Technical specifications

The Honeywell HFD-120-Q is a good purifier that can clean air in rooms up to 186 square feet, so if you are planning to use it in a large room of up to 400 square or more, you will be a bit disappointed with it. Nonetheless, considering the fact that it has a very low price, it’s capable of purifying the air in medium-sized rooms as well. What’s important for you to know is the CADR of this model. The Clean Air Delivery Rate has a high rating of 132 for pollen. This value is considerably higher than the CADR of many comparable models.

Furthermore, this unit comes with a HEPA filter that can remove microorganisms and particles that are as small as 0.3 microns. HEPA filters are considered to be the most effective filtration devices and are featured in many air cleaners nowadays. Keep in mind that the ACH rating, meaning the Air Changes per Hour is 10 times for small rooms, 2.75 for large rooms and 5 times for medium rooms.

Performance

Because it’s an oscillating model, it provides more air circulation in your room. The only drawback is the fact that this unit doesn’t include an on/off switch so you can’t manually turn it off whenever you want. It will stop oscillating when it’s plugged off. These are some of the attributes:

  • The Honeywell can also release negative ions into the room so that smaller particles that are invisible to the naked eye get attached to the negative ions and then filtered through the air purifier
  • It’s also a very useful device for those of you who have pets at home or cook on a daily basis. It’s highly efficient at removing pet odor and cooking smells as well
  • Another great thing is the fact that you can choose to add another filter to remove germs like viruses and bacteria

Design

Design-wise, this is a good-looking appliance, with an attractive and ergonomic design. It is about 28’’ high and 11’’ wide, so it’s somewhat bulky and hard to maneuver but other than that it doesn’t have any flaws in terms of design. You will love the tower design and sleek lines that will fit with the decor of your house. The unit weighs about 14 pounds, making it one of the most lightweight models in its price range. This is one of the most energy efficient units available on the consumer market. It uses the same energy that a lamp uses to run continuously, namely 80 watts.

Convenience features

Depending on your needs and preferences, you can adjust the speed between low, medium and high. Keep in mind that if you choose to leave it high speed, the unit will be noisy, but on lower or medium settings it won’t generate a lot of noise, so it doesn’t interfere with your daily activities. Some of the innovative features are:

  • The best part about owning this particular model is the fact that it uses non-replaceable filters that can be washed and left to dry after one or more uses
  • The CADR rate for tobacco smoke is 110 so if you want to get rid of tobacco smoke and smell, this is a great choice, as it is one of the fewest air purifiers that can entirely remove tobacco smoke
  • This particular model is a great choice for people who are dealing with respiratory diseases like asthma or struggle with their allergy symptoms
