Using Multiple Air Purifiers: Pros and Cons

If you’ve been following our blog for any period of time, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve created several articles on the best air purifiers for various rooms in the home. While our picks are always based on the unique air quality challenges you’ll encounter in different parts of your house, they may have left you wondering about whether or not you should be using several air purifiers throughout your home. In this article, we’ll take a look at the pros and cons of using multiple air purifiers in different spaces so that you can make the best decision for your personal needs.

The Case for Multiple Air Purifiers

Simply put, the case for using more than one unit in your home is the fact that you can target contaminants in different rooms more effectively. For example, an air purifier used in a kitchen or bathroom may need to be better at targeting odors in order to remove the smells from harsh cleaning products. One used in a garage, on the other hand, may require a heavier focus on VOCs.

Similarly, different features can make different models better for various rooms. In your bedroom, for instance, it might make sense to select a filterless air purifier that will make no noise and allow you to get an optimal night of sleep.

What Are the Cons?

The only real downside to using several air purifiers throughout your home is the fact that it may be outside your budget. If this is the case, it’s better to get a single air purifier with enough capacity to cover your entire living space and target a broad range of contaminants. For buyers in this situation, it’s usually a good idea to get a combination HEPA and carbon filtered air purifier, since these units will be able to remove a wide variety of particles, gases and odors from your home air.
