IQAir HealthPro Plus Review – Complete Review 2022

Do you suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems? You may want to consider purchasing an IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. This device is designed to clean the air in your home and improve your overall health. In this comprehensive review, we will discuss the features of the IQAir HealthPro Plus and help you decide if it is the right air purifier for you!

Design

The IQAir HealthPro+ has a smart design with excellent features that make it stand out in the market. A 28-inch air purifier. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the best air purifiers on today’s market. It has an elegant stainless steel body, followed by a bottom-to-top flow structure and optional wheels for mobility purposes if needed!

The IQAir Health Plus has a bottom-to-top airflow with an intake vent at the base that draws in polluted air via filters and releases out from its 320-degree diffuser outlet up high. This makes for a quiet, evenly distributing filtration process without any wasted energy or noise because of how they’ve designed it! On top, there’s also a 4-key touchpad display where you can check your progress while on treatment, as well as 16 characters 2-line LCD screen.

Though the LCD display is nice and big, it shows multiple settings. The small red standby light doesn’t seem necessary when you can just see if your device has power by checking whether or not its LED lights up in a dark room–and luckily, this one does! It also makes sense that three different filters have their own unique colors because then we know exactly how long each filter lasts until they turn off. And who wants four flashing lamp things staring at them while trying to sleep? the lights can’t be turned off.

All materials used in constructing this device come from Switzerland, which makes them durable enough and able to provide high-quality filtration with their Swiss-made design – not just internally but also externally as well where you’ll find 3D Ultra Seal Technology preventing escaping outside airflow without going through three separate processes altogether: With 3D Ultra Seal technology, filter media is 100% sealed in the frame and knife-edge–in groove joints are guaranteed between them. This ensures airtight housing for your family’s safety!

Usability

The IQAir Health Plus has a bottom-to-top airflow with an intake vent at the base that draws in polluted air via filters and releases out from its 320-degree diffuser outlet up high. This makes for a quiet, evenly distributing filtration process without any wasted energy or noise because of how they’ve designed it! On top, there’s also a 4-key touchpad display where you can check your progress while on treatment, as well as 16 characters 2-line LCD screen.

The signature locking arm on the device provides an excellent seal to keep all dirt and dust away from getting inside. It is also easy enough for anyone with little expertise in technology to help maintain it! There are two different colors available – light grey or white—so you’re guaranteed both style and practicality when choosing which one best suits yourself and your home decor preferences.

The IQAir HealthPro Plus is a powerful air purifier for large rooms and extra-large spaces. It’s big enough with 35 pounds in weight, ten less than its brother – GC Multi Gas! Sadly we can’t find any other model that weighs less, so this might be too heavy if you’re looking to move it around yourself or use four casters which come included when buying one from packaging material anyways.

Filters

The efficiency of the HyperHEPA filter is 99.97%. In other words, it removes 9998 out of every 10k particles that go through its channels! The IQAir’s thicker and contains more filtration media (fibers) than a standard HEPA but doesn’t do any better at catching smaller particulates, so be sure to take advantage of our wide variety selection when choosing your next air cleaner.

The PreMax filter can reduce most of the large objects in airborne pollutants and protect your subsequent filters by removing everything from smoke to bacteria.

Its granulated activated carbon layer will eliminate any VOCs, odors, or other harmful chemicals that may be present while protecting you against fine powders such as formaldehyde with a hyper-focused HEPA-style filtration system!

Pelletized chemisorption -With the activation of a special chemical process, harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde are broken down and removed from the air.

Gas Filter

nowadays, Gas filters are very poor in the many air purifiers The Coway Mighty is equipped with a fibrous filter that only has a carbon coating. The Winix 5500-2’s carbon filter is advanced, containing actual carbon Pellets, but not many compared to what IQAir offers in their V5 Cell Filter, which contains 4 – 5 times gas filtration it contains carbon pallets and alumina.

Why gas filter is essential?

Particles get trapped on fibers in the filter, which is why it’s important to have both an air purifier and HEPA filtration system.

A gas filtering system works through bonding between chemicals that are specific for different types of smells or VOCs—you don’t want your house’s natural scent mixed with whatever xanthan gum chemical somebody put into their product!

The IQAir’s gas filter includes true carbon pellets – this enhances the surface space for bonding sites. It also has alumina, which provides an extra chemical necessary when processing certain gases so they can attach themselves better through physical contact and not just electronically like in cases where there are no molecules present at all.

Pre-Filter

This budget air purifier uses its fibrous carbon filter. Bigger particles and fibres attach to the carbon filter instead of going into your expensive HEPA filters, which can be replaced at higher costs than just buying another one for regular use!

More expensive options have a separate washable pre-filter. The Coway Mighty and Winix 5500-2 fall into this category as well, with both units having mesh filters to catch large particles before they enter the HEPA filter area of either unit’s interior design architecture.

When compared to Coway and Winix’s pre-filters, which are both very thin mesh designs, IQAir’s HealthPro Plus contains a separate nonwashable particle filter. The difference in efficiency between this type of material versus a HEPA (heavy Duty) Filter cannot be seen as such, but it does remove smaller particles from airflow than what was found inside these two competitors’ models too.

But the downside is that since there’s no way for me or anyone else who removes their filters regularly can wash them, they need to be replaced at a high cost! It also doesn’t help if someone has used an old one too long before installing new ones to avoid any issues with freshness.

The last line of protection for any particle is the HEPA filter. This is inside both IQAir and other top-rated air purifiers like Coway or Winix, but there are some key differences you should know about if your goal is to keep them clean! Particles traveling through an intelligence unit’s preface will get stopped by its first layer (pre-filter).

All three units have exactly the same type of final ultra-fine particle filter with equally high efficiency – a HEPA (High Efficacy Particle Arrestor) Filter! The pre-filter quality only affects how quickly these filters saturate and trap larger particles before they enter your air stream.

Air performance

The IQAir HealthPro Plus was able to reduce the number of particles in a room from 10,000 per cubic ft. to 1,000 per cubic ft. in 9 minutes in a 150 sq. ft. test environment. This shows that it is an effective air purifier for cleaning relatively dirty air.

This result is confusing. It was expected because this unit had very similar results to other units with the same output. The HealthPro Plus processes about 300 cubic feet per minute (300 CFM). Top-rated units like the Coway Mighty and Winix 5500-2 output at about 250 CFM – only 50 CFM less than the IQAir.

The lower output units took longer to clean the air. For example, the Honeywell HPA100 took 22 minutes. The higher output units were faster. The Coway AirMega 400s only took 4 minutes.

The IQAir is better at filtering out particles than other air purifiers. This is because its primary particle filter, called the HyperHEPA filter, is thicker and has more filtration media than most other particle filters. Additionally, its pre-filter, called the PreMax filter, is much thicker and more substantial than the pre-filters installed in most other air purifiers.

The IQAir was a little bit faster than the Winix 5500-2 and the Coway Mighty in our particle removal test. But the IQAir had a much bigger pre-filter and particle filter than the other air purifiers.

The IQAir’s output – the number of cubic feet of air it can process per minute – was the main reason it did well in our tests. Its better gas filtration wasn’t as important. We will explain why this was the case in the upcoming section on “filter analysis.”

First, we need to discuss the second part of our particle testing. This part involved allowing the air purifier to keep running in the test environment so we could see how low of a room particle concentration it was able to achieve.

We stopped testing at 1,000 particles per cubic ft. But we wanted to see if the air purifier could lower the concentration of particles in the air. Our testing equipment could only measure as low as 100 particles per cubic ft., which is as good of a result as we could get.

The IQAir took 9 minutes to lower the concentration of particles in the room from 10,000 to 1,000 per cubic ft. It then took an additional 18 minutes to lower the concentration of particles to 100 per cubic ft.

The high output units we tested all produced a similar result. The Coway Mighty and Winix 5500-2 were both able to achieve an ultra-low room particle concentration of 100 particles per cubic ft. after running for a longer period of time.

We recommend this model for 300sq.ft because the 50CFM difference is so minimum according to the area that the purifier is going to cover We recommend that you buy more than one air purifier for your home for a space of more than 300Sq.ft. The Coway Airmega 400 is only recommended for rooms up until 300 sq ft because it acts like just one individual unit in the room, taking dirty outside air and putting clean inside, therefore not being very effective when compared with two lower CFM models which can do a better job at large surface area contamination due also having more excellent flow rates.

Generally speaking, low-priced budget units cannot achieve the same low level of room particle concentration as more expensive units. The Honeywell HPA100 could only get the concentration down to 900 particles per cubic ft. The ever-popular GermGuardian AC4825 could only get it down to 500 particles per cubic ft. Keep in mind that each of these units was given an indefinite amount of time to achieve the lowest possible concentration.

Air movement

The IQAir HealthPro Plus is a powerful air purifier that can remove 9 minutes’ worth of particles in just one 150 sq ft test environment! It took 9 minutes in this test room size, but thanks to its efficient filters and powerful engine, it managed to reduce all types of particles from 10k+ down to 1k!

The HealthPro Plus can process up to 300 cubic ft. of air every minute. This means it can be used in rooms about 300 sq. ft. in size.

We also recommend using units with a capacity of 250 CFM or less in rooms up to 300 sq. ft. in size.

Even though the difference in CFM is 50, we still recommend this fan because:

  1. The difference isn’t very big, and it won’t have a major impact on the area that the fan can cover.
  2. We commonly don’t suggest one air purifier for rooms larger than 300 sq. ft. The Coway AirMega 400, which has an approximate 430 CFM, is only recommended for rooms up to 300 sq. ft. because it is not as effective as multiple lower CFM units in a large room. Our testing showed that two lower CFM units are much more effective in a large room than a single high CFM unit.

Noise 

With six fan speeds, the IQAir HealthPro Plus runs 22 decibels at its lowest setting. This is much quieter than any other product last year!

The HealthPro Plus features six different speeds, with the loudest setting being 6th. When set on this speed, it produces an impressively low 57 dB of noise output and is only slightly higher than other models that have been tested at around 50-60dBs across all modes (medium & low).

The HealthPro Plus is a noisier air purifier than most, with an especially high fan speed that can be uncomfortable to listen to. It was measured at 57 dB on the highest setting!

IQAir HealthPro Plus is a quiet and efficient large-room air purifier. At its highest setting, it produces 57dB of noise reduction, which makes for very comfortable living conditions in your home or office space, as well as excellent restful sleep.

Durability

The HealthPro Plus is a durable air purifier that can easily handle any environment. Made in Switzerland, this product has all high-quality parts and does not seem like it will break easily under normal circumstances – even though we do have some concerns about The two “arms” that extend out from the unit during maintenance can be a bit of an issue and may break with continued use.

There are a few things we don’t love about this unit. The first is that when you replace the filters, there’s no wobble in either arm– they snap into place with such force it feels like something might break (a part of their plastic construction). Secondly, even if something breaks over time, our warranty still protects us! If you pull/push too tough on them or against something else in your home since there is no protection for what might happen when they snap back into place after being extended alongside metal plates inside our unit, which could cause some damage depending on how much force was used while moving these pieces around initially.

The IQAir purifier is a high-quality product that comes with an extra-long 10-year warranty. It’s so durable, in fact, because of its stainless steel construction and solid-state components! as a comparison with other devices in the market, most come with five years of warranty, but IQAir’s confident about the quality of the parts and gives ten years of warranty.

Energy efficiency

The HealthPro Plus is a high-power-consuming air purifier that draws between 10 and 80 watts of energy, depending on how fast you want your fans to run. At full blast with its tallest setting, it consumes up 233 WatTS per minute, equating to about 300 CFM.

The Winix 5500-2, one of the most energy-efficient air purifiers on today’s market, draws 54.8 watts with its maximum fan speed, which gives it an output of 250 CFM per minute (CFM) / watt ratio of 4x higher than that seen from IQAir at 1 .3. in short winix is three times more energy sufficient than IQAir max speed.

At lower speeds, it draws just 23 watts! With each fan rotation, you get 1.7 cubic feet of air movement per watt – one of the highest ratios out there, so your house stays cool without sounding like an industrial space.

The Winix 5500 -2 is costly but efficient compared to other popular brands by how quickly it cools your room. The low-speed settings for this unit draw 5 watts and produce 11 CFM, which means that the energy efficiency is over five times better than IQAir.

The IQAir’s inefficient energy use is because of its thick filters. Instead, most other units on the market have much thinner HEPA and pre-filters, which require more power to run while also being ineffective at removing larger particles from the air, like dirt or pollen spores.

The thicker HEPA filter makes this model less efficient than others with similar technology but smaller sizes; it weighs over 5 pounds!

Price & Value

The IQAir HealthPro Plus costs less than other high-range air purifiers like Blueair Classic 605, Alen BreatheSmart 75i, or AIRMEGA 400S. However, it still costs you $150 to 200 compared to mutual competitors with similar features, such as An unaware 150watt intake system that provides better filtration without affecting engine performance.

The HealthPro Plus is a much more energy-inefficient air purifier than the Winix 5500-2. It draws almost three times much power because of its higher fan speed.

You may want to consider this when comparing costs between filter replacements! IQAir replacement cost is 360$, but you don’t have to replace it often as compared to another air purifier like winix 5500-2. because The IQAir purifier will last four times longer than the Winix 5500-2 and other things, such as size space, fan speed, etc.

The Winix filter costs $50 to 60 annually, which translates into a yearly replacement cost of 50-90 dollars depending on how often you change them. In some conditions, the IQAir filters last four times as long as the winix filter lasts a year. So the total cost of the winix becomes 90*4 = 360$.

$90 is a lot less than 360 dollars, but it’s still more expensive than 50-$60 for the Winix filter. You do get better gas filtration with IQAir’s air purifier, granted you pay the upfront cost of approx 900$ and high energy costs due to its sophisticated technology and higher electricity bill with high maintenance. It’s not a good value for money.

Pros & cons

Pros
  • This unit can process 50 more cubic feet of air than the top-rated 250 CFM units.
  • This air purifier has high-quality filters that last for a long time. You don’t have to replace the filters as often as you do with most other air purifiers.
  • This air purifier has great gas filtration. It has five pounds of activated carbon and alumina, which is four to five times more than what other air purifiers have. This means that the unit will remove unwanted gases faster and for a longer period of time.
  • This unit is larger and heavier than most other units on the market, but it is still portable. You can move it from room to room on casters, as long as you don’t need to move it up or down any stairs.
  • A great warranty – a 10-year warranty if you register the product with the manufacturer. Other air purifiers on the market have a 3 to 5-year warranty.
Cons
  • This unit is quite expensive, costing around $900. It is four to six times more expensive than the top-rated units.
  • This unit has much worse energy efficiency than top-rated units. It draws over 200 watts of power on max fan speed, while top-rated units only draw around 100 watts of power.
  • This unit is very noisy when the fan is set to its highest speed. The noise it makes is almost like it’s in a different gear – the sound of the air passing through the diffuser is much louder than when the fan is set to a slower speed.

Verdict

The IQAir HealthPro Plus is the best air purifier this year, but it’s still too expensive for me. if you want to buy an air purifier for large spaces or thinking about buying high-range air purifiers.

If you’re looking for a durable, high-quality air purifier that will last ten years without problems, look no further than this IQAir model. It’s made in Switzerland and has an impressive 10-year warranty, so it can’t be beaten!

The IQAir HealthPro Plus is the best choice for people who want to get rid of unwanted gas and don’t mind paying a higher price. If you’re looking out primarily for particle filtration – meaning things like allergens or dust—we recommend something cheaper, such as Winix 5500-2
