Where is the Best Place to Put an Air Purifier?

In today's world, air pollution is a major concern. With the rise of global warming and other environmental issues, it's important to take steps to protect yourself and your family from the harmful effects of air pollution. One way to do this is by using an air purifier. But where should you place your air purifier for maximum effectiveness? An air quality specialist would typically use an air quality monitor to measure where pollutants are most concentrated.

This can help you determine the best location for your air purifier. We tested the Shark Air Purifier 6, a large space machine; the company also has a less powerful model, the Shark Air Purifier 4.When choosing a location for your air purifier, it's important to find a safe spot that won't be damaged by heat or other elements. Placing an air purifier near a window, near a door, and especially on walls where air moves makes a lot of sense. It's also important to remember to remove the plastic wrap that the filter comes in before operating the air purifier.

HEPA filters can remove larger particles such as dust, pollen, and some mold spores while suspended in the air. We have also tested the more expensive Molekule Air Pro, which performed better at removing contaminants at its highest configuration. Some media outlets have incorrectly stated that HEPA filters do not filter below 0.3 microns and therefore cannot capture airborne coronaviruses. The Winix 5500-2 is a direct competitor to the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty, having a nearly identical clean air delivery rate (CADR) and offering 5.1 air changes per hour (ACH) in a 350 square foot space.

Having an air purifier that works effectively and having some fresh air in the room is practically impossible. We have published a separate guide for air quality monitors, which we have found are often the best way to better understand the effects of a purifier on air quality, even though they are separate devices that do not directly control the operation of the purifier.
