Austin Air is one of the oldest and most respected air purifier companies in the US. They produce a variety of air purifier models, offering air cleaning systems that meet the needs of any customer. While Austin Air is the choice of the US government, it’s also ideal for the average American who wants to improve the indoor air quality of his or her home.
Why Air Purifiers Are Necessary
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that indoor air quality is two to five-times more polluted than outdoor air. The EPA tries to reduce outdoor air pollution but consumers must be vigilant about their home’s indoor air pollution. Air purifiers are one way to address this concern about indoor pollutants. They are especially helpful for people with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions. Air purifiers remove airborne allergens, irritants, and pollutants that trigger asthma attacks, providing relief for many of the people who suffer from respiratory issues. Given that people take 9 out of every 10 breaths indoors, it’s vital that they breathe clean air, with as few contaminants as possible. Austin Air offers just the type of air purifiers that can help improve indoor air pollution and quality of life.
Complete Filtration Solution
Austin Air purifiers effectively filter out airborne pollen, dust, pet dander, mold, tobacco smoke, gases, chemical vapors, and even bacteria and viruses. All models feature a 4-stage filter that includes a large and medium particle pre-filter, an activated carbon and zeolite filter for removing gases and vapors, and most importantly, a medical-grade HEPA filter. HEPA filters are the gold-standard, removing 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 microns. The pre-filters remove many larger sized pollutants before they even reach the HEPA filter, making all the filters last longer. People won’t have to bother with frequent filter changes; they last up to five years before needing to be replaced. Austin Air purifiers don’t emit ozone as a byproduct of filtration, so customers can be assured they’re not unintentionally polluting their homes like they may with an ionizing air cleaner.
Austin Air Purifiers by the Numbers
Every Austin Air Purifier takes in air from 360°. Full-size purifiers can clean a 1500 sq/ft room in just 15 minutes. The company also makes smaller versions for bedrooms and nurseries, which can clean 700 sq/ft rooms in about 30 minutes. People can also rest easy about their energy use. Austin Air makes its air purifiers energy-efficient with a maximum draw of only 135 watts even on the highest setting. They use regular 120 volt outlets. On average, the air purifiers cost less than a penny per hour of use. The purifiers’ 3-speed fans are whisper-quiet, allowing people to get a good night’s sleep even as the purifier continuously puts out clean air. Austin Air purifiers come in many colors, sizes, and types, so customers are sure to find a model that meets their needs.
Tested and Used by the Government
Austin Air’s products have been thoroughly tested by some of the world’s most respected testing labs including Battelle Laboratories. They’ve even been tested by the US Army Corp of Engineers. These tests have studied removal of gases, vapors, and sub-micron particles, flow rate, and flow design, among others. One such study, “Test Report for the System Effectiveness of Home/Commercial Portable Room Air Cleaners” was commissioned by the U.S. Army Soldier, Biological Chemical Command. It found that the Austin Air HealthMate (HM 400) was one of the most effective commercially-available air purifiers, filtering 90% of contaminant vapor from a sealed room in only 35 minutes. The results of this test, and others, were so impressive that Austin Air was chosen by the US government and the Red Cross to supply air purifiers to New York City residents after 9/11.
