    How to Find the Best Air Purifier 

  • Determine the room size
  • Choose a room-sized air filter. You can usually find this information on the product packaging or specification sheet.

  • Identify the specific pollutants you want to remove
  • Different air purifiers clear dust, pollen, cat dander, smoke, and chemicals. Determine which pollutants you want to remove and choose an air purifier designed to target those pollutants.

  • Consider the type of filter
  • HEPA filters are the most common and remove small particles, but activated carbon filters and UV-C light filters may also be useful based on your needs.

  • Look for additional features
  • Some air purifiers have air quality sensors, automated shutoff, and remote control. Consider which features are essential to you, and choose a purifier that includes those features.

    11 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Air Purifier

  • Choose the right size
  • Choose a room-appropriate air filter. A large purifier wastes energy and is ineffective.

  • Place it properly
  • Place your air purifier in a central location in the room, away from walls or furniture that could block airflow. Make sure it's not in direct sunlight or near sources of heat.

  • Run it constantly
  • Run your air purifier constantly for best results. This ensures that the air in the room is continually being cleaned.

  • Change the filter regularly
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions for changing the filter. A dirty filter can reduce the effectiveness of your air purifier.

  • Keep windows and doors closed
  • Close windows and doors while running your air filter to keep outdoor pollutants out.

  • Maintain proper humidity
  • Air purifiers work best with 30%–50% room humidity. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers keep the air humid.

  • Clean the air purifier
  • Dust and dirt can accumulate outside, reducing its effectiveness. Clean the outside of the purifier regularly with a soft cloth.

  • Use with other methods
  • Air purifiers improve indoor air quality. Use it with other air purifying methods, such as proper ventilation, cleaning, and avoiding smoking indoors.

  • Consider your lifestyle
  • If you have pets or allergies, choose an air purifier to remove pet dander and allergens.

  • Understand its limitations
  • Air purifiers can't clear all pollutants like carbon monoxide. Make sure you understand its limitations and use it appropriately.

  • Check the air quality
  • Use a quality meter to test your air purifier. This can help you decide if your home needs air quality improvements.
