When It Comes to Air Filtration, Consider HEPA Type Options

April 3, 2014 | Blog

If you’re looking to improve your home’s indoor air quality, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters should be considered as a solution. These filters are capable of removing the harmful bioaerosols and microorganisms that are dangerous to your, your family’s and your home’s health.

What are HEPA Air Filters?

HEPA filters are mechanical air filters, which means that they work by trapping small particles that pass through in a mesh. It can remove particles like:

  • pollen

  • dust mites

  • tobacco smoke

These are the most common particles in your home’s air that are bad for your health. They can trigger allergies, cause discomfort and sometime cause respiratory illnesses.

Why Choose HEPA?

There are other types of filters on the market, but none can clean your air as effectively as HEPA filters. A high-quality HEPA air filter can have an efficiency of up to 99.97%.

There are also many options to fit your air filtration needs if you’re looking into HEPA filters. They can be used for whole-house cleaning systems with your HVAC system, in portable air cleaners that can be moved around your home or office and even in some vacuum cleaners to prevent re-release of dirt into your home.

What Else You Can Do

Using an air filter should only be one part of your plan to keep your indoor air quality high. Equally important is performing regular maintenance on your HVAC system to prevent buildup of dust and debris that could circulate in your home. Finally, regular cleaning like dusting and vacuuming can go a long way to improving your air quality.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
