In-depth Review of Levoit Core P350:
Both the Levoit Core P350 and the Levoit Vital 100 are made to catch more pet hair and dander; the Core P350 has some advantages. It’s more efficient with a 360-degree air intake design, higher airflow rate, and a pet lock feature.
The Levoit Core P350 Air Purifier has a cylindrically shaped body. What you like about the air purifier’s shape is the sleek design. You also like the 360-degree air intake. It allows air in through the filtration system, where a variety of contaminants get captured.

Efficient Filtration System
Besides the design of this air purifier, we also liked its filtration system. It has a 3-stage filtration system composed of a pre-filter, a HEPA, and an activated carbon filter. The non-woven pre-filter captures particles such as pet dander, hair, fur, and dust which are more than 1 micron in size.
The next stage is the H13 grade True HEPA filter to remove 99.97% of ultrafine particles of 0.3 microns and larger. The granular activated carbon filter neutralizes odors from pets.
What’s unique about this filter is that they feature the ARC or Air Reborn Carbon formula. It works by breaking down air pollutants into harmless molecules.
These molecules get locked within the activated carbon filter. By doing so, it helps to solve the issue of saturated filters. What you also need to know is that the filter decomposes pet odors chemically, preventing second-hand pollution.
This formula also extends the life of the activated carbon filter. Examples of contaminants captured by the filter include unpleasant odors, bacteria, and viruses. Others include pollen, smoke particles, fine dust, and mold spores.

Clean Air Delivery Rate
The air purifier produces high-power vortex airflow with the top air outlet. What’s impressive about this technology is that it increases the effectiveness of air circulation.
The purifier can deliver 142 cubic feet of clean air per minute on the highest fan speed settings. With the CADR ratings, the purifier can clean a 210 square feet room five times in an hour. Check our recommended room size below.
Based on research, air purifiers produce noise ranging from 35 decibels at the lowest fan speed. At the highest fan speed, they create sound ranging from 60 decibels and above. Appliances that can produce 35 to 70 decibels include a refrigerator, dishwasher, and vacuum cleaner.
The Levoit Core P350 Air Purifier has a noise level ranging between 24 to 50 decibels. This air purifier keeps noise levels as low as 24 decibels because it has QuietKEAP technology.
Touch Control Panel
The air purifier has intuitive controls that include the power button, fan speed, sleep mode, pet-proof, and timer. To turn on the purifier, plug it in and tap on the power button. When you do so, the fan will begin at the lowest speed – 1.
The highest fan speed setting is 3. When you select this setting, the noise level will increase, but the air purifier will clean your air faster.
To increase fan speed, tap on the fan speed button, and select your preferred speed level. What you need to know is that the air purifier has a memory function. As such, when you plug in and turn it on, it will remember the air purifier’s previous fan speed setting.
If you want to use the lowest fan speed when sleeping, tap the sleep mode button. When you do so, the air purifier will run at the lowest fan speed, and all indicators will be at half brightness. To turn off the sleep mode, tap the button again.
The air purifier timer function allows you to select how long the air purifier will run. For example, you can choose two hours, four hours, eight hours, or twelve hours.
Another useful control is the pet-proof button. This particular button prevents your pets or child from tampering with any of the air purifier settings.

The Levoit Core P350 and Levoit Core 300 might look similar from the outside, but there are some qualitative differences. You might confuse that the former is an upgrade of the latter. Well, this doesn’t seem right. The former is not an upgrade of the latter.

Q. When should I replace the filter?
A. The air purifier has a filter status indicator. You have to replace the filter after 6 to 8 months based on your usage and the indoor air quality.

A. After replacing the filters, plug in the air purifier, and the Filter Replacement Indicator will light up. Press and hold the Check Filter Indicator for 3 seconds, and it will turn off if the reset is successful.
