7 Benefits of an Air Purifier


Carrier’s Infinity Air Purifier offers many important benefits for your family.

7 Benefits of an Air PurifierAn EPA survey found that the average American spends 87 percent of their time indoors, and 69 percent of this time is spent at home. Don’t you want your home environment to be as clean, healthy, and comfortable as possible? Installing an air purifier can help you achieve this.

At General Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer top-quality Carrier brand air purifiers, including the Infinity Air Purifier GAPA. This air purifier uses patented Captures and Kills™ technology to trap up to 95 percent of airborne contaminants down to 0.30 microns in size. Once the particles are trapped, an electrical charge runs across the filter to kill or inactivate 99 percent of any germs, pollen, or mold spores among them. The Infinity Air Purifier GAPA purifies all the air in your home up to 8 times per hour to deliver the following 7 benefits.

Cleaner Air: The first benefit of an air purifier is simply to improve the overall cleanliness of your indoor air by removing contaminants. Considering that the EPA estimates indoor air can be 2 to 5 times dirtier than outdoor air, this is naturally very important.

Healthier Air: Not all air purifiers have germicidal capability. But those that do, such as the Carrier Infinity Air Purifier GAPA, can help keep your family healthy and prevent your HVAC system from spreading germs from one sick person’s room to another. Carrier’s air purifier is proven effective against 13 common pathogens including the common cold, avian flu, measles, and SARS.

No More Odors: By trapping airborne particles, air purifiers help control odors. For example, they can help make your home smell fresher faster after cooking foods with strong odors or smoking tobacco.

Seasonal Allergy Control: If anyone in your family suffers from seasonal allergies, it is extremely important for them to have an environment where they can be safe from the many types of pollens and molds that may trigger their symptoms. An air purifier can deliver this safe and clean environment.

Less Pet Mess: Whether you are allergic to pet dander or simply tired of dealing with tons of hair and persistent pet odors, an air purifier can help.

Slower Dust Buildup: No matter how often you clean, you will always end up with dust in your home. After all, most of the dust you see is actually human skin flakes. However, installing an air purifier can slow the rate of dust accumulation so your home stays cleaner longer.

Longer HVAC Filter Life: One final benefit of adding an air purifier to your HVAC system is that with the air purifier capturing contaminants, your HVAC filters will have less of a burden on them and they should last longer.
