What is HEPA?

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. These filters are designed to remove 99.97% of all airborne pollutants 0.3 microns or larger from the air that passes through the filter. HEPA has the capability of handling large areas of a house (1500 sq. ft) or the entire house, depending on total square footage.

HEPA Filters

HEPA filters are made from layers of fibrous sheets, which makes it act as a kind of sieve, trapping particles which can act as allergens or pathogens for your family and you in the air you breathe at home. HEPA filters were originally developed for industrial applications and have been gradually adapted for indoor air filtration systems for private residences. The technology has evolved rapidly over the past six decades since it was first developed, and finds applications in a variety of situations in which indoor air quality is a concern. HEPA filters are so reliable that they are used in the most sophisticated manufacturing processes, including in nuclear plants. The US Department of Energy sets stringent standards for HEPA filters that are used in sophisticated industrial settings, and your family and you deserve nothing short of these top standards in the interests of your continued good health.
