The air quality inside your home can have a significant impact on the health and comfort of you and your family. Indoor air pollution is considered one of the top five environmental health threats by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
Poor indoor air quality is often caused by old, dirty filters that allow mold, dust, and other contaminants to build up in your home’s system. The most effective way to maintain healthy indoor air quality is to replace your old filter with a new filter every 90 days.
What are the Different Types of Air Filters for Homes?
Air filters are not only used in industrial settings. They also play a major role in the health and well-being of your home and family. The following are some of the types of air filters:
- HEPA filters
HEPA filters are used in conjunction with a controlled airflow system to remove airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns from a room, resulting in cleaner air and a healthier environment in homes.
- Ultra Violet light filters
Keep your HVAC system clean and in tip-top shape with UV light filters. These air filters use ultraviolet light to kill up to 95% of all mold, bacteria, viruses, germs, and other pollutants floating around in the air. Using these filters will drastically reduce allergic reactions triggered by dirty and contaminated filters. Rest easy, knowing that everyone who breathes your air is breathing a little easier and a lot cleaner.
- Electrostatic filters
Air filters are electrostatically charged, allowing the filter to capture up to 30% more dust, pet hair, and other particles than regular HVAC filters. The filters don’t just match MERV 8 performance; they offer a MERV 11 performance rating.
- Pleated filters
Pleated Filters are made with synthetic media designed for greater dust holding capacity and longer service intervals, which can help save on energy costs. The filters are available in standard and custom sizes to fit your HVAC system and are rated MERV 8, which can reduce the chances of clogged coils, poor airflow, and reduced efficiency. The frame is constructed with a cardboard frame to help prevent air bypass, ensuring the filter stays in place during installation.
Air Filters for Homes are easy to install and highly effective at capturing many different types of pollutants. They come in various sizes, so it’s easy to find one that will fit your furnace or air conditioning unit. Many are even electrostatically charged and can capture very small particles.
