Proven against ultrafine particles

IQAir HyperHEPA filtration is proven effective against particles 100x smaller than what ordinary air filters claim.

Click here to see why particle size matters...

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 is proven and certified to filter ultrafine 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.

Unrivaled performance

The Perfect 16 removes a minimum of 90% of all airborne particles 0.3 microns or larger from the environment.

We promise and deliver a more than 90% reduction of airborne particles or your money back. That includes dust, pollen, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and pollution particles. IQAir sets a new industry standard by certifying your Perfect 16's performance after it's been installed in your building. If the system is installed by IQAir, your installer will use an IQAir handheld laser particle counter to ensure the system is removing at least 90% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger. The system's performance is documented in your own Perfect 16 Clean Air Guarantee that your installer signs and dates.

How it works

The Perfect 16 is designed to fit seamlessly right into a building’s existing HVAC system, supplying medical-grade air continuously.

Together, a building's HVAC system and the Perfect 16 clean the air in the environment up to 125 times per day. Here's how it works:

  1. Air from the indoor environment is drawn into the HVAC system return grills.
  2. The air passes through four pleated micro-fiber filtration panels arranged in a "double-V" configuration with more than 170 square feet of filter media. This allows the Perfect 16 to deliver up to 50 times more filtration power than ordinary filtration systems.
  3. Clean air is passed through the heating and cooling system and delivered back into the environment via supply ductwork and diffusers located throughout the building.

Proven to work

Rigorous third-party testing verifies that the Perfect 16 achieves a MERV 16 rating, the highest rating possible.

The Perfect 16 is the only air filtration system that is rated a perfect MERV 16, the highest rating possible.

Intertek/ETL SEMKO subjected the Perfect 16 to rigorous testing based on the toughest industry standards and certified it as MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) 16. No other system has a higher rating! 

The MERV standard was created by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to independently verify how well an air filtration system really cleans the air. This independent test report proves that the IQAir Perfect 16 cleans the air with a minimum efficiency of 95% for particles 0.3 microns and larger, and more than 85% of all ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns, the smallest particles that exist.

Absolutely silent

Since the Perfect 16 does not contain electrical components or moving parts of any kind, it’s absolutely silent.

The Perfect 16 does not contribute any additional sound over the existing HVAC system. And because it is installed in an HVAC closet or other location as part of your building's HVAC system, it does not intrude upon working or public spaces.
