Alen FLEX Customizable Air Purifier Review
If you need a reliable air purifier for a large room that fits in with the room’s color scheme, the Alen FLEX Customizable Air Purifier is an excellent choice. You can select from an array of front panels, each of which is a different color. For further customization, there are even four contaminant-specific. Since this air purifier is designed for use in spacious areas, it can effectively purify the air in open living rooms, huge master suites and big offices.
It has a convenient carrying handle to help you move the robust purifier, and it uses a negligible amount of power, so it won’t run up your power bill. Plus, its touchscreen that features five labeled buttons makes changing the fan speed, timer and monitoring the filter life easy.
Optimized for Air Flow
When Alen designed this air purifier, they made sure the three air intakes on the sides and bottom along with the outlet on the top were wide to maximize the air flow. However, they were also careful to keep the air purifier easy to carry, which is why it weighs a manageable 15 pounds and has a built-in carrying handle in the back. With its height of 28 inches, width of 15 inches and depth of 8.5 inches, it’s not too difficult to find a place for it.
This air purifier can cleanse the air in rooms as big as 700 square feet. Since it’s a high-efficiency purifier, it boasts an Energy Star certification of just 36 watts. In addition, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers gives it a clean air delivery rate of 245, which means it can easily purify dust, pollen and tobacco smoke from the surrounding air.
Besides energy efficiency and a decent CADR number, you get Alen’s generous lifetime warranty. While this purifier has a go-with-everything white front panel, there are 13 other panels you can pick to quickly and easily change up the color.
Inside of the pull-off front panel that attaches to the purifier with magnets, there is a huge HEPA filter that almost spans the entire length and width of the BreatheSmart FLEX air purifier. This triple-layer HEPA-Pure filter is ideal for significantly reducing the number of dust and allergen particles in the air. As long as you vacuum or wash the pre-filter occasionally, you’ll only need to replace the filter every 6 to 9 months.
If you have special filtration needs, you can interchange the HEPA-Pure filter with one of the other three filters offered by Alen, such as VOC-destroying filter or one made for asthma sufferers.
Since the touchscreen is 4.5 inches wide, the five buttons are spaced far enough apart for ease of use. The backlit power button is flanked by two buttons on each side. On the left, there is a filter reset button with lifespan indicator lights and a timer you can set to 2, 4 or 12 hours.
On the right, there is a four-speed fan button that includes a turbo mode for purifying extra-dirty air and a lock function to prevent accidental button presses. At the lowest fan speed, the air purifier only generates 39 decibels of whisper-quiet sound. At its highest speed, the noise level reaches 55 decibels, which is similar to moderate rainfall.
