Proven against ultrafine particles

The Perfect 16 removes particles of all sizes. This includes ultrafine particles, the smallest and most dangerous airborne particles of all.

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 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 at least 95% of all particles ≥ 0.3 microns in diameter. The system's performance is verified after installation in your home.

We promise 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), 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 home. Your installer will use an IQAir handheld laser particle counter to ensure the system is removing at least 95% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger. 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.

  1. Air intake
    Air is drawn through your home’s return grill, typically located in a common area such as a hallway or living room.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Proven to work

Independent testing based on the toughest industry standards proves that the Perfect 16 is the superior whole-house air cleaning solution.

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. 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.

Since the Perfect 16 does not contain electrical components or moving parts of any kind it is absolutely silent. It does not contribute 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.
