Product Notes:

More Clean Air - Less Energy - Less Noise

S&H included to most locations in Canada. Due to increased demand, delivery of some Blueair products is currently delayed. Pre-order now to be included the next shipment as soon as product becomes available (exact date unknown, November delivery expected).

Unless you live or work in a huge open space or have severe allergies or asthma, why spend hundreds more for the initial machine and ongoing filter costs to purify the air in your individual rooms or working spaces when the Blue Pure 411 can be more than adequate for your needs?

Even if you live in a large home totaling thousands of square feet, you may not need a large, expensive air purifier with lots of fancy features when each of the individual rooms you actually spend time in are much less than 200 square feet (which might be a square room with 14 foot walls, e.g., or a rectangular one with 11 x 18 ft. walls)? The 411 is officially rated to be able to dramatically reduce the pollutants and odors in rooms up to 161 sq. ft., for a fraction of the cost of some of its competitors.

Wirecutter Pick

That's why Wirecutter picked the Pure 411 as a top budget pick one year and continues to recommend it, noting it performs well for a small-space purifier, it's much cheaper to own and operate (and more attractive!) than comparable models, and is exceptionally energy efficient.

Like its tremendously popular bigger brother, the BLUE Pure 211+, the BLUE Pure 411 uses three stages of mechanical filtration – a fabric filter on the outside to trap larger particles such as dust; a particle filter in the middle to capture much smaller contaminants like pollen, mold, or bacteria; and an activated carbon sheet inside that to reduce light household odors or smoke – supplemented with electrostatic technology (it incorporates a small ionic Particle Charging Chamber to charge the particles in the incoming air to make them far more likely to stay adhered to the filter's walls, but without releasing any ozone into the room). And although neither of these models have true HEPA filters (which are designed to trap 99.97% of particles down to the 1 micron level), they do nearly as well, by removing 99%, and cost significantly less. (Replacement filters for the BluePure 411 are available here and currently retail for about $40 each.) Those with severe allergies who would like a genuine HEPA filter to capture that final 0.97% still have plenty of other options to choose from here at Aviva, however, including both from Blueair and from Airpura.

Prefilter

The colour of the bottom of these units is determined by the fabric prefilter which stretches over the mesh grill covering the main filter. The unit ships initially with both the signature "Diva Blue" colour AND a bonus 'Dark Shadow' grey-coloured one, and those fabric prefilters are also produced in three other colours: pink, yellow, and light gray. These prefilters are designed to last indefinitely, without needing replacing: simply vacuum them every couple weeks or so when you see them accumulating a lot of dust or hair, etc., and they can also be machine washed.

Easy to Use

The 411 is extremely simple to operate: just press the big button on top once to turn it on to the lowest speed (when it's almost too quiet to hear, unless you're right on top of it); then again to go on Medium speed; or a third time to go on High; and one more time to turn it off. As you do so, there will be one, two, or three semi-circles of white light appearing in the middle of the button indicating the speed level, with LED lights which will dim to only 10% of the original level seven seconds after the button was pressed. After about six months, that button will also first glow orange and then red to indicate when it is time to change the main filter.

Portable

At a little under 17 inches high and 8 inches in diameter, the 411 is small enough and certainly light enough (less than 3-1/2 lbs!) to move from room to room. You could rotate it from room to room in a home or apartment, running it on high speed during the day, and then return it to your bedroom to run on medium or low speed at night, if you prefer a lower noise level then. But for those who do like to sleep with white noise, it may of interest that this unit has a memory feature, such that if there is a power outage, it will turn itself on again to the same fan speed setting once the power is restored.
