If you walk down the air filter aisle in the grocery store, you will probably notice that there are a number of different types of air filters. Aside from the size and the price, you may not notice any other obvious difference. So, do you go with the blue one or the green one? Here are some of the common types of air filters:

  • Fiberglass air filters are probably the most inexpensive type of air filter. They typically work just fine if you no one in your home has allergies or asthma or if you don’t have pets. 
  • Next in price and quality are pleated air filters. Like fiberglass air filters, they are disposable. However, their pleats as well as their polyester or cotton material makes them more effective at catching dirt and dust in your home.
  • If you’re looking for a more eco-friendly choice, washable air filters are a good option for you. Although they cost more upfront than disposable air filters, they will save you money in the long run. Be sure to stick to a regular cleaning schedule with these air filters or you could risk mold growth.
  • If you are prone to allergies or have asthma or another respiratory condition, HEPA air filters are your best choice since they can catch up to 99.97% of the contaminants in your home’s air.
