Description: Testing by the University of Colorado Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering found that this product inactivates 99% of coronavirus trapped on the filter. Other third-party testing has concluded that it also inactivates 99% of select viruses and bacteria trapped on the filter, such as a common cold virus surrogate Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza. The air purifier works with most HVAC systems produced by both Carrier and other manufacturers and treats the air flowing through an HVAC system’s air handler using a three-step charge, capture, and kill process. The charge phase creates a cloud of electrically charged ions that attach themselves to airborne dust, pollen, viruses, germs, and other particles as they pass through. The capture phase pulls the ionized particle toward an oppositely charged, pleated filter and captures it at an extremely high rate. During the kill phase, captured airborne microbes remain on the pleated filter instead of recirculating back into the home and are subjected to an intense electric field.
