Do Austin Air Purifiers protect against COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a new strain of virus that as yet, remains untested. However, the Medical Grade HEPA technology used in our filters is proven to remove 95% of all pollutants as small as 0.1 microns. The COVID-19 virus is larger than this, so we are confident our air purifiers are effectively removing the vast majority of the virus when it is airborne.
There is also emerging evidence from the UK Health Protection Agency that shows the HEGA carbon cloth, used in our Bedroom Machine, is highly effective at capturing and destroying airborne viruses.
The Austin Air Bedroom machine is designed specifically for those who desire a better nights sleep. This is the most advanced filtering system that Austin Air has ever designed. It has been built to meet the requirements set out by the Johns Hopkins University Medical School for ongoing studies where this new filtering system captures gasses and particles at the nano size level.
Stage 1 Large Particle Pre FIlter. Removes particles easily seen by the naked eye (e.g. dust, hair and pet dander)
Stage 2 Medium Particle Pre Filter. Removes small to medium size particles (e.g. molds, spores and pollen)
Stage 3 Nearly 15 lbs. of Proprietary Carbon Blend Removes chemicals, gases and odors (e.g. sulfuric acid and ammonia)
Stage 4 60 sq. ft. of certified HEPA Removes 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns
Stage 5 HEGA Carbon Cloth High Efficiency Gas Arrestance
