Atmosphere® is the world’s No. 1 selling brand of premium home air treatment systems.* The Atmosphere® Carbon Filter effectively reduces most common household odors.
The Atmosphere® Carbon Filter now uses a higher-efficiency form of carbon that improves formaldehyde reduction from 70% removal to over 90%. The new and improved filter uses less carbon with equal performance and a comparable life span.
The Atmosphere® Air Purifier is backed by these strong certifications:
AHAM – Certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) to the ANSI/AHAM AC-1-2002 CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) test protocol for the removal of airborne tobacco smoke, dust, and pollen. Atmosphere® Air Purifier’s certified CADR is 250, which is equivalent to 7.1 m3 per minute of purified air and a room size of 390 square feet or 36 square meters.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® – Atmosphere® Air Purifier has earned the ENERGY STAR® mark for energy efficiency.

The Clarus® filtration system features an activated carbon filter with a surface area large enough to cover 261 football fields. This abundant filtration capacity, along with an integrated HEPA filter and pre-filter, effectively reduces odors and effectively removes up to 99.99% of airborne pollutant particles that pass through the system. This includes contaminant particles such as pollen, bacteria, dust mites, viruses, smoke, and other impurities as small as .009 microns.
Filter replacement schedule.
If used continuously, the Atmosphere® Carbon Filter should be replaced approximately every four months. If used for eight hours or less per day, the filter may last for approximately one year. An integrated electronic monitor on the Atmosphere® Air Purifier unit provides an alert for filter changes. The Atmosphere® Carbon Filter is not washable or reusable. It is recommended that the Atmosphere® Carbon Filter be replaced every year regardless of usage.
The Atmosphere Replacement Carbon Filter effectively reduces odors from the air caused by smoke, pets, and cooking to leave your home smelling fresh and clean.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I want an air purifier for my home?
Isn’t the air inside my home protected from outside pollution? Studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada show that indoor pollutant levels inside the home may be much higher than outdoor levels. The air inside your home can contain contaminants and particles that include dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, bacteria, virus, dioxin, formaldehyde, and even radon decay byproducts.
How effective is the Atmosphere® Air Purifier in improving the quality of the air in a room?
You can breathe easier knowing that the Atmosphere® Air Purifier effectively removes up to 99.99% of airborne contaminant particles down to sizes as small as .009 microns in a single pass through the system. In the recommended room size of 390 square feet (36 square meters), the Atmosphere® Air Purifier can effectively reduce the particulate concentration by 80% in about 30 minutes. In addition, the Atmosphere® Air Purifier also effectively reduces household odors from cooking, smoke, and pets. The Atmosphere® Air Purifier is also very effective at removing bacteria, viruses, and molds from the air that is drawn into the system. The Atmosphere® Air Purifier can also reduce formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is an irritant that is emitted from some common household furnishings (e.g., carpet, ceiling tile) and products (e.g., wood products). Urea-formaldehyde glues and resins are used in some plywood and pressed board products, and they can slowly emit formaldehyde. The carbon filter contains two catalysts that destroy formaldehyde. The Atmosphere® Air Purifier is also very effective for the reduction of ozone and dioxin.
How large is a micron? Can I see it in the air?
A micron is one-millionth of a meter. The Atmosphere® Air Purifier effectively removes particulates as small as .009 microns, which is about 1,800 times smaller than the sharp end of a pin. A grain of pollen is 30 microns, dust mite byproducts are 10 microns, pet dander is 90 microns, smoke particles are .2 microns, and viruses can be as small as .02 microns. The trained human eye can see only contaminants that are approximately 50 microns in size.
How can I be sure that the Atmosphere® Air Purifier is really effective in removing most of these potential contaminant particles from the air inside a room?
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) has verified the Atmosphere® Air Purifier’s Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) for the removal of airborne smoke, dust, and pollen through independent laboratory testing. CADR is widely accepted as a valid measure for comparing the performance of portable air cleaners. It has been reviewed and referenced by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
How many filters are in the Atmosphere® Air Purifier?
There are three filters featured in the Atmosphere® Air Purifier's Clarus® Filtration System. There is a pre-filter, a HEPA filter, and a carbon filter.
What does the pre-filter in the Atmosphere® Air Purifier do?
The pre-filter is a filter that removes larger particles from the air before they enter the rest of the filtering system. This pre-filter does not need to be replaced and can be cleaned periodically, depending on use.
What is a HEPA filter? What does it do?
HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air. In order to be rated a true HEPA filter, a filter needs to be 99.97% efficient in capturing particles that are 0.3 microns. The Atmosphere® Air Filter exceeds that standard. Competitive air cleaners, without true HEPA filters, don't come close to matching the Atmosphere® Air Purifier's air-purifying effectiveness. The HEPA filter can last from 3 months to 5 years, depending on the amount of particles in the air, the patterns of use, such as speeds, and hours of operation.
What does the carbon filter in my Atmosphere® Air Purifier do?
The Atmosphere® Air Purifier also features an activated carbon filter that has a surface area equal to 226 soccer fields that's an area of just over 17 million square feet. It contains 1,900 grams of activated carbon. The expansive surface area of this carbon filter effectively reduces smoke, cooking, pet, and other household odours, leaving your home smelling clean and fresh. It will last 4 to 12 months depending on the patterns of use such as speeds, and hours of operation.
How do I maintain the filters in my Atmosphere® Air Purifier?
The best method for cleaning the pre-filter is to vacuum it. It may also be rinsed in water, but it should be completely dry when it is returned to the unit. The carbon filter and the HEPA filter need to be replaced periodically, depending on the amount of particles in the air, the patterns of use such as, speeds, and hours of operation.
How often will I need to replace the carbon filter and the HEPA filter?
Depending on use, the HEPA filter can last from 3 months to 5 years, while the carbon filter may last from 4 to 12 months.
How will I know when it's time to replace these filters? Do I need to keep track of hours of usage for each filter?
No. Both the HEPA filter and the carbon filter have electronic indicators that will alert you when it is time to change filters. When the indicators turn from green to amber, you'll know that you have at least two weeks of continuous usage before the indicator turns red, indicating that it is now time to change the filter. If you use the unit for only eight hours a day after the indicator turns amber, you'll have a longer period of time, maybe six weeks, before the filter actually needs to be replaced.
