Carrier Air Purifiers
Have our team install a Carrier air purifier
It has been more than a year-and-a-half since the COVID-19 pandemic first arrived in the United States. There is currently no end in sight to the virus or its impact on our day-to-day lives. With the arrival of the Delta variant earlier this summer, it has become clear to just about everyone that the coronavirus is something we’ll all have to live with for the foreseeable future.
As we all continue to practice safe social distancing in public spaces, it’s all too easy to forget about one indoor place where the virus can easily spread: your home. All it takes is a single member of your family to come home sick for everyone under your roof to be at risk of infection.
Fortunately, there is something you can do to protect your home. By installing an air purification system designed to combat COVID-19, you can greatly reduce the risk of person-to-person infection indoors. We’re all spending a lot of time at home during this pandemic. Make sure yours is a place of safety and sanctuary—and not just another place where the virus can spread.
Why purify the air in your home?
In the months since the pandemic truly went global, scientists have come to understand much more about it and how the most dominant strains of it spread. Unlike some viruses and bacteria which rely on physical contact (such as touching an infected door handle, for instance), COVID-19 mainly spreads person-to-person through the air. It is especially virulent when an infected person is coughing or sneezing.
To better illustrate this, let’s look at a specific scenario. The Smiths are a family with two parents and two teenage children. Both teenagers attend in-person school, while one of them works a part-time job at a restaurant. Of the parents, one of them is an elementary school teacher, while the other works at home, but occasionally is asked to fly for business. The Smiths have a lot of potential exposure to COVID-19. It only takes one of them to become infected and come home for all to potentially be exposed.
One week, Susan—the elementary school teacher—comes home not feeling very well. She recently hosted several parent-teacher conferences, and may have been exposed there. With every cough and sneeze indoors, she’s expelling the virus into the air. Soon, her husband also isn’t feeling well. COVID-19 is spreading through the air in their home.
This is where an air purification system can help. Whole-home air purification is perfect for dealing with COVID-19. Here’s how these systems work: as air is pulled up into your HVAC system, it’s forced through a purifier that contains a high-grade filter. The virus is physically caught in this filter, where it is deactivated or killed. The air passing through is purified of any viruses and bacteria before being pushed back into your home.
What filter is right for your home?
Comparing air purifiers? Don’t just go with any product. One of the side-effects of COVID going global is that a number of manufacturers have begun making air filters and purifiers. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re good, or even effective at all. There’s science and testing behind effective purification. Many of the products you see online for cheap just didn’t do their homework. That means you’re putting your faith in a product that may or may not do what it’s supposed to.
Fortunately, there’s a better option. Have our experts at King install a Carrier Infinity® Air Purifier in your home. This is high-grade air purification, brought to you by one of the world’s most-trusted and established HVAC manufacturers. Carrier’s involvement in air purification goes back decades, which means their top-of-the-line systems are backed by years of research and testing.
What makes this system different? It features a specially designed MERV 15 filter that traps viruses and germs better than most. MERV, or “Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value,” measures how effective a filter is on a scale from 1-16. The higher the MERV, the fewer particles can pass through. With a MERV 15 filter, the Carrier Infinity® Air Purifier is able to capture 99% of airborne germs and viruses. Once caught, these contaminants are subjected to an electrical field that deactivates or kills them, rendering them harmless.
What are the other benefits of installing an air purifier?
For obvious reasons, interest in air purifiers has spiked since the start of the pandemic. However, we’ve been installing high-quality Carrier air purification systems for years. That’s because purifying the air in your home means more than just stopping COVID-19. An air purifier kills all types of viruses and bacteria. You can count on your whole-home system to protect you from a vast majority of germs, from the seasonal flu to the common cold.
Your air purifier can even play a role in making your home smell cleaner. Many foul odors actually come from airborne bacteria. As this air is pulled into the purifier, this bacteria is captured and killed. The air that comes out smells fresh—it’s a noticeable difference. As this air circulation continues, the air in your home is repeatedly purified.
