Air filtration is one of the most effective ways to reduce the impact of allergens and pollutants on those in your household who suffer from symptoms of allergies and asthma.

There are many different types of filtration. The most common is a pleated 1″ filter that is installed in your air handler to remove common particulates like dust, dander and pollen. Your air handler comes with one of these filters when it is installed, but often that filter is not sufficient to remove large volumes of contaminants, and it rarely traps anything smaller than dust or pollen.
For this reason there are many forms of filtration upgrades you can opt for. The most common upgrade you can make is to get a higher rated pleated filter. Such filters are rated on the MERV scale and most stock filters come in somewhere between 4–6. The MERV rating scale goes up to 16, however, so there are many options above and beyond a basic filter that you can install that will provide better protection against unwanted contaminants. Fantastic Filters, for example, are MERV 12 rated and can remove all contaminants as small as 1.8 microns, including things like mold spores, fungi and even many bacteria.
Another, higher rated form of filtration is a HEPA filter. Rated to remove 99.9% of all contaminants 0.3 microns or larger, HEPA filters are the most efficient and effective such products on the market. They sometimes require upgrades to your ventilation system to work properly, but for those with extreme allergies or asthma symptoms, they are a good option.
