Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old Mariner Ladder climber!
I replaced the Filtrete 1085 Air Cleaning Filter just recently (after about our typical 3 months of use). Although I normally don't write reviews to products I purchase and use regularly, clearly I'm making an exception this time. This past month and a half, we experienced a rare late season resurgence of pollen and other allergens which made our overall disposition somewhat less than amiable. The new replacement filter seems to be the reason for greatly improving our general disposition. Now, if 3M/ Filtrete can make replacements last 1 month longer, then I'll only have to use the ladder 3 times a year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 40wattsDIY Great filter - good quality and Filtrete FPR 7 is just right for smooth airflow
I've sampled many filters over the years - different brands and different FPR levels - and I continue to try new filters every year or so. But this Filtrete FPR 7 is consistently the best of them all IMO. Above FPR 7, filters restrict airflow too much, stressing fan motor and reducing efficiency of A/C and furnace. Below FPR 7 there isn't enough filtration to do the job right. The Filtrete FPR 7 performs at a level I want without stressing the system. Best filter I've ever found and these were on a super sale so I got 2 boxes . . . .

I noticed a while ago that there is a huge difference between the less expensive furnace filters and Filtrete brand. The Filtrete filter picks up the dust/dirt/particles that turn the filter black which indicates (before it is actually black) that it needs to be changed. I check the filter, which has a place to put the date inserted, after 3 months, and, often it can remain a few more weeks. I feel confident that Filtrete filter works, even though it can be a bit costly. Good to buy in bulk and/or on sale.

Although I like & have to have this filter for my house HVAC system, I find that I am changing the filter every month NOT the 3 mos it is supposed to last. I did let one set go approx 45 days, but found the old filters collapsed into the vent due to the lack of air able to pass through. They do clean the air that passes thru, but definitely NOT for 3 months! I would seriously consider another filter if available, at least to have comparison...more to follow if I do find one/some.

I use Filtrete 1000 in my home. We don't smoke so I never realized how much more the Filtrete filter accomplishes beyond just catching dust and allergens. I own a rental property and a single older lady rents from me. To keep her from having to go up and down the basement stairs, I change the filter for her using the same type of Filtrete filter in the rental unit. I started by changing the filter every three months, but the filter was so black I moved up to every two months. Again, the filter was so dark I now change it every month. This alone is testament to how well the Filtrete 1000 filters smoke, dust, and allergens. I'm glad I use Filtrete in my home as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JonH Great product.
Lasts long and cleans the air much better than the cheap fiberglass filters we used to use. We would probably need 4 sets of the cheaper ones to get halfway close to how good these work for 3 months and still not be as good.

I used to see the dust floating around in well lit rooms, family told me about Filtrete filters, I used to use cheap filters. There is definitely a difference in filter quality, after using Filtrete you cannot see dust floating in the air, rooms even seem to smell better, and I have to dust furniture less often.
