Levoit LV-H132 HEPA Air Purifier Review

If you are looking for a small bedside or tabletop air purifier to remove dust, smoke, allergens and odors, the Levoit LV-H132 is a great choice.

The air purifier is modest in size, measuring only 14.5” high and 8.5” across. It will easily fit on your nightstand, work desk or side table.

Being small, it’s only ideal for small spaces. It does an excellent job in rooms of up to 130 square feet, clearing smoke, allergens and smells in a matter of minutes.

We’ve picked it as the best air purifier for small rooms in our HEPA air purifier buying guide.  

Read on for a full review.

Pros

  • Affordable.
  • Compact and highly portable.
  • True HEPA filter – high-efficiency filtration of allergens as small as 0.3 microns.
  • No ozone.
  • Quiet operation and relaxing night light option.
  • Long-lasting filters.

Cons

  • Not ideal for large rooms.
  • A bit loud when on the highest speed setting.

Best Features

Perfect for Small and Mid-size Rooms

Bigger is not always better.

A large air purifier rated at 700 square feet coverage is a waste of money and energy in a 150 square foot room. Beyond a certain point, having more air changes power hour does not make a difference.  

If you want a purifier for a small or midsize, the Levoit LV-H132 is perfect.

It cleans the air just as well as a large air purifier without spending a lot of energy or making a lot of noise.

Levoit recommends using it in rooms not larger than 129 square feet.

It’s a great choice for the bedroom, home office, den or a small living room.

3-Stage Filtration

Levoit Air Purifier Reviews

To ensure high-efficiency purifications, air goes through 3 stages of filtration before it is dispersed into the room.

Pre-filter: removes airborne bacteria, mold, fungi, and pet dander.

True HEPA filter: Captures 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. These include dust mites and pollen.

Activated carbon filter: Neutralizes common household smells associated with things like cooking and pets. Also reduces the amount of cigarette smoke in the air. However, if cigarette smoke is a major pollutant in your home, I recommend getting an air purifier designed specifically for that. See our reviews of the best air purifiers for cigarette smoke.

You may have noted that, unlike most home air purifiers, the LV-H132 lacks an ionizer.

The company says this improves your health.

Most negative ion generators produce a little amount of ozone together with the negative ions. Beyond a certain level, ozone is detrimental to your health. 

Removes Most Allergens and Contaminants

The Levoit’s three filters capture a wide range of allergens and contaminants. These include pet dander, bacteria, and viruses, smoke (including wildfire smoke), household odors, pollen, mold spores, and fungi.

Whether you have allergies or not this is a great investment for your health. It’s also helpful for people with asthma and those who are sensitive to certain odors.

3 Fan Speeds

Levoit Air Purifier Reviews

You can select how quickly the air purifier cleans the air by changing the fan speed. There are three speed levels: low, medium and high.

The default is medium. Select high when there is a high level of pollutants in the air such as odors or dust.

Select low when there are fewer allergens or at night when you want to lower the fan noise.

Quiet Operation Plus Nightlight   

Levoit Air Purifier Reviews

When set at the highest fan speed, the LV-H132 makes the same sound like a normal desktop fan. You won’t even notice it during the day when you are watching TV or going about your work.

But it can get a bit loud at night when you are asleep. For your bedroom, I recommend the lowest fan speed.

At this setting, it barely makes any sound.

Another thoughtful setting to help you sleep better is the nightlight. It produces a nice relaxing glow whose brightness you can vary to your preference.

Limitations

An obvious limitation is size. Being a compact air purifier, it’s not ideal for large rooms bigger than 130 square feet.

If you want a purifier for a large room, you’ll have to spend more.

Several customers also mentioned an issue with the indicator lights. You cannot turn them off, and they can be annoyingly bright in a pitch-dark bedroom.

Some users had to tape over them to sleep comfortably.

Specs

Dimensions: 8.5 x 8.5 x 14.5 inches

Weight: 6.48lbs  

Coverage: 129 square feet.

Conclusion

If you are looking for an affordable and compact air purifier for your bedside or desk, the Levoit LV-H132 is one of the best.

Despite its size, it does a great job ensuring you are breathing in clean, healthy air.
