As the weather starts to cool down, you may be thinking about turning on your furnace or air conditioner. But before you do, you may want to consider replacing your old air filter with a new HEPA filter. HEPA filters are designed to remove 99.97% of airborne particles, making them an excellent choice for those with allergies or asthma. In addition, HEPA filters can help to improve the air quality in your home and reduce your energy bills. If you have an electric heating or cooling system, a HEPA filter can also help to extend its lifespan by preventing dust and dirt from build-up. It also helps a lot keeping the unit clean if you suffer from allergies like I do. I’ve had nights where I couldn’t stop sneezing and I had to actually get out of bed to clean my filter in the middle of the night. It isn’t a fun job to start with and imagine doing it at 4am when you just went to bed three hours before. I will never go back to a normal filter again for my HVAC system after that night. With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that HEPA filters are becoming increasingly popular. So if it’s time for a new air filter, be sure to choose a HEPA filter for your home. You and your family will be glad you did and you will probably save a lot of money on tissues from not having to blow your nose all of the time. Just imagine the HEPA filter as a kleenex for your HVAC system.
