When a company chooses to go offshore to manufacture a product, our economy suffers through lost jobs and the American consumer is short-changed. Cost benefits are rarely passed on to you, but the product you buy is often of lesser quality.
Austin Air has made a conscious decision to employ Americans by maintaining manufacturing facilities in the United States. We believe every company has a responsibility to carefully examine the social, economic and moral costs of sending jobs offshore. American workers still build the best products, and corporations can still make a healthy profit manufacturing domestically.
Manufactured in the United States, Austin Air further minimizes its energy consumption when processing, packaging and transporting products to you. We’re committed to operating within policies that lessen our carbon footprint and promote clean air for generations to come.
After pioneering and leading the air cleaning industry for more than 30 years, Austin Air maintains the largest air cleaner manufacturing facility in the world while manufacturing everything in-house – from your filter to metal forming, powder-coating and final assembly, every Austin Air cleaner is proudly made in the USA.
Each Austin Air cleaner must meet stringent government and independent third-party testing standards, with tests designed to protect you by ensuring the products you buy work as claimed. Austin Air takes no shortcuts and never submits its products for private testing to guarantee a desired result.
Extensive product tests on flow rate, flow design, and removal of vapors, gases and sub-micron particles have been performed by Battelle Laboratories, one of the world’s most respected testing laboratories for the Army Corp of Engineers at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center. 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. We were also selected by FEMA and The Red Cross to address the serious air quality concerns in post 9/11 New York.
Austin Air has removed risk from the purchase process, standing by products with a five-year warranty on all materials and craftsmanship. We also offer a full five-year pro-rated warranty on each filter.
The engineers at Austin Air concentrated on developing the most critical component of the air cleaner first: the filter.
Austin Air’s powerful 360-degree intake system draws air into all sides to maximize efficiency and deliver purified air faster.
Every minute, 250 cubic feet of air is processed by a four-stage filter that progressively removes harmful contaminants from the atmosphere.
This process enables Austin Air cleaners to:
Achieve the highest levels of performance.
Attain superior air flow rates.
Sustain a longer filter life (five years under normal residential use).
Increase the life expectancy 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 from the air without creating by-products such as ozone. In every Austin Air cleaner, you’ll 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 percent of all particulates as small as 0.3 microns and 95 percent of particulates 0.1 microns and smaller.
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 like Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and other noxious gases.
Unlike electrostatic-precipitators or ionic generators, Austin Air cleaners do not emit by-products like toxic ozone.
Many families rely on their Austin Air cleaner to control serious respiratory conditions including asthma. Even the smallest trace of irritant, ozone being one of the most toxic, has severe effects. Had those individuals chosen an electrostatic precipitator or ionic generator, they would still be suffering unnecessarily.
Built with integrity. Made in America. As the original maker of high-end filtration systems, Austin Air pairs heart with science to devise the most effective, durable and trusted air purification products on the market.
