Important Informtion About Hepa Filters

Sep 15, 2008
These days almost every household has some sort of air purifiers, some are built into the homes heating and cooling systems and then there are the free standing portable models. With so many people suffering from asthma and allergies they are a very important item to own being that we can't seem to escape the airborne pollutants that exist in our homes. Although, they are not only a benefit for those with allergies but also for people who just like to improve the air quality they breath in their homes.

The name HEPA means High Efficiency Particulate Arresting. What this means is these filters really help to remove micron size contaminants from the surrounding air, including dust mites and bacteria. They also remove mold spores, pet dander, dust and pollen among several other contaminants that people with allergies suffer from. So it is no wonder there are so many brands and styles of air purifiers on the market.

There are many high quality air purifiers available today and you can easily find one to fit your style and budget. Some of the most popular models are made by Honeywell, holmes, Whirlpool and Kenmoor, among many other well known names.

hepa technology was developed by the US Atomic Energy Commission to remove radioactive dust from the air. One of the greatest benefits is that once the airborne pollutants get trapped in the hepa filter they are there for good and not able to be released back into the air. The only down side to this is that it can cause the filter to become clogged and therefore block the airflow. Although, they can easily be cleaned or replaced, your best bet is to make sure your system has a "pre filter". This will catch the large particles so they can not get trapped in the hepa filter. You will find that the filters will last up to 5-6 years. You can also find they offer an Ozone guard which removes all the ozone from the air so those with any debilitating breathing problems can breath completely clean air.

With today's environment and all the pollutants in our air, mold and mildew, a purifier is very beneficial. You can go online and find a variety of styles and prices to match your needs. I really believe this is an item we can all use whether we are allergic or not, the benefits outweigh the price they may cost.
