Austin Air Babys Breath weight
Weight
14 lb (6.4 kg)

Available in bright pink and blue color, Austin Air Babys Breath is a boxy-shaped air purifier built-in premium powder-coated steel housing. At 11 x 16.5 x 11 in and 14 lb weight, the air purifier is far from compact and light as the title implied. Moving around the air purifier is not easy due to the weight and casters are not included by default (additional purchase required). With only a front dial knob controller upfront, there are no modern features that would enhance the air purifier usability e.g. auto mode, air quality monitor and digital screen. On a brighter note, Austin Air Babys Breath comes with the excellent 4-stage filtration, long-life all-in-one filter, 360° progressive Intake System, NRTL (Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory) recognized, CSA (Canadian Standards Association) and CE (Conformité Européenne) approved, no ozone emitted, 30 days money-back guarantee and 5 years warranty on residential use.

Austin Air Babys Breath has an impressive purifying applicable area up to 700 sq. ft. coverage that would be ideal for all types of a bedroom and even living hall to a certain extent. 48-200 cfm airflow tally well with the 3 fan speed and airflow distribution particularly with its 360° progressive intake/ outtake. No CADR figures released however you could still compare with other baby air purifiers' performance and coverage with the table above.

What’s inside count

Austin Air Babys Breath 4-stage filtration is great against chemical vapors, odors, bacteria, and allergy-related irritants. The outer mesh grille and inner pre-filter would first capture large particles e.g. dust, hair; moving on to second stage the medium particulate filter would handle medium-size particles that manage to skip past the initial pre-filter; again on leftover airborne particles the third stage HEGA filter would trap chemical vapors, gases related irritants that would deem harmful to the baby. Finally, the all-important HEPA filter would capture all micron size bacteria and allergens.
Acclaimed Austin Air Babys Breath 4-stage filtration is tremendously efficient when fight against typical and micron size particles, irritants, allergens, bacteria and viruses. Rely upon substantial airflow distribution and wide purifying coverage, Austin Air Babys Breath included filtration is outstanding in wiping out dust, hair, pollen, mold, mildew, fungi and spores.  On dealing odors, fumes and smokes, Austin Air Babys Breath is also outstanding against chemicals, diaper odors, cooking odors, cigarette odors, VOCs, tobacco smokes, radon and ammonia.

Austin Air Babys Breath is not a silent air purifier with 40 - 65 dB noise level particularly at high speed. However, you could greatly reduce the noise by placing the machine further back from the bed due to its wide purifying coverage. Power consumption is standard with an average of 80 W; figures could go down depending on the speed you are constantly in.

^ Replacement filters/ estimated cost
While Austin Air Babys Breath might not be the cheapest among the large air purifier bunch, arguably the highlight of Austin Air Babys Breath is its remarkable filter lifespan that could last up to 5 years. Based on that expect an annual filter replacement cost around $40 which is at least half less of most competitors is charging. A very important point to consider as air purifier would last you for ages. Replacing the filter is not as straightforward like IQAir sliding mechanism as it requires unscrewing the cover nevertheless its a 1 in 5 years task.
