Air purifiers have become a popular solution for improving air quality inside living and working spaces. However, a common question is whether we need to close the door when using an air purifier or not. In this article, we will delve into details to better understand this issue.

1. The operating principle of an air purifier

Before exploring whether an air purifier needs to be closed, we need to understand how an air purifier works.

The machine operates based on the principle of circulating air in the room. Initially unpurified air is drawn into the machine through suction force, then passes through layers of air filters. This process helps remove dust particles and contaminants, making the air cleaner. After being purified, the air is blown back into the environment. Thanks to this mechanism, the air in the room is maintained in a circulating and cleaned state.

Using an air purifier brings many important benefits to health and the living environment:

Improving air quality: Air purifiers help remove dust particles, bacteria, pollen, and harmful particles from the air. This cleanses the air, making it safer to breathe and reducing the risk of health issues such as allergies, asthma, and respiratory diseases.

Closing the door during the operation of the air purifier is beneficial because it prevents the intrusion of unwanted air from outside. This way, the machine can focus on processing the air in the room more effectively. Moreover, closing the door also helps reduce the workload of the machine, thereby prolonging the lifespan and efficiency of the equipment and saving energy.

In practice, when the door is open, the air purifier still operates normally, but its performance is not as expected. When the door is open, the air purification process is interrupted, and outside air including dust and pollutants can enter the room. In that case, the air purifier needs more time to clean the air in the room again. Therefore, leaving the door open can affect the air purification ability of the machine.

4. Tips for using an air purifier effectively

Place the machine in a suitable location: Place the air purifier in a location with good airflow, near potential pollution sources such as windows, doors, or areas where different zones intersect. This helps the machine suck in dirty air for processing.

Close the door when necessary: When you want to maximize the efficiency of the machine, close the door tightly in the room. This prevents polluted air from outside entering and helps the machine focus on cleaning the indoor air.

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions: Monitor and adhere to the replacement schedule of the filters according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Clean filters help the air purifier operate at its best performance.

Consider the surrounding environment: In cases where it is not possible to close the door, consider the surrounding environment but ensure that the machine still operates at a high level of efficiency.

Adjust fan speed: Many air purifiers have the option to adjust fan speed. When you need to filter air faster, increase the fan speed; when the space has been cleaned, you can adjust the speed back to save energy.

Adhere to maintenance procedures: Regularly clean the surface of the air purifier and check the condition of the filters. This ensures that the machine always operates at maximum efficiency.

From this article, we can draw our own appropriate answers to each person’s situation. When using an air purifier, to achieve the best efficiency, we should consider closing the door of the space we are cleaning. However, it is not always necessary to close the door because it also takes time for the air to circulate by leaving the door open.
