Reviewboard’s Product of the Year

IQAir Whole-House Air Cleaning System Reviewboard’s 2006 Product of the Year

“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition,” says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir. “The Perfect 16 delivers the highest level of air cleaning effectiveness available to homeowners. Reviewboard tested the system in a real home, not in a laboratory, and they saw an almost 95% improvement in air quality.”

“Our readers trust our reviews to help them make informed decisions,” says Philip Ferreira, Editor-in-Chief of Reviewboard Magazine. “The home we tested the Perfect 16 in was immaculate, but like many homes it had a hidden problem – unhealthy indoor air. We used advanced laser particle counting equipment before and after installation so that our readers could see what they could really expect if they had this system installed in their own home.”

The Perfect 16 retrofits into existing heating and/or air conditioning (HVAC) systems. It uses the existing duct work of a home to provide clean air to every room of the house.

The Perfect 16 utilizes IQAir’s Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration technology. The ultra-fine fibers used in the Perfect 16′s filters are ten times thinner than the fibers used in standard air filters. This allows air to pass easily through the filter mesh while creating an almost impenetrable barrier for common household pollutants like dust, pollen, mold spores, allergens, even bacteria and viruses.

Reviewboard noted that the Perfect 16 does away with a major annoyance of other whole-house air purifiers: frequent cleaning or filter changes. Most air purifier systems require cleaning or filter changes every few months. The Perfect 16 is filter replacement and maintenance free for up to three years.

The Perfect 16 utilizes the circulation of a home’s forced air HVAC system. It does not require additional electricity to operate, and unlike electronic air purifiers, it produces absolutely no ozone.

“The Perfect 16 is a truly amazing product,” says Ferreira. “In our judgment, it is the best whole-house air purification system on the market. It is exceptional in its air cleaning effectiveness and ultra-low maintenance. It’s a true winner and deserving of Reviewboard’s 2006 Product of the Year award.”

The Perfect 16 can be seen Sunday, Nov. 5, 8/7c on ABC’s popular television show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”, as IQAir helps the show’s Design Team build a healthy home for a young girl who has had four heart surgeries. It is also currently featured in “Esquire House 360″ in Beverly Hills, California.
