OVERVIEW: Many consider the IQAIR Healthpro Air Purifier to be the Cadillac of Air Purifiers (of course given the problems with GM it may not be the best reference). It has a list of awards and good reviews across the board. It is also the most expensive model in the industry for home use which means that the online air purifier dealers (like allergybuyersclub) promote (and push) the unit because it offers the most profit. But it begs the question: Is it really worth $899? especially when replacement filters will cost you $250-300?

IQAIR Healthpro Air Purifier Video Review


Stages of Purification: 2 or 3

Now let's take a look at the filters and technology for cleaning the air. The IQAIR Healthpro air purifier has 2 stages (3 if you add the Carbon Chamber for another $100)

Stage 1 Hyper-Hepa - A large HEPA filter removes a high percentage of particles from the air. The biggest and fattest HEPA on the market

Stage 2 Pre-Filter - The pre-filter looks more like a smaller version of the HEPA filter than most prefilters. Almost half the size of the HEPA.

Stage 3 (Optional) Carbon Chamber - adding the Carbon Chamber makes the IQAIR Healthpro the "Healthpro Plus"

Conclusion

The 3 stages of purification are very well done (HEPA, Carbon, Pre-filter) although it excludes many technologies that can kill germs, bacteria, mold, viruses, etc. It’s HEPA filter is one of the largest you'll find – however it is also one of the most expensive to replace. It will cost you to run this unit.

There are two conditions by which I recommend the HealthPro and that is; 1) you have a serious lung condition and 2) money is no object. With serious lung conditions you don't want to play around with less expensive models - even if they can do 80% of what IQAIR can do for 1/3 the price. But you will end up paying $340-500 a year to maintain this air purifier.

If you have mild to moderate allergies, or simply want cleaner, healthier air, then I would recommend you buy 2 air purifiers with more technology (UV, negative ions, etc.) that can also handle germs, bacteria, viruses, etc. for the same (or less) money than 1 IQAIR Purifier. It is a great air purifier, but you're paying top dollar for something that is Swiss made. nothing against the Swiss - it's just that the labor costs are more, and some of the technology is a bit outdated (ie: "brush motor")
