Coway AP1512HH Air Purifier – sleek, portable & efficient

The Coway AP1512HH Air Purifier is one of the most pleasing and attractive of appliances in the entire purifier/air conditioner market. Our reviews team put the appliance to the test to assess how well its performance and efficiency lives up to its exceptional appearance.


Cleaning Capabilities

This Coway AP1512HH can effectively purify the air of space up to approximately 360 square feet. It should be noted that moving it into larger spaces will not be as effective or efficient.

At the recommended room size, the AP1512HH’s HEPA filters, which are designed to catch even the smallest particulates in the air, can achieve up to four air changes an hour: in other words, all of the air in the room will be filtered through the machine every 15 minutes.

While this is quite impressive, the unit’s clean air delivery rate (CADR) is below average. Here is more specific data on the CADR for the Coway AP1512HH:

  • Smoke Removal: 232
  • Dust Removal: 246
  • Pollen Removal: 240

The Coway AP1512HH also comes with a built-in optional ionizer, capable of charging air passed through it, making for easier particulate capture in the following passes. However, buyers should be aware that such ionizers tend to leave traces of ozone in the air. The good news that if this is a deal breaker, this function can be turned off in the Coway AP1512HH.

The Coway AP1512HH utilises a four-stage filtration system, consisting of a washable pre-filter for large particles (hair, dust) so you don’t have to replace the more effective filters as often; a carbon filter for removing odour; and a HEPA filter; in addition to the optional ionizer filter. It should be pointed out that the carbon filter may not remove some strong odours quickly.


Efficiency & Certifications

The Coway AP1512HH is Energy Star-verified. Rated to use up to 79 watts at its highest setting, the purifier rarely reaches this level of consumption, only consuming approximately 60 watts on highest setting. This makes the AP1512HH one of the more efficient units we have reviewed.

This unit is also AHAM- and ARB-certified, meaning that its CADR scores are accurate, and that this device has been verified as having the capacity to improve the air quality in your home.



Small and lightweight, the Coway AP1512HH purifier is extremely portable, and easy to move from room to room. Weighing just 15lbs, and including a handle for improved mobility, this is definitely one of the most portable pieces of equipment we have reviewed.



The Coway AP1512HH is easily one of the best looking air purifiers on the market. It will be a guaranteed talking point in any modern home, with its silver and black colour scheme and beveled-edge square design.


Help & Support

Unfortunately, the help & Support for this product is not to the same high standard as some of the other appliances and brands we have reviewed. However, Coway may be contacted via email and phone via the company website’s ‘contact us’ section.



In summary the Coway AP1512HH is a superb small purifier, that, while below average in its CADR rating, still excels at filtering the air of a small-medium room.
