You have a lot of choices when it comes to replacement home air filters. Along with choosing from a variety of manufacturers, you also have to decide which type of filter is right for you. One popular option is to choose a high-efficiency electrostatic filter, which provides a very high level of filtration while also being within the budget of most homeowners. An electrostatic air conditioner filter uses static electricity to “trap” small particles in the air. The fibers of the air filters are made with a blend of synthetic materials that become charged when air vents through the system. Different layers of the filter have positive or negative charges. As small particles of dust, mold or other contaminants come through the system, they become first positively charged and then attracted to the negatively-charged filter. This provides a high level of filtering, as most electrostatic filters have a MERV rating from 8 to 10. Because it is so efficient, an electrostatic residential air filter is a great choice for people with certain medical conditions. If you have allergies or asthma, an electrostatic filter can help to provide you with the clean air you need to breathe freely. People with compromised immune systems can also benefit from highly-filtered air, and it’s also an outstanding choice for homes with smokers or pets. Electrostatic air filters are available in both disposable and permanent types. You might be surprised to learn that the disposable filters actually offer a higher level of filtration. However, permanent electrostatic air filters can save you money in the long run as they can be used for years if you perform occasional cleaning.
