Can make baby relax and sleep faster
If you want to place an air purifier in your baby’s bedroom, there is an additional advantage. You may have heard of ‘white noise’. The sound of an air purifier can help a baby relax and fall asleep faster. A baby finds this sound soothing, because it corresponds to the sound from inside the womb.

Important factors for a bedroom air purifier
When you are convinced of the benefits of an air purifier for the bedroom, there are a number of factors that you should pay attention to. Of course you want to prevent that you cannot sleep due to the sound of an air purifier or that the display causes too much light.
A good air purifier for the bedroom:
- has a low noise level

Remote control can be very useful, because you can make settings from bed if necessary.
Where in the bedroom do you place the air purifier?
It is also very important to consider where you place an air purifier. An air purifier can be very large, which makes it impossible to place it on your bedside table. You may also want to aim the air purifier at your face: go for a rotatable air purifier.

Check the size of the bedroom
An air purifier is suitable for a maximum surface area. This has to do, among other things, with the CADR rating: this tells you how quickly an air purifier is able to clean a certain surface. If the room is too big for an air purifier, it will not be able to clean the room properly.
For each air purifier, the maximum cleaning surface is stated in the product description. Simply check how big your bedroom is and look for a model that is suitable for this.
Additional functionalities: heating and cooling
Finally, it is good to know that an air purifier can also have other functionalities in addition to cleaning the air. For example, there are Dyson air purifiers that can cool or heat the room. This can be useful when your bedroom quickly gets cold or warm.
