3M Filtrete FAP01-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the 3M Filtrete FAP01-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier. Now, 3M makes four units like this one, with this unit designed to purify the air in a single room up to 110 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 72 for tobacco smoke, 86 for dust, and 97 for pollen. As a point of reference, the higher that number the better the filter. Now, this unit truly lives up to its’ name by being ultra-quiet. When the fan is set on high it measures a mere 52 decibels. That’s about the same as a typical modern refrigerator. And changing filters on this unit couldn’t be easier. Simply pop off the front cover, remove the filter element, replace it with a new one, and put your front cover back on and you’re back in business. It couldn’t be easier. The small form factor makes it highly portable. This is a perfect choice for small rooms approximately 11 feet by 10 feet in size. Filter life is going to be about 3 months, and this unit does come with a filter change indicator. You simply press the timer and put it on your refrigerator; in 3 months it will alert you that it’s time to change your filter cartridge. Now, of course, in certain circumstances it’s possible for the filter to become clogged before the 90 days has expired. This happens typically in homes where you have a smoker or in a home where something has been done recently to stir up a lot of dust. If you’ve had some construction done, if you’ve had carpet removed recently, maybe you’ve had your mattresses cleaned in the home; these are all examples of things that will release a great deal of dust into the air which will definitely cause your filter to have a shorter life. But under normal circumstances you can expect about 3 months between filter changes. So again, this is the 3M Filtrete FAP01-RS Ultra Quiet Air Purifier, and I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
