IQAir North America announced today that their HealthPro Plus room air purifier has received Consumers Digest’s prestigious “Best Buy” award – being named the top product in the premium selection category. The HealthPro Plus is featured in the December 2007 issue of Consumers Digest in an article entitled “Today’s Best Air Purifiers, Humidifiers & Heaters.” Consumers Digest’s product reviewers call the HealthPro Plus “the Cadillac of air purifiers” and give it their top recommendation for “families with significant allergy considerations.”
“This top placement award shows that Consumers Digest’s reviewers recognize that families with allergies, asthma, and other serious respiratory conditions want and need filtration in the ultra-fine particle range,” says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir. “Numerous scientific studies show us that it is the smallest particles that are the most harmful to people’s health – and that is the particle size range most air purifiers miss.”
The HealthPro Plus features IQAir’s patented HyperHEPA filtration. While most air purifiers are only designed to filter large dust particles, those 0.3 microns and larger, HyperHEPA technology filters down to 0.003 microns, smaller than a virus, with a guaranteed minimum efficiency of over 99.5%. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration has made the HealthPro Plus the top choice in hospitals around the world to remove airborne particulate such as the SARS virus, MRSA, and tuberculosis.
Consumers Digest also noted that the HealthPro Plus’ multi-filtration system contains IQAir’s exclusive V5-Cell gas and odor filter. Many consumers are concerned with chemical vapors from household cleaners and other odors in their homes, but most air purifiers contain little or nothing to filter these irritants. The HealthPro Plus’ V5-Cell filtration offers the most powerful gas and chemical filtration available in a residential air purifier.
“The HealthPro Plus stands alone as the air purifier offering the highest standard of uncomromising excellence,” says Hammes. “It is the air purifier to chose if you have allergies, asthma, or simply want to breathe the healthiest air possible. This award helps consumers who are looking for the very best and don’t want to settle for anything else.”
