The Austin Air HealthMate Plus® Filter features a true medical grade HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filter surrounded by a blend of potassium iodide impregnated carbon/zeolite mixture. This additive, along with the activated carbon and zeolite, delivers greater capacity for the filtration of chemicals and gases including Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The HEPA filters 99.97% of all particles down to 0.3 microns in size and 95% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns. This combination of medias provide improved relief in highly contaminated air spaces for those who are severely chemically sensitive.
All standard size units are interchangeable with all standard size filters. So, if you purchased a standard size HealthMate® and would like to upgrade to a standard size HealthMate Plus®, simply purchase a replacement HealthMate Plus® filter.
