Why IQAir Perfect 16 Whole House Air Purification System?
100% Healthy technology
IQAir HEPA filtration technology is the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air. Only IQAir is proven through rigorous independent testing to effectively filter the air down to the 0.003 micron level. We do it without using unsafe or unproven technologies such as ozone generation, ionization, ultraviolet radiation, chemicals or other unhealthy byproducts. In addition, IQAir’s Perfect 16 achieves an unrivaled level of filtration without risky electrostatic charges that can waste energy and produce ozone that irritates your lungs. Why risk your health on less effective gimmicks when the HEPA filtration of the Perfect 16 offers proven protection without harmful byproducts?
Swiss Made is more than just a label of origin. It is a sign of outstanding quality, uniqueness, superior design, innovation, precision and reliability. In an industry where most air cleaners don’t meet manufacturers’ claims, we test and certify each and every IQAir air purification system. All our manufacturing is done in our own state-of-the-art Swiss production facility on the pristine shores of the Lake of Constance. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of highly skilled and extensively trained craftsmen and women, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined over almost 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air purifiers in the world. That’s how serious we are about quality.
How it works
The Perfect 16 whole-house air purifier is seamlessly retrofitted into your home’s existing heating and/or air conditioning system. It silently and efficiently cleans all of the air in your home up to 125 times per day.
Air is drawn through your home’s return grill, typically located in a common area such as a hallway or living room.
The air is filtered through four pleated micro-fiber filtration panels arranged in a “double-V” configuration with more than 170 square feet of filter media. This allows the Perfect 16 to deliver up to 50 times more filtration power than ordinary filtration systems.
Clean air is passed through your heating and cooling system and supplied back into your home.
The Perfect 16 is an energy-efficient marvel. It outperforms other air purifiers by far, but uses absolutely no electricity. And while electrical consumption is an important part of the story, there’s even more. The Perfect 16 has one of the lowest air restriction levels in the industry, so it keeps your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently without forcing it to push air harder. In fact, the Perfect 16 actually improves the performance of your heating and cooling system when compared to conventional air cleaners. As a result, the Perfect 16 can lower your energy bill while attaining a MERV 16 rating, the highest filtration rating possible.
Ultra-low air restriction
Ultra-low restriction plays a key role in making your Perfect 16 system energy efficient (see above). This unprecedented level of air filtration sophistication is accomplished through the use of state-of-the-art advanced microfiber filtration technology. Conventional whole-house air cleaners can impede the air flow of your central heating and air conditioning system by as much as 50%. Filter fibers in the Perfect 16 are 10 times thinner than standard air filters. Air easily passes through the Perfect 16’s V2 filter design, even though the actual surface area contains up to 50 times more filtration media than typical filters. Meanwhile, the ultra-fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier to pollution particles. The result is an ultra-efficient and ultra-low restriction filter that sets a new standard for whole-house air purifiers.
