Lennox Industries’ Air Purification Systems with the Carbon Clean 16 Air Filter Remove Over 99% of the Virus that Causes COVID-19
Today, Lennox Industries announced its PureAir™ and PureAir™ S Air Purification Systems, with the Lennox Healthy Climate™ Carbon Clean 16® air filter, remove over 99% of the virus that causes COVID-191 from the air2. After months of rigorous testing at a highly reputed, independent laboratory, this announcement is further evidence of Lennox’ relentless commitment to delivering unmatched, whole-home air purification for perfect air.
Lennox’ residential air filtration systems are hospital-grade3 air filtration systems that remove over 99% of virus particles, including the common cold, influenza and viruses 4x smaller than SARS-CoV-2. They are even more efficient – 99.9% to be precise – at removing larger particles, like mold spores, pollen, dust and pet dander. Unlike other air purification systems, the PureAir™ and PureAir™ S systems produce no ozone, a common lung irritant. Better still, they actively work to reduce ozone generated by other sources in your home.
“This year, more than ever, we all recognize the critical importance of clean air and how it is vital to our health,” said Quan Nguyen, Vice President and General Manager, Lennox Industries Residential. “At Lennox, we have long pursued the highest level of indoor air quality on behalf of our customers. During this pandemic, we’ve increased our investments in air purification technologies in our pursuit of perfect air, so consumers can breathe easy.”
The Lennox Healthy Climate™ Carbon Clean 16® air filter was tested by LMS Technologies, Inc., an independent filtration research and testing lab that has been used by Lennox for over two decades. The lab performs unbiased, controlled testing with standardized test procedures to ensure statistically verified results.
When paired with the PureAir™ S Air Purification System or the Lennox Healthy Climate™ Carbon Clean 16® air filter, a Lennox HVAC system provides unrivaled air filtration and the ultimate level of indoor air quality to ensure the health and safety of homeowners and their families. Part of Lennox’ Ultimate Comfort System™, the PureAir™ S air purifier offers seamless precision in air quality and intelligently works with other units in the Ultimate Comfort System™ to stay finely tuned to the home for reliably clean air.
“We understand that indoor air quality is a higher priority now more than ever before,” said John Whinery, VP of Product, Lennox Industries. “While COVID-19 has changed the world around us, it hasn’t changed our unwavering commitment to delivering consistently clean, comfortable air to homeowners through our Lennox Healthy Climate™ and Ultimate Comfort System™ indoor air quality products.”
