Smart HVAC Filters
The Filtrete Smart Air Filter, with its Bluetooth® enabled sensor, pairs with the Filtrete Smart App to help track filter life and determine optimal time for replacement. These air filters provide a user experience for consumers that shows data on actual, real time filter performance along with outdoor air quality.
