Customer Reviews:

  • Works well....
    Works pretty well, but needs to be replaced more ofter than package indicates.
    That means you use more filters, increasing cost.
    The price should be cheaper

    Just made 4 stars - I'd give 3.5 if possible due to frequency of filter change and cost- MOSTLY COST...more info
  • Try the Advanced Allergen filter if you have allergies or pets
    My house uses forced air for heating. The disadvantage of such a system is that it distributes the dust in the air everywhere in the house. However, it is supposed to be possible to filter out the dust. Over the years, I have steadily increased the quality of the filter that I use for my forced air heating system. However, until now I have not noticed any obvious difference in my allergic reactions that seem to start with the heating season.

    There are two cats in my house. I have read that cat dander, tiny flakes of cat skin shed by the cats, is five times smaller than household dust particles. It stays in the air much longer than ordinary dust before it settles. Because of its small size it requires a more efficient filter to get it out of the air.

    Until this year, I have used of variety of filters with mixed results. However, this year, I started using the 3M Advanced Allergen Filters, the ones in the blue wrapper. These have a 3M Microparticle Performance Rating of 1500, but do not have a MERV rating listed. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and is a number from 1 to 12, produced from a test designed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). A higher MERV rating indicates better filter performance. 3M uses particle data between 0.3 and 1.0 micron size to calculate a Microparticle Performance Rating or MPR. The higher the MPR, the better the filter. However, higher rated filters cost more.

    Here are some of the Filtrete filters offered by 3M:
    Dust & Pollen Filter, Microparticle Performance Rating 600,
    MERV rating of 8
    Micro Allergen Filter, Microparticle Performance Rating 1000,
    MERV rating of 11
    Ultra Allergen Filter, Microparticle Performance Rating 1250,
    MERV rating of 11
    Advanced Allegen Filter, Microparticle Performance Rating 1500,
    MERV rating not available

    The difference made by the Advanced filter was immediately obvious. My running nose stopped running. I assume that the new Advanced filters must be taking out more of the dust in the air including the cat dander. I have not noticed a change in the speed of the circulated air. The additional cost of the Advanced filter is worth it if you have allergies or pets. However, if you are happy with a lower-rated and lower-cost filter, then you can continue using that one I suggest that you check Amazon and vendors on the web to get the best price. ...more info

  • Best Filtrete Ever
    The Filtrete Advanced Allergen filter is one of 3M's top-of-the-line furnace filter, better even than their highly regarded Ultra Allergen filter. It works fantastic. The frame is made from very stiff cardstock, and the media is enclosed in a wire mesh. I've been using Filtrete filters for about 10 years, after a cheap fiberglass filter and a "premium" Lysol Elite filter got sucked into the furnace. The Advanced Allergen filter is my current favorite. My wife and I both have allergies. This filter prevents us sneezing during the ragweed and leaf mold seasons....more info
  • Advanced Allergen 1500
    My son and I have allergies/asthma, we always bought Filtrete's 1250 because I thought that was the highest it went to. We get our furnace checked annually and the serviceman commented that we used a very good product and it helped to maintain the furnace. I had no idea there was a 1500 (better yet), I have not seen it in any stores. So far so good!...more info

  • all right by me !!!
    3M makes a wonderful and efficient "Filtrete Advanced Allergen Reduction Filter" for your central air and heating unit. The standard "default" dimensions are 16 inches by 25 inches by 1 inch wide; and you get 6 filters to a package. In addition, there are several different sizes of this filter just in case your central air/heating unit requires a filter of different dimensions. Some may argue that this product is a little too pricey; but I have allergies especially now that it's springtime and when I use these I notice I cough and sneeze a lot less. It's worth the price! These filters would be ideal for people who own cats and dogs because they are made extra carefully to catch their dander. The actual filter is enclosed within a strong cardboard-type of packing and there's a wire mesh on both the top and the bottom of the filter. Excellent!

    Installation, cleaning and replacement of the filters are all remarkably easy. Just open the slot where your current filter is resting, remove the old filter and insert this one instead. 3M claims that you only get three months worth of use out of this filter; but actually I get about 6 or even 8 months use out of it. One thing that may well help you to get this filter to last as long as possible is to remove it once a month and take it outside where you can clean it of leaves and larger particles of dust. That may be why I get extra long life from each of these filters. Another possible way to get longer life out of each filter is to conserve energy (which we all need to do anyway) and use the central air/heat less frequently; this should extend the life of each individual filter.

    Store these filters in a safe, dry place where no water could get at them; and they'll serve you well. They cost more; but they're worth every penny you'll spend on them.
