HEPAirX: Room Air Purification
The HEPAirX® qualifies as a Class II medical device recirculating air cleaner.
Our new ventilating air purifier uses a “clean and green” approach to reduce indoor air pollutants that can trigger respiratory problems.
HEPAirX is the first and only patented indoor air quality product in America that is dedicated to improving the health of occupants by using fresh, outside air. The unit quickly and effectively dilutes, filters and reduces the indoor pollutants that are often cited as causes of asthma, respiratory irritations and allergic reactions.
Good indoor air quality (IAQ) is critical to maintaining good health. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, “Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home.”
Poor IAQ linked to the high incidence of asthma, a disease that afflicts more than 22 million Americans, including 6.5 million children.
HEPAirX is a uniquely packaged combination of an energy recovery ventilator, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration, heater and air conditioner that is conveniently window-mounted.
HEPAirX retails for $3,595 and may be ordered by calling toll-free 800-825-3268. The following credit cards are accepted: VISA; MasterCard; and, American Express.

HEPAirX® is a ventilating room-air purifier that quickly and effectively dilutes, filters and reduces indoor pollutants that are often cited as causes of asthma, respiratory irritations and allergic reactions.
The unit is a uniquely integrated combination of an energy recovery ventilator, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration, heater and air conditioner that is conveniently window-mounted. These features are important because they allow the room to be treated separately from the rest of the house. This prevents the home’s heating and cooling system from continuously re-contaminating the air with pollutants. Also, by isolating the room and providing a slight positive pressure, good air quality can be maintained by mixing and re-circulating room and fresh, outside air continuously through the HEPA filter.
HEPAirX is most effective in single-room settings, such as bedrooms where people spend large amounts of time. Additionally, the unit’s soothing “white noise” often blocks sounds outside or inside the house, which may help occupants sleep better.
Within minutes, the unit removes and reduces ultra-fine airborne particulates from cooking, sneezing and animal dander that drift around in the air for hours and are easily stirred up with minimum amount of activity. A second category of contaminants that HEPAirX addresses are gaseous compounds like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde. The VOCs are mostly by-products of chemicals used in fuels and building materials such as plastic and paint; even electronic equipment like computers continuously release VOCs over time.
HEPAirX is made to commercial standards for durability and longevity. For example, the exterior surfaces are powder-coated aluminum for weather resistance. Pre-filters help capture larger airborne particles such as animal dander. The unit, which runs on regular household current (115V), features cooling, heating or auto modes that are easily adjusted to the individual’s temperature preferences.
Subtle blue lights on the display panel continuously indicate room temperature and humidity levels. Air nozzles on the top of the unit are fully adjustable and direct the air in a 360-degree arc to maximize distribution throughout the room. Switches are conveniently located on the front control panel to adjust the re-circulating airflow from low to high speed and to change between occupied and unoccupied room use, for occupant comfort and for energy conservation.
A window sleeve, which supports the unit and facilitates installation, is included with purchase.
HEPAirX, manufactured at Air Innovations’ headquarters in North Syracuse, NY, is ETL certified to Underwriters’ Laboratories and Canadian performance and safety standards. The unit is patented in the United States and has been cleared for international registration in 33 European countries and Canada.
HEPAirX® has undergone several years of testing in the bedrooms of children who have physician-diagnosed asthma. Research results have been published in two peer-reviewed journals and have been presented at several international indoor air quality technical conferences. The studies show that, within minutes, the unit removes and reduces the kinds of pollutants that trigger respiratory irritations and can exacerbate the symptoms of asthma. These include ultra-fine airborne particulates from cooking, sneezing and animal dander that drift around in the air for hours and are easily stirred up with a minimum amount of activity. A second category of contaminants that HEPAirX addresses are gaseous compounds like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde.
The VOCs are mostly by-products of chemicals used in fuels and building materials such as plastics and paint. Even a computer contains hundreds of components that are made from organic compounds that will continuously release VOCs over time. The chart shows how, in laboratory testing, HEPAirX quickly reduced particle, gas and indoor allergen concentrations that are known to trigger asthmatic conditions.

HEPAirX combines a fresh, outside air ventilator with energy recovery, an air purifier using high-efficiency particulate air filtration (HEPA), and a heating and cooling unit into a window-mounted system. The system takes over complete environmental control of a room, managing temperature and high humidity as well as reducing airborne contaminants from such sources as cooking gases, household cleaning products and pet dander. What is unique about the unit is not the technology itself but rather the combination and orientation of those technologies and components. No chemicals are used and no ozone is created in the process, unlike other competitive products currently on the market.
It runs quietly because of its special fan design and because the compressor and condenser are located outside the window.
Typically, HEPAirX is mounted in the window frame of a bedroom. A specially designed sleeve facilitates installation so little window retrofitting required. No additional ductwork is required.
The machine, which weighs 118 pounds, is 22½” high x 23″ wide x 29″ long; minimum window opening required is 19½” high x 13½” wide.
A standard 115-volt, 3-prong electrical outlet is required (115v AC, 1 phase, 60 cycle). This outlet should be dedicated only to HEPAirX operation.
HEPAirX’s safety and performance is ETL certified to Underwriters’ Laboratories and Canadian standards. HEPAirX is patented in the USA and has been cleared for international registration in 33 European countries and Canada. Here is an overview of HEPAirX’s technical specifications and HEPAirX datasheet. For more information, read the HEPAirX Installation and Maintenance Guide.
