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

There’s so much to consider when it comes to perfect home comfort. Should you invest in a high-efficiency AC system? Which size and make of equipment is best for your home? Are programmable thermostats truly worth the money? The list goes on and on. 

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

Which home air filter is best for my health? 

There are a variety of home air filters from which you can choose. Allergy prevention is a big objective for many families to stay healthy. 

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Home Air Filters 

HEPA filters are considered the leading filtration product by Stevenson Service Experts, as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the EPA. HEPA filters can kill up to 98% of pollutants in your indoor air. These are the types of filters usually installed in hospitals to destroy germs and keep everyone healthy, but Stevenson Service Experts provides them for home air filters. If there are any critical respirational health problems for anyone in the home, the experts suggest the investment of a whole-home HEPA air filtration system.

High-Efficiency Home Air Filters 

These filters remove 85% of air pollutants in your home. Not only will high-efficiency home air filters help with reducing allergy symptoms, they also help your heating and air conditioning systems work 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 familiar home air filters and can be found at the majority of department stores. While pleated home air filters may have a lower cost, they also have to be replaced more often – every one to three months 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 six with one, half a dozen with the other. Standard pleated air filters can remove up to 45% of pollutants in your home’s air and the largest factor is the number of pleats per foot. The higher number of 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 plain home air filter type. These filters do not generally enhance your family’s air quality; instead, they were intended to shelter the HVAC equipment from having larger contaminants get into the system and damage the components. As a result, they aren’t successful at removing indoor air pollutants, but they are available for about $1 each.
