Accumulair® Filters

What are Accumulair® Filters?

Accumulair® filters are air filters designed to filter the entire household. They each are electrostatically charged, come with a specially designed pleated shape, and last up to three months. Accumulair® manufactures over 200 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.

Accumulair® offers five different types of filters:

  • Accumulair® Diamond (APR 1950)
  • Accumulair® Platinum (APR 1550)
  • Accumulair® Gold (APR 650)
  • Accumulair® Emerald (APR 450)
  • Accumulair® Carbon Odor Block

What is APR?

APR stands for Accumulair® Performance Rating. This rating has been established by the manufacturer of the Accumulair® Filters. This rating exists to demonstrate the different levels of efficiency throughout the Accumulair® filter line. Generally speaking, the higher the APR, the better the filter performs in capturing small airborne particles. This rating system is an internal rating system and applies to Accumulair® filters only.

Accumulair® Gold

Special Features:

  • Efficiency up to MERV 8
  • Electrostatic filtration
  • 20 times more efficient than regular fiberglass filters
  • Lasts up to 3 months
  • Available in custom sizes
  • Listed and rated by Underwriters Laboratories as U.L. Class 2
  • Made in USA

Accumulair® Gold is an air filter designed with better air quality and higher filtration efficiency in mind. It is given an APR 650 filter rating, which means that it is a medium-efficiency filter that removes airborne particles smaller than 1 micron. This means that it removes a large variety of indoor air pollutants, including dust mites, bacteria, mold spores, pet dander, pollen, lint, and smoke.

Unlike regular fiberglass filters, the Accumulair® Gold filter uses electrostatic filtration, which is a special filtration media that uses an electric charge to attract and trap air particles. With a dust spot efficiency of 30-35%, the Accumulair® Gold filter removes 20 times more particles than ordinary fiberglass filters. Even with high particulate efficiency, it manages to maintain low resistance to airflow. Accumulair® Gold filters are available in many different sizes, but they can also be custom made to fit any desired filter system.

Construction:

  • 100% synthetic media
  • Pleated shape
  • Hydrophobic fibers
  • Does not support microbial growth
  • Recyclable, galvanized, corrosion resistant metal backing
  • 2-piece heavy duty die cut frame

The construction of the Accumulair® Gold filter is vital to the filter’s performance and durability. It is constructed of 100% synthetic material that provides excellent particulate efficiency with relatively low resistance to airflow. The uniform pleated shape is intentionally designed to maximize airflow and to enhance particle holding capacity. This filter media is made chemical free, so it does not pose threats of contaminating household air. Also, composed of hydrophobic fibers, this filter does not support the growth of microbes like bacteria, mold, mildew, or fungi.

The pleated filter media is laminated to a steel support that helps prevent bending and warping of the filter from pressure as air moves through the filter. The filter is then bonded to the inside of a heavy duty board frame. This two-piece, die cut frame is constructed of a heavy duty, moisture resistant, clay coated board and is designed with horizontal and diagonal grid supports to add to the durability and output of this filter.

How It Works:

Accumulair® Gold filters use electrostatic filtration, which is a special filtration media that is designed to provide higher efficiency filtration. All regular fiberglass filters remove air pollutants from air circulating inside, but they only manage to capture the bare minimum. Electrostatic filters, such as the Accumulair® Gold filters, take filtration to an extra step. As air circulates through the HVAC system, it passes through the electrostatic filter. The electrostatically charged fibers work like tiny magnets to trap the oppositely charged air particles, leaving purified air circulating throughout the house.

Accumulair® Gold filters can be installed in existing filter systems, usually without any necessary modifications. Though Accumulair® Gold filters are often used as a primary filter, they can also serve as a pre-filter for more expensive, higher efficiency filters in industrial and commercial agencies (i.e. hospitals, plants, schools, office buildings, etc.).

Accumulair® Gold filters typically last about three months, but their filter life depends on several factors. Air quality, rate of airflow, types of allergens, and other factors all contribute to the length of filter life. However, for maximum filtration output, it is important to keep the filters replaced regularly because particles begin to build up around the electrostatic fibers, resulting in lower efficiency.

Accumulair® Gold Removes:

  • Dust particles
  • Dust mites
  • Bacteria
  • Mold spores
  • Pet dander
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Pollen grains
  • Lint, dirt, debris, etc.

Ideal For:

  • Anyone with poor to medium air quality
  • Anyone looking for better air quality for home, work, or school
  • Anyone who needs pre-filtration for higher efficiency systems

FAQ

What is an Accumulair Filter? The brand Accumulair has been around more than 10 years. Accumulair makes high quality aftermarket filters right here in the USA! Accumulair air filters are chemical free so you never have to worry about the addition of unnecessary chemicals to your air. Furthermore, the Accumulair filter material is designed so that it will not support the development of mold, mildew, bacteria, or other microorganisms in normal use. So if you are looking for a way to help reduce airborne allergens such as bacteria, particles that carry viruses, pollen, mold spores, fine dust, and pet dander then an Accumulair air filter is for you! Accumulair...as essential as the air you breathe!

Why are there two sizes for each filter? In the filter industry, there are two sizes, the Nominal Size and the Actual Size. The Nominal Size is the advertised or listed size of a filter. This is usually printed on the filter and a whole number, like 16x20x1. However, most of the time the filter will measure something different, the Actual Size. Actual Size is the true, measured size of a filter. If the Actual Size is listed or printed on the filter it will typically be in parenthesis or in smaller font. The Actual Size is typically a fraction like 16.5 x 19.5 x 0.75. ***When purchasing a filter, be sure you are getting the correct Actual Size. Sometimes there is more than one actual size to nominal size.***

What do I do if I ordered the wrong filter? Ordered the wrong filter? No problem! Simply fill out this Return Form and send back the filter. There is no limit on when the return must be processed. For more information see our Return Policy.

What is MERV? MERV means Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value which was developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioner Engineers, ASHRAE. The higher the MERV rating the more efficient the filter will be at capturing airborne particles. Please check with your HVAC specialist as to what MERV rating is best for your system.

What is the MERV rating of Carbon filters? The main use of the Carbon filter is to remove odors from the air. The filters are made with a carbon impregnated media and are not electrostatically charged. The Carbon filter does not have a MERV rating. If you want to remove odors such as cigarette smoke or cooking fumes then the Carbon filter is perfect for you. If you are wanting the best filtration possible then choose a MERV rated filter, remember the higher the MERV, the best the filtration!
