An air purifier is an effective instrument to optimize indoor air quality, to make the living environment more pleasant and to combat health problems. The effectiveness of an air purifier is highly dependent on the way in which it is used. Proper placement of a smart bet will multiply the effectiveness of the device.

Here are some tips for the best possible operation:

  • Place the device as centrally as possible. No one will quickly place an air purifier in the center of the room, but do not place the air purifier in a corner or behind/under another piece of furniture. Make sure there is at least 20 cm distance from the wall or other objects.
  • Let the air purifier work continuously. The greatest effect can be achieved by far if the air purifier works constantly and is not always moved from one room to another. If there is movement in a room, by people or through ventilation, dust is constantly being whipped up, so it will also have to be constantly controlled. If an air purifier has brought the air quality in a room up to standard, it can also quickly be reduced considerably if it is subsequently switched off. Take a look when sun rays shine in a dark room, a single movement of a blanket, curtain or pillow causes a cloud of dust to spread in the room.
  • Let the air purifier work in the highest, non-interfering, operating position. If no one is in the room, let the air purifier work as hard as possible, so that the air in the room is as clean as possible when the room is entered again so that you can keep the unit working even when you are in the room.
  • Ventilate, but in moderation. It is sensible and important to ventilate if there is insufficient ventilation, the CO2 values ​​in the room increase, which leads to dullness, poor concentration, and a low oxygen level. However, if too much airflow or draft is created by the ventilation, so much new air enters the room that the air purifier will not be able to keep up with it. So do not, for example, open two windows or a window and door opposite each other, but open one window and prevent drafts. This allows an optimum combination of cleaning and ventilation to be achieved.

Replace the filters on time. The effect of the filters decreases the longer they are used. Different manufacturers specify different service life for filters, but in general, it can be said that the filters in an air purifier will last for around a year. This is of course highly dependent on the circumstances, for example, if cigarette smoke has to be filtered, the lifespan will be shortened considerably. The best air purifiers for home are equipped with a system that warns the user that the filters need to be replaced, this can be a simple timer or a combination of a timer with the measured amount of pollution since the last “reset” where the filters have been replaced.
