A Good HEPA Air Purifier is All You Need
To Improve Overall Indoor Air Quality
Air purifiers may look simple in design, but they significantly improve indoor air quality when installed professionally. Some are powerful enough to clean one room or area while others are designed to filter the entire air in a home. Some units can also have built-in filters, which help reduce airborne allergens and pollutants. But with many different types of filters available, which should you get for your home?
Why You Should Install a HEPA Air Purifier
While air purifiers are designed to improve indoor air quality, some work more effectively than others. As you browse through different units and their features, you’ll find that HEPA air purifiers are ideal for those who have allergies and respiratory issues. These are units fitted with a HEPA filter that effectively removes around 99.97% of airborne pollutants and allergens. Its MERV rating is 16, which is the highest protection it can provide for your home.
How MERV Ratings Work
Short for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, MERV ratings report a filter’s ability to capture larger particles between 0.3 and 10 microns. They make comparing the performance of different filters easier, with higher ratings usually meaning they’re better at trapping specific pollutants and particles.
Benefits and Features
HEPA air filters are designed to remove fine particles and allergens in the air. This means they filter out potentially harmful pollutants, including mold, mildew, pollen, dust, tobacco, smoke, and soot. They also filter out bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens before letting the air circulate throughout your home. This is a big deal if you or a family member has allergies or asthma since it keeps the indoor air quality clean and safe to breathe.
