At Abestorm, we understand the critical role these devices play in enhancing indoor air quality. However, even the most advanced Air Scrubbers, like those in our collection, can only perform optimally when placed correctly.

This blog aims to shed light on the strategic placement of air scrubbers in your home or office. Whether you're a first-time buyer or looking to optimize your current setup, this guide will help you make informed decisions about where to place your air scrubbers for the best results.

Understanding Air Scrubbers

Before delving into the placement of air scrubbers, it's essential to grasp how they function. Air scrubbers work by drawing in polluted air, filtering out contaminants like dust, pollen, smoke, and pet dander, and then releasing clean air back into the room. The efficiency of this process largely depends on the scrubbers 's design and technology. Abestorm’s air scrubbers, for instance, are equipped with advanced filtration systems that capture a wide range of airborne particles, ensuring a cleaner and healthier indoor environment.

Key Features of Abestorm’s Air Scrubbers

Abestorm’s air scrubbers stand out for their superior filtration technology. They are designed to tackle various pollutants, including VOCs and microscopic allergens, making them an ideal choice for homes and offices. The  scrubbers are also engineered for maximum airflow and distribution, ensuring effective purification across the entire room.

The Significance of Proper Placement

The placement of an air scrubber is crucial in maximizing its efficiency. An improperly placed air scrubber may not only be less effective but could also impede the circulation of air, rendering it less efficient in purifying the entire room. Understanding the dynamics of airflow and room layout plays a significant role in determining the best spot for your air scrubbers.

Factors to Consider Before Placement

Matching the Air Scrubbers’s Capacity with Room Size

It's vital to choose an air scrubber that matches the size of your room. A small purifier in a large room may not effectively clean the air, while a large purifier in a small room could be overkill. Check the specifications of Abestorm’s air scrubbers to find the one that suits your room size.

Tips for Calculating the Appropriate Size

To determine the right size, measure your room’s square footage and match it with the purifier’s Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR). The CADR rating indicates the volume of filtered air an air scrubber delivers, with higher numbers signifying more efficient purification.

Source of Air Contaminants

Common sources of indoor air pollution include cooking fumes, pet areas, smoking zones, and high-traffic areas. Placing your air scrubbers near these sources can significantly improve their effectiveness in capturing pollutants.

Positioning your air scrubbers close to the pollution source helps capture contaminants before they disperse throughout the room. However, ensure it’s not too close to high heat or moisture sources, especially in kitchens.

Airflow in the Room

Airflow patterns in a room can affect how pollutants circulate. Observe the natural airflow and place your purifier in a spot where it can easily draw in and circulate air.

Ensure your air scrubbers are not blocked by furniture or walls. It needs ample space for air intake and exhaust to function efficiently.

Ideal Placement in Different Room Types

Living Room

In living rooms, a central location, or near the most common activity area, is ideal. This placement ensures even distribution of purified air. Avoid placing the purifier where it can be easily knocked over or obstructed by furniture. Also, consider foot traffic to prevent the purifier from becoming a tripping hazard.


For bedrooms, placing the air scrubbers near the bed, but not directly beside it, is advisable. This ensures you breathe purified air while sleeping without the disturbance of airflow directly on you. The closer the scrubber is to your bed, the more effective it will be in providing you with clean air throughout the night. However, maintain a reasonable distance for comfort.


In kitchens, place the scrubber in a location where it can effectively capture cooking fumes and odors, but away from heat sources and high moisture areas. Ensure the purifier is at a safe distance from stoves and ovens to prevent any potential damage from heat exposure.

Home Office or Study Room

In a home office or study room, place the purifier near your work area but ensure it doesn’t obstruct movement or take up workspace.

Children’s Rooms and Nurseries

In children's rooms and nurseries, the air scrubbers should be placed out of reach of young children to ensure safety. Additionally, consider a model with low noise output, like those from Abestorm to avoid disturbing the child's sleep.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Placing Air Scrubbers in Corners or Tight Spaces: Avoid placing air scrubbers in corners or cramped spaces as it can restrict airflow and reduce efficiency. The purifier needs space to draw in and expel air effectively.

Ignoring the Manufacturer’s Guidelines: Always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific placement recommendations. Abestorm provides detailed instructions for each of its air scrubber models. 

Overlooking the Need for Regular Maintenance: Regular maintenance is crucial for keeping your air scrubbers functioning at their best. Neglecting this can lead to reduced air purification efficiency.

Maximizing Your Air Scrubbers’s Efficiency

Regular Maintenance Tips

Regularly clean and replace filters as recommended. Check the user manual of your Abestorm air scrubbers for specific maintenance guidelines.

Combining Air Scrubbers with Other Air Quality Improvement Methods

Consider using your air scrubbers in conjunction with other air quality improvement methods, such as maintaining good ventilation and using indoor plants.

When to Run Your Air Scrubbers  for Optimal Results

Running your air scrubbers continuously is often recommended for best results. However, if this is not feasible, focus on using it during high-pollution activities or peak allergy hours.


In conclusion, the placement of your air scrubbers plays a pivotal role in its effectiveness. By considering room size, pollution sources, and airflow, and by avoiding common placement mistakes, you can significantly enhance your indoor air quality. Remember, an air scrubber is an investment in your health, and proper placement ensures you get the most out of this investment.
