Yes. Corona virus (COVID 19) particles have now been tested at between .008 and .12 microns. The IQAir Healthpro 250 has proven, independent testing for a cleaning efficiency of .003 microns. The efficiency was independently verified by a leading German aerosol test laboratory. This makes The Healthpro 250 the safest and most virus effective air purifier you can buy in Australia.
And importantly, due to their hydrophobic properties, IQAir’s particle filters are naturally antibacterial and thus do not support microbial growth. Their hospital-grade filter media effectively removes even the tiniest pollution particles and microorganisms (independently tested .003 micron efficiency) with an absolute minimum efficiency of 99.5%. Once removed, the particles are safely trapped permanently within the filters.
No. Most ordinary air purifiers are not designed for use in critical healthcare environments and cannot guarantee reliable high-efficiency removal of the smallest microorganisms. The efficiency claims of ordinary air purifiers using synthetic (polypropylene) filters are often theoretical marketing claims that have not been independently verified in accordance with standardized filter test norms (such as EN 1822) and that do not hold true in challenging real-life situations. Furthermore, efficiency claims are often made only for particles down to 0.3 microns (approx. 3 times larger than the coronavirus) or refer to “best case” results that were achieved only at the lowest fan speed or with a brand-new filter, especially in the case of synthetic HEPA filters that can lose more than 50% of their initial efficiency after just a few months of use, resulting in unreliable protection and a false sense of security.
Your health and your loved ones' health is the most valuable asset you will ever have. You may buy cheap but you may pay dearly.

Coverage min. 85 - 100 sq mts.
IQAir's HyperHEPA® Filter difference
Most airpurifiers only filter particles larger than 0.3 microns in size, but 90% of all ultra fine particles are smaller than 0.3 microns. This means that most airpurifiers are only filtering 10% of the particles in your air. IQAir's patented HyperHEPA filters are the first filters tested and certified to filter down to 0.003 microns with a guaranteed minimum efficiency of over 99.5%. This allows your HealthPro to capture the ultra fine particles, even bacteria and virus, that other airpurifiers miss.
Its molecular effectiveness - the ability to adsorb*chemicals, fumes, odours, gases VOCs and smoke - also makes this air purifier device very suitable for asthma sufferers, as asthma is often triggered by chemical irritants, as well as allergens. Its V5 Cell contains Multigas (MG) chemisorber media to remove deadly nitrogen oxides (NOx). Chemisorber is also used in the Healthpro 150 model and the GC-MG and GCX-MG models.
IQAir's long life filters mean that over the 5 year warranty period, significant savings on filter replacements reduce its overall cost compared to other leading brands. The Healthpro 250 costs as little to run as $12 per week (over its 5 years warranty period incl. replacement filters). Ask us for more information and go to the PF40 filter for more pricing examples.
What Our Customers Say..
Kev from Qld says (unedited email): "We purchased an IQ AIR HEALTH PRO 250 ON THE 6TH DEC 2018 and extremely happy. It has run 24 hrs. a day. The house is air conditioned and always closed. The filter lights are all green, pre max shows 10799 remaining the large dust filter says average. Fan speed runs on low or two and filters half the house. We did have a small fire in the kitchen that filled the house with black smoke and required a lot of cleaning six months ago. We ran the filter on high for day or two and are surprised that it still indicates all filters are fine. We are amazed that everything has lasted so long and the quietness of the unit. In that time we have endured two bad dust storms and bush fire smoke.
"Anna & Joe: We've loved this unit, it's really helped massively with dust allergies!
Ben, Ballarat Vic: Tried other air cleaners for my hayfever but found they didn’t help at all. Decided to invest in an IQAir Healthpro 250 and overnight I found relief, waking up the best I have felt for ages. So I went back and purchased a second unit the following day for the rest of the house! Definitely worth the money.
Christos, South Melb, Mar 2013: "The IQAir Healthpro 250 has worked miracles for my wife, I can't believe the difference it's made even after just two days. In fact, the Healthpro 250 saved our cat which we thought might have to go given my wife's constant allergic reactions to it - but with this IQ unit, that's all in the past. I wish I'd known about it years ago. I highly recommend it. Brilliant!
Linda - Sydney NSW. “My son and I are Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers and I have a dust allergy. We live on a busy highway and the IQ Healthpro 250 has visibly reduced the amount of dust in our home and has been particularly effective in eliminating musty smells and quickly clearing paint odours. Caster wheels make it easy to move to where it is most needed and it is quiet enough for my son to use in his bedroom each night. The IQ Healthpro 250 was a great investment towards improving our health.”

HOW IT WORKS - 3 FILTERS
1. PRE-FILTER::Micro-particle filtration Eliminates particles such as pollen, pet dander and mould spores.
2 & 3. THE V5 CELL:: a) Granular activated carbon adsorption Eliminates via adsorption* chemical residues, gases, smoke odours and volatile organic compounds(VOCs). b) Pelletized chemisorption A secondary process that destroys a wider range of harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside an actived pellet. Click here for the chemicals the V5 Cell can remove.
4. MAIN FILTER :: HyperHEPA® filtration* Eliminates the tiniest of micro-particles - dust, pollens, mould spores, combustion particles from vehicles and smoke, as well as bacteria, viruses and through its nano-fibre structure.
