Medical Grade Air Purification for Schools

Hurry! ESSER III funding for clean air in schools is expiring soon!



Why Clean Air in Classrooms is Necessary

Air purification is an investment in the health of students, as well as academic achievement!


Cognitive Impact of IAQ on Students

Researchers have found that young children exposed to particulate matter scored lower on IQ tests—losing as many as 2.63 IQ points on those exams for every two micrograms per cubic meter of pollution exposure.[1] Additionally, students in schools with poor IAQ tend to have lower attention, test scores, grades, and overall academic performance.[2] In fact, the benefits of running high-quality air purifiers is on par with reducing class size by 30%.[3]

Health Impact of IAQ on Students

Viral infections such as COVID-19, influenza, and RSV are common in schools with poor ventilation and can impact public health and education. Additionally, childhood asthma has been linked to exposure to indoor air pollution according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).[4] What’s more, even short-term exposure to small particulate matter pollution has been found to increase psychiatric-related emergency room visits for kids.[5]

Teachers Speak Out About Austin Air in Classrooms!



The Best Type of Air Purifier,

According to the EPA

According to an extensive review by the EPA, the most effective air purification technology is a combination of HEPA and activated carbon -- which is exactly what Austin Air uses. In fact, our purifiers use 60 square feet of true, medical-grade HEPA and up to 15 lbs. of activated carbon. That's more filter material than anyone else in the industry!

The "See Air Differently" School Assembly


"The adults are all complementing you guys for the assembly message. The content was extremely appropriate for our students and our community. I can’t thank you enough for what will be a once in a lifetime experience!"

-McCall Emerick, 6th grade science teacher at Acmetonia School in Chestwick, PA


When your school chooses Austin Air purifiers, you not only get high-quality, medical-grade HEPA and carbon air purification, but you also get a FREE virtual school assembly featuring medical doctors and professional athletes like Jordan Poyer, Griffin Jax, Zack Moss, and Heather Mitts to educate students on the importance of respiratory health. The assembly includes messaging about how to maintain healthy lungs, environmental pollutants, and the dangers of smoking and vaping. 
In this fun pre-recorded video, charismatic DJ Milk tackles a serious topic in a lighthearted and engaging way, and challenges middle and high school students to see air differently.

What is Sick School Syndrome?

Sick Building Syndrome (or as it applies to schools, Sick School Syndrome), is a condition affecting occupants of a polluted building. Occupants typically develop headaches and respiratory problems, among other symptoms, as a result of breathing in polluted indoor air.  


The Most Common Sources of Airborne Pollutants In Schools





Classrooms have little or no ventilation, and so viruses and bacteria accumulate without a way to escape. Other airborne contaminants in the classroom include harmful chemicals and fumes from adhesives, paint, science experiments, and harsh cleaners.



The faculty lounge, where teachers and staff spend time in close proximity, often eating without masks, means effective air filtration is a must.



Noxious fumes from printers and photocopiers, as well as dust, bacteria, and viruses, are common pollutants found in school libraries and common areas.



School restrooms are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and odors. Effective air filtration helps remove odors and other airborne contaminants, creating a clean, safe space for students, teachers, and staff.



A busy cafeteria, where large groups of students and staff spend time together, eating without masks, can be a high-risk environment for the transmission of COVID-19 and other viruses. Other contaminants in the cafeteria include NO2 from gas appliances and chemicals and VOCs from cleaning products.



Perhaps the most dangerous space in the school, without effective air filtration, is the nurse’s room. This is an extremely high-risk environment for viral and bacterial transmission.



If your school is close to a busy road or the school parking lot, toxic emissions from the school bus and other vehicles can find their way indoors. Without effective air filtration, these chemicals and gases can have a serious impact on the health of students and staff.
