What's in Your Home Air?
The indoor air that you breathe can be teeming with microparticles such as dust, smoke, and lint. In many homes, pet dander, mold, and bacteria, complicate the problem. In fact, 99% of the particles circulating in your home's air are one micron and smaller - less than 1/40th the diameter of a human hair. These micro particles can aggravate your allergies, and irritate your respiratory system or simply make your home dusty and dirty.
Fight Back with Filtrete™ Air Filters.
When you want to improve the quality of your indoor air, the FiltreteTM Micro Particle and Airborne Allergen Reduction Filter outperforms all other 3 month, 1" filters at capturing airborne allergens, including pet dander, mold, and bacteria, even microparticles like smoke and dust. That's because it contains permanently electrostatically charged FiltreteTM fibers that work like tiny magnets to capture more of the microparticles that other filters miss.
How Often Should I Change my Filtrete™ Air Filter?
Under normal conditions, replace your Filtrete™ Micro Particle and Airborne Allergen Reduction Filter every three months. However, you may need to change it more frequently if you answer yes to any of the following questions.
Smoker(s) in the home?
Pet(s) in the home?

Vapor/smoke in kitchen from cooking?
Doors and windows opened frequently?
