Filtrete™ 2011-6 Healthy Living Ultra Allergen Filter, 14"x14"x1", Purple, 1500 MPR
The Filtrete™ Ultra Allergen Reduction Filter is 90% effective at capturing particles like dust, pollen and mold spores from the air passing through the filter. 50% better small particle filtration than our 1000 performance level filter. Keeps your air conditioning and heating systems running efficiently, saving on utilities and maintenance costs. The electrostatic filter attracts and captures airborne dust, pollen, dust-mite debris, lint, mold spores, pet dander, smoke, smog, bacteria, and particles that can carry viruses. With each pass through the specially pleated filter, the air in your living space improves, making for a healthier home environment. This high-performance filter outperforms comparable non-electrostatic fiberglass and washable and reusable one-inch filters.

Electrostatic Design Captures More Particles
The 3M Ultra 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 Ultra 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.
The electrostatic charge of Filtrete air filters acts like a magnet to attract and capture particles that can pass through fiberglass filters or other non-charged pleated filters. A Filtrete filter with electrostatically charged fibers performs better than non-electrostatic filters. The actual effectiveness of an air filter in allergen reduction depends on a variety of factors including the amount of air that the filter processes, the nature of the allergens and the rate at which the allergens are being introduced into the home. Electrostatic filters are most effective when new and clean.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
With indoor air a surprising two to five times more polluted than outdoor air, the 3M Ultra allergen reduction filter can make a difference in maintaining a healthier home environment by cleaning air with each pass through the filter.
The 3M Ultra allergen reduction filter features a 1500 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, bacteria, and other allergens. This high-performance filter meets American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest Health House Program’s indoor air quality guidelines.
This high-performance 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.
