The World Health Organization and the CDC
have both recommended HEPA air filtration to reduce the risk of COVID-1 9 indoors.
Many Indoor environments do not provide adequate ventilation or filtration. Using a portable HEPA air purifier is a cost-effective way to ensure contaminants are removed from the air. Austin Air’s Medical Grade HEPAtechnology is certified to remove 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns and up to 95% of all particles larger than 0.1 microns and are highly effective at removing airborne viruses and bacteria as well as other airborne allergens.
A study from Frankfurt, Germany investigated ways to reduce the risk of Covid-19 in schools. They found that running a HEPA air purifier in classrooms reduces aerosol concentrations by more than 90% in under 30 minutes.
In a separate study from January 2016, a number of air purifiers were installed in classrooms, close to the site of the Aliso Canyon gas leak in California. The aim was to clean up the air after the disaster. Within just a few months of installation, children’s test results in Math and English improved significantly, in the same way that it would if class sizes were reduced by a third.
Over the last thirty years, we have worked with the US Government, FEMA and the American Red Cross during some of America’s most challenging environmental emergencies, including 9-11, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, the 2015 SoCal gas leak and in recent years, as we experienced the worst wildfires on record.
We have shipped thousands of HEPA air purifiers to schools this year, helping them keep staff and children safe. Austin Air can help you create an indoor environment that is clean, safe and free from contaminants.
Clean Air is essential for a healthy home or office. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, most “indoor environments” have up to 100 times more pollutants than outdoor air.
