Technical specifications

The first stage is the washable pre-filter which can pick up large dust particles. The odor filter, which is also named activated carbon, is very effective at removing odors, such as smoke, paint fumes, pet odors and many more. In order to get rid of smaller particles of dust, it uses high-efficiency filters (HEPA) which can target all sorts of contaminants and pathogens that are at a microscopic level. The HEPA filters are a true innovation and are very useful for people who are dealing with respiratory problems, such as allergies or asthma.

Last but not least, the vital ion technology makes it easier to catch all sorts of particles, like pollen and dust. The process is fairly easy to understand: the ionizer releases negative ions which attach to dust and pollen, making it easier to reach the other filters. Having a purifier that uses the ion technology is very beneficial for your health as well. It has been proven that the negative ions that are being released into the air can decrease depression and anxiety. Other than that, they are also effective at removing bacteria, germs, and viruses that are found in the air.

Performance

This air cleaner delivers great results with every use but in addition to that, it’s very quiet. This aspect is the favorite of many customers who have used and are still using this model. If you keep it at a low setting, you will barely notice it. Some of the performance features are:

  • This unit is capable of filtering almost 268 cubic feet of air per minute and it uses a four-stage filtration system
  • The Coway AP-1512HH is energy efficient, in the sense that it uses less than 78 watts at the highest setting, while at the lowest setting it requires not more than 5 watts
  • It has a powerful fan which makes it appropriate for any type of rooms, although it may not perform as well in larger rooms

Convenience features

One of the most convenient and practical features is the air-quality sensor which monitors indoor pollutants. It then automatically adjusts the fan speed so that all the pollutants are entirely filtered. We like that you can set a timer to shut off the device after one, four or eight hours. This useful feature will also allow you to save energy and thus lower your energy monthly costs. In addition to that, the  purifier can enter standby mode if it doesn’t detect pollutants for 30 minutes. This way you can reduce the carbon footprint and make more money savings, by allowing the machine to take a needed break.
