Do I need to put a Air Purifier in every room of my home ?

In an ideal world, it would be very beneficial to have healthy air within the whole house but to start with, we highly recommend aiming for the rooms that you and/or your family spends a substantial amount of time in.

One machine in one room is NOT capable of cleaning the air in the full house. It is just like a split air conditioner. The room in which you have the split AC, that room gets cool. Similarly, the room in which you place the air purifier, will have clean air.
