While it’s true that many home heating and cool systems come with a filter, these are included mainly to protect the equipment, not the people using it, and they do not effectively eliminate pollutants and contaminants. To truly keep the air in a home clean, a proper filtration or purification system is required. A HEPA filter is one of the more efficient air cleaning products available for improving indoor air quality.
A HEPA filter works to help keep your home clean by utilizing a three-stage filtration process:
- A pre-filter captures large particles such as dust
- A HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles from 0.3 microns or larger
- A V.O.C filter removes gases and odours
As the system is set up to remove these different types of pollutants and contaminants, a HEPA filter is a highly efficient and effective method of improving air quality in your home.
