While traditional air filters have long been the most common type of air filter on the market, carbon air filters are becoming a popular option for people concerned about air quality and purification.  As homeowners and consumers have become aware of the pollutants in their homes, they are discovering the benefits of carbon filtration and its ability to pull specific contaminants out of the air. 

Take a look at the pros and cons of both traditional and carbon filters to determine which is best for your home: 

Carbon Filters - PROS:

  • Eliminates odors
  • Ability to neutralize harmful gases and VOCs
  • Clears smoke and chemicals out of the air
  • No harsh contaminants are released 

Carbon Filters - CONS:

  • Not the best filter for removing allergens from the air
  • Doesn’t trap microorganisms
  • Only lasts around a month before needing to be replaced
  • More expensive than traditional air filters 

Traditional Filters - PROS:

  • Very effective at removing allergens, pollen, dust, and dander
  • No harsh contaminants are released
  • Can last up to three months before replacement 

Traditional Filters - CONS:
