Let myself and others tell you why it is crucial to consistently change out your HEPA filters.
- As you might imagine, your heating and A/C filters are going to wear down with time.
The best way to avoid them from wearing down and working less effectively is to routinely changed them. Most people do this with a disposable air filter but what about a HEPA filter? While HEPA filters may be particularally designed to catch the smallest pieces of bacteria and air particles and keep your indoor air quality clean. However, appreciate with anything these filters do in time get dirty. As they get dirty and they start to wear down over the years they are going to perform less and less. When they wear away they would eventually start allowing more dirt and bacteria into your home. That is absolutely not something you want! So it is advisable to change out your HEPA filters too. I had to learn this lesson the tough way after I went a long phase of time separate from decreasing our air filters at all. I was confused for a while because our indoor air quality had to be so good, for a while it was an excellent condition but I observed that it’s tough to gradually declined until I realized that I was sneezing again. I had consistently had a complication with pollen irritations until I got the HEPA filter. When I took out the filter to be checked I actually saw how dirty and worn it was from not being changed. Now I change our filters consistently and I have not had any issues since.
