Why the Allergy Store only carries a couple of air cleaner lines.

Updated on November 23, 2008

The answer is very simple. We only carry products we know work…

Let’s start with the Austin Air Healthmate HEPA air cleaner. First I would like to point out all their air cleaners are made, not just assymbled in the USA. Austin Air has been around for over 15 years and even today customers are using the same machines they bought 15 years ago. You see, these units were built to work, work hard and last.

The Healthmate comes in two sizes and four filter types. The small unit is perfect for small to medium size areas up to 700 sq. ft. The large unit is great for larger spaces like large bedrooms, living rooms, classrooms, studies, etc.

The Austin Air regular HEPA filter is designed for everyday air quality concerns. It filters out dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, dust mites and other airborne particles with it’s 4-stage filtration system. The carbon/zeolite mix filters out various odors, chemicals and gasses.

The Healthmate plus series is for the chemically sensitive. It has all the same features as the regular as well as advanced gas filtering capabilities to remove even more household chemicals, gases and odors.

The Allergy Machine also uses the medical grade HEPA filter but this unit uses a military grade activated carbon cloth instead of the activated carbon/zeolite.

Their newest air cleaner was developed specificatly for pet owners. The Pet machine has all the same features as the Austin air regular but the activated carbon bed is specially designed to absorb those lingering pet odors.

Construction wise all of the Austin Air air cleaners are built to last. The unit is made from 16 gage steel, not plastic, and a powder coated finish that does not outgas. Each unit has a simple to operate 3 speed motor. Just turn the switch to the desired airflow. No bells or lights.

Maintenance is so simple. Dust or wipe down the unit once a month. The filter gets changed out every five years. Yes I said 5 years. They even back it up with a warranty. The unit itself carries a 5 year warranty.

Austin Air Healthmate air cleaners are effective, dependable and affordable.

Now let’s talk about Airpura air purification systems. We started carrying them about a year ago. They produce products with very specific solutions to problems such as tobacco smoke abatement, UV germicidal capabilities and chemical and gas vapor removal.

The T600 air cleaner is built with the smoker in mind. This air cleaner is specially designed to clean the air of tars and chemicals from tobacco smoke. It has very deep carbon bed, 26lbs, and a special tar barrier prefilter that acts like a cigarette filter trapping the tar.

The UV 600 incorporates UV Germicidal lamps in the design. The great thing about UV is it sterilizes antigens, pathogens and mold spores as they are trapped on the filters.

Now the P600 is their most advance air cleaner. It not only has HEPA, activated carbon and UV it also includes the latest in nano-technology, TitanClean photocatalytic oxidizion technology. Fancy wording for destroying more chemicals, like radon, than any other air cleaner available.

Airpura air cleaners are also made with 16 gage steel, powder coated finish and are simple to use and maintain. Once again nothing fancy but effective and that is what you really need. They carry a warranty from 5 to 10 years. While not made in the USA they are made in Canada.

The other day while shopping at Home Depot and Lowes I checked out their selection of air cleaners. Depot carries Honeywell and Lowes Hunter. Aside from the fact they are all plastic, they are made in China. Each unit had several filters that need to be changed every couple of months. I did not see any warranties better than 2 years.

When you are looking for your next air cleaner think in terms of value not cost. Think in terms of effectiveness not gadgets. Austin Air Healthmate and Airpura air purifiers are built to last. I can guarantee you won’t find any other units on the market that will do and be just as effective 10 – 20 years from now.

Wishing you the best of health
