3M AC Filter: PM 2.5
3M AC Filter: Dust & Pollen
3M AC Filter: Dust, Pollen & Allergen
Living in or near a polluted area is not the only cause of air pollution in your home. Seemingly harmless activities such as cleaning and cooking can release allergens and pollutants into the air.
Developed by 3M engineers, the air filter helps trap PM2.5 and other pollutants in the air. It's charged with static electricity which acts like a small magnet to attract and capture small particles from the air when it passes through the filter. With 3M AC filters, your family will breathe cleaner and healthier air.
Electrostatic filters are most effective when they're new and clean. Make sure you're changing your filter at least every three months for maximum effectiveness.
Discover simple ways to manage indoor pollution for fresh air:
How is indoor air quality worse than outdoor air quality?
Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.
How often should I change my 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter?
For maximum effectiveness, we recommend you apply a new filter every three months. However, the life of the filter can depend on the individual condition of air quality in your home. You can assess physical state of the filter before you decide to change.
Breathing clean healthier air indoors will make me more vulnerable to diseases or reduce my immunity when I breathe the outside polluted air?
Actually, it is the average exposure during the day that is most important for your health. The World Health Organisation defines their guidelines for air pollution levels based on the 24-hour average value. By breathing clean healthier air inside, you reduce your daily average exposure level and do the best to protect your health.
Is 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter washable?
Washing the filter will reduce the effectiveness of the filter and, is not recommended.
Does 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter remove odors?
No. But in the case of activities involving combustion, removing smoke particles can help reduce the odor.
Will 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter eliminate the need for dusting?
3M™ Air Conditioner Filter may reduce the need for dusting, but won't eliminate it. Atmospheric dust consists of a wide variety of particulates ranging in size from 0.001 micron to a relatively large 100 microns. Because of the weight of the large particles, they will settle on your furniture long before they could reach your filter.
How does 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter compare with electronic air purifiers?
The efficiency of 3M™ Air Conditioner Filter approaches that of the top-of-the-line electronic air cleaners. Some tests indicate that in the large particle size range (1.0-10 microns), 3M™ Air Conditioner Filters are more effective. Price is a factor, too. Top electronic units cost INR10,000 – INR20,000, require maintenance in terms of filter change and also have a running electricity cost associated with them. 3M™ filters cost a fraction of this price, and generally only need attention every three months.
