Filter Replacement for your

Honeywell Air Cleaner...

With proper maintenance, your Honeywell air cleaner is designed to provide years of high efficiency air cleaning. Your Honeywell air cleaner contains two filters: one activated carbon pre-filter and one primary HEPA filter.
The activated carbon pre-filter captures large airborne particles, and helps remove odors. The pre-filter should be replaced at least every 3 months. You may need to replace the pre-filter more often if the unit is used in a smoking environment or if unpleasant odors persist.
The primary HEPA filter should remain effective for 1 to 3 years, depending upon the environment in which the air cleaner is operating. Honeywell recommends changing the HEPA filter based upon operation conditions - every 3 years for light usage, 2 years for normal usage and 1 year for heavy usage.
Our recommendations regarding filter replacement intervals are intended as guidelines only.Life expectancy of any filter media is dependent on the concentration of the contaminants to which the system is exposed. If there are sources of large amounts of contaminant generation (such as woodworking or heavy smoking) the useful life of the filter media in your air cleaner may be reduced.
Whenever the combined air resistance of the activated carbon pre-filter and primary HEPA filter becomes excessive due to the amount of contaminants they have captured, the air cleaner will begin to audibly pulsate. Instead of a steady stream of air, rapid puffs" of air may be felt at the outlet slot. When this occurs, one of two conditions exists:
1. The activated carbon pre-filter is clogged and must be replaced.
2. If the unit continues to pulsate after a new pre-filter is installed, the useful life of the HEPA filter has been reached and it must be replaced.

Important ...

Replace the activated carbon pre-filter at least every 3 months. The activated carbon pre-filter is the element of your air cleaner that helps reduce normal household odors, captures lint and other large particles and protects and helps extend the life of the HEPA filter.

If there are heavy concentrations of odors, smoke, or large particles in the home, you may need to change the activated carbon pre-filter more often.

We DO NOT recommend operating the air cleaner without the activated carbon pre-filter. The HEPA filter may become contaminated and begin to emit any odors captured.

CAUTION: Do not attempt to wash either the activated carbon pre-filter or the HEPA filter.

They are not washable and washing will damage the filters.
