The Honeywell electronic air cleaners can be used to target Danger Level 1 contaminants, but ultraviolet lights and a carbon element must be added to come close to the effectiveness of the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit.
Most electronic air cleaners are very efficient, but suffer from the need for frequent cleaning to retain their efficiency. The Honeywell electronic air cleaners are no exception, needing to be cleaned every two months for most applications.
According to the owners manual, the Honeywell electronic air cleaners do produce ozone and, as with all electrostatic precipitators, ozone production increases as the cells load with contaminants. Read here about the EPA and ozone.
The sales brochure is a classic example of marketing features that are typical of all electronic air cleaners. The brochure states advanced technology by using an electrical charge to attract dust particles. This technology has been in use since before World War II, not particularly new or advanced.
Three of the highlights of the brochure are simply restating that the air cleaner is effective for airborne particles.
It also states that a post-filter can be added to increase performance. If their statements are true, then how much more performance can you get than 99% of all airborne particles?
The cost for the Honeywell electronic air cleaners plus the cost of a licensed contractor to modify your duct work to have it installed, can easily exceed the cost of purchasing the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit.
Your purchase includes the Electro Breeze
air cleaner panel in your size, a UV germicidal lamp, mounting plate
assembly, monitor and five replacement pads. Change your first pad
after one month of use, then change out every 2-4 months, thereafter.
