Unlike simple timers and ineffective conventional filter life indicators, the Filtrete FAP03-RS Ultra Clean Air Purifier is equipped with a state-of-the-art filter life analyzer that constantly measures the amount of particles captured by the filter.
In a typical room, an air purifier filter will become completely clogged with tiny particles of dust, pollen, mold, etc. after 2-3 months of use. 3M recommends that you change the filter at least every 90 days, or when the filter change indicator is red - whichever comes first.
How do I know when to change my Filtrete Air Purifier filter?
- Set the fan at it's highest speed
- The Yellow, Green, and Red lights in the center of the speed control knob will flash for 10 seconds as the filter life analyzer measures the quantity of particles in the filter
- After 10 seconds, one of the three lights will stay on...
- A green light means the filter is good
- A yellow light means the filter has only 20% life remaining - time to order a replacement filter
- A red light means the filter should be changed immediately
How do I remove the used filter and install a replacement filter?
