Why Healthy Homes Matter
There’s something in the air inside. In fact, the EPA has recognized that indoor air pollution is a very real problem and
ranked it among the top environmental risks facing the general public.2
Here’s why:

Did you know…?

  • Americans spend an average of 90% of their time indoors where concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than outside air 3
  • With the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place orders, time spent inside is potentially climbing higher as homes have become the replacement for the office, school, gym
  • People who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution – the very young, older adults, and people with cardiovascular or respiratory disease – tend to spend more time indoors 3
  • Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is transmitted through the air 4
  • A home’s layout, design, occupancy and HVAC (heating and cooling) system can impact potential airborne spread of the virus

Why the Carrier Infinity Air Purifier Matters

As part of a strategy for slowing the spread of infectious disease in your home, the Infinity air purifier should be considered essential. Featuring our patented Captures & Kills® technology, the Infinity air purifier offers proven, third-party tested effectiveness with a 99% inactivation of captured viruses and germs when used as instructed,1 including:

  • Coronavirus
  • Common cold surrogate
  • Bacteria that causes strep throat
  • Human influenza

How it Works

Our Infinity air purifier treats the air flowing through your HVAC system’s air handler using a three-step,
charge/capture/kill process:

Charge

The purifier creates a “cloud” of electrically charged ions that attach themselves to airborne dust, pollen, viruses, germs and other particles as they pass through.

Capture

The ionized particles are pulled toward an oppositely charged, pleated MERV 15 rated filter and captured at an extremely high rate, similar to how a magnet attracts metal shavings.7

Kill

Captured airborne microbes remain on the pleated filter instead of recirculating back into the home and are subjected to an intense electric field. There, 99% of select viruses and bacteria are inactivated.1

1 The Infinity® air purifier has demonstrated effectiveness against the murine coronavirus, based on third-party testing (2020)
showing a >99% inactivation, which is a virus similar to the human novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19.
Therefore, the Infinity air purifier can be expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with its
directions for use. Third-party testing (2012, 2007) also shows ≥99% inactivation for the type of virus that causes common
colds, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza. Airborne particles must flow through your HVAC system and be trapped
by the Infinity filter to be inactivated at 99%.

7 MERV is a filter efficiency standard ranging from 1 to 16 (higher MERV = higher efficiency). The Infinity air purifier achieves
a MERV 15 rating based on third-party testing (2012) showing 95% of particles size 1.0 to 3.0 microns captured and 85% of
particles size 0.3 to 1.0 microns captured.
