Design and Usability

Like most “cheap” air purifier in the group, Levoit LV-H132 is compact and lightweight. At only 9.7 x 14.6 x 9.8 in size and 6.6 lb weight, the modern cylinder shape design is perfect for bedside table use. Build quality is decent with a slight texture on the bottom to mimic the air vent. Speaking of air vent, you have air flowing in from the bottom, purified and release out at the top. You will also find 4 anti-skid pads on the filter cover to prevent the air purifier from easily move. What’s lacking is a handle slot to hold on; not a big deal given how portable the air purifier is.

On to the usability, there is a power, night light, filter reset, and fan speed button at the top. Pressing the power button once will turn on the air purifier, again to turn it off. Next to it is the Night Light button with a secret function. On normal press, the button will cycle between on, dimmed light and off. Press and hold the button will disable all button lights on the air purifier. Press any button again expect the Power button will enable the button lights back on. For filter reset button, press and hold the button for 3 seconds to reset the filter countdown. Lastly, The Fan Speed Button will cycle between speed 1, 2 and 3. Overall, controls are straightforward to use but the button is a bit small.

To recap, LV-H132 is a 3-stage compact air purifier with 3 speed, nightlight, and filter reset button. Standard support includes lifetime customer support and 2 years warranty. Autonomous purifying is not available in this air purifier.

Airflow, Coverage, And CADR

Let's be honest, Levoit LV-H132 86 sq. ft. purifying coverage is only meant for close approximately purifying. It is only suitable for bedroom use or in tight spaces. Using it on the living room is still doable, but you need to tune it to the max speed. Even by then it does not make big differences between the airflow delivery rate. Since there is no Auto mode, the best way to utilize the air purifier is to place it as close to the intended target.

CADR is not outstanding either although still better than its segment competitors. Expect an average of 110 cfm clean air delivery rates for dust, pollen, and smoke. In close range, it should handle most irritants well but keep your expectations down.

Filters And Performance

Nothing extraordinary on Levoit LV-H132 air purifier 3-stage filtration setup. The top Fine Preliminary Filter would first trap medium to large particles. This makes it easy for the True HEPA filter to trap super fine airborne allergen, bacteria, and viruses. Activated Carbon Filter would handle household gases and odors but with restricted efficiency. Overall, filter quality is decent and the bundled filter kit so it can be easily replaced. Just flip over the air purifier and remove the filter kit from the bottom cover.

Noise And Energy Usage

Levoit LV-H132 has a more subdue noise (≤ 43dB) that barely cause any commotion at low speed. There is the occasion fan noise during startup but is neglectable. Noise level at third speed is reasonably low too. Keep in mind that this air purifier is usually placed close to you due to the small applicable area. There might be some form of white noise throughout the whole operation. On to power consumption, the 28 W rate is no doubt energy-efficient given the weak airflow. It will not cost any extra burden even if you operate it throughout the day with or without nightlight.
