Air Purifiers and Coronavirus

Over recent weeks as COVID-19 continues to spread to countries across the world, we are all concerned about our health and the health of our loved ones, particularly if they are elderly or have on going health problems.

As this global crisis unfolds, we have noticed a huge increase in demand for our products. And it is clear many people have lots of questions and concerns. As we face the challenges ahead, we thought we’d take this opportunity to explain how our units can help.

Do Austin Air Purifiers protect against COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new strain of virus that as yet, remains untested. However, the HEPA technology used in our filters is clinically proven to remove 95% of all pollutants as small as 0.1 micron. The COVID-19 virus is larger than this, at 0.12 microns in size. So we are confident our air purifiers are effectively removing the vast majority of the virus when it is airborne.

However, it is important to mention, that as well as airborne transmission, the virus can also be spread via surfaces and human contact. Therefore, it is vital that we regularly wash our hands and practice social distancing.

Which unit should I buy?

If COVID-19 is your main concern, we would recommend the Austin Air HealthMate or the HealthMate Plus. Both models use HEPA technology and are effective at removing 95% of all airborne viruses, as well as everyday pollutants such as dust, dander and allergens. The HealthMate Plus model gives you added protection against chemicals and VOC’s.

    Regards Julie

    • Hi Julie,

      For a room (or studio) of the size you describe 5m x 5m or 25 square meters we wold suggest the HealthMate JR series.

      Specifically we would recommend the Allergy Machine JR as it has a large pre-filter media stage. Additionally the Allergy machine contains military cloth as the final stage that will handle anything that gets past the HEPA filter or the medium secondary filter. This machine has four stages.

      This machine will easily clean a room of 65 square meters so you will be well protected. Additionally you will not need to replace the filter for four to five years.

      The price is $950.00AUD

      PLEASE let me know if you would like to order the machine and I will create a link for you. We are kin the process of inclufding GST in that $950.00 price so I would not like it if you were charged that additional 10%. And yes, we ship all over Australia – shipping is not included.

      Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask!

      Kind regards and happy Easter!
