My Carrier unit is 6 months old. Just had service out for it's check up (clean, check pressures etc.) All is well.
Prior to leaving the service tech recommended I have 2 items installed. One is an Oxyquantum purifier which uses 2 UV bulbs which extend into the ductwork.
The other is a Kickstart.
He claims the Oxyquantum is a good thing to have in addition to filtration.
He further claims the Kickstart will prolong the life of my compressor.
I have researched both. Lights do not dim at startup and unit starts easily. Is the Kicikstart needed? If so looks like a simple DIY install. Not expensive if I buy on line and self install.
The Oxyquantum is very expensive! Actually I tried to find it online to see price and to see if I can DIY that as well. I cannot find it anywhere for purchase by homeowner.
Thoughts on these 2 items are welcome.
Are these just add ons that the service tech makes commission on or are they needed? If needed why not installed when unit was installed?
