Is Austin Air Worth It?

Is it important to you to have clean air inside your home and be free from pollutants?

If you answered 'Yes', an air purifier is necessary to have these days. Indoor air pollution is worse than outdoor air pollution and we are spending more and more time indoors. 

When it comes to air purifiers, there are many options to pick from and prices range from $100 up to over $1,000. 

Austin Air, with over 30 years in the air purification industry, is one of the best air purifiers on the market today. Whatever your indoor air concerns are, Austin Air can help improve the air quality for you. 

So what makes Austin Air worth the purchase when it is one of the air purifiers over $500 on the market?

Five-Year Filter Life Expectancy

You mean, I don't have to change a filter for 5 years?

Yes, Austin Air stands by its five-year filter life for a normal household setting. No need to change out the pre-filter, HEPA, and carbon filters at separate times like other brands. Around the five-year mark, order your filter replacement system and change them out. It is easy as that. 

Austin Air asks that you vacuum the four sides of the outside screen around once a month. Other than that, no other regular maintenance is required!

Try and find another company that has a filter life expectancy for all their filters.

Medical Grade Air Purifiers that are Clinically Proven

When you have to pay over $500 for an air purifier, I'm sure you want the best of the best and to make sure you are getting what you paid for. Austin Air proves that. 

Austin Air Purifiers have been proven to remove pollutants in independent clinical trials that were carried out by leading university hospitals. Trials and studies were done by Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore (2nd study here), Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and the University of Washington shows the effectiveness of Austin Air purifiers in homes.

They also teamed up with FEMA and the American Red Cross to help out during 9/11, Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, and gas leaks in Southern California.

Being recognized through clinical trials and studies show that Austin Air can be trusted as a great air purifier to have and has data to back it up. A few more reasons Austin Air is worth the price tag.

Industry Leaders in HEPA and Carbon Filtration

When looking for top air purifiers you should want them to have a True HEPA filter and activated carbon to get rid of pollutants that are inside your home.

Austin Air gives you these in their air purifiers and gives you A LOT of them. And a lot more than other air purifiers around the same price range!

An industry-leading 60 sq. ft of True Medical Grade HEPA filter allows for the effective removal of particles and for a long filter life. The True HEPA filter removes 99.97 percent of all particles that are 0.3 microns in size. Can you find another air purifier with that much of a HEPA filter? 

The 780 cubic inches of Activated Carbon is also a leader in the industry. Having that much carbon allows for more gases, odors, and chemicals to be removed. Teaming up with the activated carbon is Zeolite, a natural mineral that is effective in adsorbing formaldehyde, ammonia, and carbon monoxide

360° Intake System with Steel Housing

Austin Air has a 360° intake system that draws air into all sides of the purifier allowing for more polluted air to pass through the filters. 

While other air purifiers on the market often restrict the air intake to one side of the air purifier, Austin Air gives you more ability to eliminate polluted air quicker. 

The housing is made of steel that has been welded together to prevent any rattling. With this, the air purifiers are more durable and able to last longer than some other competitors.

Air purifiers that are mostly made of plastic have the capability to emit ozone and create gases. With Austin Air, you are assured that no ozone is being emitted. 

It also has a baked-on power-coated paint that has no off-gassing. The only plastic parts on the whole unit are the fan blade, caster wheels, and control knob. 

With an intake system that is superior and housing made to last a lifetime, Austin Air gives you more reasons why their air purifiers are worth the cost. 

Top Warranties in the Industry

Austin Air has two warranties that it stands by. The Austin Air purifier is warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of five (5) years from the date of purchase as long as it was operated under normal residential use and that you have completed and returned your warranty registration to Austin Air Systems.

The filter warranty, which is one of the best in the industry, is also five (5) years and pro-rated. Austin Air filters are designed to last for an unprecedented 5 years under normal residential use. You are not going to find many other air purifiers that have these warranties. 

In the long run, Austin Air's air purifiers are well worth it. You might be paying a little more upfront than other air purifiers but with the 5-year filter life, industry-leading HEPA and activated carbon, and great warranties, it is well worth the long-term investment for better health. Add in the clinical studies to show their effectiveness and Austin Air has our stamp of approval.
