Steps to decide the best location
Detailed steps are following but if you’re like me and don’t want to read a 1000 word article here is an short and quick answer for you
Place your air purifier in middle of the room or where the odor is felt make sure the air purifier has a space to breathe from all sides as an air purifier sucks air from your surrounding and clean it. Make sure it is near a electric port as you have bought an electric air purifier and you have to connect it. Try not to place it near bed cause you don’t want to hear “ harrr harr harrr “ when you are sleeping.
Let the air purifier Breathe
Most people get their first air purifier for their dorm room or their bedroom and just stick it to the corner. No, you don’t want to do that as most of the harmful airborne particles are not hiding in the corner like a mosquito. They are usually found in the center of your room, so it is better to place your air purifier in the center of the room. If you are living in a small space, you can put it in the corner but make sure the suction intake has some space to suck air in.
Distance from your bed
The distance of your air purifier from your bed should be at least 5 feet. I know it sounds a little too much but let me explain why. It is because an air purifieris an electric device, and it will make a little noise. Most of the new model air purifiers make less than 30db sound, but still, you do not want to hear an irritating sound while sleeping. One more reason for me was that I don’t want to see an air purifier every time I turn around while sleeping.
Place it near electric outlet
As I said earlier air purifier is an electric device, and it obviously needs power. Placing it near an electric outlet will put your life at ease because you will not have to get an extension wire for connecting your air purifier.
Keeping it away from other devices
Keeping it away from other devices and furniture will help the flow of fresh. If you place it in between other devices or furniture, the fresh air will not reach you directly, and that is not what you want. Sticking it In the corner will also interrupt the working of the air purifier; the air purifier won’t be able to do air scrubbing properly.
Vent facing you
you paid full for the air purifier, right? Now you want to take the great output of that air purifier. No, I am not talking about Turing it on and off for fun. Make sure its output vent is facing you directly as you want to breathe the fresh air right away. I suggest you place it 5 feet away from your bed and Face it directly to you.
