Comparison: Levoit Core 600S vs LV-H134 – What are the Differences?

Coverage Area & Efficiency

The Core 600S has an already impressive effective range of up to 59 m² (635 ft²). However, that is still only good enough for second place in this category, with the LV-H134 boasting a coverage area of up to 66 m² (710 ft²) – the highest among all Levoit air purifiers.

In both instances, the recommended room size is based on an assumed five air changes per hour (ACH) and a ceiling height of 2.4 m (8 ft). Therefore, the Core 600S and LV-H134 could be used in even bigger rooms, with the amount of ACH decreasing accordingly.

Clean Air Delivery Rate

In the first step of Levoit’s 3-stage filtration process, a pre-filter takes care of large pollutants including dust, hair, and pet fur. Next, an H13 True HEPA filter captures at least 99.97% of particles and allergens as small as 0.3 µm, for example, pollen and pet dander.

Lastly, smoke, fumes, VOCs, and household odors such as cooking smells and pet odors are neutralized by a layer of activated carbon. The Core 600S does all this at a rate of 697 m³/h (410 CFM), while the LV-H134 has a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 530 m³/h (312 CFM).

Working Noise

In sleep mode, the LV-H134 operates at a noise level as low as 23 decibels (dB) and thus slightly below the 26 dB of its competitor. Running at full speed, however, the Core 600S has the upper hand at 55 dB compared to 57 dB for the LV-H134.

Both models can be set to auto mode, in which they will automatically adjust their fan speed based on air quality. After detecting that the amount of pollutants has started to decrease again after a sudden spike, their fan speed and noise level will decrease accordingly.

23 – 57 dB(A)

Sensors & Display

To gather the real-time data needed for the auto mode, the Core 600S and LV-H134 are equipped with Levoit’s AirSight Plus technology, which uses a high-sensitivity laser dust sensor to continuously scan its surroundings for airborne particles.

An indicator ring on top of both devices reveals the current air quality at a quick glance, with blue signifying very good and red being unhealthy. The level of PM2.5 is also visible on the display. With the Core 600S, even more information is available through the VeSync app.

Conclusion: Levoit Core 600S vs LV-H134 – Which is the Better Air Purifier?

One of the advantages of the Levoit Air Purifier Core 600S over its competitor is its ability to help you keep track of hourly or seasonal changes in air quality via the app. It comes with a high effective range, as well as the highest CADR among all of Levoit’s air purifiers.

The Levoit Air Purifier LV-H134, on the other hand, has the brand’s highest coverage area. If you have an especially large room to purify, or already own a third-party device that measures pollution levels for you and don’t need the built-in functionality, it might be worth a closer look.
