It has the highest filtration efficiency for removing bacteria, pet allergens, mold spores, dust, pollen and other contaminants that can be detrimental to your health. The Perfect 16 is the perfect system for people who suffer from allergies, asthma or for people who just want to breathe healthier air and have a healthier lifestyle. Transform your house into a healthy home today!
What Makes the Perfect 16 the Best?
The World's First MERV 16 Rating! The Perfect 16 is the only system that is rated a perfect MERV 16, the highest rating possible. No other system has a higher rating! MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. The MERV system 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. The lowest MERV rating is 1, and the best potential MERV rating is 16. Until the Perfect 16, a MERV 16 rating was never achieved by a residential whole-house air cleaning system. This ultra-high level of air filtration efficiency had previously only been possible in hospitals and multi-million dollar cleanrooms. Now IQAir makes this level of filtration available in your home.
How Does it Work?
The Perfect 16 is the first whole-house air cleaning system to utilize Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration Technology. The Perfect 16's filter fibers are 10 times thinner than those used in standard air filters. This allows air to easily pass through the fibers, while the ultra-fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier for pollution particles. The result is an air filter that sets a new standard for air cleaning efficiency and airflow.
The 10 X Cleaner Air Guarantee
The Perfect 16 is the only whole-house air cleaning system that gives you a 90% improvement in indoor air quality within just one hour after installation - and it keeps getting better and better from there. But best of all - 10 X Cleaner Air is guaranteed! Your IQAir Authorized Installer will test your air with an advanced laser particle counter before and after installation to guarantee your Perfect 16 really is giving you the cleanest air possible. IQAir is the only air cleaning company that makes this industry-leading performance guarantee - and they guarantee you a minimum of 10 X Cleaner Air or your money back.
The V2 Filter Difference
Most air filters have a single flat surface that fits squarely in the housing of the system. The Perfect 16's filters are placed in a double "v" shape. The V2 design allows the Perfect 16 to use over 170 square feet of filter media. This is 50 times more filtration material than that of ordinary furnace filters. The additional surface area allows more air to pass through the system. This innovative concept makes a big difference in how much air the Perfect 16 can clean.
No Filter Replacements for up to 3 Years!
Most whole-house air cleaning systems and furnace filters require monthly changing and many even require weekly cleaning. The Perfect 16's revolutionary patented Double "V" filters are so efficient and long lasting that you don't need to do anything to service them for three full years (based on an average of 50% HVAC usage; if you run your system constantly 24/7, your filters will last approximately 1 1/2 years). The Perfect 16 takes the worry and hassle out of frequent filter changes and servicing.
Performance that Stays Strong
Many of the Perfect 16's competitors have a secret they don't want you to know about - their systems quickly lose efficiency with use. Electrostatic and electronic air cleaners can lose as much as 50% of their initial efficiency in a matter of weeks. This is because dust particles corrode their collection surface, making them less efficient. The Perfect 16's unique micro-fiber filtration permanently removes particles, and it is designed to maintain its high level of efficiency for the life of the filter. It starts out strong and stays strong.
Ultra Low Air Resistance
Conventional whole-house air cleaners can impede the air flow of your central heating and air conditioning system by as much as 50%. This air resistance makes your system work harder and longer to try to force the air through to heat or cool your home. The Perfect 16 is designed to have ultra-low air resistance and actually improves the performance efficiency of your heating and cooling system. As a result, the Perfect 16 can actually lower your energy bill by improving the performance of your HVAC system.
Ozone is a lung irritant and asthma trigger that is emitted by many air cleaning systems. Even small amounts of ozone are undesirable for people with allergies and asthma. The Perfect 16 is certified by the International Association of Air Cleaner Manufacturers (IAACM) to produce absolutely no ozone. It is 100% ozone-free.

Professional, Worry-Free Installation Included Free!
IQAir handles all aspects of your installation from beginning to end - from the first contact to final system testing. You will receive worry-free, expert installation that provides you with the highest quality performance. Actual time required may vary with each residence.
The Perfect 16 Installation Process:
IQAir arranges the pre-installation home evaluation with an IQAir Authorized Installer. The IQAir Authorized Installer inspects your home's HVAC system for compatibility, tonnage (this will determine which Perfect 16 model(s) you'll need). Larger homes (over 2,500 square feet) usually have more than one HVAC system.
Upon completed evaluation, the Perfect 16 is delivered directly to the IQAir Authorized Installer. The IQAir Authorized Installer confirms Perfect 16 arrival and preps device for installation. Installation appointment is arranged by IQAir. Installation date is re-confirmed by IQAir. The IQAir Authorized Installer installs the Perfect 16(s) in your home HVAC system(s). Actual time required will vary with each residence.
Post-Installation Testing and Verification:
After the Perfect 16 is installed, the IQAir Authorized Installer will test and verify the installation with an advanced laser particle counter. The system performance will be detailed in a personalized owner's certificate.
