The 3M Filtrete Dust and Pollen Furnace Filter:
This air filter is the right choice if you're looking for an economical upgrade from cheap 1 month filters. The Filtrete "Blue Filter" features electrostatically charged fibers and is ideal for high-velocity heating/cooling systems.
Even though Filtrete offers two better filters than the Dust & Pollen Filter, (the Micro Allergen & Ultra Allergen) the Dust & Pollen Filter is still more effective than the average washable or fiberglass disposable air filter which normally does not even remove dust from the air.
The Dust & Pollen "Blue Series" Filter Reduces:
Pollen when ingested into the human body causes the immune system to produce large amounts of antibodies, which in turn causes chemicals such as histamines to be released. The release of these chemicals cause the body to have symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes.
Mold Spores when mold found in wood, ceiling tiles, wallpaper, paint, carpet, sheet rock, and insulation is disturbed mold spores are released into the air. Mold spores can cause symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy or watery eyes.
Dust Mite Debris a combination of dead skin and dust mite feces, this debris lives in our beds, chairs, couches, and our children's stuffed animals. Dust Mite Debris is almost as effective as pollen at causing symptoms such as sneezing, running nose, and watery eyes.
Household Dust dust accumulates everywhere in your home; carpets, tables, TV screens, clothes, walls, etc. Simply walking around in your home may disturb or "stir up" dust into the air which can irritate your immune system.
Lint minute pieces of fiber that come from fabric, plants, paper, etc. that float around in the air. Lint can cause allergic reactions in some people.
