How Do Filtrete Smart Air Filters Work?

If you have seen advertisements or commercials for smart air filters, you may have found yourself wondering what they are and what they do. Even if you are a stickler for indoor air quality and are familiar with the Filtrete brand, you may have still found yourself wondering: “How do Filtrete Smart Air Filters Work?”

At Blue Flame, we are familiar with all of the latest technology developed to improve your indoor air quality (IAQ). Here is our introduction to the Filtrete Smart Air Filter for beginners.

What is a smart air filter?

A smart air filter slides in between your air ducts and the interior of your home, just like a traditional filter. Once it has been installed, it monitors airflow, usage of your HVAC system, and time since the last installation. It then notifies the homeowner when it needs to be changed. This allows you to take control of your indoor air quality with unprecedented accuracy.

How do Filtrete smart air filters work?

Filtrete smart air filters use a Bluetooth connection to your smart phone to remind you when they need to be changed. After purchasing your filter, you must download the Filtrete Smart App on your mobile phone and create an account. Within the app, you can customize your settings and alerts based on your allergies and IAQ needs. You can also set your location in the app so that you will receive alerts about pollen, pollution, and other outdoor air quality announcements.

After your app is all set up, you will attach a Bluetooth enabled sensor to the side of your filter and pair it with your smart phone. Once your sensor has successfully paired with your phone via Bluetooth, you simply slide the air filter into place.

What are the benefits to using a smart air filter?

Filtrete Smart Air Filters are ideal for anyone with asthma or allergies who is monitoring their indoor air quality closely. At Blue Flame, we always recommend that homeowners should change their HVAC air filters at least once every 90 days, or once every 30 days in homes with lots of dust or pet hair. But changing your air filter is a chore that is often forgotten, even though it is very important.

Smart air filters will do the remembering for you and make sure you know exactly when your air filter is full or clogged. The partner app also keeps track of your particular filter type and size so that you can easily order the correct filters every time. For anyone struggling with allergies, the daily information about outdoor air quality can be extremely beneficial.
