IQAir HealthPro Plus Vs Airpura UV600 HEPA Air Purifiers—–This detailed report is to show and prove to you why the (Made In Canada) Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifier with non-ozone producing ultraviolet light system that will also destroy airborne viruses, bacteria and mold spores is far superior than the IQAir HealthPro Plus HEPA air purifier and a much better choice for your family in your home or for your office employees that suffer from dust, allergies, asthma or due to outgassing chemicals and biological contaminants in your indoor air environment.

We Give The IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier Poor Reviews!     Read Why!

The Swiss made IQAir HealthPro series of air purifiers all made from ABS plastic. The Airpura UV600 is made from metal and powder coated for its color that does not outgas any chemicals.

NOTE: The IQAir HealthPro Plus has fewer features then the superior Airpura UV600 which includes a powerful non ozone producing state of the art UV ultraviolet light system to be able to destroy biological contaminants that include airborne viruses, bacteria and mold spores.

The IQAir HealthPro Plus HEPA Purifier Sells For $899.00. The (Made In Canada) Airpura UV600 HEPA Air Purifier With Added UV Ultraviolet Light System To Destroy Viruses, Bacteria And Mold Spores Also Sells For $899.99

I will say that IQAir does a heck of a good job in marketing their air purifiers. However marketing can be and is often  deceiving! What you read below will be very interesting when checking out the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifiers compared to the Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifiers while researching information for a possible purchase.

The IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifiers are reasonably quiet when operating at up to 240 CFM of air movement and they do indeed clean the indoor air at a 99.97 percent of efficiency at 0.3 microns of particle size. This is standard for most HEPA air purifiers that are on the market. However in the IQAir website they also play with the numbers to also state that their air purifiers will also clean the air at 99.5 percent of efficiency at 0.003 microns of particle size.  We feel that this second statistic is deceptive and they are using these numbers as a marketing ploy in their attempt to look better for potential buyers.

The IQAir HealthPro Plus replacement filters cost a minimum of $350.00 each year and if you purchase the optional coarse-dust killer filter you will spend an extra $145.00 more for this filter.

URGENT TO READ--The cost of the HealthPro Plus and its yearly filter replacement cost is in our opinion extremely high and THE EXTRA UNSETTLING FACT is that as per their own website information IQAir bases the life expectancy of the air filters in their air purifiers when operating them for only 10 Short Hours A Day! What about the other 14 hours a day?

This is amazing and unrealistic because people’s homes with A/C systems and ducted furnace systems blowing dust, pet dander, pollen and Dust Mite allergen as well as airborne viruses, bacteria and mold spores into the indoor air to trigger allergy and asthma problems need air purifiers that will always be improving their indoor air quality (IAQ) while cleaning their indoor air 24 hours a day and night!

Filter Replacement Cost For The IQAir HealthPro Plus At Only 10 Hours Of Operating Time Per Day

Replace Pre-Filter Every 18 Months—–$69.00

Replace V5 Gas 5 Pound Carbon Filter Every 2 Years——$99.00

Replace The HEPA Filter Every 4 Years——$199.00

NOTE: The IQAir HealthPro Plus has absolutely zero ability to destroy germs and biological contaminants that include airborne viruses, bacteria and mold spores!

READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY!— Based On IQAir’s Own 10 Hour A Day Operating Time Statistics In Their Website, Your Yearly Filter Replacement Costs For One Year Operating A IQAir HealthPro Plus For 24 Hours A Day (Which Is Normal And Necessary For All Air Purifiers) The Yearly Filter Replacement Cost Will Be over $350.00 Per Year For Each IQAir HealthPro Plus Unit Operating In Your Home Or Office! 

EXTRA POINTS AGAINST IQAIR——How can an IQAir purifier that has filters in it that are based on an operating time of only 10 hours a day do a proper job of cleaning the air in a home or office space that has pets and or a dirty A/C system and air ducts that is blowing dust and debris into the homes rooms 24 hours a day and night? It Can’t! Not unless your ready to spend a whole lot of money on IQAir filter replacements for the full ability to operate 24 hours a day! EVERYDAY!

IQAir’s trademarked $99.00 V5-cell filter with only 5 pounds of activated carbon, with potassium permanganate and alumina that absorbs out-gassing chemicals and odors from your indoor air is advertised to last an average of 1-2 years while operating at 10 hours a day!  We feel that this is most likely an overestimated time period even for 10 hours a day. If this trademarked V5-cell filter was operating for 24 hours a day we feel that the 5 pound carbon blend would only last 5 months!

The Filter Replacement Indicator In The IQAir HealthPro Plus Is A Timer That Forces Expensive Filter Changes

NOTE: IQAir Air Purifiers including the HealthPro Plus use an electronic timer to prompt you to replace these very expensive filters! Many manufacturers that produce what we feel are quality HEPA air purifiers use pressure sensors that can measure the back pressure on the filter(s) to alert the air purifier owner with an indicator light when it’s the correct time to replace the needed air filter when its actually dirty enough to replace! Or it is advised for the customers to simply look at their filters to check them for debris content loading up on the filters.  We feel that using timers for filter replacements is unethical and wrong because it pushes the air purifier owner to spend a lot more of their hard earned money to replace filters that may not actually be dirty enough to replace!

NOTE: IQAir claims to also be able to remove mold spores, bacteria and viruses into its HealthPro Plus trademarked HyperHEPA filter from your indoor air! However none of the IQAir purifies include any technology that can actually destroy any of these biological contaminants. Since the primary function of an air filter is to bring dirt into it, any bacteria, mold spores or virus can grow inside of the dirt that can act as a nutrient inside of the IQAirs filters itself if the temperature and relative humidity is high enough in the homes indoor air environment to allow these possible biohazards to grow and multiply inside of the IQAir purifier’s air filters!

Compare These Two Air Purifiers And Decide For Yourself, Which Is Best!

The Airpura UV600 HEPA Air Purifier With Non-Ozone Producing Ultraviolet Light System 

The (Made In Canada) Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifier is designed to operate and clean the air in your needed space, home or office a full continuous 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for years at a time and is considered by many to be the best all around HEPA air purifier on the market. Period! The UV600 sells for $899.00 with free shipping in the USA and Canada. The Airpura UV600 is 15 inches square in width and 23 inches in height and made of sturdy steel construction mounted on easy to roll casters. The UV600 HEPA air purifier weighs 45 pounds and it is powder coated for color so absolutely no chemicals will out-gas from these units. Color choices include cream, which is a light beige that best matches most shades of wood furniture, white and black.

The Airpura UV600 powerful Variable speed 450 CFM motor with filters installed is extremely quiet and at low speed it is so quiet most customers can’t hear it running even when standing right next to it. This is great for light sleepers! The UV600 HEPA air purifier includes a top quality medical grade HEPA filter that will last 5-6 years before replacement is required and it is 100 percent sealed inside of the unit. The UV600 HEPA filter is 99.97 percent efficient down to .3 microns of particle size so nothing but clean air flows out of this air purifier. Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifiers also include 18 pounds of activated  carbon for absorbing out-gassing chemicals and odors for up to 2 years in the indoor air environment of the home or office space.

One of the best features in the Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifiers is their non-ozone producing ultraviolet (UV) light system design that includes a powerful hospital grade 30,000 Micro-Watts Sec / CM2 of power total microwatt UV bulbs aimed to cover the entire inside kill chamber of the HEPA filter to effectively destroy all airborne viruses, bacteria and mold spores.

Another great feature of Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifiers is that the entire air purifier is 100 percent sealed so absolutely no (ZERO) dust, particulates, allergens viruses, bacteria or mold spores can escape from around the HEPA filter or through its sealed case to blow back into the indoor air environment of the Airpura UV600’s operating space! This air purifier is sealed so well it will pass a ZERO laser particle count test and show 100% ZERO emissions at 99.97 percent efficiency down to .3 microns of particle size! Almost no other air purifier on the planet can pass this no leak test!

There is a big difference in the Airpura UV600’s favor with future replacement filter costs compared to the IQAir HealthPro Plus HEPA air purifier. When you purchase an Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifier you won’t have to replace anything for 1 year.

Air Filter And UV Lamp Yearly Replacement Cost For The Airpura UV600 HEPA Air Purifier

The 18 pound up to 2 year activated carbon filter will cost $219.00 or $110.00 per year.

Then one required pre-filter will last up to one year costs $22.50

The powerful 20 Watt 30,000 Micro-Watt UV Bulb should be replaced once every 18-24 months at a total cost of $149.00 or $74.50 per year

The HEPA filter Will Last Aprox 5 years and it costs $179.00 or $36.00 per year

This equals to be only $243.00 for the total yearly filter replacement cost including the UV bulbs during the first five years of the Airpura UV600 operation which includes its UV Ultraviolet light system. THIS IS OVER A $100.00 PER YEAR SAVINGS DIFFERENCE IN FILTER REPLACEMENT COST COMPARED TO THE IQAIR HEALTHPRO PLUS THAT HAS NO UV ABILITY!

These are good reasons why that the Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifiers are the number one choice for hospitals, doctors offices, dentist offices and other businesses as well as for with people with respiratory problems, organ transplants, stem cell transplants, chemotherapy and for people with compromised immune systems!

HOWEVER the great majority of Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifiers are sold to regular everyday people to protect their families in their homes and employees in office spaces for dust, allergy and asthma control while also protecting them from airborne chemical outgassing, viruses, bacteria and mold spores.

It is our great hope and desire that this report has been a help to you when choosing a proper HEPA purifier for dust allergy and asthma control, especially if you have been investigating the IQAir air purifiers. Hopefully you can now see that the Airpura UV600 HEPA air purifier with non-ozone producing ultraviolet light system is far superior then the IQAir HealthPro Plus in quality,  functionality and future filter replacement cost.
