According to the test results, the IQAir Perfect 16 air cleaner is very effective for dust removal. However, without the addition of ultraviolet lights and a carbon element, the IQAir Perfect 16 becomes considerably less effective than the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit.
It is impressive that there is an actual test report available on the manufacturers website. So often, we find outrageous claims by air cleaner manufacturers with no testing to back up their features.
The IQAir Perfect 16 air cleaner is a well thought out product with features that make it very competitive with the Electro Breeze electronic air cleaner, but even with all those features and all the marketing behind them, you will still be money ahead by purchasing the Electro Breeze products.
Not considering the outrageous cost of the unit with its installation, the minimum cost of replacing the filters is in the neighborhood of $350 every three years. Notice that the 3-year lifespan of the filters is based on 50% usage. Your cost for the Electro Breeze replacement pads and bulb for three years would be almost half the cost of the replacement filters for the IQAir Perfect 16 air cleaner.
The cost for the IQAir Perfect 16 air cleaner plus the cost of a licensed contractor to modify your duct work to have it installed, can easily exceed the cost of purchasing the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit as outlined in the sales brochure. Suggested cost is $2,695 - $3,195.
Your purchase includes the Electro Breeze
air cleaner panel in your size, a UV germicidal lamp, mounting plate
assembly, monitor and five replacement pads. Change your first pad
after one month of use, then change out every 2-4 months, thereafter.
