High-Efficiency Air Filters for Your Home
If you’re looking for the best air filters on the market, you can’t go wrong with a HEPA standard filter. HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air, and in order for a filter to meet HEPA standards, they need to remove at least 99.95% of particulates in the air. HEPA filters are usually a fiber mat, typically composed of fiberglass. Key factors affecting its functions are fiber diameter, filter thickness, and face velocity. HEPA filters are designed to target small pollutants and particles, which can exacerbate problems like allergies, asthma, and breathing issues.
Proper filtration is key to improving your indoor air quality, and the experts at Southport Heating can install a high-quality HEPA filter in your home for the lowest possible price.

Sources of Poor Indoor Air Quality
- Airborne particles, like dust or pollen. This is the most common source of poor indoor air quality, and can unfortunately cause a lot of problems for people prone to allergies or asthma. HEPA filters get rid of over 99% of particulates in the air, allowing you to breathe easier and live healthier.
- Biological contaminants, like mold spores and bacteria. Homes in humid areas are prone to mold and bacteria growth, leading to poor air quality and even health concerns. Getting a HEPA filter installed in your home can eliminate the risk of getting sick through mold spores in the air.
- Gases and odors, such as CO and radon. Bad smells in your home can indicate many different problems, poor air quality being one of them. Getting a new HEPA filter can eliminate bad gases and odors commonly found in the home.
