Filters and Air Quality

Clean air doesn’t just happen. Your home is fitted with air filters to help remove harmful particles and debris from the air you breathe. Without them, our quality of life would be much different.

There are several ways that filters can ensure your air quality is the best it can be. Here are the factors to consider.

Clean Filters

The first step in obtaining higher quality air is to keep your filters clean. It doesn’t matter what type of filter you have, it will eventually get dirty and clogged from all the items that pass through. Dust, dirt, and debris will collect in the filter and start to hinder airflow.

A dirty filter that doesn’t let air pass through will cause your system to work harder, since it takes longer to adequately cool your home. This just costs you more money than necessary. On the air quality front, your filter eventually loses its ability to filter out the particles that would harm your air.

If you feel like your air quality has changed, or there’s a lot of dust collecting in your home, check your air filters and maybe consider changing or cleaning them more often.

Strong Filters

While clean air filters will help keep your air clean, a strong filter will provide extra protection against smaller particles. The best filter on the market is a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. According to the EPA, HEPA filters can filter up to 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns or larger, which includes mold, bacteria, dust, and pollen.

A strong filter will ensure your air is free from harmful particles that may be allergy triggers or will make your home dirty and uncomfortable. If you’ve kept up with your filter cleaning but are still unsatisfied with your air quality, try upgrading to a HEPA filter.
