollution destroy

The Honeywell 17000-S works with a fan. A fan sucks dirty air in through filters to clean it. The permanent True HEPA filter removes 99.97% of particles – dust, dirt, pet dander, smoke, pollen, mold spores. Pre-filter is placed all around HEPA filter and it assists in removing common household odors helping extend the life of the HEPA filter.

Features 

  • The control panel has 4 electronic push buttons – off, low, medium and high mode. Looks way better than digital controls.
  • Filter replacement indicator and filter clean indicator eases you the job.
  • Carrying handle helps you easily maneuver the air purifier.
  • 5 years warranty

Noise level

Even at its lowest setting, the Honeywell 17000-S is quite loud. The specification says minimum 47 decibels and maximum 57 decibels. In decibel equivalent table, I found that 50 decibels are like heavy rainfall. Yes, just hitting your metal window sill.

CADR 

  • Dust Rating: 130 CADR
  • Smoke Rating: 130 CADR
  • Pollen Rating: 130 CADR

Room size 200 square feet, ceiling height 8 feet.

200×8 = 1600 cubic feet.

As all CADR ratings are same, 1600/130=12 minutes. That is the time how fast all air in your 200 square feet room goes through Honeywell 17000-S.

Maintenance and upkeep

The pre-filter should be replaced at least every 3 months and it costs $20. That’s $80/year. If you are a smoker, you may need to replace the pre-filter more often.

The primary HEPA filter should remain effective for 1 to 3 years, depending upon the circumstance in which the air purifier is operating. Honeywell recommends changing the HEPA filter based
upon operation conditions-every 3 years for light usage, 2 years for normal usage and 1 year for heavy usage. The bad thing is that there is no HEPA filter for this model so you will need to put together 2 smaller filters. One costs $30, so for both $60.

Both filters are easy to change. You need to unscrew just one bolt without any instrument.

Power usage is 58 watts at the lowest setting and 80 watts at highest which is ok.

Summary

The Honeywell 17000-S QuietCare True HEPA is good working air purifier for small rooms with affordable price.

Pluses:

  • Does the job well, you will feel a difference in the first day.
  • Carrying handle is very useful.
  • Easy to change filters
  • Filter replacement indicator

Minuses:

  • Noise. Yes, I know, noise means it is working but I think that air purifier should be quieter.
  • No HEPA replacement filter for this model. You will have to buy 2 other filters to adjust with this unit.

My name is Ryan. I have had a hard time dealing with my allergies. Happily, I found that an air purifier was effective to ease my allergy symptoms. I spent a lot of time researching the best air purifier. I know how hard it can be to find the suitable one.

During the reading period, I also read a lot about humidifiers and dehumidifiers. I learned the mechanisms behind the technologies as well as the manufacturers and organizations within the industry.

I now feel convinced that I have built a guide that shows you all you need to know about air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers. So I came up with the idea of creating this website.
