Product Description

The IQAir Perfect 16 is the highest performance air filter for fitting into existing building HVAC systems.

Conventional whole-building air filters can impede the air flow of your central heating and air conditioning system by up to 50%. This air resistance forces your system to work harder forcing air through to heat or cool your building.

The IQAir Perfect 16 is engineered for ultra-low air resistance and actually improves the performance efficiency of your heating and cooling system, whilst delivering proven and certified filtration of ultrafine particles.

The IQAir Perfect 16 is successfully used in the following industries:

The V2 Difference: Perfect Airflow

Most air filters have a single flat surface that fits squarely in the housing of the system. The Perfect 16’s filters are placed in a double “V” shape. The V2 design allows the Perfect 16 to use over 170 square feet of filter media. This

is 50 times more filtration material than that of an ordinary HVAC filter. The additional surface area allows more air to pass through the system. This innovative concept makes a big difference in how much air the Perfect 16 can clean.

Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration Technology

The IQAir Perfect 16 utilizes Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration Technology. The Perfect16‘s filter fibers are 10 times thinner than those used in standard air filters. This allows air to easily pass through the fibers, while the ultra-fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier for pollution particles. The result is an air filter that sets a new standard for air cleaning efficiency and airflow.

Filtration Technology

MERV 16 Rated

The IQAir Perfect 16 is the only MERV 16 rated whole-building air filtration system. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. The MERV system was created by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) to independently verify how well an air filtration system really cleans the air.  It’s independent test report concluded that the IQAir Perfect 16 achieved near perfect results.
