Specially Designed for Allergy and Asthma Sufferers
The Austin Air Allergy Machine uses a HEPA material combined with a carbon cloth. This unit is as effective as the regular HealthMate at removing particulates that initiate allergic reactions and will remove some odors. Casters are a standard for easy positioning where you want clean air.
The Austin Air Allergy Machine is specially designed for allergy and asthma sufferers. The Austin air cleaner utilizes both the HEPA 99.97% (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) and HEGA (High Efficiency Gas Absorption) air filters to produce an effective combination of filtration to alleviate bothersome allergic flare-ups. The HEGA 2.1 is exclusive to Austin's products, and is specifically engineered for durability and effective relief of coughing, sneezing, nasal congestion, dry or watery eyes, and other allergy symptoms.
Built Like No Other Air Cleaner
The Austin Air Cleaner is designed and built to superior standards to give you and your family the highest levels of protection and reliability. Austin Air Cleaners are backed by a 5 year warranty on all parts and labor.
Austin Air cleaners use no plastic parts. Plastics off gases and cause problems for the chemically sensitive. That's why Austin Air cleaners have all steel construction. The sturdy steel construction of every Austin Air product guarantees that your air cleaner will last for years.
Another important feature of the Austin Air Cleaner is its whisper quiet operation. With a vibration-free welded steel body, the unit runs with a gentle background hush. The only sound you will hear is moving air.
The Austin True Medical HEPA and HEGA filter assembles are pro-rated for five full years. Compare this with the cost of frequent filter replacement in other units. You will find that while you may pay more initially for Austin Air's premium quality, your investment will be repaid many times over.
Austin Air's high efficiency PSC motor draws minimal current. Even on the highest setting, it will cost only a penny an hour.
The powerful Austin Air Healthmate can clean the air in multiple rooms. Rated for 400CFM on high setting the HealthMate cleans a room area of up to 1500 sq. ft.
Austin Air cleaners are totally safe for continuous operation, turn them on and leave them on. Of course, for your convenience every Austin Air cleaner has a 3 speed centrifugal fan to adjust the unit to your liking.
Easy roll casters let you move your Austin Air cleaner to any room in your home. Delivering super cleaned air where you need it.
Why are Austin Air's products superior to others on the market?
1. The filtration system. Austin uses 15 lbs. of activated carbon in the HealthMate and an advanced military carbon cloth in the Allergy Machine placed inside the HEPA filter to capture more airborne particles.
2. Austin Air's products are made of steel and use a baked on powder coating so the products do not off-gas. Other companies have plastic products and/or use sprayed on paint, so their products can emit harmful gases.
3. Austin Air's products have high-velocity airflow, which creates a clean air pocket around the user. If you turn on an Austin Air cleaner next to a competitor you can really feel the difference.
How many filters are inside the Austin Air cleaner?
One main filter made up of 2 filtration media - in the HealthMate it's the True Medical HEPA paper and activated carbon and zeolite. In the Allergy Machine it's the True Medical HEPA paper with military carbon cloth placed inside. The only other filter is the pre-filter (also know as the permafilt) The pre-filter is a cotton cloth that lines the inside wall of the unit. The purpose of the pre-filter is to stop any hair or large dust particles from clogging the HEPA.
What are the guarantees?
The motor, fan and other working parts are guaranteed for 5 years. The filter carries a pro-rated 5 year warranty. This means if the filter lasts less than 5 years, Austin Air will discount the cost of a new filter based on the number of years the used filter has been in use.
What would cause a filter to fill up in less than 5 years?
Having many pets, new carpeting, paint fumes, heavy smoking, city pollution, etc.
How long do you think my unit will last?
The unit should last well over 5 years or more if properly maintained. It is only the internal filter that must be replaced when needed.
Where should I place the unit for maximum effectiveness?
It can be placed anywhere in a room, including corners, but must be at least four (4) inches from the wall to give consistent effective results. The air cleaner should be placed in the bedroom at night with the door closed in order to produce the best personal results. The best room in the house to use a single machine is the bedroom.
How much space does the air cleaner effectively clean?
The standard HealthMate unit or the AllergyMachine will clean an average bedroom in about 15 minutes with the door closed. In technical terms, they clean up to 1,500 square feet. The HealthMate Jr model cleans up to 700 square feet. (All estimates assume 8 ft. ceilings).
Does the Austin Air cleaner require any special maintenance?
Periodic (once a month) vacuuming of the four sides of the outside screen with the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner is the only regular maintenance required for the air cleaner.
How much electricity is required to run the air cleaner?
Your Austin Air cleaner uses an ordinary 120 volt outlet. Maximum draw is about 135 watts on the high setting or 1 cent per hour, average cost.
