Miele HEPA filters are independently certified to meet or exceed HEPA filtration standards of
trapping 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger. A rubber seal ensures no air leakage while a layer of generally
activated charcoal adsorbs light odors. This filter will leave your house smelling fresher and you breather easier as it
removes allergens like dander and pollen. In addition to HEPA filters, Miele offers a variety of filters to meet your
specific filtration needs whether it is simply light filtration or pet odor removal.
A lot of vacuum cleaners come equipped with HEPA filters, but few, if any, spend the time and
resources to ensure that those filters meet the exacting standards of a Miele. Not only are the filters
made from quality materials, they are independently certified to meet or exceed HEPA filtration
standards. Most of the HEPA filters meet or exceed H13 HEPA standards. H13 is a European standard that is slightly different than
the American version of HEPA. U.S. HEPA is 99.97% filtration of particles 0.3 microns or larger. H13 HEPA in the EU is 99.95%
filtration of particles as small as 0.1 microns. H13 filtration is what all models are switching to and what all new vacuums
have in them when you receive them. This type of filtration combines with a sealed system, pre-motor filter, post filter and
9-ply dustbag to create an air cleaning system - in a vacuum!
Even the least amount of filtration any Miele offers,
the AirClean Filter, you still get filtration that surpasses most comparable models by trapping 95% of all particles 0.3 microns and larger.
All Miele filters should be replaced annually (after approximately 50 hours of use) or sooner if needed. And while many Miele uprights and canisters lack
a filter change indicator, new Miele HEPA filters feature a TimeStrip Indicator. You crush/push the small green button on the filter, and when the red
bar reaches the end of the strip, it's time to change the filter. It is best to replace your Miele HEPA AirClean or Active AirClean filter at least once
per year or when indicated.
The Miele AutoEco is heavy but pushes easily and is extremely effective. A recent appliance repair person at our house to repair a sub zero refrigerator commented that it is the best vacuum on the market. Love it! More Testimonials
