“What the Heck” are HEPA air cleaners?

If you have decided that you need an air purifier, or air cleaner, for your home due to allergies or just a desire to breathe cleaner, fresher air, this question may have popped into your mind.

The term HEPA is synonymous with this industry because units using this type of filter are considered the best air purifiers on the market.

HEPA air cleaners use technology developed by the US Atomic Energy Commission to protect servicemen from radioactive particles during the 1950s.

They are considered today to be one of the most effective and reliable ways to remove harmful particles from the atmosphere in your home.

The term HEPA stands for high-efficiency particulate arresting(arrestor).

A HEPA filter is claimed to capture up to 99.7% of the particles that attempt to pass through it. Its holes are only 0.3 microns in size and, therefore, can stop not only visible dust and pet hair, but unseen viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and other potentially damaging intruders in the air.

These filters can simultaneously process large amounts of air due to their very large size.

But you may be wondering why are some of the units that use HEPA filters not very big if this is the case.

That’s because, similar to a concertina; it is folded over multiple times to fit nicely within a small container. This makes an air purifier of this type convenient to place anywhere in your home without standing out too much.

Many doctors recommend HEPA air purifiers for their allergy-suffering patients because of their ability to eliminate pollen and pet hairs in the home, which can cause unbearable discomfort. You may not have to get rid of “Fluffy” after all!

If you seek one of these units to remove unwanted odors from the air, you will have to find a model that combines both technologies. This is due to the molecular structure of odor chemicals.

There are many air purifiers available that use Powerful HEPA filters to clean the air and have the additional function of removing unpleasant smells. You will need to do the proper research.

Even some vacuum cleaners use HEPA technology to provide better performance.

If you have an excessive amount of dust, allergens, or pet dander in your home, you may need to change the filter on your unit more often. Recommendations from the manufacturer are usually provided for doing this.

Efficiency ratings for these purifiers are generally displayed on the packaging to assure you of its high standards.

You will get the most value for your money and peace of mind from HEPA air cleaners.
