The Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. (HM250) air purifier is one of the most comprehensive air cleaning solutions available for smaller rooms. It offers all the benefits of the Austin Air HealthMate Jr. model, but uses an activated carbon blend that is impregnated with potassium iodide to more effectively remove chemically-reactive gases, offering enhanced protection from formaldehyde, ammonia and other hazardous chemical fumes produced by household cleaning products, detergents, paints, furniture, carpets, drapery, office equipment, etc. The Austin Air Healthmate Plus Jr. is also capable of removing airborne particles such as pollen, dust, mould spores and pet dander, as well as controlling odours in small spaces.

The Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. features a Permafilt pre-filter that is designed to be easily vacuumed from the outside, making this air purifier simple to maintain and eliminating costly 3-month pre-filter changes. The Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. uses a combined medical-grade HEPA and 6.5 lb. activated carbon/zeolite/potassium iodide blend filter that only needs to be replaced once every five years. This air purifier also features a perforated 24 gauge steel, 360 degree air intake housing with over 3 square feet of intake area for exceptional air gathering capability, three fan speed settings, and a louvered air flow output directed to one side from the upper deck.

The Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. is perfect for small bedrooms, enclosed offices and other small living spaces where chemical fumes are of concern. With a baked-on powder-coated finish and four colours to choose from, this air purifier blends easily into almost any décor.

“I have been sleeping so soundly since I've received my Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. I do not wake up with eyes burning nor do I wake up stuffed up anymore. This is such an improvement! Thank you. I can breathe so much easier, and deeper, you can feel the air is clean! Very happy client!”
M. Renaud, Windsor, ON

“I have had a chance to use the Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr., and I am happy to report that it works wonderfully. The fumes and odours from my tintype photography chemistry are extracted very well by the air purifier. I use the HealthMate Plus Jr. in conjunction with the ceiling fan for full fume and odour control in the darkroom.”
H. Herget, Toronto, ON

“Thank you very much for your assistance with the purchase of my Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. air purifier. Your patience and prompt and courteous service was much appreciated. I am looking forward to the arrival of my second Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. unit. I have allergies to dust and will use this one in my bedroom. I have had the other one in my art studio for one week now, and it is wonderful to breathe clean and fresh air while working. I also like the idea that I can vacuum the pre-filter from outside, and don’t have to worry about replacing the filters for 5 years.”
M. Bosnjak, Calgary, AB

“I purchased the Austin HealthMate Plus Jr (HM250), which is really helping a lot with the wood smoke and my allergic reaction to it. It is useful for a single room, so I am thinking of purchasing the larger HealthMate Plus (HM450) for downstairs. Thank you for all your help and advice on this matter, my health has significantly improved. Thanks also for the terrific service, I have been telling friends about your company and the high level of service I have received.”
J. Lee, Ottawa, ON

“Robert was super knowledgeable about air filters and guided me to resources to help answer my questions regarding the component materials. He went above and beyond to help me order the Austin Air HealthMate Plus Junior to help clean the air in the place I just moved into. It has made a tremendous difference in removing the scent of chemicals, as well as removing pollen, dust and dander. Thanks so much!”
Tina C., Toronto, ON

** An Important Word on Air Flow Rates and Room Coverage for the Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. Air Purifier:

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 Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr. be used in rooms of up to 120 sq. ft. (for those with chemical sensitivities) or 235 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.
