What is HEPA really good for?

Got Allergies? Hepa filters, in general, are the best for removing large particles. Hence they are considered the best filters for pollen, dust and hair. Doctors (allergists, respiratory M.D.’s, etc.) recommend HEPA first and foremost for allergies and asthma. HEPA filters are cloth-like fibers that catch these particles and retain them. HEPA can also remove radioactive particles, which they were originally developed for. If allergies and/or asthma are your problem then the best HEPA Air Purifier for you starts with HEPA.

What are the Pros and Cons of HEPA Filters?

While HEPA filters (and HEPA Air Purifiers) are best for pollen, dust, and hair they have little or no effect on smoke, odor, or fumes of any kind. In fact smokers should look for other alternatives as the HEPA filter will often act like a cigarette filter, hanging on to the cigarette smoke  and odor. In this case HEPA will need to be changed more often. The pros & Cons in the video below give both sides:

What are the mistakes most people make when it comes to purchasing a HEPA air purifier?

The biggest mistake people make is a financial mistake. That’s because HEPA filters, while they generally all do the same thing (and work effectively) are one of the most overpriced items in the appliance category. Here’s why: Many companies recognize that after you have purchased a HEPA air purifier you’re basically tied to them for the filter replacements.  HEPA filters do not cost much to manufacture. the same is true for automobile filters and ink-jet cartridges on printers. In all cases (Car, Printers, Purifiers) the manufacturer actually sells the original units for less money because they know they’ll make more on the back end.
