It’s a miracle… I can finally breathe!!!

Let me start off my saying I just was desperate for anything that would help my swollen eyes and hives all over my face and neck. We just got the cutest baby kitten, it’s fall allergy season, and I live in God’s country, Lake Tahoe. So, I have 3 strikes against me. I was given steroids to help but that wasn’t enough. Someone told me to buy an air purifier. Skeptical I was as what could a big box circulating some air do that meds couldn’t. Well, it did a WHOLE LOT!!! I've had this Honeywell Air Purifier going for 12 hours and my sinuses are fully open, hives are nonexistent, and I can actually breathe without wheezing. If you suffer from allergies I highly recommend this. It’s worth tevery penny! I've already ordered the smaller ones for our bedrooms and office. Wolfie, our kitten and I love Honeywell and so will you!!! Bonus, it’s extremely quiet, and the night mode is awesome. You dont even notice it’s running.

Effective yet quiet

We have this unit in our great room and it is so quiet we don't even know it's running. We have pets and allergies so this will really make a difference. We have another Honeywell air purifier in our bedroom and we love it also.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

We bought this in December 2021 as we realized that daily cleaning could just not keep up with the smell of dog in our apartment. We got this as a Christmas gift and it has made such a huge difference!! Even without the special pet filter, it still has reduced the dog smell throughout the whole apartment! It is obvious when it is time for a filter change as there is a noticeable decline in performance, but once a new pre-filter is installed it is back to reducing the bad smells! Overall, it works well and is easy to clean as it does get dusty. It's a big, black unit so it is hard to hide but it is slim enough where it can sit in the main living room area and not be in the way!

Effective and not too loud

Extremely quiet on the lowest setting. Obviously, it gets louder with each increase in fan speed, but even the medium setting is fairly quiet background white noise. I run a weekly a cappella rehearsal at my house, so having good air quality and a quiet purifier is important for us! I run it for a couple of hours on high before people arrive to get dust/dander/pollen out of the air, then on medium during rehearsal to make sure there's air turn over during our time together, and then I run it on high again afterwards to get any potential germs out of the air. The auto-off function is really handy so that I can set it and forget it and not worry about wasting energy. Honestly, it's hard to tell how clean the air is or isn't when this is running, but after 3 months of weekly use, I can at least see that its pulling quite a bit of dust and cat hair out of the air based on how dirty the filters are!

Simpler and better? than BlueAir

Does its job right out of the box. Quiet, and the display light can be turned off, and so works well in our bedroom. Does not have complicated controls or WiFi or apps which would add minimal value in my opinion.

Great Air Purifier with NO Drama!!!!

Super easy to put together and change filters. Does a great job of filtering the air as we purchased four for our home: 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs, and one for the office. All of the 5 units worked flawlessly, as advertised, which is a rarity these days. Quality of the units are great. When we are not around, we put them on the turbo mode for maximum filtration yes they can be loud, but turn them down when we have to work in the same room. I would suggest this unit to friends and family. Thank you Honeywell for putting some thought into this design, great job!

Very Nice Air Purifier

We are impressed with our new air purifier. We have been running it on the Auto mode most of the time. The lowest mode is very quiet and when it detects allergens in the air it surprises us when it kicks into high gear. Installation of the filters was easy.

As someone who has severe allergies, I was skeptical that an air purifier could handle the smoke that gets inside from a nearby wood stove. This Honeywell model did and worked for the entire downstairs of the house! I couldn't be happier.

Fewer sinus issues

Product is effective. I wake up with lesser sinus issues and boogers. The unit is also pretty quiet unless it's on turbo mode when the air inside the house gets more contaminated. I would buy again so far.

What Are Honeywell Insight Air Purifiers?
These home air purifiers have been engineered to capture up to 99.97% of the following microscopic airborne allergens and particles: dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mite debris and smoke. These portable air purifiers use an easy to read VOC sensor that displays the surrounding air quality level. They also implement a custom filtration process via enhanced odor filters, effectively turning them into pet air purifiers, smoke air purifiers and air purifiers for allergies.
How effective is the Honeywell HPA5300 at removing allergens?
The Honeywell HPA5300 is a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) air purifier, which means it can remove up to 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns and larger. This includes dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores. The portable air purifier also has an activated carbon pre-filter that helps remove odors and VOCs.
How big of a room can the Honeywell HPA5300 clean?
The Honeywell HPA5300 is rated to clean rooms up to 500 square feet. This makes it an extra large room air purifier. However, the actual size of the room that the HPA5300 can clean will depend on the level of air pollution in the room.
How loud is the Honeywell HPA5300?
The Honeywell HPA5300 has four settings, and the noise level varies depending on the setting. At the lowest speed, this home air purifier is about as quiet as a whisper. At the highest speed, the portable air purifier is about as loud as a normal conversation.
How often do I need to change the filters on the Honeywell HPA5300?
The Honeywell HPA5300 comes with a pre-filter and a HEPA filter. The pre-filter should be replaced every 1-3 months, and the HEPA filter should be replaced every 6-12 months. InSight Air Purifiers can also use enhanced filters that should be replaced every 3 months.
What filters do I need for the HPA5300?
The HPA5300 uses Replacement True HEPA Filter R and Replacement Pre-filter A. Optional enhanced odor filters can be used for targeting specific odors, making these excellent air purifiers for allergies or pet air purifiers.
Why did my Air Purifier suddenly turn on a higher setting?
Is the air purifier set to Auto Mode? If it is, the unit may have sensed a higher level of VOCs and has adjusted the cleaning level accordingly
My Air Purifier is starting to make noise and the air output is less. What's wrong?
The filters may be dirty. High amounts of contaminants can block the pores in the filter and stop the air from moving through it. Replace the Filters. The HEPA Filters should be replaced every year and the Pre-Filter and Enhanced Odor and VOC Filters should be replaced every 3 months. Please note these are guidelines only and filters should be checked periodically as individual home conditions may vary. To ensure the unit is performing properly, replace with Certified Genuine Honeywell Filters.
How long should I run my Air Purifier?
In general, the unit will be most effective when doors and windows are closed. It is recommended that you run your air purifier while you are at home to help clean the air. If desired or conditions warrant, you may run your air purifier 24 hours a day
Can I wash any of the filters in my Air Purifier?
No. Washing the filters in your air purifier will ruin them.
What are VOCs?
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted from various solids and liquids such as paints, cleaning supplies, building materials, and permanent markers. Some of these compounds can have adverse short and long term health effects and consistently have higher concentrations indoors than outside.
Do Honeywell Air Purifiers Emit Ozone?
No, Honeywell HEPA Air Purifiers use HEPA Filtration that does not release ozone into the surrounding area.

The Honeywell InSight™ Series Air Purifier delivers powerful HEPA filtration and features a cutting-edge design that displays device setting information from a distance. The Air Quality Indicator is powered by a VOC sensor that will constantly monitor room air quality while providing real time, easy to understand color coded feedback via the clear Insight™ Display Panel. When on Automatic Cleaning mode, the home air purifier uses the air quality reading to automatically adjust to the optimal cleaning level for cleaner air. The easy to read color coded feedback on the clear Insight™ Display Panel will illuminate which cleaning level (4 available) you've selected. The Honeywell InSight™ HPA5300 HEPA Air Purifier uses Certified HEPA filters to help capture up to 99.97% of microscopic allergens and particles.1 This portable air purifier can help capture airborne particles such as dust, smoke, pollen, pet dander and mold spores in extra large rooms (4.8 x air changes per hour in a 500 sq. ft.).This makes it an excellent choice to use as an air purifier for allergies or as a pet air purifier. In addition, the carbon activated pre-filter helps trap larger particles and helps reduce odors and VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

VOC Sensor and Air Quality Indicator

This extra large room air purifier is equipped with a VOC Sensor that detects the level of VOCs in a room while providing an easy to read visual display to indicate air quality. The Air Quality Indicator is located on the InSight™ Display (only available in the HPA5200, HPA5250, HPA5300 and HPA5350 Series). The VOC Sensor is constantly monitoring the surrounding air. The Air Quality Indicator light will illuminate either green, yellow, or red depending on the level of VOCs detected in the room:

  • Green - Good Air Quality: There is a very low level of VOCs in the surrounding area.

  • Yellow - Moderate Air Quality: There is a moderate level of VOCs in the surrounding area.

  • Red - Poor Air Quality: There is an elevated level of VOCs in the surrounding area.

A+ Genuine Pre-Filter

This home air purifier works with the Honeywell A and A+ Pre-Filter. The Pre-Filter is the first level of filtration and helps capture large particles such as dust, lint, fibers and pet fur and helps to reduce VOCs & odors from cooking, smoke, bathrooms and pets. This filter should be replaced every 3 months. The filter check/reset light will remind you when it's time to change your filter. Initial filter included. To ensure stated product performance, use only genuine and certified Honeywell replacement filters.

R Certified True HEPA Filter

The Certified Honeywell True HEPA R Replacement Filter helps capture up to 99.97% of microscopic allergens, 0.3 microns & larger from any air passing through the filter. For optimal cleaning performance, replace your HEPA filter every 12 months. The filter check/reset light on the HPA5300 Air Cleaner will remind you when it's time to change your filter. Initial filter included.

AHAM Verifide

This air purifier for allergies is AHAM (Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers) Verifide meaning that it has been independently tested to ensure its efficiency in reducing smoke, dust and pollen in the suggested room size. (extra large room air purifier) The AHAM assigns a CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) Rating that measures the volume of filtered air delivered by an air cleaner.

  • 4.8 Air changes per hour in a 500 sq. ft. room
