Healthy homes start here
People spend nearly two-thirds of our lives at home. Knowing the power that home environments can have as tools for human health, wellness, safety and security, we created our Healthy Homes Program.
The program includes a suite of targeted solutions that can help improve the overall health and safety of homes and the people inside. From HVAC that improves comfort and indoor air quality to fire safety products that help save lives, our businesses continue to introduce innovations that give people greater awareness and control of their home’s health. We also work every day to educate consumers on the importance of creating healthy home environments.
See how Carrier solutions – from HVAC units with advanced filtration to smoke and carbon monoxide alarms – help create safe, comfortable and healthy homes.
Explore how Carrier brings the expertise, solutions and resources to help ensure healthier, safer home environments for people everywhere.
Everyone deserves a healthy, safe home
There are currently more than 6 million substandard housing units nationwide, and a great deal of emerging scientific evidence links safety risks and health outcomes such as asthma and lead poisoning to the conditions in these homes.
Black Americans are nearly twice as likely to lose their life in a house fire versus other groups.
Indoor air quality
Asthma is a leading chronic disease in children. Currently, there are about 6 million children under the age of 18 with asthma.
Creating healthier housing promotes the healthy growth and development of children and has the potential to save billions in healthcare costs.
With this in mind, Carrier is committed to educating on the importance of healthy home environments and supporting efforts to make them more accessible to all.
Habitat for Humanity
Our company has provided local Habitat for Humanity organizations with financial support, product donations from our Healthy Homes suite of indoor air quality solutions and countless employee volunteer hours. In 2021, Carrier made a $250,000 donation to Habitat’s Home is the Key campaign to help families build safe, affordable homes.
