Austin Air designs air purifiers that are simple in design but very efficient. Their air cleaners are straight forward with a focus on filtration not frills. The Healthmate Plus series are designed for the chemically sensitive who require the most comprehensive air cleaning solution available. The HealthMate Plus units combine superior particulate filtration with advanced gas filtering capabilities to remove more household chemicals, gases and odors. These units feature a special Superblend of activated Anthracite carbon and zeolite mixed with a blend of coconut shell carbon impregnated with Potassium Iodide for more effective removal of chemically reactive gases and dangerous vapors such as those found in common household cleaning products, detergents and materials like new carpets or flooring. If you are extreme sensitive to chemicals or just want the most comprehensive air purification without fancy extras, then the Austin Healthmate Plus Air purifier is your answer.

The Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifiers represent a good value for the investment with high quality filtration that lasts for up to 5 years. Pluses: True HEPA filter provides very good filtration of particulates including bacteria, mold, germs, pet dander, and dust mites and their allergens. Since Austin Air uses true medical-grade HEPA filters the filter does not lose efficiency as time goes one and it starts to get dirty. Special Superblend carbon for superior chemical & gas absorption. Austin developed a combination of proprietary impregnated carbons for the Healthmate Plus air purifiers. These impregnated carbons remove a variety of chemicals that regular activated carbon can not. The Superblend of carbon was specifically designed for people with chemical sensitivities. As exposure to chemicals in our daily environment is increasing, it becomes more important to have an air purifier that can address chemicals as well as airborne particulates to keep your indoor air clean and safe. Long lasting filters. The filter used by the Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifiers can lasts up to 5 years before it needs replacement. The only maintenance required was to replacing the filter every 5 years and periodically vacuum the large pre-filter from outside the unit. However, after quite a few years of personal experience with the Austin Air units, we can report that when running them constantly 24/7, a more realistic life expectancy for the filters is 2 to 4 years, with the carbon becoming saturated before the HEPA filter. None the less, the filters are protected by a 5 year pro-rated guarantee. The Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifiers have a superior steel construction with a baked-on powder coat finish. They are a good, safe choice for those irritated by plastic off-gassing. Both the Austin Air Healthmate Plus and Healthmate Plus Junior air purifiers are a great economy buy offering high efficiency air filtration with low maintenance and costs. Austin Airs reputation is excellent and they have been in business for many years and stand behind their product with a 5 year warranty on parts and labor. They are also one of the only manufacturers to offer a 5 year pro-rated guarantee on their filters! Minuses: It would be nice if these had a filter life monitoring device to tell you when the filters need to be replaced. It is all too easy to forget or lose track of the filter's life over a period of 2-5 year. Not to mention there is no concrete way to tell when the filters are actually saturated and should be changed. Currently, the only way to tell when the filter needs to be replaced is when one can start to smell the carbon off gassing (once it is saturated it will start to off-gas odors). Separate carbon and HEPA filter would have been a smarter filter design, since both filters will seldom need replacing at the same time. Replacing the filters is not a 60 second job.In order to really clean the pre-filter it is necessary to remove the bottom plate by removing 4 screws and take it out from the air purifier to give it a thorough cleaning. This is a bit time consuming, so we would recommend replacing the pre-filter once a year. Replacing the filters is a bit tricky as the cylindrical filter is heavy and the bottom plate must be perfectly in line with the holes in order to tightly screw it back together. Austin Air overstates the room coverage of the Healthmate Plus air purifier at up to 1500 sq. ft. Actual maximum room coverage for the Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifier is more like 313 sq. ft. while running on high fan speed in order to achieve 6 air changes per hour. Room coverage is half as much when running on medium speed. The Healthmate Plus Junior air purifiers actual room coverage is about 156 sq. ft. while on high speed to achieve 6 air changes per hour. These are still very decent room coverages for the size of the air purifiers. Summary: The special feature of the Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifiers is the carbon Superblend they use. The Healthmate Plus and Healthmate Plus Junior offer superior absorption of multiple chemicals, gases and VOCs that are present in our indoor environments.
