Keep Your Home Healthy with HEPA

Tips on keeping your home’s indoor air as healthy as it can be

Though it feels as if we are close to defeating COVID-19, until we reach herd immunity in our country, there is a risk. Tracing programs show that up to 70 percent of cases are spread between family members and close friends in what is now known as “living room spread.” Therefore, it is still important to make your home as healthy as possible.

Thankfully, there are measures you can take. Anthony Fauci, MD, has recently recommended high-efficiency particulate air systems—also known as HEPA filters—to remove COVID particles from the air in your home.

Because Coronavirus particles linger in the air, HEPA filters are particularly effective, since according to U.S. standards, they must effectively capture 99.97 percent of particles. HEPA filters can capture particles the size of COVID aerosols, according to Wirecutter. “The virus that causes COVID-19 is approximately 0.125 micron (125 nanometers) in diameter. It falls squarely within the particle-size range that HEPA filters capture with extraordinary efficiency: 0.01 micron (10 nanometers) and above,” the publication explains.

Benefits Of HEPA Air Purifier
HEPA is a form of technology which means High-Efficiency Particulate Air, and is often found in air purifiers. There are many air purifier brands on the market, but they are not all HEPA air purifiers, which provide the highest level of protection against viruses such as the one that causes COVID-19. Filter Shipping carries an excellent line of HEPA air purifiers for the home, such as Goodman and Lennox Healthy Climate. HEPA air purifiers work by passing air through the filter, capturing harmful components such as pollen, mold, mite, smoke particles, dust, dirt, and viruses. By removing the impurities from the air, the HEPA air purifier continuously circulates a fresh and breathable air all day long, keeping the air in your home not only clean, but healthy.

Until the threat of COVID has been eradicated, you owe it to your family to keep your home as healthy as possible. Whether you need a full HEPA air purifier system, or replacement HEPA filters, Filter Shipping has what you need. Go to, or call us at 815-658-9300.
