Blue Pure 211 Design and Size
The Blue Pure 211 ushered in a new design direction for the company and its DNA runs strong within the Blue Pure 121. Thanks to a slightly shorter size, with only 20 inches in height (the Blue Pure 121 is 28 inches), this Blue Pure 211’s footprint is fractionally smaller and it is lighter but beyond that, changes appear slight.
Cover this Blue Pure 211 from back to front is a still a big fabric pre-filter with different colors (black, blue, yellow, gray and pink). Just like any member in the Blue family, there is no difference in price for each color selection.
This air purifier uses a similar design concept like most of the compact air purifiers at the moment, with a 360 Degree air intake to maximize the efficiency of the fan power. The air outlet will be found on top of the Blue Pure 211. With this design, this Blue Pure 211 is much more resembling the Levoit LV-H133.
All air purifiers under Blue family are really ease of use. You will only need one simple button to control this air purifier, right from the front of the Blue Pure 211.
Blue Pure 211 is an extremely lightweight air purifier. There is only 12.5 lbs for the item, and compared with others in the same low-range like Honeywell HPA300 or Blueair Classic 203 Slim (both with 24 lbs), the Blue Pure 211 is easy to move around your home.
The size of Blue Pure 411 is only 16.7 inches in height and 3.4 lbs in weight. This air purifier is the most lightweight air purifier at the moment, compared with other lightweight air purifiers like Levoit LV-H132 – 6 lbs and Honeywell HPA060 – 6.4 lbs.

Blue Pure 211 Filters
As the most important criteria to decide one air purifier’s power, we check the performance rating due to the materials of the filters and what types of air filters are used. With our Blue Pure 211 +, we will have a simple 3-stage air purification as below.
- Pre-filter – The fabric pre-filter of Blue Pure 211 is outside the air purifier and can catch the large particles. This pre-filter is washable or vacuumable.
- Particle filter – Instead of using a True HEPA filter, Blue Pure 211 uses a polypropylene fibers filter to help capture 99% of all allergens like dust, dust mites, pet dander, pollen and fungi (HEPA technology).
- Activated Carbon Filter – The Activated Carbon filter is added inside the Particle filter and effective against smoke, odors, gases and VOCs.
Without a True HEPA filter, Blue Pure 211 is still powerful with an unique Particle Filter with HEPASilent technology, to combine both mechanical and electrostatic filtration at one. This technology enables the Blue Pure 211 to match the performance rating from any HEPA air purifiers.
Moreover, the polypropylene fibers from this air purifier are free of chemicals and naturally anti-bacterial. Also, not like the cheap air purifier, this Particle filter is recyclable as plastic.
However, the filter cost from this air purifier is a huge jump from the smaller Blue Pure 411, with a total cost of $59. With better performance, the filter cost of Coway AP-1512HH is only $45, and raise a question why you still need to cling with this Blue Pure 211.

Blue Pure 211 Room Coverage
Blue Pure 211 is really powerful for its size, and can cover up to 540 sq ft with no problem. This room coverage is indeed the same with the flagship of Levoit brand – the Levoit LV-H133, which costs more than $100.
The ACH of Blue Pure 211 is a massive 5X rating. As a well-known brand for making high quality German-engineered fan, it’s not surprise that all of Blueair’s products will have high air changes per hour rating.

Blue Pure 211 Sound
Just like the name implied, HEPASilent technology helps reduce the noise level significantly from all Blueair air purifier. That’s why Blueair can achieve such noise level even with a huge and powerful fan. In the case of Blue Pure 211, with a more powerful fan than even the Honeywell HPA300, the result of its noise level is truly impressive.
We will have a common noise level from 31 to 56 db within this 3-fan speed air purifier. A Levoit LV-H133 is a lot quieter, but with a weaker fan performance, too.

Blue Pure 211 Power Consumption
One of our most FAQ is “Do air purifier use a lot of energy?” An air purifier is designed to run for a long time to be efficient. Therefore power consumption is always one important criteria when you decide to buy one air purifier.
