Austin Air vs the Competition

Providing clean air for over 30 years, Austin Air is one of the top brands on the market. But how do they compare to other top brands out there? 

Nearly all brands help in eliminating viruses, bacteria, chemicals, and other unwanted pollutants but choosing between top-rated air purifiers can be challenging.

In this article we will break down key features so you make the best informed decision on which air purifier will work for your needs!

Let's not wait any longer for you to get clean air inside your home and compare Austin Air Purifiers and the competition.


Austin Air vs Dyson

The first battle we have going is Austin Air going against Dyson. Most people know the big brand Dyson and some already have other products of theirs. Austin Air only makes air purifiers and they are really good at it. For this, we will look at comparable models in the Austin Air HealthMate and the Dyson TP09.

Price

Dyson and Austin Air are on the higher end of the price spectrum but will deliver in eliminating pollutants where it counts most — inside our homes.

The Austin Air HealthMate price tag is $714.99 (we may have a discount for you if interested) while the Dyson TP09 has a price of $669.99-689.99 depending on the color you choose. 

Filtration System

Dyson TP09

The Dyson TP09 has a special formaldehyde filter called the catalytic filter that continuously traps and breaks down formaldehyde molecules into water and CO₂. And the bonus is that it never needs to be replaced.

Along with that comes a HEPA H13 filter that captures 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns in size and a layer of activated carbon to remove odors and gases including VOCs. 

Austin Air HealthMate

The HealthMate has a perfect combination of large HEPA and carbon filters. The HEPA is a medical-grade filter that can remove 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 99% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns. Add in the 15 lbs. of activated Carbon and Zeolite that removes VOCs, odors and formaldehyde and you have a complete filtration system that will eliminate almost any pollutant in your home. It also has two pre-filters that capture medium to large particles. 

With well over 10 more pounds of activated carbon mixture in the filter than the Dyson TP09, the Austin Air HealthMate will do a much better job at eliminating gases, chemicals, and odors from your air.

The Dyson TP09 will do a great job of eliminating formaldehyde if that is a key issue for you. But we worry about other VOCs with not much activated carbon in the filter. Austin Air will focus not only on eliminating the gases and odors but also make sure the particles are being taken care of too with the larger filters. 

Another big question is how often do you have to change the filters. Below you will see how often each has to be replaced. 

Dyson Filter Life Expectancy Austin Air Filter Life Expectancy
HEPA / Carbon Filter — 1 year ($79.99 for replacement)
Catalytic filter — Never needs replacing
Carbon, HEPA, and pre-filters — 5 years
Replacement filter cost $289.99 for the HealthMate
Dyson Air Purifiers
Austin Air vs Dyson - Dyson TP09 Filtration System Austin Air vs Dyson - Austin Air HealthMate Filtration System
Housing Material

Dyson — The housing is made from high-quality abs polycarbonate which is an engineering thermoplastic created from a blend of PC and ABS. So essentially it is made from high-quality plastic. 

Austin Air — The housing is made of solid steel and welded together to prevent any rattling. The powder-coated paint will prevent any off-gassing and odors. The caster wheels and control knobs are the few plastic parts that exist on Austin Air purifiers.

Noise Levels - How loud are they?

Austin Air HealthMate has 3 different fan speeds with noise levels ranging from less than 50 dB to around 65 dB (decibels). On high, it can be pretty loud but you will know that the unit is effectively eliminating pollutants. 

Dyson TP09 has 10 different speeds with a maximum noise level around 60 dB on the highest speed.

*Around 50 db is moderate rainfall or a quiet office setting and 60 dB is considered a normal conversation or background music*

Warranties

Austin Air — The air purifiers are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for five (5) years from the date of purchase and a five (5) year pro-rated filter warranty, by far the most comprehensive in the industry. If the filter lasts less than five years, Austin Air will discount the cost of a new filter based on the number of years the filter has been in use. They also have a 30-day money back guarantee!

Dyson — They have a 2-year parts and labor warranty that your air purifier will be covered by. The warranty is not as good as the Austin Air warranty and doesn't state anything about filters like Austin Air.

Austin Air vs Blueair

In round #2, we have Blueair up against Austin Air. Blueair has over twenty years in the air purification world and has units that range from $100 all the way up near $1,000.

Both Austin Air and Blueair are on numerous 'Best Air Purifiers' lists each year showing how well respected each brand is. Below we will show you the differences between two alike products, the Blueair Protect 7770i and the Austin Air Bedroom Machine.

Price

The Protect 7770i air purifier from Blueair is priced at $979.99

Austin Air's Bedroom Machine has a price of $994.99 (with a discount from Wellness Junction, the price drops a bit). 

Filtration System

Blueair Protect 7770i

Blueair has their most advanced filter technology inside the Protect 7770i called SmartFilters. The technology is designed to deliver superior performance with data-based filter lifetime tracking, a smart RFID chip, and longer filter life (maximum of 1 year).

  • The particle filter layer removes airborne particles like pollen, dust, mold spores, pet dander, viruses and bacteria, and smoke particles.
  • The activated carbon (around 3 lbs.) throughout the filter absorbs gases, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), chemicals, and odors.
  • Pre-filter that will remove larger particles.

Austin Air Bedroom Machine

The Bedroom Machine is the most comprehensive unit in the Austin Air line with 5 levels of protection. It can remove sub-micron particles including allergens and asthma irritants, noxious gases, odors and chemicals.

  • True HEPA is a medical-grade filter that removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 99% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns.
  • Carbon filter has 15 lbs. of activated Carbon and Zeolite that removes VOCs, odors and formaldehyde. 
  • Military Grade HEGA Carbon Cloth that provides an extremely large surface area for adsorption of chemicals, gases, viruses, and bacteria
  • Two pre-filters that removes medium and large particles (dust, hair, spores and pollen)

The whole filtration system is different in both brands. Austin Air has the traditional HEPA and Activated Carbon filters along with pre-filters (the Bedroom Machine also has a carbon cloth) while Blue Air doesn't have a traditional HEPA filter. Instead, Blueair has their own SmartFilters that have a particle filter (like a HEPA) along with Activated Carbon.

The big difference will be the amount of activated carbon is in each filter. Austin Air has 15 lbs. while Blueair has around 3 lbs. 

Blueair Filter Life Expectancy Austin Air Filter Life Expectancy
Protect SmartFilter 7700 (Carbon + Particle filter) — 6-12 months with the unit telling you when to replace. ($99.99 for replacement)
Carbon, HEPA, HEGA and pre-filters — 5 years
Replacement filter cost $569.99 for the Bedroom Machine 
Blueair Air Purifiers

Austin Air — Made of solid steel and welded together to prevent any rattling, Austin Air units are powder-coated paint that will prevent any off-gassing. The only plastic will be the caster wheels and control knobs.

Noise Levels - How loud are they?

Blueair Protect 7770i has maximum noise levels around 53 dB on the highest speed and around 25 dB at the lowest speed.

*Around 50 db is moderate rainfall or a quiet office setting and 60 dB is considered a normal conversation or background music*

Warranties

Austin Air — The air purifiers are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for five (5) years from the date of purchase and a five (5) year pro-rated filter warranty, by far the most comprehensive in the industry. If the filter lasts less than five years, Austin Air will discount the cost of a new filter based on the number of years the filter has been in use. They also have a 30-day money back guarantee!

Blueair— The air purifiers have a one (1) year warranty free from defects in material or workmanship.

Austin Air vs AirDoctor

Ding...Ding...Ding, we are in round 3 with Austin Air going up against AirDoctor. 

You probably have seen both Austin Air and AirDoctor on numerous lists of air purifiers that will help you eliminate pollutants. Both are highly rated with great reviews. Let's dive into the AirDoctor 5000 and the Austin Air HealthMate Plus. 

Price
  • Austin Air's HealthMate Plus is $854.99. (Wellness Junction can help with a discount).
  • The AirDoctor 5000 will cost $999.99.
Filtration System

AirDoctor 5000

Inside the AirDoctor 5000 is a robust filtration system that is effective at removing particulates and VOCs. They have dual-sided filtration with a pre-filter, Carbon/VOC filter, and UltraHEPA filter on each side of the unit. (see picture below) 

  • The UltraHEPA filters are medical-graded and will remove pollutants as small as 0.003 microns. This includes viruses, bacteria, smoke, pollen, mold, and dust mites.  
  • The Carbon/VOC filters (3.3 lbs.) will help eliminate Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and odors.
  • The pre-filters remove larger particles like pet hair and dust. 

Austin Air HealthMate Plus

The HealthMate Plus is know to remove a wide range of gases, chemicals, VOC’s and formaldehyde. The Potassium Iodide mixed in with the Activated Carbon/Zeolite mixture is a top choice for people exposed to smoke from wildfires.

  • True HEPA is a medical-grade filter that removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 99% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns.
  • Carbon filter has 15 lbs. of activated Carbon/Zeolite/Potassium Iodide that removes gases, chemicals, smoke, VOCs, odors and formaldehyde. 
  • Pre-filters (two of them) that help remove medium and large particles (dust, hair, spores and pollen).

The way the AirDoctor 5000 filtration system is set up allows for the pollutants to come in from two sides of the machine. Austin Air has a 360° system that allow pollutants to come in from all sides. Austin Air and AirDoctor both have great HEPA filters. Again, like other brands, AirDoctor doesn't have as much activated carbon to eliminate VOCs, gases, chemicals, and odors. They do have notification that tells you when to change the filters unlike Austin Air which is a bonus to have. 

AirDoctor Filter Life Expectancy Austin Air Filter Life Expectancy
Pre-filters — No replacement. Just wash/clean occasionally.
Carbon/VOC filters — replace every 6 months ($125 for replacements)
UltraHEPA filters — replace every 12 months ($125 for replacements)

AirDoctor Air Purifiers
Austin Air vs AirDoctor - AirDoctor 5000 Filtration System Austin Air vs AirDoctor - Austin Air HealthMate Plus Filtration System

Austin Air — The units are made of solid steel and welded together to prevent any rattling. They are also powder-coated that will prevent any off-gassing. Minimal plastic is on the units with the caster wheels and control knob.

Noise Levels - How loud are they?

Austin Air vs Winix

We've got quite the Battle Royale going on with these air purifiers. In round 4, we have Austin Air vs. Winix. We've seen Winix on a lot of best air purifier lists alongside Austin Air. Both are highly rated and have great reviews. Let's not wait any longer and get into the battle of air purifiers, the Winix 5500-2 and the Austin Air HealthMate.

Price
  • Austin Air's HealthMate will run you $714.99. (Follow the HealthMate link for a discount).
  • The Winix 5500-2 will be much lower at $249.99.

Wow, what a price difference between the two air purifiers. You could buy almost 3 Winix air purifiers for the price of the HealthMate. But why is there such a difference? Let's look at the filtration systems of each and that might help.

Filtration System

Winix 5500-2

The Winix 5500-2 has a 4-stage filtration process that includes a filtration process called PlasmaWave Technology. You don't see this with many air purifiers, so Winix has some technology that others don't. 

  • The PlasmaWave technology works by producing hydroxyl groups (-OH) that are negatively charged ions and attach to things like bacteria and viruses that are positively charged. This will then destroy them with the end result being water. This does not produce harmful levels of ozone but does produce a small amount that is lower than the allowable level.
  • The True HEPA filter captures 99.99% of airborne allergens including pollen, dust, smoke, pet dander, and other ultrafine particles as small as 0.003 microns.
  • The Carbon filter is washable and has less than 1 pound of deodorized carbon pellets. This filter reduces VOCs and odors from cooking, pets, and smoke along with helping prolong the HEPA filter's lifespan. 
  • The pre-filter is mesh that is washable and helps capture the larger particles in the air. 

Austin Air HealthMate

The HealthMate is the original air purifier from Austin Air and still the most popular. It has to do with the great filters inside the unit. It will eliminate unwanted pollutants with some of the largest HEPA and Carbon filters on the market.

  • The True HEPA is a medical-grade filter that removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 99% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns.
  • Carbon filter has 15 lbs. of Activated Carbon/Zeolite mixture that will remove gases, chemicals, VOCs, odors, and formaldehyde. 
  • Pre-filters (two of them) that help remove medium and large particles (dust, hair, spores and pollen).

Austin Air and Winix both have great HEPA filters. The main difference will be with the carbon filters. While Winix has less than 1 pound of carbon, Austin Air has 15 pounds of activated carbon. But you are able to wash the Winix carbon filter and they also have the PlasmaWave Technology. Overall, Austin Air has larger HEPA and Carbon filters. 


Winix Filter Life Expectancy Austin Air Filter Life Expectancy
Pre-filter — No replacement. Just wash/clean occasionally.
Carbon/HEPA filters — replace every 12 months ($79.99 for pair)
Carbon, HEPA, and pre-filters (come as one system) — replace every 5 years
Replacement filter cost $289.99 for the HealthMate
Winix Air Purifiers
Austin Air vs Winix - Winix 5500-2 Filtration System Austin Air vs Winix - Austin Air HealthMate Filtration System
Housing Material

Winix — The housing is made from plastic. While this is not ideal, many air purifiers are made from plastic and don't cause problems like major off-gassing. 

Austin Air — The units are made of solid steel and welded together to prevent any rattling. They are also powder-coated that will prevent any off-gassing. Minimal plastic is on the units with the caster wheels and control knob.

Noise Levels - How loud are they?

Winix 5500-2 has maximum noise levels around 55 dB on the highest speed and around 27 dB at the lowest speed. It has 5 different fan speeds that includes a sleep mode. 

Austin Air HealthMate has 3 different fan speeds with noise levels ranging from less than 50 dB to around 65 dB (decibels. The HealthMate will be a little more loud when on the highest speed. 

*Around 50 db is moderate rainfall or a quiet office setting and 60 dB is considered a normal conversation or background music*

Warranties

Austin Air — The air purifiers are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for five (5) years from the date of purchase and a five (5) year pro-rated filter warranty, by far the most comprehensive in the industry. If the filter lasts less than five years, Austin Air will discount the cost of a new filter based on the number of years the filter has been in use. They also have a 30-day money back guarantee!

Austin Air has a more powerful filtration system with 15 lbs. of activated carbon while Winix only has 1 lb.

The Molekule Air Pro isn't like most other air purifiers. It doesn't have a HEPA filter but instead has their own PECO technology. PECO stands for Photo Electro Chemical Oxidation and it works by breaking down irritants on a molecular level. 

  • The PECO technology physically captures particles and chemically destroys pollutants instead of using a HEPA filter to capture the pollutants. By using light filtration, PECO technology creates a reacton on the surface of the filter that destroys pollutants by breaking down the molecular structure.

Austin Air Bedroom Machine

The Bedroom Machine has the most levels of filtration in an Austin Air unit with 5. Each stage will help eliminate unwanted pollutants with some of the largest HEPA and Carbon filters on the market.

  • The True HEPA is a medical-grade filter that removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 99% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns.
  • Carbon filter has 15 lbs. of Activated Carbon/Zeolite mixture that will remove gases, chemicals, VOCs, odors, and formaldehyde. 
  • The Military-Grade HEGA Carbon Cloth (High Efficiency Gas Arrestance) helps eliminate chemicals, gases, viruses and bacteria.
  • Two pre-filters help remove medium and large particles (dust, hair, spores and pollen).

Austin Air and Molekule have two different filtration systems that help eliminate pollutants from your inside air. Austin Air uses a True HEPA filter along with Activated Carbon and a HEGA Carbon Cloth while Molekule uses their own PECO technology. In the end, we would go with the tried and trusted HEPA/Carbon combination that is proven to help your air.


Molekule Filter Life Expectancy Austin Air Filter Life Expectancy
Multi-Layer PECO filter— replace around every 6 months ($150.00 - a subscription for filters brings price down to around $100.00) Carbon, HEPA, and pre-filters (come as one system) — replace every 5 years
Replacement filter cost $569.99 for the Bedroom Machine

Housing Material

Molekule — The housing is made from anodized aluminum and medical-grade polycarbonate.

Austin Air — The Bedroom Machine is made of solid steel and welded together to prevent any rattling. To prevent any off-gassing, the units are powder-coated. There is minimal plastic on the units with the caster wheels, blower/fan and control knob being the only components.

Noise Levels - How loud are they?

Molekule Air Pro has maximum noise levels around 64 dB on the highest speed and around 33 dB at the lowest speed. The unit has 6 different speed settings so you can find a perfect balance of purifying the air but not too noisy.

Austin Air HealthMate has 3 different fan speeds with noise levels ranging from less than 50 dB to around 65 dB (decibels). The Bedroom Machine, on the highest speed, will be just like the Air Pro from Molekule for noise. 

*Around 50 db is moderate rainfall or a quiet office setting and 60 dB is considered a normal conversation or background music*

Warranties

Austin Air — The air purifiers are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for five (5) years from the date of purchase and a five (5) year pro-rated filter warranty, by far the most comprehensive in the industry.

Austin Air vs Honeywell

In Round 6, we have Austin Air versus Honeywell in the Battle Royale of Air Purifiers. We've had some great air purifiers and this round looks like it will not disappoint. Honeywell air purifiers are rated highly and appear on a bunch of Best Air Purifiers lists alongside Austin Air. 

Let's get to it and compare the Austin Air Allergy Machine and the Honeywell HPA300 True HEPA Allergen Plus Series air purifier. 

Price
  • Austin Air's Allergy Machine is $764.99. (Wellness Junction has a discount if you follow the link).
  • Honeywell's HPA300 is priced much lower at $249.99.

The price difference between the air purifiers is quite large, so let's dig into what is inside each to eliminate unwanted pollutants from your home or office. 

Filtration System

Honeywell HPA300

Inside the Honeywell HPA300 air purifier is three True HEPA filters along with an odor reducing carbon pre-filter. The main thing you will not see is activated carbon pellets but instead the pre-filter is coated with carbon. This unit will not be the best for removing VOCs, chemicals, and gases from your home. This will be great for allergens and particles though and it does a great job at that!

  • True HEPA filters (3 of them!!) help capture up to 99.97% of the following microscopic airborne allergens and particles: dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mite debris and smoke.
  • The Carbon pre-filter helps capture large airborne particles and reduces odors and VOCs.  The pre-filter should be replaced every 3 months, as it will become covered with particles and fibers that will reduce filtration performance.

Austin Air Allergy Machine

The Allergy Machine was designed to help people with asthma and allergy problems. Just like the Honeywell HPA300, the Allergy Machine does not have activated carbon but instead the units have a Military-Grade HEGA Carbon Cloth. The carbon cloth teams up with a Medical-Grade HEPA filter to help eliminate viruses, bacteria, dust, dander and allergens.

  • True HEPA is a medical-grade filter (60 sq. ft.) that removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and 99% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns.
  • The HEGA (High Efficiency Gas Arrestance) Carbon Cloth is Military-Graded that adsorbs chemicals, gases, viruses and bacteria.
  • The two pre-filters help remove medium and large particles (dust, hair, spores and pollen).

Unlike most of the air purifiers we've been comparing on this list, both of these do not have activated carbon pellets to help eliminate VOCs, gases, and chemicals. Instead Honeywell uses a Carbon coated pre-filter while Austin Air uses a Military-Grade Carbon cloth. Both will have great HEPA filters that team up with the carbon media. With a larger HEPA filter that also has 2 pre-filters, we find the Austin Air Allergy Machine would be a more robust filtration system for most. But if money is an issue, the Honeywell HPA300 is a great unit that will eliminate allergens and particles from your air. 

Honeywell Filter Life Expectancy Austin Air Filter Life Expectancy
Carbon pre-filter — replace every 3 months ($12.99)
HEPA filters — replace every 12 months ($79.99 for 3 pack)  
HEPA, HEGA Carbon Cloth and pre-filters (come as one system) — replace every 5 years
Replacement filter cost $339.99 for the Allergy Machine
Honeywell Air Purifiers
Austin Air vs Honeywell - Honeywell HPA300 Filtration System Austin Air vs Honeywell - Austin Air Allergy Machine Filtration System
Housing Material

Honeywell — The housing is made from plastic. While this is not ideal due to possible off-gassing, reviews show this unit has had no problems with that.

Austin Air — Made of solid steel, Austin Air welds the units together to prevent any rattling and powder-coates them to prevent any off-gassing. Minimal plastic is on the units with the caster wheels, blower, and control knob.

Noise Levels - How loud are they?

Honeywell HPA300 has maximum noise levels around 60 dB on the highest speed (Turbo) and around 45 dB on lowest speed. 

Austin Air Allergy Machine has 3 different fan speeds with noise levels ranging from less than 50 dB to around 65 dB (decibels). 

Both units at their highest speed will tend to be a bit loud. But both will be working at their greatest strength when on high/turbo speeds. You could find some other air purifiers that are a little bit quieter than these, but both of these have high reviews for what they are supposed to do: remove unwanted particles from your air. 

*Around 50 db is moderate rainfall or a quiet office setting and 60 dB is considered a normal conversation or background music*

Warranties

Austin Air — The air purifiers are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for five (5) years from the date of purchase and a five (5) year pro-rated filter warranty, by far the most comprehensive in the industry. If the filter lasts less than five years, Austin Air will discount the cost of a new filter based on the number of years the filter has been in use. They also have a 30-day money back guarantee!

Honeywell— The air purifiers have a five (5) year limited warranty.

Filtration System

Coway Airmega 400

The Airmega 400 has dual filters that allows for the contaminated air to be drawn in from two sides. There will be a pre-filter, HEPA filter, and Carbon filter on two sides of the unit while the clean air comes out the top. The Max2 filters combine the True Green HEPA and activated carbon together that allows for easy installation and maintenance. 

  • The Max2 filters capture and deactivates smaller particles.
    • Green True HEPA filters capture an 99.999% of ultra fine particles like viruses, bacteria, fungi and pollen, and includes an antimicrobial treatment to deactivate the spread of contaminants.
    •  The Activated Carbon filters (1.5 lbs.) remove odor-causing harmful gases like VOCs. 
  • The pre-filters capture dust, pet hair, and other large particles and can also be washed so they do not need to be replaced. 

Austin Air HealthMate

The HealthMate is where Austin Air got its start and is still the most popular unit. With a perfect combination of a True HEPA filter and Activated Carbon, the HealthMate addresses your everyday air purification needs. The 360° intake system draws air into all sides of the unit and then goes through a 4-step filtration process.
