When to Replace Filters
RESET THE FILTER MONITOR ONCE EACH FILTER HAS BEEN REPLACED.
See "Filter Check/Reset Monitors" section for further details.
For model 17250 and 17450 series, after replacing the CPZ™ filter, use the
enclosed CPZ™ filter reminder label to indicate the next time the filter is to be
replaced (approximately every six months).
CAUTION: Do not attempt to wash either the activated carbon pre-filter, the HEPA
filter or the CPZ
With proper maintenance, your Honeywell air cleaner is designed to provide years of
high efficiency air cleaning. Your Honeywell air cleaner contains two filters: one activated
carbon pre-filter and one primary HEPA filter. Models 17250 and 17450 contains three
filters: one activated carbon pre-filter, one primary HEPA filter, and a CPZ
The activated carbon pre-filter captures lint and other large particles and helps protect
the HEPA filter. It also helps reduce common household odors. The pre-filter should be
replaced at least every 3 months. You may need to replace the pre-filter more often if the
unit is used in a smoking environment or if unpleasant odors persist. We DO NOT
recommend operating the air cleaner without the activated carbon pre-filter or without
following the filter replacement guidelines.
The primary HEPA filter should remain effective for 1 to 3 years, depending upon the
environment in which the air cleaner is operating. Honyewell recommends changing the
HEPA filter based upon operation conditions-every 3 years for light usage, 2 years for
normal usage and 1 year for heavy usage.
Filter Cartridge should be replaced at least every 6 months. Filter life depends
upon condition of use.
Our recommendations regarding filter replacement intervals are intended as guidelines
only. Life expectancy of any filter media is dependent on the concentration of the
contaminants to which the system is exposed. If there are sources of large amounts of
contaminant generation (such as woodworking or heavy smoking) the useful life of the
filter media in your air cleaner may be reduced.
Whenever the air resistance of the HEPA filter becomes excessive due to the amount of
contaminants it has captured, the air volume output will begin to reduce and the sound
level of the air cleaner will increase somewhat. A completely blocked filter will cause a
loud rumbling sound and almost no airflow.
