Traps ultrafine particles
Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns, make up about 90% of all airborne particles, and have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma, and even cancer. IQAir filtration in the Perfect 16 filters ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.

Ordinary HEPA filters can only filter 0.3 micron particles and larger.
technology filters the
smallest airborne particles
of all airborne
Viruses: 0.005 – 0.3 microns
Like bacteria, viruses are organisms that spread airborne diseases as mild as the common cold and as serious as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) through coughs, sneezes and improperly maintained ventilation systems.
Tobacco Smoke: 0.01 – 1 micron
Sidestream smoke has higher concentrations of cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than mainstream smoke. And, it has smaller particles than mainstream smoke, which make their way into the lungs and the body's cells more easily.
Soot: 0.01 – 0.3 microns
Long-term exposure to urban air pollution containing soot increases the risk of coronary heart disease, according to a major study published in New England Journal of Medicine in 2007.
of all airborne
Pet Dander: 0.1 – 25 microns
Pet dander is the old skin and fur that pets shed. Animal dander is very small and can become attached to your clothingeven if you do not own a pet. Dander can be found everywhere: floors, carpets, walls, furniture, bedding, even the ceilings. Pet dander is a known asthma and allergy trigger.
Dust Mites Allergens: 0.2 – 25 microns
House dust mites are considered to be the most common cause of asthma and allergic symptoms worldwide. Dust mites themselves do not cause an allergic reaction, however, their dung-pellets are an irritant to sensitive people and can cause breathing difficulties. They thrive in warm, humid, dark conditions such as mattresses, carpets, sheets, pillows, and upholstery.
Bacteria: 0.5 – 10 microns
People spread bacteria through the air when they cough and sneeze, transmitting respiratory diseases and triggering symptoms in asthma sufferers. Bacteria can also grow inside poorly maintained ventilation systems, which spread it into the circulating air.
Household Dust: 1 – 100 micron
Dust may worsen hay fever. Circulating outdoor air through a house by keeping doors and windows open, or at least slightly ajar, may reduce the risk of hay fever-causing dust. In colder climates, occupants seal even the smallest air gaps, and eliminate outside fresh air circulating inside the house. So it is essential to manage dust and airflow.
of all airborne
Mold Spores: 8 – 80 microns
Mold and fungus are commonly found in most homes and may be found in the air ducts of your heating/cooling system. They tend to float throughout the house, and form new colonies where they land. Fungus spores have been known to increase the chances of developing asthma.
Pollen: 10 – 100 microns
One of the most common allergens is pollen. It affects the nose, eyes, and mouth making it difficult to breathe. Most pollen that produces allergic reactions is from trees, grasses, and weeds.
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
The Perfect 16 is integrated into your home’s HVAC system. All the air in your home is filtered, and clean air is delivered via your existing supply ductwork.
- Air intake
Air is drawn through your home’s return grill, typically located in a common area such as a hallway or living room.
- Perfect 16 filtration
The air passes through four high-performance air filters 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.
- Clean air delivery
Clean air is passed through your heating and cooling system and delivered back into your home via the supply ductwork and diffusers located in each room.
SEMKO report for whole house air purifier
The Perfect 16 is the only whole-house 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. 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.
Smart-home integration (IFTTT)
Connect an AirVisual Pro air quality monitor to your smart thermostat and control your Perfect 16 filtration smartly. Set up alerts about air quality changes for your smartphone. Take immediate action when air quality does not meet your standards.
The Perfect 16 has no motors, no fans, and no noise. It delivers medical-grade air throughout your entire home without contributing any additional sound over your existing HVAC system. And because it is installed in a basement, attic, or garage, it does not intrude upon your living space.
