Honeywell 50250-S

The indoor air can sometimes be as polluted as the outdoor air because of all the irritants and impurities that we create and bring inside our homes. Those who are aware of this aspect are looking for ways to minimize the level of impurities in the air at home with the help of an air purifier, such as Honeywell 50250-S. The large filter and the high power make it great for large rooms, so one device can be enough for purifying the air in a large space. To make this item more affordable for you, the manufacturer has lowered the price from $199 to $179 and even $139, depending on where you purchase it from.

Technical specifications

It features the patented 360-degree airflow technology that ensures the proper air absorption and circulation that makes the device efficient regardless of where you place it in the room. Using this type of technology makes the air circulation more efficient on any of the 3-speed levels of the unit.
Perhaps the most important aspect of an air filter is the AHAM certification, which is strongly connected to the Clean Air Delivery Rate that determines the performance of the unit. The higher the number, the higher the efficiency and the Honeywell 50250-S speaks well for itself with the 250 CFM for smoke, 250 CFM for dust, and another 250 CFM for pollen. Due to the high CFM rate, it can easily handle rooms up to 400 sq ft in size.

As for noise, you must know that this device is rather noisy, so if you have a problem with that, you will have to think about it thoroughly. On the highest speed, it makes an annoying noise that can be disturbing, but it minimizes as you choose a lower speed. There is a major drawback regarding its energy consumption, which is the lack of an Energy Star rating that would make it more energy-efficient. This doesn’t mean that it will become the highest consumer in your house, but combined with the lack of an auto shut off feature or a standby feature, it could reach 200 watts at the high speed.

Performance

The true HEPA filter helps it eliminate almost 100% of the impurities existing in the breathing air, including dust mites, dander, and mold spores, which benefits people who suffer from allergies and asthma, as well as small children who are prone to respiratory diseases. Some of the performance features are:

  • The carbon activated pre-filter makes it even more efficient as it increases the range of pollutants it retains
  • Extra filter protects the HEPA filter from getting filled with lint and fur, so it will last longer. Also, the fact that you can vacuum it will help it stay in a perfect state for the next few years
  • The high CMF prove the efficiency and reliability of this unit and makes it a great aid in keeping a clean and safe house

Design

When you decide you want to purchase the 50250-S, you have to acknowledge that this is a large unit measuring 18 by 19 inches and weighing 21 pounds, so you have to make sure you have the room for it. It’s a portable device but doesn’t come with rolling casters, so you will have to lift it when you need to move it in another room. It’s a round-shaped device and it is available in a white solid plastic finish with the control knobs and a handle located on the top. The Honeywell 50250-S is built using the SurroundSeal Technology that helps minimize air leaks in the construction and ensures that the air passes through the filter in order to have all the impurities retained.

Convenience features

Using this purifier is very easy since it doesn’t come with a variety of features, limiting the operating to filtering the air on numerous speeds. There are no additional options like a standby mode or an auto mode and all you have to do is rotate the knob to the desired speed. Additional convenience features are:

  • The manufacturer tried to minimize this drawback by adding the Intelli-Check™ Electronic Filter Indicator that tells you when it’s time to change or clean your filters
  • The fact that you can choose from 3 speeds lets you customize the air purifying process according to the size of the room and the level that is comfortable for you
  • Having a changeable filter makes it more cumbersome than other models that come with a permanent filter

Warranty and support

It comes with a 5-year limited warranty that offers peace of mind by assuring you that your device will be repaired or replaced free of charge. This filter can be vacuum from time to time and it’s recommended that you change it once every 3 years. Moreover, the manufacturer provides customer support via email and phone and a wide range of filters and accessories at the best prices.
