Product Description

Permanent IFDAir Purifier with filter that is washable and vacuum-able & never needs replacement!

Amazon.com

To rid a room of unhealthy or irritating airborne particles such as dust, smoke, and mold, an air purifier can be indispensable. Manufacturer of a wide assortment of air treatment products, Honeywell combines HEPA and IFD (intense field dielectric) filtration methods in this germicidal electronic tower for effective cleansing. Energy-Star certified, the 60-watt purifier removes up to 99.97 percent of a room's air impurities for better breathing.

The air purifier best suits rooms 200 square feet in size. The user selects from the three operation speeds for purification or takes advantage of the 12-hour programmable timer. Air circulates silently through the machine up to four times an hour without any disruption to the room's natural air flow. The purifier traps impurities via filtration and ionization, releasing clean air into the room. While the IFD filter never need be replaced, the purifier illuminates an indicator light when cleaning is necessary. Users clean the filter by rinsing half a dozen times a year or they might choose to vacuum the IFD filter to clear debris. As with all electric appliances, read all information prior to using the purifier. The air purifier measures 19.37 by 15.39 by 14.21 inches and weighs 12.9 pounds. --Jessica Reuling

The filtration mechanism is the same however, so I thought my review might be helpful here.

This is the sound that I catch myself focusing on when I'm trying to sleep, since it stands out over the Brownian noise and the humming.
Oleg Kharitonov
I used some compressed air to clean up what i could, but there was still much built up dust/dirt that i could not get to.

Just thought this information would be useful to others. I run mine 24/7, so I measured the power consumption and calculated how much it costs to run a month. My electricity cost is 11 cents per kWh

Running on High 24/7 - 44kWh a month. $4.84 a month

Running on Med 24/7 - 27kWh a month. $2.97 a month

Running on Low 24/7 - 21kWh a month. $2.31 a month

I owned this unit for about 3 months before returning it.

Despite it is called a HEPA air purifier, it is not. HEPA is strictly defined as a filter which has a >99.97% capture rate of 0.3 micrometer particle. This model has an advertised capture rate of 98 or 99%. Although I have also seen a few websites quoting it has a 99.97% capture rate, I doubt it. That being said, a 99% capture rate is not much different than 99.97% for most households. The poor air seal is a much bigger concern. The holder for the IFD filter does not seal tightly to the IFD filter, and therefore air will pass around the filter. This purifier actually belong to the ionizing purifier family, not the tradition HEPA filter purifier family.

Mind you, it works fine and it is fairly easy to use and clean. It is also relatively quiet. My reason for returning it is that it produces ozone and other oxidants as by-products, which is true for all ionizing purifiers. The emission ozone level is under the 50 ppb voluntary guideline, but I simply did not enjoy the idea of a purifier that purifies and pollutes at the same time. This is especially true for me because I had asthma and currently I have an abnormal heartbeat pattern. It is not a threatening health situation nor serious, but I want to be on the safe side.

Nevertheless, Kaz support team was nice and advised me to return it to where I bought it. I was able to return it back to Home Depot without any trouble. Consequently I was really grateful and bought another Kaz made purifier from Home Depot in the same day. It is the Honeywell 50250 Honeywell 50250N 99.97% Pure HEPA Round Air Purifier.

I got this filter because my wife is allergic to our cat. We've tried the top of the line Sharper Image filter costing more than twice as much for 2 years that did just about nothing but did it quietly. This filter is noisy except on the low setting but even at the low setting, it keeps the air clean, a fresher smell than the rest of the house. Both my wife and I noticed the results immediately. We wake up with our sinuses clear, something we haven't felt in a long time. Because of this I order 2 of the smaller ones for other parts of the house, can't wait to put those in use.

As previous reviews said the sound on high setting is similar to a humidifier, but the air quality in our rooms is noticably fresher. I was looking for a good dog dander, dust, and pollen air cleaner without replacable filters and it needed to circulate the air. This one has fit the mark and I have noticed considerable less dust on the hardwood floors and furniture in our home and thank god it smells a lot fresher in here. In a house with 3 adult guys and a Great Dane who all have allergies this air purifier for under $200 gets 5 stars.

We bought two Honeywells, after checking out several sites trying to figure out which air purifier would be the best and most economical for our home. We chose this model for its price, its durability and no filters to buy. We have had them running for a couple of months and they are very efficient. We have not had to clean the filters yet, but it appears to be a simple task. They do have a powerful fan, but it has 3 speeds. This model tells you when the filter needs to be cleaned, very clearly, right on the top. We have a small dog and we love to cook, and we have had great results with these air purifiers. Thanks-Catherine

Have used on low speed for two months (some noise) and we feel better and the dust is not on the furniture now. Regular house filters only stop five to ten percent of dust. Putting in a better house filter could damage your AC from loss of air flow. My reserch showed this unit to be the best buy overall.

I purchased this about a month ago and it has made a big improvement in my breathing. I have allergies and when I used to wake up in the morning I would be all congested, not any more. This has (3) variable settings High, Medium, Low which is nice because on the high setting it can be difficult to fall asleep, however on the low setting it helps me fall asleep. I have yet to clean it's reusable filter, as the digital read out shows that it is not yet dirty and I have ran it almost everyday for at least (4) hours at a time? It has a timer that will shut it off (1-10 hours). It would be nice if the timer could automatically turn the unit on? Overall I am very happy with this unit and do recommend it. Hope this helped, thanks for reading it.

We originally purchased 4 of these when we bought a house where the previous resident smoked. Despite steaming the carpet, cleaning the walls, replacing the blinds, etc, the smoke lingered. We rotated the 4 Honeywell HFD-130s through the house and over the course of 1 month, all the smoke was gone.

I'm a family doctor and I noticed that hand-washing did not provide protection against air-borne infections when treating my patients. During every cold/flu season, I'd get sick myself and then whenever a patient had smoke on his/her clothes, I'd be coughing and wheezing in the exam room, which led to me missing work and not being able to care for my patients at least 2 days per month during outbreaks. This fall I put the 4 Honeywell HFD-130s in my exam rooms and office, and have not been sick at all and my patients who smoke no longer make me have fits of coughing and sneezing and wheezing. I've recently purchased 2 more to have back at home for allergy season. I would never be without these. I make sure the office filters are vacuumed once every month, and enjoy not paying for HEPA filters... 5 stars.
