You can use the lowest level in rooms with less dust and allergens, and the highest level in rooms with more dust or allergens. You can also use the highest setting on the Honeywell Air Purifier HFD-120-Q air purifier in instances where a sudden odor—like burnt food from the kitchen—permeates your home, to remove the odor quickly.
Filters That Help With Pet Hair Removal
Another advantage of the Honeywell Air Purifier HFD-120-Q air purifier is that it has both HEPA and ifD filters, as well as an ionizer. This means that it works well with pollen, pet hair and dander, dust, and smoke. ifD filters use positively and negatively charged electrodes to capture particles that are floating in the air. ifD filters work in the same way that a balloon can stick to other objects with static. The weak electric charges hold on to small particles like pet hair or dander and trap them in the filter.
Before discovering the Honeywell Air Purifier HFD-120-Q air purifier, many consumers are afraid they must buy two different units—one does deal with the pet dander and hair and other allergens, and one solely for smoke odor.
