What to Look for in a Whole House Air Purifier

Hey there, home comfort seeker! We know that breathing clean, fresh air inside our homes is something we all want. But sometimes, even when our HVAC systems are working perfectly, those sneaky little airborne particles, like pet dander and pollen, can make our indoors less comfortable, especially for folks with allergies. This is where air purifiers come into play.

What’s an Air Purifier, Anyway?

In simple terms, an air purifier is like a protective guardian for the air in your home. It sifts through the air, capturing unwanted particles and making sure what you breathe is cleaner and healthier.

Different Strokes for Different Folks: Understanding Carrier’s Air Purifier Line

  1. Infinity® Air Purifier (DGAPA)
    • What’s cool about it? This whole-home purifier uses Captures & Kills® technology. Imagine a flytrap but for tiny particles. Once trapped, they get zapped with an electrical charge to inactivate them. Science, right?
  2. Comfort™ EZ Flex Cabinet Air Filter (EZXCAB)
    • The quick rundown? A pocket-friendly way to boost your indoor air quality and the overall efficiency of your HVAC system.
  3. Air Purifier (RMAP-ST) and Air Purifier XL (RMAP-XL)
    • Size matters! These are portable options designed for spaces of 430 and 560 square feet, respectively. They’re super efficient, grabbing over 99% of tiny 0.3-micron particles from the air.
  4. Smart Air Purifier (RMAP-SST) and Smart Air Purifier XL (RMAP-SXL)
    • What makes them “smart”? Aside from being portable for spaces of 430 and 560 square feet, these come with a HEPA filter known for its prowess in trapping particles. We’re talking about capturing a whopping 99.97% of those 0.3-micron baddies.

Breathing Easy with Quality Air

If we likened our indoor air to a big pot of soup, then all the irritants like pet dander and pollen would be the unwanted spices that could ruin its taste. These pesky particles might trigger allergies, making our indoor experience less than perfect. But thanks to whole-home air purifiers, we can ensure that the “soup” remains flavorful.

Filtering Out the Jargon: MERV and Why It Matters

Ever heard of MERV? No, it’s not the name of your next-door neighbor. MERV, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, is a rating that tells us how good an air filter is at its job. Think of it like grades in school. A higher MERV rating means the filter is in the top class, trapping even the tiniest of particles.

The Magic Behind Captures & Kills® Technology

One of the superstar features of some Carrier air purifiers is the Captures & Kills® technology. This nifty feature can trap up to 95% of particles sized between 1.0 to 3.0 microns flowing through the HVAC system. And the real magic? It can inactivate 99% of certain trapped airborne viruses and bacteria, including some strains of coronavirus.

In Conclusion

Choosing the right air purifier isn’t just about cleaner air; it’s about creating a sanctuary where you can breathe easy, relax, and feel at home. With Carrier’s range of air purifiers, you’ve got options tailored to fit your needs, ensuring every breath is a step towards better health and comfort.
