Our filters are designed to last for up to 5 years under normal residential use, far longer than any other filter on the market. Q Where should I place the unit for maximum effectiveness?
We always recommend that if you only have one unit, place it in the bedroom when you sleep. You can move the unit around the house during the day, but always ensure it is in the bedroom at night. Q Where should I place it in the bedroom? Your Austin Air Purifier can be placed anywhere in the bedroom, including corners, but must be at least four inches from the wall to give consistent effective results. Q How much space does the air purifier effectively clean?There are many factors that influence how much space a unit can clean. Corridors, ceiling height and the shape of a room can all affect air flow. As a general rule, we suggest using a standard size model for larger spaces and a junior size model for single rooms or small studio apartments. Q What would cause a filter to fill up in less than 5 years? Using the air purifier in an area with lots of pets, new carpeting, paint fumes, heavy smoking, urban pollution, etc. Will diminish the filter's life. Q Does the unit produce any harmful substances? Austin Air Purifiers do not produce ozone, ions or negative ions.
Q Does the Austin Air purifier require any special maintenance? Wipe the unit with a damp cloth when dusting your home and periodically vacuum the four sides of the outside screen with the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner.
This is the only regular maintenance required for the air purifier. Q How much electricity is required to run the standard air purifier? Austin Air Purifiers use an ordinary 120 volt outlet. Maximum draw is about 147 watts on the high setting or 1 cent per hour, average cost.Q Is the air purifier noisy to operate? Depending on the fan setting used, the noise level ranges from less than 50 to 66 decibels. The noise you hear is the fan as it circulates the air around the room.
In order for an air purifier to be effective, it needs to push the clean air back into the room. Quiet air purifiers are not as effective as they don't move the air. To clean a room quickly, we recommend the highest setting, after a short time the unit can be turned down to a lower setting. When on the lowest setting there is very little noise. It is worth mentioning that ambient noise helps to block other noises and distractions that can interrupt sleep.
Many of our customers find that after a short time, they can't sleep unless their Austin is running. Q Does the air purifier have any plastic parts? The only plastic components in the air purifier are the fan blade, wheels or feet, and the control dial on the front of the unit. Q Why is there no indicator light, to signify the filter needs replacing? Indicator lights only really indicate the length of time a unit has been used.
This is not an accurate reflection of when to change the filter. If a unit is used in a heavily contaminated environment, the filter needs to be changed earlier than it would in a normal residential setting. Q How did you determine that filters will last as long as 5 years?The quantity of Carbon, Zeolite, and True Medical Grade HEPA used in our units establishes the life of the filter. Q What type of testing and approvals did your unit pass? Austin Air products are CSA Approved. Q How do you change the filter? Is it difficult to change? It's fairly easy to change the filter. You'll need a large trash bag, work gloves, and a Philips screwdriver. Austin Air Standard Plus Replacement Filter Healthmate Plus Black FR450A.
