Before installing your air purifier, it is first recommended to understand its operation, its mechanism so as to judge its effectiveness. Different air purification technologies exist, but they can be combined.
A majority of air purifiers are purifiers of capture: understand that the purifier has the mission to suck air from your home, to capture the particles or polluting molecules, and then propel it into a healthier state in the room. To do this, the purifier uses one or more filters, each of them playing a specific role.
There are also other methods of purification, called transformation or elimination. These are, for example, purifiers by photocatalysis, by plasma, by UV, or by ionization.
If it is recommended to install at least one air purifier per room, you can first install your air purifier in the room that you consider the most polluted. If you suffer from respiratory diseases, asthma, or allergies, then it is best if the device is installed in the room where you spend the most time, whether in your bedroom or office.
Also, be aware of poorly ventilated areas such as garages or laundries that earn a lot to be equipped with this kind of equipment. In any case, we recommend you choose a compact model that can be easily transported everywhere so that the air around you is always pure and healthy.
How to install your purifier in a room?
The installation of an air purifier does not require any special know-how since this kind of product is often delivered assembled and ready to use. Depending on the type of power supply, you will only need to connect it to a power source or a USB port.
Regarding its location, you will have to rely on its user manual, because some models can be installed on the ground while others must be in height to be effective. Once the installation of the air purifier is complete, you will only have to check from time to time if it is necessary to maintain it by changing its filters. HEPA and activated carbon filter purifiers are usually designed to operate for one year with the same filter.
Where to install the air purifier?
You can install your purifier anywhere you want. You know better than anyone the room that you think is the most polluted at home.
If you are allergic or if you have asthma or breathing problems, it would be best to install the purifier in the room where you spend most of your time, in your bedroom or your office, for example. This does not prevent you from installing an air purifier in your bedroom if you are in good health. Clean and pure air during sleep; it can only do you right.
If you have a laundry room or garage that is not well ventilated, you can also install an air purifier. Mold and bacteria proliferate in a poorly ventilated and not very sunny place. Although these places are generally less crowded than other rooms, bacteria can reach you easily.
For smokers, the purifier should be installed where smoking is used. You will find that your home will not stink at all times of the day. The most for smokers: they will no longer be told to go outside to smoke!
Same for those who love to cook. Even though the smells of cooking shimmer deliciously nostrils and wake up the appetite, know that these smells are very often a source of respiratory problems. Some condiments are also allergens, such as peppers, smells of seafood, etc. For all these reasons, an air purifier in the kitchen will not be luxury for the blue cords.
If you receive guests, we advise you to install a purifier in your living room. Do not forget that every human being has heat and bacteria. This will alleviate the air you breathe.
Some people have their cleaners in the ventilation ducts. Admittedly, it works properly, but the level of pollution only decreases slightly.
