Here are the key differences of the Blueair Sense+ and the Blueair Pro M.
Appearance, Size, and Weight
Let’s first talk about the obvious differences in appearance.
The Blueair Sense+ is taller by 2 inches, slimmer by 3 inches, and less wider by 1.5 inches. Based on the data provided by Blueair, the Sense+ is also lighter by 2 lbs. It weighs 24 lbs (or 11 kg). In comparison, the Pro M weighs 26 lbs. (or 12 kg).
When it comes to color choices, the Sense+ gives you 9 options to choose from, which include non-black colors such as midnight blue, leaf green, and ruby red. The Pro M, on the other hand, doesn’t have much choices when it comes to color. It has a white-black exterior.
Room Size and CADR Rating
Even though the Pro M is the smallest of the Pro family, it still has better room coverage area than the Sense+. It can cover spaces of up to 390 sq. ft. while the Sense+ air purifier covers up to 186 sq. ft. only.
Also, the Pro M has a better CADR rating than the Pro M? By how much? More than two times.
One of the advantage of the Sense+ over the Blueair Pro M is that you can adjust the settings both wirelessly and manually. Using the Blueair Friend app, you can control and adjust the airflow speed, LED light, child lock, and night mode features through your smartphone.
The Pro M doesn’t have this functionality. However, what it has that the Sense+ lacks is the Blueair Air Intelligence Module (AIM), an optional accessory that allows you to set the unit to auto mode. When it’s on, the AIM tests the air quality of your home, and then it automatically adjusts the speed setting based on what it has detected.
Our Final Word: Blueair Sense+ vs Pro M
Which of these Blueair air purifier should you choose? Here’s our recommendation.
Get the Blueair Pro M. It has a wider coverage area, a better CADR rating, and an optional accessory called AIM (Air Intelligence Module). It’s an additional purchase, but it detects air quality and adjusts the speed so that the setting is exactly what you need.
