Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) for cleaning the air in your home
PCO is an emerging technique to control indoor air contaminants, including volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). Because we spend the majority of our time indoors, this makes indoor air quality even more important.
What’s in the air you breathe inside your home?
The air in your home is filled with viruses, bacteria, VOC’s, mold spores, chemicals, odors, and micro-fine dust particles.
How can I effectively clean the air in my home?
Carrier Enterprise has developed a leading market product called the Air Knight to specifically target harmful pollutants (eg. viruses, bacteria, VOC’s, mold spores, chemicals, odors, etc.) in the air inside your home and destroy them, making it one of the most effective air purifiers.

What is the Air Knight?
The Air Knight is a whole home solution for air purification and is made in the USA. Air Knight is an active air purifier that actively disinfects the air throughout the entire conditioned space in your home by ridding the air you breathe inside your home of harmful pollutants.
How Does the Air Knight work?
The Air Knight air purifier uses patented technology including high intensity ultra-violet light (UV light), water vapor in your home’s air (humidity), and a quint metallic catalyst to create vaporized hydrogen peroxide and millions of positively and negatively charged ions that are then distributed through your forced air system into the conditioned space in your home.
The vaporized hydrogen peroxides then attack the harmful pollutants in the air rendering them harmless. The vaporized hydrogen peroxides eliminate bacteria, viruses, and mold spores on contact wherever they exist in your home, in the air, and on surfaces like your countertops and doorknobs. After the pollutant is eliminated, harmless water and carbon dioxide molecules form.
The ions and vaporized hydrogen peroxides that are released also neutralize VOC’s and chemicals in the air that can irritate your respiratory system and gets rid of pesky odors, such as pet odors and odors from cooking.
The positively and negatively charged ions that are released into the home’s conditioned space can also help the air purification filters in your home’s central air system work more effectively by attracting oppositely charged microparticles to each other making them larger and easier to trap in your home’s air filtration system.
Is the Air Knight an ozone generator or an O3 machine?
The Air Knight does not inherently use ozone as a method to control indoor air quality. Though, as it uses UV bulbs, it will generate very small amounts of ozone as a byproduct. The way this is effectively controlled is by then breaking down those small amounts of ozone is into hydrogen peroxide and other friendly oxidizers. What trace amounts of ozone remain are well within safe limits as set by the EPA. This means that the Air Knight is not considered an ozone generator.
Will I smell anything?
It is important to know that the Air Knight will be changing all of the air in the conditioned space and the air will be noticeably cleaner and fresher smelling. This clean smell is not ozone, but a friendly oxidizer call Hydro-Peroxide. So you will not only be removing harmful pollutants from your air, but enhancing your overall indoor air quality, scent and all.
About the Air Knight unit itself
