The Arcoaire air purifier is installed on or near the furnace/air handler of your home comfort system to help capture airborne particles that circulate throughout your home. Capturing these particles keeps the equipment components clean, and more importantly, helps reduce particles from the air you breathe. Because your indoor air is under constant attack, you need an effective defense – the kind you get with the Arcoaire air purifier.
Our Arcoaire air purifier treats the air flowing through your HVAC system’s air handler using a three-step, charge/capture/kill process:
The purifier creates a “cloud” of electrically charged ions that attach themselves to airborne dust, pollen, viruses, germs and other particles as they pass through.
The ionized particles are pulled toward an oppositely charged, pleated MERV 15 rated filter and captured at an extremely high rate, similar to how a magnet attracts metal shavings.1
Captured airborne microbes remain on the pleated filter instead of recirculating back into the home and are subjected to an intense electric field. There, 99% of select viruses and bacteria are inactivated.2

1 MERV is a filter efficiency standard ranging from 1 to 16 (higher MERV = higher efficiency). The Arcoaire air purifier achieves a MERV 15 rating based on third-party testing (2012) showing 95% of particles size 1.0 to 3.0 microns captured and 85% of particles size 0.3 to 1.0 microns captured.
2 The Arcoaire air purifier has demonstrated effectiveness against the murine coronavirus, based on third-party testing (2020) showing a >99% inactivation, which is a virus similar to the human novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19. Therefore, the Arcoaire air purifier can be expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 when used in accordance with its directions for use. Third-party testing (2012, 2007) also shows ≥99% inactivation for the type of virus that causes common colds, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza. Airborne particles must flow through your HVAC system and be trapped by the MERV 15 Arcoaire filter to be inactivated at 99%. Learn How It Works
3 Based on third-party testing (2012) showing 95% of particles size 1.0 to 3.0 microns captured and 85% of particles size 0.3 to 1.0 microns captured.
4 To the original owner, when product is used in an owner-occupied residence, a 10-year parts limited warranty upon timely registration of your new equipment. Warranty period is 5 years if not registered within 90 days. Jurisdictions where warranty benefits cannot be conditioned on registration will automatically receive a 10-year parts limited warranty.
