does it emit ozone?

The Coway AP-1512HH Mighty Air Purifier does not emit ozone. It does not have an ionizer. The other answers saying it does, or saying it does when the ionizer is turned on, are apparently referring to a different model, which Amazon in its wisdom has lumped together with the Mighty.

Does this come with the filters included?

It comes with 1 HEPA filter (1 year est.) and 1 carbon filter (6 month est.) Based on the reviews though, the filter tend to lasts longer than the estimate.

Does this remove PM 2.5 ?

Yes it does remove PM2.5 particles effectively. PM 2.5 is right in a HEPA filters sweet spot. HEPA filter remove 99.97% of particles above 0.3 micrometers, and PM2.5 are right around 2.5 micrometers, so this would be extremely effective at doing so. This is true of all HEPA filters though, nothing special here.

Does it have any odor at all when new out of the box (plastic smell, toxic, etc.)?

The filters definitely have an odor out of the box.

Is the on/off button toggle type? i want to use a Z-wave module to turn it on or off based on a schedule?

Its a single power button, push once to turn on and again to turn off. If you cut the power while it is on, and then reconnect the paper, it will go back to its previous fan speed before the power was disconnected. Therefore it should work fine with a timer or other remote power relay system.

Can the ion filter be deactivated?

There are three filters. A large mesh particulate filter, a carbon filter for odor control, and a small particulate HEPA filter. There is no such thing as an ion filter. There is however, a control button that allows you to turn ionization on or off.

The white color is $50 cheaper, is there a difference other than color?


Can the ionizer function be turned on/off?

Yes, the ionizer function be turned on/off. There is a separate toggle button for this.

Does it come with the BTS members?

No. But the Coway is “Dynamite” and if you run your hand along the front edge, it’s “smooth like butter, like a criminal undercover.”

What area does this air purifier cover–a house, a room, or what?

Another thing to consider when looking at the 326 sq. ft. coverage is the height of your ceilings. 12 ft. ceilings, cathedral ceilings, anything above a standard ceiling height is going to add more air per square foot of floor space for the machine to purify. That would cut down on the air quality based solely upon the square footage of the floor.

Does it filter out the ‘rona?

maybe, read review on Wire cutter

What is the voltage on this; dual by any chance?

if bought in USA it will be 110. Bought in Korea it will be 220

Can you return this?

It says you can return unused or defective.

Do you need to due anything if blue light changes color?

The color change indicates if the unit has discovered increased pollutants in the air. If it is in Auto mode, it will ramp up the airflow to circulate more air. There isn’t really much more to it than that.

how can you tell if the ionizer button is off?

When the ionizer button is “off” the light that identifies this function is also “off”.

what is the weight of the unit?

12.7868 lbs. (~13lbs)

How big is it and what weight?

It should say on the listing if not contact them

Can the ion filter be turned off?

Yes, this unit has on/off buttons for certain functions. You can choose not to turn on the Ion function.
