What is a HEPA Air Purifier and Should I Invest in One?

the rise of the pandemic and talk of the “new normal” so prevalent in today’s society, one product on everyone’s wish list is a high-quality air purifier that removes dirt, bacteria, and viruses from the air. As well as being a great way of allowing fresher, cleaner air into a property, air purifiers have been hailed for helping stop the spread of viruses, leading to healthier and more hygienic spaces. 

With this in mind, a buzzword of sorts surrounding this has been the “HEPA” model of air purifier. Said to be the most effective at cleaning the air and removing toxins, what exactly is it? Here, the RTS Heating & Cooling team will explain.


HEPA Filters

Simply put, a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter is a specialist filter designed to remove even the smallest particles of dust, pollen, bacteria, viruses, and mould from the air. Using a pleated mechanical design, a HEPA air purifier draws air in, removes particles, and emits cleaner, safer, and more hygienic air back out. Similar to most other appliances, the efficiency and quality of HEPA air filters and HEPA air purifiers vary, but doing your research and investing in one that suits your individual needs is a great way to find one that suits you.


Daikin Air Purifiers

Perhaps we’re biased, but Daikin’s air purifiers are some of the most effective HEPA filtration systems out there. As well as the obvious benefit of filtering, purifying, and cleaning air, Daikin air purifiers are suitable for use in all types of properties and work quietly for minimal disruption to your day. While many low-budget air purifiers require regular cleaning, maintenance, and filter replacements, the Daikin MC55VB HEPA Air Purifier is virtually maintenance-free. Installed with a HEPA filter that lasts over 10 years, this air purifier is virtually unmatched in terms of performance, value for money, and reliability.

Is it Worth The Investment?

While no two people’s needs are the same, the answer is yes, judging by the majority of our previous customers. While there are other ways of purifying the air in your home, such as opening windows, buying air purifying plants, or using essential oils, these methods simply do not compare to the benefits offered by a high-quality filtration system.
