The Importance of Air Filters

Air filters help us keep our houses warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Air filters can remove dust, lint, pet hair and dander, and other particles down to the smallest microparticle that can harm circuitry and microchips in sensitive equipment. The right air filters keep our worlds clean, comfortable, and functioning efficiently.

Yet you probably give little thought to the air filters in your home, office, business, schools or local shopping mall. Here are a few reasons why air filters are of great importance in all aspects of our lives.

Air filters…

  • Protect the health of a building’s occupants: Hospitals, schools, and other large institutions depend on air filters to reduce the spread of viruses and other airborne particles that can make people sick. Air filters also reduce allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and pet dander from circulating.
  • Reduce cleaning efforts: Because air filters clean dust from the air, they can reduce the amount of dust circulating throughout a building. This prevents dust from accumulating on hard surfaces and reduces the need for cleaning and vacuuming.
  • Reduce risk of fires: Grease filters and filters in exhaust fans in home and commercial kitchens reduce the risk of fire. Air filters in HVAC systems remove lint and dust from the air, reducing buildup inside ductwork that can catch fire.
  • Improve energy efficiency:

As you can see, the humble air filter does a great deal to make our lives better. The right air filter for the right job can help protect the health and wellness of people, the value of property, and the energy bills of a building’s owners. It’s amazing what an air filter can do!
