Hathaspace was previously known for selling air diffusers, but it then ventured into manufacturing air purifiers, and it’s slowly killing the competition. When it comes to affordable midrange air purifiers, the HSP002 model is one of the best and is also one of their top-selling models. If you’re in the market for a purifier that strikes the ideal balance between aesthetics and functionality, then this Hathaspace HSP002 review is for you. We used it for about a month and here’s everything we discovered about it.
When we were buying this air purifier, we wanted to find out why there was so much hype around it, and we quickly discovered that it works as well as it looks. We first fell in love with the sleek design, but it was the functionality of the device that sold us to it. Here’s a complete review of the Hathaspace HSP002 features.
The HSP002 is perfect if you have a high to mid-range budget and are looking for an air purifier that can clean large areas. This model comes with a smart particle sensor to monitor the air quality of your home and has a 5 stage filtration technology for effective purification. It’s 100% ozone-free, can cover up to 1500 sq. ft, and has a smart sensor that gives you real-time reports of the air quality inside your home.
The Hathaspace HSP002 air purifier has a modern design with air intakes located on the side. This leaves the air outlet at the top, which means that you can place the device anywhere in your home without obstructing the flow of clean air. The touch screen control is also located at the top of the device, making it easy to operate.
This air purifier is rectangular in shape but has rounded edges and comes in a sleek white color.
The HSP002 is highly efficient and uses the bottom-top-top airflow distribution technology, and has an impressive filtration system that ensures you only breathe in clean air. The control panel was located at the front in the previous model, which was very difficult to operate. It seems that Hathaspace read their customers’ reviews because, on the HSP002, the panel is located at the top.
This model is an upgrade from the previous in various aspects, including the coverage area. We loved its efficiency and innovative features, which we will discuss in detail below!
The filtration technology is one of the core aspects that you should always consider when buying an air purifier, and the HSP002 does not disappoint. One of its key features is the 5 stage physical filters that ensure the air is well purified before being released in your home. Most air purifiers only have 3 filters, and the additional 2 on this model only enhance its efficiency.
It comes with a:
Pre-filter: this filter is permanent but washable and is the first stage of the filtration process. It traps in large air particles, including dust, pet dander, and hair, to ensure they don’t make their way into the other filters and clog them.
Polypropylene Pre-filter: this is the second line of defense and is a high-end pre-filter that mainly captures medium-sized particles that make it past the first pre-filter. Most of the other air purifiers don’t have this feature which also protects the true HEPA filter and extends its life. This polypropylene pre-filter also comes with an anti-bacterial coating that prevents VOCs and bacteria from clinging to the main filters.
True HEPA filter: the HSP002 model comes with a true H13 HEPA filter that can trap up to 99.9% of germs that are 0.1 microns large. This filter greatly reduces your chances of contracting airborne diseases and is especially useful if you have allergies.
Activated Carbon filter: this filter is made from a mixture of activated carbon and zeolite. It mainly adsorbs bad odor from your home and can eliminate formaldehyde, gases, and VOCs.
Cold Catalyst Filter: the last filter is mainly used to eliminate harmful chemicals from your household products and VOCs. If your air has high amounts of Volatile Organic Compounds, you risk liver and kidney damage.
The best part about this filtration technology is that you don’t have to replace each filter differently, and it’s very thorough when it comes to cleaning the air inside your home. The replacement filters are also very budget-friendly.
Hathaspace recommends that you change the filters after 3,000 hours of use or after 4 months, depending on your daily usage.
The HSP002 model has a high-speed fan setting that produces 60 decibels, and the lowest one producing 30 decibels. This is a huge noise increase from the HSP001, which has a noise profile of 43 decibels and 21 decibels.
This air purifier also has a turbo mode, the highest speed setting, that allows you to purify the air quickly for an average of 60 minutes. You should, however, set the fan speeds based on the air quality of the room, with the highest speed setting being reserved for high levels of pollutants.
The Hathaspace HSP002 air purifier comes with a smart particle sensor that regularly monitors the airborne particles in a room. When the air quality drops below a certain point, this sensor turns the fans and motors on to clean it up.
If you leave the auto mode on, this air purifier will automatically identify the best fan speed setting to get rid of the air pollutants efficiently. Once the air is clean and its quality is as it should be, the HSP002 will divert back to stand-by mode.
This air purifier also has an accurate filter indicator that uses an LED light to let you know when you should replace the filters. On average, this should be done every 6 months, but depending on your level of usage, you may have to replace them sooner. The indicator takes the guesswork out of the recommended filter replacement period.
The HSP002 has inlets located on both sides where the dirty air is drawn in before being purified and released from the top for efficient air distribution.
This air purifier is made from high-quality, durable plastic and has a beautiful sleep white exterior. It’s slightly bigger than the previous model, but this is to be expected of a high-power air purifier. The control panel has a beautiful back background that also makes it easy to view the contrasting white icons.
This device is also sturdy and will serve you for a long time.
The HSP0002 model measures 27 inches in height and 16.5 inches in width, which is the average size of the biggest air purifiers in the market. This huge size houses its large motors and fans, but it also makes it bulky.
This air purifier is 27.9 pounds and is heavier than the average device. This makes it difficult to move around, so make sure you place it in an optimal position where it can purify the air of an entire room without you having to move it from one place to another.
One of the main reasons we decided to review the Hathaspace HSP002 air purifier was its efficient working processes. It has a larger coverage area compared to the HSP001 model, has high CADR ratings, and is CARB-certified. Keep reading to find out what we discovered.
The HSP002 has an area coverage of 1500 square feet, which is enough to cover large living areas or 2 -3 rooms. This is a huge upgrade from the previous model that can only clean 350 square feet.
This device has an ACH of 1 which means that it can clean the entire air in your home within 1 hour.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency Trusted Source Air Cleaners, HVAC Filters, and Coronavirus (COVID-19) | US EPA EPA recommends precautions to reduce the potential airborne transmission of the virus, such as ventilation and air filtration as a part of a larger strategy that includes minimizing close contact, surface cleaning, handwashing, and other precautions. www.epa.gov , if you’re looking for a device that can efficiently eliminate viruses in your home, you should take a hard look at the CADR rating. This rating shows how efficiently an air purifier can handle the removal of smoke, pollen, and dust. The Hathaspace HSP002 has a CADR rating of 450, which makes it one of the most exceptional devices in the market. According to AHAM guidelines, you should go for air purifiers whose CADR rating is at least ⅔ of the total cleaning area. If we apply this rule to the HSP002, it has 675 CFM, which is pretty impressive.
This air purifier has a timer function that can be set to 2,4, 6, or 8 hours and on our preferred fan speed setting. This feature comes in handy if you only wish to keep the motor running for specific periods of time, e.g., when you’re home from work.
Once the time limit elapses, the HSP002 automatically shuts down. This reduces the amount of power you use every day and further enhances the life of the filters.
Hathaspace has marketed this model as having a whisper-quiet operation, and this is most evident on the night mode. When you turn the sleep mode on, the fan speed reduces to the lowest speed setting to reduce the noise levels, creating a serene environment for a good night’s sleep. This setting also dims the indicator lights to ensure you have an undisturbed sleep.
The control panel is conveniently located at the top of the device, which makes it easy to use. In the previous model, this panel was located at the front, and there were a lot of complaints.
The icons on this panel include;
The only feature lacking on this device is child lock, which is especially useful in homes with kids. This feature would prevent them from accidentally changing the settings.
The HSP002 has a noise profile of 30dB and 60dB, which is within the industry standards. The lower noise profile is, however, still loud, especially at night or if you live in a very quiet home with minimal appliances. In a typical environment, the other home appliances would drown out the fan noses at night.
Contrary to popular belief, air purifiers don’t consume a lot of electricity. The Hathaspace HSP002 air purifier has a power consumption of 100 W which is pretty efficient for a device that large. According to the Washington Post Trusted Source What you need to know about air purifiers, including little evidence of health benefits - The Washington Post Home dwellers might do just as well with filters on HVAC systems. www.washingtonpost.com , if you’re worried about high energy consumption levels and noise but want to run the device 24/7, you should go for a model that has a high CADR and set it to the lowest fan speed settings.
This air purifier comes with a 5-year limited warranty and also has a 60 day trial period.
The HSP002 is a clear upgrade from the previous model and is one of the best mid-budget high-range devices in the market. We especially loved the easy-to-use control panel, the high CADR rating, and the magical 5-in-1 filters that made it highly efficient. It is, however, a bit bulky and difficult to move from one room to another. If you’re planning on getting this model, we hope this Hathaspace HSP002 review helps you make an informed decision.
