Filters To Make Your Home Cleaner

I am proud to be a 3M-sponsored blogger, and as part of my responsibilities, I get the opportunity to evaluate 3M products. Opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by me.

When people are trying to make their home as clean as possible, they must invest in air filters for both the heater and air conditioner. Heater filters are often overlooked simply because of how these units are made. These filters are just as important as filters in the air conditioner, and they must be treated in the same manner. The choices below highlight how someone can use their filters to make their home very comfortable.

The Standard Filter

A standard air filter is designed to capture dust and dirt that circulates through the system. These basic filters help people remain healthy without being very expensive. They are often sold in bulk, and they work as soon as they are installed. However, they do not capture all the debris and particles in the air. They simply filter the air to make it a little nicer.

Mold And Mildew

There are filters designed specifically to capture mold and mildew spores. When these particles float through the air, they can end up anywhere in the home. Someone who is having consistent problems with mold or mildew should consider using one of these air filters. The mold and mildew will be cycled back into the system, but it will be caught by the filter when it comes through the second time.

Very Powerful Filters

When people need to have extremely clean air, they can invest in very powerful filters. These filters are used in hospitals to purify the air, and they can work in homes, too. These filters capture all particles in the air, and they effectively sterilize the air as it passes through. People who are sick or infirm will benefit greatly from these filters because they help people to remain well during the year.

When someone invests in the proper filters for their heating system, they will make their home or business much more comfortable. Clean air is easier to breathe, and clean air does not make people sick. The choices are there for homeowners, and they simply need to pick a filter that they are comfortable using.

Allergen Filters


There are some new great brands that provide filters that help to clear the air of some allergens.

The Filtrete Healthy Living Ultimate Allergen Reduction Filter MPR 1900 is effective at capturing 93% of large airborne particles such as dust, pollen and mold spores from the air passing through the filter. It also attracts and captures microscopic allergens like pet dander, smoke, household dust and microscopic particles that can carry bacteria and viruses.
