While it’s true that many home heating and cool systems come with a filter, these are included mainly to protect the equipment, not the people using it, and they do not effectively eliminate pollutants and contaminants. To truly keep the air in a home clean, a proper filtration or purification system is required. A HEPA filter is one of the more efficient air cleaning products available for improving indoor air quality.

The Problem with Air Pollution

As your home is a closed environment, the air inside of it can often be more polluted than the air outside. This pollution can cause negative effects for the people living there, including:

Respiratory conditions


Bodily irritations


It is even more of a risk for individuals with allergies, asthma, hay fever and other breathing difficulties. Air pollution can also be a problem for special treasures in your home such as extensive woodwork, antiques and artwork. A HEPA filter helps prevent these problems in an efficient manner and offers protection from the negative side effects of air pollution.

How A HEPA Filter Works

A HEPA filter works to help keep your home clean by utilizing a three-stage filtration process:


A pre-filter captures large particles such as dust

HEPA Filter

A HEPA filter is 99.97% efficient, containing 0.3 microns or larger

V.O.C Filter

A V.O.C filter removes gases and odours

As the system is set up to remove these different types of pollutants and contaminants, a HEPA filter is a highly efficient and effective method of improving air quality in your home.
