Air Purification is Necessary for the Workplace

Whether your work in an office, retail shop, bar or restaurant, salon, bakery, or classroom indoor spaces shared by multiple people pose a risk for transmission of pathogens and airborne pollutants that can lead to illnesses including seasonal colds, flu, and COVID-19 as well as contribute to the symptoms of respiratory issues including asthma, COPD, and allergies.

Work environments are often difficult to ventilate and modern buildings are sealed shut with no option to open windows for air circulation. While older buildings with outdated HVAC systems do not provide adequate ventilation or filtration.

When it comes to air quality in the workplace, it can be a breeding ground for contaminants that do little to boost productivity or wellbeing— without proper air purification.

CDC, WHO, and EPA Recommendations for Air Purification in Public Spaces

Advice from the CDC, WHO, and EPA is clear: to minimize the spread of airborne viruses like COVID-19, in indoor spaces, portable HEPA air purifiers are recommended. In fact, an extensive review by the EPA concluded the combination of HEPA and Carbon is the safest and most effective solution. Purifiers that use UV lights, Ionization, and PCO technology are not ideal because they can produce dangerous byproducts that are then emitted into the air.

No Other Brand Comes Close to Austin Air Systems

According to an EPA report, a significant amount of HEPA and Carbon must be used in your air purifier’s filtration otherwise filters will need to be changed often (every few months). That’s why the Austin Air HealthMate® has:

60 sq. ft. of True Medical Grade HEPA proven to remove 99% of all virus particles larger than 0.1 microns.
Over 780 cubic inches of Activated Carbon and Zeolite. Removes chemicals, gases, and odors
No one in the industry even comes close to using that much. This ensures a long filter life of up to 5 years.

“That’s the impact of Austin.”
