AllerAir AirMed 1 and AirMed 3 Air Purifiers

Clean Air that Travels With You

  • Updated versions of the popular AllerAir AirTube series
  • Effective at removing airborne particles such as pollen, dust, mould spores, dust mite by-products and pet dander, as well as helping to remove odours, chemicals and gases in a localized area
  • Both models use AllerAir's exclusive Super-HEPA filter for more effective capture of smaller particulates - 0.1 microns and larger at 99.99% effectiveness (3x smaller than a traditional HEPA filter can capture)
  • AirMed 1 contains 5.5 pounds of double-impregnated activated carbon for enhanced protection from a variety of harmful chemicals and toxic gases
  • AirMed 3 features twice as much carbon (12 lbs.) for greater chemical, gas and odour abatement
  • Both models come with AllerAir's standard Exec carbon blend, but can be upgraded to Vocarb carbon for better adsorption of formaldehyde and other harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
  • Quiet operation makes these units ideal for use beside a bed, near a baby’s crib, or in an office cubicle
  • Compact size and portability make them perfect for travelling - say goodbye to musty hotel rooms and stale air in RVs!

The AllerAir AirMed 1 and AirMed 3 air purifiers are the most comprehensive and safe compact filtration systems available on the market. These small and highly portable air purifiers are capable of filtering a diverse mix of harmful airborne pollutants in a localized space. They are proficient at removing pollen, dust, mold spores, dust mite by-products and pet dander, as well as a wide range of airborne chemicals, gases and odours. The double-impregnated activated carbon blend in the AirMed 1 and AirMed 3 is also able to adsorb the harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are found in every home and workplace.

The entry-level AllerAir AirMed 1 Exec features 5.5 lbs. of AllerAir's double-impregnated activated MAC-B™ Exec carbon blend in a 1.0 in. deep bed, and AllerAir's exclusive Super-HEPA filter that is 99.99% effective at removing particles down to 0.1 microns in size. The AirMed 1 is easy to maintain (the pre-filter can be vacuumed from the outside of the unit), and because it uses individual HEPA and carbon filters, they can be changed at different time intervals, making the air purifier more economical to operate.

For even better air cleaning performance, the AllerAir AirMed 3 Exec is a significant step up from the AirMed 1 Exec. While the AirMed 3 Exec appears the same as the AirMed 1 Exec on the outside, it offers 12 lbs. of Exec activated carbon in a 3.0 in. deep bed, providing superior chemical, gas and odour adsorption. The AirMed 3 Exec also comes equipped with AllerAir's high-performance Super-HEPA filter, which is more effective than traditional HEPA filters at capturing minute particles (99.99% down to 0.1 microns). The AirMed 3 is great value for money, being considerably upgraded from the old AllerAir AirTube Exec model for virtually the same price.

Both the AllerAir AirMed 1 and the AirMed 3 air purifiers can be purchased as Vocarb models. By upgrading the activated carbon from the standard “Exec” blend to AllerAir’s specially-impregnated “Vocarb” carbon, your AllerAir AirMed air purifier will be able to adsorb even greater quantities of formaldehyde, benzene and other harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

The AllerAir AirMed 1 and AirMed 3 air purifiers both feature a variable speed motor that offers quiet operation and customized air flow control, a cylindrical shape that maximizes air circulation, and a 360 degree air intake and output. In addition, an all-metal casing eliminates toxic off-gassing, and a built-in handle permits easy portability.

Some of our customers also use the AllerAir AirMed air purifiers in their cars to adsorb traffic pollutants that may filter into the vehicle or help reduce harmful off-gassing produced by new cars. An inverter (available at your local electronics or hardware store) can be used to connect your AirMed to your cigarette lighter socket. The air purifier can then be conveniently operated from one of the seats (be sure to place a seat belt through the handle to safely secure it in place), or on the floor wedged behind a seat. However, if you are looking solely for a car air purifier, we would recommend the AllerAir MobileAir Car Air Purifier instead.

The AllerAir AirMed 1 and AirMed 3 air purifiers are an ideal choice for use beside a bed, baby’s crib or office desk. They can also be used in enclosed spaces such as a walk-in closet, storage locker or laundry room. The lightweight AirMed units can also be taken with you when you travel for healthier air in stale hotel rooms and RVs. Available in white only.

“I bought an AllerAir AirMed 1 air purifier from you folks about two weeks ago, and am writing to thank you. The difference in the air that I breathe is amazing! I teach in a small music school, and we have many students and their family members pass by every day. Many of these folks wear perfumes and scents, and the AllerAir AirMed 1 makes my studio just about scent-free! It's made my working life much better.”
D. O'Heare, Ottawa, ON

“I love my AllerAir AirMed 1 Exec air purifier. It makes the house smell fresh and clean, plus it’s nice and quiet. Even my sinuses are clear!”
Doug, Onoway, AB

“I wanted to thank you again for all of your assistance recently. I have been using the AllerAir Air Med 1 Exec at work and it helps a lot. Someone down the hall from me was mentioning that she finds the air quality very bad so I am happy to have it!”
B. Yates, Ottawa, ON

** An Important Word on Air Flow Rates and Room Coverage for the AllerAir AirMed Air Purifiers:

Many retailers and manufacturers overstate maximum room coverage figures by calculating them with air flow rates measured without filters installed (i.e., fan output) or with too low a number of air exchanges per hour to properly clean the room. Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers believes in stating the actual delivered air flow rates for the air purifiers we sell, as well as realistic room coverage figures calculated at effective air cleaning levels. Accordingly, we recommend that the Allerair AirMed 1 and AirMed 3 be used in localized areas of up to 40 sq. ft. (for premium cleaning) or 85 sq. ft. (for general purpose filtration).

Also note that air purifier performance should not be judged by air flow rates and room maximums alone. Many features that make an air purifier more effective at cleaning the air actually reduce the air flow rate. For example, higher grade HEPA filters, well-sealed filtration systems and large amounts of carbon all increase air resistance and reduce delivered air flow rates.
