Is your air purifier filter working as efficiently as it should? If not, then you probably need a pre-filter. Air purifiers are designed to trap huge amounts of air pollutants from the air in your room, and since air pollution is more heavily concentrated in some areas than in others, some filters need an extra touch. That extra touch is a pre-filter. Pre-filters are designed to collect large airborne particles before they reach the main filter; this keeps your main filter from becoming clogged. Not only does this make your filter last longer, it also makes it more efficient.
This particular product is a carbon pre-filter designed to fit any GE air purifier model that requires a pre-filter. It uses activated carbon, which is an extremely absorbent type of filter. Carbon becomes "activated" by treating charcoal with oxygen; this process creates extremely tiny pores that are highly absorbent. This pre-filter has the ability to trap large amounts of smoke and odors, eliminating common household odors like cooking odors, bathroom odors, pet odors, tobacco odors, musty odors, etc. It also traps large airborne particles like dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold. This keeps the main filter more efficient and lasting longer.
This filter comes in a large 15-3/4" x 48" cut-to-fit sheet. It can be cut to fit your air purifier model and, depending on the model, makes 1 to 6 pre-filters. This saves on replacement costs! The pre-filter needs to be replaced every 2 to 3 months for optimum performance. This is a great way to have higher filtration efficiency at a more affordable price!
