IQAir is a Switzerland company that is specialized on producing air purifiers with advanced filtration technology. Its purifiers are safe for anyone who are too sensitive to dust or suffer from allergy/asthma.
The main difference between the IQAir GC and IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifiers is that:
- the first is #1 at removing household odors, multiple chemical sensitivities;
- the HealthPro is #1 at removing allergens so is for allergies & asthma.
The ProPlus is also a bit more lightweight.
Features they share
There are not so many differences between these models. But what about similar features?
- Similar design
- HyperHEPA filtration
- Area coverage
- Fan speed modes
- Noise level of 69 dB
- Power consumption
- Filter replacement indicator
- Deliver 300 cfm of airflow on the max fan speed.
Both of these models having the same power (215 W) and voltage (120V). Also have the same area coverage of 1,125 sqft (104 sq m) so they are suitable for big rooms.
The number of fan speeds is 6 for both.
Each model has a timer and filtrates the indoor air via HyperHEPA filtration. You know when to change the filter via a replacement indicator.
What is hyper HEPA filtration
HyperHEPA Filter has a purpose: control of fine & ultra-fine particulate matter, bacteria, viruses, molds, and pollens.
IQAir's revolutionary HyperHEPA filtration system is proven to capture particles 100 times smaller, down to 0.003 microns. It's 10 times smaller than a virus. These ultra-fine particles are actually the most harmful to your health and represent 90% of the air pollution we breathe.
IQAir's HyperHEPA filters have been type-tested and classified in accordance with the world's most stringent HEPA filter test: EN1822. The test shows that IQAir's HyperHEPA filter not only meets the HEPA standard but that it exceeds it.
Many high-tech manufacturers such as Intel already require their filter suppliers to provide them with EN1822 certification. Also, many hospitals insist on this test to have been passed to ensure a filter's suitability and integrity for airborne infection control in critical environments.
Average filter life is approximately 4 years.
The GC MultiGas combines HyperHEPA particle filtration with powerful gas and odor filtration. Offers 2 Air Changes an Hour (ACH) for 1125 sq ft room.
This is #1 Rated room air purifier for MCS, odors & smoke.
The GC MultiGas features the best media in the industry combined with superior filter design to provide an unequaled level of protection against gases, odors, and chemicals.
The purifier combines HyperHEPA filtration with gas and odor filtration.
The GC MultiGas is proven and certified to filter at least 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist.
The Gc MultiGas catches even the smallest particles exist
The four disposable gas-phase filter cartridges of the GC MultiGas feature 12 lbs. (5.4 kg.) of the highest-grade activated carbon.
IQAir also does not use zeolite, another less effective and less expensive filtration medium. The cylindrical shape of the GC MultiGas cartridges allows for optimal contact between the air and the filtration media while offering very low air restriction. Meanwhile, post-filters wrap each cylinder, preventing any media dust from being released while further improving overall system efficiency.
Patented triple-sealing technology eliminates air leakage making the purifier safe for everyone
- Filter media is 100% sealed into the filter frame
- 3D UltraSeal perfectly seals the filter frame to the housing
- Individual seals ensure all is airtight.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier is the top-rated air purifier on the market for allergies and asthma. Get better-than-HEPA air filtration for large areas up to 1,125 square feet with the HealthPro Plus.
IQAir New Edition HealthPro air purifiers rule supreme as the top-rated air purifier in the industry. IQAir's revolutionary HyperHEPA filtration system is proven to capture particles to 0.003 microns; 10 times smaller than a virus. These ultra-fine particles are actually the most harmful to your health and represent 90% of the air pollution we breathe.
With the IQAir HealthPro Plus, air travels up from the bottom of the unit and through an advanced 3-stage filtration system:
1. Pre-Max Pre-Filter
Eliminate micro-particles like pollen, dust, pet dander, and mold spores.
2. V-5 Cell Gas & Odor Filter
It uses granular activated carbon to dissolve volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This filter also destroys harmful airborne chemicals like formaldehyde.
3. HyperHEPA Filter
The unequaled HyperHEPA filter eliminates fine and ultra-fine particles like bacteria, viruses, and smoke particles. Remarkably, allergen particles that measure as small as 0.003 microns are filtered out at a rate of 99.5% - far exceeding HEPA performance standards.
It also has a sealed system. IQAir’s 3D ultra seal boosts air cleaning efficiency by ensuring a 100% airtight seal between the filter frames and housing, creating total system efficiency.
