HEPA Filters Recommended By The CDC
Explore options to improve indoor air quality in all shared spaces.

- Consider the addition of portable solutions (e.g., portable HEPA filtration units) to augment air quality in areas when permanent air-handling systems are not a feasible option.

HVAC Systems and Indoor Air Quality
The dark, damp confines of HVAC duct-work and components such as the evaporator coil and drain pan can provide perfect breading grounds for mold, mildew and bacteria growth when they become contaminated with dirt particles that pass through the furnace filter. Whenever the HVAC fan runs harmful fungal spores can then spew into the living space of a home.

Think about the long list of important terms, buzzwords, and acronyms in your life that you haven’t quite wrapped your brain around: FDIC-insured, Big Data, Organic, to name a few. If you’ve ever bought an air purifier or vacuum, you can probably add "HEPA" to that list.
