Healthy Climate® Indoor Air Quality Solutions
The Healthy Climate collection from Lennox is a complete line of products designed for every need, and every home. In total, Lennox offers products in five categories of indoor air quality. Air purification systems are attached to the furnace or air handler, where contaminants are removed and destroyed before air is recirculated into the home.
PureAir™ Air Purification System. Cleans the air in your home better than any single system you can buy. The PureAir™ system improves air quality throughout your home. When it comes to air quality, the saying “what you can’t see can hurt you” is never more appropriate.
Dust. Chemicals. Mold. Mildew. Bacteria. Viruses. Pet dander. These tiny particles are all very common in homes and they can cause problems that can inhibit the simple joys of life like spending time with loved ones. That’s why Lennox has developed the innovative PureAir air purification system. It is the only single system to attack all three classes of contaminants. You can breathe easier knowing that the harm you can’t see is virtually eliminated—leaving you with cleaner and healthier air.
Unmatched purification and filtration. Many technologies available today only combat one or two classes of air contaminants. The PureAir air purification system is designed to combat all three for comprehensive air purification!
– Particles (any substances measuring less than 100 microns* in diameter) Removes more than 95% of particles down to 0.3 micron, including dust, pollen and pet dander.
– Bioaerosols and Microorganisms (microscopic living organisms that grow and reproduce in warm, humid places) Removes more than 90% of bioaerosols down to 0.01 micron, including viruses, dust mites, bacteria, mold spores and fungi.
– Odors/Chemical Vapors (air contaminants in the form of gases) Destroys volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odors from sources like cleaning supplies, solvents used in carpeting or furniture, paints, cooking smells and pet odors.

PureAir™ Air Purification System Cleans the air in your home better than any single system you can buy.
From allergies to asthma to the common cold, a PureAir air purification system can provide needed relief. It helps reduce dust, pet dander and odors, you’ll notice a difference in your everyday comfort. In addition, harmful ground-level ozone is reduced and the PureAir system will not produce any ozone as a by-product like other air purification products on the market today. How refreshing!
Exclusive technologies to make air refreshingly cleaner. Industry-leading technology The PureAir™ air purification system reduces concentrations of pollutants through a combination of hospital-grade filtration and a process called photo-catalytic oxidation.
PureAir technology involves three steps:
1. The Precision Pleat™ MERV 16 filter captures particles and bio-aerosols as small as 0.01 micron, removing them from the airstream—contaminants that standard filtration systems simply can’t stop.
2. As the odor- and chemical-vapor-filled airstream flows over the UVA lamps†, the airstream is exposed to the catalytic surface (titanium-dioxide-coated metal insert).
3. The light energy and catalyst work together to break down odors and chemical vapors into harmless carbon dioxide and water.
Air pollution inside your home? It’s true. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside the average home is up to five times, and occasionally one hundred times, more polluted than the air outside.
A brand that delivers beyond basic comfort. Lennox has always been a leading global name in home comfort. Today, they’re pushing beyond the traditional parameters of comfort with exclusive technologies that help create healthier and cleaner home environments.

The MERV rating indicates the percentage of particles the filter will remove from the air passing through it. A MERV rating of 6 indicates that the filter will capture up to half of the particles in the air; a filter with a rating of 8 will trap 70 to 85 percent of air-born particles it encounters; and a rating of 11 or higher means that the air passing through the filter is up to 95 percent cleaner when it comes out of the filter than it was when it went into it.
A properly sized, installed and functioning heating and air conditioning system circulates the air in your home every hour. In the process, it pulls that air through the filter. Just how much the filter cleans the air depends on the MERV rating of the filter.
MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. MERV ratings indicate the size of particles that a filter can remove from the air passing through it. MERVs range from 1 to 16, with a higher number indicating a higher cleaning efficiency because it can filter smaller particles out of the air. The cheap, 1-inch thick, disposable filters made of jumbled fiberglass or natural fiber strands typically have a MERV rating of 1 but can go up to 4.
