Alen Breathesmart 75i | Detailed review

The BreatheSmart 75i is the newest model in Alen’s popular line of air purifiers. It features a lowering noise level and improved HEPA filter quality for removing smaller particles that can cause illness or democratize your home with harmful chemicals from larger rooms like those found near windowsills where natural light enters but no fresh outside breezes enter!

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i is the biggest and most powerful air purifier from Alen. This quiet giant can cleanse up to 2,000 square feet of space. According to a spec-by-spec analysis of 529 air purifiers, the Alen BreatheSmart 75i is the best overall air purifier in 2022.

Design 

The BreatheSmart 75i is a powerful air purifier that is just over two feet high and weighs about 27 pounds. It is sleek and low-profile, making blending into your home’s decor easier. There are different finish options to choose from, so you can match the unit with your home’s style.

The air intake vents are on the sides of the purifier, so you can put it against a wall. It’s easy to move because it has small wheels on the back and a hidden handle.

Our favorite design aspect of this computer is the customizable front panel. This lets you choose a design that matches your furniture. You can choose from designs like marble, graphite, and white-washed wood.

Usability

The BreatheSmart purifier has a simple interface with seven buttons for easy programming.

You can turn on and off the ionizer with one button and the auto mode setting. Pressing the speed button lets you cycle through all five fan settings to set the power output manually. You can also engage the timer button with one press.

There are other controls too, like a button to activate the child lock. This is useful if you have kids and they keep hitting the buttons on accident.

There are three small lights on top of the filter button. They will tell you when the air filter is clean or needs to be replaced. You can reset the countdown by holding this button-down. The power switch is in the center of the control panel. The circular indicator light around the button tells you how pure your air is. Blue means excellent quality, and purple means very unhealthy air.

There’s a Wi-Fi symbol in the corner. These units don’t have Wi-Fi. They also don’t work with controllers. This is probably a feature that was never put into the final product.

Aside from this one confusing thing, the BreatheSmart is really easy to use and simple.

Filters

This air purifier has WhisperMax technology, so you won’t hear it cleaning the air every 30 minutes. It uses pink noise, which is less abrasive than white noise. It offers minimal disruptions throughout your day and night. The filter will last at least a year, so you can feel consistently protected from allergens, viruses, asthma triggers, and smoke. The BreatheSmart 75i can undoubtedly improve your and your family’s health with true HEPA, self-adjusted cleaning power, and a lifetime warranty.

We look at the quantity and quality of air filters when deciding how good an air purifier is. The Alen BreatheSmart 75i has the typical Alen 3-stage air cleaning system. However, it also has a True HEPA air purifier, which means it can remove more particles from the air.

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i has been redesigned to include a Heavy Odor filter. This filter can remove the smells from everyday activities, like smelly kids/teenagers, kitchen garbage, and more. The filters are the most important part of an air purifier. This is as true for the Alen BreatheSmart 75i as for any other air purifier. While most air purifiers use several layers of generic filters, Alen uses superior all-in-one filters that combine:

Alen BreatheSmart 75i True HEPA Antimicrobial Filtration System

H13 True HEPA filters are the best type of filter for removing air particulates. They are able to remove particles that are 3x smaller than other types of filters (0.1-micron), and they are also 99.99% efficient.

The next level of HEPA filter will improve the first Pure, with an addition of an Activated Carbon filter to deal with household odors and chemicals. This air filter is necessary for people who are sensitive to VOCs.

Activated carbon filters are designed to absorb bad smells. This type of filter uses charcoal to capture smells like cigarette smoke, cooking smells, and diaper smells.

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i has a unique design that is specifically made for that model. All of the filters include a True H13 HEPA filter and have antimicrobial protection. The difference between the filters is primarily in the amount of activated carbon and size.

 Pure, Fresh, Pet, Heavy Odor Filters

 Pet air filter

The Pet air filter uses Alen’s patented Molecular Conversion Powder to ensure that heavy pet odors are destroyed at a molecular level.

The Alen BreatheSmart air filtration system seems to work the best against all types of allergens. As a result, Alen hasn’t changed much from the formula of success for this brand. The Alen BreatheSmart 75i uses new plastic filter frames with detachable pre-filter for easy cleaning.

Some people say that the Alen BreatheSmart 75i air purifier true HEPA filter is better than the Rabbit Air MinusA2 or Blue Pure 121. But we don’t believe those claims. We tested these three purifiers to see how they work in a room of 300 square feet.

We tested two air purifiers, the Rabbit Air MinusA2 and the AIRMEGA 400S, to see how they compare to the Alen BreatheSmart 75i.

All three air purifiers are worth the money you pay for them because they can trap 99.97% of particles that are as small as 0.3 microns. This is better than the previous Alen BreatheSmart, which only trapped 99.92% of particles.

There is no need to tell that the Alen BreatheSmart 75i air purifier is the best one this company has. But the cost of the True HEPA air filter has increased, too. For the standard Pure filter (the B7-Pure), the cost is $99. You need to pay $139 for the Pet (B7-MP-Pet) and Heavy Odor (B7-MP-Odor) air filters.

Air performance

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i is a powerful air purifier that can clean large areas. With 1300 square feet of room coverage, this purifier can handle even the largest rooms. And on the lowest speed setting, it can still clean a room of 350 square feet quickly and easily.

For a room that is 1300 square feet, this air purifier will clean the air twice an hour. However, if your room is much smaller than 1300 square feet, you will enjoy the new fresh air every 12 minutes.

The CADR of the Alen BreatheSmart 75i is 355 Dust/ 350 Smoke/ 400 Pollen (cfm). I must acknowledge that the fan power is good, but it is still quite insufficient for the actual room coverage of 1300 square feet.

This fan power is weaker than the trio of Dyson Pure Cool Link, Dyson Pure Hot+Cool, and Dyson Pure Cool Tower. This is because the Dyson air purifiers are designed to be both cooling fans and air purifiers. The CADR rating only tells you how quickly the air purifier can clean the air in your room. It doesn’t tell you how well the air purifier works.

Noise 

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i is extremely quiet, especially for a cleaner with a True HEPA core. The noise level at the lowest setting is only 25 decibels, which is quieter than the Rabbit Air MinusA2. In fact, the MinusA2 is now the most silent air purifier in the world. To help you understand how quiet it is, it is just about as loud as a rural area at night time.

This noise level is much quieter than a conversation you would have at home. In fact, it is so quiet that you probably won’t even notice it.

And don’t forget the wonderful pink noise frequency of this Alen BreatheSmart 75i. Pink noise consists of different frequencies, but the volume decreases whenever the frequency doubles. As a result, it will help you sleep faster or increase your productivity and creativity at work.

Durability

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i air purifier is the latest model and is really good. It is a reasonable size, 18.5 x 27 x 11.5 inches, and it has a modern design. You can change the look of the air purifier by using different panels.

This air purifier is on the heavier (27 pounds) side, but it’s not impossible to carry. It has air inlets on the sides and a back handle to help with portability. The fit is tight, so there won’t be any harmful byproducts released. Plus, it’s CARB-approved and ozone-safe. Alen also guarantees reliability with a lifetime warranty.

The airflow delivery rate is from 150 cfm to a max of 286 cfm (turbo speed). On the other hand, CADR is estimated to be around 300 cfm for dust, pollen, and smoke. The vacuum cleaner works great in living rooms, lounges, bedrooms, basements, garages, kitchens, and playrooms.

Energy efficiency

This Alen purifier uses only about 45 watts of energy very energy-efficient, even at its highest setting. As their website points out, this is less than the power used by a lightbulb. If you plan to keep your purifier running consistently and keep the air quality in your home clean, it will only need 1.8 watts of electricity to run at its lowest speed, it’s important to consider how efficient it is in terms of energy consumption.

The BreatheSmart 75i is an Energy Star-certified air purifier with multiple power-saving modes, including auto mode. This mode adjusts the fan output based on the air quality in the room. The timer mode is perfect for freshening the air after cooking disasters or other smelly accidents.

Price & Value.

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i air purifier costs between $700 and $800. This may seem expensive, especially compared to the $100 air purifiers available. But there are several reasons why you might want to consider spending the extra money on this particular model.

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i is a great value because it can clean the air in your home as effectively as 4-5 small $100 air purifiers. This air purifier is much better than any other one that is less than $500.

If you were to replace the filters in each $100 unit every year, it would cost about $100/year for each unit. That’s a total of $500 for replacement filters. Alternatively, you could purchase the Alen BreatheSmart 75i replacement filter, which would cost $130.

The Alen BreatheSmart 75i is about $750 before the addon panels and filter upgrades are accounted for. That’s about a $100 more premium over the Alen BreatheSmart Classic for a slight performance boost and WiFi-enabled feature.

The all-in-one filter set is convenient to replace, and at a reasonable under 100 price, there is no option to replace them individually. We think the air filtration performance is worth the cost, but you could also consider cheaper Alen BreatheSmart alternatives.

User Experience 

Some people who have an Alen air purifier decided to try the 75i to see if it was better than the other ones. They liked the BreatheSmart and BreatheSmart45i, but most people who bought the 75i found that it had better room coverage and quieter features. They also like the performance, which includes enough air pollution removal, Smart capabilities, and a touch display.

Customers also said that the BreatheSmart 75i customer service team was helpful. If there were any problems with the air purifier, they would help. Alen offers a 60-Day Love, Or Return It promise, so you can be sure that you are satisfied with your purchase. Plus, there’s a lifetime warranty, so you know that you’re covered if anything goes wrong.
