Your Honeywell air purifier
has five basic components:
the locking mechanism, the
endcap, the HEPA filter, the
activated carbon pre-filter,
and the base assembly
(with controls and motor).
LOCATE PRE-FILTER IN THE BOX AND INSTALL BEFORE INITIAL
Refer to “Removing/Changing the Filters” section for
• Ensure the air purifier is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
• Allow the unit to operate for a few seconds at HIGH speed,
then set the unit to HIGH or MEDIUM for faster, more powerful room
cleaning, or press the LOW button for quieter operation.
It is recommended you run your air purifier 24 hours a day to ensure
continuous cleaning. Portable air purifiers are more effective in
rooms where all doors and windows are closed.
For Best Performance
• Select a firm, level and flat location. For proper air flow, locate the unit at least 3 feet
(1 meter) from any wall or furniture.
• Due to the large volume of air drawn towards the air purifier, surrounding areas should
be cleaned and/or vacuumed frequently to prevent dust buildup. If the unit is placed
on light colored carpeting, a small mat or rug should be used to ease cleaning and
prevent any permanent staining of carpeting. This is particularly important in homes
with heavier contamination from smoking or fireplaces.
• Locate pre-filter in the box and install before initial operation. Refer to
“Removing/Changing the Filters” section for proper installation.
Operation: Model 17000
We recommend that you operate your Honeywell air purifier 24 hours a day because
indoor air can be quickly contaminated by activity in a room, infiltration of outside air,
and from other sources of contamination. While all the air in a room will not be
processed by the air purifier, the more air circulated through the filter, the more filtered
air is returned to the room. Portable air purifiers will be much more effective in rooms
where all doors and windows are closed.
