In-depth Review of Levoit Core 300 Air Purifier:
Levoit Core 300 comes with a combined 3-in-1 filter cartridge: a pre-filter net, a true HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter. The outermost filter is a net pre-filter, which protects the core filters from being clogged. It captures larger airborne particles such as lints, dust, and pet fur.
The attached pre-filter is not washable, and Levoit recommends clean it with a soft brush or a vacuum hose every 2 to 4 weeks. It will increase the lifespan and efficiency of the 3-in-1 filter.
The core particle filter is a true HEPA grade filter that traps 99.97% of household dust, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, and smoke particles of 0.3 microns in diameter.
The third level of filtration is based on granular activated carbon materials, which absorb odors from pets, cooking, and VOCs. However, this is not a heavy-duty odor absorber as the filter bed thicker. So, don’t select it if your primary concern is to eliminate odors from your room.
The filter needs to be replaced every 6 to 8 months, which seems great. Levoit offers four types of replacement filters you can choose from. The air purifier has no electronic filtration such as a UV-C light or an ionizer, so the purifier is entirely ozone-free.
Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) & ACH
Levoit Core 300 has a CADR of 141 cfm for smoke particles, suitable for a small to medium-sized room. You will get 5 air exchanges per hour in a 210 square feet room, which looks great. The purifier has a 360-degree air intake and a top air outlet, which is the most efficient air circulation design.
The air purifier is also Energy Star certified.
Aesthetics & Noise Level
Levoit Core 300 is a decorative and elegant-looking air purifier. Lightweight only at 7.5 lbs, the purifier is available in Black and White you can choose from.
The touch control panel on the top is convenient to use, and it includes all the necessary features an air purifier needed. It featured 3 fan speeds and four different timers: 2hr, 4hr, 6r, and 8hr.
You can set it to sleep mode, where it goes to the lowest fan speed and turns of the indicator lights. It also features a display lock button to prevent unwanted touch.
Levoit Core 300 does not have any air quality sensors.
The lowest noise is only 24dB, which is below the whisper level, and the maximum noise level is around 50 dB, which looks a bit louder for a 141 cfm air purifier. So, you have to use it in your small bedroom at night but with lower fan speed.
