Should you get HEPA Filters for your Home

Resolve IAQ and Allergy Issues with a HEPA Filter

Here in Kennesaw, we all know how much outdoor pollutants and allergens can impact our health. Did you also know that the air inside your home can contain even more pollutants than the air outside? As strange as it might sound, it’s true. Different types of contaminants and pollutants can seriously impact your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) and your health. Some common indoor pollutants and contaminants include pollen, cleaning solutions, mold spores, and animal dander. The EPA’s (US Environmental Protection Agency) list of the top 5 environment-related health risks includes indoor air pollution. If you need indoor allergy solutions or if you’re concerned with your home’s IAQ, consider purchasing a high-quality air filter. Research shows that properly filtering your home’s air will have a positive impact on your home’s air quality. The D. McKeon Heating & Air team recommends using a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to clean your home’s air. These high-quality filters use a variety of mechanisms and can capture both large and microscopic particles.

HEPA Filters and Your Heating and Air System

  • If you’re ready to purchase a HEPA filter, we encourage you to give us a call. We are happy to tell you which HEPA filters we recommend. HEPA air filters have three main components that must be properly balanced to function properly. Poorly balanced filters are unable to capture particulates properly, and those contaminants will enter your home. Give us a call; we can help you avoid purchasing a poor-quality filter.
  • When you’re shopping for a HEPA filter, it’s also important to make sure it’s the right size. If it doesn’t fit properly, unfiltered air will enter your home.
  • Ductwork can also play a large role in your home’s IAQ. If you have leaky ducts, they can allow unfiltered air to enter your home. In addition, if your air filter slot isn’t properly sealed, it can also allow unfiltered air to pass through. If you’re ready to improve your home’s IAQ, have D. McKeon Heating & Air assess your ducts and air filter slot.
