Efficient filtration provides a healthy and comfortable residential environment. Based on the performance testing for filter materials commonly used in China, the mass balance equation of controlling the indoor PM2.5 concentration was set up, and the filter selection criterion was discussed. An optimal section was suggested by taking into account the economic cost, filter price, and indoor air quality.
