Advanced solutions deliver healthy, safe, efficient and productive indoor environments for commercial buildings and more
As people around the world adjust to a new normal, the health of our buildings – and how they influence personal health – is critically important. Today, Carrier introduced its Healthy Buildings Program in Europe, an expanded suite of advanced solutions to help deliver healthy, safe, efficient and productive indoor environments across key verticals including commercial buildings, healthcare, hospitality, education and retail. In support of this, Carrier today also launched an updated website to help customers consult with Carrier’s experts to take advantage of the broad range of industry-leading healthy building technologies. Carrier is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE:CARR), a leading global provider of healthy, safe and sustainable building and cold chain solutions.
“COVID-19 has reinforced the important role that buildings play in helping to ensure and protect public health,” said Didier Genois, Vice President and General Manager, HVAC Europe Air Conditioning. “As people return to work, hotels greet guests, schools welcome back students and stores reopen, indoor air quality and safe buildings are of paramount importance. For the economy to successfully recover, people need to have trust in the safety of the buildings they are entering. New technologies like microscopic filtration systems have gone from nice-to-have conveniences to must-have protections. The Carrier Healthy Buildings Program can help enable healthier and safer indoor environments as we get back to our new normal.”
As a founding member of the International WELL Building Institute, Carrier has long been an industry leader in enhancing building health to promote personal health. Now, it’s essential that the world have the solutions and services that enable healthy environments.
“The company that invented modern air conditioning is uniquely positioned to deliver healthy building expertise,” said Rajan Goel, who leads Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program as the head of Carrier’s Building Solutions Group.
“Through the Healthy Buildings Program, Carrier’s experts will work closely with customers to not only design but operate, maintain and upgrade buildings that protect what’s most important – the health of those inside.”
Carrier’s Healthy Buildings Program will draw from a comprehensive suite of solutions and services designed to help improve indoor air quality (IAQ), increase outside air ventilation. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
