The recommended space for this air purifier is 170-190 sq. ft. so it is great for small and medium rooms. The device works quickly and effectively circulating air five times per hour. If the unit is placed in a smaller room, it provides more air changes in the same period of time.

HFD-120-Q air cleaner offers 3 filtration levels which include a preliminary filter, a permanent IFD collector and an ionizer. The IFD filter is the main component – it captures plant pollen, odors, fume, and other particles. One of its primary advantages is that it doesn’t require replacement. The component can be removed, vacuumed and washed under running water.
The built-in ionizer eliminates the airborne particles before they reach the lungs and makes the environment really clean and refreshing. The device emits ozone in small amounts. Its volume doesn’t exceed the permitted limit. Nevertheless, the people with respiratory diseases are not recommended to use any ionic devices even with the lowest emission level.
Honeywell air purifier hfd 120 q is equipped with a powerful fan that forces the air through a three-step filtration system which captures particles up to 2 microns in size.
When you start it for the first time, there is a slight smell of a new device but it will disappear soon.
The Honeywell hfd-120-q tower air purifier should be placed at least 3 ft. away from any barrier. It is also very important to install a device on a flat firm surface. While the unit is operating, the large air volume is drawn in it and then released from the air cleaner in a fresh condition. The immediate space should be kept clean to avoid quick filter contamination and to increase the device lifespan.
The control panel is located on the top of the unit and includes three fan adjusters. In addition, it is equipped with an indicator reminding you to wash the filter.
Low energy consumption
The unit requires 110V power which is standard for North America. The Honeywell HFD 120 Q is certified with Energy Star which means the device boasts the highest efficiency level.
The model boasts oscillation features which make the air circulate in all directions. The oscillating characteristic cannot be switched off, so the unit will oscillate for as long as it operates.
This Honeywell model is really quiet; it was created for use in bedrooms and it doesn’t disturb sleeping residents. You will not hear anything at its lowest speed. The unit produces some sound when it works faster, but it’s never too noisy.
