This is an often asked question and important to understand. Firstly let’s explain what HEPA stands for. HEPA is an acronym for HIGH EFFICIENCY PARTICULATE AIR filter. A HEPA filter has a required minimum efficiency of being able to capture 99.97% of all particulate pollution (dust, pollen, mould, bacteria, viruses) above 0.3 microns (µm). To put that into context the standard filtration in many HVAC/air con systems would be just 50% effective on particles sized between 3 and 10 microns. In other words in laymens terms, a standard filter cannot... Read More

When you first start looking into air purifiers and ventilation there’s a lot of technical jargon to get your head around. CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) is one term you will come across, but it’s definitely one to understand. The Clean Air Delivery Rate of an air purifier/Hepa filter tells you how efficient the purifier is at removing pollutants from indoor air. Typically this means the effectiveness of the purifier or filter has been tested on how quickly it can remove pollen, smoke and dust from the air Normally CADR... Read More
The Latest Guidance on Fallow time is that the more air changes per hour (ACH) in a room there are, the less Fallow time is required. So if you can increase your air changes, you can justify lowering your fallow period between patients. https://dentistry.co.uk/2020/10/22/cdo-cuts-fallow-time-requirements/ If you can achieve 10 or more Air Changes per hour, you can reduce your fallow time post Aerosol Generating Procedure (AGP) to just 15 minutes between patients. If you are only getting 1 to 5 air changes per hour, your fallow time will need to... Read More

A recent survey showed that more than 60% of workers are concerned that the air in their workplaces and offices is polluted. The Occupational Health & Safety Magazine stated in an article on this survey that ‘with such a high number of people concerned about indoor air quality, it is important to think how it might affect prospective workers’. Business leaders should not overlook the importance of indoor air quality. Clean and pure air will always be a key factor to help keep your staff safe from the spread of... Read More
One major step towards significantly improving indoor air quality is the upgrading of a building’s HVAC and filter to one that is rated at MERV 13 level or higher. MERV stands for ‘minimum efficiency reporting value’, and a MERV 13 filter is effective at capturing more than 75% of particles sized 0.3 to 1 microns which means it is reasonably effective against mould spores, bacteria and smoke. However, the Sars Cov 2 virus and Influenza particle size is around 0.1 microns, so whilst a MERV 14 filter is definitely a... Read More
CDC STUDY PROVES THAT HEPA AIR FILTRATION CAN HELP REDUCE COVID TRANSMISSION BY NEARLY 50% IN THE REAL WORLD.
CDC STUDY PROVES THAT HEPA AIR FILTRATION CAN HELP REDUCE COVID TRANSMISSION BY NEARLY 50% IN THE REAL WORLD. There has been little dispute that HEPA filters are extremely effective at removing viral particles such as Covid 19 from the air. However, we now have real world proof that HEPA filters actually significantly reduce the transmission of Covid 19 thanks to a recent CDC study of schools. The CDC study reported on Covid 19 infections in 123 primary schools. They compared schools that 1) Did nothing 2) used HEPA filters,... Read More
