The Carrier electronic air cleaner can be used to collect dust, but is ineffective for the removal of Danger Level 2 or Danger Level 3 triggers. You would need to add ultraviolet lights and carbon to this system to match the performance of the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit.
The Carrier electronic air cleaner provides no specifications for its efficiency. Most electronic air cleaners are very efficient, but suffer from the need for frequent cleaning to retain their efficiency. The Carrier electronic air cleaner is no exception, needing to be cleaned every two months for most applications.
According to the owners manual, the Carrier electronic air cleaner does produce ozone and, as with all electrostatic precipitators, ozone production increases as the cells load with contaminants. Read here about the EPA and ozone.
The cost for the Carrier electronic air cleaner plus the cost of a licensed contractor to modify your duct work to have it installed, can easily exceed the cost of purchasing the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit.
Your purchase includes the Electro Breeze
air cleaner panel in your size, a UV germicidal lamp, mounting plate
assembly, monitor and five replacement pads. Change your first pad
after one month of use, then change out every 2-4 months, thereafter.
Electro Breeze DMUV kit $645.00 (less than 24x24 or 570 sq in)
Electro Breeze DMUV kit (Oversize) $665.00 (24x24 or larger than 570 sq in)
