Accumulair Carbon Odor Block filters are air filters designed to filter the entire household. Accumulair manufactures over 185 sizes of air filters, offering a large variety of standard sizes for 1", 2", 4", and 6" depths, as well as 1/2". Accumulair also offers custom made filters to fit any filter system. These filters come in four different types, each based on MERV ratings. They use electrostatic filtration to remove air pollutants like dust, pet dander, pollen, mold, smoke, and bacteria from the home. However, they are unable to trap odors.
Odors are extremely tiny gas particles that accumulate in houses with poor air ventilation. Most filters, including the Accumulair electrostatic filters, are unable to trap odors. However, odors can be removed by carbon filtration. The Accumulair Carbon filter is specifically designed for the purpose of removing and reducing common household odors.

The Accumulair Carbon filter uses carbon filtration to absorb odors and to reduce airborne allergens like dust particles and pet dander. This filter is great for creating a fresher-smelling indoor environment free of unpleasant odors. It removes common household odors like cooking odors, tobacco odors, and pet odors. Like other Accumulair filters, the Accumulair Carbon filters last up to three months, depending on air quality and other factors. They come in over 100 standard sizes, but they can also be custom made to fit virtually any filter system without necessary modifications.
- Activated carbon impregnated filter media
- Pleated shape
- Low resistance to airflow
- Recyclable, galvanized, corrosion resistant metal backing
- Two piece heavy duty die cut frame
The Accumulair Carbon filter is constructed of a special activated carbon impregnated filter media. The special pleated shape of the filter media allows for maximum odor capturing capacity and also lowers resistance to airflow. The pleated carbon media is laminated to a recyclable, galvanized, and corrosion resistant metal backing that adds strength to the filter. The pleated media pack is then bonded to the inside of a two piece heavy duty die cut frame that protects the filter against warping and bending from the heavy pressure of airflow. This die cut frame is also designed with diagonal and horizontal grid supports that add stronger durability and extra support.
How It Works:
The Accumulair Carbon filter utilizes its special construction and filtration media to trap odors, gaseous vapors, and allergens like dust particles. As air flows through the HVAC system, the Accumulair Carbon filter traps these particles using the special properties of the activated carbon impregnated media.
Carbon becomes activated when a carbon source, such as charcoal or coconut shell, is treated with steam. This process creates millions of extremely tiny pores that are highly absorbent, which allows the carbon to trap tiny particles like odors and gases that other filters are unable to trap. In addition, this activated carbon, non-woven polyester filter media is impregnated with an additional chemical, a chemisorbent, that increases the filter’s ability to trap gaseous particles. For example, this filter is impregnated with 150% carbon add-on.
The unique media of the Accumulair Carbon filter means that it does not just reduce odors. Impregnating activated charcoal on a dust filtration media allows this filter to trap allergens and particles while also absorbing odors, smoke, and other gaseous contaminants. This keeps not only a fresher environment but a healthier one, as well. It is important to remember to keep this filter replaced regularly. The pores become filled as they absorb contaminants, eventually ending the filter life. How often the filter should be replaced is dependent on several factors, including rate of airflow and air quality, but it should be replaced roughly every three months to ensure maximum performance.
The Accumulair Carbon filters can be used anywhere—for the household, office, restaurant, or school, etc. They can be installed in any existing filter system and are great for both residential and commercial use. They also make great pre-filters for trapping odors and allergens before they enter the main filter, which allows for longer filter life and higher filtration efficiency.
