BreatheSmart Air Purifier w/ HEPA-OdorCell Filter
Definitely Helping With Allergens
I have this unit in my bedroom. I run it all night on the second fan speed. The white sound is actually soothing, and my nose and sinuses aren't anywhere near as swollen and stuffed as they used to be. I can breathe all night through my nose, so I'm not drooling all over my pillow. All in all, I'm feeling a lot better and sleeping a lot better. I like the unit itself. The only problem I see (hence the 4 star rating rather than a 5) is that the pre-filter comes off easily when cats stick their paws into the side intake vents and then it's hard to get it to stick on again since it gets full of cat fur that I can't get off. Overall, a relatively minor problem.

A Breathe of Fresh Air
After just one hour of operation, the air was as fresh and clean as in Montana. Wonderful!

removes the allergens in the room
The Alen Breathe Smart has allowed me to be in the house with out sneezing and coughing from the dust and pet dander. Works great and I do not have to worry about it. I just turn it on and it does an excellent job.

I'm chemical sensitive, & it works for me!
I bought this purifier after returning a purifier from different company,because I am chemically sensitive and the off gassing bothered me. So, My husband called Arlen and questioned them extensively about this purifier. They customer service rep knew his stuff, and knew about chemical sensitivity. He suggested this purifier without a carbon filter. He told my husband that the material is high grade plastic and does not off gas. Well, we bought it. And it is awesome. There was a very faint smell for about one week. (My husband didnt smell a thing, but I have a super sensitive nose and smell everything) Now, it smells like perfect pure air, and I love it. I am thrilled. I am the pickiest and fussiest consumer, and I give it an A+!

6 Months Use Update Review
In my original customer review of my BreatheSmart air purifiers I said I would post an update review after we had lived with our purifiers for a while and would share our experiences (good or bad). We've had our BreatheSmarts with the Silver filter (2 at home and 2 in the office) in use for 6 months now. Although I am still taking all of my other allergy and asthma medicines. I have only had to use a rescue inhaler twice since their arrival. On both occasions the electricity had gone out while I was on a trip and even though it had come back on while I was gone, certain appliances and electronics didn't turn themselves back on one of which was my BreatheSmarts. It happened once with the two units at my home and once with the two units at my office, both around the holidays. According to my neighbor the electricity at home had gone out briefly about 7 days before my return. Of course when I got home i couldn't understand why my breathing was so bad to the point of needing a rescue inhaler. After using my inhaler, I checked the BreatheSmart units only to find that both of them were completely off. Once the units were back on I've not needed to use my inhaler at all at home. In mid-January I left for a trade show and everyone was out of the office for about 5 days. When I got back to the office I had my first asthma attack in office since the BreatheSmarts arrived. The day I left for the show, the electric company was working on something behind our building. As I was leaving for the show they informed everyone in our building that the power was going to be down for about 20 mins. I didn't give it a thought since we were all going to be at the trade show anyway. What I forgot was that the BreatheSmarts would be off the full 5 days until we came back from the trade show. Once we came back from the trade show the office didn't smell as fresh as usual and I immediately had an asthma attack which surprised me since I've not needed my inhaler since the BreatheSmart units came into the office 6 months ago. Then I remembered since the electricity was turned off briefly that the BreatheSmart units were still off. I immediately turned them back on and have not had required a rescue inhaler even once since they've been back on. This confirmed the results I had when they first arrived. They are definitely making a big difference in our air quality both at home and in the office. By the way, I've attached a picture of what we vacuum off of our pre-filters every other week. And this is just the big gunk we can see. I can only imagine what the inside of the main filter looks like with all of the smaller stuff we can't see.
P.S. - The units that are in my home work and make a difference even though we have the windows and skylights open on warm days since we don't have air conditioning. This January we had wild fires in the Los Angeles metro area which put a lot of ash in the air to the point it rains down like little tiny snow flakes covering cars and coming in open windows, etc. In the past when this has occurred, the ash residue inside the house would be so thick on our counters and other hard surfaces that you could write your name in it. This January we had the first wild fire in the Los Angeles metro area since we've had our BreatheSmart purifiers in place. And as usual once again ash was in the air and for a couple of days gently raining down on everything like usual. And since the weather in L.A. for those days was in the mid 80's of course we had to leave the windows and skylights open. This year however, each day when we'd return home from work we didn't find the usual ash build up on the counters and hard surfaces like in the past. And this time even though ash was in the air and the windows where open I didn't suffer my usual asthma attacks. Don't get me wrong, these machines aren't "vacuum cleaners" that are going to clean all the dust off of the surfaces in your house, but they will clean the gunk out of your air to help you breathe better.

Seems to work great
Have had this for a month or so. Before I got it, i was coughing a lot and i thought it was the air quality. Within 3 days of having this unit, my coughing is almost non-existent. This is my experience. Try it and sees
