Below are some comparisons between units that are similar but have different features that could help you decide which Austin Air Purifier is perfect for you.


HealthMate vs. HealthMate Plus

The price is the first difference. The HealthMate is $714.99 while the HealthMate Plus is $854.99. But both have a filtration system that will last five years until a replacement is needed. 

So what makes the "Plus" cost more? Potassium Iodide Impregnated Carbon is where the HealthMate Plus gets added filtration and is a step up from the HealthMate. It adds an extra layer that no other unit does from Austin Air. Carbon monoxide, arsenic, carbon dioxide, and cyanide are some cigarette and wildfire toxins that are harmful to you that will be eliminated. 

If you have concerns over the amount of VOCs, gases, chemicals, or smoke in your home, the HealthMate Plus is the right choice for you.

The Austin Air HealthMate has the True HEPA filter and Activated Carbon / Zeolite for great protection too. It can take care of your everyday needs for purifying your air and it’s the most popular unit. 


HealthMate Plus vs. Bedroom Machine

Both of these will be the most expensive of all units with the HealthMate Plus at $854.99 and the Bedroom Machine at $994.99 but will give you the most comprehensive protection. 

The Bedroom Machine was made to give you a better night's sleep and has one more level of filtration with the HEGA Carbon Cloth that gives you more adsorption of chemicals, gases, viruses, and bacteria. If you suffer from COPD or have difficulty sleeping, the Bedroom Machine will be perfect for you. 

The HealthMate Plus will be the right fit if you need relief from smoke (wildfires and tobacco) and also VOCs such as formaldehyde. This unit will remove the widest range of pollutants. 


Allergy Machine vs. HealthMate

The main difference between these two is there is no carbon filtration in the Allergy Machine. It instead has a HEGA Carbon Cloth for adsorption of chemicals and gases. It provides maximum protection against allergens in the air and gives you relief from asthma and allergy attacks.

If your main concern is protecting yourself against those, the Allergy Machine is the best for you.

The HealthMate has the Activated Carbon that will still give you relief but provides a more all-around purification of your air. The prices for these are $714.99 for the Austin Air HealthMate and $764.99 for the Austin Air Allergy Machine. 

When it comes to purifying your air, you can’t go wrong with any Austin Air Systems air purifier. They have been making air purifiers for over 30 years and are industry leaders in providing:

  • over 780 cubic in. of Activated Carbon and Zeolite (HealthMatePlus also includes potassium iodide) 
  • 60 sq. ft. of Medical-Grade True HEPA in all units
  • 5-Year Mechanical and Filter Warranties
  • No Austin Air replacement filters are needed for 5 years (depending on usage)!!

The main difference in deciding which one is the best fit for you will be the filtration system and what each one can specifically do to help your concerns and give you the best, clean air to breathe each day!
