I’ve had allergies since I was a child, so I wanted something to help clean the air we breathe at home. My son suffers from similar allergies, making me determined to find a purifier that would ease his sniffles, as well. After looking at a lot of different units, I decided on the Austin Air HealthMate. Since using it for the past year, I can confidently recommend this great product.
The Austin Air HealthMate is perfect if you want an all-around, easy-to-use air purifier. You take it out of the box, plug it in, and off it goes. It has three settings, which means it couldn't be simpler. In terms of noise, the low setting is barely noticeable. The high setting, though louder, will significantly increase the air circulation in your room - which is great when the goal is to remove impurities from that very air. We leave it on the low setting at night and sleep right through. Any noise isn't enough to keep us awake, which was a big consideration in our choice.
In four or five years, the filter will need to be replaced. One filter replacement in half a decade? That's what I'm talking about! I didn't want to bother with filter replacements every few months and I knew I'd be the one ordering the filters, so I figured I'd make it easy on myself. All I have to do is vacuum the outside of the purifier every month or so and I can do that in the course of my normal cleaning routine. Simple and low-maintenance - what every mom wants to hear.
I've been able to breathe easier since getting the Austin Air HealthMate. I know it's constantly working to get rid of the pollen and dust that seem to turn my body against me. Since it has a medical-quality HEPA filter, I know that it's trapping even the tiny particles that might otherwise slip through. Within a week of starting to use it, I noticed a difference in our air quality. It was a surprise to find that my respiratory system suddenly felt clearer. I even noticed my little boy sneezing less, which has been such a relief.
We have cats at home and not only does the HealthMate reduce the amount of shed hairs floating in the air, it also reduces the smell of their litter box. I especially liked the HealthMate because it comes with so much activated carbon and zeolite. I know the carbon is supposed to help get rid of odors. A lot of other filters I looked at were only "carbon-coated" or had small amounts of carbon. That's not true of the HealthMate. It's serious about getting rid of smells and other impurities.
The Austin Air HealthMate isn't cheap. In my opinion, that's why it works. That old saying, "you get what you pay for," perfectly applies here. I wanted to make sure I didn't waste money buying a cheap purifier that I'd just have to replace when it broke or didn't work. That won't be the case with the HealthMate. It even comes with a warranty, which I appreciated. It's always reassuring when a company will stand behind its products. While it may be more expensive than other air purifiers, I find that it's well worth the money for what you get in quality.
The unit isn't small or flimsy - I believe this will last for longer than five years, whereas I couldn't say that for many others. Plus, we know it won't fall apart if our son knocks into it, which is always a concern with a rambunctious child in the house. It does what it says it will, but even better, it does it well. When it comes to protecting the health of my family, that's all that really matters. Austin Air has met and exceeded all my expectations. I'm so happy I bought the Austin HealthMate air purifier. I don't know what I'd do without it.
