Product Description

Product Description

Pollutants

Because you can’t see, feel or taste the air in your home, you might not realise that it may not be clean. Unless you suffer from an allergy, you probably don’t even think about the air you breathe. The fact is, indoor air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air, even in the world’s largest and most heavily industrialised cities (source: US Environmental Protection Agency).

Research indicates that people spend approximately 90 per cent of their time indoors, which means that exposure to indoor air pollution can be a serious risk. Today, one in three people suffers from an allergy. The New England Journal of Medicine recently published research that found air pollution to be statistically linked to increased health problems (source: “Air Pollution and Health – Good News and Bad”, by C. Arden Pope, III, PhD).

Particles less than 10 microns, including simple dust, can pass through the nose and throat and go directly into the lungs. Many people may only notice irritation to their eyes, nose and throat. The air that we breathe every day indoors may contain harmful gases and particles, including germs, viruses, dust, bacteria, pollen, mould spores, animal dander, smog, tobacco, smoke and soot.

Use a portable air purifier in the rooms where you spend the most time, such as the living room or bedroom. By filtering out air pollutants, these devices help improve air quality through the filters, and reduces unpleasant odours such as tobacco smoke and cooking smells.

Dry Air

There is no cure for the common cold. And we get used to putting up with dry skin, itchy eyes and a scratchy throat. But moist indoor air can help ease these minor afflictions. That’s where humidifiers come in. They help create a comfortable atmosphere in your home by adding moisture into the air. This alleviates minor discomfort and can help your respiratory system expel germs from the body. Keeping a humidifier on while you sleep can also help your skin stay fresh looking, especially in the winter. • It’s good for you and your family. It reduces discomfort by moisturising airway passages, alleviates dry air symptoms—dry skin and itchy eyes—and helps relieve a scratchy throat and dry nose. • It’s good for your home.

It reduces static electricity and helps protect furniture. By using a humidifier to maintain the right amount of moisture in your home, you can help keep your entire family healthy throughout the winter. Humidity levels usually go down significantly in the winter time when the air outside is cold.

The relative humidity in your home should be between 40 per cent and 60 per cent. This range is ideal for minimising physical discomfort and adverse health effects related to dry air.

It is possible to switch the humidifier off if the humidity level is okay (levels are displayed on the control panel) and use the air purifier only. 1. Air is drawn into the machine with a fan 2. Superior performance filter draws in and locks impurities 3. Rotating fan causes a disc to spin 4. The disc rotates in the water. Air is drawn in and washed by the water 5. Purified air at optimum humidity is returned to the room . You decide if you want to clean the air, humidify it – or both. Easy to use with set and forget continuous mode, dishwasher safe parts and a clear control panel.

There is also an optional anti – odours filter that can help neutralise unpleasant smells. This stylish machine is the ideal solution for clean air at a healthy humidity level and comes with three-year guarantee.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My first impressions of this product were formed during the unpacking process. There is a lot of packaging material! The manual in my opinion is also rather poor as for unpacking all it shows is a picture of a person taking the product out of the box. It does not show where all the pieces of packaging and transportation material you need to remove are located, and I almost missed a couple of pieces of polystyrene that were inside the machine.

My next comment is that this is quite a large device. It isn't huge, but it is still quite large at 40 x 40 x 30cm. It is not unattractive though, which is fortunate as the manual says it needs to have three feet of clearance at both sides, so this is not something you can hide away in a corner.

The next issue was inserting the odour filter. The filter pack is at the top of the device behind the water reservoir and it required a lot more force to remove than I was really comfortable with. It felt like the plastic was going to break. It didn't break but did release with quite a loud crack. Putting the odour filter into the filter cartridge was also rather fiddly and again I thought I was going to break the plastic clips that hold the filters in place.

Filling the water reservoir was the next issue. The water reservoir is simple to remove from the side of the machine and the filler cap is also easy to open. The water reservoir is quite large and once filled under the tap it becomes quite heavy and you need two hands to hold it and you don't have a spare hand to turn the tap off!

I discovered another problem when I decided to try the air cleaner in my bedroom. If you try and move the machine when the tray is full of water, it splashes out all over the place!

If your looking for a humidifier in the first place this is NOT what you want.
After using for a day there was no perceivable change in humidity whatsoever. This observation is dully confirmed by the fact that overnight the level of water in the tank has not changed visibly.
Hard to judge the air purification quality (personally felt no improvement) but the humidity function is obviously not there.
On a side not the build quality is really cheep as noted in other reviews and nothing close to what you would expect for that price. Hard to move the device without spilling water.
The noise level is acceptable only at low fan level (even then it is clearly distinguishable) and much above what the manufacturer claims on normal and high fan.
Very disappointed as was looking for a humidifier which this product clearly is not. Returned for a refund after a day.

Living in central London my eyes suffer because of the dry air of a centrally heated flat and the dust from various building projects and road traffic in my area. (The second I leave town, my eyes are fine, so alas this is an environmental issue.)
I have two air filter machines. My old one, which is also an ioniser, is brilliant but requires an air filter replacement - and the filter is no longer supplied. It's also quite noisy. This air purifier/humidifier is extremely quiet and as the advantage that its parts are washable so there's no need to go out and buy new filters.
My only slight complaint, design wise is that the water tank does not clip on - it's tricky to move when filled up with water. Therefore, either put it on a wheeled plant pot type trolley, or think carefully wher you site it.

The Honeywell HAW501E is a 2-in-1 Air Cleaner and Humidifier (the opposite of a dehumidifier). The first thing you notice about the product is the sheer size of this big grey bulky beast. It's pretty darn big...with a tremendous amount of protective packaging accompanying it.

Setting the thing up for the first time was pretty easy. Ok, so the instructions that come along with it are virtually no help whatsoever. The manual spends more time dilly-dallying with all the usually elf-n-safety palaver that we all skip over, than it does on actually how to use the darn machine! Nevertheless, it's mostly self-explanatory to get started with.

Just fill up the side compartment with water from the tap (the whole compartment just lifts off the main body, so it's quick & easy to do this). Once the side compartment's been secured back in place, most of the water will drain down into the main base of the unit, where it will be used to pump the added H2O into the air (as is the main role of a humidifier).

A quick note at this stage! Once you've added the water, if you happen to try moving the unit, or give it a reasonably hefty knock, expect water to slosh out and onto the floor. We tried moving it to another spot in the room after filling it with water and were somewhat surprised to see water spilling out everywhere!

Ok, so next you need to add the air purifying filter malarkey. Just slot that badboy into the tray on the main unit, and away you go. From here, it's all very simple to use. The display on the front shows the strength of the 'air cleaning' fan as well as the different humidity setting you can adjust it to. There's also a simple 'reset' button to set the unit back to the standard 'everyday' setting. It's as simple as that.
