Benefits of Electrostatic Air Filters
Quite different from your regular disposable filters, electrostatic air filters have many qualities that may make them stand out to you, including:
Removing Allergens from the Air
The primary purpose of an air filter, an electrostatic air filter removes the most common allergens found in a home from the air, including pet dander, dust mites, and mold spores.
Increasing HVAC Efficiency
While you may be attracted to a HEPA filter for its ability to filter virtually all particles out of the air, only those with the most extreme of allergies truly need them. For everyone else, a filter with too high of a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), such as a disposable HEPA filter, can put unnecessary strain on your HVAC system by restricting air flow.
Our electrostatic filters have an average MERV rating of 8-11, which is more than efficient enough to trap most airborne particles.
Saving Money With a Permanent Air Filter
Electrostatic filters are permanent – one purchase and a monthly cleaning is all you need to keep your electrostatic filter operational for the lifetime of your home.
By increasing your HVAC efficiency and eliminating the need to purchase disposable filters on a quarterly basis, electrostatic filters pay for themselves fairly quickly.
How Do Electrostatic Air Filters Work
Charged Static Layers
Electrostatic filters have layers of material designed to produce alternating charges of static electricity. As air passes through the filter, pollen, dust, and other particles are attracted to the layer with the opposite charge, creating a magnetic reaction. Essentially, electrostatic air filters use static electricity to act as an airborne particle magnet.
Clean Your Electrostatic Filter
To maintain the efficiency of your electrostatic filter, you must clean the filter on a monthly basis. You might read about how washing an electrostatic filter can be difficult; thankfully, we have a much simpler solution: vacuums.
That’s right: if you simply vacuum the dust out of your filter once a month, you don’t have to worry about hand washing your electrostatic filter.
If you miss a month, you’ll want to flush the filter with water and use a rag to deal with any impacted dust particles.
