What Are the Most Important Rooms to Have an Air Purifier in?

January 20, 2020

Perhaps you’ve decided it’s time to get an air purification system in your home, but you don’t know where to put it. Let Comfort Masters Ltd. in Oshawa, ON, guide you in the process.

Rooms Where You Smoke

A good rule of thumb is to place an air purifier close to a source of pollution that needs to be controlled. Indoor smoke creates pollution in the form of fumes and particulates, so any room where smoke is generated is a candidate. Smoke can be created by several sources, including:

  • Fireplaces
  • Tobacco products
  • Stoves
  • Vaporizers and e-cigarettes
  • Candles and burned incense

Rooms Where Pets Spend Their Time

Another major source of air pollution in the home is pet hair and dander. If pets spend most of their time in certain rooms, those would be good locations for air purifiers. Controlling the rooms where pets are present can reduce the overall coverage needed. Otherwise, you may want to cover any common areas that you share with your pets in the household.

Rooms Exposed to Outdoor Air

The third major source of air pollution in the home is from outdoors. Rooms that have outdoor entrances or windows that are frequently open will need an air purifier. The sources of pollution from outside your home depend on whether you live in a city or in dry climate. Possible types of outdoor pollution include:

  • Sand and dust
  • Flower and tree pollen
  • Brush and forest fire smoke
  • Vehicle and industrial exhaust

Rooms Where You Spend Your Time

If you spend most of your time in one or two rooms, another strategy is to control the air quality in just those areas. This could be a more cost-effective approach, especially if only one member of the household needs better quality air.
