Other precautions we are taking

In Fall 2020, Kerrytown Concert House underwent a HVAC filtration upgrade with the help of Lakeside Service Company, including the installation of a Nu Calgon iWave Air Purifier, a Carrier Infinity Air Purifier, and a Carrier Energy Recovery Ventilator.

About the iWave: When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without any harmful byproducts. Based on preliminary research, 99.4% of detected airborne COVID-19 was inactivated within 30 minutes with iWave. Learn more here.

About the Carrier Infinity Air Purifier: Featuring Carrier’s patented Captures & Kills® technology, the Infinity air purifier treats the air flowing through the MERV 15 filter and offers proven, third-party tested effectiveness with a 99% inactivation of select captured viruses and germs when used as instructed, including coronavirus, common cold, bacteria that causes strep throat, and influenza.

About the Carrier Performance ERV: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERVs) are designed to minimize energy loss while bringing fresh air into the building and exiting stale air year-round. Our system allows for complete exchange of all the air in the performance space once every half-hour. Learn more here.
