HEPA Filters – A Practical Solution to Air Quality Issues
Just like outdoor pollution, indoor pollution is bad for your health. Depending on your situation, the air inside your home can actually be worse than the air outside. As crazy as it might sound, it’s true. Pollutants like smoke, mold spores, pollen, cleaning solutions and also animal dander are among the worst offenders. The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) even puts indoor air pollution on their list of the Top-5 environment-related health risks. Homeowners can alleviate most indoor air quality issues by installing an air filter.
Here at Modern Air Solutions LLC, we recommend you purchase HEPA filters. These high-quality filters use a variety of filtering mechanisms to catch both large and also microscopic particles.
Before Your Purchase a HEPA Filter
- Make sure you purchase the right size. Your HVAC system accepts a specific size air filter and it’s vitally important that you purchase the correct size. If it doesn’t fit properly, it’ll be unable to filter all the air before it enters your home.
- Make sure you purchase a good quality filter. HEPA air filters are made up of three main components that must be balanced to function correctly. Cheap filters are rarely balanced properly. This makes it impossible for them to successfully capture contaminants before they enter your home. Modern Air Solutions LLC can provide some suggestions and help you avoid purchasing a low-quality filter.
- Schedule an HVAC inspection. Unfiltered air can also enter your home through leaky ducts or also a poorly sealed filter slot. If you’re concerned with your home’s IAQ, give us a call. We can inspect your air filter slot and ducts and also ensure they are aren’t letting unfiltered air in.
