Everything You MUST Know about HEPA Filters

Miele HEPA FilterOne of the best things you can do to help keep allergies at bay is to use vacuum cleaners and air purifiers with HEPA filtration. But different manufacturers use different terminology to say, essentially the same thing, so comparing one product to another isn’t always as straightforward as it should be.

There’s the HEPA filter, and then there are variations on the HEPA filter, as well as ULPA and HEGA filters and a few things in between. There’s a lot of information available about the underlying technologies and how they relate to vacuum cleaners and air purifiers, including articles in our own library, but there are only a few things you absolutely must know about filters before you start shopping: Continue reading Everything You MUST Know about HEPA Filters

Filtration: “Down to” vs. “As small as”

Best Vacuum

When you see a vacuum cleaner or air purifier with a HEPA designation, that should mean that it has a HEPA filter that removes 99.97%  of all particles as small as 0.3 microns in size from the air that passes through it.

But sometimes you’ll see machines with HEPA filtration that filters particles down to 0.3 microns.

There is a difference between the two, and it’s an important one.

“Down to” means that if all the particles being filtered were 0.3 microns – and no larger – the filter will trap 99.97% of them.

“As small as” means that 99.97% of all the particles going through the filter will be trapped, whether they are 0.3 inches or 0.3 microns in size.  But that also means that some of the particles as small as 0.3 microns, as well as some of the larger ones, will get through the filter to air you breathe.

Something to keep in mind when you compare air purifiers.

The Venta Airwasher LW14 is the ideal size for humidifying small spaces like dorm rooms.

It’s back-to-school time, and we’ve been getting questions about humidifiers for dorm rooms, and our answer most often is the Venta Airwasher. It won’t be right for everyone, of course, but it’s combination of excellent performance and easy maintenance makes it pretty much the humidifier of choice for the student.

Easy maintenance is the most important point for students and dorms. The Venta Airwasher uses a water treatment solution to prevent lime scale buildup and odors. Just add a capful when you add more water. There are no filters, sticks or bulbs to clean or replace. All you need to do is wipe the unit out with a damp sponge every couple of weeks.
