We are getting this question a lot. Fortunately, the answer is yes!
According to the EPA, Americans spend an average of 90% of their time indoors. This can be a problem as pollutants are often 2-5 times higher indoors than outdoors. While indoor air quality is always important, this year has made it especially so. With Covid-19 cases on the rise, and our cold months just ahead, it is important to make sure your air is as clean as possible.
What can you do at home?
Just recently, Carrier® introduced the Infinity® Air Purifier. This purifier filters out 95% of pollutants and 99% of viruses and bacteria, including Covid-19 and contains a MERV 15 air filter. What does the MERV rating mean? MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and rates on a scale of one to 20, depending on the minimum size of particles the filter can be expected to capture. MERV 15 captures particles greater than one micrometer which includes most dust and pollutants. This level of filter is used in hospital laboratories so you can feel confident the indoor air quality in your home is clean with this purifier!
There are steps we can all take to help stay safe during this time. Making sure the air you and your loved ones are breathing is clean is one of those steps. Continuing to practice good hygiene, maintain social distancing, wipe down frequently touched services and staying home if you experience any cold or flu like symptoms continue to be important. We can help each other stay safe by following these precautions.
