Regular price

Sale price

Info: 1 Air Purifier; Includes Combination Particle/Smoke Filter and an "Arctic Trail" Pre-Filter

New! This latest addition to our Blueair family of air purifiers offers a terrific combination of proven performance and ease of operation at a nice price point for those with mid-size to fairly large rooms. It's comparable to the Blue Pure 411 in being light and easy to move around, with a relatively small form-factor and a 360 degree air intake and a vertical output, which makes it quite flexible in where you can put it, but the 311 Auto features much larger capacity and performance specs. S&H included to most locations in Canada.

Product Notes:

Wirecutter characterized the Blueair 311 Auto as having "Top performance, pleasing form" in its 2021 edition of "The 8 Best Air Purifiers"

Just like its extremely well-reviewed bigger brother the Blueair 211+, the Blue 311 Auto draws virtually all the bad stuff out of the air so you don't have to breathe it in, with a Clean Air Delivery Rate far exceeding the minimum performance thresholds recommended by experts (which is at least 118 cubic feet per minute for the lowest measure, in a small to mid-sized room; this one's lowest measure is over twice that, at 244 cfm). It's dead simple to activate (just press the start button on top to launch it into 'Auto' mode), economical to operate, ultra-quiet on its lowest setting, and constantly monitors and gives a real-time indication of your room's current air-quality.

For those with 'normal' sized rooms, the Blue Pure 311 Auto Air Purifier really hits the sweet spot between the similarly shaped cylindrical 411 units which are better suited to smaller rooms, and the 211 and 121 models which have a much larger capacity than most actual rooms and offices need.

Like the other Blue Pure models, when placed in in room within its capacity ratings, the Blueair 311 is able to replace the entire volume of air every twelve minutes to make it virtually contaminant-free, plus it also has a built in air-quality sensor to enable it to turn the fan speed up or down as needed, to conserve energy. Blueair has also redesigned the reusable fabric filters to incorporate a Velcro-style fastener on the back which can be quickly unfastened not only for the purpose of cleaning or replacing (some prefer different colours in different rooms) but also to enclose any unneeded length of the power cord.

Prefilter Colours for Blue Pure 311 Auto

Colours

The colour of the bottom half of these Blueair 311 units is determined by the outer prefilter which covers the exterior of their base. The new models ship with a gray filter in an "Arctic Trail" tweed pattern. Several other colours are being produced for this model (which are shown here and at the end of the initial product video), which are sold separately as: Blue Pure 311 Auto Pre-Filters.

Main Replacement Filter for Blue Pure 311 Auto

Filter Type: The 311 Auto uses a two-in-one or combination particle and carbon filter: with the corrugated outer white part being a gradient, structured filter made with thermally bonded fibres containing polypropylene and polyethylene, which have anti-bacterial properties and resist shedding, and are free of chemicals and binders; and its inner, black part being an active carbon sheet, to help reduce odours and gaseous matter. Together, they can remove a great deal of annoying household odours, chemicals, and gases, as well as 99.97% of airborne particles, like pollen, dust, viruses, and more. The HEPASilent technology in Blueair machines is capable of catching particles down to just 0.1 microns in size (which can included bacteria, viruses, and microplastics) in addition to removing larger particulates that aggravate allergies such pet dander, dust, pollen, and smoke.
