The IQAir GC Multigas Air Purifier is the best choice for those who suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS).
Every day, each of us is exposed to thousands of substances that we eat, touch or breathe. MCS or Multiple Chemical Sensitivity can occur when an individual experiences symptoms such as joint pain, muscle pain, rash or itching, headache, fatigue, sore throat, flushing and nausea (just to name a few) during an exposure to these chemicals. These 'MCS-triggers' can be found in every day substances and products such as cleaning products & chemicals, offgasing from carpeting, furniture and upholstery, solvents, work-related chemicals, etc. Repeated exposure to these chemicals and their chemical composition in small insidious doses (or one large dose) can cause progressive tissue inflammation and can become chronic when the chemical exposure finally leads to tissue damage, nerve damage, organ damage and auto immune damage.
The IQAir GC Multigas air purifier is designed specifically for those individuals who have become sensitized to every day substances and who experience the symptoms of MCS.
Featured GC MultiGas Air Filtration Technology
- HyperHEPA particle filtration (An IQAir Exclusive!) - The first stage of filtration features a powerful HyperHEPA® pre-filter that removes particles of all sizes, including ultrafine particles.
- Cartridge-based activated carbon adsorption -Only the highest-grade activated carbon is used to filter volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are responsible for odors.
- Cartridge-based chemisorption - This stage destroys harmful chemicals, such as formaldehyde, by an oxidation process inside a chemically active alumina pellet.
- Post-filter sleeve - Finally, a post-filter sleeve wraps each gas cartridge to prevent media dust from being released.
Additional Features of the IQAir GC MultiGas Room Air Purifier
Targeted Technology - Different indoor environments have different air cleaning needs. IQAir® has custom designed specific air purifier models to target specific groups of air pollutants. This approach maximizes effectiveness and minimizes cost.
Molecular Control - In addition to removing pollution particles, such as dust, bacteria and viruses, select IQAir models are highly effective in removing molecular air pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other gaseous chemicals and unpleasant odors.
Ultra-Quiet Design - IQAir's "fan-in-center" design places the fan motor in-between sound attenuating filters. The double-walled housing effectively reduces sound transmission. Rubber suspension pads systematically isolate motor vibration from the air cleaner housing. The result is an air purifier quiet enough for even the most noise sensitive environments.
Advanced Controls - Every IQAir room air purifier features six fan speeds and allows you to program the system for automatic operation via a day/night timer. The intelligent filter life monitor precisely forecasts filter replacement based on actual usage. A sleek remote control allows you to operate the air purifier from the comfort of your couch.
World-Class Performance - Swiss Quality - IQAir makes the only individually tested and certified air cleaners available for home use. Each air cleaner is individually tested and certified before it leaves the factory in Switzerland. Your IQAir air cleaner arrives to you with a hand-signed certificate of performance so that you will know the exact efficiency of your air cleaner.
