TThe IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifiers take in air through dual arches at the bottom of the unit. The air first passes through the PreMax pre-filter(1) which captures micro-particles such as pollen, pet dander and mold spores. Air is then drawn through the fan and into the HyperHEPA filter(2) which eliminates bacteria, viruses and combustion particles from automobiles and smoke, through a nano-fiber structure. Clean, purified air is vented through the 320° EvenFlow™ diffuser at top of unit. The air outlet diffuser is designed to outflow low turbulence, low velocity air which creates less noise.

IQAir air purifiers are equipped with an electronic Filter Life Monitor that calculates the remaining life of the system’s filter elements. Thanks to the filter life monitor, the user does not have to guess when filters need to be replaced orreplace them at fixed intervals (which rarely correspond to the actual amount of use). The filter life monitor watches over the most important factors affecting the life of the individual filter elements. The filter life monitor display shows the remaining life of each individual filter elements at any given time.

IQAir and AllergyBuyersClub recommend running your IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifier for 10 hours a day on speed setting 3. Thanks to its superior performance and filtration, it does not need to be run 24 hours, 7 days a week. The average filter life for 10 hours of use per day on speed setting 3 is outlined below.
    PreMax Pre-Filter: 18 months
    HyperHEPA Filter: 4 years

IQAir air purifiers can be set to run at six different fan speeds which correspond to six different air flow rates. The higher the fan speed, the more room air will be filtered by the system. The high fan speed settings provide additional air cleaning power to deal with situations of elevated pollution levels. To allow better evaluation of the system’s performance at different fan speeds, the standard display window shows fan speed and the air delivery rate (air flow).

For general air cleaning purposes, the IQAir system should be able to filter the room air volume at least twice every hour on the set fan speed to achieve a significant air quality improvement. If the intensity of the pollution source is high or a high degree of purification is needed, more air changes may become necessary.

Under normal conditions, IQAir and AllergyBuyersClub recommend running your IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifier for 10 hours a day on speed setting 3 in a room around 500 sq. ft. with an 8 ft ceiling. Thanks to its superior performance and filtration ability, it does not need to be ran 24 hours, 7 day a week to sufficiency clean the air in a room.

Using the daily & weekly programmable timer functions will help operate your IQAir air purifier at maximum efficiency, in accordance with your lifestyle. The programmable timer allows you to select a start time, end time and speed setting for the air purifier to operate at each day, Monday through Sunday.

Engineered and built at the Hammes family factory in Switzerland, each IQAir air purifier is an example of Swiss precision engineering, superior craftsmanship, and continuous research and development. The Swiss IQAir production facility only uses the finest components, and great attention to detail is given to each IQAir system built (much like a fine Swiss watch). Swiss quality assurance provides you with the very best air cleaner you'll ever own.

We were very happy when IQAIR developed the HealthPro Compact air purifier. The HealthPro Compact air purifier is not as tall as the standard HealthPro, yet delivers the same air cleaning performance along with the features and quality we have become accustomed to enjoying from an IQAir air purifier.


  • The IQAir HealthPro Compact uses a robust pre-filter that is a high efficiency, high-capacity, tightly pleated filter. It captures over 90% of all dust and prolongs the life and performance of the HyperHEPA filter by a factor of 10.
  • The IQAir HealthPro Compact's HyperHEPA filter has a micro-particle retention rate up to 100 times higher than regular HEPA filters providing cleaner air than any comparable HEPA air purifier.
  • Though smaller in size, the IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifier uses the same fan and technology as the larger models and can clean an area of up to 1238 square feet (on speed 6 achieving 2 air changes per hour.) Maximum room coverage reduces in size depending on speed setting and desired air changes.
  • The IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifier is good for bedroom use with lower than average noise level on the first two fan speeds, on the third speed it is a pleasant quiet background hum, speed 4 is a bit noisy but some users will tolerate it, and like all HEPA air purifiers, it is fairly noisy on speed 5 & 6 so you would probably want to use it on speed 6 when you are not in the room or at home.
  • One of the big pluses of the IQAIR HealthPro Compact is its control options. While we did not see the need for the remote control, we were impressed with the ability to set the machine to go on and off at certain pre-designated times and fan speeds. The four key touch pad displays the programming timer status, filter life and status, and fan speed.
  • The HealthPro Compact's filters stack up modular fashion and can be changed in a matter of seconds with no tools necessary. They also are changed separately on an as needed basis which off-set the fairly high price of the filters if you were to buy them together. Average annual filter replacement costs are approximately $128.17.
  • IQAir constructs their air purifiers from non-off gassing ABS materials that are UV stabilized and high impact resistant. They only use healthy filtration technologies, adding no ozone, ions, UV or chemicals into the air you breathe.
  • The IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifier has a three-dimensional seal between the filter element and the housing of the air cleaner that does not allow any air to by-pass the filters so all the air is cleaned.
  • Filter change indicators are provided for both pre-filter and HyperHEPA filter. The filter indicator displays green until 20% of the filter life remains, orange when 20% remains, red when 10% remains, and flashing red when none remains which is when you should replace it. In good practice, you should order your replacement filter when the indicator is orange or red.
  • IQAir is a top-notch air purifier manufacturer who has been in business since the 1960’s selling air purifying products in hospitals and industrial cleanrooms.
  • Each IQAir HealthPro Compact air purifier is measured at the factory and certified by the quality control engineer who tested it. Included in each box is a certificate of performance in air delivery, filter leakage, and particle filtration efficiency.
  • IQAir will cover the HealthPro Compact for a full 5 years against defect in parts and labor since they consist of the highest quality components and are assembled in Switzerland with great care, pride, and attention to detail.
  • IQAir designs and manufactures all of their filters so you can be assured of the quality which includes the completion of the tight seal to the housing to eliminate air bypassing and attain 100% filtration.
  • Although it costs more than most air purifiers on the market, what IQAir provides in the way of quality, design, and filtration performance vastly outweighs the higher price tag. An IQAir air purifier is an investment in your health that is worth every penny.


  • If quiet is the paramount feature you are looking for above all else, the HealthPro Compact is not our quietest air purifier, although it is far from the noisiest especially when run on the lower fan speeds.
  • It would be nice if it had an automatic setting including dust & odor sensors to regulate the fan speed.
  • The HealthPro Compact does not have any gas filtration, however the Compact can be upgraded to the Plus model simply by replacing the PreMax pre-filter with the combination gas & pre-filter and does not require any reprogramming or replacement of the control panel. The combination pre-filter contains 2 pounds of carbon.


If you suffer from allergies and want the 'best of the best' particle filtration that will remove large and ultrafine particles including viruses, cat allergens, bacteria/germs, house dust mite allergens, exhaust fumes, smog, soot and other super fine particles, the HealthPro Compact is exactly what you need. If you are looking for all around air purification of particles and gas & odor control we recommend the HealthPro Compact Plus which uses carbon in its pre-filter. However, if the main concern is allergens and harmful particles, the HealthPro Compact is the more affordable option. You can always replace the standard PreMax pre-filter with the combination gas & pre-filter if gas and odor filtration becomes a concern.
