Chapter 1 – Air Cleaning Systems and Indoor Air Quality
Chapter 1 – Air Cleaning Systems and Indoor Air Quality
1.1 Improving Indoor Air Quality
Air cleaning can play an important role when it comes to improving indoor air quality. However, it should be noted
that air cleaning should be used in conjunction with pollution source control and ventilation, wherever possible.
Strategy to improve indoor air quality
To tackle any indoor air quality problem, keep the following three-step strategy in mind:
1. Eliminate or reduce the air pollution source as much as possible. Source control is by far the most effective way to
improve indoor air quality, since it sets out to deal with air pollution at the point of origin.
2. Ensure that sufficient fresh air is entering the room from outside. Air cleaners are not a substitution for sufficient
ventilation. They are not able to reverse the conversion of oxygen (O2) into carbon dioxide (CO2), caused by
breathing and combustion processes.
3. Ensure the IQAir® system can clean enough air to cope with your room size. The actual hourly air volume cleaned
by the system should be at least double the air volume of your room. If the rate at which pollutants enter the room
air is high or the indoor air quality requirements are stringent, the hourly air delivery of the system needs to
exceed the room air volume several times.To achieve that level of air turnover, it may be necessary to employ more
than one system.
Air Cleaning Results
Although air cleaners may be advertised and sold to be suitable for use in specific indoor environments and to deal
with specific indoor air quality problems, the manufacturer and distributors make no claim as to the specific air
cleaning results that are achieved under the user’s individual operating conditions.The air quality improvements that
can be realized with the IQAir® system (as with any air cleaner) in indoor environments depends to a significant
degree on circumstantial factors which are out of the control of the manufacturer or distributors. Important factors
which will influence the air quality improvements that can be achieved in an indoor environment with an air cleaner
include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Type of air pollutants present
Intensity of the pollutant source(s)
Pollutant concentration
Size of the indoor environment (room size)
Operating speed of the unit
Number of air cleaners placed in the indoor environment
Saturation state of the filters in the air cleaner
Consult a qualified specialist to determine an effective and comprehensive indoor air quality strategy.

2.2 Choosing a Suitable Location
When choosing a suitable location for the IQAir® system, keep the following considerations in mind:
• Choosing the most suitable room for the system will depend on where you would like the focus of the air cleaning
•
•
•
efforts. Two main considerations are the time you spend in a particular room and the location of the main air
pollution sources. As a general rule, the closer the system is located to the air pollution source, the better the air
cleaning performance in the room.
Although an air cleaning result may be achieved in adjacent rooms, the main air cleaning will take place in the
room where the system is located. For the best air cleaning results in adjacent rooms, make sure that doors to
these rooms are left wide open.
For best performance, the system should be positioned at least 12 inches (1 foot) away from the nearest vertical
surface, such as a wall or a cupboard. In general, the more centrally the system is positioned, the better the
performance.
Position the system close to a power outlet and make sure that the power cable is positioned in a way that it does
not present an obstacle that could be tripped over.
Make sure that the system is positioned in such a way that the control panel is easily accessible.

Chapter 4 – Using the Control Panel
Menu Key
The Menu key allows access to any one of eleven menus. Pressing the Menu key once allows access to the first menu
function. Pressing the Menu key twice allows access to the second menu function, and so on. If no key is pressed for
15 seconds in a menu window, the display will revert to the main display window. Tip: If you are in a menu window
and would like to remain in the window for more than 15 seconds, keep the ▲ key depressed.
Enter Key
The Enter key, if pressed for 3 seconds, allows the modification of a setting.The enter mode is indicated by a flashing
cursor on the modifiable setting. Pressing the Enter key again will save any entry and move the cursor to the next
modifiable item in the display window.When the last modifiable choice in a window is confirmed with the Enter key,
the enter mode is automatically terminated and the new settings are saved.
Filter Life LEDs
Whenever the system is on, the color of the filter life LEDs (light emitting diodes) indicates the state of the individual
filters in the system. Note: The positions of the filter life LEDs on the control panel correspond to the actual positions
of the filters within the system.
The filter life indicator LEDs signal four possible stages in the life of the filter:
1. Green:
The filter is still within 80% of its estimated life span.
2. Orange:
The filter is approaching the last 20% of its estimated life span.
3. Red:
The filter has reached the end of its estimated life span.
4. Red blinking: The filter has passed its estimated life span and should be replaced immediately. The IQAir®
system’s effectiveness is likely to have been reduced dramatically, either due to a reduction in air
flow (particle filters are clogged) or a reduction in filter efficiency (gas phase filter is saturated).
Fan Speed LEDs
These LEDs simulate the fan speed through the frequency of their rotation. The faster the rotation of the fan speed
LEDs, the faster the actual fan speed of the unit.
4.2 Control Panel Locking Function
The control panel keys can be locked to avoid tampering with
the settings. To lock or unlock the control panel keys, the Menu
and the Enter key have to be pressed down simultaneously for
3 seconds.The activated locking function is indicated with a star

4.3 Fan Speed and Air Delivery
The IQAir® system can be set to run at six different fan speeds which correspond to six different air flow rates. Speed
1 is the lower, speed 6 the highest fan speed. 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
not only the fan speed, but also the air delivery rate (air flow). The displayed air flow is factory preset and is not
measured by the system itself.
4.3.1 Regulating Fan Speed
1. When the IQAir® system is switched off (standby mode), the first line of the
LCD display shows the model name. To switch the system on, press the
Power key on the far left of the control panel.
2. The LCD now displays the fan speed and the corresponding air flow rate.
Note: The system starts at the fan speed at which it was running when it
was last used.
3. To change the fan speed, press the ▲ key.

Chapter 4 – Using the Control Panel
4.3.2 Air Exchange Rates in Differently Sized Rooms
Any air cleaner can only be effective if it filters a sufficient amount of air in an indoor environment. 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. In order to achieve the desired number
of air changes, more than one air cleaner may be required.
The number of air changes that are necessary to attain a certain level of indoor air quality will depend on a variety
of factors, including:
• Intensity of air pollution source: The higher the rate at which air pollutants are produced or enter the indoor
environment, the higher the air cleaning rate in the room needs to be.
• Filtration efficiency for specific air pollutants: The lower the filtration efficiency for certain pollutants, the more
air changes are required to reduce these pollutants.
• Desired improvement in air quality: The higher the desired improvement in air quality, the more air changes are
required.
The number of air changes per hour (ACH) produced by an IQAir® system in a specific environment are calculated as
follows:
hourly air delivery of the IQAir® system (cfm)
= air changes per hour (ACH)
air volume of the room (cu.ft.)
N.B. The air delivery rates of the IQAir® system at the various fan speeds settings are listed on the “Technical
Specifications” sheet.
Example calculation: A room with the dimensions of 13 x 14 x 8.5 ft. has an air volume of 1,547 cu.ft. With an air
delivery rate of 140 cfm, the room air volume will be circulated over 5.4 times per hour by the
IQAir® system (140 cfm = 8,400 cu.ft/h; 8,400 cu.ft/h ÷ 1,547 cu.ft = 5.43 ACH).
4.4 Using the Menu Functions
The IQAir® control panel offers a choice of several menu options which allow access to the advanced features of the
system. In total there are eleven active menu functions. The functions can be accessed in standby or running mode.
4.4.1 Menu Overview

4.4.2 Filter Life Monitor
The IQAir® system is 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 or
replace 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 at any given time.
1. To reach the Filter Life Monitor display from the main display window,
press the Menu key once. The remaining life of the PreMaxTM filter
will appear.
2. Press the ▲ key to view the remaining life of the other filters in
the system.
3. The remaining life of the filter elements is expressed in hours of operation
at the current speed setting.
How the Filter Life Monitor Works
The basis for the calculation of the remaining filter life is the already elapsed operation time at the set fan speed. This
input is compared with an internal memory bank which contains information about the different filters’ lives under
specific conditions of use.
The Filter Life Monitor makes a calculation of the remaining filter life, taking into account not only past use of the
system, but also likely future use. As reference for future use, the Filter Life Monitor uses the fan speed which is set at
the time.
The relationship between the current fan speed and the remaining filter life displayed can be expressed as follows:
• The higher the current fan speed setting, the shorter the displayed remaining filter life.

Chapter 6 – Replacing Filters
The IQAir® system is equipped with a Filter Life Monitor which is designed to assist you in determining when a filter
element needs to be replaced. If the air pollution in your environment is very high, there is a possibility that the filter
elements may not be effective throughout the displayed life time and may have to be replaced earlier than indicated
by the Filter Life Monitor.
For this reason it is important to look out for the signs of used up filters. The main signs are:
•
•
•
•
Increased operating noise
Decreased air flow
Clogged filter elements
Increased odor presence
