HEPA Filter Benefits

HEPA Filter Benefits

Air – one of life’s necessities. But that doesn’t mean the air we breathe is always clean.

Take indoor air, for example.  According to the EPA, it’s twice as polluted as outdoor air (on average). It can be up to one hundred times more polluted. That’s enough to give any home owner pause, especially when you have allergy and asthma sufferers living under the same roof.

On the plus side, you don’t have to live with polluted air.  In fact, there are numerous ways to clean it, but none more effective than a whole-house air filter with a HEPA filter. There are numerous advantages to HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters, including the following:

  1. HEPA filters can remove more than 99% of all airborne pollutants 0.3 microns or larger. How small is a micron? This microscopic particle in less than 1/25,400 of an inch long.

 

  1. Allergy sufferers can benefit greatly from air purifiers, HVAC systems, and vacuum cleaners that contain HEPA filters. The airborne particles that trigger common allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes are relatively large and can be trapped easily by a HEPA filter.

 

  1. HEPA filters integrate seamlessly with AC and forced air heating systems. They’re installed inside air ducts so that you won’t see them, but they’ll still be working hard to keep pollutants out of your lungs. HEPA filters also provide the option of circulating heavily filtered, fresh outdoor air.

 

  1. While the Department of Energy (DOE) specifies that HEPA filters used by DOE contractors must remove at least 99.7% of pollutants, there is no such regulation in place for the residential sector. Even so, many manufacturers of high-quality filters test and certify that their filters meet DOE standards. Look for the True HEPA or Absolute HEPA label.

 

  1. HEPA filters are great for new parents as they help protect the newborn from immune and respiratory issues.

 

  1. Expect to replace HEPA filters more frequently than traditional filters. As they trap particulates in the air, HEPA filters can become clogged twice as fast as non-HEPA filters. Follow the manufacturer recommendation for tips on how often to replace them.
