But most people are unaware of air quality where they are
It’s time we began monitoring air quality. People are becoming increasingly focused on healthy lifestyles. Monitoring sleep, calorie intake, steps taken. But many do not realize that our air quality inside the home as well as outside the home is very important to a healthy lifestyle. But until recently it has been expensive to monitor. Plus one air quality monitor can up to now only inform you about one room. Not much use when you are not in that room. Also smartphones do not offer this capability – up to now. So understanding air quality has not been possible up to now.
Air quality can impact:
- Children and academic performance
- Economic outcomes
Surprisingly, even newly renovated homes can have air quality issues as the furnishings can have an impact on reducing air quality. Studies show newly refurbished homes can have poorer air quality.
