After much debate and much research I finally came to the conclusion this Air Purifier was the one. I was not expecting to see much improvement from such a device. But to my suprise I was wrong! My furniture is clear of dust even after cleaning it over a week ago! My overall health has improved as well! I can finally sleep in comfort without having to keep a box of tissues near my bed!! On a regular basis normally I stay up all night sneezing and blowing my nose. Which then leads me to sleepy days and sleepless nights. Thank You so much 3M I couldn't have done it without this product. Im looking forward to purchasing another device and doing business with achooallergy.com! Hooray for no allergies and improve air quality!
Customer Q & A
Q1: How many hours it will work per day?
A: Typically people run these air purifiers 24/7. At this rate, you'll see about 3 months of use from each filter. Generally after three months the filter can hold no more particulate and needs to be changed. The times may vary a bit depending on the specific conditions in the room where it is running.
Q2: How often do the filters need to be replaced. A: Every 3 months.
Q3: Does this unit work in controlling tobacco odors? I live in an apartment and odors are leaching in from the unit below.
A: To some extent yes. However, electrostatically charged filters like the Filtrete, are not nearly as effective at removing odors as units with activated carbon. Even units with activated carbon prefilters, like Honeywell air purifiers, will give you good results for low levels of odors and smoke.

3M Ultra Clean Air Purifier
The 3M Ultra Clean Large air purifier (FAP03-RS) combines a bold design with top of
the line performance. This unit is better than HEPA at capturing
airborne particles. The statically charged filters capture 99.9% of
all microscopic allergens like smoke, smog, pet dander, dust, and
bacteria. Small and inexpensive these 3M air purifiers are ideal for allergy and asthma
sufferers on a budget.
What I like about the 3M Ultra Clean
The best thing about the Ultra Clean air purifier is the units
ability to keep dust and other allergen levels down in an enclosed space. For review purposes,
I took our model home with me and used it in my home office. There
is a perceptible difference in dust levels. I also have noticed it
keeps the air smelling fresher. Though not loaded with additional features, these air purifiers do each have 3 fan
speed settings and the filter change indicators.
Filter change and overall operation is very simple. Simply plug the unit in and set the speed. When replacing the filters, remove the front cover, pull
out the old filter, insert a new one then snap the cover back into place. You can then reset the filter change indicator.
What I do not like about the 3M Ultra Clean
The Ultra Clean is available at a great price, but the replacement
filters are a little expensive for the frequency at which they need to be replaced, every 3 months. Another potential drawback is that the filters
are not HEPA. The filter is made of a charged media that initially outperforms traditional HEPA filters. Being
charged, the trade-off of this is that these filters tend to clog more rapidly than HEPA filters.
In summary, the unit is great for a smaller spaces like a home offices, bedrooms,
or conference rooms. The 3M Ultra Clean is reasonably quiet, priced
well, and is easy to operate and maintain. The medium size Ultra Clean air purifier (FAP02-RS) has all the same technology and
features of the larger model, simply in a smaller package. Once you know the size of the room you can easily select the 3M air purifier
model that is right for you.
