Air Oasis air purifiers provide a unique and highly advanced method of purifying your air. In this video, we discuss the uses (with examples) and operation of the AO1000 G3. Also discussed are other models including the AO3000 G3, AO3000 G3 Extreme, and the commercial AO5000.
In depth look at the filters of the IQAir HealthPro Plus. I also demonstrate how to remove the filters for replacement. This unit has four stages of filtration: PreMax Filter, Carbon, Chemisorption, and “HyperHEPA”. These are each described along with the overall operation of the unit.
Hey, everybody. Weâ€™re back again with the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. We did a part one, a video review and a demonstration at to how the unit works. Ran the unit for a little while on three different settings to give everybody an idea of how loud it is. I would like to take this apart and show you what the filters look like, so letâ€™s jump into it. Filter â€¦ this is the remote â€¦ filter removal is pretty simple with the IQAir unit. You just pull away these two retaining features. Then, thereâ€™s a lid. Iâ€™m doing this as gracefully as I can on video. Weâ€™re going to show the reverse of the airflow, because you take it apart from the top down.
The air comes in from the bottom and goes up through the various filters through the four stage filtration. The last filter that it goes through is a HEPA filter. It actually is â€¦ I mentioned in the first video, IQAir calls this hyper HEPA. As you can see, this is a pretty substantial filter. It takes out .003 micron and larger particles, so itâ€™s actually far beyond the HEPA standard. As you can see, itâ€™s several inches thick, has a pleated material. If you calculated out the square footage of all the pleated media in here, youâ€™re really going to have quite a bit of square feet of filtration media. Thatâ€™s the hyper HEPA.
The next one down is the activated carbon and chem absorption layer. This is the layer that gets out the â€¦ a lot of the odors. Actually, thatâ€™s the purpose of this layer. This is a HealthPro Plus that we have here. If you have a HealthPro, or if youâ€™re looking at the HealthPro, it does not come with this layer. There it is, about five pounds of activated charcoal. Iâ€™ll take that out. Youâ€™ll probably hear the pelletized carbon rattling around in there. I very much like the set-up of the IQAir and how it gets the air through these, basically, five cells of carbon.
Lastly, is the pre-filter. IQAir calls it the pre-max filter. To get that out, without [inaudible 0:02:54] the motor up. This is the motor assembly. The pre-filter, obviously, goes before the motor, keeps all the junk out of the motor thatâ€™s going to potentially jam it up. Takes out the larger pollen; takes out hair, human hair, dog hair, big pet dander, that sort of thing. Letâ€™s have a look at that real quick. Just slides out. There are some retaining features here to keep this in, four retaining clips. Looks a lot like the HEPA filter, but itâ€™s not. Itâ€™s more coarser than the HEPA filter.
Again, the purpose of this is to keep the big material out so that it can go through the other filtration. Thatâ€™s it. There are your filters and how they come out of an IQAir HealthPro Plus. If you have any questions, certainly give us a call. I really encourage you to take a look at BetterHealthInnovations.com. There we have the entire IQAir line, including this unit, of course. We also have their multi-gas series, which weâ€™ll probably do a video on that sometime in the future. Until then, everybody have a great day.

We review the popular IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. Along with the overall description of the unit, I run it on three different settings so you can get an idea of how quiet the unit is. Before you invest in any air purifier/filter, I strongly recommend that you watch this video so you can get an idea how the IQAir unit functions and how it can solve your air quality issues.

Hey, everybody. As you know, air quality is a big concern of a lot of people. Probably for you, if youâ€™re watching this video. Lately, weâ€™ve had a lot of customers come in looking for a high quality air purification unit. They may suffer from allergies, or they might just want to live a healthier life and breathe cleaner air. Thereâ€™s an awful lot of obviously pollen, awful lot of various kinds of particulate matter floating around in the air. All the way down to very, very small and fine particles, and there was recently a study that talked about how dangerous these very fine particles are.
What I want to talk about, both for people who have allergies and those who just want to get rid of odors in their home or office or for those who just want to live a lot healthier life. I wanted to walk through the IQAir HealthPro Plus. IQAir, made in Switzerland. Certainly, one of the top units on the market today, maybe the top for a portable type unit that you can just place into your home. The HealthPro Plus features four stages of filtration. Unlike a lot of their competitors, they bring in the air from the bottom of the unit. You think about all those particles floating around in the air. Theyâ€™re all going to ground eventually.
A lot of them are obviously going down towards the floor and towards the lowest surface that they can go. The IQAir unit is actually sucking those in. Sucking in, what I would say, a more denser air mixture of particles. That air is brought up through the unit, goes through four stages of filtration, and then itâ€™s exhausted. The clean air comes out through the top of the unit, all the way around. Almost 360 degrees blowing out that clean air into your environment. The filtration stages, thereâ€™s a pre-filter that gets out big particles like pollen, pet dander, hair, that sort of thing.
The second level of filtration in the HealthPro Plus unit is activated carbon. Carbon has been used for lots and lots of years. This unit here has five pounds of carbon. That takes out a lot of the odors out of the air. Carbon has been a really traditional means of cleaning your air. When you have a big cell of carbon going through, not just a mesh coated with carbon, it really eliminates all those odors in your air or most the odors [inaudible 0:02:43]. There is a chem absorption layer of filtration. That takes out chemical smells. It can take out formaldehyde. It can take out other chemical type of things.
Then, what IQAir terms as a hyper HEPA filter. Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve heard the word HEPA. There are different levels of HEPA, but generally HEPA filtration is units that can get out particles that are .3 microns or larger. IQAir really takes that to the next level. Theyâ€™re taking out particles that are .003 microns or larger. With that kind of HEPA, youâ€™re getting the fine particles out that are floating around in the air that can really cause some serious health problems. I wanted to do a little demonstration here. A lot of folk are worried about how loud these are. With the new addition IQAir, itâ€™s an extremely quiet unit. There are six different fan speeds. Iâ€™m not going to go through all six of these, but I will go through three. Iâ€™ll go through the lowest, the mid-range, and then the highest.
It is a little bit difficult to capture sound like this on video. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m not wearing a mike like I usually do. Instead, I have a microphone set up in front of us. Hopefully, weâ€™ll capture this pretty well. Letâ€™s go for the lowest setting. I donâ€™t know if you could really hear that. I really didnâ€™t hear much. The lowest setting, obviously, isnâ€™t moving as many cubic feet of air as the higher settings. Letâ€™s try the mid-range setting. You will be able to hear this, if you didnâ€™t hear the first one. Lastly, of course, Iâ€™ll put on the highest level. After I do that, then Iâ€™ll tell you how you actually use these levels on a normal basis.
On that highest level, you could hear it. You probably wouldnâ€™t want that running all the time, unless you want some white noise or something in the background when youâ€™re trying to sleep. It is loud. Itâ€™s not really disturbing loud. Itâ€™s not like thereâ€™s bells going off. Itâ€™s just kind of a white noise in the background sort of thing. Typically, you wonâ€™t need to run the unit at that high of a level. What I usually do, and actually what we did here in this video studio overnight, is you run it at the highest level for 12 hours, 24 hours. You get out most of the particulates in the room, and then just run it on a maintenance setting. Just run it on either the lowest or second to lowest just to keep the clean air â€¦ or to keep the air in the room clean.
Youâ€™ve already gotten rid of the bulk of the stuff in there. Certainly, it varies from environment to environment to environment. As you could hear as I ran the lowest and even the middle setting, itâ€™s really not disruptive if youâ€™re watching TV or reading a book or sleeping. Itâ€™s certainly not a disruptive. Itâ€™s certainly not a loud sound. I really appreciate the quietness of this unit, but I also appreciate that thereâ€™s an option where you can crank this thing up and really change over the air in a room very quickly. Thereâ€™s also a comprehensive set of controls on the HealthPro Plus. With this unit, you are able to set up a timer to go off certain days of the week, certain times to run the air.
You can run it on higher levels when youâ€™re not home, for example, so youâ€™re not listening to it. It also has the filter life, which is based on hours of operation. There is, the IQAir HealthPro Plus. Weâ€™re going to be doing a lot more air purifier videos. We already have a couple on the channel now. If you like, Iâ€™d sure appreciate it if you would subscribe to the channel. Itâ€™s the IQAir HealthPro Plus. I really say you canâ€™t go wrong with this. Iâ€™ve used these in the office, used these in the home. Visit us Amazon’s IQAir Category for more information about the entire line of IQAir. Everybody, have a great day.
We had put up a video earlier about the Austin Air Healthmate, and received some questions on the filter itself. In this video I remove the filter from the unit and describe it’s construction and how it can help solve your air quality issues.

Hey, everybody. A short time back, we did a quick overview or review of the Austin Healthmate Plus Jr. Unit. Of course, itâ€™s very similar to the full size Healthmate unit. This one here handles about 700 square feet. The full size Healthmate handles about 1500 square feet. Weâ€™re using this, because it fits on the table better. We did get a lot of question about whatâ€™s the filter like inside of that thing, so we thought that certainly we should do another video to show what the filter actually looks like inside of the unit. Letâ€™s go down this. Iâ€™m going to try to gracefully get the filter out on video.
Basically, you just turn the unit over, and I have already done this. Thereâ€™s four screws on the back. I already took them out. The bottom panel pops off and out comes the filter. There you go. What weâ€™re trying to say in the last video is this air purifier is truly an air purifier. Much different than the type of units that youâ€™ll get at a discount store or at a general that, yes it might be significantly less expensive than this unit, but if you just have a media in there which is basically like a paper or cloth where the manufacturer just sprayed it with carbon. Then, they put up there that itâ€™s carbon filter, not really a carbon filter like this.
The Healthmate and Healthmate Plus, which is this unit, it has four levels of filtration. First, it has this media in here which is, I would say, little bit less than a quarter inch thick. Thatâ€™s the media. As the air goes in there, thatâ€™s really just to take out the big things; air, big pet dander, that sort of thing. Then, within this filter it has â€¦ the next stage of filtration will get out the bigger chunks like pollen and that sort of large chunks, but not as big as dog hair that will already be out. The third level of filtration is six and a half pounds of activated charcoal. Thatâ€™s quite a bit of activated charcoal, and itâ€™s the Austin Air specialized blend of charcoal.
Following that, thereâ€™s a pleated HEPA filtration filter inside of there, so youâ€™re getting true HEPA. This, of course as I said, is a Jr. unit, so you get six and a half pounds of activated charcoal. With the fill size Austin Air unit, you get 15 pounds of activated charcoal. Thatâ€™s it. Thatâ€™s the filter for the Austin Air Healthmate Plus. If you have any questions, certainly let us know. Remember at Better Health Innovations, you can try this thing out. Try one of these units out for a full 90 days. If you donâ€™t like it, you can just send it back. Austin Air also warranties their filters for five years, which is pretty much unheard of in the air purifier industry. As always, everybody have a great day.
