Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 Air Purifier
The Alen BreatheSmart Fit50 air purifier features an impressive combination of SmartSensor Technology and WhisperMax Technology. In Auto Mode, the SmartSensor automatically adjusts cleaning levels to meet air quality levels based on the level of airborne pollutants. With WhisperMax Technology, a specially designed fan and air chamber maximizes clean air delivery while maintaining a peaceful environment. Smart technology and intuitive filtration work together to provide an easy to use air purifier that responds to your unique needs.
The Fit50 HEPA type filtration combines two types of filter technology. Polluted air first passes through a washable Pre-Filter, capturing large particles. Air then moves through HEPA type material where 99% of airborne particles are captured.
Personalize your BreatheSmart Fit50 to your air quality needs with four filter options to choose from (all include Alen’s pre-filter):
- HEPA-Pure Filter (comes standard) – Dust and Allergens
- HEPA-FreshPlus Filter – Chemicals (VOCs) and Odor
- HEPA-SilverCarbon Filter – Germs and Bacteria
- HEPA-OdorCell Filter – Smoke and Heavy Odor
The new Fit50 features easy to use, intuitive push button controls, active air quality sensor, filter life timer and a magnetic front panel for easy access to the filters. With all the benefits of the original BreatheSmart, the Fit50 is 25% smaller, but provides up to 900 square feet of coverage and removes 99% of particles greater than 0.3 microns.
The Alen BreatheSmart Fit50 air purifier includes washable pre-filter and HEPA-style filter for dust and allergen removal. Available in white and 3 additional fashion colors to match your décor.
A style as unique as you
With its thoughtful design, the BreatheSmart FIT50 is at home in the family room or the boardroom. The modern design features intuitive controls and customizable designer panels to compliment your decor. Perfect for medium sized living rooms and bedrooms, FIT50 offers 900 SqFt of coverage on its highest speed.
The FIT50 uses a combination push button covered by film for its controls. It looks sleek and has a high end professional feel. It definitely feels like a $500 appliance and it looks like one too. The unit is turned on with a soft but intentional push of the button. Pushing the power button again puts the unit into sleep mode. This turns off all of the lights while still maintaining its operation. While you don’t think the little lights can be bright, try them in a pitch dark room. You’ll be very thankful for this little touch. Press the power button again when the unit is in sleep mode to turn the unit off completely. Pressing any other button will turn the lights back on.
Easy Filter Change
The filter is placed behind the front panel of the unit. The front panel hangs on the top front of the unit and snaps into the bottom with the use of magnets. This process is a little confusing at first. When you pull on the front panel, many people instinctively pull from the top, rather than the bottom. And when putting the front panel back on, you have to pay attention to guide the hooks into the slot. However, do it once, and the process will become quick and effortless.
Easy to Follow Stickers for a Quick Use
The FIT50 includes several stickers on the control panel, front panel, and inside of the unit that make it easy to start using right out of the box. This saves a lot of effort from having to flip through the manual to figure out what everything does.
Good Construction Quality
This unit is quite solid. The plastic seems rather solid as well. The unit is well balanced and easy to carry with a handle in the middle of the back of the unit. The Forever Guarantee resolves any other concerns about construction quality that we could encounter.
