5 Facts You Need to Know About Air Filters for Allergies

Michael C. Rosone | January 4, 2018

Filter Fact:Allergies and asthma are both common issues, causing most people to even stay indoors during certain times of the year. However, did you know that your air filter in your home could be causing just as many allergic reactions as the high pollen trees outside? Every time you open your front door, this pollen or bacteria is inviting itself in. Sure, ordinary paper filters catch large particles like dust, but bacteria, pollen, and mold particles are much smaller, and easily slip through the fibers in the filters. This means that these common allergens are being circulated throughout your home, causing just as many problems as being outside under a pollen tree for three hours straight. However, high energy particle air filters, or HEPA filters, were created specifically for people that suffer from allergies. Rated from MERV 1 and on up, these have the ability to catch smaller particles and keep them from circulating around your home. Higher rated MERV filters, such as MERV 13, can trap up to 99 percent of pollen and bacteria. This also prevents the spread of airborne illness such as the flu and the common cold! If you have any questions, or are having trouble finding the right MERV rating for you, jump on over to our customer service page, and let us do all the work!This post is a summary of the article below.
