Size Matters Infographic
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.
of all airborne
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.

In its own class
Designed to do what other air purifiers cannot.
320-degree air exhaust
Most air cleaners return filtered air into the room through a small, noisy outlet that generates annoying drafts. The IQAir HealthPro Series features IQAir’s unique EvenFlow™ Diffuser with 320-degree air delivery. Filtered air is evenly distributed in all directions. The wide dispersion pattern allows the HealthPro Series to produce an astounding air delivery rate with very little noise.
100% Healthy technology
Many air purifiers use technology that produces potentially harmful byproducts, such as ozone, ions, chemicals and ultrafine particles. IQAir uses only the safest, healthiest and most effective technology to clean the air. Why risk your health on less effective methods when IQAir offers proven protection without harmful byproducts?
The HealthPro Plus is designed with a 4-stage filtration process that cleans the full spectrum of airborne pollutants through a series of filters manufactured by IQAir to be the best in each category.
- Micro-Particle Filtration: After air is drawn in through the air intake, the Pre-Max™ Pre-Filter eliminates micro-particles such as pollen, pet dander and mold spores.
- Granular Activated Carbon Adsorption: Next, the V5-Cell™ Gas & Odor Filter (optional on HealthPro and not available on HealthPro Compact) uses granular activated carbon adsorption to eliminate volatile organic compounds (the cause of odors) and other harmful chemicals.
- Pelletized Chemisorption: The V5-Cell also includes a pelletized chemisorption filter to destroy other harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde.
- HyperHEPA Filtration: Finally, the unequalled IQAir HyperHEPA filter eliminates fine and ultrafine particles, including bacteria, viruses and combustion particles.
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 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. We manufacture our air purifiers at our state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of Lake Constance. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of highly skilled and extensively trained specialists, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined for more than 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world. That’s how serious we are about quality.
Easy filter replacement
The IQAir HealthPro Series features a revolutionary modular tower design, which snaps open to allow access to all filters in a matter of seconds. By simply releasing the locking arms and sliding the filters out of the frame, almost anyone can replace any of the HealthPro Series filters in moments without special tools or complicated processes. No other air purifier even comes close to the simplicity of maintaining an IQAir air purifier.
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.
