What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive! I live in WA state, night now there are fires everywhere and the air quality is dangerous outside. It was 85 degrees in our 150sf bedroom and unbearable to sleep. I decided to open the window to cool it down. In 15 min the air quality on the purifier went from 15(good) to 150(really really bad). I shut the window once the temp was bearable and within 5-7 min the air quality was back to the teens. Amazing. This little machine was expensive, but worth every penny To be able to breathe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I bought one purifier last fall and put it upstairs right outside our daughter's room. Last week, I bought a second one for our downstairs. This purifier cuts odors like nothing else I have ever had. The smell of fish and bacon is eliminated minute after you finish cooking. As someone who is sensitive to smells, this is really important to me. In addition, I have really bad seasonal allergies and this purifier has made my home an allergy-free zone, which is huge! I bought a third purifier to gift to my brother who lives in Santa Barbara, CA. This was at the height of the scare with forest fires and he had been issued a mandatory evacuation notice a couple times because of forest fires. Needless to say, this meant his apartment and everything he owned was permeated with the smoke. My brother said that the smell of smoke was gone after running this purifier for a couple hours!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything Just Great Add love everything about this purifier. It does more than what I’ve seen in other purifiers that I bought in the past. I just love the different settings and it’s so quiet that I don’t realize that it’s still on. This LG completely remove all the contaminated air from my apartment. If anyone is thinking about buying one of those items I would recommend you doing so. it’s worth every penny that you spend on it.

How often do I need to change the filter?

Asked by: beth50
The LG PuriCare Air Purifier Round Console, Model # AS401VSA0 utilizes a 3-stage filter system, the Pre Filter and the PuriCare Main Filter and Deodorizing Filter (Part # AAFTVT130). The Pre Filter can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner or a brush, and if it is very dirty, it can be rinsed under running water after cleaning it with a vacuum cleaner. It should be cleaned every approximately every month. The 3M MERV 14 filter or the deodorizing filter cannot be washed with water and have to be replaced when they become very dirty. They will need to be replaced approximately every 12 months. The Filter Life light on the unit turns on based on the operating time. The Orange light turns on after 3,600 - 4, 000 hours. The Red light turns on after 4,000 hours. If the light is red, you will need to open the back panel and check the filters. If they are contaminated, they will need to be replaced...^IFV
