Alen BreatheSmart

Nowadays, the indoor air seems to be more polluted than outdoor air, and this is due to many causes, such as tobacco smoke, paint fumes, pet dander, pollen and many more. It is, therefore, important to find ways to filter all the pollutants and viruses that may endanger our health. The Alen BreatheSmart is something to be considered because as you probably already know, air purifiers are the most efficient at filtering air and improving air quality. This one retails for under $600. It’s more pricey than most comparable products available on the market, but if you are looking for a versatile unit that is capable of removing contaminants from mid-sized to large room, it can do the job perfectly fine. Here’s what you need to know about the Alen BreatheSmart.

Technical specifications

The Alen BreatheSmart uses 64 watts on low speed and 105 watts on Turbo and although it’s energy star qualified, it’s not that energy efficient. If you don’t use the purifier so often, then there will be no problem with leaving it turned on for a couple of hours a day. However, if you want to limit the carbon footprint of the machine you can set the unit on at operation times. This means that after 4 hours of continuous use, the device will enter a sleep mode and stop functioning until you decide it’s time to turn it back on. It’s also possible to leave it on during the day and night if you want, although we recommend using the night mode that will bring the fan on low speed and turn off the lights so that your sleep won’t be interrupted.

Convenience features

One reason why this air cleaner is so popular among many customers around the world is the fact that it’s very user-friendly and practical. It is packed with many convenient features, which makes this device so easy to use. Some of the convenience features are:

  • You can adjust the fan speed and choose between a turbo, high, medium or low setting, depending on your preference
  • The air quality sensor is a great addition because it lets users know when the air within the room has reached an optimal quality level
  • We like that this device has a couple of push-buttons that are intuitive and easy to use. However, if you find it somewhat hard to program it (although we doubt it) you can always consult the user manual so that you get more familiar with how this unit works

Performance

Besides having a user-friendly design, it can cover 1,1000 square feet so it’s suitable for mid-sized to large rooms. It’s very important to mention that this model uses high-quality filters, like the HEPA-Pure filters that are capable of capturing even the microscopic particles. The filtration system has two layers of sealed filtration that are made to retain particles that are 0.3 or more microns. This device can act as an ionizer, generating negative ions that clear the air of impurities and bacteria. What’s important for you to keep in mind is the fact that you can operate the BreathSmart in two different ways. You can choose to make it an active air filter, meaning that the air sensor will automatically adjust the fan speeds for optimal performance.

Design

The first thing that you will notice about the Alen BreatheSmart is its design and mainly its size. It is large compared to other models in its price range. Nonetheless, larger models can pick up more dust and cover a wider area, so this is a plus after all. These are some of the design characteristics:

  • The Alen BreatheSmart was designed in a way so that it’s easy for everyone to use it and understand the controls which are labeled clearly so that you won’t struggle with choosing various settings or adjusting the air filtering capabilities
  • You can choose to turn off all the controls and indicators so that it won’t bother you during the night
  • Despite its size, the Alen BreatheSmart is a fairly quiet appliance, although it may become a bit loud if you keep it on high speed for a wide interval of time

Warranty and support

The Alen company has a reputation for offering good customer support. Alen representatives are available by telephone and email, so if you have some important questions or concerns that you want to address to the company, look for the customer service line online, on their official page. There you can look through the FAQs section or download a user manual. Other than offering very good customer service, Alen is currently the only air cleaner that offers a lifetime warranty for their product. So, as long as you have the Alen BreatheSmart, you can repair it without any additional costs.
