Welcome back, fellow clean-air enthusiasts! In today’s blog post, we will tackle the topic of keeping your air purifier in tip-top shape. Like any other appliance, your trusty air purifier needs a little TLC to do its job efficiently. But with Austin Air, it doesn’t have to be difficult. 

Read the Manual

Yes, we know it sounds boring, but trust us, it’s essential. Each air purifier comes with maintenance instructions, so take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our recommendations. But good news – our instructions are simple. 

Filter Replacement

Filters are the main components of air purifiers. They trap all the dirt, dust, and other pesky particles in your home. Over time, these filters can become clogged, reducing the efficiency of your purifier. But with Austin Air purifiers, this takes a long time. The filters in our air purifiers last up to five years. 

When it’s time to change the filter, it may have clumps of dust and dirt, and it may even look black. Another indication your filter may need changing is if your indoor air quality isn’t as good as it usually is when you’re running your unit. 

Cleaning the Exterior

A clean exterior keeps your air purifier looking spiffy and keeps dust at a minimum. First, unplug your purifier and gently wipe the outside with a soft cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they may offgas chemicals that will just need to be removed from the air. 

Dusting the 360-Degree Air Intake

While you’re at it, let’s remember the 360-degree air intake of your air purifier. Dust and debris can accumulate when the unit is taking air in. Simply use the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner to clean the intake. 


By following these simple steps, you’ll ensure that your air purifier remains efficient and your indoor air quality remains top-notch. Remember, a clean air purifier is a happy air purifier, and it’s working hard to keep you breathing clean, fresh air. So, give it some love and enjoy the benefits of a healthier home!
