When shopping around for the best air purifier that you can get, there are several features that you ought to have at the top of your mind. You should be looking for something that’s convenient to operate, and also powerful enough to filter out the air in a large room a couple of times for optimum air quality. The Levoit Smart air purifier fits this description very well, and can be used to efficiently clean up the air in your bedroom, living room, or even kitchen. It’s also got a couple of connectivity features that allow us to feature it on our best smart air purifier list, so if this sounds like something you would like, make sure to get to the end of this review.

Why We Like It – Levoit Smart Wifi Air Purifier

The Levoit Smart WiFi Air Purifier is a top-notch, smart air freshener that’s perfect for a room size of up to 900 square feet. It’s also got support for WiFi connectivity, so you’ll be able to easily connect and control it from your smartphone.

Pros
  • WiFi connectivity allows for smartphone operation
  • Supports voice control through Alexa
  • Sleep mode for quiet operation
Cons
  • Short 1-Year Warranty

Power/Speed

With the ability to automatically adjust between 3 fan speed settings when switched to auto mode, the Levoit Air purifier keeps things completely easy and stress-free, making it a perfect fit for anyone who would not want to fumble with too many settings. Similar to the Rabbit Air Minusa2 Air Purifier, the unit features a true HEPA filter to eliminate any pet dander, pollen, dust, and spores from the air, a carbon filter to deal with any bad odors, and a pre-filter to rid the air of any large, foreign particles.

Efficiency

The Levoit smart Wi-Fi air purifier can clean the air in a 900 sq ft room in an hour, but for best results, the manufacturer recommends using it in a room of up to 360 square feet. You may also check out our Levoit LV PUR131s review if you want an air purifier that is efficient in rooms of up to 500 square feet. In regards to energy efficiency, the unit will only cost you about $12 to $15 a year in electricity costs to run it, but the Airmega 400S happens to be a far better choice in terms of this as it is actually energy star certified. You can however take advantage of its auto timer, and schedule it to switch off between 1 and 12 hours after it gets activated, or even switch it to sleep mode for ultra-quiet operation.

Versatility

To keep you informed of the kind of air quality that you happen to be breathing in, the Levoit Wifi Air purifier has got an air quality sensor built-in that will detect large particles in the air, and use a color code to keep you informed of how clean the air is. To facilitate this, all you have to do is install the Vesync app on your phone, and connect to the unit through WiFi. Having done that, you’ll also get notifications on when you need to replace the HEPA filter, have a look at the filter’s remaining filter life, or even set a timer schedule for it.

Durability

The 1-year warranty that backs the Levoit Smart WiFi air purifier doesn’t really match up to the 5-year policy that you’ll get with the Bissell Air Purifier, but this is not to say that the Levoit Air Purifier is any less reliable. You’ll just have to make sure that you replace its true HEPA air filter whenever prompted to by the app, and you’ll be able to enjoy clean air thanks to top-notch performance. Our Mammoth air purifier review can prove beneficial if you are looking for a durable purifier with sturdy construction.

Value

Unlike most air purifiers in the market, the Levoit LV PUR131s allows for voice control, as long as you’re able to connect it to your Alexa device. This is something that can be very convenient especially if you don’t have your smartphone around, and also since the unit doesn’t come with a remote control.

Levoit Smart Wifi Air Purifier Wrap Up

The Levoit air purifier is an efficient option that you can go for especially if you need clean air, and once you connect it to the Vesync app, you’ll be able to take advantage of the 10+ features that make it a smart unit.
