Very Nice

This is a an extremely nice air purifier, and does the job for the appropriate sized room. I mainly use it in auto, and have added the additional two S filter and just ordered the A+. This is a great buy. I need to find out form Honywell if auto turns off if air quality justifies it. I sprayed a small amount of alcohol in the room and not too close to the HPA5200B, it automatically detected it quickly and ramped up to clear the air.

Purchased this unit after having been completely satified wiht the HPA5300B and Satisfied with the HPA5100B for the purposes that they served. The HPA5200B is excellent. It is quiet, and I was shocked when after using the unit on the Low setting overnight then switching to the Auto setting, the unit lit up RED!. I'm now just keeping the unit on Auto and letting it test the air every half hour or whatever schedule it is on. Annual Filter Kits are available from Honeywell.

Handsome and Effective

I purchased this after reading reviews and speaking with friends who made purchases of Air Purifiers and I was pleased as I opened the box and saw this product. Instructions were clear, easy to follow so I moved it into the living room, and even though it is large, it is unobtrusive as it sits near a rocking chair. I tried it out and it is very quiet. I hope we do not have the air pollution we had last summer with fires but if we do I am prepared. My husband and I also have allergies so running the purifier in the morning helps reduct our symptoms. Very pleased with the purchase and the operation of the Air Purifier.

I was skeptical that an air purifier could eliminate the smoke that was getting inside from a nearby wood stove but this Honeywell model did! I cant recommend it highly enough.

Perfect size for my family room

A friend recommended this unit to me for my family room.I'm very happy I purchased it because it does an excellent job of cleaning and purifying the air. Even when on the turbo setting, the unit is not very loud the sound just becomes soothing white noise.

Very good investment

I was very pleased to discover the quick reference guide on how to operate the air purifier without spending a lot of time reading the manual first. Its also very convenient to have 4 cleaning levels and choices for cleaning duration. The noise level doesn't bother me at all because after a short period of time it just becomes pleasant white noise, even though the turbo setting is a little louder. I've only used the air purifier for less than a month, but I am confident that, over time, I will realize the full benefits of having it because I have a lot of confidence in the quality of Honeywell products.

Honeywell HPA5200B

The air quality indicator detects bad air VOCs that I cannot detect on my own -- and people say I have a bloodhound nose! I purchased this unit for this feature and I'm so glad I did! I look forward to purchasing the additional S filter to help remove odors because the unit is quiet enough and just needs a little more help pulling remaining stubborn lingering odors from the air.

Good Air Purifier

It works well now, but it is made in China with all plastic construction. Unknown what is covered by the Limited 5 Year Warranty. Durability may be an issue.

Instant relief!

I recently got diagnosed with a few allergies, including a severe dust mite allergy and this air purifier has helped me immensely! I have it running all day and all night. When I wake up in the mornings most of my congestion is gone. I can definitely feel a big difference in my allergy symptoms. This product doesn't make too much noise and had an adjustable light which is nice for people who are sensitive to light.

We live in California where we are dealing with tons of smoke and unhealthy weather conditions. We installed our 2 HPA5200B in our house and things have improved materially! Bravo!!!!

Fresh mountain air

Works really well, as advertised. Quieter than any fan, though when its on peak cleaning you can hear it. If you stand next to it, you can hear it, but if you are across the room it's not really noticeable. On auto it operates well below the ambient noise of the neighborhood kids, cars driving by, appliances in the home, etc.. If you use a cleaner to wipe a table, it will immediately work to clean the chemicals out of the air. Within the first hour of firing it up, I noticed the air was fresh, like going to our mountain cabin first time I've had that sensation at home, ever.

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 HPA5200 at removing allergens?
The Honeywell HPA5200 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 HPA5200 clean?
The Honeywell HPA5200 is rated to clean rooms up to 360 square feet. This makes it a large room air purifier. However, the actual size of the room that the HPA5200 can clean will depend on the level of air pollution in the room.
How loud is the Honeywell HPA5200?
The Honeywell HPA5200 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 HPA5200?
The Honeywell HPA5200 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 HPA5200
The HPA5200 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.
Is this a good air purifier for smoke?
This air purifier is AHAM verified meaning it has been independently tested to ensure its efficiency in reducing smoke in a suggested room size of 360 sq ft.

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™ HPA5200 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 large rooms (4.8 x air changes per hour in a 360 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 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 or A Pre-Cut Pre-filter

To ensure stated product performance, use only genuine and certified Honeywell replacement filters.

For optimal cleaning performance, replace your HEPA filter every 12 months. The filter check/reset light on the HPA5200 Air Cleaner will remind you when it's time to change your filter.
