As expected, HEPA air filters were more fancy than the thin air filters I was used to purchasing, however both of us knew they would make a difference in my husband’s allergies
Before I got married, I was able to update my air filter 2 to multiple times per year. An Heating and A/C professional would detach the dirty air filters during my Heating and A/C tune ups, and I’d occasionally update an air filter on my own in between appointments. It wasn’t until I got married that I had to update it more often. My husband dealt with some pretty drastic allergies, so the air in our beach apartment had to be pristine. I had always purchased cheap, thin, air filters because I was pleased with the amount of dirt and pollen they trapped. My husband on the other hand would suffer from allergy attacks frequently due to the extra dust getting through the air filter. This is when both of us decided to update our air filters to something more durable and thick. After doing some research, both of us discovered HEPA certified air filters, which were known for trapping airborne illnesses and stopping everything that tried to pass through. HEPA air filters were used in hospitals all around the country, because they were the best at keeping a space disinfect and free of air irritations. As expected, HEPA air filters were more fancy than the thin air filters I was used to purchasing, however both of us knew they would make a difference in my husband’s allergies. We’ve been using the HEPA air filters for a month now, and both of us can already see a difference. There’s no more particles floating around in the air and my husband’s allergies rarely flare up.
