Note when using an air purifier: Should it be on all day?

With the current pollution situation, using an air purifier in living and working spaces brings many health benefits. So should the air purifier be on all day? Is it necessary to close the door when using an air purifier? In this article, Meliwa provides some tips to help you use the air purifier effectively.

Benefits and limitations of running an air purifier all-day

Air purifiers have become an essential product in modern life. Using an air purifier all day helps ensure that your living environment is always filtered, especially in urban areas with high air pollution. However, when using an air purifier all day, users need to consider its benefits and limitations to ensure its effectiveness and their own health.

Disinfectant air purifier helps remove dust and harmful substances in indoor air, improve respiratory health, and strengthen the respiratory system. Additionally, air purifiers can also reduce symptoms of allergies, asthma, and respiratory diseases.

When using an air purifier all day, the filter in the machine can become saturated and lose its ability to filter properly, leading to harmful substances not being removed and possibly creating other harmful substances. Furthermore, using an air purifier for a long time can cause fatigue, headaches, and difficulty breathing.

Therefore, to ensure the air purifier works best and keeps the air in the room clean, you should use the machine for an average of 4 to 8 hours per day. This time is sufficient to remove harmful substances in the air and effectively improve the air quality in the room. If you want to use the air purifier for more than 8 hours a day, divide the usage time into several sessions throughout the day, such as using the machine for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. This will help prevent the filter from being overloaded and improve its performance.

In addition, you should also pay attention to cleaning and replacing the filter regularly to ensure the air purifier works best. You should clean the machine every 1-2 months. Cleaning the air purifier includes wiping the outer shell and cleaning the coarse filter with clean water. In addition to regular cleaning, you should replace the filter every 6 months to 1 year. This is one of the important factors in ensuring the effectiveness of the air purifier.

Optimizing the effectiveness of an air purifier when closing the door

One thing to keep in mind when using an air purifier is that it operates by circulating and filtering pollutants such as bacteria, allergens, pet dander, and other things from the air. The way an air purifier for home works is by continuously drawing air from the room and filtering it through the layers of filters within the machine.

In reality, while the air purifier will still function normally when the door is open, it will certainly not be as effective as desired. If you open a window, the filtration process will be disrupted as the air in the room will constantly have new dust particles and harmful chemicals from outside flying into the room. Additionally, you should also place the air purifier in a suitable location to ensure it operates most effectively.

An air purifier will still function normally when a room is open, but the filtering efficiency is not as quick or effective as when you close the door. Meliwa air purifiers have dust sensing and automatic adjustment of fan speed and filtration mode depending on the level of air pollution.

However, closing the door also has some limitations. If there is not enough air circulation in the room, harmful chemicals and bacteria can accumulate in the room and may be harmful to your health. This is especially true on hot days when you need ventilation to reduce the temperature in the room.

Therefore, when using an air purifier in a room, you should close the door for a short period of time, such as 30 minutes to 1 hour, to ensure the machine operates most effectively. After that, you should open the door to allow for air circulation and keep the room well-ventilated.
