Importance of Changing Our Indoor Air Filter

There is more to keeping our home clean than cleaning the surfaces like counters and carpets. It is important that we make sure the air we breathe indoors is clean. Particles in the air can include pollen, plant and mold spores, lint, dust mite debris and more that can carry bacteria and viruses. Our everyday activities in the home such as dusting, vacuuming, and cooking can increase concentrations of these particles that are invisible to the naked eye, and it can linger in the air for a long time.

No matter how well we clean our home, airborne particles can still circulate, so using a Filtrete filter can help reduce even microscopic particles from the air passing through the filter.

We have always relied on 3M filters, as we feel it has better quality. Having a higher than 1000 filtration level is known to be a better filter. 3M has a variety of filters we can choose from such as this maximum allergen filter Healthy living Filtrete that has a 1900 filtration level. This filter comes with a helpful filter change reminder sticker that we can use to remember we need to change the filter every 3 months. Changing the filter is quite important as it could also affect the performance of our furnace.
