Honeywell 50250 HEPA Air Purifier
As one of the largest and most popular air purifiers in the Honeywell air purifier line, the Honeywell 50250 HEPA air purifier is an inexpensive, but very effective air cleaner. With a large, true HEPA filter and activated carbon pre-filter, the 50250 captures submicron particles down to 0.3 microns in size while providing a basic level of smoke and odor control. For mild to moderate particle allergies, this HEPA air purifier will efficiently trap dust mite allergen, mold spores, pet dander, and other common particle allergens.
The long-lasting HEPA filter reduces your overall maintenance costs while a 360° intake/outflow promotes even circulation of purified air throughout your home. The Intelli-Check electronic filter indicator reminds you when to clean the HEPA filter and when to replace the carbon pre-filter. The Honeywell 50250 is effective for larger rooms up to 390 sq. ft. and is AHAM Verified.
- True HEPA Filter captures at least 99.97% of mold spores, pet dander, dust mite allergen, pollen, and other airborne particles at 0.3 microns or larger.
- Designed to be vacuumed only twice a year, the long-lasting HEPA Filter eliminates the need for monthly filter replacement.
- Honeywell's glass-fiber HEPA filters are not treated with any chemicals.
- An activated carbon pre-filter extends the life of the HEPA filter and has millions of tiny pores that trap unwanted odors and vapors.
- Three different cleaning power levels.
- Patented 360° intake and discharge of air ensures maximum air flow from anywhere in the room.
- Patented technology electronically monitors the pre-filter and HEPA filter usage. It lets you know when its time to change the filters, so you don't have to worry about it.
- Helps to reduce airborne bacteria and viruses.
- Sleep mode feature for quiet operation.
- Top handle grip make the lightweight air purifier easy to lift and carry.
- Efficient in a room up to 375 square feet (for the Honeywell 50250 Enviracaire air purifier) or 300 square feet (for the Honeywell 50200 Enviracaire air purifier).
- Noisy & Bulky!
this product is pretty loud and bulky. I have had less allergies in the past week but I am still in the "testing stage". Trying to give it my final thoughts. So far so good... I leave it running all day and turn it off when I am home.
- Better Nights Sleep
My husband purchased the Honeywell Air Purifier, he thought it might help with my breathing. I have a lung condition that causes me to have a lot of conjestion. Since the Air Purifier has been running in our bedroom I have been able to sleep better with very little conjestion. I do not wake up during the night with difficulty clearing my throat or breathing. I am very happy my husband found this product.
- Great filter with a great price!
We bought this filter for the living room and it works like a charm. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is becasue it is a little loud, but if you like the "white" noise, then you may like it. When it is on, the noise didn't bother us, but it may bother some if it is in your room at night. I also bought this unit becasue I don't have to spend money on replacing the filters. All you do is vacuum them about every 6 months. Great unit!

I purchased this mainly because I have an asthmatic cat, Buddy, but I also suffer from allergys can't be from the cat LOL. The Honeywell 50250 seems to be helping as I can cut down his prednislone plus my nose is clear in the morning and I do not have to use my prescription nasal spray. It's loud on high, medium is tolerable and I leave it on low at night and it's no problem. I like that it's portable but a bit large. I'll take it though because of the low cost and cleanable HEPA filter. Seems to be a good unit and it's working! Not sure yet about the energy consumption yet.
- Great Air Purifier
This air purifier is fantastic, I am a long time servere allergy sufferer both indoor and outdoor allergies, and also have Asthma. I have this unit in my living room and it works fantastic, it is great with collecting dust,and pet hair i have no more problems with being stuffy all the time it makes the air feel clean like being outside. I have had over six different ones over the years and by far this one is the best. It is a little on the larger side then what i would have liked but this is minor for the job it does. I would highly recommened this unit. And also you only change the pre filter once every 3-6 months and they are only around 12.00 dollars and the hepa you vacum every one to 2 years so right there you are also saving money compared to other air purifiers.
The Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier is exactly what I was looking for and more! I have been struggling with dog allergies for the past 6 years. Sadly enough, my parents aren't too caring and choose the dogs health over mine. They refuse to get rid of the dog so I have had to suffer through it for a while. I just recently took the initiative to solve my constant low quality sleep, itchy eyes, and intense arguments with my parents. I ran across AchooAllergy when looking for solutions to getting rid of my suffering. The Honeywell air purifier caught my eye and I compared AchooAllergy's price to other website prices and I found that AchooAllergy sold the purifier for 70 dollars less than the other sites! Needless to say, I purchased the purifier without hesitation. Its been in my room for about two weeks and I can easily say that the runny nose, itchy eyes, and quarrels with my mom... no longer exist. I couldn't be happier with how the purifier has made my life easier in a variety of ways. I absolutely love being home now and I have no reason to try and spend the night at my friends house where there are no animals. If you're an allergy sufferer. This purifier is exactly what your looking for.
- Large Room, Large Problem
I have dogs that come into the bedroom, which is a large room about 17 x 28 ft. Until I set up the HEPA filtering machine in the room, I had not realized how poorly I was sleeping and breathing! I feel far more refreshed when I wake now an am not getting up as many times during the night. The product is well worth the money.
- Air purifier + white noise machine
We are very glad to get this machine, works very good with the smoking from our neighbors, cleans the air good. The only thing it doesn't clean that much is the cooking odor but, we just open the window and turn on the fans for a few minutes and voila, that's it the rest is cleaned by the machine. Also is a good white noise machine for sleeping in the medium speed or even the low speed. We love this machine. Plus we are cleaning less with the mop the house. The light the machine has is nice when you wake up to go to the bathroom, just don't look it at directly.
- Great Deal
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box to find installation took me about 2 minutes. I put it in my bedroom and my family was asking how come my room i'm a smoker smelled like moutain air. I just pointed to the purifier. I think we will be getting 1 more to cover the den and my sisters room. Great deal and a superb product!!!!
- Great air purifier
I recently moved from a large home to a small temporary apartment with my husband and large dog. The allergens tend to be more prevalent when confined to a small space so I had to pull out all the stops. Even though our dog is an indoor dog, the smell of her and her bedding are definitely more noticeable in this small place. I did not consider buying an air purifier to reduce smell but this has been an unexpected benefit. This is the first purifier I have ever owned. I was skeptical before purchasing the 50250 because of other reviews regarding the noise factor. But the benefits outweigh any cons. After just a few days with it working in our main room, both allergens and odor have been reduced. I am very satisfied with the purchase. Regarding the noise of the machine - it is definitely more than expected even on the lowest setting but we created a work around. We leave it in the main room during the day along with the dog on medium. When we return at the end of the day, we either move it to the bedroom to allow it to cleanse the air prior to us going to bed or just leave it in the same room with us and turn it down. It doesn't bother us and we can hear the TV over the unit. We have even slept with it in our bedroom on the lowest setting and it was fine. Tuned out all of the other usual noise one may hear during apartment living. We live by the ocean so are already used to a natural noise machine at night waves crashing. This machine is very reasonably priced and as long as you keep it confined to the amount of square footage it is designed to cover, works like a charm. The air smells fresher when we walk in the door.

Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier
The Honeywell series of air purifiers are an economical choice that offer a range of capacities suited to meet the needs of most rooms in the average household. Offering excellent basic filtration with few frills, these units provide efficiency without busting your budget.
What I like about the Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier
Like all of the units in this line, the 50250 is both compact and light. It is cylindrical in shape and draws air in from a 360° radius. A handle on top makes these units easy to move, and because of their size, they will fit, unobtrusively, just about anywhere in the home.
They are simple and convenient to use and maintain. With a basic three speed control, Intelli-Check technology, sleep mode, and a long-lasting HEPA Filter, the 50250 and 50200 provide all the fundamentals of air filtration with no needless features. The Intelli-Check will keep you informed as to the performance of the filter and when each needs to be changed. The pre-filter generally needs to be changed once every three months. Simply unscrew the bottom, slide the HEPA filter out, unwrap the old pre-filter, then wrap the new one around the HEPA and reassemble. The HEPA filter can be cleaned and should last 3 years.
Generally speaking, the more odors, smoke, and chemical vapors you want to remove, the more carbon you want in the filter. While the Honeywell 50250 air purifier has only a prefilter coated with activated carbon, as long as you change out the filter every three months, the odor removal qualities of this filter is surprisingly robust. The prefilter itself will continue to trap large, visible particles long after three months of use, but after this time, the carbon in the filter can no longer adsorb any more odors, chemical vapors, or smoke.What I did not like about the Honeywell 50250 Air Purifier
All of the models in this line are a bit noisy. On low speed the noise is hardly noticeable, but at higher speeds the volume increases a good deal.
Overall, whether you choose any of the units in this series, you will be getting an air purifier that is inexpensive and low maintenance but one that offers fine results. Any of these units would work well for environments with low to medium levels of contaminants, including cigarette smoke, pollen, dust or pet dander. Those concerned with VOCs, high levels of pollutants, or someone with multiple pets should likely consider a different model.
