Just when you think you are done making home comfort decisions, another major question pops up: 

Which home air filter is best for my health? 

There are a variety of home air filters you can choose from. Allergy prevention is a main goal for many families to keep healthy. 

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Home Air Filters 

HEPA filters are considered the ultimate filtration product by Stevenson Service Experts, as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the EPA. HEPA filters can eliminate up to 98% of pollutants in your indoor air. These are the types of filters usually utilized in hospitals to destroy germs and keep everyone healthy, but Stevenson Service Experts offers them for home air filters. If there are any critical respirational health ailments for anyone in the home, the experts suggest the installation of a whole-home HEPA air filtration system.

These guys remove 85% of your home’s air pollutants.

Standard Pleated Media Home Air Filters 

These are your more common home air filters and can be found at the majority of home improvement stores. While pleated home air filters may have a lower cost, they also have to be changed more often – every four to twelve weeks versus once a year like the whole-home HEPA and high-efficiency air filters. Since HEPA home air filters range from $60 to $100, for annual cost you’re looking at nearly the same price. Standard pleated air filters can remove up to 45% of your home’s air pollutants and the most important factor is the number of pleats per foot. The higher count of pleats, the better the air flow, and the cleaner your famiy’s air will be.

Basic Fiberglass Home Air Filters 

The flat, fiberglass air filters are the most basic type of home air filter. These filters do not generally improve your home’s air quality; instead, they were intended to guard the heating and cooling equipment from having larger contaminants get into the system and harm the pieces. As a result, they remove less than 10% of pollutants in your indoor air, but they are available for about $1 each.
