Note If the Turbo button is pressed in Silent mode, the operating mode switches to Purify to allow the Turbo function to run. 19 Checking Air Quality The overall air quality is indicated by color in the status display panel and the air quality indicator light. Understanding Overall Air Quality The overall air quality is indicated using four levels, each using a different color. The overall air quality depends on both the dust density and the odor level. Overall air quality Dust density (µg/m3) Odor level Color Status PM 10 PM 2.5 PM 1.0 Status Level Red Poor 255 or more 56 or more 56 or more Very strong 4 Orange Unhealthy 155 ~ 254 36 ~ 55 36 ~ 55 Strong 3 Yellow Moderate 55 ~ 154 13 ~ 35 13 ~ 35 Normal 2 Green Good 54 or less 12 or less 12 or less Weak 1 •• Overall air quality is indicated by the color of the icon light. in the status display panel and of the air quality indicator •• The overall air quality color indicates the worst level, either the dust density or the odor level. Using the Air Quality Indicator Light The overall air quality light changes color to green (good), yellow (moderate), orange (unhealthy) or red (poor) depending on the dust density and odor level. Turning Air Quality Indicator Light On/Off While the product is operating, press the Light button to turn the overall air quality light on or off. Light Air quality indicator light Light Note After initial startup, the dust sensor stabilizes for 30 seconds and the odor sensor stabilizes for two minutes. The air quality light is white for 30 seconds, then it changes color to indicate the dust density level. Two minutes after starting, the light may change again if the odor level is worse than the dust density level. Note •• The air quality indicator light turns off when the Off Timer is set. •• If the Light button is pressed after the Off Timer is set, both the air quality indicator light and the display indicator light are activated. 20 The overall air quality is indicated by the color of the icon in the display. If the overall air quality is unhealthy (orange) or poor (red), the display also shows the cause. Note •• PM (particulate matter) density is displayed in increments of 1 unit, from 8 to 999. PM density values are based on the data sheet provided by the sensor manufacturer. •• The PM10 and PM2.5 air quality values follow those provided by the United States EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for 2015. –– The overall air quality level displayed on the product may differ from the level announced by the EPA. •• The PM1.0 density is displayed in the same manner as the PM2.5 density and is based on LG Electronics standards. •• The PM10 and PM2.5 densities displayed by the product could differ from the EPA forecast and from densities measured by other products or devices. In the example above, the PM1.0 (super ultra-fine dust) density is shown as 58 micrograms per cubic meter, which is poor (red), so it must be higher than the other PM densities. Odor also appears in the display, so a strong odor is also detected. Note If the overall air quality is good (green) or moderate (yellow), the cause is not displayed. Checking Dust Density and Humidity While the product is on, press the Indicator button. •• Press the button repeatedly to quickly scroll through the sensor results: PM10 → PM2.5 → PM1.0 → humidity. •• After the Indicator button is pressed, the status will display for about 10 seconds. Indicator –– Differences in PM density values may be the result of different methods of measuring or differences in the actual PM density levels. –– The PM density measurement was tested using LG Electronics' standard test materials. •• Using the product near a humidifier, mister, air-conditioner, or other device which generates steam or micro-particles could affect the PM densities. •• The overall air quality level is a result of both PM densities and the odor level. It may differ from the PM10, PM2.5, and PM1.0 density levels. •• Even two products placed in the same space could measure the PM10 density differently due to air circulation. •• The chemicals contained in air fresheners, perfumes, deodorizers, or cosmetics may affect the overall air quality display. •• The dust density displayed may change with environmental factors such as the presence of sofas, beds, carpets, vacuum cleaners, humidity, smoke, bugs, pets, or cooking oils. •• The PM densities may be affected by changes in the outside environment such as construction, heavy traffic, or pollen. •• The micro dust density could be higher near outside doors, windows, vents, or in areas where outside air enters. •• Use ONLY water to clean the sensor. Using anything else could cause product failure. •• The fine dust density could be affected by cooking or using humidifiers, sprays, or other products which generate steam or fine particles. 21 ENGLISH Checking Air Quality in the Display Using Air Quality Monitoring Function Turn on the Air Quality Monitoring function to continuously measure and display the indoor air quality even when the product is turned off. Press and hold the Mode button for about 3 seconds. •• Sterilizing the Air Using Ions Use the Ionizer button to remove various germs in the indoor air using ions.
