If you live with allergies, breathing problems or a sensitivity to chemicals, Austin is the solution for you.

We are all naturally concerned about our own health as well as the health of the people we care about as we learn to live with Covid-19 in our daily lives. especially if they are elderly or already have health issues.

We felt that it would be helpful, as we face these challenges ahead, to take this opportunity to let you know how Austin units can help.

Questions Regarding Austin Air Purifier Systems

What is a viral load?

The latest evidence points to the main form of transmission for Covid-19 is airborne transmission. Infected people release the virus into the air. The greater number of viral particles someone comes in contact with could determine how sick they could get.

Do Austin Filters protect against COVID-19?

The medical grade HEPA air purifier technology used in the Austin units has been proven to remove 95% of all contaminants down to as small as 0.1 microns. Scientific evidence has shown that the Covid-19 virus is larger than 0.1 microns so Austin Air Purifiers are effective at removing the vast majority of the airborne virus.

Also, evidence from the UK Health Protection Agency shows that the HEGA Carbon cloth that is used in the Bedroom Machine if highly effective at filtering out airborne viruses.

Reducing the viral load

Using an Austin Air Cleaner will greatly reduce the amount of airborne virus a person may come in contact with. This could help lessen your risk in 2 ways. First, it could prevent someone from contracting the virus altogether and if someone were to become infected, it could lower the viral load so they lessen their risk of more serious symptoms.

Even though this virus is airborne, it can also be transmitted by contact with surfaces so it is very important to wash our hands regularly.

What unit should you buy?

If Bacteria and viruses are you main concern, we would recommend the Bedroom Machine. Not only does the HEPA technology in the Bedroom machine filter out 95% of contaminants down to 0.1 microns but it also utilizes the HEGA carbon cloth that also captures and destroys airborne viruses.

For more than 30 years, Austin Air has produced medical-grade HEPA and carbon air purifiers. Since then, we have made it our duty to raise awareness of the risks posed by airborne contaminants and to explain the numerous, frequently unconnected health problems that can arise from inhaling contaminated air.

Our air purifiers will eliminate a variety of pollutants from your home or place of business by combining Medical Grade HEPA with a special carbon blend.

Over the past few years, the demand for purifiers has increased dramatically, but so have queries and worries about them. We therefore examine some of those topics this week and work to dispel any misunderstandings that could be there.

Common Misconception: Since purifiers don't use "fresh" air from the outside, they are ineffective.

TRUTH: The most important factor in this situation is how we define "fresh" air. Street air, often known as outdoor air, is frequently hardly ever "fresh." The EPA (1) lists carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide as the most prevalent pollutants in outdoor air.

Therefore, it is true that portable HEPA purifiers do not use outdoor air, but this is something we consider beneficial. Austin air purifiers exclusively give pure, contaminant-free air. As a result, utilizing an Austin to purify the air in a room will result in far better air quality than simply opening a window to bring in some "fresh" air.

Common Misconception: Air purifiers are ineffective in large areas like classrooms.

TRUTH: It's crucial to make sure the air purifier you choose is big enough for the space you need it in. A lot of purifiers are made for compact spaces, but Austin is not one of them. Our devices' distinctive construction guarantees that the filtered, clean air is pushed back into the space via a directional export vent. This ensures that all of the air in the room, not just that near the unit, is free of pollutants. This ability to circulate air throughout a space, along with an unmatched filter capacity, ensures great cleaning even in vast areas.

Common Misconception: purifiers trap COVID-19 but later release it, posing a recontamination risk.

TRUTH: Our purifiers are made to draw impurities into the machine, where they are then filtered by a four- or five-stage system that includes a pre-filter, a medium filter, a HEPA filter, a carbon filter, and a HEGA carbon cloth. The carbon filter, the HEPA, the HEGA, and the medium-sized filter are all sealed into a one-way system. Once contaminants are trapped in the filter, they have nowhere to go. In the filter, this is true for COVID-19, mold spores, allergies, and any other pollutants.

Common Misconception: COVID-19 is too small to be captured by HEPA, which only captures particles that are 0.3 microns or larger.

TRUTH: HEPA is capable of catching particles as small as 0.3 microns, despite the fact that Medical Grade HEPA is certified to remove particles as large as 0.3 microns. Perhaps surprisingly, 0.3 micron-sized particles are more challenging to catch than smaller ones, which is why this particle size is chosen in the certification. Due to a phenomenon known as "Brownian Motion," smaller particles like COVID-19 are simpler to detect. Smaller particles move in a zigzag pattern, making it simpler for the HEPA filter to absorb them.

Common Misconception: People mistakenly believe that air purifiers require frequent, expensive filter changes.

TRUTH: A number of air purifiers on the market need their filters changed frequently, some as frequently as once or twice a year. Here at Austin, we use unparalleled quantities of HEPA and carbon in our filters to provide a lengthy filter life of up to five years and prevent this additional price.

Common Misconception: Air cleaners Generate Ozone

TRUTH: Several electronic or ionizer air cleaners are being marketed as a way to get rid of virus particles from the air since the introduction of COVID-19. However, this kind of technology just produces particles that are electrically charged and adhere to the contaminants in the air rather than removing them. Particles that have been linked to something fall to the ground and can then be cleaned up. Independent investigations (2), however, reveal that using electronic air cleaning equipment might result in the direct or indirect production of hazardous quantities of pollutants.

This is why employing HEPA air purifiers is advised by the WHO (3), the CDC (4), and experts in the field of science (5) as a secure and reliable method of enhancing air quality and lowering the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
