SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
INTRODUCTION
HOW IT WORKS
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.
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.
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
unit. Consult local building codes and National Electrical Code
(NEC) for special requirements.
In stage one, the particles are electrically charged by a
precision--point ionization array as they enter the Infinityt Air
Purifier.
It is important to recognize safety information. This is the
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 Infinity t Air Purifier is a
cornerstone of Carrier’s Healthy Home Solutions for providing
healthier, cleaner air in your home.
safety--alert symbol
. When you see this symbol on the unit
and in instructions or manuals, be alert to the potential for
personal injury. Understand the signal words DANGER,
WARNING, and CAUTION. These words are used with the
safety--alert symbol. DANGER identifies the most serious
hazards which will result in severe personal injury or death.
WARNING signifies hazards which could result in personal
injury or death. CAUTION is used to identify unsafe practices
which may result in personal injury or product and property
damage. NOTE is used to highlight suggestions which will
result in enhanced installation, reliability, or operation.
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.

APPLICATION CONSIDERATIONS
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.
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.
Turning Vanes
Air Conditioning
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.
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.
Electrical Power
The Infinity t 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.
GAPA
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 Infinity t 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.
