How it works
The Perfect 16 whole-house air purifier is seamlessly retrofitted into your home's existing heating and/or air conditioning (HVAC) system. Together the HVAC system and the Perfect 16 clean the air in your building up to 125 times per day.
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 performs on the highest level. 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 a state-of-the-art manufacturing processes refined over almost 50 years, IQAir is able to build the finest air cleaning products in the world. That’s how serious we are about quality.
100% Healthy technology
The Perfect 16 is not only incredibly effective in cleaning the air, but it also does so by only using the safest, healthiest and most reliable air cleaning technology 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 not use unsafe or unproven technologies such as electronic air cleaning, 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 charging plates that can waste energy and produce ozone that irritates your lungs. Why risk your health when the Perfect 16 offers proven protection without harmful byproducts?
Energy efficient marvel
The Perfect 16 is an energy-efficient marvel. It outperforms other air purifiers, while using no additional electricity. The Perfect 16 has one of the lowest air restriction levels in the industry, so it keeps a site's HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently without forcing it to push air harder. In fact, the Perfect 16 actually improves the performance of a heating and cooling system when compared to conventional air cleaners. As a result, the Perfect 16 can lower energy bills while attaining a MERV 16 rating, the highest filtration rating possible.
Ultra-low air restriction
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 fibers 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.
