Advanced HVAC-based air cleaning for the workplace

IQAir: Perfect 16 Installation in just 3 Steps video still

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.

Traps ultrafine particles

Ultrafine particles smaller than 0.1 microns make up about 90% of airborne particles, originating from vehicle exhaust, factory emissions, and cooking. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma, and even cancer. HyperHEPA filtration in the Perfect 16 filters ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

We promise, certify, and deliver a 95% reduction of airborne particles down to 0.3 microns and 85% reduction in airborne particles down to 0.003 microns, including dust, pollen, mold spores, bacteria, and viruses, and PM2.5.

How it works

  1. Air from the indoor environment is drawn into the HVAC system return grills.
  2. Air passes through four pleated micro-fiber filtration panels arranged in a "double-V" configuration with over 170 square feet of filter media.
  3. Filtered air passes through the heating and cooling system and is delivered 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.
