Air Concerns

Chemicals, Gases and VOC’s

Cleaning products, furnishing, paint, and flooring can all emit dangerous chemicals, gases and VOCs into the environment. Often odorless or masked by other more pleasant odors, they cause allergy flare-ups and exacerbate existing conditions. Some VOCs, such as formaldehyde, are known carcinogens linked to cancer.

The Austin Air HealthMate® Plus removes the widest range of chemicals, gases and VOCs in your home.
If you’re concerned about chemicals, gases and VOCs in your home, the Austin Air HealthMate®Plus with its broad-spectrum adsorption is our recommended air purifier. Using a combination of Medical Grade HEPA and a unique carbon blend, the Austin Air HealthMate®Plus will effectively remove a wide range of chemicals, VOCs, and other airborne contaminants.


Have you noticed a musty, damp odor? Perhaps you have experienced water damage from a leak in the roof, a damaged pipe, or even flooding?

Whatever the cause, mold is a major source of indoor air pollution and can have serious health risks. Mold produces millions of airborne spores that, when inhaled, cause allergy-like symptoms, including runny nose, itchy watering eyes, coughing, and sneezing. Mold can also exacerbate asthma symptoms, increasing the risk of an asthma attack.

In the right conditions, certain types of molds can also produce Mycotoxins. Although naturally occurring, Mycotoxins can be extremely dangerous for some individuals. They have been associated with liver cancer and kidney failure; they can also damage the brain and central nervous system. For some people, the effects of mold can be devastating.

The Austin Air HealthMate™ removes up to 99.97% of airborne mold spores.

If you’re looking to improve the quality of air in your home, the Austin Air HealthMate™ is, without doubt, our best air purifier for damp environments where mold is a problem. The Medical Grade HEPA used in the Austin Air HealthMate™ will effectively remove mold spores from the air, while the blend of carbon and zeolite will take care of the Mycotoxins that can develop when mold is present.


We all love our pets, but cats, dogs, and birds create lots of airborne pollutants in the home. If left, these pollutants cause allergies, exacerbate existing conditions such as COPD and asthma, and are often the source of unwanted odors.

The Austin Air HealthMate™ removes up to 99.97% of allergens and odors in your home.

The Austin Air HealthMate™ uses a combination of Medical Grade HEPA and over 780 cubic inches of Activated Carbon and Zeolite to effectively remove up to 99.97% of airborne allergens and odors. Keep the air in your home clean, safe, and fresh with the Austin Air HealthMate™.


If you live close to a busy road or factory, pollution from the outside can find its way into your home. This type of air pollution is associated with a long list of health risks, including heart disease, strokes, dementia, and Alzheimer’s. The fumes from vehicles and factory emissions can also exacerbate existing conditions such as asthma, allergies, COPD, and other respiratory issues.

The Austin Air Healthmate Plus™ Removes Fumes from Traffic and Industry.

If you live in an urban setting or close to industrial activity, we recommend the Austin Air HealthMate Plus™. Using a combination of Medical Grade HEPA and more than 780 cubic inches of Activated Carbon, Potassium Iodide Impregnated Carbon and Zeolite, the HealthMate Plus™ is the best choice for the removal of the wide range of chemicals, gases, and odors often found in pollution from vehicles and industry which can often lead to a myriad of health issues.


For anyone living in an area affected by wildfires, the effects of the smoke will be all too familiar. And, if you have a wood burner in your home, they also produce smoke that can affect your health.

In the short term, exposure to smoke causes breathing difficulties, burning eyes, and a sore throat. For people with ongoing respiratory problems, such as asthma or COPD, smoke inhalation exacerbates symptoms and increases the chances of an asthma attack. Smoke exposure can also increase the risk of a person suffering from a heart attack or stroke, and is linked to diseases such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s. New evidence also suggests that smoke from wildfires plays a direct role in the spread of COVID-19.

The Austin Air HealthMate Plus™ removes up to 99.97% of the particulates found in smoke.

If you’re concerned about smoke from wildfires or a wood burner, the Austin Air HealthMate Plus™ is our number one choice. Its unique blend of Activated Carbon, Potassium Iodide Impregnated Carbon, and Zeolite removes the widest range of chemicals and VOC’s, including those found in smoke.

Viruses and Bacteria

We now know the main method of transmission for common viruses including the common cold, the flu, and COVID-19 is airborne. When we come into contact with an infected person, they release the virus into the surrounding environment, and the higher the number of viral particles in the air, the greater our risk of infection.

The Austin Air Bedroom Machine™ captures and destroys airborne viruses.

From the common cold, to more extraordinary viruses like COVID-19, we’ve got you covered. According to the CDC, WHO, and EPA air purifiers using HEPA and Carbon are the safest and most effective solution for minimizing the spread of viruses in indoor spaces.

If COVID-19 is your main concern, we recommend the Austin Air Bedroom Machine™. The Medical Grade HEPA technology used in all our models effectively removes 99% of airborne viruses; however, the Austin Air Bedroom Machine™ has an extra level of protection against COVID-19, as the HEGA carbon cloth also captures and destroys airborne viruses.

You may also want to consider the Austin Air HealthMate™ and HealthMate Plus™; both models use HEPA technology and are highly effective at removing airborne viruses and bacteria, as well as other airborne contaminants.
