Levoit LV-H126 Filters

Levoit has a three-stage of filtration system. The filter’s lifespan is a maximum of 6 to 8 months if you feel unusual smells and decreased airflow for the filter’s longevity.

Regular pre-filter cleaning with a vacuum cleaner is advised. Replacing filters is a simple task after removing the air purifier filter.

Clean the inside chambers thoroughly with a vacuum cleaner, unpack the new filter, and put it inside the air purifier. 

The lvh126 does not have an electronic filter indicator. You must do this manually by adjusting the dial on the back of the device. Perhaps a better option would be to use a calendar on your smartphone. 


The pre-filter captures the large floating particles and pet hair from the indoor air.

HEPA Filter

This is the second stage of filtration. A HEPA filter cleans 0.3 microns of small dust particles, viruses, pollen, pet dander, and dust mites. After this process, the air is 99.97% clean.

Activated Carbon Filter

The activated carbon filter is the third stage of filtration that removes unwanted odors, cooking odors, fumes, and harmful smells from the indoor air.

Noise Level 

On the first and second speed level, the device is quite enough. But on the 3rd speed level, the air purifier is much louder, which is a big problem for humans. 

The fact that the efficiency at the third speed is the highest to the first speed. The device produces sound 41 dba at the first speed level. When the device is operating on the second speed level, it produces a sound of 45 dba.

You already know the third speed is the highest speed of this device on the third speed, the device produces a sound of 61 dba. The noise level of the highest rate of this air purifier is not suitable for the human.

Levoit LV-H126 Energy Efficiency

Levoit LV-H126 is not a significant energy consumer air purifier. If you use Levoit LV-H126 full month on third-level speed, it means the air purifier’s highest air cleaning speed. 

The whole month’s electricity cost will you pay just three dollars. If we talk about the price of electricity in the US is about 12 cents per KWH.

Our Recommendations

Levoit LV-H126 is a low CFM output air purifier. This air purifier cleans the air in significantly smaller places. The fact that the unit comes with a real HEPA filter at that price point. 

It’s impressive that Levoit sells an air purifier that is completed with a full-fledged True HEPA filter. It’s not very large, but it’s going to be able to filter particles at an individual efficiency, and that is impressive at this price.

What don’t we like about this air purifier?

Its low output, this unit only outputs at a level that will allow you to use it up to about 6070 square feet at an absolute maximum, so clearly, that isn’t very large and even small bedrooms. 

That’s not going to be good enough so keep that in mind with this unit. There’s another unit at this same price, another unit at this same price Germ Guardian AC 4100, and that germ guardian will output it a little bit more than this unit.

So even we compared to a tiny unit, a very low output unit on the market. In that germ guardian, this will avoid unit outputs at an even lesser rate than that germ guardian.

We don’t recommend these units because of very low outputs and noise at the highest operating speed.

If you buy a bigger-sized air purifier, this will also be energy efficient and quiet enough to other small-sized air purifiers.

Suppose the Cowy Mighty AP-1512HH is the best air purifier that covers up to 360 sq. ft space for air cleaning. It has a Ture HEPA filter and with excellent output.

You can use this air purifier in your small rooms, and it operates silently—our strong recommendation for Coway Mighty AP-1512HH.
