If you have any trouble with allergies, respiratory/breathing problems or sensitivity to chemicals, Austin is the air purifier for you.

As we learn to live with the threat of COVID-19 we are all concerned about our health and the health of our loved ones, particularly if they are elderly or have on going health problems.

So as we face the challenges ahead, we thought wed take this opportunity to explain how our units can help.

What is a viral load?

Emerging evidence suggests the main method of transmission for COVID-19 is airborne. When we come into contact with an infected person, they release the virus into the environment. The number of viral particles a person comes into contact with, may determine how sick they become. Being exposed to a high viral load can overwhelm our immune system and increase our chances of severe illness

Do Austin Air Purifiers protect against COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new strain of virus that as yet, remains untested. However, the Medical Grade HEPA technology used in our filters is proven to remove 95% of all pollutants as small as 0.1 microns. The COVID-19 virus is larger than this, so we are confident our air purifiers are effectively removing the vast majority of the virus when it is airborne.

There is also emerging evidence from the UK Health Protection Agency that shows the HEGA carbon cloth, used in our Bedroom Machine, is highly effective at capturing and destroying airborne viruses.

Reducing the viral load

Using an Austin Air Purifier reduces the amount of airborne virus a person may be exposed to. This helps to lessen risk in two ways. In the first instance, it may prevent them from contracting the virus altogether. And if they do become infected, it could lower the viral load in the surrounding environment. Reducing the viral load in this way gives the immune system a better chance of fighting the virus and therefore reduces the risk of serious symptoms.

However, it is important to mention, that as well as airborne transmission, the virus can also be spread via surfaces and human contact. Therefore, it is vital that we regularly wash our hands.



Which unit should I buy?

If COVID-19 is your main concern, for ultimate protection, we recommend the Austin Air Bedroom Machine. The HEPA technology used in all our models effectively removes 95% of airborne viruses that are 0.1 microns and larger, as well as everyday pollutants such as dust, dander and allergens. However, the Austin Air Bedroom Machine has an extra level of protection against COVID-19, as the HEGA carbon cloth, also captures and destroys airborne viruses.



Other options

You may also want to consider the Austin Air HealthMate and the HealthMate Plus. Both models use HEPA technology and are highly effective at removing airborne viruses and bacteria as well as other airborne allergens. The carbon blend in the HealthMate Plus model is also unrivalled in its ability to remove chemicals and VOCs.
