HEPA Filtration For Better Indoor Air Quality

When it comes to indoor air quality in the Terre Haute area, HEPA filtration is tops at ridding your home of airborne contaminants. Systems equipped with HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters use the same technology used in laboratories and operating rooms to combat the proliferation of germs and particles — leaving the air in your home as close as possible to contaminant-free.

HEPA systems target a range of air pollutants very effectively. HEPA filters trap particles such as dander and dust mites along with bioaerosols — minute, airborne microorganisms such as mold and viruses. While other filters or air cleaners target one class or contaminants or another, HEPA filters trap up to 99.97 percent of both particles and bioaerosols.

Among the other ways HEPA filtration systems stand apart from other air-cleaning systems for your home:

  • HEPA filtration systems work silently and out of sight. Because HEPA filters are so tightly woven, HEPA filtration systems are installed in parallel with your existing heating and cooling system. They need their own, more-powerful fan to force air through the filter and then back into your ductwork to be delivered to your living spaces. What this means for homeowners: Unlike tabletop or standing air-cleaning systems, HEPA systems are neither seen nor heard.
  • HEPA filtration systems clean the air throughout your home. Unlike stand-alone air-cleaning models, designed to clean the air in one room or a limited space, whole-house HEPA systems filter the air distributed by your ductwork to every room in your home. And it keeps working, day and night, to improve your indoor air quality.
  • HEPAs do their work safely. Also unlike some air-cleaning systems, HEPA filters release no ozone. Ozone emissions can be harmful to some people.
  • HEPAs have met stringent standards. You might have seen “HEPA-like” filters on the market. True HEPA filters must pass industry tests to bear the label.
