IQAir’s production facility is located in Switzerland near the shores of Lake Constance, 60 miles east of Zurich. By using the highest quality components and cutting edge technology, a dedicated team of air quality experts, engineers and skilled craftsmen have lead IQAir® to be able to build the finest air cleaning products in the world.

We lead, others follow. In 1963, IQAir introduced the first home air cleaning system and started an industry that we continue to lead today. Our Swiss-based design and manufacturing team produced the first home air purifiers capable of achieving a “0” reading (no particles coming out of the air outlet) using sophisticated laser particle counters.
In addition to extraordinary research, development and design, IQAir is committed to reaching new levels of manufacturing precision and excellence. We manufacture all IQAir systems in our own state-of-the-art production facility in Switzerland. By using the highest quality components, a dedicated team of skilled craftspeople, and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, we continue to build the best value and highest quality air cleaning products in the world.

Only IQAir delivers unrivaled performance and superior value.
IQAir systems are more powerful than any other air purifiers around, yet they are energy efficient and cost effective. While less expensive air filters only last weeks or months, our HyperHEPA filters last up to four years under normal conditions. While other air purifiers begin to lose their effectiveness the moment you turn them on, our systems actually retain or increase effectiveness over time. And our room air purifiers feature a sophisticated control panel that alerts you when it’s time to change filters, and not a moment earlier.
IQAir air purifiers feature the safest, healthiest and most effective way to clean the air. Our industry-leading technology is recommended by government agencies and leading health organizations. IQAir systems produce no ozone, ions, chemicals, UV or any other dangerous byproducts. We never take chances with your family’s health, and we always provide superior technology and value. That is why IQAir is the smartest choice.
When it comes to performance, value and reliability, the only decision you have to make is selecting the right IQAir system for your needs.
The revolutionary IQAir HealthPro Plus is designed with a four-stage filtration process that cleans the full spectrum of airborne pollutants.
1 PreMax Pre-Filter
Air is drawn in at the bottom of the system and into the pre-filter. The PreMax pre-filter eliminates coarse and fine particles such as pollen, pet dander and mold spores.
2 & 3 V5-Cell Advanced Gas & Odor Control
The two-stage V5-Cell gas & odor filter uses dual media to filter a wider spectrum of volatile organic compounds (the cause of odors) and other harmful chemical vapors. Granular activated carbon adsorption and pelletized chemisorption work together to go beyond conventional activated carbon filters found in ordinary air purifiers.
4 HyperHEPA Filter
The unequaled IQAir HyperHEPA filter eliminates fine and ultrafine particles, including bacteria, viruses and highway exhaust particles. The clean air is then expelled through the EvenFlowTM diffuser and distributed throughout the room.
The IQAir® GCX Series is very versatile and incredibly powerful. Four specialized gas phase media filter cartridges, address a wide range of needs. The IQAir® GCX Series is perfect for hospitals, laboratories, commercial and light industrial environments. Just like a professional gas mask, IQAir® maximizes filter efficiency for different gases and odors by offering customized filter cartridges. While gas and odor control are the primary strengths of these systems, the 'GCX Series' also offers excellent filtration efficiency for particles.
The IQAir® GCX MultiGas air purifier is the most popular model in the 'GCX Series' for commercial-grade applications. This model specifically purifies the air for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) needs.

The HealthPro Plus has been awarded Reviewboard Magazine’s EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARD “BEST OF THE BEST” for two consecutive years in a row. Reviewboard Magazine has reviewed more than 22,000 products and the HealthPro Plus was the first product the magazine had ever selected twice for this award.
Reviewboard Magazine also named the Perfect 16 their 2006 Product of the Year. Reviewboard’s product reviews are read each year by 110 million readers in 73 countries. Reviewboard’s Editor-in-Chief, Phillip Ferreira, says “the Perfect 16 is the most effective air cleaning system we have ever tested.“

Consumer Search reviews the reviewers and says the IQAir HealthPro Plus “is the best option for people with severe allergies.” After looking at the many product reviews that have been done on the HealthPro Plus, Consumer Search said that IQAir is clearly #1.

In 2006, and again in 2008, Esquire selected IQAir to provide their revolutionary whole-house air purification system, the Perfect 16. "They not only wanted to create a house of breathtaking beauty and dimension, they also wanted to create one of America's healthiest homes with state-of-the-art air purification", says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir North America. They chose the Perfect 16 because it exceeds MERV 16 - the highest level of filtration recognized by the American Society of Heating and Refrigeration Engineers (ASHRAE). The result is that the air in the home is virtually free of dust, pollen, allergens, and other indoor air pollutants.
The Perfect 16 is the first whole-house air cleaning system to achieve a MERV16 rating – the very highest MERV rating possible. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. The MERV rating system was designed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and it establishes how well an air filtration system 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.
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 IQAir HealthPro Plus is 100% ozone-free. It is certified by the IAACM (International Association of Air Cleaner Manufacturers) to produce absolutely no ozone. Ozone is a lung irritant that is emitted from ionic air cleaners. Even small amounts of ozone are undesirable for allergy and asthma sufferers. The Perfect 16 is certified by the International Association of Air Cleaner Manufacturers (IAACM) to produce absolutely no ozone. It is 100% ozone-free.
