While standard HVAC filters prevent dust and debris from infiltrating through your system, high-efficiency filters go a step further by trapping contaminants like bacteria, mold, dust, dander, fumes, pollen, and viruses. High efficiency particulate air filters are best for people with allergies and those prone to respiratory difficulties since they are effective in screening contaminants up to 99.97%.
Keep in mind a “highly efficient” filter doesn’t necessarily mean it is the best filter for your system. The tighter the space to catch more particles also means less space for air to pass through easily.
