Do you need an air purifier in every room of your home? The answer is not necessarily. Most air purifiers can effectively clean the air in a space of up to 500 square feet. This means that if you have a large room with a lot of traffic, one air filter may be enough. However, it is generally recommended to have an air purifier for each room, as long as your HVAC system can support it.
When it comes to air filters, it is important to make sure you use the right type that is made for your HVAC system and that you change them often enough. It is also recommended to have an air filter on each return grille, as long as you choose the one of the correct size and thickness. Air filters will improve the air quality in your home and protect HVAC equipment from dust, pollen, pet dander and hair. Most modern air purifiers are easy to move from room to room, so you can move them as needed, making sure you use the best one for each room.
A strategic position for an air purifier is at a point where it is closest to as many doors as possible without any obstructions. If your home has too many pollutants in the air circulating through it, special devices for indoor air quality can help. Molekule's PECO technology was developed over two decades by research scientists to address the problems of traditional air purifiers, which simply accumulate pollutants in filters. An air cleaner in every room can make someone feel more secure, but in reality, one or two air purifiers throughout the HVAC system are more than enough for most homes.
To maintain their effectiveness, air filters need to be changed when they become dirty and clogged. It is also important to make sure that the air cleaner has adequate airflow capacity and focus on a room with the worst air quality or where you spend most of your time.Ultimately, if you're on a tight budget and can't afford multiple air purifiers, choose a single medical grade HEPA air purifier with the portability for room to room purification. There are also devices with air quality detectors on the market that automatically adjust to increase their cleaning intensity according to air pollution.
