IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Compact Review
The IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro is almost identical to its partner model – the HealthPro Plus – except for the fact that it really is far more compact. Basically, the designers over at IQ Air AirPurifier have shaved 40% off the top of the HealthPro Plus to create the IQ Air AirPurifier Compact Air Purifier.
Interestingly, the implications of this size downgrade are relatively small. The machine still performs to the amazing standards that the larger model does, and it still incorporates the innovate and unique technology of all IQAir products. So why would you want to buy this particular model over another in the IQAir range? We wanted to find out for ourselves.
IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Compact Specifications & Features
As was the case with the alternative IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro model, the IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifier has an incredible array of filtration processes to tackle even the dirtiest of air conditions.
The HEPA filter technology on board is rated to H12 and H13 standards – which may not mean much to the general consumer, but in terms of air quality performance, it’s a huge leap forward. Basically, it means that the filter is able to remove air particles which are just 0.01 microns in size. This, with 99% efficiency, is no small feat.
Design & Style
The footprint of the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Compact Air Purifier is the same size as the HealthPro Plus – but the vertical height is where the space savings have been made. Approximately 40% of the height of the HealthPro Plus has been subtracted from this model, resulting in more of a box shape than a vertical tower.
The appearance of the machine is just as elegant though, and it definitely won’t matter where you put it, because it is surprisingly elegant and modern.
This machine gains the prestigious H12 and H13 HEPA ratings – equivalent to those given to clean rooms and biochemistry laboratories around the world. Of course, it won’t make your house in to a biochemically safe area – but the technology on board sure will get it part of the way there.
If our tests, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Compact Air Purifier was just as effective as the bigger model when cleaning the air in a room of approximately 900 square feet. The prescribed ability of the IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifier is for 1000 square feet, however we didn’t have a room that was big enough to test this claim.
Digital controls such as the filter life indicator, integrated times, and the fan speed indicator are also nice touches to show how the room is being purified.
Our Rating of IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Compact
As with the HealthPro Plus, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Compact Air Purifier scores strongly on our performance and popularity scale. We award the machine a full 5 stars for efficiency, performance, design, and effectiveness.
IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus Air Purifier Review
One of the largest home based air purifiers we have reviewed to date – the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus Air Purifier is acknowledged by industry professionals as being one of the best products for cleaning and purifying the air in the home.
With its ability to eliminate particles down to 0.01 microns in size, and its 1000 square foot coverage zone, this air purifier is certainly no joke. We got our hands on one and put it to the test in a number of different scenarios – to analyze exactly how beneficial this machine really is.
IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus Specifications & Features
Do you know how expensive it is to create a room which is almost 100% particle free? Companies spend tens of millions of dollars creating “clean rooms”, with hugely advanced technology at their fingertips.
Amazingly, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus Air Purifier uses some of the same technology as is commonly utilized in these clean rooms. This machine uses H12 and H13 graded HEPA filtration, which is able to filter out particles all the way down to 0.01 of a micron.
Furthermore, V5-Cell technology eliminates gases and odors – a phase which is especially useful to those with asthma and some chemical allergies.
Design & Style
As we already mentioned, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus Air Purifier is definitely one of the largest home air purifiers that we have reviewed. Despite this, you shouldn’t struggle to find a place for it in your home, as it is relatively modern, and doesn’t present any harsh images to the eye.
The design is effectively a tower style, as the air gets pushed through each phase in a vertical direction.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier uses HEPA rated technology – which is able to filter out 99 percent of airborne particles. There is no mention as to whether this HEPA technology is medical grade or not, but obviously if it is H12 class certified, it should be on the same, if not a higher filtration level.
In our tests, the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier performed incredibly. Our test settings presented the machine with difficult airborne particles, such as smoke, paint fumes, and mold spores. An air quality exam after the test showed that literally 99.89% of the air had been cleared.
Our Rating of IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus
There is no way we could give the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier anything less than a 5 star rating. Being able to filter particles all the way down to 0.01 microns in size, as well as the H12 HEPA technology, and the 1,000 square foot operational range, simply means that this machine is a state of the art piece of technology.
You will definitely not be disappointed with the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier if you are lucky enough to get your hands on one.
IQ Air AirPurifier AM GCX Air Cleaner Review
With over 40 years of experience in the air filtration industry, IQ Air AirPurifier is surely the leader when it comes to developing innovate and intelligent products. Of course, IQ Air AirPurifier hasn’t always provided their products to the private market. They started out as a commercial retailer, focusing on air cleaning solution for big business and large buildings.
This is actually one of the best reasons to buy an IQAir product. All that technological research has been compacted down, and is now able to be piled in to a product – just like the one we have here today – the IQAir AM GCX Air Cleaner. We took this machine for a test drive – and here are the results!
IQ Air AirPurifier AM GCX Air Cleaner Specifications & Features
Air filtration doesn’t get any more advanced than with the IQ Air AirPurifier AM GCX Air Cleaner. You’ll immediately see that the product is quite tall – much taller in fact than the HealthPro series. There is a good reason for this vertical extension. The air flowing through the machine is being forced through two further filtration steps, making it cleaner and more pure than ever before.
The IQ Air AirPurifier AM GCX Air Cleaner adds advanced gas and odor sensors, as well as new tools to fight these particles and ensure they are properly extracted from the air. Common household irritants such as cigarette smoke and cooking fumes will be absolutely no match for this machine.
Design & Style
As we already mentioned, the design of the IQ Air AirPurifier AM GCX Air Cleaner is one which is horizontally narrower than other models in the IQAir range – but quite a lot taller. The color scheme is still pleasant, and as with all IQAir products that we have reviewed, this machine definitely won’t interrupt the view or the living space – regardless of which room it is based in.
Every IQ Air AirPurifier AM GCX Air Cleaner unit which is produced goes through a rigorous testing stage before being released to you – the consumer. These tests ensure that there are no air leaks in the machine, and that the filtration steps are installed correctly. Advanced H12 and H13 HEPA technology comes standard on this model, as does the carbon filter.
To say that the IQAir AM GCX Air Cleaner is effective at reducing airborne particles would be a woeful understatement. Given the fact that this product originated from a commercial series of products, it would be fair to say that performance and effectiveness in the home is on a level which has never been experienced before. All credit has to go to the designers and engineers at IQAir for producing this miracle of an air purifier.
Our Rating of IQAir AM GCX Air Cleaner
Hopefully by now you will have been able to guess how many stars we will be awarding to the IQAir AM GCX Air Cleaner.

IQ Air AirPurifier Review
IQ Air AirPurifier – if you’re on the hunt for the air purifier that’s light-years away from the standard air purifying and cleaning units you can find in the market, this brand name easily comes to mind…AND for good reason.
Think about it, their 2 BIGGEST releases – the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro as well as the IQAir HealthPro Plus, have been tweaked and designed painstakingly to deliver quality performance for â??clean rooms’. Just in case you don’t know, these facilities and rooms are commonly found in hospitals. That should give you an idea of how clean and pure the air should be for these clean rooms.
Now that may sound a little too much for the average consumer and air purifier buyer. However, if you are living with someone who’s highly sensitive to different allergens as well as chemicals, if you’re living with someone who can’t afford to get sick, then the IQ Air AirPurifier (even at their steep prices) will give you the best bang for your buck!
It’s very common to see good and high quality air purifiers being powerful enough to remove 99.9% of particles that are larger than 0.03 micron. They may sound good enough, but the manufacturers of IQ Air AirPurifier have taken the extra mile. Their air cleaning and purifying units have been tried, tested, and proven to be effective in removing particles from the air that are as small as 0.01 micron!
IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Review
I have seen and used different air purifiers both for my home and office. However, among those air purifiers, I’d say that the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro is head and shoulders ahead of the pack. You see, this air purifier from IQ Air AirPurifier was built to be used from â??clean rooms’ – which are commonly found in hospitals. For many, this air purifying unit may prove to be more than what they really need.
But if you’re living with someone who’s highly sensitive to allergens (like me, my son is asthmatic), then the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro is exactly what you need. Now don’t be surprised by the price – this air purifying unit is about 2 or even 3 times more expensive than the common air cleaners and purifiers.
However, this is well compensated by the fact that it can clean and capture up to 100 times more particles – pollens, allergens, and more, than your usual HEPA cleaner. As for the coverage – I’m giving this purifier 2 thumbs up! Think about it – not all purifiers can handle and clean up to 1100 square feet (at maximum fan speed mind you)…some of them won’t even come close to that.
To add to that, it comes with the superior quality H12/13 class certified HEPA filter. Just in case you don’t know, these high quality HEPA filters can serve you for years…about 4 years if I’m not mistaken. That means the time and effort needed for maintenance is significantly reduced.
To show you what these HEPA filters are capable of doing, it can capture particles down to 0.01 microns and its efficiency is almost perfect! This beats other filters, which can only capture particles down to 0.03 microns, out of the water. Although such filters cost about $200 or so, with a quality and duration like that, I’d say it’s worth every penny.
The only quibble I have with the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro is that the fan is a little noisy when set on high speed. Since as mentioned earlier, my son is asthmatic, I don’t take chances and set the fan speeds at maximum. It can be a little annoying.
Overall, however, even at its steep price, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro is definitely recommended.
IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus Review
If you loved the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro air purifier, then you’ll love its upgraded version – the IQAir HealthPro Plus. Just like its predecessor, this is another superior quality air purifier.
The superior quality HEPA filters of the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro has been good enough for many of its users. However, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus takes this a step further by offering not one, not two…BUT 3 high quality air filters, which is led by the chemical and odor-trapping filter – the V5 Cell.
When it comes to complexity and efficiency, the V5 Cell Filter of IQAir HealthPro Plus is on top of the list. It takes advantage of a 5-chamber filtration method. Each of these 5 chambers contains activated carbon as well as aluminum that work hand-in-hand and very well in trapping gases and not-so-pleasant odors.
So what does it mean for you?
Simple – this means not just cleaner but better smelling air in your home and rooms. Aside from that, through different tests, it has been shown to absorb and remove well over 200 different gases and odors from the air. And if other air purifiers are having a hard time against air contaminants like dust mites and paint fumes, the IQ Air AirPurifier HealthPro Plus handles it like a piece of cake and disposes it very easily.
The V5 Cell Filter, along with the HyperHEPA and Pre-Filter can be easily removed and replaced individually. These filters are a little pricey compared to other filters. After all, you get what you pay for and these are high quality filters. However, the priciest among them is undoubtedly the V5 Cell Filter.
This is compensated, however, by the fact that they can last for more or less 2 years. To top this off, you can easily tell that you need a replacement filter all thanks to the built-in electronic filter monitoring system.
There are different researches and studies conducted concerning the performance and quality of IQ Air AirPurifier especially the HealthPro Plus. And the result? It has been proven that they’re effective when it comes to alleviating symptoms caused by allergies, asthma, and other chemical sensitivities. And my experience as an ordinary consumer reflects these findings.
The only minor issue I have with it is that at 35 pounds, this air purifier is a little bulky compared to others. However, for an air purifier that far surpasses the rest of the pack, this is a very minor inconvenience I’m more than willing to ignore.
