Customer Q & A
Q1: Hello - I am very interested in this product. Does the filter monitor specify which filter needs replacing? I noticed that all 3 filters have different life estimates. If no individual indication, how do you know which filter needs replacing?
The filter life readout that you'll see on the LCD screen will just give you the approximate number of hours remaining, based on usage and current fan speed. Where you will know when to replace the filter is by the small lights on the mini IQ unit on the control panel. That small HealthPro image has a light by where each of the filters is situated in the machine. Green is good. Yellow means it's likely time to order your new filters, and Red means it's time to replace your filters. They will change colors individually and specifically for each separate filter. So the PreMax filter will display yellow, then red, before the HyperHEPA does. You can always use the LCD screen to scroll to the filter life and check the hours remaining, but with just a glance, the individual lights on the mini IQ graphic will let you know which individual filter needs to be replaced.
Q2: Do your air filters release any ozone into the atmosphere??
No. No air purifier we currently offer produces any measurable amounts of ozone.
Q3: How much do replacement filters cost for the IQ Air? How often do they need to be changed?
Specific filters life varies by machine, and most IQAir purifiers have a monitor that will let you know the approximate filter life remaining. As a general rule, the PreMax prefilter
lasts 6-18 months. The HyperHEPA
filter lasts 2-4 years, and the V5 Cell
lasts 1-2 years. Replacement times will vary depending on use and the air quality in the room. The costs are $59, $189, and $89, respectively.

IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifier
What I like about the IQAir HealthPro Compact
The IQAir HealthPro Compact is designed to provide quiet, reliable particle filtration in small bedrooms and offices. With a shorter profile, lighter weight and lower
initial cost, the HealthPro Compact effectively removes particle allergens from your indoor air. When comparing the Compact to similar air purifiers and the rest of
the IQAir HealthPro line, this is what we found.
The filtration performance is identical to that of the larger HealthPro air purifiers. The HealthPro Compact features the same HyperHEPA
filter that captures a minimum of 99.5% of all particles 0.003 and larger, and the PreMax pre-filter works to trap pet hair, large and medium sized particles while
extending the life of the HEPA filter. The triple sealed system allows for no air leakage and enables the HealthPro Compact to deliver a 0 particle reading of particles 0.3 to
30 microns in size, when tested with a particle meter. So while the the overall size is smaller than the larger models, the performance outpaces models twice it's size.
The control module of the Compact is essentially identical to that used in the more expensive HealthPro air purifiers. So the same convenience and custom
features hold true for the Compact. With this type of control you can quickly see how much filter life is left for each filter as well as set a filtration schedule
that meets your needs.
Each of the components in the IQAir Compact are the
best quality. IQAir has long paid attention to small details that other manufacturers miss or ignore as a way to
trim costs. From the a triple seal system that ensures no air leakage to a 320° diffuser to cut down on drafts, the HealthPro Compact features smaller conveniences
that make a big difference. Casters allow for easy maneuverability and high impact plastic will endure the every day dings and collisions from children or pets.
Few air purifiers have the brand reputation that IQAir has, and the HealthPro Compact is no exception. IQAir has one of the longest histories in the air filtration business.
This is why each unit is individually tested and certified before it leaves the factory. Quality is important as is upholding the value of a brand that
has been an industry leader. This quality and value is why you can find IQAir products in places where filtration is most critical, hospitals, labs, clean rooms, the
bedrooms of allergy, asthma and MCS sufferers around the world.
As a final note, the IQAir Compact is one of the New Edition IQ models. This means the compact features more filter media and an improved fan design that allows
the Compact to last longer while cleaning more air. Reduced noise levels, greater coverage area and fewer filter changes mean you spend less on replacement filters but
get more clean air out of each set.
What I do not like about the IQAir HealthPro Compact
Their are really only two drawbacks to the HealthPro Compact. First, the Compact only provides particle filtration - first-class particle filtration, but ONLY
particle filtration. While HEPA filters do trap some smoke
particles, they are not very efficient in truly removing chemicals, odors or smoke. Unlike the full size HealthPro, the compact is NOT expandable. So if particle
allergens like pollen, dander, mold spores, and dust are what you need filtered, the Compact is a great choice. If smoke, odors, VOC's or chemical filtration is
what you need, consider a HealthPro Plus.
The second drawback to the Health Pro Compact is the filter replacement cost. While you generally won't be changing the filters as frequently as with some brands,
when you do, the cost may seem a bit prohibitive for a unit that cannot remove smoke, odors or VOC's. Where you will make up some of that is in the quality and
durability of the machine. Plus, with this being a New Edition model, it features increased filter media and slightly longer filter life, both of which help offset costs.
Like many of the products we offer, the IQAir HealthPro Compact is best when used for its intended purpose. So in bedrooms, small offices, dorm rooms and nurseries where
particle pollutants like dust, pollen, and dander are a concern, the Compact can provide a much needed improvement in indoor air quality. While the overall expense may
be more, the HealthPro Compact provides the full range of particle filtration that will provide years of service and more importantly, clean air.
