Your friends know you take your health seriously. You’re the first one to learn about new treatments in allergies, asthma, or just living a cleaner, greener life. You’re the first to debunk wild internet myths that multiply like dust mites. You’re the go-to person for trusted information. Here’s 4 things to lay on your friends about your Austin Air air cleaner that will seriously impress them.
Only Approved Air Cleaner for SoCal Disaster
Last year when the Aliso Canyon gas leak was puking 1,200,000 pounds of methane into the air every day, the governor declared a state of emergency. Heck yeah, who wants to breathe that stuff?
SOCAL needed to protect the residents of Porter Ranch while they worked to repair the leak. Most air cleaners did not meet strict California or SOCAL’s stringent standards for producing clean air.
Austin Air was the air cleaner designated to protect the citizens of Porter Ranch and the surrounding area. Most of Austin Air’s production capacity was temporarily focused on units for Aliso Canyon
Clinically Proven to Reduce Asthma-Related ER Visits
Your Austin Air cleaner was part of a double blind, placebo controlled study to determine if air cleaners could reduce the number of asthma-related hospital visits in children that are exposed to secondhand smoke.
Kids exposed to secondhand smoke are 1.5 times more likely to develop asthma. So, the American Academy of Pediatrics set out to determine if a high quality HEPA filter would help these kids.
The kids were divided into two groups. One had two Austin Air cleaners with HEGA filters placed in the house and the other group had two Austin Air cleaners without filters placed in the house. No participants or clinicians knew which group had a filter or no filter.
The group that had filters in their machines had an over 18% reduction in the number of asthma-related visits to the hospital.
The filtering media in the Austin Air HEGA filter was developed as a protection against chemical warfare. HEGA filters adsorb chemicals from the air and are used in radiological labs, nuclear power plants, medical research facilities, and other dangerous situations. They are pretty handy around the house for taking chemicals like secondhand smoke out of the air too.
Powder Coated – Not Painted
Your air cleaner doesn’t get its rocking good looks from a slick paint job. Your air cleaner is powder coated.
Powder coating starts as a powder that applied using an electrostatic charge. It is then heat cured. The result is a very strong, durable finish. Powder coated finishes don’t off-gas VOCs and don’t pollute the air.
FEMA Approved Post 9/11
After the attacks on the World Trade Center air quality was a big concern for area residents. Austin Air cleaners underwent rigorous testing at the US Army’s Aberdeen Test Facility to determine if they could improve the air quality for Manhattan residents. They were one of the few machines that were FEMA approved and distributed in the area.
They were also provided to Anniston Alabama residents when powerful chemical weapons were decommissioned in their area.
Serious Problems Require a Serious Air Cleaner
Asthma, allergies, COPD and other respiratory issues are serious health problems. VOCs that are released into the air from household cleaners and furniture are serious problems.
Serious air problems require a serious air cleaner. Austin Air might not make the hottest looking machines, but they are serious workhorse air cleaners. The technology behind the filter is solid, the motor is dependable, and they are built to last.
Long after the latest air cleaner trend has passed, your Austin Air Healthmate air cleaner will still be on the job. Now that’s impressive.
