We recommend the Honeywell HPA300 Air Purifier because it provides a high level of ozone-free filtration over a substantial area, and has several useful features. When it comes to cleaning the air of medium to large sized rooms, the HPA300 was the only reputable air purifier we found that does not use an ionizer or UV sanitizer (both technologies produce ozone).
- This purifier uses a True HEPA filter which filters 99.97 percent of particles larger than 0.3 microns. This means it can catch larger particles like pet dander and dust as well as fine particles like smoke.
- It covers areas up to 465 square feet which should be able to cover the average living room or a large bedroom.
- The control panel serves up several cool features. You can activate a two, four, or eight hour timer, dim the panel lights at bedtime, and see if your pre-filter or main filter needs to be replaced. You can also set the fan speed to Germ, General Clean, Allergen, or Turbo.
- Users generally report that this air purifier is quiet on most settings. On Turbo, however, you will definitely notice the sound. Most people use this powerful level for a quick air change.
- There's no air intake or outtake in the back, so you can put this purifier against the wall.
What Could Be Better
- This air purifier's aesthetic design and build quality did not impress us. The thick plastic connecting on thin hinges makes us uneasy, but we feel better knowing you have five years of warranty protection.
- Some Amazon reviewers thought it was heavy at 21 pounds. If you find this to be heavy, it can limit your ability to move it around your home.
Warranty and Customer Support
Honeywell's customer support is responsive, but rigid in the ways they are helpful. They do, however, offer a five-year limited warranty.
