Your Indoor Air Is More Polluted Than You Think.

Air pollution doesn’t just come about in the form of car exhaust or factory smoke. Believe it or not, most of the air you breathe every single day is polluted in one way or another. Dust mites, pollen, pet dander and mold are all things that can be found in the air that can cause serious health problems.

How Do HEPA Filters Work?

These are types of mechanical air filters that force air through fine mesh. The mesh acts by trapping the harmful particles we mentioned above, so you don’t breathe them in.

Why HEPA Filters Are Worth It:

Any air that passes through your home’s HVAC system will pass through the HEPA filter, if you have them installed. With that said, most of the air you breathe passes through your home’s HVAC system which means it’s being cleaned as it passes through. The result? You’ll breathe in fresher, cleaner air that will help alleviate some of your worst allergy symptoms.
