Living in an area that has a lot of pollen issues, and adding to it the three cats that we have in the house, having an air purifier in the house is just about a requirement.  In fact, we have two in the house right now, with one being the **Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier**.  The Honeywell does a great job at cleaning up the air with very little fuss, and it has the ability to really improve the air quality for your house and those that live in it.  In fact, the Honeywell 50250 has a filter that removes 99.7% of all particles in the air that come through it.  You want to talk about cleaning up the air; being able to remove that high a number of particles consisting of bacteria and germs, and you are potentially talking about saving yourself or your family from a number of colds during the year.  It's a pretty good starting point when thinking about getting an air purifier, but the benefits of this Honeywell don't stop there.The Honeywell is very easy to set up when you pop it out of the box, with a simple check to make sure that the filter is hooked up correctly, and a wide area to place the air purifier, you are ready to plug it in.  They advertise that the purifier can be used to clean up the air in very large areas, and we have it set up in our great room in order to get the biggest benefit from it.  This is the area where our cats spend the most time, so a lot of the cat hair and dander is cleaned out of the air through the Honeywell.  This is a really good thing, because it can enable someone with pet allergies to live in the house when you have a machine like this working, because it takes many of the different allergens right out of the air.  It is advertised to work on removing smells from tobacco smoke, cooking, pets and plants.  When the HEPA filter or Pre filter requires changing or cleaning, the device has a warning light to let you know it is time.One of the best features of this Honeywell Air Purifier, is that it has a patented 360-degree air intake and discharge for purifying those large rooms and areas of your home.  This means that when you put it in the center of your room, it is taking air from the four corners at an equal rate, and sending it back out into all of the areas as well.  The Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier also has 3 speeds with which it operates, and a monitor that lets you know when it is time to change the filter.  It runs on basic electricity, so plugging it into the wall will get you the necessary power to run it on even the highest of speeds.  When it comes time to actually clean the device, that is an easy process as well, denoted in the instruction manual to help you finish it in just a few quick steps.  Using this Honeywell is simply a breeze, and the device does just about everything for the user, rather than making them try to figure out an in-depth process.The Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier is one of those air cleaners that is not only worth the price, but it does the job so well, that you start to take it for granted after a few weeks of use.  It weighs about 20 pounds, so it isn't something you will want to move all that often, but not too heavy as to dissuade you if you so choose.  It should always be placed on the floor, as there is a slight vibration to the device when you are using it, so you don't want it on a surface that will tip over if moved too often.  On its highest setting, you will surely notice the sound, so it isn't something you want to run at full-throttle in a room where you are sleeping, but it works great in any size room of your house.  It could serve as nice white-noise though, if you live in a bustling city.  Outside of that little negative facet, this is really the perfect device for any pet owner or sufferer of allergies, and I highly recommend giving the Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier a look if you are in the market.

The honeywell air purifier is good at cleaning the air, but makes alot of  noise. You have to take it apart to clean the filter.The filter you have to wash and let dry before you put it back in the machine.The honeywell air purifier is really big and takes up alot of space and stands out to much, wish it was more slimmer , but it does help with the dust in your house and if  you have a smoker in the house it does a good job of removing  the smoke in the air.  I do like the fact that it has a 360-degree intake, but make sure you do not get it to close to the wall. I like to set it at least a foot away from the wall or furniture to help get the full effect of cleaning the air. We keep it running all the time to help keep the air clean. The price of the honeywell air purifier was cheaper than alot of the air purifier we checked out. But it was worth it to keep the air cleanier and healthier for ourselves , but more important for our grandchildren and friends.

Large air purifier that does it's job

By 

from USA

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

The Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier 50250 is a large unit that can have a noticeable effect on large rooms. Some people may be put off by the large size, but smaller units are just not that effective. Since it circulates air very effectively, it can create a fan like effect, which may feel like a draft in colder areas. If you have allergies, this unit is very effective at eliminating air particulates that can cause irritation.

Ease of Maintenance
Cleaning or replacing the filter or pre-filter on this purifier is easy.

Dust/Allergen Removal
The air purifier has a HEPA filter, so it one of the best available.

Filter Availability
Filter replacements are readily available online, on sites such as Amazon.com, but may be harder to locate locally.

Durability
So far, so good, but we have only had the unit for about 2 months so far. It does run virtually all the time though, and has had no issues as of yet.

Effectiveness
When run continuously, the air is noticeably fresher and dust and particle free.

Design
Some people have complained about the indicator light bothering them, especially if it is in a bedroom at night. But turning the unit away or covering the light eliminates this problem. The unit is fairly loud on the high (more effective) setting, but it is white noise, so it does not interfere with sleep.

Great for pets, allergies, seasonal crap in the air, dust...

By 

from USA

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

My husband purchased the Honeywell HEPA Air Purifier quite some time ago, now, and it is still kicking! He had gotten it to help me out with my allergies and his asthma when he started buying parakeets to make his own flock. It is NOT loud, but you do hear some noise in the background; white noise tends to help us sleep, so this is perfect. We breathe better and amazed at how much it sucks up from the air. Cleaning it out is sort of fun when you see what COULD have been in your lungs.

Ease of Maintenance
It is easy to take apart, and a shop vac makes cleaning the filter off a breeze. Just be sure to clean it outside of your home. Keep the junk outside!

Dust/Allergen Removal
It doesn't just suck up dust and allergens, but it even sucks up parakeet down feathers! They create quite a bit of dust themselves, including seed husks everywhere, and the filter, when placed closer to their cage, takes care of a great deal of it. Very impressed!

Filter Availability
Filters are hard to come by around here, but the filter we have is cleaned regularly and hasn't needed to be changed, Just wish I would be able to find one in a store around here to have a back-up just in case it tears while cleaning it.

Durability
This HEPA filter has been through a lot of dust sucking and allergen abuse. It's still strong enough to keep pulling everything out of the air and making it better to breathe. Love it! Love it! LOVE IT!

Effectiveness
It's extremely effective in what it is supposed to do and more. It keeps the air cleaner in a decent sized room (115 sq foot approximately) with 15 parakeets and a sun conure. We couldn't have hoped for anything better.

Design
I adore the design! With it being round, I can put it under a round table in the center of the room or just keep it in the center when possible. It just seems right for it to be circular: all the dust AROUND the room meets in the center where it is held until further notice!

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

I have found this unit effective too a degree. If you have it on top of something higher up off of the floor it works much better. It does not seem too draw air down too the unit as well as up too it. So if you have a smoker in the home it isn't as good at clearing the air. It still is far better than nothing but not as effective as I would have hoped. As far as allergens, I have noticed a marked difference especially when I wake in the morings. My sinuses are clearer and less congested

Ease of Maintenance
It is fairly easy too service and clean, and only requires occasional care.

Dust/Allergen Removal
I saw a very noticeable difference with this unit

Filter Availability
Especially with the internet, there is nothing you can't get within 2 days

Durability
Have only had it for 4 months or so, but so far so good

Effectiveness
Removes just about everything, just make smokers go outside. They should be anyway.

Design
I think if the intake were on top of the unit it might be more effective

Amazing product that is just quite loud

By 

from Alpine, UT

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

Just got one of these Honeywell air purifiers from my brother-in-law. He and his wife have used one for a couple years now and claim it has improved their health dramatically. We’ve had ours now for about a month and here’s what I’ve noticed. First, our air is definitely cleaner. There are no odors and it seems more refreshing. Second, the purifier is really loud. But that’s fine because we use it in our bedroom and I like the background noise. Just know, it’s more than just a low hum. Lastly, I haven’t been sick since getting it. Could be coincidental. My wife has been sick, so it’s hard to say if this improves your health. But it definitely improves your air.

Durability
Because it has such a simple design, it's built to last.

Amazing product, very useful

By 

from USA

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

I was on the fence about this product, but I'm very happy I purchased it. Do yourself a favor a buy this product if you do - you will be doing your health a tremendous favor. The cost of an air purifier isn't usually cheap, but in time, it'll pay for itself, as in my experience, I've had to take less allergy medication while I use it. I used to have a ton of allergic reactions, and just simply breathing the air in my house became a sort of task. It is very quiet and you can sit it in an area out of the way so that it doesn't get in the way and tripped over. You occasionally have to replace the filters to ensure that the purifier continues to purify air, but it is relatively simple and not very expensive. It's quite easy to use, have a filter in, plug it in to a wall socket, and turn on the power, so you don't have to worry about complex instructions.

Competent Air Purifier 50250 by Honeywell

By 

from Plano, TX

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

I purchased this to replace an old, cheaply constructed model by Duracraft, which is so low-end apparently it does not even have an entry on Viewpoints. Honeywell lasts longer than the old Duracraft purifier, though the benefits less dramatic than a longer functional life. Both models take up lots of space - a problem in an already crowded and cramped bedroom. the spongey filter is easy to clean but leaves your model out of commission, when too much clogging require wet cleaning and ample drying time. The noise is negligiable for first four to five months, but gets noticeably loud to affect quieter, sleeping time if it is left on continuously without a rest or break for the motor. As for improving overall air quality, I find it acceptable as long as the rest of room is regularly vacuumed to reduce dust and mite.

Dust/Allergen Removal
Best allergen removal up to first 2 years. Thereafter I can't say I notice any difference!

Love mine and continue to use

By 

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about Honeywell Enviracaire HEPA Air Purifier:

We have a kitty, and he can produce a lot of fur being around 20 pounds. We bought 2 honeywells for different rooms of the house, and they have been life savers. They are very light, portable, and easy to change the filter. There is also a light on thr machine that lets you know when to change the filter so there is never any guesswork, I would refer this item to a friend in a heartbeat if you want quality at a good price.
