What are we looking at?
The Honeywell air purifier is a premium air purifier in the higher pricing tier. This air purifier offers a 3 stage filtration process including ioniser and inbuilt air quality sensor to maximize efficiency. The filtration stages included with this device are as follows; Preliminary Filter, Carbon Activated Filter and True HEPA Filter. If you would like to learn more about these different types of filters, check out of filter guide here!
How loud is it?
The Honeywell air purifier comes with an ultra-silent mode designed for night use. When this mode is selected the fan speed is set to minimum and the noise levels are very low. During this mode, the air purifier would not disturb the user during the night.
There are 4 different fan speeds to choose from which are as follows; sleep, germ, general and allergens. Each increment up this scale increases the fan speed and therefore the noise of the air purifier. We would recommend that the highest setting, allergens, is to be used when maximum filtration is needed only as it is quite audible.
Being an upright, medium-sized air purifier which measures 53 x 33 x 22cm, the Honeywell air purifier is slightly smaller than the Pro Breeze and Philips AC3256/60, however, larger than the Levoit LM-H132. It is certain that the Honeywell air purifier will easily fit in any living room, bedroom or office spaces.
The user interface takes advantage of touch-sensitive buttons which are located at the top of the machine, making it very user-friendly. Blue lights indicate which functions are currently running giving a clear visual display.
It also comes with an inbuilt air quality monitor which displays air quality through a traffic light type system. There are three colour indications, blue is good quality air, amber is fair quality air and red indicates the air quality is poor. This is a nice feature that we expect to see on a premium air purifier.
Although there are no specific room size measurements given by Honeywell, on the box it states that is can be used in “large” rooms. We’ve estimated that to be at least 50m2 or more. For a premium air purifier in this price range, it is expected that it can perform in larger spaces than that of it’s cheaper competitors. We’ve contacted Honeywell to obtain room coverage data and are waiting a response.
Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR)
The Honeywell air purifier has a very respectable CADR of 187m3/hour and Honeywell state that this machine will clean the air 5x per hour (to find out about CADR, check out our guide here). The CADR is comparable to that of the Pro Breeze machine, however, the prices are miles apart. The Honeywell air purifier, however, has a 3 year warranty and are a well-trusted brand within this industry. With the benefit of an in-built air quality sensor that dispays air quality data with a traffic light system, we believe the price is justified.
