Air Conditioning and Heating Filters

Posted By on March 4, 2022

Your units indoor quality is a pivotal element of the overall ambiance of your premises. Proper HVAC air filters can make a crucial difference between clean air and stuffy, pollutant-filled and disease-laden air. Here are some of the best air filters that can come in handy for your unit if you are looking to upgrade your system this year. 

  1. HEPA Filters

HEPA, also known as, High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters are often recommended by the American Department of Health thanks to their ability to extract at least 99% of all pollutants and airborne allergens in your premises’ air. This includes even the hard-to-remove dust particles and mold spores that can at times be as small as 0.3 microns. It is no wonder, therefore, that all other factors held constant, HEPA filters are ranked as some of the best air filters that one can get. 

  • UV Filters 

UV or ultraviolet filters, just like name implies, make use of short-wave UV light to kill viruses and bacteria. In other words, when air passes through your HVAC unit, the UV lamps disinfect it via germicidal radiation. And this explains why these UV filters are excellent for obliterating microorganisms that could otherwise be hazardous to your respiratory health e.g mold spores. 

  • Electrostatic Filters 

Using a combination of paper fibers and small cotton, electrostatic filters work by creating an attraction field that pulls airborne particles and dust from the air. This electrostatic field of attraction is usually strong enough to prevent these trapped pollutants from recirculating throughout your office. Actually, this is what makes them one of the best air filters for deploying against allergens that could be in your premises. 

  • Washable Filters 

Contrary to other filters which are typically either disposable or reusable, washable filters are an excellent environmentally-friendly way of saving money and keeping your unite’s operating costs down. And as much as the first buying price of such an air filter can be exceptionally high, it is often a worthy investment when you put into consideration that it can serve you continuously for several months if not years.
