Design, size, placement

Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 air machine has a simple but modern design. The best part is changeable panel colors such as brushed stainless, graphite, gold champagne, espresso, even pink, and more.

The control panel is on the top of the air purifier, looks elegant, easy to understand buttons. Air input comes from the side and bottom, but the output is at the upper backside with a child-friendly vent guard.

Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 height is 22.25 in (56cm), width 16.75in (42cm) and depth 10in (25cm). Weight is 16lbs (7kg). Not too heavy for this size, easy to move it with built-in handle.

How it works and what sources of indoor pollution destroy

Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 has a 3-stage HEPA-style filter system and is customizable.Alen FIT50 Customizable Air Purifier with HEPA Filter to Remove Allergies & Dust

The first is a washable pre-filter. Air passes through it first, and the largest particles such as dust, lint, and hair are captured there. It also helps to extend the main filter life.

Then comes the HEPA-pure filter. It removes 99% of particles greater than 0.3 microns from the air, such as pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and other airborne pollutants. For more specific filtration, you can upgrade the HEPA filter. Paying an extra $15, you can get HEPA-silver, which is great for germs and bacteria. Paying $20, you can get a HEPA-FreshPlus filter, which is perfect for chemicals and VOCs. But for paying an extra $30, you will get HEPA-OdorCell, this will handle smoke and heavy odors.

Ozone-Safe Ionizer. This comes as the last step. It delivers negative ions into the air. That helps the air purifier capturing particles more efficiently while purifying your indoors.

Features

Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 has numerous magnificent features.

  • Filter life indicator. It has 3 lights: green, yellow and red. It will be green regularly. The yellow light will appear quickly before your filter should be replaced. Start to find a new filter because when it turns red, you will have to change the filter immediately.
  • A timer allows you to choose how long the air purifier should work. Available 2, 4, and 12 hour periods.
  • Power/Sleep Mode. Auto-off safety feature when the front cover is detached.
  • 4 fan speeds and auto-mode with SmartSensor Technology. Auto mode will pick Low, Medium, High, or Turbo speed for optimal performance. SmartSensor Air Quality Light located around the power button (Blue = clean air, Orange = moderate airborne pollution, Red = heavy airborne pollution)
  • Built-in carry handle
  • Lock/Unlock the control panel button.

Noise level

  • Speed 1 – 32.4 dB (whisper)
  • Speed 2 – 38.5 dB (light rainfall)
  • Speed 3 – 44.5 dB (heavy rainfall)
  • Speed 4 – 48.7 dB (box fan, medium)

Turbo (Speed 4) setting is pretty loud. If you have bad air quality and are working this air purifier on auto-mode, it will be noisy.

CADR, CFM

CADR – 220  

CFM (airflow in cubic feet per minute):

  • Speed 1 – 110 CFM
  • Speed 2 – 142 CFM
  • Speed 3 – 192 CFM
  • Turbo (Speed 4) – 231 CFM

Maintenance and upkeep

You will have to replace filters but don’t worry – this is an easy process. I suggest cleaning the pre-filter (the Alen Pre-Filter can be washed or vacuumed) every 2-3 months and replacing the HEPA-style filter at least once per year with normal use and every 12-18 months irregular use. The Alen BreatheSmart’s Fit50 will show you the exact replacement time with indicator lights. The optimal filter replacement cycle may vary based on your conditions and health concerns. 

With Energy Star, an air purifier is 40% more efficient than standard models and can save you up to $25 annually on your operating costs.

Minimum wattage – 36W, maximum 60W.

Summary

Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 is a really great choice for your home. It works great in spaces up to 800 square feet (74 m2) large, and you can even personalize filtration based on your needs. Unique design panels allow you to select the best for your interior. SmartSensor technology will automatically adjust itself to the pollutants in your air, turning between 4 fan speeds up or down as needed.

My name is Ryan. I have had a hard time dealing with my allergies. Happily, I found that an air purifier was effective to ease my allergy symptoms. I spent a lot of time researching the best air purifier. I know how hard it can be to find the suitable one. During the reading period, I also read a lot about humidifiers and dehumidifiers. I learned the mechanisms behind the technologies as well as the manufacturers and organizations within the industry. I now feel convinced that I have built a guide that shows you all you need to know about air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers. So I came up with the idea of creating this website.
