Alen Corporation is based in Austin, Texas.
The air purifier in question is the relatively new Alen BreatheSmart FLEX. As you’d expect it comes with a HEPA filter that eliminates 99.7% of airborne particles.
Filters typically last 9-12 months — and just a heads up replacement air filters for the FLEX are pricier than the competition from $69-99 depending on the type (Allergies/Dust or Allergies/Dust + Pet Odors/Heavy Odors or Allergies/Dust +Mold/Bactria/Odors).
However, the ratings for this air purifier are universally outstanding, and the higher build quality and overall performance might justify the higher cost vs. the competition from the likes of Coway, Winix, Rabbit and Blue Air.

Even better, the Alen BreatheSmart Flexis is a stylish unit. Featuring an interchangeable face plate, you can buy optional colors and styles to match your decor. Keep in mind the one that comes with the $149 deal is white, which should be suitable for most rooms.

Need clean air for a larger room?
The Alen BreatheSmart FIT50 is also on sale. Featuring a larger filter and stronger fan, the FIT50 can clean 899 SqFt of space every 30 minutes. Amazon has this model on sale too.
A couple of missing things on the FLEX to point out for the sake of completeness:
- No ionizer (could be an advantage for those concerned about ozone)
- No auto air quality sensor (fan must be adjusted manually as needed)
- No smart home features (i.e. no wifi or app)
Consumer Reports rates Alan BreatheSmart air purifiers highly — the Classic is their top rated model scoring 85 and a CR recommendation.
At only $149 this small and powerful air purifier might be the best deal yet. Well worth considering if you’re looking to improve the air quality in your home.
