HealthMate Plus Austin Air Purifier

Boosted protection from chemical contaminants.

The Austin Air HealthMate Plus air purifier offers all the benefits of the Austin Air HealthMate, with the added advantage of potassium iodide impregnated into a special blend of activated carbon to more effectively remove toxic and chemically-reactive gases. Superior gas filtration provides enhanced protection from ammonia, formaldehyde and benzene, household cleaning products and off-gassing from paint, carpets, furniture, draperies, electronic equipment and newly bought products brought into your home or office. The HealthMate Plus is an ideal choice to protect new home owners against volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and off-gassing from building materials, new flooring and cabinetry, paints, varnishes and sealants. In addition, the Austin Air HealthMate Plus removes bacteria and viruses while offering excellent odour and particle control (e.g., for pollen, dust, mould spores, pet dander, smoke, traffic exhaust).

This machine is recommended for people with severe chemical sensitivities (MCS). See the user guide for details about the HealthMate Plus’ efficiency at removing specific chemicals and gases.
Powerful, low maintenance air cleaner for use in larger rooms, small apartments, offices, workshops and artist studios.
Robust construction including steel housing and toxin-free components thoroughly sealed to prevent leaking of uncleaned air.
Five year mechanical warranty for the machine and five year pro-rated guarantee for the true HEPA/carbon/zeolite filter impregnated with Potassium Iodide provides unparalleled combination of value, performance and build quality in the air purification industry.
