IQAir North America Introduces World's First Ultra-High Efficiency Whole-House Air Cleaning System

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., April 13 /-- IQAir North America, the industry leader in high-efficiency air cleaning products, announced today the introduction of their new whole-house air cleaning system. The system, named the PerfectHome, far exceeds the level of air cleaning effectiveness provided by any other whole-house air cleaning system. It is designed to be the ultimate high end air cleaning system for people with health conscious lifestyles.

The PerfectHome contains the world's most advanced two-stage filtration process. It captures micro-particles with its MERV 16 rated pre-filter. Then it eliminates nano-particles with its high-performance HyperHEPA filter. The PerfectHome is based on IQAir's patented technology used in hospitals to filter particles as small as Avian flu, SARS virus, and MRSA. The PerfectHome filters 100% of the air passing through a residential HVAC system, with a 99.97% efficiency for particles as small as 0.3 microns and 99.5% efficiency for particles down to 0.003 microns.

In addition to providing the highest level of air filtration efficiency, the PerfectHome also offers the lowest air resistance in the whole-house air cleaning market. Due to the PerfectHome's energy-efficient digital fan, the system provides up to 2,000 CFM of ultra-clean air with zero pressure drop.

"The performance of the PerfectHome is unprecedented," says Frank Hammes, President of IQAir. "Previously, this level of air filtration was only possible in multi-million dollar clean rooms. At an installed price starting at $7,500, this system addresses the absolute high end in the residential air cleaning market. It is for people who want and demand the very best in their homes."

IQAir first designed prototypes of their new air cleaning system almost two years ago for the popular reality television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The show's design team contacted IQAir and asked them to help build "America's Cleanest Home" for a young girl who had received a heart transplant. The results that IQAir and the show's design team produced were so extraordinary that Extreme Makeover was honored by the American Lung Association for their work.

On subsequent episodes of Extreme Makeover, IQAir was asked again by the show's design team to create ultra-high performance air cleaning systems for families with HIV, cancer, and other life-threatening conditions. Each episode gave IQAir the opportunity to further develop and refine the PerfectHome towards commercial introduction.

"After each episode, we received hundreds of phone calls from families that wanted this extraordinary air cleaning system. They saw us creating America's healthiest homes, and that is what they wanted," says Hammes.

IQAir believes that their new whole-house air cleaning systems will not only benefit individuals suffering from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions. They believe it will benefit everyone who is concerned with living a long and healthy life.

"We have taken our decades of experience and expertise to develop the PerfectHome," says Hammes. "For the first time, this product brings true medical grade air cleaning to homes."

IQAir is offering free nationwide one day training seminars for HVAC contractors to become certified to install the PerfectHome. Interested contractors can call IQAir at 1-800-500-4-AIR to register for the next training seminar in their area.
