IQAir HealthPro - New Edition
The New Edition IQAir HealthPro features longer filter life (more filter media), higher CFM (greater coverage area), and quieter operation (redesigned motor)!Allergy sufferers love the popular IQAir HealthPro air purifier for its superb filtration of particle allergens and its reputation as the preferred choice in residential air filtration. The large IQAir HyperHEPA filter captures airborne particles as small as 0.003 microns with a guaranteed minimum 99.5% efficiency, which means that the IQAir Health Pro can remove up to 100 times more allergens than standard air cleaners. This filtration is in addition to it's HEPA rating of 99.97% filtration of particles 0.3 microns and larger. With a sealed system and real time filter life monitor, you can maximize the use of each filter and customize the HealthPro to fit your schedule. The IQ Air HealthPro is also expandable. By adding the V5 Filter you can turn the standard HealthPro into the HealthPro Plus. This upgrade expands the filtration range to include gases, chemicals, odors and smoke.
- Top-of-the-line, hospital-grade air filtration, and now with more filter media the HealthPro provides up to 25% more clean air.
- The Triple-Seal design reduces internal leakage, which can drastically reduce air cleaning efficiency. First, the filter media is 100% sealed in the filter frame. Second, IQAir's patented3D UltraSeal ensures perfect sealing between filter fame and housing. Third, individual knife-edge seals on each housing module lock it up airtight. Thus, IQAir air purifiers have a higher actual system efficiency than the theoretical efficiency of conventional air cleaners.
- Thanks to its ultra-quiet design, the newly redesigned IQAir fan motor creates up to 25% more clean air while reducing noise making the HealthPro 32% quieter. IQAir air purifiers have the fan in the center, between the noise-absorbing filters. Unique double-walled housing also reduces noise. Eight shock absorbers hold the fan, ensuring that vibration isn't transmitted to the housing. Virtually silent at the lowest setting.
- Programmable Control Panel and remote control.
- Intelligent Filter Life Monitor takes actual use, speed settings, and air quality conditions into account. This means that you replace the filter based on real usage, not a pre-set timer.
- Choose your ideal performance level with six fan speeds.
- An integrated timer means that your IQAir air purifier can be programmed to run automatically.
- Built to last and manufactured from thick, fully cured, high-grade injection molded ABS that won't off-gas any chemicals.
- Powerful yet energy efficient, the redesigned HealthPro air purifier uses less power but provides greater performance than before.
- Each IQAir air purifier has been individually tested & certified.
- The HealthPro is expandable, so by adding a V5 Cell Filter you can change a standard HealthPro into a HealthPro Plus and target odors, smoke and chemical pollutants.
- Effective for areas up to 550 square feet.
- The IQAir Health Pro comes standard with a 1 Year Warranty (10 Year w/ Warranty Registration).
IQAir HealthPro - New Edition - A Closer Look
- Breathing Again
Before using the IQAir system I could not breathe, now that I know 100% of the particles in the air are going into this unit and not my lungs I can breathe easy again.
- Hospital Quality Machine
At my work, an environmental health professional tested this machine in my work space (I brought it in due to sudden severe asthma problems). It reduced the air particles by over 66%, to hospital grade air quality. Works great.
- Great quality and well worth the cost.
This air purifier is amazing- I can't say enough good things about it! We recently got a cat...which I'm allergic to. I also have asthma. Since getting this air purifier, I can hardly tell there is a cat in the house. I barely ever have allergy symptoms. This is a very high quality machine and well worth the cost. The only negative is that it is loud on the highest setting (speed 6). Since it is programmable, I set it to run on high during the night while we are sleeping and I run it on medium the rest of the day and evening. You can hardly hear it running on speeds 1, 2 or 3.
- Great product! Really helps!
I have used air cleaners before, but this is by far the best. It gives the air such a fresh, pleasant feel. I believe I sleep better and that my allergies and asthma are better since I've been using it. Also, I've noticed that my cat's allergies seem to be better, and we've been able to cut back on her medicine. As others have said, if you're going to spend the money on a good air cleaner, spend a little more and get this one. You get it back again in saved medical/vet bills.
- Turning Manhattan air into pure Alabama quality
Upon leaving northern Alabama and moving to the heart of New York City, I could even smell the deterioation in air quality. And all the dust accomulating on my furniture daily was a very visual evidence. Ever since IQAir showed up in my bedroom, I can now enjoy the purity of air I got used to in pristine Huntsville, right by Columbus Circle in Manhattan.
This machine is amazing. A little loud on the the high setting but I can live with that if it does a great job, and that it does. We have another smaller air purifier beside a glass table in the room were we put the IQair and within a day or two when you dust, the table has dust on it. However with the IQAir across the room the table stays dust free much longer.
- Additional to previous review
I have to add something to my previous review. I had the best complement from a sister visiting from out of town. She said this visit has been the longest time she has been able to stay at my house without having to take an allergy pill due to the dogs. This is because of my IQAir there is no doubt in my mind since this is the only thing different I have done. This made the purchase even sweeter. I strongly encourage anyone who is considering purchasing one to make the purchase if you can.
- Healthy breathing family
We are a family of two adults, one baby, and two cats. Both adults allergic to cats. We live in hawaii, where our windows are often open and the wind blows around the dust and often brings in with it the pollens and other allergens of the outdoors. Since getting this air purifier a little over a year ago, I can breath and sleep at peace! We purchased it once I got pregnant, and it has been great to keep the baby breathing easy, too, especially with the cats. And it is a nice white noise maker for sleeping. We keep it in our bedroom, but it keeps most the home feeling like clean air 700sq ft place. I'd recommend to anyone!

IQAir HealthPro Air Purifier
The IQAir HealthPro can be an important piece of the puzzle when it comes to controlling allergens in and around your home. The HealthPro offers a variety of standard features that compliment its world class particle filtration to provide cleaner air, free of allergens like pet dander, pollen, mold spores, and dust mite allergen. With the change to the New Edition models, the HealthPro now features more filter media and a redesigned fan that reduces noise, increases filter life and improves airflow. With a sample model in tow, this model was tested, in-home, by one of our pet owning staffers, and here's what we found.
What I like about the IQ Air HealthPro
One of the first thing's you'll notice when opening any IQAir air purifier is that right on top, with the manual and remote, is a certificate that is handwritten, confirming that the model you have standing in front of you has been individually tested (results listed). No other manufacturer we work with individually certifies each unit with its own certificate).
To test this, I ran a particle counter in the my bedroom. This gave me a baseline reading of a little over 2 million particle (0.3 microns to 30 microns). After snapping the casters in place, inspecting my unit and thumbing through the manual, I plugged the HealthPro in and began set up.
The controls for the IQAir can look a little intimidating, especially if you haven't read through the manual yet, but a big positive to them is that, in reality, you have a choice. You can take advantage of the programming features like changing the language and setting the HealthPro to run on a certain schedule, OR you simply turn it on to the setting you want and just walk away, done!
So more than anything, the controls give you versatility and options that are there if you want them and easily ignored if you don't. For the IQAir Health Pro I had, I set it to run on a schedule, particularly since my bedroom is not very large, and I wanted to see how well it would do without having to run 24/7.
The IQ Air Health Pro uses three different waves to ensure that the airflow is consistent and the system truly sealed. Each filter is sealed between the actual filter media and the frame of each filter. Next, the frame of each filter seats into a plastic knife-edge inside each compartment. Then each individual compartment has a similar edge design that keeps them in line and seals. These three seals work to ensure that that air leaks through the system and that air flows correctly with no mixing.
Upon initially starting the unit, I again tested the particle count, this time at the base of the HealthPro. My reading was nearly identical to the one I took in the room shortly before (+2,000,000 particles). Testing the air outlet, that reading dropped to 0 in a matter of seconds. This was promising but a more real measure of the particle filtration would come from retesting the air in the room. After 1 hour the reading in the room had dropped to less than 40,000, and when measuring at the 2 hour mark, that reading had flatlined at 0. Aside from anecdotal evidence of allergy relief (no AM sneezing fits or less visible dust on the shelves), this showed a real, measurable improvement in the air quality in that room.(As a note, all doors and windows in that room were closed while testing)
The casters were a nice addition since it made it easier for me to move the unit from my tile living room onto the hardwood in my bedroom. On carpet, the movement isn't quite as smooth, but it beats having to pick the unit up and carry it.
The warranty has changed somewhat. In the past it was a standard five years. IQAir is now offering up to ten years of coverage, but only if you register your warranty. If you don't register it, the warranty now falls back to only a one year period.
What I do not like about the IQ Air HealthPro
Lack of odor control - The base HealthPro unit has nothing to target odors. The flip side of this is that at any time I can upgrade the HealthPro and make it a HealthPro Plus with just the addition of a V5 Filter. With it I can filter things like smoke, odors, and chemical vapors. Should I ever feel like I don't need odor control and longer, I can always simply drop the V5 filter and still have the same great particle filtration.
Initial Cost. IQAir HealthPro air purifiers come with a higher than average initial cost. This might scare away some people, but cost is really reflective of the product. The filtration is better than HEPA. It's a truly sealed system, and the HealthPro is customizable. You also have to consider the brand. IQAir is a leader in air filtration, and four years from now, if you have a problem, IQAir is still going to be here. The same may not be true for some less expensive competitors.
Overall, I was pleased with the results of the IQAir HealthPro air purifier. The test results as well the overall user experience was one that left me satisfied with this air purifier and its ability to live up to its stated claims. The HealthPro offers luxury features such as the programmable control panel, real-time filter life analysis, a digital interface and an easy to use remote control as well as basic essentials like a sealed system and casters. For allergy or asthma sufferers who are most concerned with particle allergens, the IQAir HealthPro is a great choice. Though a little pricey for some, the HealthPro is a quality allergy air purifier well suited for anyone who is concerned about the air they breathe.
