IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier is called the world’s most advanced air purifier.
It has many #1 product reviews and is one of the best for allergies and asthma.
This model is for spaces up to 1125 square feet (105m2).
IQAir HealthPro Plus Design, size, placement
The IQAir HealthPro Plus is a big machine; measurements are the height of 28 inches (71cm), the width of 15 inches (38cm), and the depth of 16 inches (40.5cm).
But it looks great; it is designed so well that it doesn’t look so big. An air purifier is manufactured in Switzerland using fully cured, high-grade, injection-molded ABS plastic.
This material resists scratches and dents and is highly impact-resistant due to its 3-millimeter housing thickness.
The best place for the IQAir HealthPro Plus is a floor. The air intake is at the bottom of the unit. The air outlet is at the top of the unit, with air distribution in all directions. (It has a 320° EvenFlow diffuser). You can also get a wall mount bracket.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus weight is 35lbs (16kg). That is like a European standard kettlebell. The built-in guiding handle on the top and sturdy casters on the bottom of an air purifier makes it simple to roll around the house.
How it works and what sources of indoor pollution destroy
A fan moves the air through this machine.
The HealthPro Plus air purifier has an advanced 3-stage filtration system.
The first is a pre-filter, also called PreMax. It removes 90% of the particle weight from the air going through the air cleaner, allowing the HyperHEPA filter to last up to five times longer than similar filters in ordinary air cleaners.
The second is a V-5 cell gas and odor filter. This filter uses granular activated carbon adsorption to eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs), causing many unpleasant odors. This filter also uses pelletized chemisorption to destroy other harmful chemicals like formaldehyde. I bet you have read reviews about this filter’s chemical, plastic-type smell. Not anymore; the manufacturer has eliminated this problem.
The third is the HyperHEPA filter. Again, this is better than the true-HEPA filter. This filter removes particles as small as 0.003 microns with a guaranteed minimum efficiency of over 99.5%. This is 100 times smaller than True-HEPA can filter. So that means this air cleaner captures almost everything – viruses, bacteria, pet allergies, mold spores, pollen, dust, and materials used in the building such as asbestos, formaldehyde, and lead.

IQAir HealthPro Plus Noise level
The New Edition has an average of 7% less sound across all fan speeds without sacrificing filter life or system efficiency.
This system is virtually inaudible on its lowest fan speed, making it great for noise-sensitive environments like libraries, nurseries, and bedrooms.
The second and third speed is also quiet.
Loudest at the sixth speed, but that is ok because, with this speed, the air cleaner moves a lot of air. The highest fan speed produces 69 dB.
IQAir HealthPro Plus Energy Consumption
IQAir HealthPro Plus energy consumption varies from 27 to 215 watts based on the fan speed setting.
If you use it 8 hrs per day with the first fan speed, it will consume 6 kW monthly; if it has the highest fan speed, it will consume 51 kW monthly.
If you use it 24/7 with the first fan speed, it will consume 19 kW monthly; if it has the highest fan speed, it will consume 154 kW monthly.
Of course, you won’t use it at first or last speed all the time. So let’s make an average consumption of around 28 kW with 8hr daily usage or around $4 per month and 86 kW with 24/7 usage or around $12.
That’s more than any other air purifier consumes.
IQAir HealthPro Plus CADR And Coverage
AHAM does not test the IQAir HealthPro Plus, so it is not CADR rated.
CADR ratings are never given out for whole-house air purifiers because they’re measured differently.
This unit is designed to be much more efficient at cleaning the air than less expensive units. To get a general comparison, you can compare this unit’s air delivery (in CFM- cubic feet per minute) to others.
Air delivery with speed 1 is 40 CFM.
Air delivery with speed 6 is 240cfm.
IQAir HealthPro Plus covers 450 square feet of large spaces 5 times per hour. That’s not that much at all; there are a lot cheaper models with cheaper filter replacements, quieter, and consume less energy.
One of them is AirDoctor 3000, which covers a larger area, cleans the same size particles, is less noisy, and saves energy.
Other models worth looking at are Bissell AIR400 and Alen BreatheSmart 75i True HEPA Air Purifier. They also have powerful purification but cost a lot less.
IQAir HealthPro Plus Maintenance and upkeep
IQAir recommends running your IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier for 10 hours daily on speed setting 3. However, thanks to its superior performance and filtration, it does not need to be run 24 hours, 7 days a week.
The average filter life for 10 hours of use per day on speed setting 3 is outlined below.
- PreMax Pre-Filter: 18 months
- V5-Cell Gas & Odor Filter: 2 years
- HyperHEPA Filter: 4 years
Of course, you will use it at different speeds and times than recommended. IQAir HealthPro Plus is equipped with an electronic filter life monitor to show you the system’s filter elements’ remaining life. As I have noticed, in reality, these numbers are close to the ones outlined above.
Filters change. Just realize the locking arms and slide the filters out of the frame.
These air purifiers are ultra-efficient IQAir New Edition fans, and their maintenance-free motor is at the heart of these air purifiers.
IQAir HealthPro Plus Summary
The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier works excellent. It captures airborne pollutants as small as 0.003 microns. It has one of the best air filtration systems on the market.
And that is an incredible number. Surprisingly great air cleaner for big size space up 450 square feet. It has a lot of features that you will enjoy.
The only reason that can stop you is the price. But I would say it is worth that.
