The Benefits of Carbon Air Filters

Activated charcoal is taking the world by storm. It’s used for skin care, teeth whitening, and even deodorant. But have you ever thought about what it could do for your air?

Activated carbon (also called activated charcoal) air filters go above and beyond standard particle filters. Carbon is a powerful absorbent capable of trapping odors like cigarette smoke or pet smells. With an activated carbon filter in your air system, your home air can feel fresh and clean all the time.

Carbon filters can also remove potential hazardous gases from your air. The EPA recommends an activated carbon filter in order to eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in your home. VOCs are emitted as gases from several common liquid or solid sources. Examples include paints, cleaning supplies, pesticides, cosmetics, and hobby products like glue or markers. These chemicals are found indoors 10 times more than outdoors and can cause adverse health effects, according to the EPA.

TRION carries a line of high-quality, reliable carbon air filters: Air Bear® Black filters. Activated carbon filters have porous surfaces that are perfect for capturing microparticles that other filters miss. The Air Bear filter’s pleated design increases surface area for maximum absorption. And with a reinforced frame, these filters stay efficient even when dirty or exposed to high humidity.
