After significant emails from our blog readers we have decided to put together a blog post that reviews the top Honeywell air purifiers on the market today!
1. Honeywell 17000
Honeywell 17000 Permanent Pure HEPA QuietCare Air Purifier removes up to 99.4% of bacteria and germs in the air. This power house unit designed with dual filters to remove smoke, pollen, dust, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, and viruses plus eliminates household odors. Each filter has a button that blinks or shines steadily to show you when it’s time to remove the filter. This model covers medium to large rooms up to 168 square feet. While the unit is efficient in removing dust and odor from the room the unit can get loud on higher settings.
2. Honeywell HHT-145
If you like tower styled purifiers Honeywell HHT-145 HepaClean UV Antibacterial HEPA Tower 3-in-1 Air Purifier is one to consider. Unique ultraviolet technology reduces airborne germs, viruses, bacteria, fungi and mold spores. The HEPA true filter removes 99% of dust, pet dander, smoke, pollen and helps eliminate household odors. This powerful unit includes 12 cleaning power levels, up to an 18 hour auto shut off timer, ionizer and optional oscillation for better air circulation. Permanent filter with proper care never needs replacing. This unit covers large to medium size rooms up to 185 square feet. While this high tech model is successful in reducing pet odors and assisting with asthma the unit tends to have a cyclic humming sound and recurring problems with the filters.
3. Honeywell 50250
For large rooms up to 390 square feet look at the Honeywell 50250 Round Air Purifier. True HEPA filter removes 99.97% pollen, dust, smoke, mold spores, pet dander and household odors. Includes a 360 degree air flow, pre-carbon filter, filter change indicator and comes in 3 speeds. Unit is easy to set up, change filters which are not expensive however the unit is bulky and creates a “white noise” sound when left on higher settings.
4. Honeywell 18155
Honeywell 18155 SilentComfort Permanent designed with two types of filtrations systems: carbon pre-filter to eliminate household odors and the true HEAP filter that removes dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, germs, bacteria, mold spores and fungus. The model claims to purify 100% of germs and bacteria. The no-draft provides air cleaning without the cool air exhaust. This model is built for rooms up to 225 square feet. The air is fully processed every 12 minutes and the filter needs cleaning only twice a year. Works well for asthma, allergies and pet odors but unit is bulky and the higher speed settings have a “white noise.” Handbook does not correlate with design and is difficult to follow.
