Carrier, Syracuse, NY, has introduced two new portable air cleaners “that are designed to maximize homeowner comfort and convenience while addressing indoor air quality concerns.”

CarriAir HEPA and smoker-type units weigh between 15 and 23 lbs, making them easily portable. Impurities are drawn in and filtered before return air is vented out the top, rather than at the floor, where it can become recontaminated. The HEPA filters are rated at 99.97% efficiency, and can rid a home of dust, lint, pollen, and other pollutants and allergens.

The 110-cubic feet per minute (cfm) model is designed for use in rooms up to 150 sq ft and provides a Clean Air Delivery Rating of 100, while the 220 cfm unit delivers a CADR rating of 197.

The CarriAir smoker-type air cleaner is also available in two sizes and is specifically designed to remove cigarette smoke and other odors with activated carbon filtration. For more information visit the company’s website at or phone 800-227-7437.
