Where should I place my air purifier?

Where in my home?

For optimal results, your air purifier should be placed in the room where you spend the most time, or where the air quality is the worst.

If your asthma or your allergies keep you awake at night, running your air purifier in your bedroom sounds like the best choice.

If you wish to get rid of specific odors (smoke or kitchen odors), keep the air purifier in the room where the odor is the strongest.

Where in the room?

The two main factors to consider when deciding where to place your air purifier is the air flow and air circulation. Where in the room would the air purifier create the best air circulation?

Air purifiers have an inlet where the polluted air is drawn in and filtered, and an outlet where clean air is pushed out. Place the air purifier where the air can circulate freely in, out, and around the unit, away from walls, furniture and other objects that may stop the air flow.

Recommendations for the placement of your air purifier:

  • Place it at least 10 cm/4 inches away from any potential obstacles
  • Avoid corners
  • Place the air purifier as close as possible to the pollution source
