Breathe Easy with Honeywell


Having five pets, four dogs and one cat, coming in and out all day and suffering from allergies presents some unique problems.  In a perfect world we would all take off our shoes at the door and leave the outside irritants outside. However all the pollens come running in with my pets who love to shake them off at every chance. In addition to the outside being tracked in all day, we also live in an older home which seems to have magical dust that reappears as soon as you have dusted! The only way to handle our indoor air challenges is to use an air filter.

We use the Honeywell HPA-150 True HEPA Tower Allergen Remover. It’s a stylish tower that doesn't clash with our décor and looks nice in the bedroom where I need the most help with air quality. It was really easy to get started using it as well. The first thing you do is take off the back cover and remove the filters. Then remove the plastic from the filters and re-install them. There is also a pre filter that you simply press into place and then snap the grille back in place. Now you find a level place and plug in the air filter.

It has three operation speeds. The lowest speed is what I use at night since we sleep in the room with it and it is whisper quite on that speed. I run it on full speed during the day and while I don’t really notice it now, at first I did notice the sound of it running. I really love that it has indicator lights to let me know when the filters need replacing, because I have a bad memory even when I write things down.

The true HEPA filter captures up to 99.97% of microscopic allergens such as pollen, dust, smoke, and pet dander. It captures particles as small as 0.3 microns. The carbon pre-filter captures larger particles, reduces unpleasant household odors, and also reduces certain common household gases.  Basically what that means is I can take less OTC allergy relief medicines and even my husband who doesn’t really suffer from allergies gets fresher air! We have noticed a real difference in the way I feel and the smell in the room. In spite of the pets it actually smells fresh, which is a nice change.

If you are looking for a new air filter please browse the Honeywell site. They offer a wide variety of air filters and you are sure to find one that will fit your needs and space.  You can also connect with Honeywell on Facebook and Twitter.
