By now you should be similar with Austin Air Pet Machine overall design as exact 14.5 x 23 x 14.5 in dimension share across its standard segment. Built with same powder steel coating exterior, the air purifier is heavy at 47 lb although there are 4 casters to enhance the unit mobility. Nothing much to talk about the usability as there is only 1 front dial knob fan speed control. Standard features include includes 4-stage filtration, long-life (5 years) filter lifespan, 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. What you will not find in Austin Air Pet Machine is air quality sensor, auto mode, timer, and filter change indicator.

What’s inside count

Let's jump straight to Austin Air Pet Machine highlights. It features a unique 15 lbs. Impregnated Activated Carbon and Zeolite that is excellent in eliminating ammonia and pet odors. Other standard filters of Austin Air Pet Machine include Large Particle Pre-filter that works with the outer mesh filter to capture dust and pet hair, medium pre-filter that capture smaller particles and 60 sq.ft. True Medical Grade HEPA Filter that captures micron-size particles such as pet dander, mold, dust mites.
Austin Air Pet Machine 4-stage filtration is vastly efficient when pit against large and tiny pollutants, allergens, irritants, viruses and bacteria. Powered by immense airflow input/ output and wide purifying coverage, Austin Air Pet Machine combined filtration is terrific in eliminating dust, hair, pet hair, pet dander, dust mites, pollen, mold and mildew.  On handling smokes and odors, Austin Air Pet Machine is also terrific against chemicals, odors, cooking smell, fire, VOCs, tobacco smokes, cigarette, vapor, radon and ammonia.

Keep it down

Noise level
40 - 65 dB
Austin Air Pet Machine power consumption
Power consumption
132 W
Noise level is considerably loud at the most speed between 40 - 65 dB. The lack of sleep mode or auto mode means there is no way to further reduce the noise autonomously especially during night time. For bedroom use, your best bet is to place the unit as far away from the bed to alleviate the sound. 132 W power consumption is again standard across its range.

^ Replacement filters/ estimated cost
Austin Air Pet Machine is the third most expensive unit in its series (below Bedroom machine and HealthMate Plus). On that sense, you should also consider HealthMate as it also comes with 4-stage filtration with decent odor and gas filtration. Nevertheless, if you are looking for an air purifier with practical features and modern techie stuff, look elsewhere. As for filter annual maintenance, Austin Air Pet Machine is probably the champion in its class thanks to the undisputed 5 years all-in-one filter lifespan. Replacing the filter is not easy but its a one in a few years thing.
