Controlling indoor pollutants is vital as most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air filtration is the first line of defense in achieving good health. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies of human exposure

The most efficient way to filter your indoor air is through your forced air heating and air conditioning filtration system. Electrostatic air filters are the most effective technology for filtering your home’s air. An electrostatic filter is much more effective than a standard or pleated air filter. As the air passes through an electrostatic air filter it produces friction that creates a natural electrostatic charge. The charge then attracts household dust particles like a magnet. These particles consist of irritants and allergens such as bacteria, dust mites, pollen, fabric lint, pant and mold spores, human and pet dander,
smoke and more.
