Do air purifiers help you sleep better?
Of all the places in your home to have an air purifier, the most important place is the bedroom. Adults spend about a third of their day in their bedrooms. And, between playtime and sleeping 10 or 12 hours or more, children spend even more time in their bedrooms.
Besides that, plenty of studies show why sleep is necessary, and scientists are learning more about the exact mechanisms in play. But it doesn’t take a scientist to tell you that when you don’t get a good night’s sleep, you are more tired and grumpy and less creative and productive. All these issues are even more noticeable in children, whose lungs are more sensitive and who need more sleep than adults.
But bedrooms can be a source of allergens. Mold and mildew can grow in pillows from sweat and moisture that accumulates over time. Bedding is also a source of dust mite allergens, which can trigger allergic rhinitis and even asthma. Bedding can also be a source of VOCs, as new mattresses give off gases. That’s not to mention pollution from outdoors or dander from your furry friends indoors.
All of these things can irritate lungs and nasal passages and lead to less sound sleep, which makes an air purifier for the bedroom an increasingly popular choice for adults. An air purifier for sleep is even more important in children’s bedrooms.
Where to place a bedroom air purifier?
Bedroom air purifiers can help you sleep better by keeping the air clean and free of allergens, exhaust fumes, VOCs and other pollutants while you sleep. But where to place a bedroom air purifier?
The best place for an air purifier in the bedroom is close to the head of the bed, so sleepers are breathing freshly purified air. Of course, to use an air purifier while sleeping, especially if you place it near your head, you need a quiet air purifier for the bedroom that won’t keep you awake with fan noise. Fortunately, Blueair air purifiers work so quietly that you can not only sleep next to one, you might even have to check to make sure it is switched on. This makes Blueair air purifiers some of the best air purifiers for sleeping.
When choosing the size of air purifiers for bedrooms, look at the area they cover at five air exchanges per hour and make sure you do not under-size the unit.
The secret is HEPASilent™ technology, which delivers especially high performance, high efficiency and low noise by combining electrostatic and mechanical filtration technologies. This combination, pioneered by Blueair, achieves a 99.7% filtration efficiency of airborne particles down to 0.1 micron in size*, while delivering high Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) and whisper-silent operation. And on its lowest setting, a Blueair air purifier uses less electricity than a lightbulb.
Filters for traffic exhaust and VOCs
With available SmokeStop™ filters, HEPASilent™ technology adds activated carbon to effectively remove traffic exhaust, smog and airborne chemicals, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) plus PM2.5.
The high volume and weight of carbon, plus the low-density design and large surface area of the mechanical filter medium, mean SmokeStop™ filters last a long time without becoming clogged. And for the ultimate smoke and gas removal (up to four times faster), you can use a Blueair DualProtection™ filter with powdered, high-porosity coconut carbon.
