Following months of testing, Lennox announces product claim to help prevent virus in ongoing commitment to consumers’ health and safety
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.
