Here at Hunter we understand the importance of your indoor environment, considering most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors. Often the air indoors is more polluted than the air outdoors, which can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.
Air purifiers help eliminate many of the tiny pollutants floating around your home. But choosing the right air purifier can be daunting. No need to worry - it's easy to determine the proper size of air purifier you'll need.
Pick a Location
Are you looking to purify the air in a bedroom, multiple rooms or a whole house? Decide where you want to place the air purifier.
Measure the Square Footage
After choosing the space, you'll need to determine the square footage.
- Single Room: To determine the square footage of a single room, use a tape measure to take measurements of two perpendicular walls and multiply the results. For example, if the room has two 10-foot walls, the total square footage would be 10 x 10 = 100 sq. ft.
- Multiple Rooms: If you want to clean the air in connected rooms, repeat the step above for both rooms. Once you have the square footage of both rooms, add the two values together. For example, if the first room is 100 sq. ft. and the second room is 150 sq. ft., the total square footage would be 100 + 150 = 250 sq. ft.
- Whole House: Do you still have the original paperwork from when you purchased your house? If so, the square footage of the entire home should be listed. If not, go outside and measure two perpendicular walls of your home. Multiple the results together, then multiple that number by the number of levels in your home. For example, if the outside square footage equals 1,000 sq. ft. and you have a two-story house, the total square footage would be 1,000 x 2 = 2,000 sq. ft.
Choose the Air Purifier
Choosing a properly sized air purifier is important because you can waste money and energy otherwise. If you want to purify a small bedroom or living room, it wouldn't make sense to purchase a large air purifier capable of cleaning a whole home. The air purifier would cost too much to operate.
