Indoor Air Quality Filter Best Indoor Air Filters

 

Primarily due to health reasons more and more people are using the indoor air quality filter. It is often overlooked that the air inside a building can have an impact on people who have serious respiratory disorders.

 Microbrial contaminants, chemicals and allergens can reduce the indoor air quality and even become the cause of more diseases and contamination.

 There are several types of indoor air quality filters. The High Efficiency Particulate Air Filters that are made from pleated papers can be found in most hospitals. This type of indoor air quality filter is considered by many as the best indoor air filter.

 Not only does hospitals benefit from these high quality filters, a version known as the minipleat HEPA-type filter has been created for residential use and this can be readily bought.

 

 With these high quality air filters, you save money because these last for several years.

 Another type of filtration is the furnace-type panel filters. Although this is effective when taking out most particulates on the down side, it can restrict air flow. This type of indoor air quality filter must be replaced every 2-3 months.

 On one hand, the electrostatically enhanced panel filters are better in terms of airflow resistance. These panel filters appear about an inch thick and can be charged by operating pre-charged electrets.

 The electrostatically enhanced panel is not so effective with pollutants that are less than 1 micron in seize but can filter out larger particles such as mold spores and pollens. This panel filter should be changed every 3 months.
