It is crucial to have effective air purification in any healthcare facility that sees numerous patients a day including:
These facilities are frequently visited by people who are sick or immuno-compromised and are thereby more susceptible to airborne contaminants. This is especially true for facilities that care for the elderly. Poor air quality and increased risk of exposure to airborne pathogens and contaminants such as viruses and bacteria can put patients and staff at risk for serious infection.
Having air purifiers in the building not only helps remove the contaminants emitted from furniture and heating/cooling sources but also helps to eliminate aerosol particles released from sick patients, protecting both patients and staff and providing everyone peace of mind.
According to the CDC, WHO, and EPA air purifiers using HEPA and Carbon are the safest and most effective solutions for minimizing the spread of viruses in indoor spaces. The Medical Grade HEPA technology used in our filters is proven to remove up to 99% of all airborne contaminants as small as 0.1 microns, as well as everyday pollutants such as dust, dander and allergens. Austin Air uses up to 15 lbs. of activated carbon and 60 sq. ft. of HEPA in our filters. No one else in the industry comes close to using that much.

Our involvement in clinical trials started in 2001 when we were selected by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the country’s number one children’s hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, to take part in a clinical trial to improve children’s asthma symptoms and reduce visits to the ER.
Since then we have been involved in a number of trials, working with some of the country's leading institutions, including Johns Hopkins University and the University of Washington. The results of these trials confirm what we have known for many years. Running an Austin Air purifier removes a wide range of airborne pollutants and will help to improve respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD.

We often think that air quality in rural areas is far better than in cities. With fewer vehicles on the road and all that open space, it makes sense that the air is cleaner, right? Wrong. Sources Of Pollution in Rural Areas Methane from livestock, pesticides, fertilizers, dust, and emissions from farming machinery can all create airborne pollutants, often many miles from the site of the activity. This can have significant implications for local residents, as these contaminants find...
According to the American Lung Association, the Pittsburgh region has some of the worst air pollution levels in the country. Despite some improvements in recent years, cars, local power plants, and heavy industry, such as the US Steel's Clairton Coke Works in the Mon Valley, are still spewing out a wide range of airborne contaminants. In fact, the county's air quality monitor, close to the Clairton Plant, has the highest recorded soot readings east of the Rockies. There is no...
Have you ever wondered what makes a sunset? Why does the sky light up with red, orange, and yellow at the end of the day? It's all down to light, how far it has to travel, and how it interacts with molecules in the air. During the day, when the sun is at its highest, light doesn't need to travel far. These shorter wavelengths of light create blue and green colors. But as the sun travels towards the horizon at...
