The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends using an air purifier in public spaces

Using an air purifier for office spaces and other public spaces

Whether you have a business, or work from an office, the EPA has sent out a recommendation that using air purifying technology can help reduce airborne contaminants, including particles containing viruses.


HVAC filters are often used in large buildings or homes that have centralized air systems. They can filter dust, pollen, pet dander, and other small particles.


All Coway purifiers use filters with HEPA technology—the highest filter standard for reducing the danger of growth over time from small contaminants like bacteria and viruses.


By themselves, portable air cleaners and HVAC filters are not enough to protect people from the virus that causes COVID-19. However, when used along with other best practices recommended by CDC and others, filtration can be part of a plan to protect people indoors.

Where to place the air filter

Where you place your purifier in the room doesn’t change the effectiveness of the machine. Be sure, though, to place it where the air will not directly blow from one person to another. This can reduce the potential spread of droplets that may contain viruses or other contaminants.


Using an Airmega

Not all purifiers are equal. Air purifiers with a HEPA filter, like Coway Airmega’s smart air purifiers, help to eliminate certain particulate matter and other pollutants from your commercial or industrial business. The wifi-enabled Airmega 300s and Airmega 400s are perfect for larger spaces, and you can monitor your air quality remotely with your Coway Airmega mobile app. If you have to choose between rooms, it’s best to place the device in rooms where people will spend the most amount of time.
