About this item
- Unrivaled Performance: The HealthPro Plus is the #1 Rated room air purifier for homes, offices, schools, hospitals, industrial, and commercial sites. Has received more top reviews and awards than any other air purifier. Chosen by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority for both SARS-CoV-1 & SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Superior airflow with the 320-degree EvenFlow Diffuser efficiently filters all the air in large rooms and bedrooms numerous times an hour.
- Medical Grade H14 HyperHEPA Filter: Proven and certified by a third-party testing lab to remove and trap 99.995% of all airborne particles down to 0.003 microns, the HealthPro Plus supplies unequaled protection against bacteria, dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, smoke from wildfires, odors, harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, and more. True HEPA filtration.
- Long Lasting & Cost-Efficient Filters: Three different filters clean the air four different ways. Pre-filter traps coarse particles. Activated carbon adsorption and pelletized chemisorption filter odors and gasses. HyperHEPA traps fine and ultrafine particles. Long-lasting filters – 16 to18 months for the pre-filter, 2 years for the gas and odor filter, 3 years, 9 months to 4 years, 2 months for the HyperHEPA filter - helps save money over the air cleaner’s lifetime, and more eco-friendly.
- Energy Saving and Ultra-quiet Air Cleaner: The HealthPro Plus emits ultra-quiet, low-decibel sound across all four fan speeds. The fan-in-center design places the motor between sound-reducing filters. Doubled-walled housing limits sound. Rubber suspension pads isolate motor vibration from the air cleaner housing. EvenFlow Diffuser deflects sound back into the system. Powerful fan uses only as much electricity as a conventional light bulb, amounting to pennies per day to operate.
- Certified Performance: Each HealthPro Plus air purifier is made in Switzerland and individually tested for total system efficiency. If the system is not delivering 99.97% cleaner air or better, it does not get shipped. The results of the tests are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance. Every system comes with a 10-year limited warranty. Direct purchases from the manufacturer will require a signature to acknowledge receipt upon delivery. CARB EO # G-10-059.

HealthPro Plus Award-Winning Medical Grade Air Purifier

Want to step into a smoke-filled chamber with noxious chemicals without protective gear? Probably not – but that’s exactly what IQAir President Frank Hammes did, and he brought along a HealthPro Plus air purifier.
HealthPro Plus: Medical-Grade Air Cleaning For Any Room
What makes IQAir’s patented HyperHEPA air filtration technology superior to other air filtration technologies?
HyperHEPA filters remove airborne contaminants by trapping them on filter media, so they can’t be released back into the air. Other technologies, such as ozone, ionization, and UV light can actually add harmful pollutants into the air.
What is the difference between HEPA and HyperHEPA filtration?
The gold standard for air filtration, HyperHEPA builds on the HEPA model to create even more effective filtration. HyperHEPA removes 99.5% of particles down to 0.003 microns, 100x smaller than the 0.3 micron particles that HEPA filters can remove.
Can a HealthPro Plus help protect me from viruses?
IQAir’s HyperHEPA technology filters biological contaminants, bacteria, and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. IQAir was used by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority to help staff and patients during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
Can a HealthPro Plus help with my asthma & allergy symptoms?
The HealthPro’s medical-grade air filtration is effective at filtering asthma triggers and other allergens from the air. This is why the HealthPro Plus got the Seal of Approval from PTPA (Parent Tested/Parent Approved).

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First, the important thing. You probably have the barbarous allergies that I share, or you wouldn’t be considering this. I’ve tried about a dozen air purifiers over the years. My advice to others is that you want either the Austin HealthMate type, or the IQAir type. If you want a unit that you can put into a large-sized suitcase and take on an airplane, you want the Austin HealthMate Jr. (I own one for that purpose). For a big room room, maybe you want the full HealthMate. They have two defects: a) no casters or handles, meaning you *lug* the thing; b) all three filters – prefilter, gas, and fine particle – are in a single torus-shaped object. Meaning, if one of them gets filled up, you have to replace all three. On the flip side, they’re cheaper than IQAir filters. One HealthMate Jr replacement filter costs a tad less than the IQAir HyperHepa alone.
On the other hand, if your allergies are such that you just plain require absolutely clean air (such as, you have bronchiectasis), especially of mold, then you want the IQAir. They advertise that the unit puts out “chemically pure” air, and I believe it. And you can move a LOT of air through this per minute, up to 300 cubic feet. That’s all the air in a 16x20 room with a 10-foot ceiling in ten minutes. Of course, it’s noisy, but on the high settings so are the Austin units. It puts out air suitable for a surgical theater, according to an HVAC guy I know.
And now, the quirks.
1) If you want the gas filtration option, you want to buy the HealthPro Plus, but do yourself a favor: order it without the V5 gas filter. Then order a separate V5 gas filter. Otherwise, they’ll ship the unit with a V5 filter installed, and during shipping a bunch of the potassium permanganate will shake out into the unit. Your helpful IQAir phone representative will, like any engineer anywhere, tell you that this is no problem, the HyperHEPA will filter it all out. Don’t believe it. I had to evacuate my house. Potassium permanganate is not at all good for your bronchial tubes, and contrary to their claims, the HyperHEPA doesn’t catch it all.
2) Because, in a fit of engineer’s hubris, they build the unit without any gaskets at all. None. Now I’m sure they engineered the thing very well indeed, but we’re talking about air here, which is notoriously slippery stuff. And maybe they’re right. All I know is that sometimes, after several months, the air coming out starts to bug me. So I replace the lower filter, the PreMax, and the problem goes away. Now the PreMax sits above the “coarse dust” prefilter (which you should buy as an add-on), and below the V5 and the HyperHEPA, so if the unit truly did not allow air and particulate to escape, this should be impossible. It’s possible. Don’t let them tell you different.
3) The wheels are cheesy cheap plastic that become loose and fall off their spindles. You can also remove the spindles and let the unit sit flush to the floor, with no wheels, but once you’ve inserted the spindles, you’ll need a large screwdriver blade or chisel and some luck to pry them loose. Now THAT fit they engineered to perfection! You can also buy luxury “replacement” wheels, which cost me $25 instead of $15 for a replacement set of the original cheese wheels. Really? On a $900 unit, you save ten bucks on the wheels you ship with it? Come on, man. That’s like selling a Camaro with truck wheels, and the chrome jobbies are a replacement part only, for another hundred bucks.
4) Finally, the top has louvers which only point straight out. I would prefer they were angled UP, so as to push exhaust higher and stir the air in the upper reaches of the room. Also, when it’s next to me in a dodgy room it would blow on my face instead of my rib cage. I have, with some thought, twisted together some wires and threaded them through the louvers, so that I can lay a ruler across them that angles the airflow upward, but repeat along with me: come on, man.
With respect to the coarse dust filter, you can clean and re-use these with your vacuum cleaner’s crevice tool. Just hold the tip of the crevice tool at a VERY SHARP ANGLE to the coarse dust filter, and drag it along. About this angle:
Crevice tool -> /| <- coarse dust filter
Otherwise, after a couple of weeks the unit again starts causing me trouble, I guess because some of the dirt accumulating on the coarse dust filter gets knocked loose by incoming crud, and ends up right back in the air. That’s my theory. I just know after a couple weeks, I have to clean or replace that filter, and clean is a lot cheaper than replace. I have also tried some cheaper aftermarket coarse-dust filters, NOT from IQAir, and trust me: get the one from IQAir and vacuum them from time to time. They are really good filters, which I guess is why they cost more.
So, you will get every bit of what you pay for with this unit, you will get some quirks, if you ship your unit with the V5 gas filter installed you may get a frightening constricting feeling in your chest if you don’t thoroughly clean out the loose potassium permanganate, and you will get a few lessons in why you don’t let engineers make marketing decisions. But you’ll be glad you bought this, just as I am for having bought two.
It’s not a perfect world, I guess.
EDIT 2020: I can't call this the best any longer. The Oransi EJ-120 is as good as, if better, at filtration, with none of the design oddities of the IQAir. Filters last me 2 to 3 months, so the annual cost is a bit cheaper as well. Also, the Medify MA-40 is working just as well for me at a fraction of the cost, but for a small room. I haven't tried their larger model yet. So either Oransi or Medify looks to be a sound choice.
The first several operational hours can have some hospital-like smell, but it soon goes away in subsequent hours.
The noise level at full speed is comparable to a traditional hair dryer.
IQAir HealthPro Plus can beat Dyson out of the market if the company significantly improves its remote effectiveness and adopt a more intuitive user interface. I always have to be right next to the unit and aim my remote at the display to control the machine. It makes having the remote almost pointless.
The user interface is not backlit, which is difficult to read without an external light source. I often had to read the manual to recall some control actions.
There isn't a way to run the machine on a temporary timer, as far as I know. You can schedule runs throughout the week though.
I'm not sure if I need to re-enter my current time into the machine after I replug it elsewhere in my home.
