IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifiers Rating and Review Chart

IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifiers offer top-rated HEPA air filtration of ultra fine particulates. However, they lack any ability to filter out the all-important chemical fumes and gaseous compounds...the major contributors to health damage associated with indoor air pollution.

Out of the superior HealthPro series, IQAir's Compact is my lowest rated at 91%, though it is still superior in solid particle capture compared to other non-IQAir models.

IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Cleaner

Superior HEPA Air Filtration of Ultra-fine Particles

IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Cleaner

This model is included in IQAir's "New Edition" improved line, which means the best air cleaners just got even better, with: 

  • 38% longer filter life
  • 25% more clean air delivery
  • 32% less sound output
Overall Rating (out of 100%)

► 91% Excellent HEPA Air Purifier for Removal of Solid Particulates Only (no chemical gas filtration)

Price of HealthPro Compact Air Cleaners  $799
Model# IQ AP HPC 
Overall IQ Air Purifier Review Summary  Please keep in mind the best home air purifiers efficiently filter BOTH Gases AND Particles from indoor air, so I recommend air cleaners that include HEPA and Gas/Odor filter stages...  

More compact design, a lower price point, and excellent HEPA filtration of most household particles.  But a major drawback to this model and the reason it is rated lower than the others in the HealthPro series is the fact that this model has no option for gas or odor filtration.  Without chemical gas filtration capability, it means a particularly dangerous category of indoor air pollutants found in most homes (Volatile Organic Compounds) will pass through this unit and remain in your air as an inhalation hazard.

2 Stages of Air Filtration Removes Nearly 100% of Common Household Indoor Air Pollutants in the Solid Phase - Including Many of the Particles that are known triggers of Asthma and Allergy symptoms, such as:

  •  Mold Spores
  • Pollen
  • Pet Dander from cats, birds, dogs, ect.
  • House Dust Mite Allergens
  • Cockroach Allergens
  • Ultra-fine Particles such as Viruses, Bacteria, and Combustion Particles
  • Controls Some Tobacco Smoke Particles

Please keep in mind no room air cleaner will totally compensate for someone smoking tobacco products indoors. The volumes of gases and particles produced by indoor smoker(s) will overwhelm even the best home air purifier filter technologies. Also, NO home air purifier will remove toxic indoor surface cigarette residue contamination (referred to as "Third-hand Smoke" Residues).

How IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifiers Work

  1. The powerful centrifugal fan pulls air into the unit through the dual arches at floor level. Triple sealed design assures no air leakage or filter by-passing as air begins to pass through the highly advanced filter stages inside the HealthPro Compact.

  2. Air first passes through the advanced Pre-Filter where course and fine particles are removed very efficiently. This preliminary filter stage also helps to extend the life of the subsequent HEPA filter, and is certified to remove 99% of 5 micron sized particles or larger (excellent filtration efficiency for a pre-filter).

  3. The powerful fan then pushes the pre-filtered air through the highly advanced HyperHEPA filter for clean-room quality removal of nearly 100% of any remaining ultra-fine particles. Certified to removed at least 99.97% of 0.3 micron or larger particles (passes world's most stringent HEPA filter test).

  4. Air purified of nearly all particles is then releases evenly and quietly back into the room via the specially designed 320 degree EvenFlow diffuser, which cuts down on noise and concentrated air drafts.
