Should you get HEPA Filters in your Home

Solve Your Air Quality Issues with HEPA Filters

Outdoor pollutants and allergens can certainly wreak havoc on your health. Did you know that the air inside your home can be just as bad, or worse? As odd as it might sound, it’s true. Allergens and also pollutants will diminish your indoor air quality (IAQ) and can have a negative impact on your health. These pollutants include smoke, mold spores, pollen, cleaning solutions, and also 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 a quality air filter can help mitigate indoor allergy issues and also improve your home’s IAQ. Here at Mills Heating and Air, we recommend you purchase HEPA filters to clean your home’s air. These high-quality filters use a number of filtering mechanisms and can also capture both large and microscopic particles.

What to Know About HEPA Filters and HVAC Systems

  • Purchase the Proper Size. While you’re shopping for a HEPA filter, it’s important to make sure it’s the right size for your HVAC system. If it doesn’t fit well, unfiltered air will enter your home.
  • Purchase a Quality Filter. 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. Call your friends at Mills Heating and Air. We can provide some suggestions and help you avoid purchasing a low-quality filter.
  • Have Your HVAC Inspected. 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 us. We can assess your ducts and air filter slot and ensure they are tightly sealed.
