How HEPA Air Filters Protect you from Pathogens and Bacteria

Standard air filters for central air conditioners may fail to capture particles. However, a HEPA filter may offer more protection, which is why at Air Pros, we recommend scheduling AC repairs and retrofits that can help improve your indoor air quality.

Understanding HEPA Filters

When you think of HEPA air filters, you probably think of vacuums and air purifiers that use the technology to remove extremely fine particles from your indoor air in an effort to improve air quality. High-Efficiency Particulate Air Filters or HEPA filters are pleated filters that are made from a single sheet of specialty paper and are electrically charged. The pleated design combined with the static charge captures more particles than a standard flat filter. This is why they are often used in vacuums and various types of air purifiers.

HEPA filters have the ability to remove particles as small as .3 microns. HEPA filters are only 99.97% efficient at collecting the most-penetrating particle. While it may catch some viruses, it cannot stop them all.

HEPA Filter Retrofits for Residential HVAC Systems

Here at Air Pros, we can retrofit your air conditioner with a HEPA air filtration system. Most residential HVAC systems are not designed to accept HEPA filters. However, we can perform retrofits and even add a separate HEPA system to help remove particulate matter and pathogens. In addition to a HEPA air filter, you may want to consider adding one of our UV air purifiers to your residential system to help neutralize bacteria and viruses.

For more information on HEPA air filters and UV air purifiers and how these products may be able to increase your indoor air quality and for AC repairs prior to the start of summer, give us a call at 877-561-9730.
