A good night’s sleep starts with the right bedroom air purifier. If you’re new to air purification in your home, the bedroom is a great place to start. Most of us should be sleeping for seven to nine hours in our bedrooms every night for adequate rest. That’s around a third of the hours in our day, making it the room where we spend the most time breathing in air.

The indoor air quality of your bedroom is crucial for your sleep quality and overall health. If you’re searching for a bedroom air purifier, you’re right to focus on improving the air quality in this room.

Benefits of a Bedroom Air Purifier

The air inside your home, including the bedrooms, can be more polluted than the air outdoors, and indoor air pollutants can negatively impact your health. Airborne allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and pet dander can circulate in your bedroom. Your mattress is the perfect place for dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, and mildew to accumulate, and you can breathe in these particles and odors directly from your bed or when they’re kicked up into the air around you.

If you wake up in the morning with a stuffy nose or other respiratory symptoms, airborne particles in your bedroom could be the culprit. Allergists commonly recommend a HEPA air purifier or air cleaner for people with allergies or asthma, but people without those health conditions can benefit from improved indoor air quality, too.

Indoor air pollution in the bedroom can take the form of gaseous compounds:

  • Mold spores and mildew may be present in your mattress or any damp areas around your bedroom.
  • Products, furnishings, carpets, and building materials in the space can give off volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • If your pet sleeps with you in the bedroom, pet odors can circulate in the air.
  • If anyone in your household smokes, it can find its way into your bedroom.

These gas pollutants can harm your health, and strong odors in the bedroom may worsen your sleep quality. Some air purifiers can remove both airborne particles and gases that circulate in your bedroom.

To get the maximum benefit from air filtration, be mindful of where you place the air cleaner. For a smaller bedroom, the placement may not matter as much, but if you have a large master bedroom, keep it by your bed in what researchers call the “sleep breathing zone” to improve the quality of the air you breathe every night.

Choosing the Right Bedroom Air Purifier

Bedroom air quality impacts your health and wellness, which is why it’s so important to find an air cleaner that can perform well in your space and address the pollutants in your home. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a guide to aid consumers in selecting the right air filtration system. The best bedroom air cleaner for your space depends on the types of particles or gases you want to remove.

HEPA Filtration for Airborne Particles

Medical-grade True HEPA (high-energy particulate air) filters are used in mechanical air purifiers and remove 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in size. Hospitals, laboratories, and other facilities use trusted HEPA filtration technology to get the benefit of cleaner air.

Pair HEPA Filtration with Activated Carbon for Bedroom Odors and Gaseous Pollutants

HEPA filtration alone removes airborne particles, not gases. If you need to remove VOCs or odors from mildew, pets, or cigarettes, you need a HEPA with activated carbon filter to remove these gaseous compounds.

Optional Ozone-Safe Ionizer to Boost Bedroom Air Filtration

Ionizers are electrical devices that enlarge airborne particles, making it easier for the air cleaner to eliminate these pollutants. You should avoid any portable air cleaners that intentionally produce ozone, a harmful lung irritant. The California Air Resources Board verifies which air purifiers produce little or no ozone, so look for models that have been certified by this trusted authority. Ionizers that can be switched on and off allow you to use this feature selectively.

Brightness and Noise Level

An air cleaner is only effective if it is running. Some air cleaners are loud and display bright lights. Noise or high brightness levels may discourage you from using your air purifier, especially at night when you need a quiet, dark environment to get good rest. That’s why it’s so important to consider how much noise and light a bedroom air cleaner generates. If it goes unused, indoor pollutants will continue to circulate in your bedroom.

Some air purifiers are designed for sleeping environments. Look for an air cleaner with a sleep mode or display lighting that can be switched off quickly and easily. You also may want a quiet air purifier, so look for a whisper-quiet model that still features a powerful fan for adequate air filtration. If you’re the sort of person who enjoys sleeping with background noise like a fan, the quietest air purifier may not be suitable for you. Instead, look for air cleaners that produce a soothing pink noise, a frequency that helps you sleep up to 25% better.

Other Considerations

The EPA recommends that you consider the air cleaner’s fan speed, run time, and clean air delivery rate (CADR) as you determine which model can handle your air cleaning needs. The CADR refers to how many square feet are in the room or area it can serve. An air purifier’s product description and packaging should indicate the CADR and the square footage of the room it serves.

You may wish to consider the air cleaner’s portability, too. A lightweight, sleek model is easy to move from room to room as needed. That way, you can benefit from continuous filtration of the air around you. At bedtime, you can return the air purifier to a spot near your bed.
