IQAir HealthPro weight
Weight
35.3 lb (16 kg)

Modern yet not over simplistic exterior, IQAir HealthPro 15 x 28 x 16 in size and 35.3 lb weight is identical to Winix HealthPro dimension. Sliding around the air purifier is possible thanks to the 4 casters plus there is carrying handle for added portability. Build quality is second to none as the air purifier is completely built in with ABS plastic materials. Probably the setback to IQAir HealthPro sturdiness is the unavoidable added bulkiness that might not be ideal for tight spaces. Other great features of IQAir HealthPro include 3D UltraSeal triple-seal design, 6 fanspeed with 320 degree distribution, PreMax pre-filter, HyperHEPA True HEPA filter, LCD display with adv programmable timer (schedule operation, speed, weekly), accurate Intelligent Filter Life Monitor with indicator that forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage, individually certified performance, IAACM certified, no-ozone/ harmful chemicals and 10 years warranty. Basically replica of IQ HealthPro Plus with the exclusion of V5-Cell Carbon filter.

Again like HealthPro, IQAir HealthPro 41-300 cfm airflow efficiency is robust, consistent at any of the 6 speed. Helped by a three-dimensional optimized design, airflow intake are absorbed from bottom and distribute at top, covering bacteria and pollutants from low to high. Purifying coverage is incredibly wide at 1098 sq. ft. that needless to say covers a lot of ground. Another good thing about IQAir HealthPro is each air purifier are independently certified and tested by IQAir quality control engineer on air delivery, filter leakage, and particle filtration efficiency. We probably should mention there is no air quality sensors and Auto mode available as with all IQAir HealthPro series.

^ IQAir HealthPro filters/ technologies/ lifespan
IQAir HealthPro first-stage PreMax Filter (F8) is a excellent dual function pre-filter that traps large particles such as dust and micro-size particles such as pollen, pet dander. With most pollutants captured by the pre-filter, the HyperHEPA filter would have the space and capacity to capture ultrafine particles down to 0.003 microns size such as allergens and bacteria that is not seen through our naked eyes. Compare with most True HEPA filter in the market, HyperHEPA filtration system is 100x more effective. V5-Cell Gas & Odor Filter MG is an optional filter option that can be purchase at later stage. Lastly IQAir HealthPro can reduce indoor ozone level but only to a certain extent.

IQAir HealthPro noise level
Noise level
25 - 59 dB
IQAir HealthPro power consumption
Power consumption
27 - 215 W
Significantly less noise than previous model, IQAir HealthPro strong sound insulation is achievable via its thick double-walled housing, EvenFlow Diffuser that deflects sounds back into the system and rubber suspension pad that systematically isolate motor vibration from the housing. With all that, noise level is considerably low at speed 3 or below 25 - 59 dB. Power consumption varies between 27 - 215 W depending on how you utilize the air purifier. at lower fanspeed the power consumption rate is so little that you could barely see the differences even if is running 24x7. For long operation that relies on speed 3 and above, we recommend utilizing IQAir HealthPro schedule timer to shut-off/ reduce the fanspeed when its not required to improve on the cost-efficiency.

^ IQAir HealthPro replacement filters estimated cost
Overall IQAir HealthPro is well worth the price tag and is cheaper than HealthPro Plus version although not significant enough in our books. We would wholly recommend the Plus version as the Carbon filter is super effective against strong gases and odors unless you have absolutely no use of that. Filter replacement cost is expensive (PreMax + HyperHEPA) but relatively cheap in long-run as PreMax lifespan is 18 months and HyperHEPA is at 4 years. The long filter lifespan would also save you some time in searching for filter replacement and changing it.

The challengers

IQAir HealthPro Plus

As mentioned earlier, Winix HealthPro Plus is pricier but well worth the money with the inclusion of V5-Cell Gas & Odor Filter.

Airgle AG900

Similar price tag and build quality but comes with Activated carbon filter. Different types of filtration setup with weaker purifying coverage.

Blueair 650E

Cheaper and comes with better airflow delivery rate. The very short filter lifespan is probably the biggest setback.

In conclusion......

  • Made in Switzerland with zero-leak triple-seal technology and impact resistant ABS plastic.
  • Highly functional PreMax pre-filter that captures dust, hair, fur to micro-particles such as pet dander.

More on IQAir HealthPro air purifier

IQAir HealthPro air purifiers are made in Switzerland from UV impact-resistant ABS plastic materials that have non-off gassing. The design is modern and pleasing to the eyes; a four key touch pad with LCD information display is standard at top that shows information such as filter lifespan, programmable timer status, 6 fan speeds and can display up to 4 languages (English, German, French or Spanish). Moving to the bottom you will find 4 casters that support the heavy 16 kg weight. Overall IQAir HealthPro is superiorly built and the sturdiness structure prevented any gas leakage at all. At the moment IQAir only manufactures 120V model air purifier. Do not plug it into a 220-240V outlet even if you have a transformer or a voltage converter. The warranty does not cover the usage outside of North America.

Applicable area, airflow, noise level and power input

The highlight goes to its filters. IQAir HealthPro HEPA air filter is the best in the market, combined with the strong built-in fan that delivers magnificent airflow between 70 m³/h to 560 m³/h. Surprisingly IQAir HealthPro fan noise level is constraints between 25 dB to 59 dB; Not exceeding the 60 dB guideline. Purifying coverage is impressive at 115 m2 (1238 sq. ft.); Great for large living hall. Finally, power consumption is between a low 27 watts to an extremely high 215 watts depending on the fan speed mode you are on.

Final thoughts on IQAir HealthPro

Let’s start off with the bad points of IQAir HealthPro. Despite the bulkiness of the unit, there is no built-in air quality sensor which translates to no auto fan speed mode. Without auto mode adjusting the fan speed, user would have to rely on a pre-set fan speed and that will be very bad in terms of power consumption. Other than that, IQAir HealthPro is pretty much flawless and worth every penny you spent.
