Indoor Air Quality
Healthy Climate® PureAir™ Air Purification System
Fifteen years of continuous design and development have long set the Healthy Climate® PureAir™ apart as an industry-leading solution to the removal of multiple indoor air contaminants. Now the third generation design has been honored as being not only great for homeowners but great for dealers too. It boasts dramatic improvements, including faster response to VOCs, better ozone removal, increased energy efficiency, slimmer cabinet size, reduced air leakage, and lower operating and maintenance costs.
The Healthy Climate® PureAir™ comes in three different sizes for different flow applications and can be used with almost any ducted system. The included Carbon Clean 16® filter and PCO cartridge require only once-a-year replacement with no cleaning. This replacement cycle can be used to upsell a service-maintenance agreement, and the replacement itself is easily accomplished without any need for tools.
