I received a Honeywell AirGenius 5 Air Cleaner/Odor Reducer to facilitate this review. I was not financially compensated for this post. My opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
My husband has big allergy problems and it seems that mine have actually gotten worse over the years so air filtration is really important in our home. Since it looks like the air conditioner filter is not enough, especially now that spring has sprung and is the time of year for seasonal allergies we need something to assist more than ever. As the trees start to bloom, and the pollen is released into the atmosphere, allergy sufferers begin their annual ritual of sniffling and sneezing and a stuffy, bloody nose is just a matter of time for me, so the obvious answer to our problem was an air purifier to help us at least when we are at home.
We have the Honeywell HFD300 AirGenius 3 Air Cleaner/Odor Reducer, and have actually owned that unit for a couple of years now, and it works like a charm…That air purifier is in my daughter’s room, but we needed one for our room as well, especially because the baby sleeps in our room and he has the tendency to get stuffy and I am afraid that is going to be an allergy sufferer like mommy and daddy.
Honeywell AirGenius 5 Air Cleaner/Odor Reducer
As I mentioned I love the AirGenius 3, so when Honeywell gave me the opportunity to try one of their air purifiers, I opted for the newest version of the AirGenius series.
The Honeywell AirGenius 5 Air Cleaner/Odor Reducer is recommended for large rooms (250 sq. ft.) , and features 2 pre-filter options: a washable, foam pre-filter to capture larger particles, or the replaceable “K” pre-filter with the added benefit of odor/gas/VOC reduction, so you have all the filtration power needed.
The Honeywell AirGenius 5 Air Cleaner/Odor Reducer like the AirGenius 3, is very user friendly and has all of the options on top of the unit on its touch screen controls (keep in mind that you need to touch the actual circled options, touching the numbers will not change the settings). You can find a quick use guide attached to the back of the unit for a quick reference on how to use your unit, but it is really easy to use.
The unit featured 5 different air cleaning levels: Sleep, Germ, General Clean, Allergen and Max. The unit runs very quietly ( a must if you have a baby in the room), and the tower design air purifier is slim with a sleek modern design that takes very little space and it has an oscillating option …the unit blows out air, so it kind of acts like a fan at the same time and can really help cool down a room. The unit is really powerful and this in combination with your AC unit this summer can make your room nice and cold, so you do not need to have your AC set as low as normal when the air purifier is running.
You can smell that clean air smell the minute you get your unit running, even on a low setting!
This unit has some really nice features like the optional Automatic shut-off timer – 2, 4,or 8 hours, or the optional soft accent lighting with dimmer which is great if you need to change the settings in the middle of the night and do not want to disturb the rest of the people in the room, and there is also the electronic filter check reminder. The foam filter is washable, but the optional Odor &VOC Reducing Pre-filter ( HRF-K2) is recommended to be changed every 3 months.
The AirGenius 5 is only available in black, it is ENERGY STAR by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. and has a 5 year limited warranty and it is definitely a great addition to your household.
