If yes, you will appreciate Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier.

This air purifier comes in a compact and stylish form which gives you more options to keep it in a small place in your home.

The amazing part?

It has an in-built smart technology that monitors everything about the air purifier so that you do not have to remember things like changing the filter and so on.

The smart technology present in Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier saves you lots of energy. Whenever it detects pollutants like pollen and pet dander, the fan present in the purifier adjusts itself. In case, Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is running for more than half an hour without detecting any pollution, the fan automatically stops functioning automatically. This way it helps in saving your electricity bill.

It has an air quality indicator that utilizes particle sensor technology. It alters colors depending on the air quality. There is yet another indicator for the filter. It lights up to know when exactly is the time to change the carbon filter. (Usually, it is every six months). This saves you the time of keeping track of your filters.

It utilizes a four-stage filtration system, including:

  1. Pre-filter (to capture large particles like big pieces of dust, hair, and fur);
  2. Activated Carbon Filter (for small particles like odors and gases);
  3. True HEPA Filter (for contaminants of micro size like mold spores, dust mites, pet dander, and allergens);
  4. Vital Ionizer (An alternate ionizer utilizing negative ions to make the harmful particles heavier and easy to catch for rest of the filtration system)

The great news is that this air purifier makes four air changes on an hourly basis.

The end result?

The air in the room runs through the filter once every fifteen minutes. It also has an eco mode to save energy. It is even possible for you to set a timer to turn off the air purifier after 1, 4, or 8 hours, depending on your requirement. All in all, Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is one of the best air purifiers available in the market today!

Review the Product

Air Cleaning Performance: sssss

The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is an above-average performer when it comes to air cleaning.

Reason?

When we placed it into our smoky, 350 square feet testing room it was able to get rid of 99.32% of the airborne particles within the first half hour. This is one of the swiftest cleaning times that we have observed during our testing. There are only a few air purifiers that can better this air cleaning performance. After an hour it was able to up this figure to 99.84% reduction, by far the most by any air purifier.

The CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) of Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is 240 (on the higher side) which gives enough power for most rooms of a maximum 360 square feet. Although when it comes to removing odors, Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier was half as efficient.

Noise Quality: sssss

Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier also ranks amongst the best when it comes to being the quietest operator. While it is on high setting, the air purifier produces a medium-range hum which is somewhat loud. But, that seemingly fades away in the background when you listen to music or watch television. In the bedroom, it might sound like a white noise machine. But, when you compare it with other reputed air purifier brands, Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is much ahead.

When you put it on medium setting, this deep hum becomes silent but is still noticeable. It seems like a quiet hum coming from your refrigerator. In the low setting, Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier becomes virtually silent. You might forget about the air purifier while you are sitting quietly and reading a book.

So, if you are looking for an air purifier that is nearly silent Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is one of the best options available in the market.

User Friendliness: sssss

The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is one of the most user-friendly air purifiers available in the market. It has a clean interface with no frills at all. There are a number of buttons available on top of the product that helps you select the appropriate fan speed, turn on and off the ionizer, and set 1, 4, or 8 off-timer.

The fan settings available are low, medium, high, and eco. It also has an in-built air quality meter that monitors the quality of the air and then switches off the air purifier if there is no air pollutant. The other great thing is that it weighs only 5.44 Kgs which although is not very light but is easy to carry thanks to the carrying handles present in the air purifier.

Price: sssss

The price of Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is pretty high compared to other branded air purifiers. Despite this fact, we found that it was actually one of the most efficient models using only 0.01 kWh of electricity on an hourly basis of operation. This computes to approximately $ 5.26 on a yearly basis in most homes.

But, when it comes to its replacement filters they are somewhat pricey. It costs around $ 60 but if you are smart enough it is possible to get it at a reasonable price. The list price of the air purifier is $ 230 which is more than the average air purifier available in the market. So, in case you want to get Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier you need to pay a little more.

Overall Value Derived: sssss

You can very well adjudge from the ratings that we have given that Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is one of the top performers in each of the categories that we have described. Generally, it is appropriate for a product of this caliber to ask for a premium price for the performance it delivers. Sure the $ 230 price is a bit too high. But, a lot of these costs are upfront. Once you make the initial investment, in the long run, you will feel that you have made the right choice to get a high-end performance.

“HOW DOES IT COMPARE?”

GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier

The GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier is equipped with 4-stage filtration system: Pre-filter (activated carbon), Charcoal filter, True HEPA filter, and UV-C filter. While Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is also equipped with 4-stage filtration system: Pre-filter, Carbon filter, True HEPA filter, and Ionizer. It differs in the process.

Although both Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier and GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier use carbon filters to reduce odors. In GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier there is the Titanium Dioxide activated by the UV-C light that assists in getting rid of odors by decomposing odor molecules from different sources. While Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier contains an ionizer stage which assists in getting rid of pollutants like dust more effectively to freshen the air.

Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier

The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier and Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier have similar filtering systems. Both have four-step filtering systems using micro-mesh, activated carbon, HEPA filter, and an ionizer. But, the point of differentiation starts with the fact that Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier has a more powerfully activated carbon filter.

Due to the thickness of the filter, it does an amazing job of scrubbing the bad smells. Another point of difference is the price. The Rabbit Air BioGS 2.0 Ultra Quiet HEPA Air Purifier is approximately $ 150 expensive than Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier. The filters are also more expensive, but the positive part is that they need to be cleaned less frequently.

LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier

LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier has same qualities as Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier. But, there are certain points of difference too. Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier employs a vital Ionizer to release negative ions in the air to improve the air quality of the room. While LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier does not have any UV or Ion features.

If you wish to protect the Earth’s ozone layer then LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is the better option of the two. But, if you are looking at overall purity and quality, then Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier is a better option.

LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier has an impressive 3-stage filtration system: a Fine Preliminary Filter (to trap pet dander, fungi, mold etc.), the True HEPA filter (to filter out pollen, particles, and dust mites as small as 0.3 microns), and Activated Carbon filter (to eliminate smoke, odors, and other smell that plague your home).

While Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier uses a 4-stage filtration system: Pre-filter (to capture large particles like big pieces of dust, hair, and fur), Activated Carbon Filter (for small particles like odors and gases), True HEPA Filter (for contaminants of micro size like mold spores, dust mites, pet dander, and allergens), and Vital Ionizer (An alternate ionizer utilizing negative ions to make the harmful particles heavier and easy to catch for rest of the filtration system).

LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier has some advanced features that set it apart from other branded air purifiers like an air quality indicator, a smart auto mode, a sleep mode, and finally the timer function. While Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier also has some advanced features like particles sensing technology, energy saving feature, and finally a filter change indicator.

Both the air purifier brands have their own unique special features, Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier has a slight edge over LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier as it lowers your energy bill, and not to forget the particle sensors to ensure that the air within your home is as clean as possible.
