Perfect 16®


The IQAir Perfect 16

Advanced HVAC-based air cleaning for the workplace

Expert installation

Installation only takes about 3-6 hours with 10 times cleaner air within one hour – guaranteed! First, an IQAir authorized installer checks the HVAC system for compatibility and size to determine which Perfect 16 model(s) are needed. Buildings over 2,500 square feet usually have more than one HVAC system and will need more than one Perfect 16. Then, the proper equipment is ordered and another appointment is scheduled for installation.

Proven against ultrafine particles

Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns and make up about 90% of all airborne particles, originating from combustion from vehicle exhaust, factory emissions, and cooking. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma, and even cancer.

IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the Perfect 16 is proven and certified to filter ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

When it comes to peerless protection against ultrafine particulates, gases, and odors, IQAir is the proven choice.

Unrivaled performance

We promise, certify, and deliver a more than 95% reduction of airborne particles above 0.3 microns and an 85% reduction in airborne particles above 0.003 microns (the smallest that exist). These airborne particles include dust, pollen, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and pollution particles. Your system's performance is documented in your own Perfect 16 Clean Air Guarantee that your installer signs and dates.

How it works

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.

SEMKO report for MERV 16 rating

The Perfect 16 is the only HVAC air filtration system 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. 

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.
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.
