When a friend of mine was trying to tell me that I needed to use HEPA filters, I had to ask him what was so special about them.
I thought my pleated air filters were just fine and the air quality in my home was never terrible.
I even had my ductwork system cleaned on a regular basis. My friend told me that HEPA filters are much different. He explained that they work to pull 99.9% of contaminants from the air and I had to think about all the invisible stuff that I couldn’t see in my air. He was starting to make me feel uncomfortable, but he told me it was good I was starting to realize there were still contaminants in my air. I could be breathing in anything from mold spores, to dangerous pathogens. He said if I really wanted to go big with my air quality, I should invest in a UV air purification system. He said not only do those use HEPA air filters to pull all the contaminants out of the air, but they also work regularly to eliminate viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and other contaminants. I finally decided to just try out a UV air purification system, but I would go right back to not using one if I didn’t like it. Honestly, the day after I had my UV air purification system installed, the air quality was the best I’ve experienced in my place. I suppose I’ve had better air quality in some restaurants and other venues, but this UV air purification system works beautifully. There’s no way I could go back to not having air purification in my home.
