Air Filtration FAQs

What is a HEPA air filter?

HEPA is an acronym for high-efficiency particulate air. HEPA filters have a medium that filters very small particles out of the air. In other words, a HEPA air filter is one of the most effective options available for filtering your home’s air.

Does a HEPA filter kill COVID-19?

No, HEPA filters cannot kill a virus. However, it can help protect against the spread by trapping the particles that the virus moves through your home on. This can make it less likely that you will spread or catch COVID in your home. This means HEPA filtration can be part of your overall plan to protect your home and family from the coronavirus.

Is air filtration better than air purification?

Air filtration traps particles in the air. Air purification uses light or other methods to sanitize the air. Most indoor air quality plans will use both types of air cleaning to protect the home or property from unwanted contaminants. They work best as a multi-focused approach to cleaning the air.

What does efficiency mean with air filters?

An efficient air filter is one that traps very small particles. The more efficient the air filter, the smaller the particles it will trap. However, this can also mean that the air filter is harder to push air through. You need to strike a balance between excellent filtration and the energy efficiency of your system as a whole. Your HVAC technician can help you choose the right filter option.

How often should I change my HVAC filter?

Plan to change your HVAC filter once every four to six weeks. This will ensure that it is not hurting the efficiency of your HVAC system if it is full of debris. A dirty air filter will increase airflow resistance, and this can hurt your system’s overall efficiency.
