Honeywell has long been known as a manufacturer of high quality electrical appliances, and the HHT-090 tower air purifier has not let them down. In terms of design it doesn’t look unlike a stereo speaker, it’s sleek and takes up little space. Its job is simple, to remove particles in the air and at the same-time keep the air fresh in your room, and it seems to do so effectively.
One of the best things about the HHT-090 is how easy it is to maintain. The permanent HEPA filter just needs to be vacuumed and can easily be removed and replaced. You also have the benefit of a “clean filter” indicator, which means no guesswork. This design also means there are no additional costs after your initial purchase.
The HEPA filter itself is designed to remove particles as small as 2 microns and is up to 99% effective. It will remove allergy irritants such as cat dander, pollen, dust and mold spores. You also have the added benefit of an optional ionizer which will remove odors such as cooking smells and tobacco.
What We Liked
- Low Maintenance
This model from Honeywell does not need replacement filters. Instead, the manufacturer has made it possible to simply vacuum and replace them. Your unit is also fitted with a “clean filter” indicator.
- Quiet Low Speed Operation
With 3 speeds to choose from, this unit will work quietly at the lower speed levels. At top speed (changing the air in an average sized room every 12 minutes) the unit is clearly audible though.
- User Friendly Design
The Honeywell HHT-090 is a tower air purifier and does not look unlike a stereo speaker, which means it will suit almost any décor; neither will it take up much floor space.
- Cleaner Fresher Air
Equipped with a HEPA filter, this air purifier will remove up to 99% of airborne pollutants that can cause allergies. It also has an optional ionizer that eliminates pet, tobacco smoke and cooking smells.
What We Didn't Like
- Noise on High Setting
On the highest setting there have been complaints this unit is quite noisy. However because it’s so efficient after the initial use this level is rarely needed.
- White Dust
It has been reported the outside of the HHT-090 can become covered in a thin layer of white dust, but this is just testament to the fact it’s doing the job it’s designed for and the dust can easily be cleaned off.
Honeywell is a trusted brand across the world and they have lived up to their reputation with the HHT-090. There are few “bells and whistles” with this unit, but for those of you that want clean, fresh air with the minimal of fuss this unit is the perfect answer. It looks good with its sleek design and won’t take up much space. There are few models on the market in this price bracket that can beat the HHT-090.Review by AirReflect ©
