3M Filtrete FAP02-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the 3M Filtrete FAP02-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. Now, 3M makes four units similar to this one. This unit is designed to purify the air in a room up to 160 square feet in size. Using an electrostatic filter element, it captures 99.9% of particles like smoke and smog, pollen, mold, dust mite debris, household dust, bacteria, and even particles that can carry viruses. This unit is certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers with a clean air delivery rate of 103 for tobacco smoke, 128 for dust, and 149 for pollen. Now, as a point of reference, the higher that number, the better. In fact, this unit has higher air circulation and better dust and pollen reduction than a comparable Hepa filter. Now, changing filters on this unit couldn’t be easier. You simply snap off the front cover, remove the filter element, reinstall and replace the front cover. It couldn’t be easier. This unit comes equipped with two filter change indicators. One is the standard timer based filter change indicator; at 90 days it gives you the alert that it’s time to change your cartridge. But the other filter change indicator is much more sophisticated and higher quality. It actually analyzes the amount of particulate on the filter element itself and gives you a green, yellow, red indicator when it’s time to change the cartridge. So you’re not just changing the element based on time, the analyzer is actually telling you how much particulate is clogging your filter element, so that you can know when it’s not doing its’ job anymore and needs to be replaced. So again, this is the 3M Filtrete FAP02-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
