In this article you’ll learn how to determine the right size for your air purifier. This is an essential step when you’re going through the process of finding the right air purifier for your home.
Figuring out the right size is important so that the device can effectively clean the air in your home.
The worst thing you can do is to buy a device that is not powerful enough to clean the air around you.
For example: If your room is 200 square foot, you will need an air purifier with a maximum room coverage of at least 200 sq. ft. such as the Levoit Core 300 air purifier (215 square feet room coverage). A device like Rabbit Air MinusA2 has a room coverage of 700 sq. ft. which is way too powerful for your room.
First, Determine Where You Want to Place Your Device
The first factor is to determine where you want to place it. Do you want to purify the air in one room? multiple rooms or your entire house?
Next, Measure the Square Footage
For each room that you want to clean, measure the square footage for the space.
For a single room: Take a measuring tape and take measurements of the length and width of the room. Multiply the length by the width for the square footage.
For multiple rooms/houses: You will need to add up the square footage for all of the rooms.

Lastly, Match the Square Footage
The last step is to match the square footage from the air purifier with the one for your room(s).
Air purifiers come in a wide range of size and have different maximum square footage ratings.

It makes sense for you to buy a device that is fitting for the room that you are purifying. There’s no need to buy a device that cleans 1000 square feet when you live in a 300 square feet room.
