For the last several years I’ve been using a reusable filter that can be cleaned every month and I thought it was doing a great job.
We have a lot of black furniture in our house so it’s very easy to tell when it’s time to dust, pretty much twice a week. I had always assumed that dust was caused by the dirt that enters your home so there wasn’t a whole that can be done to correct it.
Then I started reading about what dust was really made of and it’s discussing. So I study which air filters gave me the best filtering quality for my money and the clear winner was the Filtrete 1500.
Wow, what difference it made in the dust buildup on my furniture. It now takes about 1 ½ weeks to accumulate the same amount of dust that that used to accumulate in about 3 days. I can’t believe it was breathing all of that extra stuff into my lungs every day.
I’ve used the 1500 for 2 ½ months and I’m getting ready to change it for the first time and it looks like it needs it.
These filters are not what I would call cheap, but if they last up to 3 months and they filter this well, they are definitely worth the few extra dollars.
