  • Product Overview

    It’s easy to see why the Austin Air HealthMate and HealthMate Jr. Air Purifiers have earned the title of “America’s Favorite Air Cleaner” year after year and are renowned for their reliable protection against everyday air quality problems. Using multi-stage HEPA and carbon filtration, the Austin Air HealthMate Air Purifiers remove symptom-triggering allergens, odors, and chemicals from spaces up to 1,500 square feet.

    Key Features and Benefits

    • Remove dust, pollen, tobacco smoke, chemical vapors, gases, viruses, bacteria, and more
    • Are ideal for allergy- and asthma-sufferers and those who have chemical sensitivities
    • Feature a 360-degree filtering system that draws air in from all sides of the unit and passes it through a 4-stage filter for the most thorough air filtration
    • Trap 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns and 95% of particles that measure 0.1 micron and smaller
    • Need filter replacement only once every 5 years - an economical choice
    • Require minimal maintenance, just periodic vacuuming of the steel outer housing to ensure optimal airflow and a good wipe-down to keep the surface sparkling clean

    Great for Allergy- and Asthma-Sufferers

    The Austin Air HealthMate (HM400) and HealthMate Jr. (HM200) Air Purifiers use Austin Air's signature 360-degree progressive filtering system to remove the most symptom-aggravating allergens, odors, and chemicals from your home. With steady use, you may see a reduction in your allergy, asthma, and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) symptoms or even eliminate them all together.

    Every minute, the system pulls in room air from all sides of the air cleaner. Air passes through a 4-stage HEPA/carbon combination filter and is blown back out into your room using the Clean Air Pocket vent. This extensive filtration system cleans your air faster and more efficiently than conventional air purifiers, which means quicker relief from your symptoms.

    4-Stage Filtration System

    The HealthMate Air Cleaners 4-stage combination filter includes:

    • PERMAFILT Pre-Filter - During stage 1, air passes through a cotton PERMAFILT pre-filter, which captures particles easily seen by the naked eye, such as large dust and pet dander particles.
    • Medium Particle Filter - Next, a medium particle filter traps small- to medium-size allergens, such as mold, pollen, and dust mites.
    • Carbon Blend Filter – Next, air moves through a 15-pound carbon and natural zeolite filter where odors, chemicals, gases, fumes, and VOCs are absorbed and locked away.
    • Medical-Grade HEPA Filter - Lastly, air glides through 60 square feet of true medical-grade HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) material where it is scrubbed free of harmful bacteria and viruses as well as smaller pollen, mold, pet dander, dust, and ragweed particles.

    Overall, this long-lasting combination filter eliminates 99.97% of airborne pollutants that are 0.3 microns and larger, 95% of particles that measure 0.1 micron and smaller, and more than 3,000 types of toxic gases and odors. You'll rest easy knowing that you and your family are breathing the cleanest air possible.

    Austin Air HeathMate vs. HealthMate Jr.

    The Austin Air HealthMate comes in two convenient sizes to fit your room size perfectly. The standard-sized HeathMate has a max fan speed of 400 CFM to clean rooms up to 1,500 square feet. The HealthMate Junior uses 200 CFM to clean rooms up to 700 square feet.

    Durable and Efficient Construction

    Made in the USA

    Made in the USA, the Austin Air HealthMate and HealthMate Jr. Air Purifier is constructed with sturdy, long-lasting components that boost efficiency and energy savings. These include an energy-efficient Permanent-Split Capacitor (PSC) motor, a powerful centrifugal fan, and an all-steel outer body. The long-life PSC motor is rated for continuous use at high RPMs and is mounted on shock absorbers to minimize noise. When running, the Healthmate motor draws less current and reduces your operating costs by 50% when compared to other air purifiers.

    Additional Features

    • Easy Controls - Choose from 3 purification speeds using the simple manual knob control.
    • Smooth-Roll Casters - Casters come standard with the HealthMate, and are an optional accessory for the HealthMate Jr.
    • Independently Tested - Like all Austin Air Purifiers, the HealthMate has been independently tested for filtration effectiveness by third-party and U.S. government labs.
    • Easy Filter Changes - Just remove the bottom cover of the air purifier to access the old filter and drop a new one in.

    Summary

    The Austin Air Healthmate helps reduce your chronic allergy, asthma, and MCS symptoms, creating a healthier environment for you and your family.

    What Customers Love

    • Easy to Use - No complicated control panels, the HealthMate and HealthMate Jr. includes 1 manual knob control to control your fan speed and turn the unit on and off.
    • Long-Life Filter - The combination HEPA/carbon filter needs to be replaced only once every 5 years under typical use to help save you money on costly filter replacements.

    Things to Consider

    • Chemical Removal - Consider whether you need a higher level of chemical filtration. The upgraded Austin Air Healthmate Plus blends potassium iodide into the carbon filter to remove heavier chemicals such as formaldehyde.

    I wish I had discovered your product five years ago. I love the fact it covers 1500 square feet. I presently have 11 air cleaners at home and at the office, often in open areas. One Healthmate will replace several of my present air cleaners. The unit is quiet and attractive. My wife let me put it in the living room, and that's no small task. She is picky, picky, picky.
    I bought a second unit for my daughter so my grandsons aren't contaminated by her dogs. The fact the filter lasts 5 years is the only way to go with her. She's not into routine maintenance. The rollers are neat and allow you to cover the whole house, even a large house like ours. The rollers were even attached upon arrival. Just take the unit out of the box, turn it on and your up an running. The 360 degree air intake is a neat feature that my other air cleaners do not have. The air return is powerful, yet easily positioned so as not to cause problems. I also like the fact the unit is quiet and does not use excessive amounts of electricity. This is important since most my air purifiers are left running for twenty-four hours per day. In reading the filter specs, I was amazed at the length Austin went to in order to provide pure air. I don't remember seeing such extensive filtration, especially at such a reasonable price. Both units I ordered arrived within a day or two. That was important and unusual. I had a question on registration and called the company. A person answered immediately, was very easy to understand, and answered my question in a polite and knowledgeable fashon. My current thinking is that I need a third unit for the office.

    This purifier generates three different levels of white noise, depending on which of three settings you use. It's quiet on the first setting but the 2nd and 3rd highest are nice for masking background and outside noise when you need to sleep without interruption.

    Unfortunately, my HM 400 developed a minor rattle after about three years of moderate use. I didn't use it every day, nor did I run it at top speed very often. I was going to send it back for warranty repair, but the noise was only intermittent and ultimately went away after a short while. Meanwhile, the power cord frayed because there was no rubber shield around where the cord came out of the cabinet. Very poor design!

    Anyway, after 7 years of light use, the motor is now not working properly at all - it starts out normally but after a minute or so, it begins to vary speed until it slows down and stops working. I am very disappointed in the poor quality of this machine. I took very good care of it, keeping it clean and replacing the expensive ($200) filter when it needed one. This thing should not have failed, considering how expensive it was and all the good press about it.

    Be warned - if you buy one and it breaks, you have to ship it back to Buffalo, NY. Austin is not clear about whether you have to pay the shipping and insurance even when you are within the warranty period, so get something in writing before you ship it back. In any case, you are risking your money if you buy one - you cannot assume you will get a quality product.

      Open concept, small house, the Health Mate located downstairs because much too loud [even on LOW] for upstairs where bedroom is. We almost never run unit higher than LOW setting due to the noise level. Unit seems to do a good job but it's just TOO LOUD!

          Comments about Austin Air Healthmate Air Purifier:

          I have several cats and have a few friends who are very allergic, and I purchased an Austin Air in hopes of reducing the amount of allergens in the air in my apartment (in addition to providing generalized reduction of germs and pollutants). A friend came by last night and had a significantly reduced reaction, so I think it's safe to say it works as advertised.

          My only real complaint is that on medium or high, it is quite loud, to the point that you won't want it running that high if you're, say, watching television in the same room.

          It's also worth noting the unit is potentially much heavier than you expect, but it includes wheels for easy movement around.

              Comments about Austin Air Healthmate Air Purifier:

              After doing a good amount of research I settled on the Austin Air. It seems to be doing the job I bought it for to reduce odors and pollen in our lower level. Happy with purchase. I only wish it wasn't so gigantic. It is VERY loud on high so we only run it at that speed overnight when necessary.

              Comments about Austin Air Healthmate Air Purifier:

              Upon receiving the product, I unpacked it from the box and was able to get it up and running in less than 1 minute. In addition, it purifies the air really well, removing dust from my cramped studio apartment. This makes a great purifier, especially if you do not have any windows in your apartment. It works well, and on the lowest settings, is very quite. It definitely is well worth the purchase. In addition, Sylvane hooked me up with a 10% discount, which helped my student budget. Thanks Sylvane and Austin Air!
