Austin Healthmate Models
Why to Choose the Austin Healthmate
Whether the problem is dust mites, dog and cat dander, bird powder, pollen, mold spores, or any of the thousands of other irritants in the air, this air filter traps 99.97% of offending particles that are at least .3 microns in size that provoke allergic reactions in many people. For comparison, the diameter of a human hair is about 300 times too large to penetrate a HEPA filter. Gases, particularly the volatile organic compounds, or VOC’s, are as much of a risk to our health as airborne particles. These gases are dispersed from cleaning solutions, carpets, building materials and many chemicals commonly used around the home.Formaldehyde is the chief concern among the VOC’s, as it is so widely used. Its effects show up normally in itching of the eyes, ears and the throat, but it is implicated more seriously as a carcinogen.Austin Air Cleaners have the highest levels of gas and odor filtering materials available, although with different blends of carbon and minerals. The Healthmates are effective in removing dangerous gases like formaldehyde as well as typical household odors associated with tobacco smoke, cooking, pets, and mildew.
Whisper Quiet Operation:
The Austin Air cleaner whispers in operation. The motor is especially designed for quiet operation. With the vibration-free welded steel body, the unit runs with a gentle, background hush. The only sound you will hear is moving air. Even on high setting, some people report that it is an aid to sleep.
There is Virtually NO Maintenance Required!
Because you will not need to change filters for five years, you will not be constantly concerned about the filter-changing schedule. Nor will you be opening and closing the case and handling messy filters all the time.
The only maintenance required is to occasionally vacuum the air filter case from the outside. This will remove the larger particles that are trapped by the pre-filter. When you finally do replace the HEPA and carbon/zeolite drum, you’ll easily remove the bottom plate, let the old filter and prefilter drop out and then slide the new ones in place. That’s all that’s required for five years of clean air.
No Need to Buy and Replace Anything For Five Years!
Unlike other air filters, the Austin HealthMates comes with enough filtration material to last for five years of normal residential usage. This means there will be no costly HEPA filters, carbon filters, or pre-filters to buy. Other brands require filter changes as frequently as every three months. Lesser quality air filters actually end up costing you more.
5-Year Pro-Rated Filter Warranty
Austin Air offers a 5-year pro-rated filter warranty, by far the most comprehensive in the industry. Austin Air filters are designed to last for an amazing 5-years under normal residential use. In the event that you require a filter change within the warranty period, you will receive a prorated discount based on the amount of time left in the warranty.
Available in Eight Models – Five Filter Types and Two Sizes
All of the Austin Healthmate air purifiers contain medical grade True HEPA filters and are excellent choices for people suffering from allergies caused by dog and cat dander, bird powder, mold, dust and dust mites, pollens, and similar irritants. The HealthMates’ true HEPA filter removes 99.97% of all particles greater than .3 microns from the air, so you will experience relief from coughing and stuffed up noses due to allergies.
There are two sizes of the Austin Healthmate line. The standard size units (the Healthmate, Allergy Machine, Pet Machine, the Healthmate Plus, and the Bedroom Machine) will clean an area up to 1,500 square feet, while the smaller units (the HealthMate Junior, Allergy Machine Junior, Healthmate Junior Plus, and Baby’s Breath) will clean up to 700 square feet.
The difference between models is size and the particular blend of carbon it is configured with.
