Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Exceptional filtering action
The HEPA filter used in this purifier is one of the best available. It can trap 99.5% particles as small as 0.003 microns, while other purifiers can only do that with 0.3 micron-sized particles.
Pro Has a timer schedule
You can schedule the unit to run only on specified days and certain hours. With this option, you can eliminate useless running and save both energy and filter life. It's also useful for light sleepers, as the unit can be set to turn on automatically on low speed in the middle of the night when your sleep is at its deepest.
Pro Status information is easy to read
Instead of the numerous LCD status lights found in other purifiers, this unit has an LCD screen that shows real-time data regarding the operation of the purifier. The screen gives you info about the current airflow, power level, and filter status, among other useful stuff. This screen is easier to understand and more precise than indicator lights.
Pro Hand-made wood casing available
You can order it with a hand-made wood casing, which can be convenient if you have antique furniture you want it to match with. This extra will bump the price to $2500.
Con Very loud at high speeds
It can get very loud when running at its highest speed, being capable of reaching 70dB noise level.
Con Expensive maintenance
The filters are expensive, so it is critical to change them only when needed and take proper care of the pre-filter. The HEPA filter costs a whopping $200 and the carbon filter costs around 100$.
Con Can't handle intense smoking well
The IQAir Healthpro system can’t withstand heavy tobacco smoke. The filter’s carbon granules will quickly become overly saturated, losing their effectiveness.
