Should you get HEPA Filters in your Home

HEPA Filters – Your Solution to Air Quality Issues

We all know just how bad outdoor pollutants and allergens can be for our health. Did you also know that the air inside your home can be just as bad, or even worse? It’s true! Allergens and also pollutants can dramatically diminish your indoor air quality (IAQ) and can negatively impact your health. Pollutants like smoke, mold spores, pollen, cleaning solutions, and also animal dander are among the worst. The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) even lists indoor air pollution in their Top-5 environment-related health risks. Installing an air filter can help alleviate indoor allergy issues and also improve your home’s overall IAQ. Your friends at Maxwell Heating & Cooling recommend you purchase a HEPA filter to clean your home’s air. These high-quality filters use a variety of filtering mechanisms to catch both large and also microscopic particles.

HEPA Filters and Your Home’s HVAC System

  • Purchase the Right Size. It’s vitally important that you purchase the right size filter for your HVAC system. If it doesn’t fit well, unfiltered air will enter your home.
  • Purchase a Good Quality Filter. All HEPA air filters have 3 primary components that must be balanced to function properly. Poorly balanced filters won’t be able to properly capture particulates. These contaminants will enter your home. Maxwell Heating & Cooling can provide some suggestions and help you avoid purchasing a low-quality filter.
  • Have Us Inspect Your HVAC. Unfiltered air can enter your home through leaky ducts or a poorly sealed filter slot. When you’re ready to tackle your home’s IAQ, contact us. We can examine your air filter slot and ducts and ensure they are aren’t letting unfiltered air in.
