Written by: Your Filter Connection   For most people, air quality seems unimportant. For men and women with allergies, including dust and pollen, pollutants can wreak havoc. Thanks to a quality residential air filter, pollutants that cause itchy eyes, sneezing and a running nose can come to a halt. So if you’re concerned about your home’s air quality, here are some common Qs and As.   What Do Filters Remove? Filters cannot stop every type of pollutant from entering your home. They can, however, stop most, including mold spores, pet dander, skin cells and even dust mites. Each of these pollutants can ruin your home’s air quality and irritate your allergies, and different types of air conditioner filters can stop these participles from entering your home.   How Often Should I Change My Filter? Well, that depends on the type of filter your purchased. Washable filters can be re-used and washed without needing to be replaced every 3 months. Fiberglass and electrostatic filters, like an everyday 3m filtrete air filter, need replacing often. It’s recommended that you change your filter before peak seasons, like during winter or summer.   I have a Mold Allergy. Can a Filter Stop These Irritants? Filters can stop mold spores from growing in your home, but let’s be clear, filters cannot stop everything. Your home will fall victim to mold growth despite an air filter. Thanks to a water leak or damaged drywall, homes can still become riddled with mold.
