HEPA Filters Can Be Worth the Cost, Especially for Allergy Sufferers

HEPA Filters Can Be Worth the Cost, Especially for Allergy SufferersOur homes are supposed to be our sanctuaries, but for the millions of allergy sufferers who battle with sensitivity to mold, pet dander, dust and household chemicals, there’s no relief from airborne irritants. Or is there? If you or a family member battle with airborne allergies, help may be as simple as replacing your old air filter for a cleaner alternative that will freshen the air without a lot of excess effort.

Getting a fresh start

If you want to vastly improve the overall air quality and comfort in your Peachtree City home, you can’t make a better investment than a HEPA air filter. HEPA is an acronym that stands for “high efficiency particulate air,” these air filters trap almost all of the impurities that come through your home, meaning cleaner, fresher air for your entire family. How much cleaner and fresher? A quality HEPA filter can remove 99.7 percent of all impurities in the air.

Installing your new HEPA filter

When shopping for filters, make sure you get the real deal. Avoid words like “HEPA-like” and make sure the filter you’re purchasing not only fits your air purifying system, but traps more than 99 percent of air particles. Then follow these steps to fresher air:

  • Unplug your air purifier from the wall and remove the access panel that holds the old air filter. Remove the used air filter and dispose of it properly.
  • Brush away any dust or debris that’s left behind. If appropriate, you may wish to turn the purifier upside down to remove all particles.
  • Observe the flow arrows on your HEPA filter to help you guide it into the proper position. Place it gently into place, never forcing it to fit.
  • Carefully plug the unit back in and turn it on. Observe the air purifier for a few moments to ensure that it’s working properly.
