Ease of Use Rating
The Austin Healthmate air purifier was easy to set up and operate. There are three filters within the air purifier to keep track of to clean or replace but there is no indicator to tell you when to replace each. The process to replace the filters is a little clumsy as you need to unscrew the screws on the bottom. We had some difficulty getting the pre-filter to fit properly when re-installing the filters.
The Austin Healthmate air purifier has a max air flow of 250 cfm (cubic feet per minute) in our testing on the higher fan speeds so in our opinion it can clean rooms in the 400 sq ft range( 20’ x 20’). The noise level at the highest fan speed is louder than we feel most users would want while in a room and found the Austin air purifier to be similar in noise level to other leading HEPA air purifiers.
The Austin air purifier removed 88% of the particles that were passing through the air purifier. This places the Austin air purifier in the top half of air purifier performance.
In searching the web for customer reviews we found few reviews. For the reviews we did find 62% gave the Healthmate a 5 star rating and a 4.5 star rating overall. Many positive comments were given for the ability to remove dust and pollen as well as some ability to remove VOC's.
