The Doctor's Choice in Air Purification - These new ENERGY STAR® qualified air purifiers feature sleek design, intuitive top controls, and quieter operation

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Airborne allergens, mold spores and even odors are no match for the new Honeywell True HEPA Air Purifiers. Available just in time for fall allergy season, the new line provides trusted HEPA air filtration from the #1 brand according to allergists who recommend an air purifier brand. New, convenient design features include intuitive LED easy-tap, touch sensitive controls, multiple cleaning levels for germs, allergens, and general cleaning, and a "Turbo" setting in select models for faster cleaning and odor reduction. Representing the gold standard in air cleaning and convenience, the new Honeywell air purifiers are available in a variety of sizes perfect for any room in the house.

"Air within the home can host a multitude of allergens and airborne particles that many consumers don't even know are there," says Dr. Ted Myatt, ScD, a microbiologist and expert in indoor air quality with Environmental Health & Engineering and the University of Rhode Island. "Homeowners concerned about their indoor air should consider dual filtration systems like the Honeywell True HEPA room air cleaner models, which meet standards of efficiency set by the United States Department of Energy.  The HEPA filters effectively help capture airborne pollen, such as grass, tree and other pollen, as well as dust, smoke, pet fur/dander, mold spores, bacteria and viruses from the air passing through them.  The pre-filter also absorbs odors and volatile organic compounds that result from cleaning supplies, new carpet, paint, and some types of furniture."

Honeywell True HEPA models are available at retail stores, and each is ENERGY STAR®[i] qualified.  Homeowners that purchase these models may be eligible for utility rebates and should check with their local electric providers.
