Choose the Air Filter That’s Best for Your Family’s Health 

Endless are the points to consider when it comes to absolute home comfort. Should you buy a high-efficiency AC system? Which size and brand of AC is right for your home? Are smart thermostats truly worth the money? And on and on it goes. 

Just when you think all the decisions have been made, another important question pops up: 

Which home air filter will be best for my family’s health? 

There are many types of home air filters you can choose from. Allergy prevention is a main goal for many families to keep healthy. 

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Home Air Filters 

HEPA filters are seen as the top filtration product by Stevenson Service Experts, as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the EPA. HEPA filters can destroy up to 98% of pollutants in your indoor air. These are the types of filters usually utilized in hospitals to destroy germs and keep people healthy, but Stevenson Service Experts offers them for home air filters. If there are any dangerous respirational health issues for anyone in the home, the experts suggest the investment of a whole-home HEPA air filtration system.

High-Efficiency Home Air Filters 

These bad boys remove 85% of your home’s air pollutants. Not only will high-efficiency home air filters help with relieving allergy symptoms, they also help your heating and cooling equipment operate more efficiently, ultimately decreasing energy costs which could save you money on utility bills year after year.

Standard Pleated Media Home Air Filters 

These are your more common home air filters and can be found at nearly all department stores. While pleated home air filters may come with a lower price tag, they also have to be switched out more often – every four to twelve weeks versus once a year like the whole-home HEPA and high-efficiency air filters. Since HEPA home air filters range from $60 to $100, for annual cost you’re looking at nearly the same price. Standard pleated air filters can remove up to 45% of the air pollutants in your home and the most important factor is the number of pleats per foot. The more pleats, the better the air flow, and the cleaner your famiy’s air will be.

Basic Fiberglass Home Air Filters 

The flat, fiberglass air filters are the most basic type of home air filter. These filters do not usually enhance your family’s air quality; instead, they were designed to protect the heating and air conditioning equipment from having larger contaminants get into the system and harm the parts. As a result, they aren’t successful at removing indoor air pollutants, but you can purchase them for about $1 each.
