Running an Ozone Generator in your Home

You might be wondering how long to run your air purifiers to keep your air clean. There are many different things to keep in mind when using them, but it depends on which air purifier you’re using. For example, a HEPA air purifier or dehumidifier can be run at all times when it comes to air purification.

However, if it’s something like an ozone generator, it needs to be run on a certain amount of time. With the average room, you have to run an ozone generator for about 3 to 6 hours. This will ensure that your room will be clean and odor free without any chance of bacteria surviving.

When it comes to an entire house, DC 911 tells us it could take 26 to 30 hours to completely deodorize a house. This is only for one level, though. You may have to run it up to 40 hours if there’s more than one story. If it is more than one story, be sure to run it on the second floor considering ozone is a heavier gas.

Because of the three oxygen atoms that make up a molecule, the gas will float downward and get to the rooms that you don’t have the ozone generator in. Ozone is dangerous to breathe in, however. Never run an ozone generator while being in the same room.
