Carrier Introduces Compact Performance Air Purifier
Originally published: 08.28.12 by HVACR Business Staff
Carrier recently introduced a more compact version of its Performance series air purifier, according to a press release from the company. Nearly half the width of existing air purifiers and comparable in price to traditional electronic air cleaners on the market, the Performance series air purifier provides cleaner, healthier indoor air, the company said.
The Performance air purifier is significantly smaller in size, with a narrow cabinet of only 7 ¼ inches (18 cm) wide and an air filter only 2 ½ inches (6.4 cm) wide.
“According to the National Home Builders Association, there is a growing trend toward building homes with less square footage,” said John Gibbons, director of residential product marketing, Carrier. “As a result, Carrier is developing smaller heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) products to fit into tighter spaces. The more compact size of the Performance air purifier makes it an ideal healthy air solution for homes that may have the HVAC system in a closet or attic.”
The Performance air purifier has a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) of 13. It effectively removes bacteria, pollen, animal dander and other pollutants as small as 0.3 microns – that's 5,000 times smaller than the head of a pin, the company offered for comparison.
This high air filtration efficiency rating is combined with a patented germicidal technology that inactivates 96 percent of captured airborne bacteria, viruses and mold to significantly improve the quality of air in a home. The Performance air purifier works on influenza and common cold viruses, reducing the risk of disease in a home.
Easy maintainenance is due to a disposable, long-life filter. Dealers will appreciate the installation flexibility of this multi-positional air purifier, with five sizes to fit any application, and a dual-voltage power supply, including electrical connections in the back of the unit. A status and troubleshooting light on the front of the unit complemented by the front access door makes diagnostics, filter changes, and service faster and easier.
