I decided to turn to IQAir for whole house filtration because their system is superior to anything else on the market, and they measure and guarantee the results. Since my husband has a compromised immune system and is susceptible to secondary infections, you can imagine I did not want to leave anything to chance. While my expectations were high before the consultation, I confess that afterwards I was awestruck. The IQair testing team crawled all over my home identifying all my air leaks in such places as electrical wall sockets, spot lamp ceiling sockets, the laundry flex hose and under the sinks. The team put in foam to plug the leaks and a permanent dryer vent hose. We ended up using three IQAir Perfect 16 Whole House Air Purification units in my house which is a bit larger than average.
Before the installation of the IQAir Perfect 16 system, I had several room air purifiers going 24 hours in the house which has cathedral ceilings. Using the Perfect 16 system, we achieved a 90% reduction in room particle count in the house and the air coming out of my ducts measured zero which is quite astonishing. I think if it were not for 2 lively Siamese cats in the space, the room particle count would be even closer to zero, and even so, it gets pretty darn close. If you wonder whether the IQAir system is worth the extra cost, take into account that in addition to superior filtration media it pumps out 6 air changes per hour which is unheard of for a whole house air purification system. The net effect of this is a paucity of dust, which by doing the traditional finger dust test, you really have to search hard to find.
On a personal level, I am profoundly grateful that there is an air purification system which can take care of my husband. When the love of your life is dying, I wanted to make sure he had the best protection I could find for him. The by product from all this is I have never felt better with my own allergies, now under control with this super clean air. If someone in your life has a compromised immune system and is susceptible to infections, I can only tell you that this product is literally a life saver and you will be thrilled with the results.
