| Excellent for my toddler's room|
Reviewed by: Toddler Allergy/Asthma Sufferer from San Francisco, CA
This is just the right size for my 2 year old's room. I noticed cleaner air after one day of use. So easy to use. Love the three settings. Use it on the highest as a sound machine as well. Filters are expensive, but oh so worth it. My toddlers night coughs have reduced tremendously.

Like most online customers, I am highly skeptical about the reviews on ANY website. For nearly 10 years, I've been struggling with allergies. When I read what 3M Filtrete Ultra Quiet Air Purifier can do for allergy sufferers, I had to check it out. I've been using it for one month and my indoor allergies have decreased dramatically. I sleep better all thanks to 3M Filtrete Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. Get one for your room if you have allergies or asthma.

The Filterete is a very sleek looking air purifier that delivers on performance in making the air quality better for people who must deal with allergies.
It is quiet and is working well in giving me a better night's sleep. This model is reasonably priced and is portable for me to move from room to room if need be. I am pleased with the Filterete. It is my first purchase of an air purifier that rids the room of dust mites, mold, and other allergens. The product came quickly and very well packaged.

3M Filtrete Ultra Quiet Air Purifier
The 3M Ultra Quiet (FAP01-RS) is one of the absolute quietest air purifiers available on the market. The
charged fibers in the filter capture microscopic debris like: smoke, smog, household dust, pet
dander, bacteria, and particles that can carry viruses. Additionally, the easily changeable filter
captures 99.9% of large airborne allergens like pollen, mold and dust mite debris. Compact, light and economical,
this 3M air purifier is a good buy for someone wanting cleaner air on a budget.
What I like about the 3M Ultra Quiet Air Purifier
The best attribute of the 3M Ultra Quiet is that this air purifier is one of the most reasonably priced
models available. When you factor in the initial cost, replacement filters and energy consumption this compact
air purifier will cost about $0.30 per day to own and operate. That's a little over $8 a month. Many models will cost you
2 to 3 times that amount to own and operate.
Secondly, this unit is light and very quiet. This air purifier is low enough to be standing next to it and still hold a conversation
over the phone without having to turn the unit down or off all together.
While no 3M air purifier uses traditional HEPA filters, the electrostatic filters is made of the same media that makes Filtrete
furnace filters some of the best and most popular available today. The electrostatic nature of the filter media leads to a cleaning
efficiency that is higher than HEPA standards. The drawback to this is listed below.
What I do not like about the 3M Ultra Quiet Air Purifier
The Ultra Quiet is limited by its size. An 11' x 10' room is about all the larger you can go with and this unit still be
effective. Additionally, because 3M uses electrostatic filters in lieu of traditional, more expensive HEPA
filter media, filter changes are more frequent. Still, with the added cost of the filter, this air purifier is inexpensive to own and operate, as
illustrated by the cost listed above. Lack of smoke or odor control could be improved. While the filters to capture smoke particles, activated carbon
is needed to tackle medium to heavy smoke and odor pollution.
In summary, the 3M Ultra Quiet Air Purifier comes complete with the latest advances in air
filtration technology in a stylish yet unobtrusive design. The filters provide high filtration
efficiency and low airflow resistance which results in a highly efficient air purifier that operates
quietly. This purifier offers a no frills approach to air filtration at a very reasonable price. For smaller areas in need of particle and
allergen (dander, dust mite allergen, pollen, mold spores) filtration a 3M air purifier may be just right for you.
