Austin Air’s Corporate History
Richard Taylor founded Austin Air Corporation in 1990. His wife suffered from severe breathing problems, which led Mr. Taylor to create a hospital “clean room” atmosphere for her; thus the birth of the filter. The company is now the largest air cleaner producer in the world and located in Austin, Texas. It produces every piece of the free-standing air cleaning machine, including the filters.
Austin Air Filter’s Products
Replacement Furnace Mount Filters
Filters are mounted on Austin air cleaning machines rather than on a furnace or air conditioning unit. The normal range of effective air purification is 1500 sq ft. The replacement filters are built to last for five years and contain carbon, zeolite and true medical High Efficiency Particulate Air Filtration, known as HEPA. HEPA filtration must adhere to a minimum standard of eliminating any particle 0.3 micron in diameter.
Some also have potassium iodide. They also make a “pre-filter” which is installed on the outside of the main filter to trap the largest particulates first.
