Review the Product

Air Cleaning Performance: sssss

The LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is at best a below-average performer when it comes to air cleaning.

Reason?

When we placed it into our smoky, 86 square feet testing room it took LEVOIT LV-H132 approximately an hour to remove 77% of the airborne particles. But, after an hour the number rose to 94%.

This goes to show that LEVOIT LV-H132 is specifically for smaller rooms of approximately 86 square feet. In case, you have a small bedroom this air purifier might work for you.

Noise Quality: sssss

This is the strong point of LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier. It produces a noise which is nearly undetectable when you keep it on its lowest setting. In medium and high setting, it offers a low-pitched hum which is similar to the sound of a normal fan. If quietness of noise is one of the basic criteria for you to make the buying decision then LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is one of the preferred choices available in our country.

User Friendliness: sssss

LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier provides at best average user experience. Although, there are certain positive points too. It consists of a very simple set of controls with a power button. There is also a button to select between three different fan speeds. You can even use a button to turn on and off the LED night light. The last thing is there is a light indicator which turns on when the filter needs to be changed.

These are really all that is required. But, if they would have included certain special features like an automatic off timer and remote control it would have been icing on the cake.

Not to forget: LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is extremely compact and light in weight of just 2.94 Kg. This makes it easier to move. The problem is its cylindrical shape which makes it difficult to grip.

Price: sssss

LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is a cost-effective option. It comes with a relatively nominal start price of $ 90 with an affordable cost of $ 15 for replacement filters, and fairly efficient electricity usage of just 0.015kWh per hour. The total estimated lifetime cost of the air purifier comes to $ 279 assuming the estimated lifespan of LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier to be of 5-years. LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is one of the most lucrative options available in the market when it comes to procuring an air purifier at a reasonable price.

Overall Value Derived: sssss

Although LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier is reasonably priced of $ 90, we will not call it a particularly good value product. In case, you do not mind paying an extra $ 10, you can get a better-branded air purifier with better performance in removing airborne particles.

“HOW DOES IT COMPARE?”

Honeywell HPA300 Air Purifier

The most obvious difference between LEVOIT LV-H132 and Honeywell HPA300 is the shape and color of both these air purifiers. While Honeywell HPA300 is V-shaped and black, the LEVOIT LV-H132 is bent and white.

Continue reading: When it comes to filtration, they are more or less similar in style and maintenance.

Honeywell HPA300 has two filters, namely a True HEPA and a pre-filter. Both of which need to be replaced rather than washed, much like LEVOIT LV-H132. LEVOIT LV-H132 has more complete filtration and does an excellent job of reducing allergy symptoms and dust.

Winix 5500-2 Air Purifier

GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier

The price of GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier is quite similar to LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier. But, there are still some key differentiating points. The first one being, GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier instead of 3 filters has 2 filters namely, a HEPA filter and a pre-filter with carbon. Not to forget the UV-C light. The UV-C light assists in killing bacteria and airborne germs.

The other difference is GermGuardian AC4825 UV Air Purifier is taller and larger in dimension when compared to LEVOIT LV-H132 Air Purifier, albeit with similar weight.
