Features:
  • Meets the American Lung Association® Health House® Indoor Air Quality Guidelines
  • No unnecessary antimicrobial chemicals added; Filtrete filtering material will not support the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew or fungi in normal use
  • Contains electrostatically charged media to filter and attract particles in the air
Attracts and captures large allergens like:
  • Pollen
  • Mold spores 
  •  Dust mite debris
Attracts and captures microscopic allergens like:
  • Smoke
  • Pet dander
  • Household dust
  • Smog
* This filter should be changed at least every 3 months.  Certain conditions in your home will significantly add particles to the air - this will cause the filter to capture more particles, shortening it's life to less than 3 months.  These conditions would include: dirty ductwork, pets, construction work, sanding projects, tobacco smoke, burning candles, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves.

WHY USE MPR RATHER THAN MERV RATING?

The  Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) industry uses the ASHRAE 52.2 Standard, which assigns a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) to a filter. One part of MERV reports a filter's ability to capture medium to large particles between 1 and 10 microns. This value is helpful in comparing the performance of different filters but it is not adequate alone because particles greater than one micron make up only about 1% of the contaminants in your indoor air.

Another part of MERV addresses submicron particles. 3M calls this the MPR or Microparticle Performance Rating. It measures a filter's ability to capture particles between 0.3 and 1.0 micron. Based on independent laboratory tests, 3M's MPR measures a filter's ability to capture submicron particles that make up 99% of the particles in the air, such as bacteria, smoke and smog.

      I have been using these filters for the last few years and find them very efficient. My house seems to have less dust in it & my allergies do not bother me as much. I feel they do a much better job then my former filters. thank you. Pat Wojnas Monroe Twp NJ

            My dust allergies diminish and there is significantly less dust accumulation on the furniture.

              Because I have allergies, I need to keep the furnace filters swapped out on a regular schedule. Ordering online is perfect: a carton arrive at the door in exactly the size and type of filter that I need. I have to buy 5 different sizes for two houses, so getting the right thing the first time is a huge bonus. There's nothing I hate more than running around to 3 different hardware stores to try to find the right size filters. They are never available.
