Coway Mighty AP1512HH Review
Price – Coway Mighty AP1512HH
The price that you see on amazon is an inflated. The price is expected to soon come down sooner than later. The Coway Sleek Pro AP1009 is the Best Coway Air Purifier in India.
Coway Mighty is ideal for small rooms as its CADR is low. It’s compact design makes it easy to handle and move around. This Coway Air Purifier can clean the air of rooms sized 360 sq.ft. effectively. Indoor pollution is considerably reduced. However, it loses its sheen when used in larger rooms. The air purifier is capable of achieving 4 air changes per hour. This figure is called ACH in technical terms and is good for an air purifier of this size. This means that Coway Mighty AP1512HH can pass all the air in the room through its filters 4X times. The Air Quality Indicator light at the top is useful to know the pollution level.
It does not have a sleep mode which may seem to you as if its noisy. But, this is not the case. The air purifier has 3 fan speed levels. The decibel value at lowest fan speed is as low as a whisper. During night the sound of the fan is not disturbing. Infact, the fan produces a humming sound which promotes sleep as it is Continuous White Gaussian Noise (CWGN).
Coway Mighty Performance
Coway Mighty employs 4-stage air filtration stages. The first one is the pre-filter which is a plus if your air purifier has it. It stops the larger particles of dust and hair etc. from choking the HEPA and carbon filters. A pre-filter can be washed when you find it has turned dirty. It will enhance the efficiency of the air purifier. Next stage is a dense carbon filter to remove odour and gases from the air. The last stage is the quintessential HEPA filter. With the kind of price Coway Mighty comes at, its bound to have a TRUE HEPA filter. A filter replacement indicator alerts you when its time to replace the carbon or HEPA filters.
An extra layer of protection against bacteria and virus is provided. The ionizer which can be independently operated which is a good thing. You should avoid running the air purifier with ionizer ON for prolonged durations. An ionizer can generate ozone gas in small quantity. Ozone is a killer for bacteria and virus. It also degenerates harmful substances in air and makes them harmless. As a best practice run it before sleeping for sometime only.
Coway Might Power Consumption
An air purifier may have to work non-stop to deliver pure air continuously. In times when power bills pinch us bad, its important to know how much power a device eats. The Coway Mighty scores high marks in this regard. In an ECO Mode function, the air purifier barely consumes any power. Just 5 Watts. You can also set timers for 1, 4 or 8 hours.
Remember the sleep mode in your laptops? ECO mode is similar to that. When the air quality is good then instead of running uselessly like a fool, it goes in standby mode. The particle sensors sense the improvement or deterioration in air quality and operate the air purifier. When the air quality degrades the air purifier is turned ON back. The power consumption at highest fan speed is 70 W. So if you run it for 14 hours on top fan speed then it would consume 1 unit. That’s not much.
