In Sleep mode, you can dim the LED lights which could be a pro for light sleepers or children.
How does it clean the air?
The TOSOT purifier is not a small unit and it does a great job of cleaning the air. The filter is a good size and it uses a 3-stage filtration system to get the job done.
- Pre-Filter: The pre-filter removes larger particles like dust hair or other fibers from the air.
- Carbon / HEPA Filter: This filter includes Carbon and HEPA filtration so even though it’s a single filter, it can do the job of both. The HEPA helps reduce small particulate and the carbon works to eliminate foul odors or smoke.
- UV-C Light Filter: UV-C light can kill bacteria and viruses, creating a cleaner and healthier environment.
The Auto Mode on the TOSOT purifier works in tangent with the air quality sensor on the back of the unit. As this purifier starts to detect deteriorating air quality, it can bump up up fan speed to react accordingly.

Keeping the TOSOT air purifier working well is about as easy as any other air purifier. The most important act of maintenance is the filters.
