Choose the Air Filter That’s Right for Your Home 

There are so many things to consider when it comes to perfect home comfort. Should you purchase a high-efficiency AC system? Which size and make of equipment is ideal for your home? Are wifi thermostats really worth the money? The list goes on and on. 

Just when you think all the decisions have been made, another important question pops up: 

Which home air filter will be best for my family’s health? 

There are a variety of home air filters available for your home. Allergy prevention is a main goal for many families to stay healthy. 

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Home Air Filters 

HEPA filters are rated as the ultimate filtration product by Mid-State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing, as well as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the EPA. HEPA filters can destroy up to 98% of pollutants in your home’s air. These are the types of filters commonly installed in hospitals to destroy germs and keep patients and staff healthy, but Mid-State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing installs them for home air filters. If there are any critical respirational health ailments for anyone in the home, the experts suggest the investment of a whole-home HEPA air filtration system.

High-Efficiency Home Air Filters 

These guys remove 85% of your home’s air pollutants. Not only will high-efficiency home air filters assist with relieving allergy symptoms, they also help your heating and cooling equipment run more efficiently, ultimately lowering energy costs which could save you money on heating and cooling bills year after year.

Standard Pleated Media Home Air Filters 

These are your more familiar home air filters and can be found at the majority of big box stores. While pleated home air filters may have a lower cost, they also have to be switched out more often – every one to three months versus once a year like the whole-home HEPA and high-efficiency air filters. Since HEPA home air filters cost anywhere from $60-$100, for annual cost you’re looking at nearly the same price. Standard pleated air filters can eliminate up to 45% of pollutants in your home’s air and the biggest factor is the number of pleats per foot. The higher count of pleats, the better the air flow, and the cleaner your famiy’s air will be.

Basic Fiberglass Home Air Filters 

The flat, fiberglass air filters are the most simple home air filter type. These filters do not generally enhance your family’s air quality; instead, they were intended to protect the heating and cooling equipment from having larger contaminants get into the system and ruin the parts. As a result, they aren’t successful at removing indoor air pollutants, but only cost around $1 each.
