Which IQ Air Purifier Is Best?


  When looking for an IQ air purifier, you are going to want to find the best model to fill all of your purification needs. Therefore, you will want to look at these models and figure out exactly what their strengths and weaknesses are before you commit to a single unit.

Using an IQ air purifier review sheet to help you figure out which one might be best could help you make that decision much more easily than otherwise.

Each of the units that IQ Air provides will be some of the strongest air purification systems that you could hope to find. All of the units use HyperHEPA filter systems, which means that they take the traditional HEPA technology which is known to provide such great air coverage and they have improved upon it.

Instead of merely capturing particles as small as 0.3 microns, as the traditional HEPA will, a HyperHEPA filter can capture at least 99.5% of everything in the air that is 0.003 microns small. This is a phenomenal rate.

Each of the models will also include a pre-filter, which can help to trap all larger particles and contaminates before they reach the HyperHEPA filter. The more that can be removed before reaching the main filter, the longer a life your main filter will have. That's why it's important to have a feature which can remove the largest objects which can often damage the filter.

Other forms of the IQ air purifiers will have features which help to remove unwanted gases and odors. This filter will commonly come as a V-Cell, which has activated carbon and chemisorption techniques to remove all impurities that can be found in the air.

All of these will combine in different models, making an IQ air purifier a smart option for anyone needing the safest levels of quality air in their home.
