Carrier Corp.: MERV 13 Air Purifier
December 10, 2012
Nearly one-half the width of existing air purifiers, the Performance™ Series air purifier provides cleaner, healthier indoor air, claimed the company. Based on the Infinity® air purifier platform with Captures & Kills™ technology, the air purifier has a narrow cabinet of 7¼ inches (18 cm) wide and an air filter 2½ inches (6.4 cm) wide. According to the manufacturer, 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. It has a MERV of 13. It effectively removes bacteria, pollen, animal dander, and other pollutants as small as 0.3 microns. 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 is also easy to maintain with a disposable, long-life filter. Features include five sizes 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.
