The Best Place For Your Air Purifier In Your Home
An air purifier should be strategically placed in your home, so where’s the best place for it? The location of your air purifier is contingent on a number of factors, so it may be different for everyone. One of the most important things to consider is where in your home has the most exposure to harmful airborne particles such as dust, dander, mold, mildew, or smoke. It’s also important to think about what fits most naturally in your home. Read on for more tips on the best place for your air purifier in your home.
Compact and Mobile Air Purifiers
If you own a small air purifier that can be easily moved from place to place, you’re in luck! The portable nature of smaller models gives you the flexibility of easily moving your air purifier from room to room as needed. Enjoy fresh air in the kitchen while you cook and in your bedroom when you’re ready for bed. While larger models are able to be moved as well, compact purifiers provide a special convenience value with more mobility.
Place Near Pollutants
If your purifier is too large to move from room to room throughout the day, the best location is the room in your house that contains the most harmful airborne particles. This is different for everyone so consider things like whether you cook often or where your pets most often reside. If your goal is to expose yourself to fresh air for the longest period of time possible, place your purifier in the bedroom so you can enjoy fresh air all throughout the night.
Other helpful tips:
- Place your air purifier near a source of odor. Your air purifier will help contain the smell, deterring it from spreading throughout the rest of your home. Some purifiers are built to control strong odors and are great to combat pet smells, mold, and mildew.
- Consider room size. This is extremely important to take into account as you run the risk of wasting energy and money when running a powerful air purifier in too small of a room. You could also place a small air purifier in a large room where the air purifier would be unable to filter the appropriate square footage. In this case, you will not reap the benefits of your air purifier as it will be unable to do its job. Each Guardian air purifier contains a three digit number at the end of its name, this is the square footage it will circulate and filter. Measure your space and refer to the recommended room size in the product’s description to properly place it!
- Steer clear of corners and enclosures. Air purifiers do their best work when they are surrounded by open space where air freely flows from all angles. When you place your air purifier in a corner, it may not be powerful enough to pull air from the opposite side of the room. When you place your air purifier in a confined space, such as between a wall and a couch, you are placing obstacles between the air and your air purifier.
With these tips in mind, find a space for your air purifier that best suits your home and lifestyle, while maximizing the product's cleaning potential!
