High efficiency particulate air filters, or more commonly referred to as HEPA filters, are highly effective at removing airborne particulates from indoor air. These filters can remove particles as small as 03 microns in size and are capable of filtering out as much as 99.7& of these airborne pollutants. HEPA filters are able to accomplish this feat by taking advantage of what is referred to as a diffusion filter. A HEPA filter contains a pre-filter that traps larger particles that could block air flow through the filter.
The Air Quality Association defines a HEPA filter as a filter that helps in removing dangerous and volatile airborne pollutants and irritants from indoor air. This process not only makes your home safer from the health risks associated with these contaminates but it makes the indoor air in your home easier to breathe. When it comes to affordability, HEPA filters are also one of the most readily available and cheapest air purification components that is available within the residential and commercial markets.
HEPA air filters have been in usage since the early 1940’s in medical institutions. They are particularly helpful with removing pollen, mold and other harmful airborne toxins from the indoor air. HEPA filters also help prevent the spread of harmful viral and bacterial diseases. In order for the filters to filter pathogens at optimal levels they need to be cleaned often.
Tips for HEPA Filters
When it is time to replace the HEPA filter make sure to always wear gloves and thoroughly cleanse your hands after removing the filter from the system. When you do so you will limit your exposure to harmful pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. If you do not have a whole house dehumidifier and humidity levels are above 90% indoors you should turn off the filtration system as high levels negatively affect the HEPA filter.
