Which Austin Air Cleaner is best for me?
AustinWith so many different models to choose from, selecting the best Austin Air purifier for your needs may seem challenging, so we've built the following chart to help. Please note that the HealthMate, HealthMate Plus, Allergy Machine, Pet Machine and Bedroom Machine all feature the same housing, motor, and fan; the only differences are in the filters inside.

In addition, all of the filters include the same Prefilters and Medical Grade True HEPA Filter; the difference is only in the carbon configuration, which determines how the filter handles chemicals, gases, and odors.

History: First introduced in 1991, the HealthMate is Austin Air's flagship air cleaner. The HealthMate revolutionized the portable air cleaner market by focusing on all aspects of air quality by combining medical grade True HEPA filtration with granular carbon to eliminate particles, chemicals and odors. The HealthMate Plus was added soon after the HealthMate, to address the unique air quality needs of those suffering from severe or multiple chemical sensitivities. By adding potassium iodide to the carbon blend already used in the HealthMate, the HealthMate Plus captures even more chemicals and odors. In the aftermath of the Sept 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks, FEMA and the US Dept of Homeland Security needed a specialized air cleaner to address concerns of airborne contaminants in the event of a future chemical or biological attack. In 2003, Austin Air was chosen to design and supply 20,000 air cleaners for this specific purpose. Each unit used a carbon cloth which, when placed as the final filtration stage (after the HEPA filter), was dedicated solely to gas adsorption, enabling the carbon to be more efficient. The Allergy Machine features the same military-grade carbon cloth which was originally used in these specialized air cleaners. The Pet Machine was introduced in 2007 to address specific air quality concerns of pet owners. It features the same 60 sq ft of medical grade True HEPA filter as in the original HealthMate to filter out airborne pet allergens such as dust and dander. It also has a special proprietary granular carbon blend which captures odors most commonly caused by pets. In 2010, Austin Air partnered with the National Sleep Foundation to design The Bedroom Machine, the most advanced room air purifier Austin Air has ever made. The Bedroom Machine uses a 5 stage filter including 60 sq ft of medical grade True HEPA, 15 lbs of granular carbon, and military-grade carbon cloth for the ultimate in clean air, helping you get a better night's sleep.
