With winter finally here and a cold wind blowing all around, you’ll probably be keeping your windows for much of the next couple months. But it can get a bit stuffy indoors as a result, and when you’re stuck at home you’d at least like to breathe clean air, right? That’s what makes an air purifier such a good buy — it’ll clear your room of all that annoying dust flying around, weird cooking smells, cigarette smoke, pet odors and even radiator funk (if you live in an older apartment, you know what I’m talking about). And right now you can snag an excellent Blueair purifier from Amazon for up to 21 percent off!
Once you put one together — which is super easy — all you need to do is tap the top once, twice, three times depending on fast you need it to clean the air. The first setting is so quiet you won’t even realize it’s on. Even at the higher speeds there's only just a nice steady hum, which means you can put this in a baby’s room as a white-noise machine. The colorful outer pre-filter can be removed and popped in a washer, easy as pie. Also great: You can even buy extras in other colors for a customized look! As for the inner filter? Well, I’ve had my purifier for three years now, and I only just had to change it now. And, best of all, Blueair purifiers consume almost no power — less than a light bulb! Let's have a closer look, shall we?
Purifiers work best when they're paired with the right-sized area. If you're looking to clean the air in a bedroom, study or playroom, the Pure 411 is a perfect fit. It will completely filter the air in a 9' × 12' room nearly five times an hour. Oh, and that filtering? The Blue Pure 411 removes 99.97 percent of airborne particles (like pollen, dust, and viruses) as small as 0.1 micron. It also features an Intuitive Auto mode, which acts on the data it receives from the 411's particle sensor to adjust the power level in real time.
No wonder the 411 has garnered over 3,700 five-star reviews, like this one: "I love everything about this unit. It's quiet, to the point you can't tell it's on when on low, or if auto sets it that way.... Plug it in, set it to auto, and fah-get about it! I use it in my home office, as I work from home and spend hours there."
And it's even up to tougher jobs, as this customer out west attested: "When I need to keep my windows closed, it helps with the smoke during fire season. I couldn’t survive without it."
If you're looking for a purifier that can tackle a larger area like a living room or den, the Blue Pure 311 is more than enough for the job. It can completely clean a 388 square foot room every 12 minutes, getting rid of pesky dust, smoke or cooking smells before you've even finished eating or cleaning. Wow!
Like its little brother, the 311 has received thousands of five-star raves on Amazon. "The operation is quiet and flawless, said one over-the-moon shopper. "Easy to use and seems to be quite effective at purifying the air in a given space."
"I bought this air purifier before taking on a home remodel/addition project in anticipation of increased dust," related another happy customer. "After some thorough research on purifiers, I went with Blueair and am happy I did!... I love the auto feature, and just leave mine on auto all the time - it's quite interesting to see what causes it to kick into med/high."
Speaking of kicking into gear: What are you waiting for? Jump on this deal and watch the winter fustiness in your house disappear!
