Where In My House Should I Place an Air Purifier?


Nursery and Bedroom

Sleep is one of the most important parts of a baby’s life. From the time a baby is born, till they are 3 months old, they require 14 to 17 hours of sleep in a day and 4 to 6 month old babies sleep for about 12 to 16 hours a day. Sufficient sleep would allow for healthy physical growth, a strong immune system and cognitive development. The installation of an air purifier in your baby’s nursery would reduce allergens in the air and ensure your baby gets sufficient deep sleep.


Living room

As they grow older and start to spend more time playing, purifiers could be useful in the play areas such as in the living room. However, make sure that the effective area of your air purifier is suitable for larger areas such as your living room!
