HEPA Filters Can Help Keep You Pleasant and Healthy

Springtime is here, and that means troublesome, airborne irritants and flecks are hanging in the air (among other locations). But the health of the air you’re inhaling in your Buffalo house doesn’t need to be that way. If you take adequate steps to prepare your space and HVAC system, you can lower the chance of allergies and illnesses happening, and you may even lessen proximity to other airborne particles and dust, which will help you be healthier and happier. It all comes down to a worthy HEPA filter.

 

It May Be Able to Help Prevent Ailments

Can your HEPA air filter help stop you from catching a sickness? It depends. HEPA filters cannot protect you from a virus. There is also no way to guarantee that any HEPA air filter will hinder other illnesses, such as the flu, cold, or allergies. But a quality HEPA filter can enhance your odds of staying healthy, when used with common sense best practices.

Based on Center for Disease Control and Prevention studies, industrial-grade air filters are offering positive information when it comes to hindering the spread of particles that hover in the air. However, these systems are much more costly than normal home filters. HEPA filters for family homes also continue to get better. There are many tests that have indicated the success of HEPA filters extracting mold spores, asbestos, odors, smoke and bacteria from your indoor air. Yet, several airborne ailments or viruses are too tiny for a HEPA filter to stop them from floating in the air of an average home.

HEPA filters can bring down the chance of picking up an array of illnesses related to repeated exposure to tiny particles kicked up from construction and other home cleaning activities. For example, if you’re redoing areas of your space, have a hobby that tends to move a bit of dirt or chemicals, or if your home is near certain businesses, setting up a HEPA filter could stop them from fluttering through your home, thus helping to clean up the air quality.

Don’t forget, while a HEPA filter could potentially cut down the chance of developing prevalent airborne illnesses, it is no alternative for good hygiene and the guidance of medical professionals! Keep this information in the forefront as you care for your space and family.
