The Honeywell QuietCare™ 17005 Programmable True HEPA Air Purifier (for smaller rooms up to 200 square feet), now comes with Permanent HEPA filtration so that you can enjoy the benefits of cleaner air and save money on costly filter replacements. The True HEPA filter captures 99.97% of airborne particles down to 0.3 microns, and can simply be vacuumed twice a year (depending on use) instead of replaced. Of course, you can still replace the HEPA every 1-5 years if the filter gets clogged, damaged, or if you prefer to buy new. The QuietCare 17005 also comes with an activated carbon pre-filter to trap larger airborne particles and reduce odors and gases, keeping air fresh while protecting the HEPA. The economical pre-filter is not washable, and will require replacement every 3 months.

Tip: Replace the pre-filter when the indicator light turns red. This will keep the machine performing at its best, and alleviate undue particle stress on the HEPA.

Doctors often recommend Honeywell air purifiers to their patients because they trust in Honeywell's performance. The Honeywell QuietCare 17005 effectively removes airborne allergens, particles and other contaminants that can aggravate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory disorders. The QuietCare 17005 is AHAM Certified¹ to clean air in rooms up to 200 square feet. As air circulates through the unit (several times an hour), microscopic particles are removed, including dust, dust mite allergen, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, soot, tobacco smoke, light household odors and gases, and even some germs, viruses and bacteria. Honeywell goes a step further. Its SurroundSeal™ technology helps prevent the particles circulating through the unit from bypassing the HEPA and leaching back into the room.

The Honeywell QuietCare 17005 comes with an electronic control panel and a remote. Customers frequently remark on how much they love the convenience of the remote. The unit comes with a digital clock, something you don't often see in air purifiers. You can operate the QuietCare 17005 manually or use the energy-saving programmable controls to customize up to 2 program cycles in a 24-hour period. For example, you can set the unit to run on "High" for 8 hours while you're at work, and then have it switch to "Low" when you're home. The owner's manual provides very good instructions on how to program the settings. A backup battery (included) lets you temporarily unplug the unit and not lose your settings (a feature not typically found in programmable air purifiers).

Honeywell uses its QuietCare™ sound-reducing technology to provide quieter operation while air is being circulated through the purifier. The unit is quietest on "Low" and loudest on "High". With sounds levels of between only 47-57 dBA (decibels), the QuietCare 17005 runs more quietly on all settings than the Honeywell 50150 or 50250. Some customers who use the QuietCare 17005 in their bedrooms prefer to run the unit on "High" during the day (or for a few hours before retiring), and then switch it to "Low" for overnight use. However and wherever you choose to use it, customers categorically report they sleep better, breathe better, have less coughs, sneezes, and sinus infections, wake up free of congestion, itchiness, and runny noses, and generally feel much better using the Honeywell QuietCare™ 17005 air purifier.  5-Year Limited Mfr.

Honeywell 17005 QuietCare™ Air Purifier Instructions

Please see Owner's Manual tab for setup and operating instructions, plus full instructions on changing the filters.

General on Pre-Filter:

  • Replace the pre-filter approximately every 3 months.

  • Pre-filter is Honeywell part # 38002 (or equivalent).

  • The pre-filter absorbs odors and captures large airborne particles that enter the air cleaner. Therefore, regularly changing the pre-filter will keep your air cleaner performing at its best, and preserve the life of the HEPA filter.

General on HEPA Filter:

  • The 17005 comes with a Permanent HEPA filter that is easy to clean – just vacuum at least twice a year (depending on use) for optimum performance.

  • If you have an older 17005 without a Permanent HEPA filter, or if you have not maintained the permanent filter in the newer 17005, or it becomes damaged or permanently clogged (or if you just prefer a new filter), you can choose to replace the HEPA with either the:

    1. Honeywell HEPA part # 20500. This is the full-size, non-stackable HEPA replacement (so only 1 is required for the unit), and is available through National Allergy, or

    2. Honeywell "D" type HEPA filter, part # HRF-D1 (single pack). These are the short-size, stackable HEPA replacements – two (2) are required for the 17005 (not available through National Allergy).

  • Regular maintenance helps to prolong the life of the HEPA filter. Keep the area surrounding the air purifier clean, and be sure to change the pre-filter approximately every 3 months.

NOTE:   Do NOT immerse the pre-filter or HEPA filter(s) in water - they are NOT washable.
