Honeywell HPA-150 Quick Review

The third consecutive tower air purifier review from the list. Honeywell HPA-150 is the most stand out air purifier among the bunch with eye-catching exterior and excellent reliability. Powered by Honeywell own odor reducing pre-filter and HEPA filter, will this bigger, better and much improved true HEPA tower allergen remover deserve the premium price upgrade to challenge standard size/ console air purifier?

Unlike other conventional tower air purifier, Honeywell HPA150 is stylishly shaped with almost zero edges. Honeywell HPA150 is not a compact tower air purifier despite its sleek round shape. Similar story with its weight as moving this Honeywell true HEPA tower allergen remover is slightly troublesome compare with other tower air purifier. Fanspeed control dial knob is located at the usual top spot; surrounding air vents housing odor pre-fitler and HEPA filter are located at the lower body part. On whole Honeywell HPA150 is well fitted, durable and stable with a assuring 5 years warranty.

Airflow performance and applicable area

With a more expensive price tag and better filters than other tower air purifier, one would expect Honeywell HPA150 equipped with a wider purifying applicable area. Unfortunately it doesn’t. The applicable area is same as the rest at 16 m2 (169 sq. ft.). Airflow is marginally better with Honeywell HPA150 CADR at 125 cfm dust free, 130 cfm pollen free and 10 cfm smoke free. The power consumption is medium to low despite the lack of Energy Star rating. Noise level is not at an satisfactory level on 2 to 3 speed.

Final thoughts on Honeywell HPA150

Without any additional new features or even better overall purifying, Honeywell HPA150 is still the same old reliable Honeywell air purifier despite the higher price tag. The lack of air quality sensor, customizable timer and digital display screen will be a miss, but it is understandable as all this features will add-up to the size, weight and the most importantly pricing of the air purifier. If you need an efficient tower air purifier that can also plays a part as a home décor, consider the replacement version Honeywell HPA160.

Honeywell HPA-150 3-stage filtration and 170 sq. ft. purifying applicable area is magnificent when stand up against allergens, irritants, bacteria. It is very effective on common airborne pollutants notably dust, pet hair. Nonetheless against small scale pollutants, Honeywell HPA-150 3 speed airflow delivery rate + HRF-H1 Filter H True HEPA is fine at clearing away mold, spores, mildew, pollen, germs, dust mites and pet dander.  On odors, smokes and fumes, Honeywell HPA-150 filtration is weak in tackling cooking odors, radon, ammonia chemicals, VOCs, tobacco and cigarette smokes.

In conclusion......

  • Sleek tower design that takes up very little space.
  • Premium carbon pre-filter.
  • Uses True HEPA filter rather than HEPA type filter.
  • Impressive 5 years warranty.
  • Discontinued model (replace by Honeywell HPA160).
