How does a HEPA filter work, and what is HEPA filtration?

How do HEPA* filters work? Our specially designed HEPA* filtration system removes 99.995% of harmful bacteria, viruses and other micro-organisms from the air, reducing the risk of COVID-19 circulating in your building. Cleverly engineered to capture even the tiniest of particles, the HEPA* filter is constructed from layers of fine fibers and binders. Harmful material sticks in this mesh and is taken out of circulation, leaving just clean, healthy air to go back into your room.

Concerned about the air filter change cost?

The air filter replacement cost is still a cheaper option than buying a standalone H13 HEPA* filter air purifier as you are simply adapting rather than replacing your HVAC system. And once you have replaced the air purifier filters there are no additional expenses after you’ve paid the HVAC filter replacement cost. So you can have peace of mind, with the minimal financial investment of the air filter change cost.

Why HEPA filters?

If you are wondering why HEPA* filters – particularly the H13 filter – are so important, the answer comes from the German federal organization for occupational safety and health (the Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin). They recommend HEPA* filters as the ideal air solutions for your heating and cooling system in recirculation mode.

How often should an HVAC filter be changed?

How do you know when to change a HEPA* filter air purifier? You’ve got your new anti-viral HVAC filter, how often should you change it? 

  • There is no single, definitive answer to this question as it will depend on the space and how long the HVAC is used each day. The HVAC filter location will primarily affect how often it needs changing
  • As a general guide for HEPA* filter replacement, frequently used industrial HEPA filters in high dirt areas need to be checked every 90 days
  •  In less high use areas HEPA* filters must be replaced every 9-12 months.
  •  The best solution is to look at the filter itself. If it’s dirty, full of dust and you can’t see the actual filter clearly then it’s time for an HVAC filter change
  • Take advice from the manufacturer about specific HVAC filter replacement frequency. Some may offer a HVAC filter replacement service
  • If you’re doing your own upkeep, build this into your usual HVAC maintenance schedule to ensure you get optimum performance and virus-free air
  • If you’re considering replacing your HVAC system think first about whether a simple air filter upgrade to an H13 HEPA* filter would work instead

Do HEPA filters work?

Does a HEPA* air purifier work? Yes!

  • In Germany, the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommends the use of HEPA* filters in recirculation mode to reduce the risk of transmission of infections 
  • Research shows that a conventional HVAC system removes 90% of ~1 μm particles, while an optimized HEPA* system removes 99.995% of viruses, bacteria and microorganisms
  • If you replace the air filter with an H13 filter it’s worth not just considering the HEPA* filter cost – you’re actually investing in clean, healthy air for your colleagues and customers.
