Carbon Air Filter Q&A

How does a carbon air filter work?

Carbon filters work under the same principle as other air filters. The blower motor in your HVAC system pulls air through the filter and the media inside the filter traps airborne particles, preventing them from escaping back into the air.

What does a carbon air filter do?

Like other air filters, carbon filters trap airborne particles like dust and debris, but they also filter out odors. Our carbon filters are built using a certain type of synthetic media that is designed to trap odor producing air pollutants. This media traps volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which are the source of many odors. This is why our carbon filters are the best at eliminating pet, cooking, and smoke smells.

Do carbon air filters have MERV ratings?

Our carbon air filters use MERV 8 media – they are comparable to MPR 600 & FPR 5 air filter models. They effectively filter out dust, lint, debris, mold, pollen, dander, dust mites, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). To learn more about MERV ratings, click here.

What should I look for in a carbon air filter?

When looking for a carbon filter, it’s important to check that the media used in the filter is able to trap volatile organic compounds. VOCs are the primary culprits of indoor odors and must be removed if you want clean-smelling air. An odor-eliminating charcoal filter that can trap VOCs will help eliminate pet, smoke, and cooking odors. You should also look for a carbon filter that is sturdy and made with the highest quality materials. Our charcoal filters are reinforced with wire backing and made with durable recycled materials that are heat and humidity-resistant. We never use fiberglass in our filters so you can rest assured that your family is breathing the safest and cleanest air.

How often should I change carbon air filters?

Our carbon air filters are designed to last 3 months. That’s 3 times longer than the average fiberglass filter, which only lasts about 1 month at the longest. Whether you’re using a carbon filter or any other MERV rating, we recommend you change your air filter at least once every 90 days to ensure maximum performance.

What is the best carbon air filter?

Filterbuy’s carbon air filters are the best option on the market. Not only do our filters effectively trap airborne pollutants and smells, but they are also built with longevity and durability in mind.
