Should you get HEPA Filters in your Home

Solve Your Allergy and IAQ Issues with a HEPA Filter

Let’s face it – we all know that outdoor pollutants and also allergens can wreak havoc on our health. But – did you know that the air inside your home can contain more pollutants than the air outside? As odd as it probably sounds, it’s true. Indoor pollutants and allergens can definitely impact your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) and your health. Some of these pollutants include smoke, mold spores, pollen, cleaning solutions and animal dander. The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) even includes indoor air pollution on their list of the top 5 environment-related health risks. Purchasing an air filter can help solve indoor allergy issues and improve your home’s IAQ.

Here at Green Heating & Cooling, we suggest you purchase a HEPA filter to clean your home’s air. These high-quality filters use a number of filtering mechanisms and can capture both large and microscopic particles.

Purchasing a HEPA Filter for Your HVAC System

  • HEPA air filters have three main components that must be balanced to function well. Poorly balanced filters aren’t able to capture particulates properly, and those contaminants will enter your home. If you’re thinking about buying a HEPA filter, give us a call. We can provide some suggestions and help you avoid purchasing a low-quality filter.
  • While shopping for a HEPA filter, it’s also important to make sure it’s the right size for your HVAC system. If it doesn’t fit properly, unfiltered air will enter your home.
  • Ductwork can also play a large role in your home’s IAQ. If your air filter slot isn’t sealed properly or your ducts leak, unfiltered air can enter your home. When you’re ready to increase your home’s IAQ, contact Green Heating & Cooling. We can assess your ducts and air filter slot and ensure they are tightly sealed.
