You may be wondering if an EnviroKlenz air purifier is right for you, or if you should go with an Austin Air air purifier. These are two of the top air purifiers on the market today that will provide you with clean air and why Wellness Junction carries both Austin Air and EnviroKlenz.
There's no question that air quality is a pressing issue, especially inside our homes and offices.
Pollution and allergens can make it difficult to breathe, get adequate sleep, and can make your home unsafe.
That is why many people look to air purifiers to improve the quality of the air in their homes and in turn feel safer.
With a lot of brands out there to pick from, it can get really frustrating to find an air purifier for your needs.
On this page, we will compare and contrast these two popular air purifier brands to help you make the best decision for your needs.
EnviroKlenz vs. Austin Air — A Comparison of Air Purifiers
Let's get one of the main things people look at out of the way, the price. Air purifiers can range from around $100 all the way up to $2,000 or more.
With EnviroKlenz and Austin Air, the price range between the two are very similar and are in the middle/upper tier on pricing.
The pricing reflects the quality of air filtration inside the units. Both brands have some of the top filtration systems in an air purifier. Let's go chat about that below.
The first thing you will notice with any EnviroKlenz air purifier is that there is no carbon filtration like most air purifiers. So what will remove the VOCs, odors, and gases that activated carbon normally takes care of?
The EnviroKlenz Air Cartridge is the answer. This filter is what makes EnviroKlenz stand out from others. First created for the US Military, the Air Cartridge's patented Earth Mineral Technology utilizes safe earth minerals to capture and destroy airborne toxic and noxious gasses, particulates, allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other allergy triggers. It does not contain any abrasive chemicals, masking agents, or toxic fillers so it is safe for you and your family.
- EnviroKlenz air purifiers also come with a true medical-grade HEPA filter.
- In the Air System Plus, you get two, 9-watt, UV lights that are located before (and radiating on) the collection side of the HEPA filter. The UVC lights are continuously shining on the collected organisms with high efficiency of kill.
Austin Air —
All four Austin Air units will have 2 pre-filters (medium and large particles) and a true medical-grade HEPA filter.
- The HealthMate will also have a carbon filter that has 15 lbs. of activated carbon and Zeolite in it.
- The HealthMate Plus adds potassium iodide into the carbon filter for extra protection from smoke, chemicals, noxious gases, VOC’s, and formaldehyde.
- The Allergy Machine has no activated carbon but rather the Military-grade HEGA (High Efficiency Gas Arrestance) carbon cloth that provides an extremely large surface area for adsorption of chemicals, gases, viruses and bacteria.
- The Bedroom Machine has the carbon filter and also the HEGA carbon cloth. This unit will give you the ultimate protection with 5 levels of filtration.
Both filter systems are great for eliminating pollutants inside your home even if they go about it with different filters. For EnviroKlenz, you will have to replace each one separately and at different times. Austin Air has a filter system that comes as one unit that you will have to replace. Both make it easy and quick to change out filters.

Housing Material - No Plastic Here!
EnviroKlenz — The metal housing is designed with powder-coated paint to prevent any off-gassing and won't wear down over time.
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 like EnviroKlenz.
Both EnviroKlenz and Austin Air have very little plastic parts on the units. The caster wheels and control knobs are the few that exist. Some air purifiers made of plastic can off-gas which emits harmful chemicals. One of the only plastic parts on the unit is the caster wheels that allow you to easily move it around your home.
Noise Level - How loud is it at different speeds?
One of the questions we get asked the most is, "How loud is the air purifier?". When you have the air purifier running all the time, you don't want a loud unit that dominates your home. Both EnviroKlenz and Austin Air have units that can be a bit loud on the highest setting but not unbearable.
Austin Air units, depending on the fan speed used, have noise levels that range from less than 50 to around 62 dB (decibels). With 3 different speeds, (low/medium/high) you can find the best fan speed to accommodate the noise level you like.
EnviroKlenz has has units that range from 54-62 dB depending on what speed the air purifier is set to so this is very similar to Austin Air. EnviroKlenz units have 4 different speeds, Whisp-Air is at 54 dB, Low is at 56 dB, Medium is at 59 dB, and High is at 62 dB.
*Around 50 db is moderate rainfall or a quiet office setting and 60 dB is considered a normal conversation or background music*
Both Austin Air and EnviroKlenz have great warranties that back their amazing air purifiers.
