When thinking about the best air purifier, you would do well to consider a Honeywell. I know they probably aren\u2019t known for making the best air purifier for baby, and are more known for smart home technologies and alerts (a water leak and such), but they have put forth a good effort with the HPA300.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Honeywell Home\r\nThe Honeywell Home HPA300 is a powerful two-stage filtration air purifier that captures all manner of contaminants thanks to its effective True HEPA Filter and covers just about the largest room size we\u2019ve seen so far with 465 square feet.\r\n\r\nPower\/Speed\r\nThe Honeywell HPA300 features a two-stage filtration system which begins with a pre-filter with an activated carbon filter in it to capture larger particles. If you want something specifically for mold, you should consider the Levoit LV-PUR131S. The HPA300 also has two indicator lights to let you know when either the pre-filter or regular filter needs changing.\r\nEfficiency\r\nThankfully, the Honeywell is designed for the rooms. It can purify a generous room size of 465 square feet. If you\u2019re looking for something that can both purify and humidify, check out the Levoit H132. Unfortunately, the HPA300 has larger-than-average power consumption at 40-130 watts. This means you\u2019ll be paying about $50 per year to run it.\r\nVersatility\r\nIn addition to the pre-filter, the HPA300 also uses a True HEPA Filter to capture 99.97% of germs as small as 0.3 microns. These germs include anything from dust and pollen to smoke and mold spores, and everything in between. If you\u2019re looking for a purifier specifically for mold you can check out the Levoit I mentioned previously, or you can try the Rabbit Air Minusa2 too.\r\nDurability\r\nThe HPA300 isn\u2019t going to be a light machine like most other purifiers. In fact, at 22 pounds, it\u2019s probably one of the heavier machines we\u2019ve seen. It depends on whether you want to sacrifice weight for power. The other downside is that the HPA300 can get rather loud. It can definitely wake a sleeping baby, so having it on at night, or during nap time, probably isn\u2019t a good idea.\r\nValue\r\nHome comfort is the name of the game when it comes to Honeywell. The smart home thermostats and smart home security systems are probably what they are best known for. But their air purifiers shouldn\u2019t really be written off. Sure, they aren\u2019t compatible with the Honeywell Home App, but their true value comes in their power and cleaning ability. And they have the basic features, such as adjustable fan speeds and timers, to get the job done.\r\nHoneywell Home Wrap Up\r\nThe HPA300 is a good effort from Honeywell, even with its drawbacks. You probably won\u2019t be moving it out of the babies room anytime soon so the weight shouldn\u2019t be a problem. It\u2019s a little loud, sure, but you can just run it in the baby\u2019s room while the baby is awake and having some parents time.
