Outfit Your Baby’s Room with an Austin Air Room Air Purifier

 

Congratulations on your impending addition to the family! We imagine you have your hands full, getting the new baby’s room ready for its future occupant. While you’ve probably thought a lot about the colors of the walls, the safety of the bed and the functionality of the changing table, we strongly suggest that you think about another item that your new baby’s room needs: an Austin Air room air purifiers. Here are our reasons:

  • Austin Air has a room air purifier just for babies. The Baby’s Breath Air Purifier is specifically designed with your new child in mind. This purifier offers the highest level of protection for your new baby’s lungs because it filters out three types of air pollutants: particles (molds, dust, pollen), gases and odors (acids, ammonia, and the odors from those cleaning solutions you need to use in order to keep your baby’s room clean) and micro-organisms (bacteria and viruses).
  • The Baby’s Breath air purifier will quickly remove all those nasty chemicals and particles left over from the remodeling, painting and carpeting that you did to prepare your baby’s room.
  • Baby’s Breath has an unusual function amongst air purifiers on the market: it makes the gentle, soothing sound that your baby heard for nine months while he or she was still in the womb. To you it sounds like a soft, white noise, but to your baby it is the clinically proven sound of “home” that will help your child fall asleep more easily and sleep soundly.
  • Like everything else must be in your new baby’s room, the Baby’s Breath air purifier is easy to clean. Austin Air’s purifiers come with a pre-filter which protects the main filter and just needs to be cleaned with a vacuum once a month.
  • The filter package itself is good for five years, which means that it will outlast many of the items in your baby’s room! There is also a five year warranty on all parts and labor, because there are no cheap plastic parts in this machine (unlike many of the toys your child will break over the years!).
  • The Baby’s Breath comes in two colors—pink and blue—so that you can purchase the color that best matches the color scheme of your baby’s room.

So contact us and order a Baby’s Breath today. With this air purifier’s clean air and soothing sounds, your baby will thrive in her or his new home!

Improve the Indoor Air Quality in the Nursery

Baby's Breath Air Purifer

It’s an unfortunate downside of the more energy efficient homes that we have today: air is trapped, locking pollutants inside. In fact, the National Safety Council (NSC) says that “indoor air often contains higher concentrations of hazardous pollutants than outdoor air.” Worse, it can be hard to tell if your indoor air quality is adversely affecting your health. The symptoms produced by poor indoor air can mimic colds and allergies, leading to things like headaches, tiredness, dizziness, and nausea. In can even increase the likelihood of asthma, breathing disorders, and cancer.

The EPA lists a number of causes for toxic indoor air, including cleaning products, second-hand smoke, and even pesticides. Heaters can also contribute, which is why it’s so important to have a high-quality furnace filter to purify the air that is circulating in your home.

Of course, we all want to breathe clean air, but when you have a  baby in the house, it becomes that much more important. The NSC states that “children breathe in 50 percent more air per pound of body weight than adults.” The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine recently concluded that 65 percent of asthma cases among elementary school-age children could be prevented by controlling exposure to indoor allergens and that by controlling biological contaminants such as dust mites and cat allergens, asthma cases could be reduced by 55 to 60 percent.

There are several ways to improve the air quality in the nursery. Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter and use it regularly. Wash bedding and baby’s clothing in hot water to cut down on dust mites. Dust frequently. Keep pets out of the baby’s room. And, of course, don’t smoke in the house–even if the baby isn’t around.

Sometimes it can feel like keeping things clean is an uphill battle, so you may want to consider a little extra help.  Austin Air Baby’s Breath Air Purifier removes sub-micron particles, noxious gases and chemicals from the air that you and your kids breathe. It can treat up to 700 square feet, and uses a HEPA filter & 6.5 lbs of solid activated carbon and zeolite, cleaning the air not just of  dust but also of odors, gases, viruses, bacteria, and mold.

If you’re interested, contact us to learn more about the Austin Air Baby’s Breath Air Purifier and our other options for helping to keep the air in your home as clean as possible.

Indoor Air Quality: What To Expect When You’re Expecting

Image

You’ve picked out the perfect crib. The changing table you found matches perfectly. And the stuffed bear is the cutest thing ever — your new baby’s going to love him, he’s adorable.

No room in the house gets more attention, care and planning than the new baby’s nursery. But the biggest part of the room is often overlooked: the air itself. Many new parents forget that their newborn is just starting out in the world, and is brand-new at everything — even breathing. Here’s a couple of ways to make it easier on her, and to help you breathe easier, too.

  • Change your furnace filter, right now. No, really, I mean right now. Finish this article if you want, but that’s all the longer you should wait. When the new baby arrives, you’ll have exactly zero time to deal with anything else for a good little while — e.g., until she goes to college. And even when the baby starts sleeping (it does happen eventually) you’ll be hard pressed to make a special trip to the hardware store. Here’s a tip: pick up an electrostatic “permanent” furnace filter sized for your furnace. They install just like the disposable kind, only instead of replacing them, you just rinse them and put them back in. The fact that they happen to improve indoor air quality much, much better than a regular filter is icing on the cake.
  • Clear the air in the nursery. A good whole-house filter is great, but baby’s room needs a little extra. An in-room air purifier is an excellent “final stage” for cleaning the air surrounding your newborn. Austin Air makes a full-spectrum air purifier called “Baby’s Breath” that treats a 700 square foot space effortlessly and even comes in pink or light blue for boys or girls! The purifier will take care of molds, pollen, bacteria, viruses and even gasses like ammonia. As an added bonus, during normal operation the machine creates a perfect gentle “white noise” sound — the same sound, similar to what they hear in the womb, that every seasoned parent knows is practically essential for newborns. That is, if you ever want them to fall asleep.

For all your indoor air quality needs — for the baby’s room, and beyond — feel free to contact us!
