How many square feet of air can it purify?
According to the manufacturer, the unit is rated for 515 square feet. CADR is valued at 350 on average.
What is the manufacturer’s warranty on this air purifier?
A 5-year warranty is included with the NuWave OxyPure Smart Air Purifier.
Is it okay if I use this on a tabletop?
It’s possible, but it’s a bit too large for a tabletop and has rollers. I would suggest putting it on the floor unless you have a way to secure the rollers to prevent it from falling off the table.
In this air purifier, what kind of HEPA filter is used?
Level H11 is used by the NuWave OxyPure Air Purifier.
Is this one equipped with additional filters?
Three additional filters are included with the NuWave OxyPure that last up to 3 years if you buy at the official website. Overall, this air purifier plus filters should work at least 10 years without any additional costs.
For around 48 hours, the purifier works well. The fan then turns off and does not turn back on. The panel lights are working well, but the fan is not. Is this typical?
Unplug for 20 minutes, then plug it back in.
What is the procedure for turning off WiFi?
If you haven’t linked to WiFi yet, it will switch off automatically in a few minutes. If you’ve already wired it, press and hold the power button for three seconds to reset the WiFi. If you don’t enter the WiFi details at that stage, the WiFi will be turned off. If you’re looking for an on/off switch, you won’t find one.
Is NuWave OxyPure noisy?
What exactly is the CFM?
Cubic Feet per Minute, fan Level 6 will have a CFM rating of 350.
Does this air purifier, like an Ion cleaner, cause breathing problems?
I had no idea that ionized air causes breathing problems. I assumed it was supposed to create a better breathing atmosphere by releasing negative ions into the air. In either case, the aforementioned air purifier employs several filters to capture various forms of pollutants, resulting in cleaner air. In a short period of time, my wife’s breathing has improved, and we’ve found a noticeable reduction in dust throughout the home (mainly originating from the air ducts). So, at least in our building, it seems to be doing its job without causing any breathing problems.
Is it made from plastic or metal?
Is the Nuwave Oxypure equipped with LED technology?
Wi-Fi LED pairing is possible with the Nuwave.
Is this compatible with Google Assistant?
This item has its own WiFi app, which works well.

What is the best way to clean sensors?
The Filter Sensor is located above the Filter Slot Cover on the back of the unit.

- Gently remove any dirt or dust from the Sensor with a dry cotton swab or a small, soft brush.
- Clean the Sensor with a slightly damp cotton swab to remove any remaining buildup.
- Using a dry cotton swab, remove any remaining moisture.
- The Filter Sensor must be cleaned on a regular basis (every 3 months or so) in order for the device to work properly.
- If your OxyPure is located in an environment with a lot of dust, you’ll need to clean the Filter Sensor more often.
- Do not use the cotton swab anywhere other than on the Filter Sensor.
In ad campaigns, OxyPure advertises four bonus filters. Why does Amazon only have three options?
Yes, Amazon provides three filters, but one of them is already installed in the purifier.
Do I have to reset the wifi settings to the app every time I plug it back in if I unplug it to switch it to a different room?
When you move your device to a different location, you won’t have to reset the Wi-Fi settings. The Wi-Fi will remain active.
Is this an HSA-eligible purchase?
A letter of medical necessity from your doctor is needed.
Is there a single unit that can handle the entire house?
It depends on the size and layout of your house. You can easily carry it from one room to another.
What is the yearly cost of electricity when the Nuwave OxyPure is on and not when the fan is on, as mentioned on the website, around $10 per year?
I’m not sure yet because I’ve only had it for a few months, but I haven’t seen any significant changes in my electric bill.
What is the weight of the activated carbon in the carbon filter?
This filter is really light, but the carbon can be seen through the fibers, so I estimate it to be about a pound. They recommend replacing every year or so. All of the other filters are washable with a de-greaser, and the unit comes with four carbon filters in total.
Is it better to buy from Amazon or from the manufacturer? Who has the more comprehensive warranty?
A 5-year warranty is included with the NuWave OxyPure Smart Air Purifier.
As long as the item is purchased from an approved vendor, the warranty will remain the same.
What is the Eco-Friendly Mode, and how does it work?
This energy-saving feature works in the same way as the Auto-Control Function in that it keeps the OxyPure off until poor air quality is detected. When poor air quality is detected, the device enters Auto Mode and operates until the air quality improves, at which point it turns off.
What is Night Sleep Mode, and how does it work?
The NuWave OxyPure’s warning lights will be turned off, and the fan speed will be automatically adjusted to preserve air quality while minimizing noise.
What is the smallest particle that the air purifier can capture?
The Nuwave OxyPure can capture a particle to a micron level of 0.09 microns. This is the tiniest particle size that can be measured accurately.
I’m on Oxygen right now. Will using the OxyPure be beneficial to me as well?
Before making any adjustments to your respiratory regimen, always consult your doctor. However, if you get your oxygen from a nasal cannula, you’re already breathing room air, so you might benefit from the NuWave OxyPure’s clean air.
Does NuWave OxyPure eliminate smoke?
Yes, it does.
