INTRODUCTION
Congratulations for selecting the Infinityt Air Purifier for your
home comfort system! The Infinityt Air Purifier is proven to
remove and kill airborne germs and allergens, including viruses,
bacteria, and mold spores. The Infinityt Air Purifier is a
cornerstone of Carrier’s Healthy Home Solutions for providing
healthier, cleaner air in your home.
HOW IT WORKS
The Infinityt Air Purifier provides extremely high filtration
performance while killing captured contaminants, including
viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. The Infinityt Air Purifier
treats the entire air--stream through a state of the art, three--stage
process, exclusive to Carrier.
In stage one, the particles are electrically charged by a
precision--point ionization array as they enter the Infinityt Air
Purifier.
In stage two, the charged particles are electrically attracted to the
air purification cartridge, which is located within an electric field.
In stage three, captured particles are killed by electrical current
flow and ion bombardment.
The Infinityt Air Purifier is CSA certified for shock and
electrical fire hazard only.
La Infinityt Air Purifier certification CSA vise uniquement les
risques de choc electrique et.

Improper
installation,
adjustment,
alteration,
service,
maintenance, or use can cause explosion, fire, electrical shock or
other conditions which may cause personal injury or property
damage. Consult a qualified installer, service agency, or your
distributor or branch for information or assistance. The qualified
installer or agency must use factory authorized kits or accessories
when modifying this product. Refer to the individual instructions
packaged with the kits or accessories when installing.
Follow all safety codes. Wear safety glasses and work gloves.
Have fire extinguisher available.
Read these instructions
thoroughly and follow all warning or cautions attached to the

GAPAA
APPLICATION CONSIDERATIONS
The Infinityt Air Purifier is designed for use in the return air
duct of a forced air heating, cooling, and ventilation system.
Models GAPAAXCC1625 and GAPAAXCC2025 are specifically
designed for use in systems with a forced air gas furnace.
Air Conditioning
The Infinityt Air Purifier should be installed in a system so that
all the return air is circulated through the air purifier. It should be
located upstream of both the furnace and the air conditioning
evaporator coil. This will help keep the furnace and evaporator
coil clean and prevent condensation from forming within the
Infinityt Air Purifier.
Humidifiers
An evaporative humidifier can be mounted upstream of the
Infinityt Air Purifier. It is best to install atomizing humidifiers
downstream of the air purifier because hard water salt deposits
and water droplets may damage air purifier. If an atomizing
humidifier must be mounted upstream of the Infinityt Air
Purifier, it should be mounted as far upstream as possible (at least
6 ft. recommended), and a standard disposable furnace filter
should be mounted between the humidifier and the air purifier to
trap hard water salt deposits and water droplets.
Door (x1)
Transitions
If the return air duct or furnace openings do not fit the Infinityt
Air Purifier cabinet openings, gradual transitions are
recommended to reduce air turbulence and maximize efficiency.
No more than 20 degrees (about 4 in. per running ft.) of
expansion should be used on each side of the transition fitting.
Turning Vanes
If the Infinityt Air Purifier is installed adjacent to a 90 degree
duct elbow, turning vanes should be added inside duct to improve
air distribution across the face of the air purifier.
Electrical Power
The Infinityt Air Purifier should only be powered when airflow
is present. The furnace control EAC terminals provide power
only when the furnace blower is operating. Infinityt Air Purifier
models GAPAAXCC1625 and GAPAAXCC2025 are designed to
be powered from the electronic air cleaner (EAC) terminals on a
furnace electronic control. If EAC terminals are not available, an
alternative airflow sensing mechanism must be used to ensure the
Infinityt Air Purifier is only powered when airflow is present.
Contact local Carrier distributor for information on approved
alternatives.
