With the ability to remove 99% of the virus that causes COVID-191 from the air2, Lennox has developed a rooftop unit that can help commercial businesses improve the health of their building. Using a factory-installed combination of MERV 16 filters and UVC Germicidal lamp, the Ultimate IAQ system has been third-party tested to show a 95% single-pass efficiency rate with a 70% virus reduction rate after five minutes and 99% reduction after 30 minutes.
The Ultimate IAQ system uses a variety of technologies to promote better air in commercial spaces. The MERV 16 Filter eliminates 95% of particles down to .3 microns, an industry first for light commercial rooftop units. The factory-installed UVC lights target various viruses, bacteria and mold spores by treating the interior surfaces of the unit. In addition to these purification technologies, the Ultimate IAQ system also uses Humiditrol+ to efficiently remove excessive humidity from interior spaces and maintain year-round comfort for employees and customers.
The Ultimate IAQ system can be equipped to the new Model L RTU from the factory, with field-installed options for other Lennox model RTUs. For more information, visit https://www.lennoxcommercial.com/buildingbetterair.
