Honeywell F200 Price
The Honeywell is traditionally an air purifier with high fan power. With the Honeywell F100 as the first step in bringing Honeywell out of this concept and into the world of whole-home air cleaners.
The Honeywell F200 is ready to go further by bringing the MERV-13 air filter into real-world use.
It costs more than the Honeywell F100, obviously, but Honeywell doesn’t announce the price officially. From some well-known retailers, I believe the price is at least $189.

Honeywell F200 Design and Size
The Honeywell F200 is a collection of whole-home air cleaners for multiple size. You can check the table below for full comparison.
|Aprilaire equivalent||Aprilaire 2410||Aprilaire 2210||N/A||Aprilaire 2310|
For the dimension, it is a bit bigger than the previous model, with 20 inches in height and 25 inches in depth. It is also heavier with a total weight of 40 lbs.
The whole-home air cleaner Honeywell F200 is made of steel, with a efficient door design. With improved gasket, the air cleaner can reduce air loss through the door up to 37%. Also, you can simply open the door to replace the filter.
On the front, you will find a TrueHOME customizable label, which includes your contact information so you can know who to call for service or replacement parts.

Honeywell F200 Filters
Again, we will have only one air filter in this Honeywell F200 Whole House Air Cleaner.
- HEPA filter – Just like other HVAC system’s filter, Honeywell F200 will use the MERV-13 air filter, which can capture up to 97% airborne particles compared to a standard one-inch filter.
Honeywell F200 will use the MERV-13 air filter, so it can trap ultra-fine particles much better than the original MERV-11 filter. You can look at the comparison table below.
|0.3 – 1 microns||1 – 3 microns||3 – 10 microns|
The deep-pleated media filter has a large surface area to capture more airborne particles. It also lasts longer, and you only need to replace the filter every 6 – 12 months.
Our today unit is a Honeywell F200F2010, with the filter named FC200E1037. You need to check the filter carefully by asking your professional dealer.

Honeywell F200 Room Coverage
All whole-home air cleaners, including of Honeywell F200, are able to work with the whole-home HVAC system, and can clean the room up to 2000 square feet easily.

Honeywell F200 Sound
Without fan power, Honeywell F200 won’t produce any noise. And actually the Honeywell F200 will work in unison with your existing heating, ventilating, and cooling system (HVAC) to filter all contaminants in your air, so no way you can see it in your living areas.
So to say, this isn’t even a selling point of Honeywell F200, and you should bypass this section at all.

Honeywell F200 Power Consumption
One of our most FAQs is “Do air purifiers use a lot of energy?” In fact, we need to run an air purifier for a long time to be efficient. And power consumption is one important criteria to review if this air purifier is a must buy or not.
However, the Honeywell F200 is just a cabinet of one air filter. It doesn’t need the electricity, and you don’t need to check its power consumption.

Honeywell F200 Additional Features
The latest versions of Honeywell F200 added a Wireless Airwatch Indicator to help you know when to change the air filter. This feature is the most basic one in any air purifiers, but the Honeywell F200 is the only whole-home air cleaner to have it.
Other than that, it is still a cabinet without any special features.
Honeywell F200 Customer Service
Honeywell is a leading brand in air purifier market, but they don’t offer a friendly customer service as others. You can reach them via mailbox of Honeywell Store in 407 N. Quentin Road, Palatine, Illinois. But I suggest you should call them at 847-701-3038 for any support questions. Or you can email to email@example.com for any problems you experience while on the site or after buying a product. Honeywell is available from Monday to Friday.
They don’t have Free Shipping like Rabbit Air or Alen, and you must notify them within one business day for any problems with third-party shipping service like USPS or FedEx. Otherwise, they won’t take responsibility for any merchandise damage in transit. Also, the shipment can take up to 10 business days from the date that the order is shipped.
The hardest part is when you want to return one Honeywell air purifier, as you only have 30 days from the date you receive your item to process your return. You won’t receive the shipping charge (on both the original shipping charge and the return shipping charge) and must pay a 10-30% re-stocking fee if there is no damage caused by transit or workmanship defects.
The warranty policy of Honeywell is also among the longest to guarantee against all defects, with up to 5 years warranty.
The counterpart of Aprilaire 2000 Series is here, but Honeywell F200 is a bit more expensive. Thankfully, it has a filter replacement indicator, as well as the ability to upgrade into the Honeywell F300, which is truly precious.
Great whole-home air cleaner, with ability to upgrade to the flagship version.
