Air Purifier for Bird Dander–7 Reasons to Choose
the Austin Air HealthMate JR HEGA Air Purifier for Bird Dander
Using the Austin Air HealthMate JR HEGA air purifier for bird dander is the most effective, economical, and environmentally friendly way to consistently eliminate the dander that your bird isconstantly producing. Here are 5 really good reasons that make it a good choice.
1. Keeps your bird healthy. Miners use to take canaries into the mines to help determine when the air quality was declining. When the canaries died, it was an indication to humans that the air was no longer safe. Thank goodness birds are no longer used this way, but all birds still have incredibly sensitive respiratory systems, and constantly filtering the air that your bird breathes will reduce respiratory infections, result in a healthier bird, and will do much to increase your bird’s life span. If your bird is kept in a more central location such as a hall or living room area that opens to other rooms, a greater cleaning capacity is needed and we recommend the Pet Dander Air Purifier which cleans 1500 square feet.
Constantly removing airborne pollutants also lessens the chance of your bird, and possibly you and your family, being infected with Psittacosis. Sometimes referred to as Bird Fancier’s Lung (BFL), all species of birds are susceptible to it. One of the ways the disease can spread is from an infected bird’s dried fecal material that becomes airborne and is then inhaled or ingested. And often the infected bird shows no symptoms. Whereas nothing can guarantee that your bird won’t be affected, constant removal of 99,997 out of every 10,000 airborne pollutants will surely reduce the chances.
2. HEPA Technology. Because it is a high efficiency particle arresting (HEPA) air purifier, it is designed to remove particles as small as .3 microns. Dander size ranges from 12-100 microns. By selecting the HealthMate JR HEGA which has the capacity to remove particles that are even as small as .3 microns, you will insure that the dander is effectively removed. HEPA technology also means that for every 10,000 particles of bird dander that is released in your air, the HealthMate JR will remove 9, 997 particles of dander–removing all but 3 particles!
In addition to HEPA technology, the third stage of filtration in the JR HEGA air purifier sends the air through a filter made of carbon cloth. This gives an added level of efficiency for removing airborne particles like bird dander.
3. Designed for 24 hour coverage. Since bird dander is a constant, you need an air purifier that is designed to work constantly as well so that the air in your space is constantly filtered and remains fresh and free from dander. The HealthMate JR HEGA is designed to run 24 hours every day for only pennies a day. It uses only 60 watts of power an hour on its highest setting.
4. Incredibly Durable.The HealthMate JR HEGA is constructed with all steel parts, and has a baked-on powder coat finish to prevent out gassing. It carries a 5 year warranty, and we at PurerAir.com know they last longer because of the replacement filters we sell for units with serial number that date them prior to 1995!
