What Is A HEPA Air Cleaner?
HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter is a specialized type of air filter that captures tiny airborne particles that pass through it. It was first developed during the second world war as a way to control the spread of airborne radioactive material.
A HEPA air cleaner really is a simple machine that uses a motor to continuously draw air
through a HEPA air filter. The air passes through the filter which traps tiny airborne particles. The filtered air is then exhausted back into the room. HEPA air cleaners can be integrated into the heating and cooling system of a building (such as a furnace), however, the most
popular HEPA air cleaners are small portable units that can be plugged into any standard wall outlet.
To be considered a true HEPA filter, over 99.98 percent of all floating material that measures over 0.3 micrometers or greater must be blocked by the filter.
If an air cleaner does not meet or exceed
this standard then it is NOT HEPA. There are a lot of air cleaners on the market
that are HEPA type.
How The Austin Air Allergy Machine Works
The Austin Air Allergy Machine works by continuously pulling in the surrounding air via a motor-driven filtration unit, filtering the air through
first the HEGA cloth filter and then the medical-grade HEPA filter. The filtered air
is then pushed back into the surrounding room.

Austin Air Allergy Machine to address indoor air quality concerns for government offices in New York following the 9/11 terrorist attack
Why Use a HEPA Air Cleaner?
According to the
Mayo Clinic, choosing an air filter with a HEPA
filter is an important step in allergy-proofing a home. One of the best ways to prevent the discomfort of allergies and breathing disorders like asthma is by controlling exposure to allergens that trigger uncomfortable symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes and nasal congestion.
The standard-sized Austin Air Allergy Machine is recommended for rooms of up to
1,500 square feet while the smaller Allergy Machine Jr. is effective for use in smaller areas (up to
700 square feet) such as bedrooms and home offices.
