Product Detail
 
 
Outperforms other top-rated air purifier models in toxin tests!

Nearly 100% effective in clinical tests, and five times more effective in toxin removal test than the competition. Also killed 100% of aspergillus mold in clinical tests. See the "Test Results" tab for more details about the testing.

 

  • Odor, dust and allergen sensors let you know when certain pollutants are detected, such as cigarette smoke, chemicals, dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold spores and many more.
  • The clean air monitor tells you how clean or polluted the air is, removing the guesswork.
  • Select "Automatic" mode to maximize performance and energy savings, while keeping sound level as low as needed. Fan speed is automatically adjusted according to pollution level.
  • Diagnostic sensors indicate when to replace filters, and when to clean the metal dust collector grid.
  • The UV light and negative ion indicators let you know that these functions are working, and indicate when the UV lamp needs to be replaced, so it is not left in too long or replaced prematurely.

The washable pre filter does not require replacement, and enhances the durability and performance of the other filters. Pre-filters are recommended by the Dept. of Homeland Security.

Electrostatically-charged dust collection grid effectively traps charged particles & pollutants like a magnet. Simply wipe clean when dirty. In a study by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, electrostatic precipitation was found to be the more effective in purifying the air than any other filter type.

Activated carbon filter traps chemicals, gases and odors. Recommended by the Centers of Disease Control, Dept. of Health and Human Services and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. (More Info)

Long-lasting, high-efficiency HEPA filter - most effective way to capture dust and allergens. Recommended by the Dept. of Homeland Security and Centers of Disease Control. (More Info)

Photocatalytic oxidation (TiO2) filter which effectively reduces chemicals, bacteria and odors. Found to be highly effective in tests commissioned by the U.S. Dept. of Energy. (More Info)

Germicidal UV lamp destroys micro-organisms. Recommended by the Centers of Disease Control and the Air Institute of Respiratory Education. (More Info)

Air-cleaning negative ions are circulated throughout the room. Completely safe (virtually no ozone), and scientifically proven to be effective and to enhance filter efficiency. Found to be highly effective in multiple U.S. Dept. of Agriculture studies. (More Info)


The Multiple Air Inlet Design enables maximum air flow through the unit. The powerful, yet quiet fan accelerates the purified air throughout the room.

Economical. The Intelli-Pro is energy efficient, and uses sensor technology to reduce electricity usage. Offers low-cost replacement filter and UV lamp.

Quiet. Features "Quiet" setting to maintain peace and tranquility in room. Still fairly quiet even on "High" setting though.

 


What Sensor Technology Does for You:

 

Odor, Dust & Allergen Sensors -
Know which airborne pollutants are present.

The Intelli-Pro has sensors to detect odors (such as chemicals and cigarette smoke), dust and allergens (such as pollen, pet dander, ragweed and mold spores). There is an LED indicator light for each of these pollutant types. If odors are detected, the "Odor" indicator light on the control panel will become lit. The same for dust and allergens.

Clean Air Monitor -
Know just how clean or polluted the air really is.

The Intelli-Pro senses just how clean or polluted the air really is, and conveys this information through the four LED indicator lights. The dirtier the air, the more indicator lights that are lit. For example, if all four indicator lights are lit, the air is very polluted. If only one is lit, the air is very clean.

Automatic Mode -
Saves you money on your electric bill by automatically adjusting settings.

In this mode, the Intelli-Pro will automatically adjust the settings of the air purifier according to how clean or polluted the air is. For example, if the air is detected to be polluted, it will run the fan on a higher setting. On the other hand, if the air is determined to be sufficiently clean, it will run the fan on the lowest setting ("Quiet") in order to use less electricity, saving you money on your electric bill.

Filter Replace/Maintenance Indicators -
Take the guesswork out of knowing when to replace filters.

The Intelli-Pro takes the guesswork out of trying to determine when to replace filters and when to wipe the metal dust collector plates clean. The filter sensor lets you know when it is time to replace the HEPA/activated carbon filter. This way, you do not replace it too soon (saving you money), and not too late, when it becomes saturated to the point it begins releasing captured contaminates back into the air.

Ion/UV Light Indicator -
Now you can know the ionizer and UV lamp are working properly.

This sensor verifies the ionizer and UV lamp are working properly. Without these sensors, it is very difficult to know if UV lamps and ionizers are fully operational, since there are few visual or audio signs to verify this. When they are both working properly, the blue light under "Ion/UV Indicator" will go back and forth between dim and bright.

 

 

How the Intelli-Pro Purifies the Air:
 

Washable Pre Filter. The air first enters pre filter, capturing the largest particles, which enhances the durability and performance of the other filters.

Washable Dust Collector Plates. The electrostatically-charged dust collector grid traps particles and pollutants like a magnet. This is similar to Friedrich C-90A, which has been Consumer Reports top-rated air purifier. Unlike the C-90A, the Intelli-Pro has multiple other leading technologies. In a study by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, electrostatic precipitation was found to be more effective in purifying the air than any other filter type.

Activated Carbon Filter. The best type of air filter for trapping chemicals, gases, odors and cigarette smoke. According to Penn State Dept. of Aerobiological researchers, carbon filters serve to remove odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and chemicals that other filters cannot. (More Info)

High-Efficiency HEPA Filter. The most effective type of air filter at capturing dust, allergens and other solid particles (including bacteria). HEPA filters are recommended by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. (More Info)

Photocatalytic Oxidation (TiO2) Filter. This filter is coated with titanium dioxide, which produces highly reactive ions and electrons when combined with the UV light from the Intelli-Pro's UV lamp. These highly reactive ions attach to chemical molecules, bacteria and odor-causing compounds, destroying them through oxidation. Independent tests by research scientists have proven photocatalytic oxidation to be highly effective. (More Info)

Germicidal UV Lamp. The most effective way to destroy micro-organisms, such as germs, viruses, fungi (such as mold) and bacteria. Also destroys micro-organisms including those that are trapped by the HEPA air filter, preventing them from reproducing and recirculating through the room. UV lamps are recommended by the U.S. Centers of Disease Control. Also disinfects the micro-organisms that are trapped in the HEPA filter, which is why the CDC recommends using a germicidal UV lamp and HEPA air filter together. (More Info)

Safe and Effective Ionizer. Circulates trillions of negative ions to neutralize floating pollutants throughout the room. A Journal of Hygiene study found negative ions to improve efficiency of filter units, and multiple studies (including those by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture) have found ionizers to be highly effective against dust, bacteria, etc. Finally, the Intelli-Pro ionizer is proven to be safe, producing virtually no ozone whatsoever.

Intelli-Pro Control Panel:

 


 

 

Clinical Test Results:
 

Intelli-Pro outperformed the Consumer Reports top-rated air purifier along with other popular air purifiers.

 

 

Removal Rates During Clinical Testing:

Air Purifier Model Hydrogen Sulfide Test Particle Removal Test
(15 min)
15 min 30 min
Surround Air Intelli-Pro ($229) 96% 98% > 99.9%
Friedrich C-90A ($499)
Consumer Reports Top-Rated Air Purifier
13% 26% > 99.9%
Oreck XL Professional ($370) 8% 17% 82%
Ionic Breeze ($349) 12% 14% 43% (27 min)

 

Note 1: All air purifier models were tested on "high" setting for the hydrogen sulfide test.
Note 2: All air purifier models were tested on "high" setting for the particle removal test, except the Friedrich C-90A. This model was tested on the "low" setting, since its low setting was more comparable to the other models on "high" in terms of noise and fan speed. Due to the noise of the C-90A on "high", users would likely operate it on "low" most of the time.

About Hydrogen Sulfide. H2S is a strong gas created by stagnant sewage, and is one of the very worst, and most difficult-to-remove pollutants known to man. An air purifiers ability to remove H2S is a good indication of its ability to remove strong odors, odor-causing toxins and volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).

Aspergillus Mold Test.
The ability of the Intelli-Pro to kill aspergillus mold was also tested. In one hour of time, the Intelli-Pro successfully destroyed 100% of the aspergillus mold cultures. Aspergillus is one of the most toxic and allergenic types of indoor mold.

Best Air Cleaner That I Have Ever Bought!
 5/5 Stars
By: Vicki G

I have purchased 5 different brands of air purifiers during the last 25+ years. The Intelli-Pro Air Purifier has given me the "cleanest" air that I have ever had from any air purifier! I am ordering more Intelli-Pro's for the rest of our house!


Great Machine!
 5/5 Stars
By: Russell Jacobs

This is the second Intelli-pro I've had and I love it! It does everything it should (as advertised). The sensor is particularity great. I would recommend it to anyone that is serious about clean air. Easy to use and easy to maintain.


Wouldn't Live Without this Product!
 5/5 Stars
By: Jeffrey A. Palmer

We have used this product for several years. We have 2 of the Intellipro 3800s in my home. We are consistently amazed at the amount of dust and airborne particles this machine filters from our air. We own one of the best vacuum cleaners and we have a fine filter on our heating and air conditioning systems. Yet this machine is still filled with dust each time it signals me to clean it; and cleaning is very easy. Removing dust and dander from our home is important due to dust, mold and pet allergies. I will be purchasing another for work. Trust this product.


Easy to Use
 5/5 Stars
By: Jennifer

I love my new air purifier. It is easy to use- just plug in!! The purifier is attractive and is not an eye sore like other units. I love the quiet white noise sound. I no longer use my sound machine at night. Since using the purifier my allergies have improved and I feel better knowing that the awfulVOCs from the new carpet are being eradicated.


Ordering this purifier for the 4th time
 5/5 Stars
By: Colleen

Love this purifier. I have purchased one for my house and loved it so much I purchased one for my brother's house, my daughter's apartment and now ordering one for my son's place. The air smells fresher. Everyone takes less allergy medicine due to this purifier. I leave it on all the time. I like the fact that it eliminates odors, has ahepa filter, a uv lamp and it lets me know when it needs to be cleaned.


Surround Air Intelli-Pro
 5/5 Stars
By: Carl Geilow

We use two Surround Air Intelli-Pro Air Purifiers as we have a large living area. I am consistently amazed when I perform maintenance on these units at the build-up of dust and particulate that they remove from the air our family is breathing. There is a very noticeable increase in the air quality when the air purifiers are operating. They are especially helpful with allergens as they remove those that effect how you are feeling. These units are extremely easy to service and the maintenance parts are reasonably priced. The time period between maintenance is dependent on the amount of particulate in the air however we are very happy with the service life of the filters. We highly recommend the Surround Air Intelli-Pro Air Purifier for anyone concerned with the air quality they are breathing.


Excellent!
 5/5 Stars
By: Ann T

Runs super quiet on the quiet mode. Also, the auto mode works great. We mop at the shop and it detects the odor of the cleaner and turns itself on higher. Even the high fan isn't extremely loud! Overall filters great and was a great purchase.


 5/5 Stars
By: Lani D.

For the price you CANNOT beat this machine. All the way it filters the air is terrific. Removes smells in the room like magic. I'm going to be getting a second one for another room in my house!


This machine is amazing ....

 5/5 Stars
By: Lorraine Weise

We have 2 dogs, 6 cats, a small house, and a seriously allergic husband. This air purifier cleans the air so well, there is no more sneezing or stuffy noses, and you can actually smell the difference in the air quality. Once a week, I remove the outside cover and vacuum the pre-filter. (2 minutes). Once every few weeks, I vacuum the carbon filter -another 2 minutes. I have had this unit for a year, and even with all of us in the bedroom, I have not had to replace any parts yet. And this may be funny, but true....any odors that my dogs "emit" during the night are amazingly neutralized by this machine.....it senses odors, turns itself to a higher level for a minute, and then returns to a lower speed automatically! And the smell is gone! TheSurroundAir XJ-3800-2 improves the quality of our lives.


Great Investment

By: Martin Weinbaum

I recently purchased my 2nd Intelli-Pro air purifier due to its superior performance. With minimal maintenance I have received more than a year of excellent performance and just purchased my firstreplacementHEPA filter. I have used other air purifiers in the past but this is the best so far and it's a great value. I highly recommend it.


Cleaner Air and Good Night's Sleep

 5/5 Stars
By: Gerald Mattos

Since I cannot perform a blind test I can only give 3 examples of where and how I have used this machine; 1. Frying Fish and Cooking Cabbage: Helps to Remove the Odors in half the time by having it near or in the kitchen; 2. I left the house one day and left the windows open. I have a parrot. When I got home the house was full of smoke. I turned the Intelli-Pro on HIGH and saved the day for me and for the bird; 3. Lastly, last week I had my gas range worked on and the repairman did not turn off the gas. He accidentally disconnected a very small line to one of the burners. We opened all of the windows and doors and put the Intelli-Pro on High . . . we believe the gas odor was gone in minutes and we did not have to evacuate the house. Yes, we turned off the main valve 1st and the Purifier 2nd. We were pleased. I have referred this machine to others and they have reported better sleep due to their allergies.

By: Lida Sportel

I recently bought this air purifier and I am so impressed with it! First of all I like its design. Secondly, it has 7 levels of filtration, which I find pretty impressive and reassures me that all the particles, odors, allergens, VOCs, and other chemicals are being effectively removed. Thirdly, I really like the fact that there are thee indicator lights on the front panel of the purifier that let you know if allergens or odors are detected in your air. Fourthly, when you set the flow on auto mode you conserve energy and the purifier will increase flow from quiet to low or high mode depending on what it is detecting in the air at every moment. So I don't have to worry about when I should set the flow on a higher setting. Lastly, I really like that there are multiple indicator lights to inform you about when you need to replace filters or clean the unit. Again, it takes out the guess work and you just rely on your purifier to let you know when and what you need to do! Love this air purifier so much, I am in fact going to order 2 more for my office :)

This thing works WONDERFUL, it is quiet and fully automatic. Basically open box and plug it in. It is so quiet I sometimes forget it is on.


By: D. Korsmo, Wisconsin

"I had the good sense to buy one of your Intelli-pro filter systems in November of 2011. I see no place on your website where I could leave some feedback on your product. I have to seriously tell you that this was dollar for dollar one of the top 5 purchases I have made in my life. NO JOKE!! I have a small one bedroom apt and am a heavy smoker as are most of my friends. I also had 2 cats and a large dog. My friends who did not smoke, and (even we who did) could smell the smoke and pet odors. I got this air filter system and after about 5 to 7 days people would stop over and within minutes would comment on the NO SMOKE OR PET ODORS! This is NO joke. It was and still is a dramatic difference. Even now, people still comment on it. I expect a number of them will be ordering from you when they start closing up their homes in the fall. I had done a lot of research on many filters, up to and including systems for up to $850.00. After seeing all of the prices and what they offered, I was going to go with one of the models around $450.00. THEN, thank God I ran across your website. I checked out your products and the prices. I was hard pressed to believe that the Intelli-pro filter could do better than the much more expensive models. But, I took a chance. Once I got it, I was still not ready to believe that this small unit could do what you were claiming. I was VERY pleasantly surprised! I cannot describe the difference it has made here for me, the pets and my friends. This is an OUTSTANDING value, for an OUTSTANDING product. I have, only needed to take it apart for cleaning twice even with the heavy use. Feel free to use this as a comment from happy customers. A GREAT PRODUCT!!"


Excerpts of Customer Reviews from Amazon:


"BOTTOM LINE: I chose this one based on research, but I highly recommend it for quality and value! If you want to cleaner, fresher air and reduced home allergies without intrusive noise - at the price, I'm not sure you can do better." - J. Lee


"First impression: It's not doing anything. I have allergies...miserable miserable allergies, and I just moved back to maryland during the worst allergy season I've seen in years. This house is allergy hell. and this purifier?...Ah...I swear I can breathe again ..." - Ammee


"In my opinion this product is the best filter in the 'affordable' price range." - abc123


"When a pair of chain-smokers moved into the condo below her a few months ago, it turned her life upside-down ... within a few hours her air was clear. It works like a charm, kicking on immediately when a whiff is smoke is detected, making the air sparkling clean in less than a half an hour. She is entirely unable to detect any smoke in her apartment now." - Stacy Lee


"In the past I've used just about every kind of air purifier that exists, and with varying costs and effectiveness, but this one just rocks my socks! It cleans everything, and I mean E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!" - ShoopDeDoop "Moi"


"I've had MANY different air purifiers in the last 25 years and this, by far is the best on the market." - dnt43


"It has taken the dust out of the air and seems to do what it is supposed to do at a reasonable price." - Car Guy


"I always keep it on (Auto setting) and it gives me comfort to know and 'see' (the indicator) that my air is clean. Interestingly, the sensor in this purifier that determines the air quality and revs up its engines as soon as the air quality becomes worse is quite sensitive. It even knows that the air quality has changed/worsened (ever so slightly) whenever I peel an orange!" - Teluguman


"The auto mode function is nice, just set it and forget it ... When I come home from a long day in the restaurant reeking like garlic this unit smells me the minute I walk in the door and fires up!" - Chef Sean


"I usually keep it on AUTO mode (it goes AUTO, QUIET, LOW, MED, HIGH), which it mainly stays on QUIET. Auto is a neat mode that senses smells and particles and will adjust the air flow rate based on it. For example if I'm 15ft away, and I use hand sanitizer, this thing picks it up about 30 seconds later and kicks into high mode (as a detected smell) - it always makes me chuckle." - Chris F "root"


"I've owned an XJ-3800 now for over 2 years ... Best air purifier I've owned ..." - Frek


"Highly recommend this product. Air in our house is noticeably cleaner. The auto sensor is truly amazing ... The range is very good, too." - EMMNJ


"Goodbye sinus allergies!!!" - Wyndell Ferrell


"Completely took away my allergies, whereas before I would cough and wheeze constantly in our apt." - Levis315


"16 Month Status Update ... Having been servicing these roughly on the mark each time you would be amazed as to how well they work." - Brandon Bianchi


"Update after almost a year: This is really THE BEST air purifier I have ever owned. It continues to work flawless!" - G. Jackson


"This is by far the best bang for the buck air purifier I researched and then purchased." - mattcero

"My wife sleeps again!" - cyclesport45


"We sleep better as we experience less nasal congestion ..." - Maggie


"This is a great air purifier, I have owned this for several months It cleans the air very well." - Pamela Bryant


"After putting this in her classroom, my wife's respiratory problems are all cleared up. Her students and peers have also commented on how much better the air in her classroom is compared to the rest of the building." - Sans


"Our Intelli-Pro does what it claims...cleans the air, senses and removes irritants and odors...and, when running on "auto mode", it ramps up quickly to take care of whatever it senses." - L. ODonnell


"Got this and it works great. I have asthma and this collects tons of dust and pollen." - Valerie Trahanovsky


"I got this air purifier in, and set it up right next to the litter box. Now, I don't have dust problems, cooking-smell-problems and I can't smell the litter box. Not even a little!" -


"... my son has struggled with acute cases of bronchial asthma ... His chronic cough is drastically better and his daily quality of life has notably improved." - T. Hepler


 

U.S. Government Recommendations

U.S. Government studies and recommendations that validate technologies used in the Intelli-Pro air purifier.


Recommendation for Using HEPA Air Filter and UV Light Together

U.S. Centers of Disease Control Recommends Air Purifier with both HEPA Filter and UV Light.The CDC recommends the use of germicidal ultraviolet (UV) light and HEPA air filters together for the optimal combination of both capturing and destroying microbes. The Intelli-Pro includes both a True HEPA filter and a germicidal UV lamp.


Recommendations for HEPA Air Filter

Recommended by Dept. of Homeland Security.

HEPA air filters were developed by the Atomic Energy Commission during the second World War. They were originally designed to remove radio active dust from their plants. (HEPA Air Filter Research)


Recommendations for Germicidal UV Light (Ultraviolet)

Specified by U.S. Gov't to be used in government buildings to control micro-organisms.

The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommends UV lights in homeless shelters to prevent the spread of disease, particularly TB (tuberculosis).

(UV Light Research)


Recommendations for Ionizer/Negative Ion Air Purification

Found by U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) to be highly effective against dust and bacteria. The U.S.D.A. discovered the following in recent studies conducted in a poultry house, which are notoriously polluted:

  • Reduced salmonella (bacteria) transmission between chicks by 98%.
  • Reduced airborne salmonella (bacteria) by 95%.
  • Reduced airborne dust & particles by 99% in just 60 seconds.

 (Air Ionizer/Negative Ion Research)


Recommendation for TiO2/Photocatalytic Oxidation

U.S. Department of Energy found that photocatalytic oxidation air purification destroyed VOC chemicals with impressive effectiveness, even at high air flow rates.

(TiO2 / Photocatalytic Studies)


Recommendation for Activated Carbon Filters

In multiple studies commissioned by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, found to be very effective at removing organic chemicals. Recommended by the Centers of Disease Control, Dept. of Health and Human Services, and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

Originally used in World War II to protect U.S. soldiers from chemical warfare agents.

Just some of the many types of pollutants removed by the Intelli-Pro:


Dust/Dust Mites. The Hepa air filter in the Intelli-Pro is highly effective at capturing solid particles such as dust and dust mites. According to the Journal of Hygiene, ionizers help to increase the efficiency of filters by causing airborne particles to conglomerate, making them easier to capture in the filtration material. The dust collector grid also helps with dust and mites, which are magnetically bonded to the electrostatically-charged metal plates. The plates are periodically wiped clean, and do not require replacement. Plus, negative ions also cause airborne particles to precipitate out of the air you breathe, and have been found to be extremely effective at controlling dust without the presence of a filter, through studies conducted by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. UV light can be deadly for dust mites.


Bacteria. Much of the bacteria floating around in the air can be effectively captured by the Hepa air filter, while the germicidal UV lamp serves to disinfect the bacteria trapped by the Hepa filter. Plus, according to studies by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, negative ion-producing ionizers are extremely effective at reducing airborne bacteria. The Intelli-Pro also includes a photocatalytic oxidation filter, which have been proven effective at destroying bacteria. The dust collector grid also helps to remove bacteria from the air.


Pollen and Other Allergens. Hepa air filters are the most commonly recommended filter for allergens, and are generally considered the most effective type against them. Negative ion-producing ionizers increase the efficiency of filters by causing airborne particles to conglomerate, making them easier to capture. Plus, negative ions also cause airborne particles to precipitate out of the air you breathe. The dust collector grid will also help to remove allergens from the air, which are magnetically bonded to the electrostatically-charged metal plates. Simply wipe them clean periodically and they will never require replacement.


Mold/Fungi. Mold spores are effectively captured by Hepa air filters, especially with the help of negative ion-producing ionizers. UV light is deadly against the microbiological toxins associated with mold. The activated carbon filtration and photocatalytic oxidation technologies used by the Intelli-Pro are effective against mildew smells often emitted by household molds.


Cigarette Smoke. The carbon air filter in the Intelli-Pro absorbs smoke particles and the toxic chemicals associated with cigarette smoke. With the help of the photocatalytic oxidation filter, it also helps to reduce or eliminate odors from cigarette smoke. The negative ions also remove smoke particles from air.


Chemicals and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). The carbon air filter is very effective at absorbing chemicals and gases. Also, photocatalytic oxidation has been proven effective at breaking up chemical compounds. Furthermore, the ionizer also helps to neutralize chemical fumes.


Germs/Viruses. The UV light is deadly against micro-organisms such as germs and viruses, and highly effective at destroying them as they pass by the UV lamp. Negative ions have also been known to help to neutralize viruses.


Odors. Both the photocatalytic oxidation filter and activated carbon air filter are effective at eliminating or reducing strong odors.


Carbon Monoxide. A statistically significant decrease of CO values was found with an ionizer activated. This was discovered by researchers at Brompton Hospital in London, and published in European Respiratory Journal.
