Performance

 

 

 

Up to 21% more clean air

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. By improving further on the HyperHEPA® pre-filter pleating design, we were able to increase loading capacity up to 21%. This translates into higher airflow while increasing filter life. This higher efficiency also saves you money by lowering filter replacement costs.

Fine and ultrafine particles on IQAir filter fibers.

Proven performance against ultrafine particles

Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns. By sheer number, about 90% of all airborne particles are this size. The primary source of ultrafine particles is combustion from motor vehicles, refineries, industrial plants and even cooking. Viruses are also ultrafine particles. The small size of ultrafine particles enables them to be easily inhaled, deposited into the lungs and absorbed into the blood. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.

Manufacturers of ordinary air filtration systems claim only that their systems filter particles larger than 0.3 microns. IQAir is different. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the HealthPro Series is proven and certified to filter at least 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Independent testing by laboratories and government agencies verifies the effectiveness of IQAir technology against ultrafine particles. When it comes to protection against ultrafine particulates, IQAir is the proven choice.

100 Gas masks

The GC MultiGas packs the chemical removal power of more than 100 gas masks into its filter cartridges.

Highest amount of micropores

The activated carbon used in IQAir GC MultiGas filter cartridges is activated in a way to preserve the maximum number of micropores. Only these very smallest pores in carbon filtration media are effective in removing odors and chemicals from the air you breathe. IQAir's filters contain the maximum micropore coverage to help protect your health.

Certified performance

Because our design and manufacturing standards are so high, IQAir individually tests each GC MultiGas air purifier at the factory to ensure that its performance meets our strict specifications.  The results of the tests are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is shipped in the box with every air purifier. Your GC MultiGas air purifier will not be shipped from the factory unless it is certified to provide a minimum of 99% efficiency against particles.

Up to 20% longer filter life

IQAir’s New Edition air purifiers feature the most advanced filter-pleating pattern ever designed for a residential system. This technology not only increases airflow, but also increases particulate loading capacity by 20% on the H11 HyperHEPA pre-filter. This saves you money and reduces the frequency of filter replacements.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

As many as 15% of Americans, or about 46 million people, suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), characterized by elevated sensitivities to household chemicals and commercial products. Symptoms can include eye irritation, wheezing, fatigue, rhinitis, sore throat or cough, skin rashes and other symptoms. The best strategy for treating MCS is to avoid the airborne contaminants and chemicals that trigger the illness and reactions. Because indoor air pollution concentrations are typically much higher than outdoor air pollution levels, “air-filtration devices that remove both particulate and chemical substances from breathable indoor air usually benefit MCS patients considerably,” one leading medical expert concluded.

Reviewers rate IQAir air purifiers as the best systems available for MCS sufferers. Most other air purifiers simply are not effective enough to make a real difference in the quality of the air an MCS sufferer breathes. Equally important, IQAir does not use any technologies that add additional MCS triggers into the air, such as ozone or chemicals. And IQAir products are constructed of computer-grade ABS plastics that do not “off-gas” into the air.

Size Matters

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

IQAir Logo

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

More than
90%
of all airborne
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.

Fine Particles

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.
