How does where you live affect what air filter I should use?Updated 3 months ago

When thinking about what air filter you should use, humidity levels (which impact mold and mildew growth), seasonal patterns (like allergies or wildfires) and your local AQI (or Air Quality Index) all have a huge impact on how the air outside affects you at home. Additionally, according to the EPA, contaminant levels tend to be 2-5x (and sometimes even 100x) higher indoors than outdoors. Because of this, different homes require different types of air filtration.
