Air Purification Is Necessary for The Home
Lately, we’re all spending more time at home. Whether you’re working, homeschooling, or just hanging out the quality of our indoor air has never been more important.
Indoor air pollution comes from a variety of different sources; some, such as harsh cleaning products, are easy to spot, but others may not be so obvious. If you’re cooking on a gas stove, for example, you could be releasing dangerous amounts of Nitrogen Dioxide into your home. Scented products, such as candles, laundry detergent, and air fresheners often contain harmful ingredients that can impact air quality. And if you live in a new build or have recently remodeled, you could be exposed to dangerous levels of chemicals and VOCs from new flooring, paint, furnishings, or even carpets.
Add to this the fact that modern homes are well-insulated and draft-free, so pollutants are often trapped inside, with nowhere to go, which affects your air quality and could contribute to breathing issues for you and your family.
CDC, WHO, and EPA Recommendations for Indoor 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® Plus 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, Potassium Iodide Impregnated Carbon, and Zeolite. Removes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, benzenes, 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.”
