Choosing the Right Air Purifier for Your Bedroom

Coverage

Before choosing an air purifier, you must make sure you’re purchasing for the right amount of square foot coverage. A large bedroom will require a unit capable of covering more square footage, such as the Alen BreatheSmart 75i which covers up to 1,300 square feet. An average bedroom would do well with a unit that can clean between 500 to 800 sq. ft. at their highest setting.

Concern Type

The right bedroom air purifier for you will depend on your air quality concern. Do you suffer from allergies, or have pets? Consider a unit with a HEPA filter. HEPA air purifiers are best for reducing allergens, and help asthma sufferers breathe easier. They can reduce up to 99% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. If your concern is odors from cooking or cleaning supplies, choose an air purifier with activated carbon that can absorb chemicals and odors in the air.

Noise Level

Having a noisy air purifier is less than ideal for a bedroom. If you’re a light sleeper, you’ll be happy to know that some air purifiers are built with noise in mind. The Alen BreatheSmart 45i, for example, has WhisperMax Technology meaning it operates nearly silently. It also emits a soothing pink noise that one study found helps people sleep 25% better.

Improve Sleep and Air Quality with a Bedroom Air Purifier

According to the American Psychological Association, 60% of adults claim to have sleep problems a few nights a week or more. Air quality is one of the many factors that can affect how well you sleep at night. Indoor air quality can often be worse than outdoor air, and your bedroom is no exception. Excess moisture trapped near shoes, books, or other common bedroom items can create mold, dust accumulation, and stuffy air from a lack of air circulation.

A recent study revealed that individuals who live in areas with high levels of air pollution are 60% more likely to sleep poorly, compared to those living with cleaner air. Indoor air pollution is caused by many factors, ranging from everyday cleaning products and construction remnants, to allergies and pet dander. If your home’s indoor air quality is poor, your sleep is likely to be less restful. This can lead to more severe issues, such as chronic sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation decreases your ability to concentrate, weakens your immune system, and worsens your memory.

The best way to improve your bedroom’s air quality and the quality of your sleep is to invest in an air purifier built to address each of your concerns. Get an air purifier for each of your bedrooms, and rest easy knowing you’re breathing the cleanest air possible.
