Advanced microfiber filtration technology
microfiber filtration The Perfect 16® is the first whole-house air cleaning system to utilize Advanced Micro-Fiber filtration technology. Filter fibers are 10 times thinner than those used in standard air filters. This allows air to easily pass through the filters, while the ultra fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier for pollution particles. What that means to you is the air in your home will be the cleanest it can possibly be!
V2 design Our revolutionary V2 Design allows the Perfect 16® to use over 170 square feet of filter media! The IQAir Perfect 16® delivers up to 50 times more filtration power than other ordinary filtration systems. The more collection area the better the filtration and allows more air to pass effortlessly through the system.
Ultra-low air restriction
Ultra-low restriction plays a key role in making your Perfect 16 system energy efficient (see above). This unprecedented level of air filtration sophistication is accomplished through the use of state-of-the-art advanced microfiber filtration technology. Conventional whole-house air cleaners can impede the air flow of your central heating and air conditioning system by as much as 50%. ultra low air restriction Filter fibers in the Perfect 16 are 10 times thinner than standard air filters. Air easily passes through the Perfect 16’s V2 filter design, even though the actual surface area contains up to 50 times more filtration media than typical filters. Meanwhile, the ultra-fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier to pollution particles. The result is an ultra-efficient and ultra-low restriction filter that sets a new standard for whole-house air purifiers.
The Perfect 16 is an energy-efficient marvel: It outperforms other air purifiers by far but uses absolutely no electricity. energy efficient And while electrical consumption is an important part of the story, there’s even more. The Perfect 16 has one of the lowest air restriction levels in the industry, so it keeps your HVAC system running smoothly and efficiently without forcing it to push air harder. In fact, the Perfect 16 actually improves the performance of your heating and cooling system when compared to conventional air cleaners. As a result, the Perfect 16 can lower your energy bill while attaining a MERV 16 rating, the highest filtration rating possible.
How it works

It cleans 100% of the air in your home, not 10% - 20% of the circulated air like other HEPA bypass systems do. Air is drawn through your home’s return grill, how it workstypically located in a common area such as a hallway. The air is then filtered through pleated micro-fiber filtration panels placed in our V2 design. With 170 square feet of filtration media, these filters give you 50 times more filtration than ordinary filtration systems. This traps harmful micro-particles each time the system heats or cools your home up to 125 times per day. The result is your home is filled with the cleanest air possible!
