For some, being indoors during allergy season is a safe haven. But, what do you do when your allergies are triggered by the dust and dirt in your own home? Or if your air conditioner isn’t filtering out the outdoor allergens? Using a HEPA filter is one of the most common types of filters that can prevent your allergies from flaring up, but do they really work?  This article will find out if HEPA filters are better than regular filters, and whether HEPA filters really work.  What is a HEPA Filter? A HEPA filter is a high-efficiency particulate air filter.  It is a mechanical air filter, and uses fine mesh to trap all the particles it encounters.  HEPA filters will trap pollens, dander, tobacco smoke, and dust mites.  They come with different types of vacuums, and can be used for other devices in the home. Does a HEPA Filter Really Work? HEPA filters have been shown to work effectively, especially for those that suffer from allergies.  Combining HEPA filters with effective ways to get rid of the source of the dust and pollens in your home can work effectively.  On their own, HEPA filters can provide clean air, but if the dust, pollens, and other allergens aren’t stopped at the source, they won’t do you much good.

That filter acts as the main line of defense against contamination for everyone living there. Many homeowners don’t fully understand the importance of this particular piece of their house. They might replace it once or twice a year and otherwise never think about it. If that sounds like you, then your family and the machinery that keeps your home comfortable could unfortunately be at serious risk. What are the risks of a neglected air filter? Disease, for one, since a clogged filter won’t be able to remove any more harmful bacteria and other contaminants from the air in the house. A clogged filter that gets wet for any reason can even foster the growth of mold—difficult to remove, and a household health disaster. Another risk is mechanical, because the restricted airflow causes the air conditioning unit to work harder to pull air through the vents. This can cause fan motors to burn out. Worse still is if the filter is damaged or missing; contaminants could then enter the system’s coils and clog them up. A dirty air filter is therefore one that continually runs up your energy bills, and may soon cause a need for costly servicing and repair work. What does pro
