I stay normally in the living room (that measures 19 ft. * 14 ft. area) and my bedroom (that measures 11 ft. * 14 ft. area.) - My home has a 7.5 foot ceiling height in each room. I am told that Himilayan salt lamps work by emitting ions that GRAB the dust particles from the air and attract it to the stone surface to clear the air. In which room (my larger Living room or my smaller bedroom) should allow my 7 inch diameter * 10 inch tall saltlamp to work BEST? I believe this salt lamp has a 40 watt lightbulb in it. Does this technology matter if my home uses a Central Air heating system that circulates air all around the house?
