Coway AP-1512HH Design

One thing Coway are known for is updating the design of their devices. No two Coway devices are exactly the same, and this is no exception. While it does share some similarities with the earlier model, it has a lot that makes it stand out. For a start, it is available in two different colors. You can get it in black or white depending on your preferences, and the room you’ll be putting it in. 
The front and back of the Coway AP-1512HH is covered in plastic, but it still manages to look more upmarket than other purifiers in this price range. The five function buttons to the top of the purifier allow you to control it, change the settings, and check the air quality of the room. 

Coway AP-1512HH Features

One of the key features of this air purifier is the air quality monitor. This gives you real-time feedback about the quality of the air in your room. When the device is left in auto-mode, the indicator changes depending on the air quality. When the unit detects a change in air quality it automatically adjusts to take care of it. Keep an eye on it to see what is causing the most damage to the air quality in your room. The purifier is able to detect excess dirt and dander in a matter of minutes. 
The Coway AP-1512HH uses a four-stage filtration system. This system includes a true HEPA filter that is able to screen and remove 99.97% of particles starting at 0.3 microns in size. A standard air filter is only able to capture particles up to 2 microns. 1.7 microns might not sound like much, but it makes all the difference in the world for allergy sufferers. 
Standard air purifiers aren’t able to eliminate pet dander and pollen. For that you will need a True HEPA filter. So you can count on the Coway AP-1512HH to eliminate pollen and dust mites. Even if you don’t have an allergy, having cleaner air will do you a lot of good.

While the features all work well and as intended, one area where the Coway AP-1512HH lets us down is the volume department. The purifier is rather quite at the first two speed settings, but everything changes when you put it to the highest setting. That can get so loud that you may have trouble talking or even watching TV. If the device switches to this setting automatically you might want to get up and turn it back down. The first two settings should be more than enough anyway. Consider the third setting to be a “turbo mode” for big problems.
