How it works.

austin-airThe Baby’s Breath Machine features a unique filter which incorporates 30 square feet of true HEPA technology in conjunction with a special military carbon cloth. This exclusive combination called HEGA, is particularly effective at filtering allergens plus it performs well in damp, greasy and smoky environments. This machine has 3 fan speed settings which draw in air from all four sides for exceptional air gathering capacity. On the highest setting up to 125 cubic feet of air is cleaned every minute. Cleaned air exits through a louvered upper outlet on one side of the housing.

About the Baby’s Breath Filter

The Baby’s Breath Machine incorporates a unique combination of true HEPA/HEGA filtration. It is guaranteed for five years of exceptional performance.

Permafilt Pre-filter
Removes hair, pet dander, dust, pollen, allergens and mold.

This prefilter is designed to be vacuumed from outside of the unit at least once a month.

30 sq ft (2.79 sq metres) of True Medical Grade HEPA
Removes 99.97% of all airborne particles down to 0.3 microns in size (95% effectiveness at 0.1 microns) including bacteria, viruses and harmful micro-organisms.

HEGA – Military carbon cloth
This special carbon material does not release carbon dust. Consequently the filter is constructed so that air passes through the true HEPA filter, removing airborne particles before contacting the carbon cloth. The carbon cloth is then fully available for gas, smoke and odour removal and its useful life is increased.

No Cost Maintenance for Five Year Performance
Austin machines come with a 5 year mechanical warranty and a 5 year pro-rated filter guarantee for normal residential use. This means up to five years of top rated performance without replacing any parts. The ONLY upkeep required for Austin Air Machines is to vacuum the prefilter from outside the machine at least once per month.

Estimated Five Year Filter Replacement Cost
True HEPA/Carbon Cloth filter (includes PermaFilt prefilter) $245
