Honeywell QuietClean Air Purifier #Review
Captures 99% of Allergens and Pollutants
The Honeywell QuietClean Tower Air Purifier gives you 99% cleaner air in minutes! Most household items such as soaps, detergents, perfumes, and cleaning supplies we use on a daily basis produce airborne chemicals that can linger in the home. The harmful chemicals produced from these are emitted into the air as gases, called volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The ironic things is, we are using these items to be cleaner and healthier, while they are in reality harming us.

Did you know that studies have shown that there could be up to 300 different VOCs found in indoor air? The makers of Honeywell Air Purifiers have partnered with a team of environmental health scientists to release a list of the top 10 most common VOCs found in America. Using their list, I did a mini audit of our home to see what pollutants we have been unknowingly breathing in. I was surprised to find that we have 5 of the Top 10 harmful VOCs in our home!
But, wait. There is good news! The Honeywell QuietClean Tower Air Purifier captures odors and VOCs through a carbon filter that cleans the air you breathe. This Air Purifier cleans mold spores, cooking smoke, pet hair, pollen, dust, and tobacco smoke. It features permanent filtration and circulates the room air 5x per hour. Honeywell QuietClean Tower comes with a permanent filter and a 3 month disposable filter. The permanent filter can be easily rinsed in clean water, saving money on replacement filters.
The QuietClean Tower has 3 clean air levels with an oscillation feature, filter check and dimmer switch. It is energy star rated and recommended for medium to large rooms. The name does it justice, because it is very quiet. I have to look at it to see if it’s on or off sometimes!
The carry handle makes it easy to transport. This fall our family has struggled with seasonal allergies. It is nice to be able to pick up the unit and move it from room to room.
The makers of Honeywell suggest a number of simple steps that can be taken to help reduce VOCs in your home. Here are a few suggestions.
- Choose products that release fewer VOCs, such as organic alternatives.
- Use a portable air purifier that includes a carbon filter as part of the filtration process, helping to adsorb VOCs.
- Increase ventilation, particularly when products containing chemicals are being used.
