Austin Air Hepa Air Filter Replacement--Choosing A Color!

When you're ready to order your Austin Air replacement filter from, you'll notice a drop-down menu that gives a choice of colors for the filter--light-colored, and dark-colored. If you're like me you'll think, "Why do they offer a choice of color for something that won't show, and why should I care?"

Well, the truth of the matter is that the color choice is for the prefilter which is the soft material inside the purifier that is between the outer wall of the purifier and the actual filter. Because your Austin Air purifier has small holes on all 4 sides under the control panel, you will, in fact, be able to see the color of the prefilter.

So if you have a sandstone, white, or silver purifier, be sure to order the light-colored prefilter. If you have a black purifier, be sure to order the dark-colored prefilter. The Baby's Breath purifier comes in pink and blue, but the prefilter only comes in white.

So when we suggest that you vacuum the outside of the purifier to remove the large particles such as dust, dog hair, etc., you will be using your vacuum to pull these particles through the small holes of your purifier and away from the prefilter--a prefilter that will blend very nicely when you choose the correct color. Hope this sheds some light on the situation!
