Honeywell Hpa 200 Review

We found the honeywell hpa 300 to be a great fit for air purification in large rooms and as such we trust the honeywell company.

We therefore decided to give the honeywell hpa200 a try and see whether we could recommend it to our readers who are in need of a good air purifier but would not be able to use the honeywell hpa 300.

So lets get into it.

But first things first.

Cost

Honeywell is viable with a $197 price tag which is $50 cheaper than HPA300.

Honeywell is now having more than 30 air purifiers whereby most of them are just outdated but the HPA200 is not a trending device to be forgotten. If you are just aiming on the price tag then you may find out that Honeywell has even different purifiers with the same price. This makes it hard to recognize the better purifier but for the performance rating you should choose the Honeywell HPA200.The purifier has also a 5 years warranty. It has also an Energy star certification.

DESIGN

Honeywell design is a little bit boring though it has a reputation of creating quality air purifiers which influences many people to buy Honeywell HPA200.The design looks good for its fan power which therefore improves the power of air purification. Honeywell HPA200 features a combination of both plastic and metal, unlike other most purifiers, which consist of only plastic and still holds the same price bracket. On top of the purifier is an outlet grill. It is only 19 inches in height with function buttons and two led indicators for filter replacement, it has also two handles on each side. Honeywell HPA200 has only a weight of 14lbs meaning it would be easier to move the purifier at any point at home. Honeywell HPA200 is designed for a large room.  

FILTERS

Honeywell HPA200 is a dominant air purifier witha great true HEPA filter in the world. Honey well is an impressive choice because of the following:

1.    Pre-filter _this has an activated carbon filter in it. This helps adsorb VOCs, gases, odors and trap larger particles. Filters are replaced after 3 months of usage.

2.    True HEPA filter _Honeywell HPA200 employs a dedicated true HEPA filter to capture up to 99.7% of down to 0.3 microns contaminant elements like pet dander, mold, viruses, germs and pollen.

Performance rating of Honeywell is still amazing compared with others of such a range, especially when the air purifier doesn’t have any ozone radiation. A decent air purifier like Honeywell HPA200 will cost $49 for annual filter replacement.

ROOM COVERAGE

Honeywell HPA200 is guaranteed for a room of 310sq feet. If you are confused about which air purifier to choose in $200, then Honeywell HPA200 is the runner-up in the race of room coverage.

The ACH (Air Changes per Hour) of Honeywell HPA200 is 5x, Honeywell commit really in making high ACH air purifiers. With so much power, Honeywell HPA200 will clean a room 5 times an hour.

The CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) of Honeywell HPA200 is 190Dust/ 200 Smoke/ 180 Pollen (cfm).The CADR rating of Honeywell HPA200 is much better than other great air purifier of in the same price range.

SOUND

It is clear that Honeywell air purifiers are not for bedrooms or office use. Honeywell HPA200 is also not an exception, it is mostly used in hospitals, mortuaries or other public places since it has high capability to purify the air though the fan power is too noisy to handle.

POWER CONSUMPTION

Power consumption for Honeywell HPA200 is 84 watts, nearly half of its successor _ HPA 300. For using a Honeywell HPA200 8 hours per day, it would cost you up to $30 per year. The fee is stable and can be okay to use, as Honeywell HPA200 is an Energy Star device meaning the machine won’t lead to a high increase in your electricity bill.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Honeywell HPA200 offers enough features like a timer or auto light regulator setting. It has also an electronic filter replacement LED notification. It has a Dimmer option that helps you adjust the control panels LED brightness.

How to Get rid of Common Allergies

You must have battled an allergy.

Or maybe you had someone say that they have an allergy towards dust, pollen grains, pet dander, bee sting or even food.

Maybe it got you wondering.

What the heck is this allergy that you are talking about?

What is the body physiology that reacts to allergic things.

Well, you are lucky because we shall look into all those things.

Other than looking at what are allergies and causes, we shall also look at tips to avoid or even cure allergies.

So, sit tight and read through.

What are allergies?

An allergy is a damaging immune response by the body to a substance, especially a certain food, pollen, fur, or dust, to which it has become an extreme sensitivity to particular substances or situations.

What causes allergies?

An allergy starts when your immune system mistakes a normally harmless substance to a dangerous attacker. The immune system then produces antibodies that remain on the alert for that particular allergen. When you’re exposed to the allergen o’er, these antibodies can release a number of immune system chemicals, such as histamine, that cause allergy signs. Histamine is an organic compound involved in native immune reactions and physiological function in the gut and acting as a neurotransmitter for the brain, spinal cord and uterus.

Common allergy triggers include the following:

·       Airborne allergens, such as pollen, animal dander, dust and mold.

·       Certain foods, particularly peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, eggs and milk.

·       Insect stings, from a bee or a wasp

·       Medications, penicillin or penicillin based antibiotics

·       Latex or substances you touch, which can cause allergic reactions to the skin.

You might also be likely to develop an allergy if:

·       You have a family history of asthma or different types of allergies e.g. hay fever, hives or eczema.

·       You are a child

·       Have asthma or any other allergic condition

Types of allergies

Drug allergy

There are different ways you can tell if you have an allergic reaction to medicine hives and anaphylaxis being most of the common signs. A drug allergy is being experienced by some of the following symptoms.

·       Wheezing

·       Nausea

·       Vomiting and diarrhea

·       Decrease in blood pressure

·       Fainting

·       Facial swelling

Insect sting allergy

The type of bug you may be allergic to can range from stinging to biting insects, such as bees and mosquitoes. A sting or a bite will have its natural side effect and for an allergic person it will also cause you to display typical allergic symptoms. It is also likely to last longer than few days.

An insect sting allergy can cause one of the following:

·       A large area of swelling (edema) at the sting site

·       Itching or hives all over the body

·       Anaphylaxis

·       Wheezing or shortness of breath

·       Rash

Latex

Latex is a type of rubber used to create items such as rubber bands, balloons, condoms, gloves, etc. If you get into contact with this items and get complications such as skin redness, itchiness, rashes, this is to show that you may be allergic to latex.

Food allergies

This allergies occur due to individual’s immune system making an antibody which clashes with certain foods. This can lead to symptoms such as itching in the mouth, swelling dizziness vomiting, hives, and rashes. Such types of foods include peanut, eggs, milk, meat, etc.

Dust allergies

Dust is an irritant that most people are allergic to. Allergies caused by dust are such as sneezing, itchy eyes, coughing, and other cold like symptoms.

Tips on getting rid of allergies

Cleansing the nose

Try cleansing the nose with a sinus, irrigator or nasal oils since pollens adhere to our mucus membranes. While at work maybe in a yard or a dusty place you can also try to work with your mask put on to cover your mouth and nose. This will minimize the rate of you smelling chemicals or trapping dust directly with the nose.

Healthy diet

Research has shown out that people who eat healthy fresh vegetables and fruits have a low risk of getting allergic symptoms. This shows that a healthy diet is good for your body’s immunity. I recommend that you add at least a fresh fruit or vegetable to your every meal. Detox the body by eliminating fried foods, sugar and other toxins from your diet.

Drink  water regularly

Taking a lot of water can ease the rate of you being allergic. Warm water also has an added advantage since it can thin the mucus passage in your nasal passage. Water will also make you reduce the stuffiness. You can also inhale some steam to ease a stuffy nose.

Keep clean

Try making natural cleaners in your everyday ingredients, this will reduce the rate of harsh chemicals irritating your nose. Use air purifiers that have HEPA filters to trap all sorts of allergens.

The Honeywell hpa 300 would be a good fit for example since it has true hepa filters

If pollen count is high, you can keep your doors and windows shut to protect indoor air.    

Medical attention

Try to make a point of knowing your triggers, take a skin test so you can know your triggers and later make a plan to avoid them. Butterbur is considered a good herb for people who are allergenic. Quercetin is a nutrient found in onions, apples and black tea that research has shown to block the release of histamine. Releasing stress on the nervous system permits the immune system function more effectively. Apple cider vinegar also boosts the immune system by breaking up mucus and lymphatic drainage.
