How Many Air Purifiers do I need?

What is the best place to put an air purifier?

It is recommended to put the purifier in a bedroom or living room because those are the places where people often spend time and therefore expose themselves to environmental particles. In addition, it is important to maintain a constant level of humidity as well as low concentrations of irritant gases such as formaldehyde, to which bedrooms are particularly exposed.

What Size Air Purifier Do I Need?

One must always get an air purifier that can at least equal the room size you need it to filter. For example, if you intend to purchase a single air purifier to cover an entire 700 sq. ft. room space, choose a large-sized air purifier with sufficient purifying coverage. Choose two smaller, medium-sized air purifiers if you want to purchase two air cleaners, each of which would cover a 350-square-foot area.

You will need to measure the square footage of the room that needs to be cleaned in order to select the appropriate size air purifier. The simplest method is to obtain the master floor plan, which will provide you with the room square footage.

If you don’t have one, get a measuring tape and measure the two perpendicular walls in feet. Multiply the width and length numbers to get the room’s square footage. Rinse and repeat the steps to get the rest, such as the living room, kitchen, and dining room. Add those numbers up and you’ll have an idea of what size air purifier you’ll need to cover your entire home.

So, how large of an air purifier do I truly require? The manufacturer’s stated suggested room size is an easy way to tell. The figures presented are generally in units of two air changes per hour (ACH).

 The number of times an air purifier can filter the air in an area hourly is measured in ACH. If you have asthma or allergies, you will require 4 air changes each hour for clean air every 15 minutes. Simply double the official square footage figures by two.

Another option is to consult the CADR, which was established by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM). CADR, or Clean Air Delivery Assess, is a measure used to rate an air purifier’s hourly airflow performance.

The amount of filtered air is measured in cubic feet per minute (cfm), and three independent tests for dust, pollen, and smoke are performed. It should be noted that not all air purifiers take part in AHAM-certified, independent examinations. For models that do, an optional label called AHAM Verified will be put on the box.


How many air purifiers do I need?

Most modest houses would only require two air purifiers. First, they would want a big air purifier capable of covering the living room kitchenette. Second, a compact air purifier is able to cover the whole bedroom, which is where a person spends the majority of his or her time. Depending on the CADR and purifying area of your air purifier, you may require extra units for unprotected room areas. For example, if the quality of air in the home garage is a major problem, you’ll need two more air purifiers to rectify the issue.

Which is the best location for air purifier in bedroom?

An air purifier’s optimal location depends on several factors, including where its filter is housed and what layout your home has. The best place for an air purifier will be close to large sources of polluted air, such as kitchens or garages.

If you are considering buying an air purifier, the best location to put it may not be in your bedroom. It can help improve air quality in any room of your home, but good locations will vary depending on the size and the space. If this is true for you, consider purchasing a unit that doubles as a white noise machine so that it can be placed outside the bedroom while you rest.
