Product of the week: 3M Filtrete Air Purifiers

3M filtrete ultra clean air purifierThe groundhog said it would be an early spring this year, and many of us have already begun to see the sun through the clouds these last few days. That means it’s time for spring cleaning to commence, and cleaning up your indoor air should definitely be a part of your spring cleaning routine. The pollen is on it’s way, but you can help prevent allergies before they start with a good air purifier.

So we’ve chosen several Filtrete room purifiers as this week’s featured products.

The 3M Filtrete Ultra Clean air purifier comes in two sizes to accommodate large or small rooms, and filters 99.9 percent of particles, including mold spores, dust mite debris, household dust, pet dander, odor carrying particles, virus carrying particles, smoke, smog, and, of course – pollen. This air purifier also features a filter change indicator light, reminding you when it’s time to change the filter. Its sleek contemporary design and quiet operation is likely to compliment any room in your house, without disturbing the peace.

The 3M Filtrete Ultra Quiet (FAP00-RS) air purifier is not only ultra quiet, as the name implies; it’s also 96 percent effective at capturing airborne particles smaller than 0.2 microns. Try the Filtrete FAP01-RS model for even more advanced purification. These air purifiers bear the government-backed Energy Star symbol; they are 44 percent more efficient than standard air cleaners and will reduce your energy bill, along with greenhouse gas emissions.

For a limited time, you can save $10 on any one of these indoor air purifiers with a Filtrete mail-in rebate.

But it doesn’t stop there. Filtrete is also offering a $6 mail in rebate on all of its filters that have an MPR rating of 1000 or higher. (This rating, similar to MERV, determines how efficient the filter will be at capturing small particles.) This includes the Filtrete Micro Allergen (Filtrete Red) Air Filter, the Filtrete Ultimate Allergen (Filtrete Deep Blue) Filter, the Filtrete Ultra Allergen (Filtrete Purple) Filter and the Filtrete Elite Allergen (Filtrete Black) Filter.
