About Austin Air
Austin Air Healthmate was born out of
necessity as President, Richard Taylor, undertook the task of improving what
many doctors and specialists couldn’t; his wife’s quality of life.
Since his wife, Joyce, was a child, she had
difficulty breathing. An endless round of doctors and specialists didn't make
any difference; neither did medications or dietary changes. She suffered from
this debilitating condition for years, until Richard realized the obvious. The
air Joyce was breathing was contaminated.
Drawing upon technology used in medical
facilities, Richard reproduced the only environment where Joyce had relief of
her symptoms, “the hospital clean room”. Using True Medical HEPA, surrounded
with Activated Carbon he created a filter that addressed all the issues related
to environmental particulate contamination and chemical toxicity. Within a week
Joyce was finally sleeping undisturbed through the night.
Today, at 480,000 square feet Austin has
the largest air cleaner manufacturing facility in the world, producing
everything in house from filter, to metal forming, to the final paint.
Austin air is extremely proud that the
Healthmate is the air cleaner of choice by leading doctors throughout the United
States and many other parts of the world. As a matter of fact, there is hardly a
country in the world today, where an Austin Air cleaner is not hard at work
cleaning the air in someone's home.
Designed from the inside out.
The engineers at Austin Air concentrated on
developing the most critical component of the air cleaner first; the filter.
Austin Air’s 360-degree intake system draws
air into all sides of the air cleaner, maximizing efficiency and delivering more
clean air faster.
Every minute, 250 cubic feet of air is
processed by a 4-stage filter that progressively removes contaminants out of the
This process enables Austin Air cleaners to:
Technology you can rely on.
- Achieve the highest levels of performance.
- Attain superior air flow rates.
- Sustain a longer filter life (5-years under normal residential use).
- Increase the life expectantly of the Medical Grade HEPA, the most
critical media in the filtration process.
For an air cleaner to be effective it must
remove sub-micron particles, noxious gases and chemicals, without creating any
by-products such as ozone. In every Austin Air cleaner, you will find True
Medical Grade HEPA and Activated Carbon, the only trusted filter technology used
in hospitals and operating rooms.
Developed by the Atomic Energy Commission to specifically protect the Human
Respiratory System, True HEPA is the most effective particulate filtering media
on the market. True Medical Grade HEPA removes 99.97% of all particulates as
small as 0.3 microns and 95% of particulates 0.1 microns and smaller.
Nothing but clean air.
Austin Air uses specially manufactured Activated Carbon, which is highly porous,
giving the carbon a larger surface area to chemically bind and adsorb more
impurities such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and other noxious gases.
Unlike electrostatic-precipitators or ionic
generators, Austin Air cleaners do not emit any by-products, such as toxic
Many customers rely on their Austin Air
cleaner to control very serious respiratory conditions, such as asthma. Even the
smallest amount of an irritant (ozone being one of the most toxic) can have
severe effects. Had those customers purchased an electrostatic precipitator or
ionic generator, they would still be suffering unnecessarily.
Integrity in Claims and Test Results
Austin Air submits their air cleaners to
only the most stringent government and independent third party testing; tests
designed to protect the consumer by ensuring that products work as claimed.
Austin Air does not submit its products for private testing to guarantee a
Extensive tests on flow rate, flow design,
removal of vapors, gases and sub-micron particles have been performed by:
- Battelle Laboratories; one of the world’s most respected testing
- the Army Corp of Engineers at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center for
As result of these tests, Austin Air was
chosen by the U.S. Government to fulfill the largest deployment of air cleaners
in American history and chosen by FEMA and The Red Cross to address the serious
air quality concerns in post 9/11 New York.
