new 3 month filter / Help

I purchased the new Dupont pro clean ultimate allergen electrostatic air filter good for 3 months.. As we have allergys and sooooo much dust in this house .. It has been in only 1 month and needs to be changed already ... Money down the drain... any suggestions . should I just stay with the cheap brand .. did have the ducts cleaned recently ....thanks

stay with cheap brand, and if you read the package it said UP TO 3 months. A more restrictive filter will always plug up faster.

I bought the 3M Filtrete once but it plugged up so fast I went back to the cheap ones as well.

If possible to fit on your system you may want to talk to a contractor about a 4 to 5 inch filter cabinet.
