Benefits

The space saving design allows you to easily incorporate the filter into your space, whether in your home or your workplace. There are three fan speeds: low, medium and high, which let you get the exact amount of filtration that you need and ensures that the filter works in most conditions. There’s also a night light function with two levels of brightness, which offers convenience at night. The low noise produced by the filter means you can use it at night or at work without the sound interfering with your sleep or daily tasks.

This filter does not use ions or UV to operate, which means that it is a great choice for the environment as it doesn’t produce ozone like some other filters do. If you want an eco-friendly choice, this is definitely the air filter for you.

Ionic air purifier emits negatively charged ions into the atmosphere of a room. As a result, a small amount of ozone is produced. UV-C light systems will produce “photolytic” ozone when UV-C hits oxygen (O2) molecules. Ozone is an important part of the atmosphere, but ozone is harmful for the lungs at ground level. 

 

Maintenance

Like any air filter, this one requires a replacement filter every 6 months for optimal performance. Keeping the unit dust free and with a bit of clearance on the sides will also ensure proper function and prolong the lifespan of your air filter.

Check the filter’s colour to relief your concern on whether the device is purifying the air.

How it Works

“To be classified as such, “True HEPA” filters like Levoit’s must meet strict standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy, such as removing 99.97% of 0.3 micron particles. This includes tackling all kinds of contaminants, such as dust, mold spores, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and more.

The first Fine Preliminary Filter helps neutralize airborne bacteria, pet dander, mold, and fungi. The True HEPA Filter then traps dust mites, large particles, and pollen. The Activated Carbon Filter, the third stage of filtration, purifies various household odors such as cooking smells, pet odors, and cigarette smoke. Levoit air purifiers take in the pollutants, while you and your family breathe in the fresh results.”

Why use an air purifier?

The walls we use to shelter and protect us from the elements also trap airborne chemicals, gases, odour, dander, bacteria and particles. There is study suggests that our dwellings may contain air that is 2 to 5 times, even 100 times more polluted than outdoor air.

 

What is air pollution?

Air pollution can be defined as the emission of harmful substances to the atmosphere.

There are a number of pollutants, including:

  • sulphur dioxide (SO2),
  • ozone (O3),
  • particulate matter (small suspended particles of varying sizes),
  • carbon monoxide (CO)
  • nitrogen oxides (NOx),
  • volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • Carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases are not typically considered within this category and are treated separately on ‘Our World In Data.’

Disentangling the specific air pollutants and clearly attributing them to a specific health or environmental outcome can be complex since some pollutants act as precursors to others. For example, SO2 and NOx can react in the Earth’s atmosphere to form particulate matter (PM) compounds. The sources of each pollutant vary, however, most are generally linked to fuel combustion and industrial activities; pollutants are released as by products of these processes.

 

How can air pollutants affect our lifestyle?

Air pollution has a range of negative impacts, including human health, damage to ecosystems, food crops and the built environment.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) highlights air pollution as the greatest environmental risk to human health (note that this is based on current risk- longer-term environmental threats, such as climate change, may exceed this in the future).

According to research from Our World In Datait’s estimated to be the cause of seven million premature deaths every year (4.3 million from ambient outdoor pollution, and 2.6 from households)
