As part of our ongoing series on air purifiers for coronavirus protection, we’ll be taking a look this week at IQAir’s lineup of HEPA units. Thanks to unique technology, this brand’s filters are capable of capturing smaller particles than most other major air purifier manufacturers, making them a good option for reducing your risks as the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to spread. Here’s what you need to know about using IQAir air purifiers to protect yourself from the rapidly spreading COVID-19 coronavirus.
As we’ve discussed in previous articles in this series, HEPA air filters are recommended for reducing coronavirus risks. This is because of their ability to trap extremely tiny particles, including many viruses, within the filter medium via a process known as diffusion. For this reason, many health officials and healthcare providers have chosen to use high-quality HEPA air purifiers as part of their response to this crisis.
With all that said, you may be wondering what makes IQAir different from other HEPA-filtered air purifiers. The answer lies in the company’s proprietary HyperHEPA technology. While the basic standard for a HEPA rating is for a filter to capture 99.97 percent of particles greater than 0.3 microns in diameter, IQAir’s filters far surpass this standard. Using the company’s HyperHEPA system, IQAir’s units are able to filter out 99.5 percent of particles down to 0.003 microns. This makes IQAir one of the best brands for capturing extremely small airborne particles.
Which IQAir Air Purifiers Are Best for Coronavirus Protection?
For reducing your risk of catching or transmitting the COVID-19 coronavirus, we recommend using the IQAir HealthPro or HealthPro Plus models. Both of these HyperHEPA-equipped purifiers are good options for removing airborne particles. For more broad-spectrum protection from both particles and gaseous pollutants, consider using the IQAir GC Multigas.
