3-CADR And ACH Rating:

Area coverage for Honeywell 17000-S is 200sq.ft.So it is best suitable for small to medium rooms like a small bedroom, kitchen or home office. This area coverage is more than Honeywell HPA 100(155 sq.ft.) with the same price.

Clean air delivery rate(CADR) rating for this purifier is the same for 3 major pollutants i.e for Dust(130), Pollen(130cfm) and Smoke is(130cfm) .Time is taken by this purifier to clean the 200 sq.ft. area is noticed as 12 minutes.

ACH(Air change per hour) rating tells us how much time an appliance takes to clean a room. This ACH rating is determined by “X” multiplied by the number of times air exchange through the purifier. For Honeywell 17000-S, the rating is 5X means it has the ability to clean the room air 5 times per hour. Air exchange through this purifier after every 12 minutes.



4-Effect On Electricity:

Two most frequent questions that customers ask during purchasing air purifier;

  • For what time span should air purifier be used?
  • How much electricity does an air purifier utilize?

Our loyal advice is to read the energy specs from the manual before purchase or use of the purifier.

In the case of Honeywell 17000-S, it uses 80 Watts at lower speed and 123 Watts at full speed, which is somewhat high with these specs. 

For your knowledge;

One unit electricity = 1 KW (1000 watts)/per one hr.

The formula for monthly electricity usage and per month electricity cost is;

Monthly Electricity Usage = (Air Purifiers rated Power x Daily usage in an hour)/1000 x 30) kWh month

Monthly Electricity Cost = Monthly Electricity Usage x Energy charges per kWh in USD

In the case of Honeywell 17000-S, energy consumption is 80 Watts(rated power). If you use this machine continuously for almost 12 hours, then multiply 80 by 12 and divide by 1000watts. Multiply the remaining figure by 30 for the monthly this way, monthly power utilization will find out.   = 80*12/1000=0.96*30=28.8 KWatts per month

To find out monthly electricity cost multiply monthly consumption by the unit cost of electricity. (Suppose if unit cost is $3.5) =28.8*3.5=100.8 cents/kWh per month. If you want to go for the best choice then you should check Levoit LV H 132.

5-Noise Level:



Noise and sound levels of a purifier are calculated in decibels (dB).All purifiers have reasonable sound, especially when compared with refrigerator or window AC. The quietest air purifiers fall in the range of dB rating of 15-35 at the low fan speed, whereas moderate ones in the range of 35 to 55 and the loudest purifiers in the range of 55 to 75 dB and above this range. Here in case of  Honeywell 17000-S noise level is 47dB at the lowest speed and 58.5dB at highest speed. So this purifier falls to near normal conversation range/slight noisy sound according to the below data. if you want to enjoy quiet purifier, you should go to Levoit LV H 132(36dB at lowest speed).

The following comparison will be effective for your understanding and good conception;

  • Decibel(dB)                      Sound equivalent
  • 0dB                                     Normal hearing threshold
  • 30dB                                  Library talking/whispering
  • 60dB                                  Normal conversation/slight noisy
