Due to the prevailing coronavirus pandemic, people are spending more time at home these days, thus it becomes crucial to take note of air quality indoors. You may have an HVAC system at home, but it is necessary to change the air filters on a regular basis because they can accumulate dirt particles over time and cause various technical and health problems.
Replacing air filters is vital but you may have to pay for it every time you want a new one – which is pretty often with the current filters. If you are looking for a cost-effective and durable substitute, AirThreds by the Denver-based startup is what you must know of.
AirThreds is a reusable air filter that can soak through odors, allergens, pet dander, mold, dust, and more. You don’t need to replace it rather it can be washed in a machine like your clothes. The filter comprises antimicrobial treated polyester 3D mesh that is made from 100-percent recycled yarns. It generates static electricity that filters odors, allergens etc. All the possible pollutants stick to the filter like a magnet and can then be washed away easily.
Unlike standard air filters, AirThreds uses toxic-free fabric that can retain antibacterial properties even after 50 washes. As being made from recycled materials, the filter has a lesser impact on the environment after use than standard air filters. AirThreds come in 18 different sizes to choose from, making it suitable for a wide range of HVAC systems.
AirThreds is an effective solution to ensure good air quality at home. You don’t need to spend money on a new filter every month. All you have to do is wash to make the air filter new again. It will help you save on the filter replacement costs, reduce landfill waste, and lower carbon emissions.
