Austin Healthmate's True HEPA Filter Removes Nearly All Particles From the Air You Breathe.
If you are researching air filters because you want to improve your indoor air quality, then the first thing you should know is that the Austin HealthMate air filters will remove 99.97% of particles greater than .3 microns from the air -- keeping these pollutants out of your lungs. (For comparison, the diameter of a human hair is about 300 times too large to penetrate a HEPA filter.)
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 nearly all of the offending particles. The HealthMates will remove nearly all of the indoor pollutants that provoke allergic reactions in many people.
The HealthMates' Carbon and Zeolite Filters Remove Odors, Vapors, Gases and Fumes.
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. The combination of activated charcoal, from coconut - the best source known to science - and organic zeolite will eliminate not only such annoying odors as tobacco smoke from your home, but also dangerous gases like formaldehyde.
The Austin Healthmates are excellent for people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, especially the HealthMate Plus.
You Will Not 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.
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.
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.
Available in Eight Models - Five Filter Types and Two Sizes
The Austin Healthmate Air Purifiers come in two sizes, Standard and Junior. All models contain True HEPA filters for the removal of particles down to .3 microns in size and a generous amount of carbon for the removal of odors and chemicals. The difference between models is size (Standard or Junior) and the particular blend of carbon. These models are designed for safe, quiet operation.
