The Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifiers features a special superblend carbon to address lower weight molecular gases, as well as use a true HEPA filter for capturing particulates. 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. We were initially impressed that 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 Air’s 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 manufacturer’s to offer a 5 year pro-rated guarantee on their filters!

Minuses:

  • Not our quietest air purifier. Our testing team found the Austin Air Healthmate Plus air purifiers to be noisy on the high and medium speed, but agreed the low speed is quiet enough for sleeping depending on your noise sensitivity. High speed is best suited for quick cleaning or for use when you are not in the room. The medium speed is okay if there is already some background noise.
  • 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). We also feel separate carbon and HEPA filter would have been a smarter filter design, since both filters will seldom need replacing at the same time.
  • 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 purifier’s 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 coverage’s 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 efficient absorption of multiple chemicals and VOCs that are present in our indoor environments. We highly recommended the Healthmate Plus air purifiers for who want to reduce their exposure to environmental chemicals or for those who have MCS.
