My husband has been an Electrician for the past 20 years, so it is no surprise that we always invest time and money to make our home more energy efficient. I was recently given the opportunity to review Filtrete Filters by 3M air filters for my heating and cooling system. I needed the change too! I have bought air filters from as little as $2-$22 and all were mediocre. Why? Well, the generic no name brands caught the dust & sometimes just masked odors from our pets, mildew, cooking, cleaning products etc and gave temporary relief but when the air conditioning was off, but the odors were still there.
Filtrete Filters by 3M are carbon filter that once activated, remove odors in the home (removes, not masks odors). The high performance filters use electrostatic charged filters and attracts and captures microscopic allergens like pet dander, dust and other microscopic particles that carry bacteria, viruses and odors. I notice that in the winter months I have to change our air filters much more often when purchasing the generic air filters. That’s not saving me time or money, is it? These Filtrete Filters by 3M Oder Reduction Filters cost on average $15.99 but last 3 months!!
My husband loved that the Filtrate Filters by 3M maintained the airflow & took the stress off our cooling system. The reduced the amount of energy needed to circulate & cool the house means my cooling system can last monger and be more energy efficient. Being a Mom, I like that it captures allergens like dust mites, mold spores, pollen and more.I love my children and always want them to feel 100%, but have my children suffer from allergies inside the home just isn’t an option. We live in Southeast Louisiana so mold is something that effect many families especially my children. My kids can now stay healthy longer with no sniffling or sneezing in sight!
Our son changed the air filters today and the very first thing we noticed was that the Filtrete Filter by 3M is double sided. One side captures air borne particles and the other side removes household odors. The carbon filter also makes the filter itself so durable. Some brands are so thin and flimsy that they can easily tear apart simply by changing out the filter OR they are too tightly women and can restrict airflow from the cooling system. Time is money, so I need my cooling and heating system to function quick and with little stress.
