The ICON has advanced state of the art ART™ (Air Replacement Technology) replacing the stale air in your home with healthy fresh air. The ICON is the world's first home health care product to feature ART™ in a compact unit with the power to deliver clean, fresh, healthy air through your entire home.
The ICON features the same proven technology used in the most demanding healthcare applications by world-renowned hospitals and pharmaceutical laboratories to deliver air that is 99.999% contaminant free. The clean air that gently flows from the ICON is more than 100 times cleaner than the air from the best recirculating air purifiers on the market. For the first time ever, this technology is available for your home.
Unlike ordinary air purifiers that continuously recirculate the same air, the ICON begins the clean air delivery process with fresh outdoor air that is free of indoor airborne pollution. By starting with cleaner air from the outside, the ICON has a head start on delivering the cleanest air possible to your home.
According to the EPA, “indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times—and occasionally more than 100 times—higher than outdoor pollutant levels. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health. Usually the best way to address this risk is to control or eliminate the source of pollutants and ventilate a home with clean outdoor air.”
The outside air slowly flows through a pre-filter that catches any large particles before entering the ICON, prolonging the life of the HEPA filter. The air is then conditioned to ambient room temperature and humidity level, to efficiently work with existing cooling and heating systems. This conditioning process gives you clean, fresh air regardless of the temperature and humidity outside.
Next, the outdoor air is passed through the ICON’s patented L-FAST™ (Laminar Flow Air Sterilization Technology) sterilization chamber, which uses high-output medical grade UV germicidal lamps and laminar flow technology to eliminate any harmful organisms and pathogens. This sterilization process eliminates microscopic contaminants such as airborne viruses, bacteria, fungus, and mold, which may be too small for a filter to catch. The ICON eliminates these harmful organisms, which would slip through an ordinary recirculating air purifier, before they enter the home. For the first time ever, this proven technology has been assembled into a compact and portable system designed for your home, previously only available for commercial-grade units over ten times the cost of the ICON.
Stop Recirculating Harmful Bacteria Viruses & Mold
Ordinary recirculating air purifiers pull harmful living organisms like viruses and mold into their filters, but many of these tiny particles pass right through the filter back into your room. Even if they are large enough to be caught by the filter, they remain alive inside the unit. The heat from the electric motor inside the unit creates an ideal breeding ground for harmful living organisms, such as viruses, mold and fungus to multiply. Instead of eliminating these harmful living organisms, ordinary air purifiers simply move them from place to place. Furthermore, when the filter is changed many of these harmful microscopic organisms are released back into your indoor environment.
Slower Is Better
Faster air flow does not equal cleaner air. The ICON uses the same air flow technology used in hospital operating rooms. Most recirculating air purifiers simply don’t use UV technology and can’t kill harmful airborne organisms. And, those with UV lamps are inherently ineffective given high speed air flows. The ICON’s low air flow keeps the air in the sterilization chamber long enough to destroy harmful airborne contaminants before starting the filtering process.
After passing through the sterilization chamber, the air slowly flows through a special activated charcoal filter designed specifically for the ICON. This process stops harmful outdoor airborne gases, such as vehicle fumes, before they enter your home.
The ICON features a sub-micron HEPA filter designed specifically for the ICON’s low-flow design. This filter features the highest rating of any air purifier on the market and is 100 times more efficient at capturing particles than any recirculating air purifier. Each ICON filter is tested, certified and serialized to guarantee that it meets the strict standards of its MERV 19 rating. Until now, this level of quality and efficiency was only available to the world’s top hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturing laboratories.
The Quietest Compact Clean Air Delivery System Available
The ICON uses one of the quietest fans on the market, which creates a gentle, soothing sound, similar to that of a ceiling fan—much quieter than ordinary recirculating air purifiers with faster air flow.
The ICON delivers cleaned air to your home that is 99.999% pure. This revolutionary process allows the ICON to deliver the highest quality fresh air of any compact system on the market today.
What Does 99.999% Mean for Me?
The tiny particles that ordinary air purifiers miss are also the most harmful. When inhaled, these microscopic particles that are invisible to the naked eye can penetrate deep into your lungs, where they may cause acute or chronic health conditions. Coarse particles do not penetrate as far into the lungs and tend to settle in the upper respiratory tract. Unlike the smaller particles, the larger particles are more easily trapped in the nose and throat and expelled by coughing, sneezing, or swallowing. The ICON eliminates the contaminants that are the most harmful to you and your family, creating the safest indoor environment possible.
Step 1: With slight positive pressure, existing airborne contaminants are pushed out through the small crevices and openings in your home, replaced with clean, fresh air.
Step 2: The ICON provides an invisible barrier to protect your home from outside contaminants, such as vehicle fumes, smog, and dust, from re-entering your home.
One ICON can provide clean, fresh air for areas up to 10,000 sq. feet. Even placing an ordinary room air purifier in every room of your home cannot provide the protection and clean, fresh air provided by a single ICON. No other portable system offers this much coverage and the ICON is conveniently mounted in a window, so it doesn’t take up space like ordinary air purifiers. This is the first time that this technology has been available for your home in one compact and portable unit. Unlike most whole-home air purifiers that require expensive and complicated permanent installations, you can bring your ICON with you if you decide to move to a new home.
The ICON is 100% automated and requires no complicated manuals to operate. The ICON is window-mounted, and does not require any complex and costly installation with existing heating and cooling systems. Once installed, just press the power button on your ICON , and it will go to work replacing your home's air with cleaned air. The ICON conditions the humidity and temperature of the air entering your home for various climate conditions, ensuring well-balanced and healthy air for your indoor environment. The ICON is designed to run continuously for two years without a change of filter.
