Tired of HEPA and carbon filters that don’t seem to last, or have to be replaced too soon? It’s not always the case, but too often, prematurely clogged HEPA and / or carbon block filters are caused by not replacing prefilters every 2-3 months, which causes particles that have been trapped by the pre-filter to begin to slip through.
Another issue that causes pre-filters to ‘fail’ is over-vacuuming. Vacuuming carbon & HEPA air purifier pre-filters is usually fine to do one time, but after that, the electrostatic charge of properly made pre-filters tends to go away and when that charge isn’t there to hold particles, they begin to slip through and clog the HEPA and carbon filters, causing unnecessarily premature main filter replacements.
Truth is, if you want the best performance and maximum life from your HEPA & carbon filters, you must replace the used pre-filters with new, ‘full-charge’ pre-filters every 2-3 months, and sometimes sooner—and you can only vacuum once. Also be sure to use replacement air purifier pre-filters from the manufacturer of your air cleaner or purification system.
Cheap, large packages of cut-to-fit pre-filter material, are not going to work the same as proper pre-filters from your air purifier’s manufacturer. In the event that your air cleaner does not have a pre-filter, we do recommend that you use something like that cut-to-fit filter material, but make sure it is electrostatic to make sure it does the best job possible of protecting your HEPA and carbon filters.
Replacement air cleaner pre-filters is just a small necessary cost to ensure proper performance of the air cleaner you bought to improve indoor air quality—and in reality, HEPA and carbon pre-filters only amount to a few cents a day, but prevent potentially hundreds of dollars in extra HEPA and carbon filter changes.
