At a Glance
Filtrete Micro 1000
The Elite allergen reduction filter's fibers attract air-polluting contaminants (view larger).
Filtrete Micro 1000
By removing dust from the air, the filter also reduces strain on your furnace and air conditioner, helping to keep them running efficiently (view larger).
Electrostatic Design Captures More Particles
The 3M Micro allergen reduction filter is made with both positively charged and negatively charged fibers that act like tiny magnets to attract air-polluting contaminants. Since particles in the air are either positively or negatively charged, they are attracted to and captured by the filter and kept out of your living space.

Electrostatic filters, including the 3M Micro allergen reduction filter, perform better than comparable non-electrostatic fiberglass and washable/reusable filters, because they attract and capture the small, allergy-aggravating microparticles that non-electrostatic filters can't.

Improves Indoor Air Quality
With indoor air a surprising two to five times more polluted than outdoor air, the 3M Micro allergen reduction filter can make a difference in maintaining a healthier home environment by cleaning air with each pass through the filter.

The 3M Micro allergen reduction filter features a 1000 Microparticle Performance Rating (MPR), which means it is able to capture large and small particles from the air, including household dust, pollen, dust-mite debris, mold spores, pet dander, smoke, smog, and bacteria.

Improves Efficiency
This allergen-reduction filter also keeps your heating and air conditioning equipment working efficiently by removing dirt and reducing strain on the motor. It is recommended that you change the filter every three months. However, the effectiveness and life of the filter can vary and depend on the individual conditions in your home.

About Filtrete Air Filters
For nearly 25 years, Filtrete filters have delivered cleaner air to millions of homes, becoming a leader in residential air filtration. Developed by 3M engineers to help capture airborne allergens, the Filtrete filter media is electrostatically charged to act like tiny magnets to attract and capture microscopic particles from the air as it passes through the filter. Today, a dedicated technical team continues to develop innovative filtration solutions for around the home, including air cleaning filters, room air purifiers, and water filtration products.

Filrete Allergen Defense Filters

As you manage your family’s allergies on a day-to-day basis, you’re looking for options to help reduce allergens in your air. Filtrete Allergen Defense air filters turn your central heating and cooling system into a whole house air cleaner. Developed to pull in and trap unwanted particles such as pollen and pet dander from the air, these filters help capture allergens as well as large particles like lint and household dust. For maximum performance, change your filter at least every 90 days.

Tips to improve air quality

Dust:

Regular dusting prevents the buildup of allergens and other pollutants.

Upgrade your filter:

Choose a Filtrete Filter with a higher Microparticle Performance Rating (MPR) to remove more particles from the air in your home

Wash and vacuum:

Stick to a weekly schedule when it comes to washing your bedding and vacuuming your carpets and furniture.

Control the humidity:

Maintain humidity between 30 and 50 percent for maximum comfort.

Change your filter:

Change your filter every 3 months — or more often if you light candles, smoke, use your fireplace, run your fan continuously, own pets or are doing construction.

Get an alarm:

Install a carbon monoxide alarm and test it regularly.

Get ready for summer

  • Have HVAC system inspected

These are great- just be careful that too much filtration can OVERHEAT your heat and air units

I was using the Filtrete dark blue 1500 rated filters and thought they were great. But eventually I found the air flow was less and less and then it almost stopped altogether. I had to call my Heat/ AC guys and they told me that if I used the higher rated filter (1500 or so, different for each system), the one that 'stopped' more allergens/ dust/ etc, that these high rated ones fill up quickly with all the gunk the catch, and that they can slow down the air flow so much that it may cause your heat/ AC machinery to overheat and damage itself.

He switched me to the red Filtretes- they are rated 1000 and not 1500. If you truly need higher levels of filtration, make sure your heat/ ac system can handle it, and maybe you have to change the filters more often (the really highly rated filters grab EVERYTHING so all the dust etc builds up much more quickly and could block the air flow entirely in less time than say the red 1000 ones. So stay as low as you can on the ratings, but if you have to block extra things like dust or mites or allergens, ask your heat/ AC guy to tell you which filter to use, knowing it will capture this much dust/mites/ allergens, and how often you have to change it. Hope that helped, and good luck

ps I myself am going to ask them if i can use the higher rated filters- say the 1500s- if i switch them out much more often. we'll see.

Size: 20x30x1Unit Count: 6
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.

I installed this filter (1000 MPR) and my air handler could not handle it. The filter restricted so much air flow going into my unit that to coils completely froze. Luckily it wasn't too late when I noticed so I replaced the filter with a less restrictive one and the A/C kept working fine. I'm not saying it's a bad filter, just that it was too much filtration for my specific unit which is about 8 years old. A filter rated at 600 MPR or less works better for me. Recomment trying it if your A/C can handle it. Otherwise go with less filtration. I returned mine for a full refund with no problems from Amazon.

Size: 16x25x1Unit Count: 6
I was ready to buy this 6-pack again but decided to go visit the local hardware store with my calculator just to be sure I was saving money. The 1000 MPR Filtrete 6-pack price makes the filters $12.60 each. At Home Depot they are $10.70 and with our TN 9.25% sales tax that makes the filter $11.69 - so not a bargain through Amazon. I priced the 600 MPR and the 1500 MPR also and they aren't cheaper buying through Amazon either. Maybe for around $5.50 difference for the 1000 MP 6-pack it's worth having them delivered to your door. I may have just talked myself into buying these through Amazon again...!

I've used these Filtrete air filters for several years in different houses and I am very pleased with them. Yes, they are pricey but if you're prone to sneezing fits (as I am), they're worth every penny. Supposedly, the filter media is fine enough to capture even wee tiny particulate matter, including smoke and smog.

In addition to breathing easier and filtering out nasty smells from your house (which are huge benefits), I've noticed that using these filters also helps keep the house and tabletops cleaner, and there's less need for that dreaded chore of periodic dusting.

Another significant benefit is the benefit to your heating and cooling equipment. With a central air system costing thousands and thousands of dollars, this is not a small benefit! These high efficiency filters do a fine job of keeping dirt and dust out of the blower housing in your HVAC system. The traditional fiberglass filters (those cheap blue filters) keep small animals and yard waste from entering into your HVAC, but little else. Ever look at a 20-year-old blower housing? Usually they're caked with lots and lots of fine dust. In addition to being gross, that can't be good for an electrical appliance.

I highly recommend these Filtrete filters and I change mine more often than the manufacturer's 90-day recommended interval. And I think they're worth every penny of their hefty price tag.
