  • Filters And Technology Used

  • True HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are known for their effective and comprehensive filtering abilities in purifying a room of various airborne contaminates including microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. Because of this, the HEPA SilentComfort air purifier is a very effective machine that utilizes not only the HEPA filtering system, but the carbon-based pre-filter as well.

    Permanent True HEPA Filter

    The HEPA filter is capable of removing 99.97% of common household particulates as small as 0.3 microns such as dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, mold spores and pet dander. It also reduces up to 100% of the airborne viruses and bacteria. These contaminants contribute to allergies, asthma attacks, colds and the flu.

    Since the HEPA filter is permanent, there is no need to buy costly replacement filters on a regular basis. The lifetime filter is easily cleaned by vacuuming it 2 times per year.

    Carbon Pre-filter

    The carbon pre-filter traps larger airborne particles and helps to remove common household odors. Carbon filters have large surface areas that are very effective in absorbing odors, gases and chemicals that are too small to be trapped by the HEPA filter.

    The carbon pre-filter will need to be replaced every 3 months.

  • Performance of The Honeywell SilentComfort

  •   The HEPA SilentComfort has the ability to clean medium- to large-sized rooms, up to 235 sq. ft.

    At high speed, the HEPA SilentComfort can completely exchange the air in a standard size room (11’ x 17’) every 12 minutes (6 air changes/hour).

    The SilentComfort Technology effectively reduces the noise level during high speed operation. Consumer Reports compare Honeywell air purifiers and rated the noise level at high and low speeds as good and very good respectively on this model.

  • Additional Features

    • No Draft Technology – This purifier is able to clean a room without producing a cold exhaust draft such as with other makes and models.
    • Intelli-check Filter Indicator – a reminder light illuminates when it is time to either clean the HEPA filter or change the carbon pre-filter.
    • SurroundSeal Technology – a tight seal that prevents air leaks from occurring when the air passes through the filter, thus ensuring total capture of all particles.
    • 3 Fan Speeds – High, Medium, Low
    • Dimensions: 19” x 19” x 18”
    • Color: Pale Gray
    • Weight: 22 lbs.
    • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Price And Warranty

  • Depending on the retailer, prices for the HEPA SilentComfort range from $150 - $280.

    There is a 5-year limited warranty.

    True HEPA replacement filter (#HRF-14) costs $70 (2-pack).The replacement carbon pre-filter (#38002) costs $15.

With its combination carbon pre-filter and HEPA filter filtering systems, the HEPA SilentComfort is very effective in eliminating close to 100% of airborne contaminants.

In fact, more doctors recommend the SilentComfort to their patients who suffer from allergies and asthma than any other brand. According to survey of physicians, 93% rated the HEPA filtration as very effective while 82% would personally recommend the SilentComfort air purifier to patients.

This positive assertion coincides with the Honeywell air purifier reviews that the HEPA SilentComfort air purifier is the top of the line when it comes to air cleaning performance.
