When to Change Air Filter on Air Purifier?
« on: January 25, 2018, 11:56:47 AM »
Hi,
So I bought a Coway AP-1016Q about a month ago. I am wondering, when do I need to change the filter? There is not filter change indicator on this model. Also, where do you buy Coway filters? Mine only has two filters in it, rather than some of the newer ones which have 4-in-1 filters.

It does have a filter change indicator. When the 무드 button lights up, that means you should change the filter. If you take off the front panel to access the filters, on the inside of that front panel there is a sticker that explains when and how to change the filter. In Korean of course.

It should only be changed once a year if you use it 24/7 on low setting. I have had the same thing for about 2 years now but there was no need to change the filter as I only use it when the air is bad. I have it on roughly 1/3 of the time so I estimate it would be another year before that light comes out.
Just wash or vacuum the mesh pre-filter regularly and don't worry about changing for a while. When that time comes, go to naver or daum and type in the model number and add 필터. You will find loads. It's around 50-60k I believe

Wow, so helpful. Thank you! I have been cleaning the pre-filter periodically. That is great though that I don't need to change it often. I thought I would need to do it every 6 months or so. Thanks again!
