3D UltraSeal™

The efficiency stated for most air cleaners is purely theoretical. Internal leakage drastically reduces the actual efficiency of most air cleaners. IQAir systems feature patented triple sealing technology. First, a unique process ensures that the filter media is 100 percent sealed in the filter frame. Second, our patented 3D UltraSeal™ ensures perfect knife-edge-in-groove sealing between filter frame and housing. Third, individual seals on each housing module ensure an airtight housing. As a result, IQAir systems have a total system efficiency that is higher than the theoretical efficiency of conventional air cleaners.

 

New Edition fan

The New Edition features the most powerful fan ever used in a residential room air purifier. That power translates into even better air cleaning results. The new three-dimensionally optimized design now uses state-of-the-art aerodynamics to convert energy into more air and less noise. IQAir systems use the highest quality fan motor available. This fan has an astonishing 780 cfm (1325 m³/h) rating at 2750 rpm. Because each fan is individually balanced and uses steel ball bearings, it outlasts other fans by years. The IQAir New Edition fan is suspended in a housing unit that isolates the fan from the housing with eight shock absorbers to further reduce noise.

 

HyperHEPA® filtration

The IQAir HealthPro Series features HyperHEPA filtration technology for superior airborne particle removal. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration is tested and certified by an independent third-party lab to effectively filter harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and 10 times smaller than a virus. In addition, to ensure that every IQAir HealthPro air purifier is actually delivering superior air quality, each and every system is individually tested at the factory with an electronic particle counter and is certified to filter a minimum of 99.97% of all particles 0.3 microns or larger.

Remote control

A sleek and efficient handheld remote control makes it easy to manage your HealthPro Series air purifier from almost anywhere in the room. You can set the fan speed and even timer controls without getting up. When it’s not in use the remote control fits handily in the recesses on the top of the system, so you can easily find it when you need it.

 

 

 

 

Sophisticated controls

Every IQAir room air purifier features six fan speeds and its streamlined system controls allow you to easily program automatic operation via a day/night timer. This allows you to cut energy costs and extend filter life by using your HealthPro Series air purifier to clean the air exactly as you need it when you need it. Also, the included intelligent filter-life monitor precisely forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage and color-coded lights tell you when it’s time to change each filter. Relax and let the system work for you.

Mobility

The built-in guiding handle on top and sturdy casters on the bottom of the HealthPro Series make it simple to roll around the room or house, providing high-performance air purification wherever you need it. When it’s not needed, it’s a breeze to roll your HealthPro Series into a closet or other handy storage area.

 

Optional V5-Cell™

Our patented V5-Cell™ filtration provides the best solution for gas and odor elimination. In order to remove gaseous pollutants, you need the right combination of media. Our system combines two types of media: one that adsorbs odors and gases and another that changes the pollutant to an oxidized form. The outcome is air that is as clean as it smells.

Air pollution and autism

16 April 2014

Air Quality News from IQAir, the world leader in air purifiers.

Air pollution plays a role in the rising rate of autism among children in the U.S. and worldwide. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, one in every 50 children in the U.S. has been diagnosed with autism. This is a 72% increase in the rate since 2007. The rate for boys is even higher. In areas with elevated pollution levels, autism rates are even higher than the national average. In New Jersey, for example, one in 48 children have autism. For boys in New Jersey, the rate is one in 28.

What is autism?

Autism and autism spectral disorder (ASD) are both terms for a variety of disorders affecting brain development. Those with autism may have problems with social interaction. They may lack verbal and nonverbal communication skills or exhibit repetitive behaviors. Many with autism excel in visual skills, music, math and art. A minority of autistic individuals have intellectual or other disabilities. There is no single cause of autism, “but it is generally accepted that it is caused by abnormalities in brain structure or function,” according to the Autism Society of America.

Autism awareness groups say most cases of autism involve a combination of a genetic predisposition and environmental factors. The age of a child’s parents at the time of conception can play a role. Illnesses during pregnancy can also affect the risk of a child being born with autism.

Air quality and autism

Environmental factors, including air quality, also play a role. A recent study from the University of Southern California found that children with a specific gene variant (known as the “MET gene”) who also lived in highpollution areas were three times more likely to develop autism than children without the gene and living in low-pollution areas.

In another recent study, researchers at Harvard University found a link between specific pollutants and autism. Women exposed to high levels of airborne diesel particulates or mercury while pregnant were twice as likely to have a child with autism. Women exposed to lead, manganese and methylene chloride were also more likely to have a child with autism. The risk for this group was not as high as for those exposed to diesel particulates and mercury. The researchers used air pollution data from the EPA to estimate women’s exposures while pregnant.

Steps to reduce environmental risk

Autism awareness groups say pregnant women should take steps to reduce exposure to chemicals and other pollutants associated with autism. This is especially important for women who live in areas with elevated pollution levels. Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Mercury. Pregnant women should follow EPA and state guidelines on fish consumption. Avoid shark, swordfish, king mackerel, tile fish and large tuna. Some cosmetics may also contain mercury and should be avoided.
  2. Lead. Avoid jobs or hobbies that may involve lead exposure, including exposure to dust from repairs and renovations in homes built before 1978. Also, avoid cosmetics, food additives or medicines from overseas.
  3. Pesticides. Wash produce thoroughly before eating. Avoid using tick and flea collars for pets if the collars contain pesticides. Remove shoes before entering the home to avoid tracking in lawn and garden chemicals.
  4. Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals. This includes BPA and phthalates. Decrease consumption of processed and canned goods. Avoid foods or drinks in plastic containers with recycling codes #3, #4 and #7, as they may contain chemicals such as BPA.
  5. Diesel particulates. The size of diesel particulates that are of greatest concern to human health are fine and ultrafine particles, according to the EPA. Avoid unnecessary exposure to traffic pollution, including sitting in an idling car when avoidable. Also, those who live or work close to a freeway should use a highperformance air purifier to remove fine and ultrafine diesel particulates from the air.

Research suggests that women who take folic acid during early pregnancy may reduce their child’s risk of the most serious form of autism. However, experts point out that folic acid alone cannot prevent every child from developing autism.
