When it comes to high quality air filters, the IQ Air HealthPro Plus takes the cake! This baby reigns supreme as one of the top rated air purifiers in the industry. Its supremacy stems from the revolutionary HyperHEPA filtration system which is proven to capture particles down to 0.003 microns in size; the smallest particle that exists. This is 100 times smaller than what a normal HEPA can filter out – 0.3 microns. These ultra-fine particles are actually the most harmful to your health and represent 90% of the air pollution we breathe. I am giving this air purifier the title of best for the home because it covers up to 1125 square feet which is on the higher end for most air filters.

SUMMARY OF REVIEWS:
- Steadily gets over 4 out of 5 stars from reviews – constantly a top rated air purifier.
- City dwellers that had smoggy or dusty atmospheres in their homes consistently report drastic improvements in air quality and breathability claiming that they wake up feeling less stuffy.
- Many people claim that their allergies drastically improve within 1 hour of turning on the unit.
- People with multiple chemical sensitivity have claimed to see great results with this air filter.
- Very quiet compared to other air purifiers of similar size.
- Setting up the unit is very intuitive and quick (can have unit up and running within 10 minutes).
- OVERALL: People say that the unit functions amazingly and notice drastic improvements in allergies, breathing and chemical sensitivity. Its quiet and easy to setup!
- The pre filter is supposed to last 18 months and the V5 gas filter is supposed to have a lifespan of 2 years. Some people that use the filters constantly have said that they need replacing just shy of a year.
- A small number of people mentioned a little bit of a paint/chemical smell that they noticed coming from the machine a few weeks after starting it. After doing some research this was apparently coming from the V5-Cell filter. It has a charcoal filter that constantly is soaking up odors regardless of whether the machine is on or off – this includes during storage and shipping.
- People contacted IQAir support about the issue and received replacement filters, so the situation was rectified.
- OVERALL: High price. There is a very slim chance the charcoal V5 filter may have accumulated some storage stank (but can be replaced). There are 3 filters that need replacing, potentially after 1 year.
- 3 filters may seem like a lot, but that is why this air purifier is able to remove so much pollution from the air.
