Up to 11% more clean air
The New Edition GC MultiGas features the most powerful fan ever used in a residential room air purifier. That power translates into even better air cleaning results. The new three-dimensionally optimized design now uses state-of-the-art aerodynamics to convert energy into more air and less noise. We also improved the HyperHEPA® filter pleating design, which increases the filter surface area of the filter. The result of these improvements is up to 11% more clean air.
Proven performance against ultrafine particles
Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns. By sheer number, about 90% of all airborne particles are this size. The primary source of ultrafine particles is combustion from motor vehicles, refineries, industrial plants and even cooking. Viruses are also ultrafine particles. The small size of ultrafine particles enables them to be easily inhaled, deposited into the lungs and absorbed into the blood. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.
Manufacturers of ordinary air filtration systems claim only that their systems filter particles larger than 0.3 microns. IQAir is different. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the GC MultiGas is proven and certified to filter at least 95% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Independent testing by laboratories and government agencies verifies the effectiveness of IQAir technology against ultrafine particles. When it comes to protection against ultrafine particulates, IQAir is the proven choice.
Powerful gas and odour removal
The GC MultiGas packs the air cleaning capacity of more than 100 gas masks.
Highest amount of micropores
The activated carbon used in IQAir’s GC MultiGas media is activated in a way to preserve the maximum number of micropores.
IQAir looks beyond theoretical claims, testing the performance of each individual GC MultiGas system at the factory to ensure that it meets our strict specifications. The results of the tests are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is included with every air purifier. No GC MultiGas air purifier will be shipped from the factory unless it is certified to provide a minimum of 99% efficiency against particles.
Up to 13% longer filter life
IQAir’s New Edition air purifiers feature the most advanced filter-pleating pattern ever designed for a residential system. This technology not only increases airflow, but also increases particulate loading capacity by 13% on the H11 HyperHEPA pre-filter. This saves you money and reduces the frequency of filter replacements.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
A significant number of individuals suffer from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), characterized by elevated sensitivities to household chemicals. Symptoms can include eye irritation, wheezing, fatigue, rhinitis, sore throat or cough, skin rashes and other symptoms. The best strategy for treating MCS is to avoid the airborne contaminants and chemicals that trigger the illness and reactions. Because indoor air pollution concentrations are typically much higher than outdoor air pollution levels, “air-filtration devices that remove both particulate and chemical substances from breathable indoor air usually benefit MCS patients considerably,” one leading medical expert concluded.
Reviewers rate IQAir air purifiers as the best systems available for MCS sufferers. Most other air purifiers simply are not effective enough to make a real difference in the quality of the air an MCS sufferer breathes. Equally important, IQAir does not use any technologies that add additional MCS triggers into the air, such as ozone or chemicals. And IQAir products are constructed of computer-grade ABS plastics that do not “off-gas” into the air.
