Which Air Filter is Right for Your Health 

There’s so much to consider when it comes to perfect home comfort. Should you invest in a high-efficiency air conditioner? Which size and make of system is right for your home? Are wifi thermostats truly worth the money? And on and on it goes. 

Just when you think you might have made all the decisions there are to make, another essential question pops up: 

Which home air filter is best for my health? 

There are several kinds of home air filters you can choose from. Allergy prevention is a big objective for many families to be healthy. 

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Home Air Filters 

HEPA filters are considered the top filtration product by Calverley Service Experts, as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the EPA. HEPA filters can eliminate up to 98% of pollutants in your home’s air. These are the types of filters commonly used in hospitals to remove germs and keep people healthy, but Calverley Service Experts provides them for home air filters. If there are any critical respirational health issues for anyone in the home, the experts suggest the installation of a whole-home HEPA air filtration system.

High-Efficiency Home Air Filters 

These filters remove 85% of pollutants in your home’s air. Not only will high-efficiency home air filters aid in reducing allergy symptoms, they also help your heating and air conditioning systems function more efficiently, ultimately cutting down on energy costs which could save you money on utility bills year after year.

Standard Pleated Media Home Air Filters 

These are your more typical home air filters and can be found at most department stores. While pleated home air filters may cost less, they also have to be changed more often – every 30-90 days versus yearly like the whole-home HEPA and high-efficiency air filters. Since HEPA home air filters cost anywhere from $60-$100, for annual cost you’re looking at six with one, half a dozen with the other. Standard pleated air filters can eliminate up to 45% of pollutants in your home’s air and the biggest factor is the number of pleats per foot. The more pleats, the better the air flow, and the cleaner the 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 generally improve your family’s air quality; instead, they were designed to protect the heating and cooling equipment from having larger contaminants enter the system and damage the parts. As a result, they aren’t successful at removing indoor air pollutants, but only cost around $1 each.
