Alen Paralda Air Purifier
Are you looking for an air purifier that combines great functions with modern style? Not only does the Alen Paralda filter out harmful dust, pollen, and mold, but it reduces your energy use and has an eco-friendly, lead-free design. It is a leader in "green" design. It is safe for environment and produces no ozone. With a unique and compact design, the Paralda is a highly efficient HEPA style air purifier that is one of the most simple to operate and maintain. The Paralda pulls air through the back of the unit, circulates it through the filter, and releases the purified air out both sides of the machine. The HEPA style air filter in the Paralda air purifier has been tested to remove 99% of airborne particles like dust, pet dander, mold spores and pollen.
The Paralda has undergone several new design changes for 2012. The UV light has been removed and the filter changed to a Silver filter with HEPA style filtration and anti-microbial protection. The Silver filter should be more effective than the UV system. Additionally, a night light has been added to the front of the unit which can be turned on and off based on your preference. Now, you also have 4 replacement filter options: the Alen HEPA-Pure filter, the Alen HEPA-Fresh filter, the Alen HEPA-Silver filter (comes with the unit),and the Alen HEPA-OdorCell filter.
*Please note that the following air purifiers cannot be shipped to Canada: the Alen BreatheSmart, the Alen T500 Tower, and the Alen Paralda. They are not Canadian safety rated.

I been waiting to actually get this model for a while now, but now that it's hear, I'm really happy with it. I compared it to Blue Air Eco10 before buying, and honestly, I don't have the room for the Eco, nor did I want to go up any more in price. I really like this though. It's very quiet, looks nice in my living room, and does a great job in keeping down the dust and dog dander that my girlfriend is so allergic to. The UV lamp is a nice addition too. Replacing the filters twice a year isn't bad either, especially when it means a lifetime warranty!

Alen Paralda Air Purifier
With the Paralda, Alen has taken the green trend to the next level. Like others it consumes very little electricity, but what sets it apart is that none of the harmful substances found in many modern electronics are used in the Paralda. Visually appealing and lightweight, the Paralda offers excellent filtration and an industry best, lifetime warranty.
What I like about the Alen Paralda
The Paralda could very well be the most eco friendly air purifier on the market. It is EnergyStar rated and uses less electricity than most of the light bulbs in your home. You can literally operate this unit for pennies a day.
The control panel offers the same great features found in many of the Alen products. In addition to having a timer, filter change indicator, and speed setting indicator, the Paralda is programmable, much like a digital thermostat.
The Alen Paralda is aesthetically pleasing and will fit almost anywhere in your home. The translucent and bamboo colored housing gives the it an unobtrusive yet sleek appearance, and a narrow footprint means it can fit nearly anywhere. Lightweight and compact, the Alen Paralda weighs only 15 lbs. Moving it from room to room is a breeze, and it is small enough to fit nearly anywhere in your home.
Like all Alen air purifiers, the Paralda comes with a limited lifetime warranty. With proper filter replacement every six months, Alen ensures that should their product malfunction or ever fail due to workmanship or materials, you will be covered. This kind of peace of mind is unmatched in the industry.
What I do not like about the Alen Paralda
Though Alen claims the unit is rated for a room up to 400 sq. ft. you are likely best off using it in a medium to smaller room. Based on the CFM, the Alen Paralda will give you the recommended 5-6 air exchanges per hour in 12 x 12 rooms with a standard 8' ceiling.
The Alen Paralda air purifier is not the best unit for odor removal. The thin layer of activated carbon built into the standard HEPA style filter is a start but can handle only light levels of odor pollutants. Alen offers another filter to address this problem and can be purchased separately.
The Alen Paralda is an excellent unit, and for those most concerned about their impact on the environment, this unit is an excellent choice. For medium to small rooms the Paralda is a great fit. Eco conscious allergy and asthma sufferers who need excellent allergen filtration but do not have heavy smoke or odor control issues should consider the Paralda.
