Safety in the Air

We all want our homes to be safe and protected for our families. Wether kids are in the home or not, we want to be breathing in good, clean air.

It helps us feel better.

It helps us breath better.

Air quality affects a lot of health factors you may not have even thought about.

Allergies, asthma, focus, sleep quality, skin health, and your overall health.

My family is loving our new Awair air quality monitor.

The Awair monitor tracks invisible, fine dust and chemicals in your air to give you personalized recommendations to help you stay safe and healthy.

Using five key factors that determine air quality, the Awair monitor will give you peace of mind. Measuring the Temperature, humidity, CO2, chemicals, and fine dust, this monitor will tell you the good and the bad of the air you’re breathing.

Temperature

Temperature makes all the difference for comfort and mood.

Humidity

To much or too little moisture can lead to cold flu symptoms and risk for toxic mold.

CO2

Indoor exposure to carbon dioxide can impart productivity and decision-making.

Chemicals

Toxic chemicals can be found in everyday materials. They cause skin and respiratory

Fine Dust (PM 2.5)

Invisible dust can be absorbed into your blood and trigger health problems like asthma, allergies, and heart failure. PM2.5 are tiny dust particles that can’t be seen by the naked eye. They are able to bypass your nose and throat and be absorbed by your lungs and bloodstream. Fine Dust has been known to cause coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, irritation of the eyes/nose/throat, and can trigger asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory problems. 

The little light in the top right corner shows you, by color, the Awair score. Using a color-coded scale from 0-100 you can know by the color wether your home has poor air quality (0) or high air quality (100).

The Awair monitor links to an app on your phone where you can track all these factors. The app shows improvements over time and allows you to see, in graph form, your air quality hour by hour, day by day.

There are two small buttons located on the back of the monitor which allow you to see the actual number reading of each of the key factors. The monitor also has an option to show the time, which I personally love.

Remember that low score I mentioned a little earlier, well here’s the end to my story.

After reading some tips in my Awair app, I remembered that I hadn’t changed our furnace air filter in awhile.

Sure enough, it had been four months since I had changed the filter. Whoops!

So after changing the filter our Awair score stayed at a consistent number – 80 on average!

This was enough to get me on board. It also helped me trust our air filter system – they really work!

Get yourself an Awair air quality monitor; you won’t regret it. And go change your furnace air filter; its probably been way too long since you’ve done it last.

Why breath dirty air when you really don’t have to?
