Design and build quality

Not the biggest and lightest for its class, Honeywell HPA204 is scaled-down at 45 x 47.9 x 25.5 cm (17.7 x 18.9 x 10 in). Moving this Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover is easy as the body is short but would require both hands as the weight already exceeded the 5 kg benchmark (6.3 kg or 13.9 lbs to be exact). The whole configuration is very Honeywell like with easy tap controls at top and air vent that includes pre-filter/ HEPA filter right below. Handles are located on both sides of the air purifier for easy carrying. Available in conventional white, Honeywell HPA204 has the classic example of an air purifier looks that emphasis on functionality and practicality.

Airflow performance, CADR and applicable area

Based on the size of Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover HPA204, we would not expect anything more than average in its airflow purifying performance. How wrong we were. Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover surprise us with its magnificent 29 m2 (310 sq. ft.). Great at covering a wide range of allergens, bacteria, viruses, chemicals and odors. With the 4 speed cleaning mode, Honeywell HPA204 CADR is rated at 190 cfm for dust, 180 cfm for pollen and 200 cfm for smoke. No surprise though with its power consumption and noise level as it is standard.
