GC™ MultiGas

Protection on all levels.

Designed to stop the full range of pollutants.

Protection on all levels.

 

320-Degree air exhaust

Most air cleaners return filtered air into the room through a small, noisy outlet. The IQAir GC MultiGas was designed with 320-degree air delivery to supply more air in more directions without drafts or noise. Other systems create annoying air drafts and restrict the ability of the system to produce fresh, clean air that can fill the room when you need it. The IQAir GC MultiGas boosts system efficiency by evenly returning cleaned air through a large 320-degree EvenFlow™ vented diffuser. And the wide dispersion pattern allows the GC MultiGas to produce an astounding air delivery rate with very little noise.

The purest air possible

The IQAir GC MultiGas air purifier is designed to clean the full spectrum of airborne pollutants with the very best filtration technology available at each of four stages. Air is drawn into the GC MultiGas through the bottom of the system by a powerful IQAir fan, then sequentially cleaned in a step-by-step process that delivers the purest air possible. In addition, IQAir's unique no-leakage design prevents air from escaping back into the room without being drawn through the GC MultiGas filters. The four filtration stages include:

  1. Micro- and nano-particle filtration: The first stage of filtration features a powerful HyperHEPA® pre-filter that eliminates micro- and nano-particles such as allergens, smoke, bacteria and viruses.
  2. Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption: Eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are responsible for odors.
  3. Cartridge-based chemisorption: Destroys harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside a chemically active alumina pellet.
  4. Micro-charged filtration: Eliminates activated carbon and chemisorption abrasion particles through a charged fiber structure.

100% Healthy technology

Our HyperHEPA filtration technology is the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air. The GC MultiGas particle filters work in tandem to remove more than 99 percent of all airborne particles (0.3 microns and larger) without using unsafe or unproven technologies such as ozone generation, ionization, ultraviolet radiation. And the micro-charged filtration post-filter in the GC MultiGas system eliminates any particles that might be released from our carbon and alumina gas, odor and chemical filtration stage. Why risk your health on less effective gimmicks when IQAir's unique design offers proven protection without harmful byproducts?

The quietest high performance air purifiers ever

The New Edition has an average of 32% less sound across all fan speeds, without sacrificing filter life or system efficiency. You can now have clean, healthy air without disrupting your environment with noise. Our "fan-in-center" design places the fan motor between sound-attenuating filters. The double-walled housing effectively reduces sound transmission. Rubber suspension pads systematically isolate motor vibration from the air cleaner housing. The EvenFlow Diffuser deflects sounds back into the system while returning low turbulence and low velocity air to your room. The result is an air purifier quiet enough for your bedroom.

Swiss quality

Swiss Made is more than just a label of origin. It is a sign of outstanding quality, uniqueness, superior design, innovation, precision and reliability. In an industry where most air cleaners don't meet manufacturers' claims, we test and certify each and every IQAir air purification system.  All our manufacturing is done in our own state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of the Lake of Constance. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of highly skilled and extensively trained craftsmen and women, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined over almost 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world. That’s how serious we are about quality.

Energy efficient

Even though the IQAir New Edition is very powerful, it still requires no more power than a conventional light bulb. At the very heart of this air purifier is the ultra-efficient centrifugal, high performance New Edition fan and its maintenance-free motor. This amazing powerhouse delivers up to 780 cubic feet of air per minute while requiring as little as 27 watts of power at the lowest speed and up to a maximum of 215 watts at the highest speed. As a result, it costs only pennies per day to run the most advanced and effective air purifier in the world.

All plastics are not created equal

IQAir understands that for many people, including those with multiple chemical sensitivities, any odors or chemicals in the air can be a problem. So while the GC MultiGas is unequaled in removing impurities from the air you breathe, it also goes the extra distance to avoid putting anything bad into the air as part of the air purification process. That's why GC MultiGas components include only the highest quality, non-off-gassing ABS plastics. You can count on years of reliability and sturdiness, without odors and gases being emitted by the system itself.

Size Matters

Ordinary HEPA filters
can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.

IQAir's HyperHEPA
technology filters the
smallest airborne particles
that exist.

More than
90%

particles

0.003 microns

Viruses
Viruses

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
Tobacco Smoke

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
Soot

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
Pet Dander

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
Dust Mites

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
Bacteria

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
Household Dust

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.

Mold Spores
Mold Spores

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
Pollen

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.

Coarse Particles

Select one of the particles
above to see how it affects your body

ULTRAFINE PARTICLES (Particles 0.003μ - 0.1μ) | 90% of all airborne particles

Ultrafine particles are airborne particles less than 0.1 microns in diameter. In sheer number, they represent more than 90% of all airborne pollutants. Ultrafine particles are inhaled and deposited directly into the lungs, where they penetrate tissue and can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Through the bloodstream, they can reach any organ or area of the human body.

FINE PARTICLES (PM2.5) | Greater than 9% of all airborne particles

Fine particles (also known as PM2.5) are particulate matter that is less than or equal to 2.5 microns in diameter. Fine particles penetrate deeply into the lungs, into areas known as small airways and into the primary air exchange areas of the lungs. Fine particles come from vehicle exhaust, gas and chemical reactions, tobacco smoke, burning candles and other indoor and outdoor sources.

COARSE PARTICLES (PM10) | Less than 1% of all airborne particles

Coarse particles (also known as PM10) are those with a diameter between 2.5 and 10 microns in diameter. Coarse particles are deposited almost exclusively in the nose and throat. They are not generally inhalable directly into the lungs. Examples of PM10 include coal dust, fly ash, some components of wood smoke, asbestos fibers, and roadside particles from tires and brakes. This category also includes dust, some pollen and mold spores.
