The best place to install an air purifier is in the breathing area, as close to your head as possible. This is usually done by placing it on a nightstand or nightstand near the bed in the bedroom. However, for optimal performance, it is best to suspend it on the wall. Having only one air purifier in the home is not enough to deal with all the different types of airborne pollutants.
Placing it correctly will reduce the amount of pollutants in the air and improve your health. It will also generate less noise, require less maintenance and less filter change. The best place to put an air purifier is near the entrance or windows with high moving air circulation that helps distribute clean air around the room. It should also be placed as close to sources of contamination as possible to capture contaminants before they spread.
Never place it in a closed corner, near electronic devices, or under a window. For optimal airflow distribution, avoid leaving it in tight spaces, such as under a shelf, inside a cabinet, or behind furniture, such as a sofa, bed or armchair. It should also be kept away from very humid areas, such as bathrooms. When you need to free up interior space and prevent the device from becoming a trip hazard, make sure there is at least 2 to 4 feet from the wall for proper flow circulation.
An air purifier should never be placed directly under windows or on the windowsill for an extended period of time. It is also important to keep all windows and doors closed when there is an air purifier in place. This will prevent clean air from escaping and dirty particles from entering the air. It will also prevent the air cleaner from overloading, since the workload is limited to the circulation of air in the room.
The size of the air cleaner does matter, as it determines the size of the filter, engine fan and number of technologies it can fit into. Therefore, consider the airflow capacity of the air purifier before placing it in a room. For example, if it can cover up to 200 square feet of room space, you should only place it in a room no larger than 200 square feet. You can refer to a table that details the best location of an air purifier for each room. Note that orientation is not as critical as placement and an air purifier works best when placed in an open space with few obstacles between itself and all directions. Finally, keep an air purifier away from appliances such as ovens, microwaves and TVs as they can cause interference since they operate at similar wavelengths.
Leave at least 2 to 4 feet between an air purifier and any electronic device.
