Are electrostatic filters better than HEPA filters?
A true HEPA filter is 99.97% efficient on removing dust particles from 0.3 microns to 10 microns. A LakeAir electrostatic cell is 97% efficient on removing dust particles from 0.1 micron to 10 microns. These numbers are very similar. Based on the efficiency numbers alone the HEPA is clearly a better filtration type.
How often do you clean an electrostatic filter?
