Over 4.8 Star Rating on Amazon
Its not a usual sight to find such fantastic reviews and ratings of a device. However good an air purifier may be, consumer experience may differ drastically. It seems a vast majority buyers were 100% content with all if its aspects.
The Coway AP-1216L Tower Air Purifier has low foot-print and a tower design. A room sized 330 sq.ft can be cleaned well though this model. The air purifier circulates a lot of air mass which is a good thing. The suction is so strong that you can feel it if you stand in front of it. There is a 12 hour timer which is a unique setting.
The control panel looks hi-tech and the air purifier blends well in the room. The 1216L Air Purifier sucks air through the side and blow it to the right side of the machine. The air sensor on this is on the left side of the machine. The only downside may be that the HEPA filters do not fit snugly.
A separately operable Ionizer is a plus point. Ionizer destroys bacteria and virus. Negative Ions have an uncanny ability to uplift the mood too.
The more the number of filter stages, the better. The Coway AP1216-L has 4 such stages of air purification.
- Washable Pre-Filter: Its always good to have a pre-filter in your air purifier. Even if its not accompanied, you can make your device to wear a fine synthetic cloth. A pre-filter prevents larger dust particles from choking the inner filters. It also stops pet hair, mold, and dander.
- Carbon Filter: The quintessential Activated carbon filter. It adsorbs the gaseous pollutants and odors too.
- True HEPA Filter: A True HEPA filter is capable of trapping 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. It also removes very fine dust, smoke particles, pollen and other allergens.
- Vital Ionizer: This stage is the last and is individually operable. The Vital ION Technology releases anions, which are negatively charged particles into the air. Anions are known to act as mood enhancers. Not just this they dissociate harmful particles, bacteria, and viruses and renders them impotent.
Air Changes Per Hour (ACH)
The Coway AP1216-L has an ACH of 4. This parameter reflects how many times an air purifier is capable of circulating the complete air volume through itself. Naturally, the more the ACH, the more quickly the air is purified. The rated room size to achieve ACH of 4 is 249 sq.ft.
Monitors The Air Quality
The Coway Air Purifier displays the ambient air quality through a color changing LED ring. The LED is visible clearly from all angles owing to the unique slanting console. Red LED (highly polluted), purple LED (medium polluted), and blue LED (clean) give you an idea. Though we would have loved to see a PM2.5 display which is a norm nowadays.
Filter Replacement Indicator
Timer can also be set for 1, 4, 8 or 12 hours.
- Silent operation at 52 decibels.
- Sensitive touch panel
- Compact Design
No Sleep Mode, Remote control or WiFi. Power consumption a bit high.
In our previous article we reviewed this model. You can read the review here.
The Coway AP-0509 Air Purifier can cater to 255 sq. ft or 24 sq. mtrs. This makes it suitable for bed rooms or small offices. This model does not have any Air Quality Indicator. All other Coway Air Purifiers have this feature. Other specifications are the same as the Coway AP-1009.
- There’s an Air Quality Color Indicator which changes color in accordance with the pollution level. Although we expected a digital real-time pollution display at this cost.
- Unique 4 Stage Filtration Process- Pre Filter, Fine Dust Filter, Activated Carbon Filter, HEPA Filter.
- A High CADR – 492 cubic m/hr
We liked the unique mode in this Air Purifier- Air Flow Technique. It can be set to long or wide modes. We really liked the air circulation it produces. It can stir up quite a storm just like its name! The more the circulation the better air cleansing is achieved. Plus lesser the time it takes to clean the entire room’s air multiple times.
The Level 1 barely makes any noise. The Level 2 is somewhat audible but not that much. Level 3 makes as much noise as a kitchen fan. The Coway Storm AP-1516 reduces odor quickly. It removes lingering odor if your home fills with smells while cooking. Read its FULL Review on Airswacch.
This Air Purifier combines the functionality of an air purifier and a white noise generator. White noise is a combined non-intrusive, non-disturbing and soothing noise that is produced by combining sounds of all different frequencies together. 2 timer settings are present. Helpful to put your little ones to sleep.
Sweet Natural Sounds – 3 nature sounds and 2 lullabies can be selected. The crickets, lullabies, rain, and white noise are all sweet. The ocean sound may seem like a broken record. You may feel the sounds to be not easily audible so turn up the volume a bit.
The unit takes the air in through the front and spits it out from the top. An Ionizer function should have made it a better option but its missing. Timer for 2, 4 or 6 hours is present.
