Weight

Iconic design that is highly recognizable even from far, IQAir HealthPro Plus 15 x 28 x 16 in/ 35.3 lb weight is big and bulky that would not fit into tight spaces. Moving around the air purifier is no easy task but fortunately there is top carry handle and casters standing-by.

The long list of IQAir HealthPro Plus features include 4-stage filtration with 6 fanspeed, PreMax pre-filter, HyperHEPA True HEPA filter, V5-Cell MG Carbon filter, 3D UltraSeal body, digital display with programmable timer that allows you to pre-set start time/ end time and speed setting separately from Monday through Sunday, Intelligent Filter Life Monitor displays in green, orange (20% lifespan left), red (10% lifespan left) and flashing red when filter is exhausted, individually certified performance, IAACM (International Association of Air Cleaner Manufacturers) certified, no-ozone 100% Healthy technology, 3 years warranty.

Dependable, robust and consistent is probably the best way of describing IQAir HealthPro Plus airflow efficiency. Between 6 selectable 41-300 cfm airflow speed, there is plenty of kick to go around from the three-dimensional optimized design. Extensive 1098 sq. ft. airflow applicable area is more than enough coverage for most ranging from living room to master bedroom. Again do keep in mind of the air purifier bulkiness. What's unique on airflow distribution is airborne pollutants are absorbed from bottom and distribute at top, where majority of the pollutants resides. Another unique features of IQAir HealthPro Plus is checked and certified independently by IQAir quality control engineer that will issue a certificate of performance in air delivery, filter leakage, and particle filtration efficiency. Only downside to all the outstanding list of features is the lack of air quality/ odor sensors thus no Auto mode.

Thanks to the new "fan-in-center" centrifugal, backward curved fan, the noise level is at 25 - 59 dB which is very impressive given how strong the airflow capacity is. Further isolating the noise is IQAir HealthPro Plus thick double-walled housing, sound deflector EvenFlow Diffuser and rubber suspension pad that reduces the motor vibration noise. 27 - 215 W Power consumption is reasonable if you utilize not more than speed 3 regularly or take advantage of the excellent scheduling timer to control the operation frequency.

^ IQAir HealthPro Plus replacement filters estimated cost
IQAir HealthPro Plus is very expensive lets make no mistake about it. Is it worthy of the premium price tag? Absolutely YES. What you will get in return is a Swiss made air purifier with state of the art technology and robust airflow distribution. On top of that, the pre-bundled filter price alone would already cost you close to $400. With the latest advanced filter-pleating pattern technology, PreMax lifespan is around 18 months, V5-Cell is around 2 years and HyperHEPA lifespan at 4 years. All mentioned are based on daily usage of 10 hours at speed 3.

The challengers

IQAir HealthPro

Cheaper thought not significantly, if you are absolutely sure there is no use for V5-Cell Gas & Odor Filter. This non-plus version is the one you should go for.

Airgle AG900

Another competitive alternative that has similar range price, build quality and performance with different filtration setup.

Blueair 650E

Impressive airflow performance at a lower price tag. Downside is the Short filter lifespan thus frequent replacing is required.

More on IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier

Engineered and built in Switzerland, IQair Healthpro Plus air cleaner is constructed using non-off gassing with high quality UV impact-resistant ABS plastic components. As with most Swiss products, superior craftsmanship with great attention are given to every IQAir built, Filters are tightly sealed in the housing. Top panel consist of four key touch pad with liquid crystal display (LCD) that shows user programmable timer status, filter lifespan (in green, orange, red), fan speed and can display up to 4 languages: English, German, French or Spanish. Airborne pollutants are absorbed from the unit bottom all the way to the top, where majority of the pollutants resides. Moving around the unit is not easy even with the 4 casters as it weights 16kg; most heavy duty air purifier will only weight about 11kg.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

The best of the best. A remarkable maximum room coverage of 102 m2 (1098 ft2) for the IQair Healthpro Plus. Selectable six different fan speeds, the higher the fan speed, the quicker and greater amount of room air will be filtered. At highest setting, the airflow speed could achieve a maximum rate of 510 m³/h; far greater than most air purifiers. One thing missing though is the automatic fan speed mode that for me is rather useful at some point. As for noise level, at 25 dB in the lowest setting and 59 dB in the highest setting, noise level is definitely not IQAir HealthPro strong point. Still, anything from fan speed 3 and below will only generate a weak background hum that is still pleasant enough to be ignored. Power input is on the high side even in new edition models. The unit could consume take up to 215 W of power at maximum speed; 4 times more than average air purifier. The good thing is there is no need to turn on the unit 24 x 7 and there is a built-in timer as you could set the unit off automatically.

Final thoughts on IQAir HealthPro Plus

Yes, IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier are expensive compared with other air purifiers available in the market. However, IQair Healthpro Plus will offer you the absolute best in terms of quality and filtration performance, far ahead of its closest competitor. If you are looking for the ultimate air purifier available, look no further.
