Honeywell Compact Air Purifier HHT-011 HEPA Clean Review

Honeywell Compact Air Purifier is best if you need to purify the air in smaller spaces or rooms. It uses 3 stage filtration system.

Firstly the air goes through washable pre-filter which captures larger airborne particles. Then it goes through a permanent HEPA-Type filter which captures up to 95% particles including spores, pet dander, smoke, pollen, and dust.

After that air enters ionizer field. Ionizer creates ozone, but you can turn it off if you wish.

I bought this table top air purifier with low expectations, but it’s been a godsend.

Buyer

As it uses permanent HEPA filter, you’ll never need to replace it. The filter only needs to be washed from time to time.

The permanent filter will save you money as you will not need to buy replacement often (as it is necessary for most air purifiers).

What you should know is just because it says permanent filter on the box, it doesn’t mean you should forget about its existence.

The permanent part means you don’t need to replace the filter every time it collects enough dust and particles. You only wash it, let it dry and then put it back into the purifier.

Even so, you will still need to replace it with a new one eventually. But that interval is measured in years rather than days or months.

SMALL BUT POWERFULL

Regardless of what you’re looking for, chances are the HHT-011 Air Purifier can provide you with everything you need without breaking the bank with average prices ranging between $40 and $49.

This model comes with a light indicator that lets you know when it’s time to clean the filter.

Honeywell Compact Air Purifier HHT-011 HEPA Clean is one of the most popular models available. This is a compact air cleaner. It means it’s quite smaller than most others purifiers available on the market.

Measuring at 5.8 x 9.4 x 12.9 inches, it can fit nicely on a desk or table. The smaller size makes this purifier ideal for offices and smaller size rooms.

Its design is aesthetic, friendly and small as well as compact enough to put on a table not only horizontally but also vertically.

 

Honeywell Compact Air Purifier Review

You will have no difficulty in moving Honeywell Compact Air Purifier with Permanent HEPA filter HHT-011 as well as carrying it to any place you wish.

Besides, the illuminated control panel can help you quickly adjust the machine. Meanwhile, the electronic filter clean reminder can let you know the time to clean the filter.

You can choose between three different speed settings. Low, medium and high. The unit is silent when on the lowest speed setting.

Even the medium setting is pretty tolerable if you’re not sensitive to a bit of “white noise.” In fact, you’ll most likely forget about it being there when using it during the day.

It does get a bit loud when set on high. But you only need this setting if there is a large concentration of dust in the room or a bad smell you need to get rid of quickly.

Compact, easy to move when needed. Performance is good. Smoke does not drift into my Apt as much & when it does, the Honeywell takes care of it.

I do not run it 24/7 as the instructions recommend, but when it’s needed, I am happy.

Buyer

My advice would be to use the first two levels when you’re at home and set it to high when you’re not around. Although it isn’t that much noise on the highest speed and for many people, this isn’t an issue.

You can upgrade Honeywell Compact Air Purifier HHT-011 to include an ionizer which adds additional level of filtration.

While this isn’t technically a feature, the price of the Honeywell HHT-011 purifier is so affordable you will be able to purchase several and put one in every room of your home if you want.

 

Honeywell Compact Air Purifier Features

The price is one reason consumer love Honeywell HHT-011 air purifier so much. A lot of customers really get a kick out of the fact that the unit only weighs a little over five pounds but can keep the air in an 85 square foot room clean, all for less than $50.

Most buyers are pleased how easy this air purifier is to set up and use. Unlike some air purifiers, all you have to is to remove the plastic from the unit, plug it in, and turn it on. No assembly required.

  • Three fan speeds with an optional ionizer setting
  • For small rooms up to 85 sq ft.
  • Permanent HEPAClean filter
  • Removes dust, pollen, pet dander and mold spores
  • Nightlight feature provides soft illumination

The fact that there are three levels of filtration to choose from when running the unit make it great for any buyer.

Satisfied customers love the fact that they don’t have to worry about replacing their filter and the one they do have is easy to clean.

All the HEPA filter needs is a little vacuuming off every few months or so, and you’re good to go for as long as you own the unit.

Honeywell Hepaclean Compact Air Purifier HHT-011 unit as a whole is incredibly easy to clean and maintain.

When you want to clean the pre-filter on the unit, all you have to do is turn the air purifier off, remove the face plate, rinse off the pre-filter, and put it back on.

The Honeywell Compact HHT-011 is durable, efficient, and provides an instant effect on the air quality of your home.

We purchased several of these for our house (one for each bedroom). I can honestly say that we can tell the difference.

The air smells cleaner, and we can sleep at night with less pollen in the air. I don’t wake up congested anymore. Worth the money.

Buyer

One of the most “common” complaints among buyers is sound. The first and second settings are relatively quiet, but the third is a little more noticeable.

Some people find the third setting on the air purifier tolerable while others do not. This is understandable.

For instance, if you sleep with your air purifier running in your bedroom at night, it can be noisy. But if you run it in another room, the noise is not as noticeable.

Some consumers don’t like the fact that the Honeywell is made to sit horizontally most of the time rather than vertically.

Its loud. I don’t feel like it makes much difference in a 10×11 foot room. I have had much better air filtering from other machines. You could use it as a loud annoying fan, and maybe it blows some cleaner air at you.

Buyer

They feel it cannot adequately clean both the upper and lower halves of the room unless it is sitting on an elevated object such as a table top.

Some even feel as though the unit isn’t as powerful as Honeywell states and that claiming the unit can service a room of up 85 square feet might be pushing it just a little.

Last update was on: 11/04/2019 03:30

Other than being too noisy or not purifying the air adequately from ground level, there just isn’t a lot of negative press about this air purifier.

Both of these complaints have easy fixes. Do not run the unit on the third setting when in the room, and keep the unit off the floor and on a table or countertop instead.

Honeywell HHT-011 Compact with Permanent HEPA Filter

Washing the filter is easy. The pre-filter can be hand washed under water, and the main permanent filter can be vacuumed with the household vacuum.

If you are suffering from severe allergies, then Honeywell Compact Air Purifier is the air purifier for you.

Honeywell Compact HHT-011 Air Purifier FAQ

I cleaned my filter but the little red light on the top of the machine will not go off.

Right below the red light is a recessed reset button for the light. Once you clean the filter stick a pencil or an object that can fit into the recessed button below the red light to reset the cleaning indicator.

Is it quiet?

Not exactly. On the highest speed, it is noisy. On the lowest, it is tolerable. However, the room is very small. In a larger room, I would hardly notice it.

How well does it work for a smoke?

It is great for removing smoke odors.

How does this unit work with cat litter dust?

Ii does well. But you will have to clean air purifier more often.

Does it create ozone when operating?

Some small amount of ozone will be generated when the ionizer is switched on.

Is the filter permanent or not?

Not permanent! The prefilter can be washed and replaced, but not the HEPA type filter.

Does this clean dust?

No, just air filtration, plus the unit isn’t large enough to capture what is filtered out, so it reduces instead of removes.

This purifier filters out dust, pollen, smoke, spores from mold and pet dander. Those airborne particles and gasses are most of the things that bother people with allergies.

Even people who do not have aversions to allergens can benefit from the cleaner air that is the result of this air purifier.

I am a smoker. During the winter months, I smoke in a spare bedroom to avoid freezing outside. The smell was so bad I really thought I was going to have to replace the carpet.

I got this little machine and left it on overnight and by morning I was stunned. The smell was gone. I am here to say that this device WILL take away tobacco and cigarette odors. I was skeptical too – but it works.
