Honeywell filters can make a difference in the quality of air in your home or office. There are a few filters that we will talk about in this article. We will start with the HEPA, or High Efficiency Particle Air filter, for great filtration of air.
HEPA filters have activated carbon to really be effective at catching both small and large particles in the air. You will notice the quality of the air if you have allergies or any breathing conditions which affect your lungs. And you will notice quite a bit less particles on furniture around the house if you filter your air house-wide.
HEPA filters take out dust, pollen and disease causing things like mold and asbestos particles and bacteria and viruses. This doesn’t mean that you won’t get a cold or other virus, as you can get these in other places than your filtered house. But it would reduce the spread of these in your house when your house has a HEPA filter. You still do have to treat whatever room has the mold in it, though. If a room, such as a bathroom has mold, to make HEPA most effective, you still have to treat that room anyhow. There is no going around this part.
Air filters are not the HEPA filters that you would use if you had wanted a HEPA filter. These are just a mesh like filter that you would pop into the HVAC of your home to catch bigger particles. These don’t filter out bacteria or viruses or mold like a HEPA filter would. These are also cheaper as it is usually a cardboard frame with a mesh like interior in this. It normally doesn’t have the activated carbon in this to filter out the small particles. You may get more dust on furniture if you just rely on these and not HEPA, which takes out the smaller particles.
Honeywell humidifier filters can be bought for either a point of use humidifier, which is a humidifier for one room, or a whole house humidifier. Generic filters won’t work as well, or last as long, especially for a Honeywell humidifier, whatever the humidifier use is for. The humidifiers can have filters to keep pathogens and other unwanted things out of the air in your house. Every one to three months, the humidifier filter needs to be changed. Or it can be cleaned if it is still usable. If it is gunged, throw it out and get a new filter, preferable a Honeywell humidifier filter.
