    Opt for a Filtrete™ Pollen & Pet Dander OR Allergen Defense OR Allergen Defense Extra OR Allergen Reduction Air Filter to transform your central heating and cooling system into a whole-home air filtration operation. This no-nonsense filter helps capture varying sizes of particles, from the large (lint, pollen, dust and pet dander) to the microscopic (smoke and smog).

    • Outperforms fiberglass, washable and non-electrostatic 3-month pleated 1" home air filters for your furnace, air conditioner, or HVAC system
    • Exclusive Filtrete™ Brand 3-in-1 technology from 3M traps unwanted air particles, letting cleaner air flow through
    • Available in 800, 1000, 1085 and 1200 MPR (Microparticle Performance Rating) and have a rating of MERV 11
    • 1000 and 1200 MPR also available in 4”, 4” slim fit and 5” air filters
    • For optimal performance of your heating & cooling system or HVAC system, change your home air filter at least every 90 days for 1” filters, and at least every 12 months for 4” and 5” filters.
    • For residential use only
    • The higher the MPR, the more microparticles - such as pollen, pet dander, smoke, bacteria and viruses - your filter will capture from the air passing through it
    • A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool - wasting energy. Sign-up for a filter change reminder program that works for you!

    Filtrete™ Allergen Defense Air Filters is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 423.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh The air is noticeably fresher and therefore, cleaner. We change it every (3) months. Very satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18x20x1 My Filtrete HVAC air filter is not a common size, so I am so glad to find it when I can. I will drive around just to find it because I simply won't settle for anything other than Filtrete. Evidence of its effectiveness is when I change it every 2 or 3 months (depending on season) and comparing the new to the old filter. Just glad to see that I'm not breathing in all the dust, pollen, etc. that the air filter catches!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We live in an area called "sinus valley" plus we have two dogs and two cats. These filters help keep out the allergens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for pets I have pets and love how this filters the pet hair and dander... I had some one come over who was allergic to cats, but did fine in my home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't live without it Have used Filtrete filters since they first came on the market....Less dust in my home & my allergies are so much easier to control. Now my home has recently been changed from oil to gas heat. Filter size is very different from what i used with oil burner...finding the new size (16 x 25 x 1)harder to find , but won't settle for any other filter !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decrease Allergy Symptoms My daughter and I moved to Texas from Wisconsin 2 years ago and experienced the surge of year-round allergies that this area is known for. Our landlord recommended this allergy filter and boy did it help! We both have less symptoms and I now only need occasional allergy medication. Will definitely keep buying!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I go to Lowe's just to purchase this particular filter, and I buy 2 two-packs, which saves me a couple of dollars. Then I use a 3M rebate to save even more. I live in Phoenix, AZ, which is a very dusty climate, and I am always impressed at the amount of dust they pull out of the air.
