Are you worried about VOC’s and chemicals in your home? If so, you’re not alone. We receive lots of questions about the capability of our air purifiers to remove chemicals from the home. Particleboard, plywood, glues and adhesives, insulation materials, flooring and fire retardants can all emit dangerous chemicals and VOC’s into the environment.
If this is a concern for you, the Austin Air HealthMate Plus®, with its broad spectrum adsorption, is our recommended air purifier.
How does it work?
First let’s take a look at the filter. The Austin Air HealthMate Plus® has 4 stages of filtration.
- The first, traps larger pollutants such as dust, hair and pet dander. Basically, the pollutants we can see.
- The second stage of filtration takes care of medium sized particles, such as mold, spores and pollen.
- The third stage of filtration uses a unique blend of Activated Carbon, Potassium Iodide Impregnated Carbon and Zeolite. Making it highly effective at removing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, benzenes, chemicals, gases and odors. But it doesn’t stop there.
- The fourth stage of filtration uses Medical Grade HEPA. HEPA removes the tiniest of particles, as small as 0.1 microns. To give this some perspective, the average human hair is around 75 microns in diameter. 0.1 micron really is tiny.
Unique 360-degree intake system
Unlike other brands, Austin Air uses a 360-degree intake system. Drawing air into all sides of the filter like this ensures maximum cleaning capacity. We are also the only air purifier constructed using solid steel and a non-toxic powder coated paint. No plastic, no polystyrene, no off gassing.
Unrivalled filter life
