An air purifier works to filter out impurities in the air, providing you with cleaner, fresher air at home.
Air purifiers come in different sizes, usually determined by the size of the area that they can cover. Their sizes however, make them quite easy to lug around the house and squeeze into a corner in the room.
How Big is an Air Purifier?
Apart from the specific coverage area of air purifiers, one other factor that can determine their size is the type or model of the purifier. There are stand-alone types and there also “pluggable” models.
Stand-Alone Air Purifiers
This type of air purifier is one which you can easily push into any corner of the room or place in other parts of the room.
How Big is an Air Purifier of this Model?
There are several sizes for a stand-alone air purifier.
A model that can cover around one thousand square feet measures approximately 28 inches in height by 16 inches in width by 15 inches in depth and can weigh anywhere between 29 pounds and 35 pounds.
If you only need an air purifier that can cover an area of up to 500 square feet only, there is also a model that is suitable for this specific requirement.
How big is an air purifier that can cover a maximum area of 500 square feet?
This type generally measures around 15 inches in length by 13 inches in width by 7.75 in depth and weighs about 10 pounds.
Now, if you only need to cover a small area there is also one that you may want to consider.
There is an air purifier that can only cover about 160 square feet of space.
The size of an air filter in this case is usually around 19.37 inches in height by 14.21 inches in depth by 15.39 inches in width. This type of air purifier is the “tower” model which basically means it is vertically-positioned.
Pluggable and Tabletop Air Purifiers
This type of air purifier is one which you can easily plug right into your power socket. This is usually used in bathrooms and smaller rooms in the house.
For this type, they are usually around 3.5 inches in width by 3.5 inches in depth by 11.25 inches in height.
Tabletop air purifiers also work in much the same capacity as the pluggable variety only this time the purifier is placed on top of the table instead of being plugged directly into the power socket.
This model generally has measurements of 6.5 inches in width by 6.5 inches in depth by 17 inches in height.
