Affordable Alen T300 Air Purifier

The affordable Alen T300 air purifier removes 93% of the particles floating around in the air you breathe. Providing clean air in your home is one of the best things you can do for your family.

If you are suffering from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments, you may need to choose a high priced air cleaning for your health. For most of us, removing the dust, dander and large pollens from the air in our homes is our goal while our budget is also an important consideration.

Cheap air purifiers have flooded the marketplace but most of them quickly end up sitting unused in a corner or a closet. They were too noisy or didn't provide any noticeable benefits. You may not have been able to locate replacement filters or the filters might cost more than you were willing to pay to keep a cheap unit operational.

The Alen T300 air purifier provides quality air cleaning for the normal homeowner at a reasonable price. The tower design allowed the unit to be comfortably placed in an inconspicuous corner of the room and the HEPA filter technology is combined with odor control.

You expect an air purifier to clean the air of particles but also to clear the air and make it smell fresh when you breathe it in. It's hard to think of your room air as improved by an air purifier if you can still smell last night's fish dinner.

The Alen T300 air purifier is a good choice for those who live in an area where a dry climate causes a high level of dust in the air and for those who live with pets in their homes.

Filtration System

The Alen T300 air purifier claims to remove 93% of airborne particles, For basic air cleaning, this is sufficient but this will not catch all of the particulates that might be in your room air. True HEPA filters remove 99.97% of particulates but are more costly to purchase and the filter replacement costs can be high.

Alen air purifiers provide a cost effective alternative for most homeowners. Like more expensive air purifiers on the market, Alen combines filters to enhance the efficiency of the units.

An activated carbon filter provides odor relief as carbon is known for its ability to attract and hold odor particles to provide air that smells clean. A built-in ionizer can be manually turned off and on.

The ionizer produces negative ions and the byproduct ozone which can result has been a hotly debated topic recently in health circles. The bonus of an ionizer is that the ionized air has the crisp, clean scent of air outdoors just after a rainstorm has passed.

Lighting is a natural ionizer and produces ozone that is quickly dissipated outdoors. Most ionizers included in good air purifiers do not produce ozone at a level that could post a health hazard.

Health experts agree but point to a lack of ability to measure the ozone produced by a specific air purifier and that is the focus of their concern. Ozone has an air cleaning property as it is used by professionals to remove heavy odors of fires and ash and is known to kill mold spores.

A UV lamp in the Alen T300 air purifier is meant to kill bacteria which are highly susceptible to ultraviolet light. HEPA filters remove smaller particulates and are known to be effect air cleaners. This model claims four air changes per hour in a room which is sufficient for the average home. Replacement filters are reasonably priced and advanced filters for odor control are available should they be needed.

Other Features

The Alen T300 air purifier has a fan with four speed settings. The highest setting produces a noise level that might not be acceptable when the room is occupied. However, this high level can be very effective at cleaning the room's air while you are away from home or out of the room. The lower fan levels are much quieter and can maintain the air quality while the room is in use.

A 12 hour timer allows you to set the air purifier to begin operating to clean the air in the room before you get home from work or before you wake in the morning. An indicator on the tower lets you know when it's time to replace filters and the controls are easy to use with a digital display.

Capacity

The Alen T300 air purifier will clean the air in a room up to 300 square feet but will perform at optimal capacity for rooms up to 225 square feet. The unit weighs only 12 pounds and is 11"x9"x28" in size.

The tower style uses little floor space and provides for inconspicuous placement. Depending on the fan speed used, the unit uses 20W to 65W of electrical power when in operation. When filters are changed as needed, this air purifier carries a lifetime warranty.

Consumer Comments

Buyers with problems of dust and pet dander have been very positive about the air cleaning capacity of the Alen T300 air purifier. They report significant improvement in the indoor air very quickly after buying this air purifier.

Some problems have been reported by consumer who found it difficult to change the UV lamps as the instructions for the process do not seem to work as described. Other negative comments have been due to frequent filter changes being required.

If a unit is used in an open room filter changes will be required on a more frequent basis. Using the Alen T300 air purifier in a room that can be closed off from other areas of the home will reduce the need for frequent filter replacement.
