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.
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.
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:
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.”
When the weather outside is cold, we keep our windows and doors shut. This traps pollutants inside, with nowhere for them to go. Wood burners, gas stoves, furnishing, and cleaning products all emit dangerous chemicals, gasses, and VOCs that can be a real risk to our health. Keep the air in your home clean and safe this winter with Austin Air!
“Finally one that works! I have severe allergies and this is the first purifier that has actually had a significant impact.”
“After the start of the fire season in the the western US I actively researched Air Filters. My sister in law has purchased 3 Healthmate Plus systems for herself and other family members. They all say this system works and it is easy to operate. So I purchased a Healthmate Plus. It arrived the day before our air quality deteriorated into the Red Hazard sound. Wild fires to the North and South. I use this system in the master bedroom at night and roll it into the living room during the day, My coughing ended, my lungs have cleared. I sleep well and awake refreshed. This product really does work. It is not that noisy. Great Product.”

“This thing has been a really great investment for my household; I am really impressed with how quickly it can filter the air in a large space, remove odors, smoke, anything undesirable in the air. Equally impressive is how simple and elegant its design is. It's everything I need, nothing I don't, and it just works really well.”

“I have been very happy with the bedroom machine. It has helped us sleep great at night. I also purchased a replacement HEPA filter for our old machine in the living room, which still runs perfectly since 2012. They keep it simple with no fancy lights or electronics inside or out which allows you to use these machines for a very long time.”

“We have been very pleased with our two units that have worked flawlessly over the last 2.5 years. I recommend this company to anyone in the market and we are now lifetime customers!.”
“I live in Oregon and suffer with severe asthma. Recently our beautiful state was ravished with tragic forest fires. My town was engulfed with hazardous smoke for many weeks...I couldn't breathe. When my Austin Air purifier arrived, I was so grateful to finally have clean air...Awesome Air to help me breathe..thank you for such an amazing product. You are truly a life saver..”

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...
