The Benefits of Electrostatic Air Filters

August 17, 2020

Electrostatic air filters are designed to make use of static electricity to draw dust and other particles out of the air in your home. The filter has a negative charge throughout its surface area; this negative static charge is increased and enhanced by air passing through the filter. Unwanted particles like dust, mold and pollen are positively charged and are attracted to the negatively charged electrostatic filter. With these problem particulates captured, the air in your home is cleaner, safer and easier to breathe.

Electrostatic Air Filters Save Money, Allergies, Maintenance

Using one of these filtration systems in your home will protect your air conditioning and heating components from dust and other particles that can gather on the equipment and cause problems. Dirt is the foremost cause of cooling and heating system failures. An electrostatic air filter in your home can save you money both by increasing the efficiency of your HVAC system and by helping to prevent costly breakdowns.

With regard to allergies, these systems are among the most effective at removing animal dander, pollen, dust and mold spores from the air. Pulling these irritants out of the air you breathe can help reduce the prevalence and symptoms of asthma, respiratory problems and allergies. Maintenance, too, is cheaper and easier with an electrostatic filter, as these merely call for periodic cleaning. Standard filters must be thrown away and replaced.

Electrostatic Is Better for Housekeeping and the Environment

Because an electrostatic air filter removes dust from the air as it’s pulled into the air conditioner or heating unit, you can look forward to less required household dusting. Additionally, since electrostatic filters rarely or never need replacement, you’ll be saving landfill space for all the standard filters you’d have to throw out over the years.
