TOM: Hi! I'm Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit.
If you have unpleasant odors in your home, your first thought might be to spray air freshener or light a candle to mask that smell. But according to the Environmental Protection Agency, simply covering up a bad smell won't solve the problem and you might actually be polluting indoor air in the process.
Instead, consider replacing the filter in your heating and cooling system with the Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter from 3M. This is the most effective odor reduction carbon filter for removing odors throughout your home whether they're from cooking, cleaning chemicals, tobacco smoke mildew, or even pets.
The Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter also captures large airborne allergens from the air keeping out the mold spores and dust mite debris that lead to poor indoor air quality. There's a lot of carbon in this filter. Take a look at this Mason jar. This is about how much carbon is in each and every Filtrete filter. I got to tell you, it does a really good job. In fact, it's 65 times more effective than every other filter that's out there on the market.
In addition, the Filtrete Odor Reduction Filter also helps maintain airflow in heating and cooling system so they run more efficiently and use a lot less energy. The filter is available at select Home Depot and Lowe's stores as well as online at Amazon.
