Air Purifier For Bedroom

Air Purifier bedroom

Did you know that the pollutant load in rooms, like your bedroom, is often higher than at a busy intersection? This is because our houses and apartment are too well insulated and pollutants that escape from carpets, floors, wall paints, or even furniture can not easily escape.

What helps pollutants in the bedroom?

The first thing most people try is proper ventilation in the bedroom, i.e. not just tilting the window open for 5 minutes, but preferably opening all windows at once. With this so-called cross-ventilation, the complete room air is changed within a few minutes and replaced by fresh air. If cross-ventilation is not possible, because you simply do not have windows facing each other or your entire household goods would fly away, then you can also shock-ventilate room by room individually.

But what if you are an allergy sufferer and opening a window in the bedroom is out of the question, you will need a small room air purifier.

When is a bedroom air purifier worthwhile?

Especially for people with allergies, asthma, or other lung diseases, dust mites or their droppings, pollen, or even mold spores can lead to serious and unhealthy irritations of the upper respiratory tract. So if you regularly deal with symptoms such as itchy eyes, cough, headaches, insomnia, and stuffy nose, then using an air purifier for the bedroom could well be a good idea.

If an air purifier is going to be used in the bedroom, then it needs to bring some special things to the table:

Low power consumption should definitely be a factor in the selection, after all, the device will operate for many hours.

Low volume is an absolute must in the bedroom. After all, what’s the point of having clean air if you end up not being able to sleep because the air purifier is as loud as a vacuum cleaner.

Getting a device without an ionizer is also important in the bedroom. Ionizers cause allergens and other substances to cluster and sink to the floor, but that can also mean that they sink onto the bed and then the exposure becomes even higher.

Despite all that, finding a suitable air purifier for the bedroom is not difficult, because most manufacturers know about the special needs of customers and integrate a special night mode into their devices.

The best bedroom air purifiers, in order to achieve maximum cleaning effect, use two systems. Firstly, HEPA filters are used for all non-volatile substances. They filter pollen and other allergens, as well as pet dander, house dust, and mold. Depending on the filter class, they can also filter bacteria and viruses. The second filter system that is used is an activated carbon filter, which with its large surface area is best suited to filter chemical contaminants and even odors from the air.

In order to filter as many impurities from the air as possible, buyers should opt for a combination of HEPA or ULPA filters and activated carbon filters. An ionizer is not recommended in bedroom air purifiers, as it can increase the pollution on the floor and in the bed.

The bedroom should be ventilated regularly even if you are severely allergic to pollen, but you should not sleep with the window open. The pollen load is higher in the city in the evening and in rural areas is higher in the morning.
