A HEPA filter is a high-efficiency particulate air filter. As their name suggests, HEPA air filters are very efficient at removing very small particles from the air and they have become increasingly popular for home use.
HEPA filters have very small fibers that prevent dangerous particles from passing through. It’s the same basic principle as other filters, just on a much smaller scale. The particles get trapped in the filter and are therefore removed from your air.
HEPA filters remove over 99% of particles from your home’s air. That makes them significantly more effective than EPA or efficient particulate air filters, which might only remove 85% of particles from the air.
