The IQAir HealthPro Plus room air purifier has received Consumers Digest’s prestigious “Best Buy” award in the Premium category for the 5th time.

The HealthPro Plus was featured most recently in the publication in an article titled “Breathe Easy: High-Performance Air Purifiers.” The award marked the fifth time in a row that this top rated air purifier received a Best Buy award.

Consumers Digest said the HealthPro Plus remains the only air purifier that it found to have a combination of a 10-year warranty, six fan speeds, and four-stage filtration. Consumers Digest evaluated the HealthPro Plus in its New Edition configuration, which delivers up to 25% more clean air, up to 38% longer filter life, and 32% less sound than previous HealthPro Plus models.

What makes the HealthPro Plus worthy?

The “Best Buy” designation is based on performance, ease and cost of maintenance, quality of construction and the coverage area that the air purifier cleans. The Consumers Digest staff conducts hands-on evaluation and research to identify exceptional values. During their research, they found the HealthPro Plus to be “ideal for allergy sufferers” and praised its ability to clean air in large spaces.

IQAir’s air cleaners are the only HyperHEPA air cleaners made for the residential market. HyperHEPA is the highest standard of HEPA filtration. While most HEPA air purifiers can only filter fine particles down to 0.3 microns in size, IQAir’s patented HyperHEPA technology can filter particles down to 0.003 microns with a guaranteed minimum efficiency of over 99%. HyperHEPA offers 100 times the air cleaning efficiency of traditional HEPA air cleaners.

As the Consumers Digest reviewers write, “The IQAir HealthPro Air Purifier is a step up from most of the air purifiers we’ve reviewed…for homes with people who are highly sensitive to allergens or where there is someone who is ill and can’t afford to catch an illness from another family member, IQAir’s HealthPro may be worth it.”

Consumers Digest also cautions readers in the article that there are many air-purifying devices being sold today that do not live up to their advertising claims. Many manufacturers use gimmicks like UV light disinfection, negative ionization, and particle “destruction,” all of which can introduce even more dangerous substances into your air.

IQAir makes the world’s only certified HyperHEPA home air cleaners. Each HealthPro Plus is individually tested and certified at the factory to make sure that the air cleaner shipped to the consumer performs exactly as promised.
