The Best Air Purifier for Formaldehyde – Removes Everything, Leaving You with Pure, Clean Air
Complete Protection – for areas up to 1500 sq. ft. (Jr. 700 sq. ft.)
Austin Air HealthMate Plus Air Purifier and the HealthMate Plus Jr. are specifically designed for pregnant moms, babies, and chemically sensitive people. It’s the one you need to remove formaldehyde off-gassing. It is the same high quality air cleaner as the HealthMate, with additional air cleaning power.
Since the carbon in this model is impregnated with potassium iodide, the HealthMate Plus has exceptional capacity to effectively remove formaldehyde, benzene, wood smoke, and other volatile organic compound (VOCs). Most homes have a substantial amount of formaldehyde lingering in the air. Sources of formaldehyde in homes can be wood panel, cabinets, carpets, construction materials, and particle board furniture. These harmful gases must be removed.
The HealthMate Plus is the best air purifier for formaldehyde and does an excellent job of removing asthma and allergy triggers, in addition to other chemical gases, odors, viruses and bacteria. It can remove up to 3000 toxic chemicals, gases, vapors and fumes. It’s the best air purifier for protecting babies, children and people with chemical sensitivities.
The HealthMate Plus Jr. has the same air cleaning power as the HealthMate Plus, but for a smaller space. This compact and powerful machine is great for maintaining pure air in your bedrooms.

360-Degree Filtering System
Austin Air’s 360-degree intake system draws air into all sides of the purifier, passing it through a 4-stage filter. The result is more clean air delivered faster and more efficiently than any other air cleaner on the market.
STAGE 1 – Large Particle Pre-filter Removes particles easily seen by the naked eye (e.g. dust, dirt, lint, hair and pet dander)
STAGE 2 – Medium Particle Pre-filter Removes small to medium size particles (e.g. molds, spores and pollen)
STAGE 3 – About 15 lbs. of Activated Carbon Impregnated with Potassium Iodide and Zeolite. Removes chemicals, gases and odors (e.g. formaldehyde and ammonia) – with a ‘Miracle Inch’ of complete protection.
STAGE 4 – 60 sq.ft. of Certified True Medical HEPA Removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns
The “Miracle Inch” of Protection
Other air purifiers use granulated carbon to adsorb chemicals and noxious odors. But only Austin Air’s HealthMate and HealthMate Plus offer the Miracle Inch of protection. This inch-thick barrier of carbon & zeolite mix acts like a sponge, scrubbing toxic gases and odors from the air, before they reach the HEPA paper. No other air purifier has this.
What is Zeolite?
Zeolite is a natural mineral that has the capability of adsorbing certain gas molecules. Zeolite is particularly effective in adsorbing formaldehyde, ammonia and carbon monoxide.
What is Activated Carbon?
Austin Air uses specially manufactured Activated Carbon, which is highly porous, giving the carbon a larger surface area to chemically bind and adsorb more impurities like Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and other noxious gases. Activated carbon is effective at removing gas molecules and odors, and is the most common element in military gas masks.
True Medical HEPA Filter Technology
Some air cleaners have True Medical HEPA filter and some don’t, but none have nearly as much of it as an Austin Air cleaner. This gives Austin the most effective cleaning power against airborne particles.
Designed with the Chemically Sensitive in Mind
While many air purifiers have paper and cardboard in their filters and toxic paint on the outside, Austin Air Purifiers have solid steel construction, metal endcaps, and environmentally friendly powder-coated paint – no off-gassing! Unlike air cleaners that use electrostatic-precipitation or ionic generation, the Austin Air cleaners do not emit any by-products such as toxic ozone. The Austin Air cleaner produces nothing but clean air.
Tested and Confirmed
Each Austin Air cleaner must meet stringent government and independent third-party testing standards, with tests designed to protect you by ensuring the products you buy work as claimed. Austin Air takes no shortcuts and never submits its products for private testing to guarantee a desired result.
Extensive product tests on flow rate, flow design, and removal of vapors, gases and sub-micron particles have been performed by Battelle Laboratories, one of the world’s most respected testing laboratories for the Army Corp of Engineers at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center. As result of these tests, Austin Air was chosen by the U.S. Government to fulfill the largest deployment of air cleaners in American history. They were also selected by FEMA and The Red Cross to address the serious air quality concerns in post 9/11 New York.
Low Maintenance and Longest Filter Life
Austin Air purifiers have the longest filter life (5 years) and lowest annual maintenance cost. The only maintenance required will be to occasionally vacuum the 4 sides of the air cleaner to remove larger dust particles. Austin Air filters are designed to last up to 5-years under normal residential use, so you won’t be bothered with frequent filter replacements.
