1-Design and Functionality:

Levoit LV H  126  is a small box shaped body with a front panel containing blue fiber cloth containing the trademark “Levoit.”Behind the front panel of LV-H 126 purifier, there is a ventilation grill for the polluted air exit.  This grill is effectively customized for air circulation.This desktop machine unlike Levoit LV-H 132 and Levoit LV- H 133 has a simple control panel at front.

Below this panel there is a dial knob by which you can control fan speed and turn off fan.Fan speed option of this model can be adjusted for low, medium and high modes

 

At the back there is a filter change wheel containing 1 to 12 numbers.This filter reminds you about expiry time of changing filter.unlike advance purifier like Levoit vista 200 or Levoit LV H 135 that automatically reminds you on expiry of filter,Levoit LV H 126 is deprived of this functionality.When you change filter,there is maximum chance that you can not remember that month so adjust the filter change wheel on that number.The numeric digit marked on this wheel is equivalent to that month.

If we look  its dimensional feature these are 10.5 x 6.8 x 7.9 inches and by weight it is 5.7 lbs.

An interesting thing is that LVH-126 comes with 3 different colors i,e

  1. Black
  2. Whitish
  3. Light Blue

It is up to you,which color fascinates you.All  these 3 colors are tempting as well as eye-catching.

2-Air Purification System:

Levoit LV H 126 has a 3 stage purification system consisting of Preliminary Filter,HEPA filter and carbon filter that helps to eliminate contamination upto 99.9% down to 0.3 microns.Usually after 6-8 months filter replacement should be done depending upon surrounding conditions and usage.

Bad air enters from the back side and clean air comes out from the grill located behind the front panel. 

Filtration system consists of a True HEPA filter rather than HEPA type filter that provides better cleaning than the latter.

 

Pre-Filter:Preliminary filter is attached to a carbon filter that performs dual functions i.e captures large particles like pet hair,fur and other large size allergens also it can trap odors of your pets,kitchen,smoking  and unwanted smell of your room.

True-HEPA filter:mold,bacteria,spores and other small allergens  are trapped in this filter thus cleaning room air upto 99.9%.

3-CADR And ACH Rating:

Area coverage for Levoit LV H  126 is 161sq.ft.so it is best suitable for small spaces like small bedrooms, home offices or kitchens.

Clean air delivery rate(CADR) rating for this purifier for Dust, Pollen and Smoke is generally 40cfm.Time taken by this purifier to clean the 161 sq.ft. area is approx  90 minutes.

ACH(Air change per hour) rating tells us how much time an appliance takes to clean a room.This ACH rating is determined by “X” multiplied by a number of times air exchange through the purifier. For Levoit LV H  126, the rating is 2X means it has the ability to clean the room air 2 times per hour. Air exchange through this purifier after every 30 minutes.

4-Effect On Electricity:

Two most frequent questions that customers ask during purchasing air purifier;

  • For what time span should air purifier be used?
  • How much electricity does an air purifier utilize?

Small range air purifiers use few units of electricity which make them worthy for purchase.Also these purifiers take some long time to clean pollutents.Like in this case of Levoit LV-H 126,you should run the machine for 8 hours to purify the air.

For your knowledge;

One unit electricity = 1 KW (1000 watts)/per one hr.

The formula for monthly electricity usage and per month electricity cost is;

Monthly Electricity Usage = (Air Purifiers rated Power x Daily usage in an hour)/1000 x 30) kWh month

Monthly Electricity Cost = Monthly Electricity Usage x Energy charges per kWh in USD

In the case of  Levoit LV-H 126, energy consumption is 35 Watts(rated power). If you use this machine continuously for almost 12 hours, then multiply 35 by 12 and divide by 1000watts. Multiply the remaining figure by 30 for the monthly cost.in this way, monthly power utilization will find out.   = 35*12/1000=0.42*30=12.6 KWatts per month

To find out monthly electricity cost multiply monthly consumption by the unit cost of electricity. (Suppose if unit cost is $1.5) =12.6 * 1.5=18.9 cents/kWh per month

5-Noise Level:

Noise and sound levels of a purifier are calculated in decibels (dB). All purifiers have reasonable sound(not very loud), especially when compared with refrigerator or window AC. The quietest air purifiers fall in the range of dB rating of 15-35 at the low fan speed, whereas moderate ones in the range of 35 to 55 and the loudest purifiers in the range of 55 to 75 dB and above this range. Here in the case of  Levoit LV-H 126  noise level falls near the whispering range according to data below.if you set it at high fan speed it will be 54 db which is near normal conversation level.  

The following comparison will be effective for your understanding and good conception;

          Decibel(dB)                Sound equivalent

  • 0dB                                     Normal hearing threshold
  • 30dB                                  Library talking/whispering
  • 60dB                                  Normal conversation/slight noisy
  • 70dB                                  Vacuum Cleaner
  • 90dB                                  Lawnmower
