Honeywell HFD-120-Q Tower Air Purifier


  The Honeywell HFD-120-Q air purifier is a fast filtering, quiet and efficient air cleaner that is able to filter a medium size room from various airborne contaminants that are responsible for respiratory diseases such as allergies and asthma.

This effective air cleaning ability is due to the 3-stage filtration system that utilizes three different technologies to clean the air - washable pre-filter, IFD HEPA-type filter and the built-in ionizer.

Together, the Honeywell HFD-120-Q filtration system captures 17 times more pollutants compared to ionic air purifiers.

Pros Honeywell Air Purifier

  • The HFD-120-Q is so quiet that it is easy to forget that the air purifier is even on.
  • The attractive tower design is a positive addition to any room. Additionally, the tall, thin design saves precious space too.
  • Not only is the HFD-120-Q affordable, it saves you money with not having to buy replacement filters on a constant basis.
  • The 5-year limited warranty makes this air purifier very attractive to purchase.

Cons Of Honeywell Air Purifier

  • The ionizer produces some amount of ozone by-product which could be worrisome to some customers.
  • Because the ionizer works by emitting charges particles that cling to the air impurities, the resulting effect is a thin, black film on objects around the purifier. For that reason, the HFD-120-Q has to be placed some distance from the wall which makes it inconvenient to navigate around.
  • The fan puts out a lot of cold air which could make it uncomfortable during the winter months.
  • Although the HFD-120-Q has been designed to operate quietly, sometimes the unit will eventually make a lot of noise.

What does Honeywell HFD-120-Q Air Purifier offer its Users?

  • 3-Stage Filtration System

  • Washable Pre-filter

    Pre-filters act as the first line in defense when filtering dirty air of household pollutants.

    The washable pre-filter traps large size particles such as dust and pollen which allows the main filter, the IFD, do its job more efficiently.

    Better yet, the pre-filter is permanent which eliminates the need to buy costly replacement filters on a regular basis.

    Honeywell IFD HEPA-type Filter

    The IFD (Intense Field Dielectric) filter electrically charges and then captures smaller size particulates including microscopic particles that had passed through the pre-filter stage.

    The IFD filter is so effective in its performance that it is able to remove 99.97% of airborne household contaminants as small as 2 microns such as pet dander, tobacco smoke, mold spores and so much more.

    Like the pre-filter, the lifelong IFD filter is permanent which means not having to buy replacement filters.

    Built-in Ionizer

    The built-in ionizer produces negative ions that help boost the cleaning power and instantly freshens stale and musty air.

    It also helps to remove bad household odors such as pet odors and cigarette smoke.

  • Performance
  • This Honeywell air cleaner has the ability to clean a medium size room up to 170 sq. ft.

    It is so efficient that it is able to completely regenerate the air in a standard size room (12’ x 14’) every 12 minutes, providing a constant source of breathable, fresh air.

    The Whisper Quiet technology allows for extra quiet operation at all fan speeds therefore, the HFD-120-Q QuietClean can be run throughout the night without causing a disturbance.

    Washable Pre-filter

    The pre-filter is cleaned simply by rinsing it under warm water, at least one time per month. It must be thoroughly dry before placing it back into the unit.

    IFD Hepa-type Filter

    This filter can be easily cleaned simply by vacuuming first. If vacuuming did not totally clean the filter, then it can be washed in soap and water.

    The IFD filter should be completely dry before placing back into the unit. Like the pre-filter, the IFD filter should be cleaned on a monthly basis.

  • Price And Warranty
  • For an affordable price, the Honeywell HFD-120-Q range in prices from $140 - $180.
