The IQAir HealthPro New Edition, introduced in September, 2012, features the same advanced micro and nano-particle filter technologies as the top of the line HealthPro Plus New Edition, but does not include the V5-Cell Gas & Odor Filter for gases, odors, and chemicals. With its powerful new fan and innovative new filter designs, the HealthPro New Edition system produces up to 25% more clean air, while operating at an average of 32% quieter. The completely redesigned fan circulates more air at lower sound levels, despite the significantly higher airflow rates, and the new filter upgrades extend the life of the HyperHEPA and pre-filters up to 38% longer. Spend less on filter replacements while getting more clean air than ever before.
The HealthPro New Edition effectively removes every type of particulate air pollutant, including all common allergens, such as Dust and dust mite allergens, Pollen, Pet Dander, and Mold Spores. It offers the same high level HyperHEPA particle filtration as the HealthPro Plus New Edition, is ideal for allergy sufferers, and is suitable for room sizes up to 1,240 sq ft. And you can always upgrade to the HealthPro Plus New Edition at any time by simply adding the V5-Cell Gas & Odor Filter. This makes the HealthPro New Edition the ideal choice for allergy sufferers and other health-conscious individuals that need ultra high-efficiency particle removal with the option of later adding gas and odor removal.
IQAir HealthPro New Edition Features and Benefits:
Advanced Electronic Control Panel:
- HyperHEPA Filter for Advanced Hospital-Grade Particle Filtration:
IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration is tested and certified to filter dust particles down to 0.003 microns (the world's smallest particle) with a guaranteed minimum efficiency of over 99.5%. This is 100 times better than what can be achieved by ordinary HEPA technology. The Hyper-HEPA filter eliminates bacteria, viruses and combustion particles from automobiles and smoke through a nano-fiber structure. HyperHEPA filtration technology is the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air. Air is filtered with no ozone, no ions, no UV, no chemicals or any other unhealthy byproducts. Unlike the HEPA filters used in conventional air cleaners, the IQAir HyperHEPA filter is manufactured to such a high quality standard that it conforms to the most stringent hospital and cleanroom requirements. In fact, IQAir is the world's only manufacturer to supply independently type-tested HEPA filter elements in their air cleaner. IQAir is also the number one choice of air purifiers used in hundreds of hospitals worldwide.
- Spare compartment for upgrade to V5-Cell:
This module allows you to add the advanced gas and odor filter (V5-Cell) featured in the HealthPro Plus whenever you want, to easily upgrade the unit from a HealthPro to a HealthPro Plus.
- PreMax Prefilter for Micro-Particle Filtration:
While most air purifiers use small prefilters with particle efficiencies well below 20%, the large, commercial-sized super-efficient IQAir PreMax prefilter typically retains over 90% of coarse and fine dust. The PreMax prefilter is thus the most efficient pre-filter of any household air purifier, allowing the Hyper-HEPA filter to last up to 5 times longer than similar filters in ordinary air purifiers.
- 100% Sealed Filtration
Many residential air purifiers use HEPA filters that claim a 99.97% efficiency rating for filtering particulates 0.3 microns or larger. However, poor seals, system leakage, and inferior construction can greatly reduce the overall efficiency of these units. The HealthPro has a 100% completely sealed system throughout, and is the first air purifier ever to achieve a "0" (zero) reading on a particle scanner test. This means that advanced testing equipment can find absolutely no particles escaping the advanced HyperHEPA system.
- Ultra-Quiet Design:
With its large fan motor, the IQAir HealthPro produces more clean air with less noise than conventional air purifiers. Unlike most air purifiers, which have the fan motor located after all filter stages, the IQAir HealthPro has the fan in the center, in-between its noise absorbing filters. In addition, the unique double-walled housing design reduces sound transmission. Eight rubber suspension pads isolate the fan motor and ensure that vibration is not transmitted to the housing.
- Red Label Fan for quieter and more efficient performance:
All IQAir Air Purifiers now ship with the new and improved "Red Label" fan, which features a revolutionary 7-blade design. The increased size and aerodynamic shape of the fan blades delivers a performance boost with increased energy efficiency, air delivery and quieter operation.
- No Air Drafts:
The HealthPro is designed to avoid annoying and noisy air drafts. The 320° EvenFlow™ Diffuser deflects sounds back into the system while evenly returning low turbulence, low velocity clean air to your room. The results are impressive - the IQAir HealthPro is suitable for even the most noise sensitive environments and is virtually inaudible at the lowest fan speed setting.
- Low Energy Consumption:
Even though it's extremely powerful, the HealthPro is also energy efficient. Using one of the most efficient fans in the industry ensures that your HealthPro costs only pennies per day to use.
- EN 1822 Tested & Certified:
Released in the year 2000, EN 1822 is the world's most advanced and stringent air filter standard for HEPA filters. IQAir's HyperHEPA filter elements are currently the world's first filters in an air cleaner to have been type-tested inside the IQAir housing by and independent filter testing laboratory (Filtech Laboratories, Switzerland). Many hospitals and high-tech manufacturers, such as Intel, already require their filter suppliers to supply them with EN 1822 certification.
- Certified Performance:
In an industry where most air purifiers don't actually meet their manufacturers' claims, IQAir tests and certifies each and every HealthPro. Each HealthPro is tested for particle filtration efficiency, filter leakage and air delivery. Your Medical Grade HealthPro will arrive to you with a hand-signed certificate of performance so that you know the exact efficiency of your air cleaner (99.5% or better). That means every HealthPro has to filter out 99.5% of the pollutants in the air in order to arrive at your home.
- Swiss Quality:
IQAir air purifiers are precision engineered and built in a production facility in Switzerland to exacting standards. The IQAir factory uses only the finest components, and (much like a fine Swiss watch) great attention to detail is given to each system built.
- Five-Year Warranty:
The IQAir HealthPro is an investment in clean air for many years to come, and is covered for a full five (5) years against defects in parts and labor (excluding filters).
- Intelligent Filter Life Monitor: Ordinary air purifiers make you guess when to replace filters, or use a preset timer. The HealthPro intelligent filter life monitor takes actual use, speed settings and air quality conditions into account. This ensures maximum filter yield and performance. LED's also alert you when it's time to replace filters.
- Six Fan Speed Settings: Most air purifiers provide only two or three fan settings. You have to run the unit either on a quiet but ineffective fan speed, or choose a more powerful, but noisy speed. The HealthPro gives you the choice of up to six fan speeds, allowing you to select the ideal performance-to-sound ratio.
- Integrated Timer: Program the HealthPro to run automatically based on your lifestyle. Set the unit to run during office hours, or program it in your bedroom to go on after you have reached deep slumber.
- Remote Control: A sleek remote control is included to allow easy remote operation of the air purifier. Easily turn the unit on and off, select the fan speed and activate the timer from as far as 30 feet away.
The IQAir HealthPro comes complete with: Set of 2 Filters (1 PreMax and 1 HyperHEPA), Remote Control (battery included), Set of 4 Casters, Owners Manual, 10 foot Power Cord, and Certificate of Guaranteed Performance.
