Why We Recommend Austin Air Purifiers

Austin Air makes first class air purifiers that surpass typical home air filters in performance, longevity and cost effectiveness. Austin Air Filters are highly regarded for their superior filtration abilities, long filter life, economical cost of operation, reliability, sturdy build and non-toxic materials including stainless steel housing. Every Austin air purifier comes with a five-year warranty on all parts and labor, plus a full five-year pro-rated filter warranty

Effective

Typical indoor air quality contains unhealthy particles and gases. Indoor air pollutants rank among the top 5 environmental risks to public health.* Austin Air Purifiers deliver superior air filtration to protect your lungs and sinuses from allergens, pollen, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dust mites, pet dander, smoke, chemical fumes, bad smells, urban exhaust and plain old dust.

Standard Austin air filters process 400 cubic feet of air every minute through 4-5 progressive stages of filtration.
Over 60 square feet of true medical grade HEPA filter material remove airborne particles including bacteria and viruses.
In addition the Austin HealthMate™ filter includes an outstanding 15 pounds of activated carbon/zeolite mix to adsorb gases, odours and toxic chemicals.

Fast, Powerful Relief

Standard Austin Air cleaners filter up to 1,500 square feet in approximately 15 – 20 minutes delivering fast relief from allergies and asthma. The smaller the space the faster the effects.
Based on conservative calculations, Austin standard machines deliver:
8 air exchanges per hour in a 235 sq ft space
6 air exchanges per hour in a 315 sq ft space
4 air exchanges per hour in a 470 sq ft space
2 air exchanges per hour in a 940 sq ft space

Cost Effective

Austin Air machines are premium quality air purifiers yet they are more economical to own than other air cleaners. Austin machines and their initial filters will still be functioning under warranty years long after other brands have required multiple replacement parts or have gone to the landfill.

Nothing to Replace for Five Years

In the long run, Austin Air machines are the most economical air purifiers to operate. No parts need to be replaced for up to five years of clean air, under normal residential use.

Cost of ownership for a typical lower quality air cleaner will eventually exceed an Austin Air HealthMate™. Even at 3-year filter changes, Austin air filters are economical.

Easy Maintenance

Austin air filters save you time as well as money. You won’t have to hassle with the frequent filter changes required to maintain other brands of air purifiers. The only maintenance requirement is to vacuum the outside of the Austin machine at least once a month.

Quality Construction and Non-Toxic Materials

Austin Air machines have a stainless steel housing with a baked on non-toxic paint finish. Efficient seals and precision fitting ensure thorough filtration of sub-micron particles without air by-passing or contaminants leaking into finished air.
Standard Austin Air machines have easy-roll casters for easy maneuverability.

Ozone-Free Operation

Austin Air cleaners do not emit any by-products such as ozone, a toxic gas. Ozone is a severe irritant, especially for people with serious respiratory conditions such as asthma.

Unbeatable Warranty for Service Life plus Filter Life

5 Year Mechanical Warranty

Your Austin Air cleaner is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 5 years from the date of purchase, as long as your Austin air cleaner has been operated under normal residential use and that you have completed and returned your warranty registration to Austin Air Systems.

Your Austin Air filter is covered by a 5 year pro-rated warranty, by far the most comprehensive warranty in the Air Purifier industry.

30-Day Money Back Guarantee

New Austin machines come with a 30-day no-questions-asked return policy. The customer would pay for shipping (for delivery from and return to Ontario) if the customer decided to return the unit within 30 days of purchase. (See details under FAQs.)

How Austin Air Filters Work

austin-air

360° Progressive Filtering System

Austin Machines efficiently draw in air from all sides to deliver more clean air faster.

Incoming air is processed through 4 or 5 progressive stages of filtration. The quality and quantity of Austin’s air filtration materials is unsurpassed.

 

Every Austin Air Purifier incorporates true HEPA filtration and large amounts of carbon in a thoroughly sealed system. Although these essential factors increase air resistance and reduce delivered air flow rates, the superior build and components of an Austin Air machine guarantees superior filtration results.

Every Austin Air filter includes a specific combination from among these materials:

True Medical Grade HEPA

HEPA means High Efficiency Particulate Adsorption. True Medical Grade HEPA is the most effective particulate filtering media available. It was originally developed by the Atomic Energy Commission specifically to protect the Human Respiratory System from airborne radioactive contaminants. True HEPA is a sub-micron filter which removes 99.97% of all particulate down to 0.3 microns and 95% of particulate 0.1 microns and even smaller in size.

Activated Carbon & Zeolite – the most powerful adsorbents known

Austin Air Cleaners have the highest levels of gas and odor filtering materials available. Austin filters* incorporate the two most effective adsorbents known: activated carbon and zeolite. The extremely porous Activated Carbon is made from renewable coconut shells. Combined with the molecular sieving properties of natural Zeolite, this blend creates a maximum surface area to chemically bind and absorb impurities, odours, smoke, toxic gases and VOC’s like formaldehyde.

HEGA

HEGA stands for High Efficiency Gas Adsorption. The Austin Allergy Machine, The Bedroom machine and the Baby’s Breath Junior Machine combine both true HEPA and HEGA technologies plus Activated Carbon to effectively deliver long life protection from cigarette smoke, woodstove smoke, heavy pollen, dust and damp environments.

Made in USA, Born in Canada

Austin Air is a family owned business which began in Ontario in 1991. It has grown to become the most respected name in home air purification in North America. All Austin Air purification systems are now built in-house in Buffalo, New York at Austin Air’s manufacturing facility, the largest of its kind in the world. You can count on Austin Air to be around long into the future.
