HEPA filters are among the best AC filters you can get, and are quite beneficial for people with flu symptoms or asthma.
- HEPA stands for “high efficiency particulate air,”.
These are filters that can remove almost 100% of airborne particles that measure 0.3 microns. However, HEPA filters tend to be more expensive than other types of filters. Plus they require replacement more frequently. Washable filters tend to cost less than HEPA, and they can be reclaimed after being washed in soap and water. Furnace filters are the most affordable, but they only last a month or two before needing a replacement. When you want to buy an air filter, it’s essential to consider the size of your Heating & A/C equipment, plus the level of allergens in your home. HEPA filters are great at removing allergens, but washable filters are a more budget-friendly option. I always go for a HEPA filter because I have cats and I am allergic to them. Having a good filter works out well for my health and comfort. I sneeze because of pollen and dust too, so having the HEPA filter to eliminate these allergens from the air is entirely important for me. I also have an air purification system, an ionizer design, and it also has a HEPA in it so I’m pretty much covered when it comes to contaminants in the air in my flat. My friend got me a ppm meter and it has been measuring in the excellent range since I set it up. Have a good day.
