No other whole-house air purification system on the market can compete with the IQAir Perfect 16 when it comes to removing dust, pollen, mould spores, pet allergens and other airborne particulates from your indoor environment. In fact, the Perfect 16 is the only residential air purification system to be awarded a perfect 16 on the MERV filter efficiency rating scale, a system created by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to independently verify how well air filtration systems actually clean the air. With the Perfect 16, IQAir guarantees that your indoor air will be 10 times cleaner within an hour of installation!

The IQAir Perfect 16 is an inline system that is seamlessly retrofitted into your home’s existing central heating and cooling (HVAC) system. This means that, unlike typical bypass systems that only clean 30% of the circulated air, the IQAir Perfect 16 cleans 100% of the air that passes through the HVAC system. The heating/cooling system does not need to be running for the IQAir Perfect 16 to function – as long as the fan is on, the Perfect 16 is working to deliver purified air to every room of your house.

The IQAir Perfect 16 is the first whole-house air cleaning system to utilize Advanced Micro-Fibre Technology (AMF). These unique filter fibres are 10 times thinner than those used in standard air filters, creating an almost impermeable barrier for particles, while allowing air to easily pass through them. Featuring a remarkable 170 sq. ft. of filter surface area in an innovative double “V” design, the IQAir Perfect 16’s four filter panels provide 50 times more filtration material than that of ordinary furnace filters, and are capable of capturing particles down to 0.3 microns at 95% effectiveness.

The vast amount of filtration media contained in the IQAir Perfect 16 also ensures that the unit is maintenance-free for up to three years (based on a 50% duty cycle). Compare this with other whole-house air cleaners and conventional furnace filters that require frequent cleaning or filter replacement several times a year.

As an added bonus, the IQAir Perfect 16 can actually lower your household energy bills. While conventional whole-house air cleaning systems and furnace filters can impede the air flow of your HVAC system by as much as 50% (and even more as they get dirty), the IQAir Perfect 16 is engineered to produce ultra-low air resistance and reduced static pressure drop to actually improve the performance efficiency of your existing HVAC system. As a result, many Perfect 16 customers have experienced monthly energy savings in addition to cleaner indoor air!

IQAir Perfect 16

The IQAir Perfect 16 is available in two models – the ID-2225, which has a 3 ton capacity rating (1200 cfm), and the ID-2530, which has a 5 ton capacity rating (2000 cfm). Which unit is required for your house depends on the HVAC system that is installed (homes with more than one HVAC system will require one unit per HVAC system). IQAir Perfect 16 units can be installed in practically any home, of any size. Only on rare occasions do space limitations and design prevent a system from being installed. During the pre-installation evaluation, we will inspect your home’s HVAC system for compatibility and tonnage to determine which Perfect 16 model you need.

The IQAir Perfect 16 was named Product of the Year in 2006 by the well-respected Reviewboard Magazine, who praised it as “the most effective air cleaning system we have ever tested.” Moreover, the popular ABC television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition routinely turns to the IQAir Perfect 16 whenever they need to create an ultra-clean indoor air environment for a family with health issues. In addition, the IQAir Perfect 16 is certified by the International Association of Air Cleaner Manufacturers (IAACM) to be 100% ozone-free, providing a safe and healthy approach to indoor air cleaning.

Each IQAir Perfect 16 unit is manufactured to meet IQAir’s high standards for design, engineering and reliability, and is individually tested at their factory in Switzerland to ensure optimum performance. IQAir is so confident of their Swiss craftsmanship that the Perfect 16 is warranted in Canada for a full 10 years against defects in parts and labour, making it an investment in clean indoor air for years to come.

The installation process for the IQAir Perfect 16 is quick and painless, and involves three stages: pre-installation inspection, installation and post-installation testing. In the pre-installation evaluation, Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers and our professional installer will inspect your home’s HVAC system for compatibility and tonnage to determine which Perfect 16 model(s) you require (larger homes with more than one HVAC system will require multiple units). We will also determine whether any additional materials are required beyond the two duct connection panels that are supplied with the unit.

You will then be provided with the total cost for the system, including the IQAir Perfect 16 unit, installation, and any extra materials or custom work that may be required. After the evaluation is complete and we have your go-ahead, the equipment will be ordered and an installation appointment scheduled. The actual installation time varies by residence, but in most cases, takes 3 to 6 hours to complete. Once your IQAir Perfect 16 is installed, we will test it with a professional laser particle counter to certify that the system is working to specifications.
