4 types of Air Filters
1.) HEPA Filters
HEPA filters, or high-efficiency particulate air filters, have a specially designed filtration technology that is able to trap up to 99.97% of all particulates in the air in your home. Commonly used in hospitals and laboratories and other medical facilities, HEPA filters are not intended to be used on a lot of residential HVAC equipment, so be sure to check with your technician before trying to use one on your system. Also, keep in mind that like any other filter, HEPA filters need to be replaced regularly.
2.) Pre Filters
A pre-filter goes before a system’s main air filter. Pre-filters capture large particulates that would normally clog the primary filter a lot easier. They are great for keeping the main filter-free and more able to efficiently trap smaller, more harmful microscopic allergens. This provides much longer-lasting filtration and improved filter performance. For the best air filtration results, pre-filters are always recommended.
3.) Carbon Filters
Carbon filters are designed specifically to remove odors. Odors are often tiny gas particles that cannot be captured by normal air filters, or even highly efficient filters like electrostatic and HEPA filters. The carbon in carbon filters is treated with oxygen in a process that opens up millions of extremely tiny, highly absorbent pores that capture certain particles. However, carbon filters don’t merely trap only odors. Carbon filters remove smoke, gases, vapors, and even certain chemicals. They are perfect for people who have a problem with unpleasant odors.
4.) Pleated Electrostatic Filters
An advanced air filter like an electrostatic filter is made with charged material that acts like a magnet to attract oppositely charged air particles. This magnetic effect enables the filter to seize far more particles than the average filter, including microscopic pollutants like allergens, bacteria, and smoke. Pleated filters have a larger dust-holding capacity, which allows them to capture and hold more pollutants. This makes the filter longer-lasting and far more efficient. Electrostatic filters will still need to be changed regularly because the more pollutants they trap, the less of a charge they carry.
