Austin Air HealthMate Air Purifier Review 

Retail Price: $518/HEPA



OVERVIEW: The Austin Air Healthmate Air Purifier is a solidly made unit, and just about the only air purifier still made in US (I know one other small air purifier company down south). It is solidly made with a steel case and is a 4-stage air purifier. I have known about it for many years and the design hasn't really changed in 25 years, which is both a testament to it's durability but bad because it hasn't integrated some of the more modern technology.

The review of the Austin Air Healthmate continues after the video.

4 Stages of Purification

1 - HEPA - Best for allergies and asthma

2 - Pre-Filter - gathers large particles like dust and hair and makes the HEPA last longer

3 - Carbon (Optional) - you pay more for the version that adds Carbon for absorbing fumes and gases

4 - Zeolite (optional - is mixed in with Carbon) - Similar to carbon in that it absorbs fumes and gases. Zeolite is an abundant mineral that comes from volcanic ash. Often found in cat litter mix because it absorbs odor.

Pros and Cons


1 - Made in the U.S.

2 - Good Service

3 - HEPA for dust and pollen

4 - Good sized Carbon and Zeolite for gas and odors


1 - A little pricey at over $518

2 - Loud on high

3 - Expensive filter replacements

4 - Doesn't do much for viruses, germs or bacteria

I recommend the Austin HealthMate Air Purifier for people with extreme allergies or sensitive immune systems. While it is more expensive than others, and leaves out any germ/bacteria/virus-fighting technology, it has above average HEPA and Carbon/Zeolite filters for those people who are very sensitive. For most households I would go for the air purifiers that include more technologies, and that cost less money (for the purifier itself as well as the replacement filters).
