I have never really had poor air quality in my home because I keep up with ductwork cleaning and air filter changes.
- I always use pretty good quality air filters with a good MERV rating.
The thing is, I started wondering about how good HEPA air filters are when I saw them advertised. I wondered how much better my air quality really would be. I thought about it for a little while before I finally decided to order a box of HEPA air filters for my HVAC system. When I started using the HEPA air filters, I couldn’t believe that the air quality actually did improve. I didn’t think it was possible, but the HEPA air filters actually pull 99.9% of contaminants from the air. The high quality pleated air filters are great, even for those who suffer from allergies, but they definitely are not better than HEPA air filters! After switching to HEPA air filters, I can say for sure that I will never go back. I was actually talking to some friends of mine about my recent switch to HEPA air filters, and they told me that there was something else I could do to improve my air quality that I was missing. I didn’t know what it could possibly be, so I wanted to know. That’s when they told me I could invest in a UV air purification system. I just about hit myself on the head for never thinking about that. I had heard about UV air purification systems and how they work to clean all the air that flows through the ductwork. They also kill harmful germs that are in the air. I think I’m going to have to make that investment.
