Honeywell Long-Life 17000-S

Everybody knows that an air purifier with many features and sophisticated technologies can cost a fortune and not everybody wants to invest in an expensive product. Luckily, you can obtain performance without ruining your budget if you opt for the Honeywell Long-Life 17000-S that only costs $89. You will discover a good air filter that can handle medium to large rooms with excellent results in capturing a wide range of air pollutants.

Technical specifications

You can place the Honeywell Long-Life 17000-S in rooms up to 168 square feet in size and you won’t have to worry about its performance because the reliable manufacturer has built this air purifier so that it can successfully eliminate a wide range of airborne pollutants. The CADR ratings are very important because they determine the amount of air the unit can circulate every minute, thus proving its efficiency. It has a Clean Air Delivery Rate of 130 for smoke, 130 for dust, and 130 for pollen, meaning it can filter 130 cubic feet of air per minute and cleaning it from dust, smoke and pollen.

The 3 speeds you can choose not only influence the suction power, but also the noise level. At the low speed, it’s so quiet that you can sleep near it or watch TV without being disturbed by the noise. The high speed is a little louder, so you might want to set it on High when you are not in the room. Despite the high efficiency it shows in purifying the air, it has a low energy consumption of around 80 watts, which is similar to a standard light bulb.

Performance

The Honeywell Long-Life uses 2 types of filters that work together to ensure a good absorption of the impurities in the air. In order to make it more silent, Honeywell has used the QuietCare technology that ensures the best sound insulation that makes the unit 35% quieter while keeping it very efficient. These are some of its features:

  • The most important and highly-efficient filter is the true HEPA that can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns, including dust mites and allergens
  • Besides this filter, there is a carbon activated pre-filter that retains larger particles like lint, pet hair, mold spores, and pet dander, as well as common odors from smoking, cooking, or pets
  • The 3 adjustable speeds allow you to set the right level to each room size, so the unit will yield

Convenient

The only adjustments you can make are the speed level and the filter you want it to use. Each speed has a button on the control panel and a indicator light next to it, so every time you press a button, the light lets you know the speed. The HEPA filter is permanent, but you will have to remember to change the pre-filter every 3 months to make sure the unit will keep working properly. It’s made of glass-fiber that is more resistant and allows you to vacuum it so it will remain clean during the time it filters the air. The medium CARD rating doesn’t guarantee high performance if you place the unit in a room too large, as it best suits medium-size spaces
