Austin Healthmate Air Purifier - A Closer Look

Austin Air has manufactured the Healthmate for over 15 years. The simple, economical design of the unit makes it an attractive, long term value. Air is drawn through the unit with a powerful 1.5 h.p. PSC motor through 15 lbs. of activated carbon and zeolite and 60 sq. ft. of HEPA cloth. The unit only uses 100 watts of power on its highest setting, not much more than a light bulb.

Austin Air cleaners are not made of any plastic parts. Plastics off gas and cause problems for the chemically sensitive. That's why Austin Air cleaners have all steel construction. The sturdy steel construction of every Austin Air product guarantees that your air cleaner will last for years.

Austin Air's high efficiency PSC motor draws minimal current. Even on the highest setting, it will cost only a penny an hour.

The pre-filter will capture visible dust and hair, and the exterior should be vacuumed monthly (no disassembly required).

The built-in Permafilt pre-filter then traps medium sized particles such as pollen and mold spores. The carbon / zeolite mixture and a medical grade HEPA cloth combine to create a filter that is almost 4 inches thick. This greatly extends the filter life. Austin guarantees this filter on a pro-rated basis for 5 years. We recommend leaving the unit on all the time, even turning it on its highest setting when you are not in the room. With constant use, we recommend changing the filter after 3 years.

  Good product
Reviewed by: An allergy sufferer from Collegeville, PA

I've had this for a few weeks now, and I've been happy with the performance. My boyfriend is allergic to my cat, but he's had no problems in the room with the purifier so far. My only issue is that we received 2 damaged/broken units. The first unit did not work on the highest setting. The second arrived with a large dent on the side, but was functional. We opted to keep it because we could push out the dent and hold it in place with duct tape and we didn't want to go another few days without it. Nonetheless, the return of the first unit was seamless. The customer service at Achoo Allergy was very responsive and made the replacement very easy.

We always had a dust problem tried several solutions none worked then I found Healthmate. When the instructions said place in bedroom I'm thinking how can this possibly filter the whole house which is 1900 SQ Ft from a upstairs bedroom. So I did a wipe test I wiped a shelf that collects dust every day and is impossible to keep up with well here I am 7 days later and no dust accumulated. The filter is in a upstairs bedroom and the shelf is in the downstairs living room. I used to wake up all stuffed up and now I'm clear as a bell. I cant say enough about this miracle filter. The best investment I have made in a long time.

Customer Q & A

Q1: Will the Austin HealthMate Jr. air purifier remove chemicals smells like perfumes and cleaning supplies.

A: Yes. For nuisance odors, chemicals and cleaning fumes, the standard HealthMate Jr. should work fine. I might opt for the Plus model though, if you are more sensitive or the pollutants are stronger than what you'd find in a typical household. The carbon blend in the Plus is more robust than the standard blend in the HealthMate. So with the Plus you can trap and capture a wider variety of chemical pollutants. Other than that, just match the right air purifier with the room size, and you should be set!

Q2: I have the Austin Air Healthmate Jr. Does the outside pre filter ever need to be cleaned?

A: Yes, but this will vary depending conditions in your home. Generally, we recommend taking a vacuum and cleaning the outside of the machine once every six months. On a lower suction section, you could vacuum off the prefilter itself after you remove it from the machine. You can also use an air compressor to blow the filter out. The prefilter is mainly there to trap big particles, dust bunnies, hair, visible debris and dirt. So cleaning it would done with the vacuum without removing the filter, with air or even just rinsing it, allowing it to completely air dry then putting it back in the machine.

Q3: Thank you for answering our questions. Before I buy I need to be assured that there are NO ionizers in this purifier, optional or not. They are killers for us with asthma and am having a hard time finding a purifier without one. Thanks so much from Hawaii.

A: There are none. Amaircare, Austin Air, AllerAir, and IQAir are all brands that do not use any type of ionization technology. Truthfully, you tend to find that more in cheaper air purifiers simply because it's a cheap, easy way for manufacturers to improve filtration results.

Austin Air HealthMate Reviews

Austin Air Healthmate

As Austin Air's flagship air purifier, the Austin Healthmate 400 offers a balance of performance and affordability. While providing few frills, Austin air purifiers deliver solid results for customers seeking quality filtration coupled with ease of use. As one of the most popular units on the market, there is much to like about the Healthmate and few drawbacks.

NOTE: This review covers the Austin Healthmate, but all points listed about this unit is applicable to the Austin Healthmate Jr. as well. The two primary differences between the units are the size and coverage area. The Jr. is smaller in size and capacity thus suitable for smaller rooms. Due to the smaller, lighter size the Jr. does not come equipped with casters. They are an optional accessory.

What I like about the Austin Healthmate

The HEPA filter in this unit has a 3-5 year lifespan. When comparing this to the cost of the filter, regular maintenance is inexpensive. The Healthmate has two pre-filters around the HEPA/Carbon canister to trap large and medium sized particles such as hair & lint. Periodically vacuuming the large particle pre-filter will extend the overall life of the filter.

Regardless of the setting the Healthmate provides consistent filtration results. Pushing 400 CFM of air at high speed, the Austin could adequately exchange the air in room roughly three times larger than for what it is actually rated.

Austin units are constructed entirely of steel. This makes off-gassing virtually nonexistent. In addition to this, the Healthmate produces no harmful ozone.

Austin's filtration systems are all sealed systems with thick gaskets around each end of the filter. There is no air leakage or unfiltered air mixing with purified air.

All of the Austin units offer 360 degree air intake to maximize air flow. Clean air is discharged through one vent at the top of the unit, which can be very useful for allergy and asthma sufferers who need concentrated, purified air immediately.

The Healthmate is very low maintenance. The carbon pre-filter is changed once a year as opposed to every 3-6 months for other popular brands. The HEPA / Carbon / Zeolite filter change is required only every 3-5 years. Aside from occasionally vacuuming the built-in pre-filter, there is nothing more that needs to be done to an Austin unit aside from plugging it in, turning it on and enjoying fresh, clean air. Changing the filter is simply as well. Remove four screws from the bottom plate, remove plate and simply replace the filter and separate pre-filter.

As with all Austin air purifiers, the Healthmate is available in five colors, Sandstone, Black, Midnight Blue, White and Silver. This gives you some options when it comes to matching an air purifier with the decor of a room. The Healthmate Jr. series additionally offers Pink and Baby Blue which are perfect for any nursery.

Austin Air is a U.S. company. Their air purifiers are not made overseas with cheap labor. Austin Air is based here in the U.S., using an American workforce, proudly creating quality products in a way that helps drive our economy.

Lastly, Austin has been making air purifiers for nearly as long as anyone else in business, with few exceptions. The company has an excellent reputation for providing reliable, quality machines at reasonable prices. Over the years, customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and informed customers who know what to expect before purchasing these units rarely have reason to complain.

What I did not like about the Austin Healthmate

There are a few things to keep in mind when considering the Austin. Though Austin air purifiers can be considered an "economy" air purifier, you can easily pay twice as much for a unit that will give you only marginally better results. The Healthmate offers few gadgets or embellishments. With Austin, it is less gadgetry in exchange for more ease and carefree use.

These units can be heavy. Because of the steel construction and heavy duty filters, the units are not the easiest to move. The 400 series have casters, and while this makes them easier to move they are not really considered "portable". (The 200 series lacks the casters, but is not nearly as heavy.)

When it comes to air purifiers, the Austin Healthmate provides the most bang for your buck. There is nothing on the market that can offer this quality of filtration and durability in this price range. While it lacks many of the additional features of other air purifiers, it makes up for it in a reasonable initial cost, low maintenance costs and top notch performance. There is a reason why Austin has been in business for as long as it has, quality products at an affordable price. So for anyone looking for an easy to use, easy to maintain air purifying workhorse, the Austin Healthmate is the best choice that won't break the bank.
