As we continue to spend more time at home than ever before, it is imperative that we all work together to help ensure that our living and working spaces are healthy. This includes both the air we breathe as well as the comfort of feeling secure in our spaces. Our homes have become the new office, classroom, gym and restaurant, elevating the importance of indoor air quality and home safety in 2020. Now is the time to focus on our homes as a tool for health.

Kidde Combination Smoke & CO Alarm
Ideal for kitchen applications, Kidde’s combination alarm provides smoke and carbon monoxide detection, while helping to reduce nuisance alarms from cooking. A sealed, long-life lithium battery means it’s maintenance-free, hassle-free and worry-free for 10 years.
The Carrier OptiClean negative air machine plugs into a standard electrical outlet to quickly improve indoor air quality. It can operate as an air scrubber, using a 99.97% efficient, long-life HEPA filter to remove contaminants and discharge cleaner air back into the room. It can also, with expert assistance and installation, help convert a normal room into a negative-pressure airborne infectious isolation room by adding a vacuum effect to the HEPA filtration capability.
Room Air Purifiers
When you’re taking steps to create a healthier home for your family, start by improving the quality of your indoor air. We developed our new room air purifier with a high-efficiency filter that captures over 99% of airborne particles 0.3 micron size in diameter – including dust, pet dander, and pollen – to help create cleaner indoor air.
38MPR/40MPH Infinity® Ductless System 42 SEER
The most efficient system of its kind on the market today, Infinity ductless system 42 SEER keeps you comfortable while enabling control right from your smartphone. A relative humidity sensor also allows you to manage humidity and temperature at the same time.
Infinity® Air Purifier
Testing by the University of Colorado Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering found that the Carrier Infinity air purifier with Captures & Kills technology inactivates 99% of coronavirus trapped on the filter. Other third-party testing has concluded that this technology also inactivates 99% of select viruses and bacteria trapped on the filter, such as a common cold virus surrogate, Streptococcus pyogenes and human influenza.
Kidde Escape Ladders
Kidde’s escape ladder stores compactly and deploys easily, offering a quick and safe escape from two- or three-story homes.
38MGR+40MBAA Multi-poise AHU Ductless System
Coming this August, the Carrier Multi-poise AHU ductless system is our first system offering a native ductless air handler that can be part of a full multi-zone system. That means an independent air handler for the main part of your home and then two additional separate systems – one for your basement and one for your garage. It gives you true multi-zone coverage with the flexibility and efficiency and low noise of ductless systems.
Kidde Wire-Free Interconnected Smoke Alarm
Wire-free interconnected smoke alarms from Kidde talk to each other so that when one alarm sounds, they all sound. That way, they work together to offer your entire household enhanced early warning in the event of an emergency – and extra time to escape.
Kidde Kitchen Fire Extinguishers
A one-of-a-kind solution especially for kitchen cooking fires, the Kidde fire extinguisher features a special nozzle that helps to reduce grease splattering, which can ignite nearby spaces.
Infinity® Heat Pump and High Wall indoor unit
This ultra-efficient system is designed to handle extreme temperatures, keeping you comfortable year-round.
Infinity® 26 Air Conditioner
With the Infinity 26 air conditioner from Carrier, you can enjoy enhanced cooling, extra energy efficiency and ultra-quiet comfort where it matters most – in your home.
Infinity® 98 Gas Furnace
The Infinity 98 gas furnace is the most advanced Carrier furnace ever made. Its unique design innovations can operate longer at steadier, lower capacities, which ensures incredible energy efficiency and quiet operation with tighter temperature control than standard furnaces.
Infinity® System Control
As part of a complete, communicating Infinity System, this smart control takes full advantage of the best technology Carrier has to offer, including Greenspeed® technology and Hybrid Heat® system management. The Infinity System Control can manage humidity levels, airflow, ventilation, indoor air quality and up to eight zones, from wherever you are, with a connected smartphone or tablet.
Infinity® Geothermal Heat Pump
Available as forced-air or water-to-air systems, Infinity geothermal heat pumps offer the quiet, comfortable benefits of two-stage and variable speed operation. These include the versatile programming, energy tracking and wireless capabilities of Infinity Touch, and the superior energy savings of geothermal.
Kidde Carbon Monoxide Alarm
As the one of the longest-running makers of carbon monoxide alarms, Kidde offers trusted solutions that can protect your family from a hazard you can't see. Install one on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas to enjoy a whole new level of peace of mind.
Carrier® Whole-Home Ventilators
Carrier® Whole-Home Ventilators offer a controlled solution for bringing fresh outdoor air into the home. They’re efficient because they ventilate without the energy loss one would experience through an open window or screen door. Whole-home ventilation is more important than ever with today’s more tightly sealed, energy-efficient homes that tend to trap airborne pollutants to circulate throughout the home.
Performance™ Series Whole-Home Dehumidifiers
Performance™ Series Whole-Home Dehumidifiers work quietly to wring out humidity from the air so homeowners can save on utilities and be comfortable. They're designed to be configurable with the home’s existing system in a multitude of ways or operate independently away from the system if space is a problem.
Performance™ Germicidal Ultraviolet (UV) Lamps
Performance™ Germicidal Ultraviolet (UV) Lamps are designed to kill the mold and bacteria that can grow in the moist environment of the indoor coils to help keep the system efficient and clean air flowing.
Carrier® Humidifiers can “moisturize” dry, heated, winter air, making a home feel more comfortable. Properly humidified air can help relieve the discomfort of dry nasal passages, itchy skin and static shocks.
Supra Remote eKEY Activation
Supra® eKEY® technology, which can unlock a real estate keybox on a home for sale simply and securely using the agent’s phone, enables agents to enter properties with minimal contact to conduct showings. Real estate agents can download the eKEY app and receive necessary authorization without going into their real estate organization’s office.
Supra Remote Keybox Programming
Real estate agents using a compatible Supra keybox no longer need to drive to a listing or to a real estate organization’s office to change keybox settings. Real estate organizations can remotely change several keybox settings, including shackle codes, call before showing codes, keybox feedback flags and more – all from the internet. The next eKEY to access the keybox delivers these new settings seamlessly.
