Ordinary HEPA filters
can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.
technology filters the
smallest airborne particles
of all airborne
Viruses: 0.005 – 0.3 microns
Like bacteria, viruses are organisms that spread airborne diseases as mild as the common cold and as serious as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) through coughs, sneezes and improperly maintained ventilation systems.
Tobacco Smoke: 0.01 – 1 micron
Sidestream smoke has higher concentrations of cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than mainstream smoke. And, it has smaller particles than mainstream smoke, which make their way into the lungs and the body's cells more easily.
Soot: 0.01 – 0.3 microns
Long-term exposure to urban air pollution containing soot increases the risk of coronary heart disease, according to a major study published in New England Journal of Medicine in 2007.

Pet Dander: 0.1 – 25 microns
Pet dander is the old skin and fur that pets shed. Animal dander is very small and can become attached to your clothingeven if you do not own a pet. Dander can be found everywhere: floors, carpets, walls, furniture, bedding, even the ceilings. Pet dander is a known asthma and allergy trigger.
Dust Mites Allergens: 0.2 – 25 microns
House dust mites are considered to be the most common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms worldwide. Dust mites themselves do not cause an allergic reaction, however, their dung-pellets are an irritant to sensitive people and can cause breathing difficulties. They thrive in warm, humid, dark conditions such as mattresses, carpets, sheets, pillows, and upholstery.
Bacteria: 0.5 – 10 microns
People spread bacteria through the air when they cough and sneeze, transmitting respiratory diseases and triggering symptoms in asthma sufferers. Bacteria can also grow inside poorly maintained ventilation systems, which spread it into the circulating air.
Household Dust: 1 – 100 micron
Dust may worsen hay fever. Circulating outdoor air through a house by keeping doors and windows open, or at least slightly ajar, may reduce the risk of hay fever-causing dust. In colder climates, occupants seal even the smallest air gaps, and eliminate outside fresh air circulating inside the house. So it is essential to manage dust and airflow.
of all airborne
Mold Spores: 8 – 80 microns
Mold and fungus are commonly found in most homes and may be found in the air ducts of your heating/cooling system. They tend to float throughout the house, and form new colonies where they land. Fungus spores have been known to increase the chances of developing asthma.
Pollen: 10 – 100 microns
One of the most common allergens is pollen. It affects the nose, eyes, and mouth making it difficult to breathe. Most pollen that produces allergic reactions is from trees, grasses, and weeds.

Goes far beyond the ordinary
These features give you cleaner air and more control.
The efficiency stated for most air cleaners is purely theoretical. Internal leakage drastically reduces the actual efficiency of most air cleaners. IQAir systems feature patented triple sealing technology. First, a unique manufacturing process ensures that the filter media is 100 percent sealed in the filter frame. Second, our patented 3D UltraSeal™ ensures perfect knife-edge-in-groove sealing between filter frame and housing. Third, individual seals on each housing module ensure an airtight housing. As a result, IQAir systems have a total system efficiency that is higher than the theoretical efficiency of conventional air cleaners.
New Edition fan
The New Edition features the most powerful fan ever used in a residential room air purifier. That power translates into even better air cleaning results. The new three-dimensionally optimized design now uses state-of-the-art aerodynamics to convert energy into more air and less noise. IQAir systems use the highest quality fan motor available. This fan has an astonishing 780 cfm (1325 m³/h) rating at 2750 rpm. Because each fan is individually balanced and uses steel ball bearings, it outlasts other fans by years. The IQAir New Edition fan is suspended in a housing unit that isolates the fan from the housing with eight shock absorbers to further reduce noise.
The IQAir HealthPro Series features HyperHEPA filtration technology for superior airborne particle removal. IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration is tested and certified by an independent third-party lab to effectively filter harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and 10 times smaller than a virus. In addition, to ensure that every IQAir HealthPro air purifier is actually delivering superior air quality, each and every system is individually tested at the factory with an electronic particle counter and is certified to filter a minimum of 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger.
A sleek and efficient handheld remote control makes it easy to manage your HealthPro Series air purifier from almost anywhere in the room. You can set the fan speed and even timer controls without getting up. When it's not in use the remote control fits handily in the recesses on the top of the system, so you can easily find it when you need it.
Every IQAir room air purifier features six fan speeds and its streamlined system controls allow you to easily program automatic operation via a day/night timer. This allows you to cut energy costs and extend filter life by using your HealthPro Series air purifier to clean the air exactly as you need it when you need it. Also, the included intelligent filter-life monitor precisely forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage and color-coded lights tell you when it's time to change each filter. Relax and let the system work for you.
The built-in guiding handle on top and sturdy casters on the bottom of the HealthPro Series make it simple to roll around the room or house, providing high-performance air purification wherever you need it. When it's not needed, it's a breeze to roll your HealthPro Series into a closet or other handy storage area.
Our patented V5-Cell™ filtration provides the best solution for gas and odor elimination. In order to remove gaseous pollutants, you need the right combination of media. Our system combines two types of media: one that adsorbs odors and gases and another that changes the pollutant to an oxidized form. The outcome is air that is as clean as it smells.
