14. Compared to HealthPro Series

The New Edition HealthPro Plus is IQAir's top of the line residential air purifier and is certainly the best value in the IQAir lineup. It is identical to the HealthPro model in every way, except that it comes included with the V5 Cell Gas & Odor Filter for removal of gases, chemicals, and odors including smoke and VOCs. The HealthPro sells for $50 less and does not include the V5 Filter, but it can be added at any time for $99. So, if you purchase the HealthPro and then later choose to add the V5 Filter to upgrade it to the HealthPro Plus, you will have essentially paid an extra $50 as a result. Purchasing the HealthPro Plus at the start saves you $50 if you ever think you might have a use for removing chemicals, gases, smoke, or odors from your air.

If you are sure you will never have a need for gas, chemical, smoke, or odor removal, then the HealthPro Compact is the most economical choice. At $799, you get everything you would get with the HealthPro model, except the compartment reserved for the V5 Cell Gas & Odor Filter is left out of the unit, so you cannot upgrade it in the future to the HealthPro Plus model. The HealthPro Compact also does not come with a remote control.
