Do you find the air quality in your home slightly stuffy?

Are you a pet owner tired of the dander and allergens kicked up by your beloved animals?

Maybe you’ve got someone in the house with allergies or asthma sick of those sensitivities being triggered by pathogens in the air.

Luckily, there are plenty of manufacturers who recognize that need and plug the gap with air purifiers tailor-made to cope with larger rooms.

OK…

You should now have a clear idea of the best options at your disposal if you’re looking to clean the air in a larger room.

We’ll round out today with some handy hints on how to make sure you get the right size unit for your needs the easy way…


II. Guide To Choose The Right Size for Air Purifier

Guide-To-Choose-The-Right-Size-for-Air-Purifier

If you want to make certain the air purifier you install works effectively and doesn’t end up overworked or drawing down too much power, it’s crucial you get the sizing right.

Fortunately, this is not too tough to get right and there are only 3 key areas to double down on:

  • Placement
  • Measure Your Living Space
  • Match Up Coverage Area of Purifier to This Living Space

Placement

First of all, determine whether you want to place your purifier in a single room or whether you want it to service multiple rooms.

You might also want whole-house purification.

By establishing this element front and center, you can whittle down your options from the get-go.

Now, it’s time to get out the measuring tape…

Measure Your Living Space

If you’re measuring up a single room, establishing the area in square feet is straightforward.

Measure up the 2 perpendicular walls then multiply these measurements to determine the square footage.

If you’re hoping to use the air purifier across several rooms, measure each separately and calculate the area. Then, simply add these figures together to arrive at the aggregate area you’ll be purifying.

For whole-house coverage, your deeds or other documentation like floor plans should state this clearly. Failing that, measure the length and width of the outside walls, calculate the area then multiply by the number of levels in your home.

Match Up Coverage Area of Purifier to This Living Space

You should certainly not be angling for the largest purifier unless your living space dictates this. Not only will you end up spending more at the point of purchase, running costs will be significantly higher into the bargain.

On the other hand, failing to get enough firepower for your space will leave you wishing you’d gone for something larger.

It’s a delicate balance but we’d suggest using the square footage of your home and shooting for an air purifier rated for this or very slightly above.


III. Conclusion

We trust you’ve chosen a suitable large room air purifier now and we hope, as always, you’ve found our reviews and buying guidance have streamlined an otherwise awkward purchasing decision.

If you take the above pointers on board and stick to one of the products we highlight here today, there’s no need to endure polluted or impaired air any longer.
