Honeywell 50250-S

Honeywell is one of the most trusted brands on the market for all sorts of electrical appliances. The 50250-S true HEPA air purifier has not let them down. In fact, it’s one of the only brands of air purifier that’s recommended by physicians for people who suffer from allergies. Independently tested, this model (which uses Enviracaire technology) has been proven to reduce the number of airborne viruses and bacteria spores in the air with up to 100% efficien

Review Details

The Honeywell 50250-S uses true HEPA filtration which means it will remove 99.97% of household pollutants as small as 0.3 microns in size. Most notably, it will eliminate pet dander, pollen, dust and mold spores. The HEPA filter is made from a glass fiber material which negates the need for ultra violet bulbs and chemicals (which can be expensive).

This model also uses a patented 360 degree air intake and discharge making it one of the most efficient on the market. Due to this technology it’s possible to place it anywhere you like in a room of up to 390 square feet.
The HEPA filter will never require replacement and is easy to maintain by vacuuming it twice a year (this depends on the amount of usage).

What We Liked

  • Trusted by Medical Professionals
    This model is one of the only brands on the market recommended by doctors to help reduce allergy symptoms. Independently tested, it has been proven to remove up to 100% of airborne bacteria and viruses.
  • 360 Degree Enviracaire Technology
    The 50250-S will take air in from a full 360 degree radius and expels it in the same way. This makes it incredibly efficient and can easily be placed anywhere in the room.
  • Ease of Use
    With 3 fan speeds this model is fitted with an indicator to tell you when the HEPA filter needs cleaning, and the carbon pre-filter needs replacing, this unit couldn’t be easier to maintain.
  • True HEPA Filtration
    The Honeywell 50250-S uses true HEPA filtration, meaning it will remove 99.97% of dust, pollen and mold spores from the air that are as small as 0.3 microns in size.

What We Didn't Like

  • Style
    The Honeywell 50250-S isn’t the prettiest air purifier on the market. However for people that suffer terribly with allergy symptoms efficiency far outweighs looks.
  • Noise
    On its highest setting this air purifier can be noisy, but considering the benefits it offers in terms of clean air this is a small price to pay.


The Honeywell 50250-S is priced at just over $150. Considering it’s recommended by medical professionals for people that suffer with allergies due to poor air quality, this is a very reasonable price indeed. It uses patented technology to improve efficiency and is one of the easiest models on the market to maintain. Honeywell is a brand that many people turn to, and this air purifier certainly has not let the manufacturer down in terms of their focus on excellence.
