Esquire House: “One of America's healthiest homes”
When Esquire Magazine selects a home each year to outfit with the latest sleek and stylish high performance systems, no amenity is overlooked. That includes the ultimate amenity of perfect air. And that's why Esquire selected the revolutionary IQAir Perfect 16® whole-house air purification system for its Esquire House in Hollywood Hills. “They not only wanted to create a house of breathtaking beauty and dimension, they also wanted to create one of America's healthiest homes with state-of-the-art air purification,” says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir. Esquire chose the Perfect 16 because it exceeds MERV 16 - the highest level of filtration recognized by experts.
IQAir system(s) selected by Esquire House: Perfect 16
Since 2003, Esquire Magazine has chosen a select home or condo per year, usually in LA or NY, and turned it into an Esquire House Signature Space. This year, Esquire selected a contemporary home situated in the infamous "Bird Streets" of the Hollywood Hills and outfitted it from top to bottom with the latest sleek and stylish high performance systems. No amenity was overlooked, including the ultimate amenity of perfect air.
In 2006, and again in 2008, Esquire selected IQAir to provide our revolutionary whole-house air purification system the Perfect 16®. “They not only wanted to create a house of breathtaking beauty and dimension, they also wanted to create one of America's healthiest homes with state-of-the-art air purification”, says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir North America. They chose the Perfect 16 because it exceeds MERV 16 - the highest level of filtration recognized by the American Society of Heating and Refrigeration Engineers (ASHRAE). The result is that the air in the home is virtually free of dust, pollen, allergens, and other indoor air pollutants.
These projects reflect a new trend in custom home design. “While discriminating homeowners have always been very particular about all visual and comfort aspects of their home, they now also want the best healthy home technology” says Hammes.
Breathing pure, clean air is sure to provide a significant plus for the thousands of people that will attend the various charity events scheduled to be held at the breathtaking hilltop home. And soon, a lucky family will be enjoying a spectacular view as well as reaping the numerous benefits clean air will have on their health.
