Air purifiers play a crucial role in creating a healthy living environment and safeguarding our health. To ensure the machine operates effectively and brings maximum benefits, we need to use air purifiers properly and intelligently. Below are the most effective ways to use air purifiers in 2024.
1. Choose the right air purifier for capacity and room area
When choosing an air purifier, you should consider the area and volume of the room that needs air filtration. In the machine’s specifications, the manufacturer often clearly states the recommended area and volume that the machine can best handle.
Choosing a machine with a capacity that is too large for the room space guarantees clean air, but the machine’s full capacity won’t be utilized, leading to wastage. Simultaneously, machines with high capacity are often accompanied by high prices.
Meanwhile, if you choose a machine with a capacity that is too small compared to the room space, the machine may not be able to meet the air filtration needs and not achieve the desired effect. The machine must operate continuously, wasting electricity and reducing the machine’s lifespan. Areas away from the machine may not be guaranteed to have clean air.
Choosing an air purifier with the appropriate capacity helps ensure that the machine can handle the amount of air in the room effectively and quickly.
2. Place the air purifier in the correct position
The placement of the air purifier plays a crucial role in its performance. Place the machine in a place with good air circulation and near sources of pollution such as windows or doors. Avoid placing the air purifier in a closed corner or where there are obstacles in front of the machine to ensure optimal air filtration.
Place the air purifier at least 20cm from the wall and at least 50cm from the ceiling
The air purifier should be placed at least 20cm from the wall and at least 50cm from the ceiling. At the same time, do not place the device too close to the bed or body, this will help avoid colds, dry throat or difficulty breathing while sleeping.
3. Change the air filter periodically
Replace the filter periodically according to the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the air purifier operates effectively.
Coarse filter: is the first filter of the air purifier, with the purpose of removing large dust particles, pollen, hair, and animal fur. For this filter, you do not need to replace it, just clean the filter every month. IIf the coarse filter is excessively dirty or clogged, it can be removed for rinsing with water.
Activated carbon filter: has the function of removing pollutants that cause unpleasant odors, toxic chemicals and cigarette smoke in the air. The time to replace activated carbon filters is usually between 6 to 12 months, depending on the level of air pollution and filter capacity.
HEPA filter: is the most important filter layer in the air purifier, helping to remove microscopic dust particles, bacteria and viruses in the air. HEPA filter replacement time is usually about 12 to 24 months, depending on the level of air pollution and filter capacity. Regularly replacing the HEPA filter will ensure the air purifier operates effectively and provides healthy air for your living space.
In addition, you need to clean the surface of the machine regularly, making sure the machine is placed in a clean environment to avoid dust and impurities sticking to the machine.
