Before grasping what True HEPA filters do, we must understand what it is and the end goal for this amazing product.
What is True HEPA filter?
HEPA is an acronym for "High Efficiency Particulate Air" or "High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance." It means that this filter is manufactured, tested, certified, and labeled aligned with current HEPA filter standards.
The benefit of True HEPA and what it does.
True HEPA air purifiers captures up to 99.97 percent of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, which improves and maintain clean fresh air quality in the house. Whirlpool air filter goes through multiple testing to make sure every single filter has the ability to remove and eliminate airborne particles or indoor air pollutants such as household dust, pet dander, tobacco smoke, mold spores, plant pollen and fabric fibers.
Difference between generic filter and genuine filter.
There is a major difference between the two and the most important part of it is: the functionality. Whirlpool filters can be duplicated, however it is only duplicated in the way it looks. Generic filters are harmful not only to your air purifier but potentially harmful to the air you breathe indoors. You never know what generic filters are made from and how exactly it works, because it is not certified nor tested.
How long does it last?
It lasts up to 12 months! Whirlpool carbon pre-filter captures most of the particle, giving your True HEPA filter a lasting result up to a year.
