Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the quality of the air within a building or structure, including homes and commercial spaces. IAQ also defines how the air in a building relates to the comfort and health of the occupants. Some indoor health concerns, which can be experienced soon after exposure or as long as several years later, can be traced back to the air quality of a building.

Poor indoor air quality can lead to asthma attacks, skin allergies, respiratory problems, eye irritation and many other health concerns, some of which can be deadly over time.

Indoor Air Pollution

According to some studies, the indoor air in many homes is far more polluted than the air outside them. There are several common indoor air pollutants that can lead to poor IAQ. Some of these pollutants are:

  • Tobacco products such as cigarettes and cigars; nicotine-based electronic cigarettes and vapes are also pollutants

  • Asbestos, which can be found in many old buildings and houses, as well as old insulation

  • Household maintenance and cleaning products, including bug sprays and air fresheners

  • Personal care products

  • Excess moisture or high humidity

  • New floors, carpets, rugs and upholstery

  • HVAC systems and humidification equipment

  • Fuel-burning appliances such as stoves

Outdoor sources that may release pollutants into a home include radon, pesticides and exhaust fumes.

Carrier Infinity® Air Purifier

To remove indoor air impurities in homes and offices, Carrier has introduced the Infinity Air Purifier, which just might be the right air purifying solution for you.

The Infinity Air Purifier uses a MERV 15 air filter. MERV is an efficiency standard for air filters. MERV filters can be rated from 1 to 16, with 16 being the highest in filtration efficiency. The Infinity Air Purifier’s MERV 15 filter was rated by third-party testing. This means your family is safe from airborne particles 0.3-1.0 microns (up to 75% efficiency) and 1.0-3.0 microns (up to 90% or greater efficiency).

What sets the Infinity Air Purifier apart from other whole-home air purifying systems, however, is Carrier’s patented Captures & Kills® technology. This inactivates viruses and germs captured by the filter with an efficiency rate of 99%, including:

  • Human influenza

  • Common cold surrogate

  • Strep throat-causing bacteria

  • Coronavirus

At these times, it pays to be more conscious of safety, especially when at home with your family. Talk to us about Carrier’s Infinity Air Purifier and how it can make a difference in your home.
