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 purchase a high-efficiency air conditioner? Which size and model of equipment is ideal for your home? Are smart 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 should I choose for my family’s health? 

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

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Home Air Filters 

HEPA filters are rated as the leading filtration product by Stevenson Service Experts, as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the EPA. HEPA filters can get rid of up to 98% of pollutants in your family’s air. These are the types of filters typically utilized in hospitals to remove germs and keep people 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 recommend the investment of a whole-home HEPA air filtration system.

High-Efficiency Home Air Filters 

These guys remove 85% of air pollutants in your home. Not only will high-efficiency home air filters assist with alleviating 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 standard home air filters and can be found at most home improvement stores. While pleated home air filters may cost less, they also have to be changed more often – every four to twelve weeks versus annually 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 eliminate up to 45% of the air pollutants in your home and the most important factor is the number of pleats per foot. The higher count of 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 plain type of filters. These filters do not usually better your indoor air quality; instead, they were intended to shelter the heating and cooling equipment from having larger contaminants enter the system and harm the components. As a result, they remove less than 10% of pollutants in your indoor air, but you can purchase them for about $1 each.
