Overview

Custom size air filters are built to your exact specifications. As a result, these filters may not be returned for refund or credit. All custom size air filters are built to tolerances of + or - 1/8".


CAUTION: Most air filters are stamped with a size that is NOT the actual dimension of the filter. Example: A 16x25 filter typically measures 15 1/2 x 24 1/2. Please MEASURE your current air filter in order to get the exact dimensions.

Description

The Custom Accumulair® Platinum filters come with many benefits. Not only are they custom made to fit any air system, but they are also highly efficient and designed to deliver better air quality for the whole house. This is very important, especially for those who suffer from breathing problems like asthma or allergies.

Your indoor air quality has a great impact on your breathing. Most people spend the majority of their time indoors, but unfortunately, this is where air pollution is highest. Though this may be surprising, it is true. The Environmental Protection Agency states that indoor air is at least 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Breathing pollutants like allergens, smoke, and bacteria can cause or worsen breathing problems or health problems.

It is so important to have a good air filter. By removing air pollutants running through your system, not only do you keep your HVAC system working more smoothly, but you also keep cleaner, healthier air flowing throughout your house. And it does not matter what size filter you have or how hard it is to find a filter replacement, because we can make the perfect filter for you!

How It Works

The Accumulair® Platinum is composed of a special electrostatically charged filter media that enhances filtration performance, making it 30 times more efficient than regular fiberglass filters. As air passes through the filter, air pollutants are attracted to the oppositely charged filter media like a magnet.

The Accumulair® Platinum is given an APR 1550 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.

Construction

The construction of the Accumulair® Platinum filters is specially designed to create cleaner air and longer-lasting filtration. These filters are constructed of a special Tribo-Electric synthetic media, which ultimately leads to higher efficiency and low resistance to air flow. Not only do the co-polymer micro-fibers help produce higher efficiency, but they are also hydrophobic, which means the filter does not absorb moisture and will not support the growth and spread of microbes like mold, mildew, bacteria, and fungi.

For more dependable structure, the pleated filter media is laminated to a recyclable, galvanized, and corrosion resistant metal backing, which also contributes to low resistance to air flow. This media pack is then bonded to the inside of a two-piece, die cut frame that is constructed of a heavy duty, moisture resistant, clay coated board; designed with diagonal and horizontal grid supports, this final product produces longer, stronger durability for the filter.

Filters Made Specially for You!

Our custom filters can be made to your exact specifications, and we can produce virtually any filter size.* The first step is to measure your filter for the exact dimensions. We have listed all the sizes we offer for height, width, and thickness. (However, when you receive the filter, it may not be stamped with the exact dimensions but rather a rounded number; for example, a 16 x 25 filter typically measures 15 ½ x 24 ½.) If for whatever reason you cannot find your size or if you have any additional concerns, feel free to call our toll-free number 877-476-9511 for any questions you may have.

 

*Because the filters are made to exact specifications, we cannot guarantee a refund.

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!
