In our previous post, we covered the features and review of the Kent Eternal Air Purifier. With so many brands and models cropping up for air purifiers, its natural that you may feel confused. But, don’t fret because our reviews would help you in making an informed decision. In this review, we would be talking about the Kent Alps Air Purifier.
Kent water purifiers are among the BEST WATER PURIFIERS.
Kent Alps Air Purifier- Features

The Kent Alps Air Purifier is more or less the same in features and coverage as the Kent Eternal Air Purifier. It is not clear what is that differentiates the two. Why the company has two models with nearly the same price and specs, we couldn’t understand. Like for Eternal, we would not suggest you to go for this air purifier. The main reason being, no clear difference in specs between Eternal and Alps. The company product manuals are all ” Find and Replace” type where the word Eternal has been replaced with Alps. Such things do not look reliable. Also, there is no qir quality indicator as falsely mentioned. If you are still looking to buy an Air Purifier from Kent, then go for Kent Aura, although it is a scaled down model in terms of coverage area.
Fighting Air Pollution- Are you doing your bit?
Monsoons are nearing to its end and as winters approach, you can feel the same old pollution levels. The number of vehicles plying on the roads is increasing each day. No steps are being taken by the governments for waste disposal either, things would get worse and worse.
Its better to take charge of the things in your own hands. Do your bit for the environment and if you ever make your child write essays on pollution, practice what you preach in them. You must have made banners with the message “Say No to Plastic” and don’t know how many times governments have banned plastic bags. Did you ever help in enforcing the bans? Do you carry your own bag from home when venturing out for shopping? Do you not litter and contribute in making your country clean? If Yes, then I would not applaud, because its our duty. No big deal in doing this small a thing for our country. If No, then I would sincerely request you to tidy up your acts. Its not just our PM’s responsibility to make our country Swacch!
Some would say, we already pay taxes, why should we do all the things. I would say, you are already shouldering one responsibility, running away from this would only harm you and your family indirectly. Its a collective movement and all should strive to achieve a clean India goal.
