Types of Household Filters

Filters act as an intake for liquids and gases, like water and oxygen. Filters also clean out impurities and return the improved material. Aside from this generalized process and their overall purpose, water and air filters are very different. The following are a few common household filter types.

  • Panel Filters – Panel filters use fiberglass to filter out larger airborne contaminants. Fiberglass is a compressed synthetic material. Panel filters are often located on HVAC equipment, like heaters, to prevent dust from building up in and around the unit. These filters are not effective in removing smaller contaminants like pollen or other air impurities. The American Lung Association does not consider panel filters adequate cleaning devices for gases for human intake.
  • Pleated Filters – In a few ways, pleated filters are like panel filters. Pleated filters are usually made of fiberglass. They are also commonly located on heaters and other HVAC equipment. They are more effective than panel filters, though. These filters are more effective because they have a larger surface area, which means more unwanted material can be trapped in them. This is easily accomplished by pleating the filter material, like an accordion. Pleated filters are made in many different sizes and efficiency ratings. Scented or electrostatic charge filter types are often available.
  • HEPA – HEPA, high efficiency particulate air, filters are highly effective. HEPA filters are able to remove bacteria, mold spores, and other tiny particles from the air. Unfortunately, HEPA filters are not always available for HVAC units and other common household equipment. These filters are particular important in locations where air quality is vital, such as health care facilities.
