HEPA filters for indoor air quality – Highly Efficient Filters
Due to more concern about the quality of indoor air, there has been a rise in questions about the benefits that HEPA filters can offer and how you can keep your family healthy by installing them into your HVAC system. Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions about whether this type of filter is a good fit for air filtering. We are your local choice for highly efficient filters.
A high-efficiency particle arresting (most often abbreviated as HEPA) filter is incredibly efficient at removing airborne particles that are .3 microns or larger. So it can remove hair and fur that are in the air.
Particles that are near or about .3 microns in size are invisible to the human eye, but hair and fur are all too visible and can remove by less sophisticated filters such as pre-filters. If the unit does not contain this type of inexpensive filter, then the HEPA filters will take them out of circulation.
Because a filter doesn’t care about the source of the particles, it is good for all normal indoor pollutants. That means it can remove dust, dust mites, mold and mildew spores, as well as airborne bacteria and viruses down to .3 microns.
A HEPA can remove these airborne particles. A purifier with variable filtration speeds can give you the option of speeding up filtration when there is a lot of it in the air and slowing it down when there is less of a need for it.
The ultimate air cleaner for particles should have not only HEPA filters, but several pre-filters, and a carbon enhanced filter. That way one purifier can do everything you need it to when you have a cat as part of your family. Installing the HEPA filters is also pretty easy. All you got to do is just follow the instructions in the manual. All are explained step by step, and there is no hassle in getting the think set to start operating.
