Perfect 16®


#1 Commercial HVAC air purifier

Fits seamlessly into your existing HVAC system, silently and effectively cleaning 100% of the air in your building

Energy efficient marvel

The Perfect 16 is an energy-efficient marvel. It outperforms other air purifiers, while using no additional electricity.

The Perfect 16 has one of the lowest air restriction levels in the industry, so it keeps a site's HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently without forcing it to push air harder. In fact, the Perfect 16 actually improves the performance of a heating and cooling system when compared to conventional air cleaners. As a result, the Perfect 16 can lower energy bills while attaining a MERV 16 rating, the highest filtration rating possible.

Ultra-low air restriction

Other, lesser, air cleaners can significantly impede the air flow of a central heating and air conditioning system by as much as 50%.

Filter fibers in the Perfect 16 are 10 times thinner than those in standard air filters. Air easily passes through the Perfect 16’s V2 filter design, even though the actual surface area contains up to 50 times more filtration media than typical filters. The result is an ultra-efficient and ultra-low restriction filter that sets a new standard for air purifiers.

Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration (AMF)

Thinner fibers can filter more air with less resistance, creating an almost impenetrable barrier to pollutants.

The Perfect 16 was the first HVAC-based air cleaning system to use Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration (AMF) technology. Filter fibers are 10x thinner than those used in standard air filters. This allows air to easily pass through the filters, while the ultra-fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier for pollution particles.

Easy maintenance

Filters in the Perfect 16 last up to 12 times longer than typical HVAC filters, saving you money and maintenance costs.

Most HVAC-based air cleaning systems and filters require replacement every three months (that's 4x a year!). 

The extra-large filter surface of the Perfect 16 translates into extra dust-holding capacity, and that means you only need to replace filters every three years (on 50% duty cycle; 18-month intervals with 100% duty cycle). 

When the time comes to finally replace your filters, the Perfect 16 is a snap to open and the filters slide easily in and out. And because the Perfect 16 has no moving parts or electrical devices or connections, you can count on it performing year after year with no required service other than filter replacements.

100% Healthy technology

The Perfect 16 features only the safest, healthiest, and most reliable air cleaning technology available to clean the air.

Only IQAir is proven through rigorous independent testing to effectively filter the air down to the 0.003 micron level.

We do not use unsafe or unproven technologies such as electronic air cleaning, ozone generation, ionization, ultraviolet radiation, chemicals or other unhealthy byproducts. In addition, IQAir’s Perfect 16 achieves an unrivaled level of filtration without risky electrostatic charging plates that can waste energy and produce ozone that irritates your lungs.

Why waste money on unproven and ineffective air cleaning technologies? The Perfect 16 offers proven protection without harmful byproducts.


10-year warranty

The Perfect 16 is an investment in clean air for many years to come, and is backed by a 10-year warranty.

Each Perfect 16 is manufactured at our factory in Switzerland to the highest standards in the industry. That's why IQAir is proud to cover the Perfect 16 for commercial use in the U.S. and Canada for 10 years against defects in parts and labor (if registered within 30 days of purchase). Filters are consumables and exempt from this warranty. The Limited Warranty applies only to IQAir products purchased in North America directly from IQAir North America, Inc. (or from an IQAir Authorized Dealer).

Swiss quality

Swiss Made is more than just a label of origin. It’s a sign of outstanding quality, uniqueness, superior design, innovation, precision, and reliability.

In an industry in which most air cleaners don't meet manufacturers' claims, we test and certify that each and every IQAir air purification system performs on the highest level.  All of our manufacturing is done in our own state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of the Lake of Constance.
