Air Purifier Reviews and Testimonials

“I purchased an Austin Air HealthMate HM-400 for myself when my asthma, exacerbated by an unhealthy, ozone-emitting electrostatic air purifier being used in my bedroom for 3 years, became difficult to control. I experienced instantaneous improvement in my asthma symptoms with the Austin Air HealthMate, and as an unsuspected bonus, am no longer waking up with a stuffy nose! We now have another one installed in the kitchen where we operate a gas stove and where I spend much of my day. As gifts for our loved ones, my husband and I purchased 3 more Austin Air HealthMate units. My mother, who has Pulmonary Fibrosis, now sleeps more comfortably in her home, and the stale smell in our adult son’s bedroom is a thing of the past. My only regret is that I didn’t research proper air purifier technology sooner.”
D. Brown, Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, QC

“I just wanted to let you know that the AllerAir AirMedic Plus MCS D air purifier that I purchased from you a few weeks ago was a success! I’ve not slept this well at night in a long time. I’ve had the AllerAir running non-stop since I bought it, and it has really made all the difference. That being said, I’ve convinced my work to buy me an AirMedic for the office since I have such difficulty there as well. Thank you so much for recommending this unit to me, it’s incredible how much it has helped.”
M. Savoy, Montreal, QC

“Our purchase of the IQAir HealthPro Plus proved to be worth every penny, with immediate benefits for our 7 year old daughter’s asthma and allergy symptoms. Her constant runny nose was gone within a day of setting up this air purifier, and her dry and itchy skin has cleared up significantly. Needless to say, we are very pleased with how effectively the IQAir works. Aside from the health benefits, the emotional and psychological well-being of our family of four has been maintained! You see, we love our two dogs, a Shih-Tzu, and a Maltese, which are key sources of allergens, along with the pollen and snow mould that our dogs track into the house. Faced with the thought of finding another home for our dogs was emotionally crushing to our family. However, with the IQAir HealthPro Plus, these sources of allergens no longer present a problem. My daughter now breathes freely and unlaboured during the day and in her sleep, and our two dogs, Buddy and Snoopy remain a part of our happy family. I highly recommend this product to any family faced with similar health challenges.”
R. Fong, Calgary, AB

“I absolutely love my two Blueair 203 HEPASilent air purifiers. I have had so many different kinds of air cleaners over the years, and in the end, they were all garbage. The fact that the Blueair filters need to be changed so infrequently is such a convenience and the machines are so quiet, I don’t even know they’re running. I have a new puppy and my allergies need to be kept in control; I know my allergist would be impressed. Thank you from one happy customer.”
H. Stepien, 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 think my husband is a convert since we got the Blueair 603 HEPASilent air purifier. A few days ago he said he can’t believe he doesn’t wake up coughing anymore (he has all his life). It was all I could do not to say "I told you so”
Bonnie W, Ottawa, ON

“I thought that I would have to give up on the idea of oil painting in an open concept city apartment until you recommended the AllerAir 6000 DX Vocarb. The heavy-duty carbon bed does an incredible job of removing the smell of turpentine and other oil painting media. I wear a mask and turn the AllerAir unit on high when I paint, but by the time I finish cleaning up I can take off the mask. I then leave the air purifier on the lowest setting, and after a few hours the toxic vapours are practically gone, and later I can sleep in the same space without worrying about my health or getting headaches. Your customer service is also top notch. I could have ordered this from a local rep but your knowledge, detailed correspondence and thoughtful recommendation impressed me right from the start. Thank you also for your prompt responses to my questions and concerns when I needed help getting acquainted with the unit. I would not hesitate to recommend AllerAir air purifiers to anyone and to send them your way to place an order.”
Wendy Y, Vancouver, BC

“Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for answering all of my questions and for providing me with this incredible air purifier. I am schlepping my IQAir HealthPro Plus upstairs and downstairs, and everyone in the family agrees it produces outstanding air. While it hasn’t reduced my pet allergy symptoms to zero yet, today is a non-medication day and for me that is a BIG win. In addition, the white noise on setting 1 is very pleasant to sleep with. I will be calling you next week to discuss ordering a second unit.”
P. Greenberg, Toronto, ON

“The three AllerAir 5000 DX Vocarb UV air purifiers that we purchased from you are working beyond expectations, so we would like to order two more of the same. Our folks here are quite happy with how effective this unit is, as it really cuts down on the offensive chlorine smell from the wipes they are using.”
Major Ontario Hospital

“Just a quick note to let you know that the Blueair 503 SmokeStop air purifier that I purchased from you is helping considerably. I’m still running for exercise and no asthma to speak of yet. I’m still taking a puffer, but on a reduced basis, just to be on the safe side. So very happy so far and recommending the Blueair units, and your company, to others out here in the Comox Valley where there is a significant winter air quality problem.”
D. Powsey, Cumberland, BC

“The Austin Air HealthMate HM-400 was an excellent choice for us and we are really pleased with our purchase. For years, my husband has woken up with blocked sinuses and nasal congestion. We use the air cleaner every night in our bedroom and he has noticed a huge improvement in his breathing. We keep it on the low setting and are now accustomed to the white noise so that it doesn’t bother us when sleeping. I also noticed that dust levels in the room are lower. I especially like the fact that we don’t have to worry about changing the filter frequently.”
N. Clarke, Markham, ON

“OMG! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Years have been added to my life!!! I’m telling others about my IQAir HealthPro Plus. I wish everyone could enjoy this great product.”
E. Salm, Kinmount, ON

“After using the Blueair 403 HEPASilent in our bedroom, I started using it in the main living room because most of the allergens are there (our cats are always in the living room). It seems to have made a difference as my wife now has fewer problems, and I’ve also noticed a lot less dust suspended in the air. I was a bit concerned as we have a large living room with a high ceiling, but it seems to be handling the area well.”
M. Deslauriers, Montreal, QC

“I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how thrilled I am with my AllerAir 6000 DXS UV air purifier! It really has improved my quality of life. I recently moved into an apartment, and three of my neighbors smoke a variety of things. I move the AllerAir 6000 DXS UV to the point of entry, i.e., the door into my suite, and it removes any traces of the smoke in no time at all! We also had smoke from stubble burning recently, so I closed the windows and turned on the air purifier, and suddenly there were no longer any bothersome irritants! The other source of my constant respiratory illnesses since I moved in was the wall air conditioner. I sealed this off and purchased a portable AC unit instead. So now all of the asthma like symptoms have gone. I am so thankful that I came across your site on the computer! I just wanted to let you know how great the AllerAir 6000 DXS UV air purifier works – it is worth every penny!”
H. Cole, Winnipeg, MB

“I have been conscious about my family’s health, particularly my son who is very susceptible to allergies and respiratory concerns. I have always wanted to invest in a decent air purifier (not the commercialized ones we usually find on the market), and have searched the net to compare prices and study reviews. I ordered an Austin Air HealthMate Plus air purifier from your company and I have really felt the difference. It felt like entering an air conditioned room during the warmest part of summer. I felt refreshed. According to my son, his habit of blowing his nose, coughing and sneezing has also decreased. We were also surprised that the unit actually removed the odour produced by frying fish in 5-10 minutes. I am ordering a second unit this week because it really works.”
R. Suva, Winnipeg, MB

“I purchased an IQAir HealthPro Plus from you last month, and would like to buy another one. It seems to keep the dander, etc. down in the house. At least that’s what my allergic cat friends are saying!”
Dr. P. Voorneveld, Etobicoke, ON

“My two Blueair 203 HEPASilent air purifiers are super. One stays permanently in my painting studio, where even though I no longer use chemical thinners, there are still plenty of other unknown pollutants in the air, and the other stays in my office. Remarkably, when I’m in the rooms with the Blueair 203s, I don’t need to use my allergy medications! I’m very happy with these air purifiers and have recommended them to several people. I also appreciate the extra services that you offer, e.g., the filter replacement reminder program and warranty processing.”
M. Becker, Vancouver, BC

“I have used the AllerAir 5000 Vocarb air purifier for about 2 years now. As a then-smoker, the air purifier saved my place from smelling of smoke, and once I quit, it kept the air wonderfully fresh and clean. On top of that, I am a visual artist who works with acrylics and oil, but in particular, was interested in the AllerAir 5000 Vocarb because I use an airbrush, which turns paint into ultra-fine particles that is great for smooth application, but bad for your lungs. Needless to say, I researched quite a bit before settling upon this particular brand and model. Am I satisfied? Indeed I am. The noise level is low, the design is smooth, and the quality is impressive. As a father working out of his home, I am completely confident in recommending this product to anyone wishing to have clean air in their living or working space. On top of that, I will of my own volition recommend AllerAir and Robert, who has been kind, forthcoming, fair and very helpful throughout the process until this very day!”
B. Broendsted, Montreal, QC

“The Blueair 603 GO SmokeStop air purifier I purchased from you works wonderfully. It is a MUST for keeping down dust and smoke particles in my home during the winter season, and as an added bonus, during spring and summer allergy season.”
J. Smith, Magog, QC

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

“I am extremely pleased with my IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier as I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my allergies (sneezing and sinus congestion) and have gone months without having to take any medication for them. When I enter my apartment, the freshness of the air is immediately obvious. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone who would like to improve the quality of the air in their home.”
B. Mullins, Montreal, QC

“Since we installed the Epurair MA-1C on our furnace, I have noticed a greatly reduced reliance on my allergy medications and a much easier house to clean (which is a serious plus in my books).”
C. Deas, Ottawa, ON

“Just received the Blueair 650E GO SmokeStop air purifier. Did a very scientific test in my office – I smoked 2 cigars. GREAT FILTER!!! Thank you so much for the advice.”
M. Marchione, Bolton, ON

“When we decided to improve the air quality in our day care center, we purchased an AllerAir air purifier on the advice of personnel at the Lung Association. There was such a major improvement in the health of the care giving personnel as well as the children at the center, the directors decided to buy 8 more units.”
Suzanne Latreille, Seattle, WA

“The Austin Air Pet Machine is the best air purifier I have used in my bird room, which contains 60 birds. Both my wife and I are allergic to bird dander, but we don’t want to give up the hobby we love so much. Thanks to the Austin Air Pet Machine, we don’t have to! There is no longer any dust in the room. Also, when our birds are breeding there are usually more odours from the nest boxes, but with the Austin Air Pet Machine running, you smell nothing but clean air.”
Steve Elich Aviaries (breeder of Cockatiels, Love Birds and Parrotlets), Brampton, ON

“Wow what a difference this Blueair 450E air purifier has made in our home; my regret is that I never found out sooner how truly efficient it is. I don’t have asthma, but I am allergic to dust mites and other things, and my nose was always congested. I started to look into air purifiers on tv and on the internet. It seemed the more I read, the more confused I got. I decided to phone you and boy I’m glad I did. After asking me a few questions, you were able to guide me to one that serves my needs perfectly. I am so glad to say that after the first night, I was not congested and was able to sleep through the night. Thank you so very much Mr. Mayr.”
B. Ball, Collingwood, ON

“After having our IQAir HealthPro Plus for a bit now, I can honestly say that we are very satisfied with our purchase. We were driven to purchase one when my wife had an allergy attack once the cold weather necessitated that the heating system run. Even though the unit is in our bedroom, it sucks up odours from the whole house, including cooking. There was a very noticeable decrease in dust particles, and our family felt much better and my wife had increased energy. We had a book given to us from a cigarette smoker, so it reeked of tobacco smoke, and placed it on the purifier for a day and to our astonishment there was no more detectable smoke odour! I purchased a new foam pillow which smelt of gases from manufacturing, so onto the purifier it went with the same excellent results as with the book. I am not fond of the fumes when my daughter does her nail polish, so now she applies it right in front of the IQAir. Not only does she not inhale the fumes, but no one else has to either. I’m amazed. Our house is also built on bedrock, so I feel that there is an increased chance of natural radon gas exposure from the earth and soil. I feel comfortable knowing that such an effective machine is working to keep our house air “pure.” Thank you for such a fine product.”
The Blom’s, North Bay, ON

“Wow. I put my new Austin Air Bedroom Machine in a 9 × 12 bedroom, and nothing can escape it. On the high setting, I got instant pharmaceutical grade air in a flash, and I can run it on high and still sleep fine. I’ve read all kinds of reviews by people complaining about loudness, but I’ve learned to ignore these when deciding on a machine. If you’re a city person in a bustling area, don’t even bother worrying about decibel levels when choosing an air purifier because you are immune to the constant background noise you live with every day, and an air purifier turned up a bit will not even register. I love the Austin Air Bedroom Machine in my small room, and the 360° intake makes it perfect for cramped quarters. I don’t have air conditioning, so I’ve been shopping for a good fan to get me through those handful of really hot nights. Now I don’t need one. In my small room, on high, the Austin Air Bedroom Machine is so powerful that the exhaust blows upward from the louvered manifold, bounces off the ceiling and swirls around, keeping me nice and comfortable. This is the perfect air purifier for my needs.”
P. Zimmer, Toronto, ON

“I recommended your Blueair air purifiers to my son. He purchased a Blueair 450E GO SmokeStop unit and is 110% satisfied with his purchase. There was a bad smell in the apartment and it disappeared within 24 hours. Thank you for your excellent products and service.”
G. Arbour, Mont-Saint-Hilaire, QC

“The two AllerAir AirMedic Plus Vocarb units that I purchased from you are working wonderfully. I’ve found that they have made a huge difference in my home and to my general well-being, especially the one in the basement where I work. What a difference. It has been the first winter in years that I haven’t been sick from working there all day!”
J. Bauer, Montreal, QC

“When researching for an air purifier, I was looking for something that was very quiet and offered minute filtration. I chose the Blueair brand because it was well designed. Purchasing something within Canada was also important to me. Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers made it easy to purchase our Blueair 203 GO SmokeStop air purifier. We received excellent knowledge through quick email and telephone responses. With the expert knowledge, we chose the Blueair 203 model to filter out particulates and any possibility of moulds. We now use the unit in our bedroom. The unit is very quiet on the low setting, but we turn it off when we go to sleep. During the day when the room is unused we run the Blueair at a higher speed and go to bed with refreshed clean air.”
K. Ghiglione, Toronto, ON

“We had some staining done while we were away and when we returned, the fellow who did the staining – an individual with 30+ years of experience – wanted to know about our IQAir MultiGas GC. He was shocked from one day to the next how much the smell had diminished.”
T. Daw, Peterborough, ON

“Our neighbour smokes and my wife has asthma, so she has trouble sleeping at night on a consistent basis. I searched online and discovered Austin Air. We were suspicious at first, but after using our newly purchased Austin Air HealthMate Plus for a week, my wife’s sleep quality has dramatically improved, so we are getting a junior version for our first baby that is coming soon. Modern Alchemy’s owner, Robert, is also a knowledgeable and professional person. I called him with a few questions and he gave me honest feedback for my needs. I also like how he keeps you in the loop in the purchase process. We definitely recommend Austin Air and Modern Alchemy to anyone who wants to live in a healthier environment.”
H. Chen, Oakville, ON

“I purchased an AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 DS air purifier from you several months ago to handle cigarette smoke issues. Just wanted to tell you that I love it, I am a heavy smoker and it really is helping! I pretty much just leave it on high setting all the time – it really helps clear the air and the smoke no longer lingers.”
W. Reitano, Kars ON

“We have now been using the Blueair 403 HEPASilent for a week and both my wife and I are extremely satisfied. The unit was for our bedroom, and in one night we immediately noticed a difference in the air quality. While the main reason for getting the unit was for my cat allergies, we are both sleeping better. I am a light sleeper, but the unit noise at the two lowest levels does not even register with me during the night. Also, thank you for the prompt delivery. I definitely will recommend a Blueair unit and your company to anyone who is thinking of purchasing an air purifier.”
D. Crabb, Kingston, ON

“I have been using my AllerAir AirMedic Plus MCS D air purifier for well over a week now. I must say that I simply love it!! I believe it is helping my problem a great deal. It arrived just at the beginning of “allergy season” for me, so it was very timely indeed!”
J. Ross-Kerr, Edmonton, AB

“I just wanted to let you know how much of a difference the IQAir HealthPro Plus has made to my sleeping and allergies. Ever since I bought the machine, it has been running non-stop on level 1 in my bedroom, and I haven’t had any difficulties breathing like I did before.”
G. Roy, Gatineau, QC

“We have been using the Austin Air HealthMate Plus air purifier since February 2014, it has been a great unit. We have a wood stove and before we got the Austin, I was dusting daily, but since we started it up I have gone days, if not weeks, without the need to dust. The HealthMate Plus is a bit noisy, but we just turn off the air purifier if we need silence and make sure it is running at all other times. I am an allergy sufferer, and this year the pollen is especially bad. We put the HealthMate Plus in the bedroom for a day and I was amazed at how well the air cleared. However it is too noisy for us to keep in the bedroom so we have ordered a Blueair unit and will let you know how it works. I would definitely recommend Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers, Robert was very helpful and their service has been excellent.”
K. Olson, Beasley, BC

“I’m glad to report that I’m very satisfied with my purchase of the Blueair 203 GO SmokeStop air purifier, and also with your service. So much so that I’ve recommended it to my company for our office space. I have less dusting to do at home since I’ve been using the air purifier, and am thinking of purchasing another one in the near future.”
A. De Angelis, LaSalle, QC

“My IQAir MultiGas GC is making my life dreamy. Quite literally. I take the machine into my bedroom when I go to sleep and keep my bedroom door shut. No more stuffy nose in the morning or itchy watery eyes. I’ve been dreaming in my sleep all week, and sleeping so much better. Amazing machine!”
S. Billard, Ottawa, ON

“I love my AllerAir AirTube 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

“The Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 is working great! I’m really surprised at the power the fan has to get the air circulating around the room! That’s quite reassuring since many purifiers don’t seem to have enough power/suction to actually draw air into them never mind push it out. I definitely noticed a difference in my breathing the very first night. In the morning my nose wasn’t plugged as it usually would be nor were my lungs kind of full feeling. I definitely notice that “fresh” smell in the room like the windows have been open. Thanks for your prompt and courteous service as that seems to be lacking in so many businesses nowadays!”
J. Batonyi, Calgary, AB

“We absolutely love our new Blueair 450E GO SmokeStop air purifier. It is awesome – so quiet and efficient.”
B. O’Grady, Brockville, ON

“We received our Blueair Central Whole-House Filter System, and it’s awesome. This year our son Noah had no adverse reaction when our furnace went on (last year was horrible!). This system, combined with the Austin Air HealthMate HM-400 we purchased from you earlier in the year, has made a huge improvement to our indoor air quality – thank you!! Once again, your service was exceptional – it makes us happy to support the amazing work you do.”
A. Young, Almonte, ON

“I am delighted with the AllerAir MCS and Vocarb air purifiers. I acquired MCS from an overexposure to formaldehyde so I must be careful to avoid the off gassing of common products in addition to typical airborne particulate matter. The machines have provided me with a clear improvement in my quality of life. I have tried other purifiers, but I have found the AllerAir products to be superior. The sealed, varnish-free motors and non-toxic components make a great difference. My little daughter has also benefited from AllerAir products. Her chronic respiratory and ENT [ear, nose and throat] problems have decreased in both frequency and severity.”
Suzanne Greco

“The IQAir HealthPro air purifier has made a big difference in our home. Six months ago, my girlfriend moved in with her two cats, and although we do not have any allergies, many of our family and friends cannot be in a home for more than 20 minutes where cats are present. We decided to invest in an IQAir because it alone filters down to 0.003 microns – small enough to remove cat allergens from the air. The extra expense was certainly worth it. The air in our home is so fresh and clean that we notice it every time we come home from other houses without air purifiers. Our friends with allergies are able to spend time even in the rooms most lived in by the cats. We also keep one room “cat-free” where guests with allergies have spent the night with the IQAir purifier and not noticed a single allergy symptom. Even though we don’t have allergies ourselves, it is so worth it to have cleaner, fresher and healthier air in our home. It’s great and I would recommend it to everyone.”
C. Butts, Fredericton, NB

“We just purchased three Blueair 650E air purifiers from you and have been using them for about 10 days now. We’ve noticed that our sinuses are clearer, and it sure keeps the odors down as it kicks in when we’re cooking, nice!”
D. Dray, Surrey, BC

“I am a divorced Dad with three asthmatic children. Dust and pet allergies made my kids miserable when they came to stay at my place. I thought an air purifier might help and after much reading on the Internet, I chose an AllerAir model 6000 Exec. After only one night with the unit in his room, my youngest son woke up without the usual complaints. He no longer needs to use his asthma inhaler when he visits either!”
Evan Berljawsky

“I must say that I’m impressed with the Austin Air Allergy Machine I purchased two weeks ago. It has made a significant difference in the quality of air in my home, especially in this climate when the house is closed up for the better part of the year. After experiencing this unit and the wonderful job it is doing, I thought that a Baby’s Breath would be a great gift for my daughter who is expecting in April, my first grandchild.”
J. Spooner, Edmonton, AB

“I am very happy with the AllerAir AirMedic Pro 5 HDS air purifier that I purchased from you. Thanks for carrying great products that I can rely on.”
Graham M., Ottawa, ON

“Being a moderate asthmatic, all traces of pet dander provoke a very unpleasant reaction in my breathing. When I begin to wheeze through my airways, it is quite detrimental to my daily productivity, and sleeping, exercising and studying become difficult. After we renovated our new home with hardwood flooring and had the air ducts cleaned, I found that I was still unable to breathe clearly. We called Robert at Modern Alchemy, and he gave us a thorough and helpful education on how air purifiers could help our situation. A Blueair 503 HEPASilent was selected for the basement, and two IQAir HealthPro Plus units were placed in the rest of the house. Within an hour, the air was noticeably easier to breath and smelled better. The very first night I noticed I could sleep through the entire night without waking up. That was amazing! A feat I have not experienced for years. The Blueair 503, which was placed in the basement where I exercise, dramatically increased my endurance while working out."
Chris C, Ottawa, ON

“I’m very impressed with the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier. I used to wake up every morning with highly congested sinuses, and it would take hours before I could breathe normally. I didn’t know whether an air purifier would help my congestion or not, so I was initially very reluctant to spend the money on one. After much research I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the IQAir Healthpro Plus. The second morning after setting up my new air purifier, there was a very notable difference. The IQAir has now been running for over a month now and I have had no sinus congestion at all. The most impressive part is that we keep the air purifier in the living room next to the furnace air intake, and it seems to help the entire house. I highly recommend this product.”
W. Lynch, Fort McMurray, AB

“I recently purchased an AllerAir AirMedic Plus MCS D air purifier from you and have it running all the time at our new office. With the new office space, the air flow is not as good as it could be as there is still minor construction. However, I can tell the difference when I am at my desk with the AllerAir MCS unit nearby. When my sensitivities are worse and are triggered by different things in the air, the addition of the Protection Plus Pollution Nasal Filters I purchased from you helps to minimize symptoms. Thank you for answering all of my questions (there were many) and helping me with deciding on the right products. It has made living and working with MCS more manageable.”
Anonymous, Toronto, ON

“We love our nine cats, but despite diligent cleaning, the house sometimes smelled a bit too much like a pet store or an animal refuge. After extensive research, we decided to purchase an Austin Air Pet Machine, which we placed in our finished basement. Within days the basement smelt clean and fresh. We were so pleased that we ordered a second Austin Air Pet Machine to put upstairs. Friends noticed the difference immediately, and visitors who come to our house for the first time are astonished to learn that we have nine feline residents.”
Patricia and Henry Srebrnik, Charlottetown, PEI

“My wife and I have been looking for an air purifier on and off for the last 2 years and I feel that I have read and read and read until the point of exhaustion that I gave up on the search… Finally after feeling disappointed and complacent, I decided to pick back up the search. I am so glad that we purchased the IQAir HealthPro Plus, it is such a great machine. The air quality in the basement we live in is not too bad, however, I can tell the difference when the machine is on. The air feels lighter somehow. The main reason we wanted the air purifier is for general health reasons, keeping bacteria count down, as well as filtering out cooking smells from the family that lives above us. I am a geek when it comes to technical data and I love that the HealthPro Plus is Swiss-made and how quiet the operation is. We keep it on level 1 when we sleep and the swooshing sound that comes out is very relaxing and does not disturb our sleep. One thing I love about the air purifier is how many different particulates the machine filters. The owner Robert is very nice and personable, I am happy that Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers has a personality behind its machines. I absolutely love making improvements to our health and seeing these comforts translate into great future decisions. Very happy indeed about making this purchase, exceptional and expensive, but worth every penny!!! ”
C Kyrris, Thornhill, ON

“So far my Blueair 403 HEPASilent air purifier is working really well. I am almost off all allergy medication for my 2 kittens, and hopefully with some diligent cleaning, I can soon be completely medication free! It’s made a huge difference, and as promised, it is very quiet.”
K. Pettit, London, ON

“We have affectionately named our Austin Air Allergy Machine “Austin.” He (Austin) has really helped us. To make a very long story short, our apartment has a mold problem, and we are not able to move until later in the year. Austin has helped us to continue functioning in the interim. As an added bonus, my mild spring allergies were almost non-existent this spring. We are very happy with our purchase!”
NSL, Swift Current, SK

“I’ve had the IQAir MultiGas GC you sold me for well over a year now, and I thought you’d like to know that my young nephew, who is allergic to almost anything that blooms in the summer, is symptom-free when in the same room as the MultiGas. For that matter, so am I.”
David, Navan, Ontario

“When our organization opened our office in the old GE plant in Barrie, the air quality in the building was very poor. There was little air circulation and our staff was experiencing headaches, fatigue and various other discomforts related to the air quality. After examining a few different options, we tried an AllerAir air purifier. After having the unit in the office for a couple of weeks we definitely noticed a difference in the air quality. The staff indicated that the headaches and the fatigue that they were experiencing were greatly reduced.”
Kathy Willis – Executive Director

“We are very happy with our Blueair 650E air purifier. Since we began using it, we have noticed an increase in air quality. I am an allergy sufferer and since we started using the air purifier, my symptoms have decreased. We would recommend the Blueair 650E to any potential customer.”
D. Patey, St. Anthony, NL

“I’m so happy that I bought the Austin Air HealthMate HM 400 from you; I can highly recommend the product as well as Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers. Delivery was exactly as promised, and your customer service by telephone was excellent and so friendly. Within 24 hours we noticed the difference in the air. There are no more odours, we breathe deeper and better, plus the dust build-up around the apartment is pretty well non-existent now. The only little drawback I find is that the clean air the fan blows out is cool, which is great for the summer, but not in the winter when you are trying to keep your house warm. In conclusion, the HealthMate does an excellent job at keeping the air clean.”

“I’m absolutely loving the IQAir HealthPro Compact that I purchased from you last year. My sleep has improved, and I use my asthma inhalers significantly less often since it has been running in my bedroom.”
M. Christie, Thunder Bay, ON

“My wife and I enjoy the whisper quiet operation. Her trips to the hospital for sinus headaches have decreased dramatically since using the Austin Air HealthMate in our home.”
Dr. R.Y., Chandler, AZ

“We absolutely love the AllerAir 5000 Vocarb! I am ordering yet another one [our 4th unit], this time for my son who also has MCS. Thanks so much!”
B. Pentland, Fairview, AB

“It has been about 6 weeks since I received the two IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifiers from your company. I want to tell you what a difference they have made to the air quality in our basement. The odors and mustiness are completely gone – a big difference was noticed in just 24 hours. The IQAir units are now running on a reduced speed 24 hours per day and the air smells clean all the time. We also used them to clear out the odours left from window and door sealants after having several of these replaced shortly after the air purifiers arrived. Where asthma and respiratory difficulties were a daily problem for me, I am free of both problems now unless I get exposed to triggers outside of the house. My lungs thank you! The delivery was on time and the units wonderfully easy to set up and get running, which was very helpful. I expected a complicated setup, but was pleased to find they needed little more than being plugged in and turned on. I will recommend both these cleaners and your company to anyone looking to improve the air quality in their homes or business areas.”
K Vestre, Drayton Valley, AB

“I bought an AllerAir AirTube 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 air purifier makes my studio just about scent-free! It’s made my working life much better.”
D. O’Heare, Ottawa, ON

“Our two Austin Air HealthMate Plus air purifiers work great at removing the toxic odours in our house, and my husband doesn’t have such a stuffed nose anymore!”
A. Reichert, Eatonia, SK

“Everyone, our rabbits included, is enjoying our Blueair 503 HEPASilent air purifier. It does a good job and it DOES make a difference!”
M. Rhynes, 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

“I love my Blueair 203 GO SmokeStop and 403 GO SmokeStop air purifiers! I don’t know what I did without them!”
P. O’Leary, Ottawa, ON

“I highly recommend this air purifier [the IQAir HealthPro Plus]. There’s no doubt that it is working hard in this open [office] space, as we all notice a huge difference in air quality whenever we have to go to another floor. We have the cleanest air in the entire building! I let it run on the 2nd level and if I suddenly smell a fragrance or other chemical, I turn it up a few levels. The reason I’m contacting you is to purchase a second IQAir unit for our office.”
M. Brunet, Ottawa, ON

“I wanted to let you know that I am more than satisfied with my AllerAir air purifier. I had gone to Reno Depot to replace my old purifier, and the service worker asked me why I would buy a purifier that produced ozone. I asked if they sold any that did not, and was told no. I went home and starting researching purifiers, and discovered that ozone is a lung irritant! Then came the task of finding a high quality non-ozone emitting machine, and I settled on yours – and I am happy that I did. Waking up to the freshest air is a gift, your purifier is great. I have been using the purifier since August, and I love it. Thank you so much.”
G. Keeney

“We own a bird, and he’s a part of our family, but we have always been concerned about feather dust and the diseases it is known to carry. After buying The Austin Air Pet Machine for our home, we feel more confident that our family’s health is not being compromised. An unexpected benefit is the amount of dust in the room is greatly reduced and it always smells fresh and clean.”
S. Coleman, FL

“I am delighted with my Blueair 503 HEPASilent. Within hours of turning it on, the dust in my apartment was visibly less and the air so much fresher. I wish I had gotten one sooner.”
Timothy O, Toronto, ON

“I’ve been on allergy medication for years and nothing was working. My doctor recommended AllerAir, so I purchased an air purifier for my office. I used to start coughing every afternoon and I always had a tissue for my runny nose and cough drops in my desk. With the AllerAir unit I no longer have any of those symptoms. I purchased two for my home and now wake up with a clear nose. My husband says that I don’t snore as loudly either. We purchased one for my mother-in-law who has suffered from asthma for years and guess what? Her asthma is gone! AllerAir has definitely improved our quality of life!”
Debra Hernandez

“After doing some research and discussing our issues with Robert, we decided to purchase an IQAir HealthPro Plus for our bedroom. We liked it so much that, less than a month later, we purchased a second unit for the family room/kitchen area. When Robert came to deliver the second unit he performed an air analysis and we noticed that the particles in our entire home had dropped significantly. If you are considering purchasing an air purifier, I strongly recommend that you give Robert a call. With his professionalism and knowledge, he will suggest the best unit for you.”
M. Levac, Orleans, ON

“I absolutely love the Austin Air HealthMate HM-400 I ordered from you. Now my apartment always smells fresh, and I only have to dust once every two weeks.”
B. DeLong, Montreal, QC

“I hardly ever give reviews, but Modern Alchemy certainly deserves one. The Blueair 403 HEPASilent air cleaner that you supplied is as quiet and efficient as claimed and your no-quibble service when I raised a small problem was outstanding. I have no connection with Modern Alchemy, other than as a satisfied customer.”
T. Whieldon, Balderson, ON

“The Austin Air Pet Machine and HealthMate Plus Jr. arrived today…safe & sound, and well packaged. I turned them on immediately after reading the manuals. The air output in the Pet Machine is a WOW factor! Before I bought your machines I tried the Hunter Quiet Flow – guess what? There was no flow!!! I even tried it in my 4×8 bathroom for 2 hours on ‘hi’ and there was absolutely no difference. Brought it back to Sears. I will highly recommend you for the machines as well as for your informative and super friendly service. I never want to open the windows again. I think everyone in polluted cities should own theses!!! A huge thank you.”

FOLLOW-UP COMMENTS: “I have been sleeping so soundly since I’ve received my 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! Thanks very much.”
M. Renaud, Windsor, ON

“We recently purchased a solvent printer. The fumes were driving us crazy. We have four-inch and eight-inch exhaust systems. We bought [an AllerAir] unit and it’s like magic. It is currently running on the lowest speed with our exhaust fans off and it does a beautiful job. I would not have believed it.”
Mike Morrow

“My husband and I purchased an IQAir HealthPro Plus from you and we absolutely love it! It really has helped me with my allergies (two dogs in our condo and a baby on the way). Thanks so much.”
A. Lussier, Ottawa, ON

“I received my Blueair 203 HEPASilent today, and am absolutely delighted with the quality and the efficiency. After only having turned it on a few hours ago, the air quality in my office is very pleasant. I have been searching for the perfect air purification system for several years and am certain that I made the right choice. My computer equipment is very important to me and maintenance of my equipment is paramount. My new Blueair will ensure that all computer components remain clean, cool and functioning topnotch at all times. Thank you so much for your assistance with the purchase. I look forward to doing business with your company in the future.”
L. Denomey, Belle River, ON

“I absolutely love the Austin Air HealthMate Plus air purifier I purchased from you. I have severe Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and have had to return a few air purifiers in the past due to this. When used in my bedroom, the Austin Air HealthMate Plus helps me to sleep without being stuffed up during the night and when I wake up in the mornings. Unfortunately, I found the unit didn’t do as well in my kitchen, living room and dining room area, because of the recent painting and the size of the area. I would totally recommend your company and the Austin Air HealthMate Plus. I felt you were very knowledgeable, understanding and explained your products really well, and also had solid advice regarding which units you felt would be best suited for me.”
C. Friesen, Steinbach, MB

“We are very happy with the Austin Air HealthMate air purifier we purchased from you. My partner really sees the difference. One night we turned the unit off and she didn’t sleep very well and was sneezing a lot. We turned the air purifier back on the next day and everything was perfect!!!”
C. L., Buffalo, NY

“Just wanted to say what a difference the two IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifiers have made for us. The odour and stale air are completely gone.”
K. Vestre, Drayton Valley, AB

“I am reaping the benefits of the Austin Air Pet Machine I purchased from you already. Within only a few minutes of running it, I was breathing better, and the smell of 2 female pet rats caged in the living room was gone.”
K. Keith, Kemptville, ON

“The two [AllerAir] air purifiers I bought…were a lifesaver. I had just moved into a place that had been freshly painted and re-carpeted, and the off-gassing was destroying my respiratory system and health. When the units arrived, I cranked them up, and I remember going to bed that night breathing the freshest air you can imagine, right in my freshly painted/carpeted bedroom. It’s a great product.”
G.B., Laurel, MD

“I have found the Blueair 203 HEPASilent to be very quiet and its narrow profile fits well into my home. I have had mine for about 2 months, and I just ordered another unit (a Blueair 503 HEPASilent) for our main living space.”
A. Low, Toronto, ON

“I have had my Austin Air Allergy Machine for a week now, and there has been a considerable improvement in the air quality in our home. Love it.”
D. Richardson, Fort Macleod, AB

“I replaced the PreMax Pre-Filter in my IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier tonight and could not believe the amount of stuff captured by the old filter. What a machine! No wonder we breathe so easily.”
P. Greenberg, Toronto, ON

“Our son had been sick for 4 months and on a Nebulizer twice a day when we decided to get an air purifier. We did a lot of research and found AllerAir to have the best product and best prices. After putting the 5000 Exec UV in our son’s room, he has made a 100% recovery! He’s off all medications and is not wheezing at all anymore. He sleeps through the night now, he is a much happier kid, and that makes us much happier parents!”
Heather, Jason & Colby Barth

“The Austin Air Pet Machine I purchased from you works quite well in getting rid of my Shar Pei’s smell. I keep it running throughout the day, and the house feels cleaner and smells fresher. I noticed the dog smell when I turned it off for one day, so it’s doing its job.”
B. Chan, Markham, ON

“The Austin Air Allergy Machine Jr. that I received as a baby shower gift is awesome. It’s hard to describe, but now the upstairs air feels like fresh outside air. It is wonderful.”
L. Dukart, Edmonton, AB

“Our family purchased three Blueair 650E GO SmokeStop air purifiers and I just wanted to let you know that we are very happy and satisfied.”
D. Dray, Surrey, BC.

“We are really enjoying our Austin Air HealthMate Plus air purifier, and have noticed a real difference in our allergies.”
E. Smyth, Grande Prairie, AB

“I’m so pleased with the AllerAir Model AirMedic Plus MCS unit. I love the look, and I could tell the difference in just one night. I have asthma and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I think that this is the best unit we have purchased.”
M.T. and K.T., Syracuse, NY

“I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my recent purchase from you. I’ve been using my IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier for nearly three weeks now and can certainly attest to a vast improvement in my breathing comfort. Although I’ve always been fussy about maintaining a clean environment, particularly in the bedroom, I would still wake up several times each night all stuffed up and unable to breathe thru my nose. This pattern has gone on for many years. The change for me after using the IQAir has truly been dramatic! I’m finding I’m so comfortable thru the night and therefore more rested and refreshed each a.m. My husband (who doesn’t suffer with any particular sensitivities) seems to feel more rested as well – perhaps in part because I’m sleeping so much better. I feel this has been a great purchase for me and would recommend that anyone suffering from environmental sensitivities or other breathing ailments, give it some serious thought”
J. Hutchinson, Newmarket, ON

“We have to admit that the Austin Air Healthmate Jr. is one excellent little machine with a lot of do-good power behind it. It really does what it promises to do. The air purifier keeps dust from accumulating inside our home, big time! We don’t need to dust the furniture nearly as often as we used to, which more importantly means that there is not nearly as much overall dust / pollen floating in the air for us to breathe in. With the air purifier constantly maintaining optimum air quality levels in our home now, we are no longer accumulating layers of irritants that go straight to our sinus cavities with every breath we take. If everyone had an Austin Air HealthMate system running and purifying the air in their home or place of business, we allergy sufferers could avoid even those temporary reactions, however, once we return home, the pollen-related symptoms quickly abate. Happy to say there have been no sleepless nights this year; the air quality in our home has never been better. Thank you Austin Air! You put the Sweet in Home Sweet Home."
Demitra M. N., Montreal, QC

“We purchased a Blueair 603 GO SmokeStop air purifier for our cottage and have it running near the wood stove – It works beautifully!"
Andrew and Kit, Lachine, QC

“Thank you for the email reminder to order a new filter for my Austin Air HealthMate, I can’t believe that it has already been 5 years! I’m still extremely happy with my air purifier and I use it almost every day. It is terrific for a house with two dogs as it helps keep the air fresher and reduce the dander from them. Plus it helps with air quality in general as it makes such a difference on the days I have it running vs. the days I don’t. I still recommend this air purifier as much as I did when I first got it!”
J. Batonyi, Calgary, 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

“My Blueair 203 HEPASilent is still working great (since October 2012 with continuous use). My office space and computer equipment are dust free! And thanks so much for your outstanding Filter Replacement Program, I just ordered a twin-pack”
L. Denomey, Belle River, ON

“We are very pleased with our IQAir HealthPro Plus air filter system. We live beside a busy road in Toronto and appreciate the fresh air in our apartment!”
P. Pasternak, Toronto, ON

“I wish to convey to you how very much I like [the AllerAir] air cleaner! It runs constantly in my bedroom, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, on the highest speed. This area is my sanctuary from all the pollutants in the air. In the year that I have had my AllerAir cleaner, it has made every overnight trip with me. I might leave home overnight without my Visa or MasterCard, but I won’t leave home without my air cleaner.”
Lee H. Whitaker

“I’ve enjoyed our Austin Air Bedroom Machine very much, and that’s why I’m buying another unit for my new house that has one more room.”
S. Chou, Surrey, BC

“We bought a Blueair 603 air purifier from you last summer because my wife has asthma and is also allergic to numerous airborne substances. She really noticed a difference after the first day we had the air purifier in our home. During the daytime we keep the Blueair in our living room where it does a good job of clearing the air in the main living area. We move it into our bedroom in the evening and by the time we go to bed, that room is cleared. The Blueair 603 is quite easy to move around because it is on casters. During the daytime we run the fan at full speed and at night we turn it down a notch and the sound is almost inaudible. The Blueair 603 isn’t cheap, but it is built very well and it is the first air cleaning unit that really works for my wife, so it has been an excellent investment.”
G. Friedel, Edmonton, AB.

“I am very impressed with the Austin Air Healthmate Plus unit you sold me. It does a great job, and I love it very, very much.”
N. Occhionero, Montreal, QC

“I didn’t realize how much my IQAir HealthPro air purifier was doing for me until the filters expired. I (and my sinuses) am very much looking forward to the delivery of the new filters!”
S. Bacadea, Whitehorse, YT

“I would like to give some feedback on the Blueair 303 SmokeStop air purifiers that I purchased from you. The air purifiers are excellent and exactly as described, i.e., quiet, efficient and easy on the eyes. In terms of the service, the Blueair 303’s were quickly shipped and arrived in excellent condition, and my questions were answered promptly. Thank you for the quality of product and service.”
B. Rowley, Ottawa, ON

“The Austin Air Bedroom Machine air purifier that we purchased from you is working great. We now use it in the bedroom. We find that it works great on gaseous smells like smoke, barbecue, fireworks etc., but not as well on perfumes, sweet smells or cooking odours. We are very happy that it does what it does. Thank you for all of your help.”
R. Blair, Toronto, ON

“Finally I can breathe easy! No joke! It’s like I am no longer allergic to dust. I know that’s not true, but it certainly feels that way now. I can sleep through the night without having to use decongestants. I can even breathe better when doing high-intensity cardio in my living room. I am very impressed. I never would have thought this was possible, and only wish I would have talked to Robert at Modern Alchemy years ago.

I started with the Austin HealthMate Jr. in my bedroom, bought another for the other bedroom and then the IQAir HealthPro Plus for the main area of the apartment. It was one of the best investments I’ve ever made. I highly recommend these air purifiers to anyone with similar problems.

I still have to do a little light dusting of the furniture and vacuum once a week, but I also live in an old apartment building that distributes an extraordinary amount of dust through the ventilation system. Still, there is significantly less dust build-up than before I bought these air purifiers. I’d say about 85% less. This reduction allows me to stay on top of the remaining dust problem easily. This is as close to a resolution as I could have hoped for.

Thanks so much for your help Robert. The fact that I am no longer inhaling so many pollutants into my lungs has not escaped my notice either. Cleaner air allows me to breathe more deeply. Now I can’t wait to find out if the IQAir HealthPro Plus has the same effect on viruses. Not getting sick so often this winter would be the icing on the cake!”
H. Holden, Toronto ON

“This summer, when I moved into a recently-renovated house with my roommate and her two cats, I had no idea how badly I would react to the cats, the renovation, and the dust from all the boxes. I started wheezing like I hadn’t done in nearly a decade and went through practically a box of Kleenex a day. I was miserable, and I finally took to wearing a dust mask at all times while in the house; this kept me from reacting, but was clearly not a lifestyle choice I wanted to maintain indefinitely.

As I investigated all my options, several people suggested air purifiers, and I stumbled across the Modern Alchemy Air Purifier site online. The site was detailed and informative, and Robert was friendly, knowledgeable, and really helpful when I called. He came in person to take an air particle reading and examine our situation, and he recommended purifiers based on what we needed (and not on what was most expensive); we really felt as though he were trying to help us get the right product.

We invested in two purifiers (the Austin Air HealthMate and the Austin Air HealthMate Plus Jr.), the large one for the living room and the small one for my bedroom. It’s now two months later, and I have been dust-mask free the whole time! Kleenex usage has been drastically reduced, and I don’t even feel stuffy-nosed most of the time

I like how straightforward the HealthMate units are; you just plug them in, turn them on, and let them go. The outside gets vacuumed/wiped down when we do our regular cleaning, and I have the peace of mind of knowing that the filter only needs to be changed approximately once every five years (for which Modern Alchemy will send me a reminder e-mail, so I don’t even have to remember that!).

As an aside, the purifiers on their highest setting have also worked great as low-level white noise generators to filter out sounds that tended to keep me awake or wake me up at night. For times when we want quiet, on the lowest setting, we can barely even tell that the purifiers are on.

The house feels like a home now, and we’re delighted that we don’t have to pick between my living there and the cats living there. I feel a great deal healthier and much happier, and I would recommend Modern Alchemy Air Purifiers and their line of purifiers to anyone who’s in a similar situation.”
