IQAir GC Multigas
It has a pre-filter to remove any larger particles from the air. There is also a post filter that will trap any remaining particles. This makes the IQAir Multigas great at particle filtration too.
The pre-filter is about $70. It will last 6 - 18 months.
The post-filter is about $96. It will last 1 - 2 years.
The GC gas cartridge is about $295 and it will last 1 - 3 years.
It is hard to say exactly how long each filter will last. It depends on the environment. So your cost to maintain this air purifier will vary.
To find a ballpark figure, we assume a pre-filter will last 1 year, the post filter 2 years and the GC gas cartridge 2 years. This would give us an average cost of $265 each year.
It has a programmable 6 speed fan. It can run at different speeds at different times of the day.
The Multigas is 28 inches X 15 inches X 16 inches (H X L X W). It weighs about 40 pounds.

We are also happy to note that the Multigas also provides excellent particle filtration. We are impressed because this machine filters out chemicals and allergens.
We would recommend this machine to everyone. However, because of the higher price, we recommend you purchase this only if you need chemicals removed from the air. For allergens you should look into the Healthpro Plus
