Awair came together with a consortium of leading indoor air quality (IAQ) organizations to give you an actionable roadmap to improving indoor air quality and meeting building decarbonization and climate resiliency goals.
Awair now provides secure, centralized, and easy user access with the new Single Sign-On (SSO) feature for the Awair Business app and Awair Dashboard.
Since indoor air quality (IAQ) is closely tied to productivity, we are bringing you five ways to improve your home environment.
As Awair continues to make enhancements in security, SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance is the next phase in our process. The final report will be available during the first week in April.
Clean indoor air quality is not simply a luxury in healthy homes and commercial spaces. Tenants expect their day-to-day living and working conditions to be pollutant-free. While Awair Omni can help you address COVID-19 cleaning protocols and building safety codes, it is now being demanded by tenants. “Why,” might you ask?
We asked our Awair product experts for trends in IAQ in 2022. This is our short list.
Let’s set the scene: You want better insight into the indoor environment so you can stay informed about the health of your building and, more importantly, the health of your employees. You are excited to finally have a continuous, real-time air quality monitoring solution at your fingertips where you can easily track trends over time and make improvements. But, have you considered who has access to this data besides you and how secure your systems are?
Is the indoor air quality at universities impacting student health and academic performance? Unfortunately, there’s a good chance that the answer is yes. A big reason for this is the widespread presence of mold in classrooms.
There’s a reason why desks near windows are coveted office real estate. We’re biologically hardwired to prefer places with lots of light. Monitoring light intensity ensures we know there’s enough light to work effectively, and has the potential for huge energy savings.
In offices and schools, irritating noise can come from all kinds of sources: air conditioning, ringing phones, traffic, nearby construction and – most especially – from other people’s conversations. Ambient noise can make it hard for employees and school children to concentrate and get things done. Productivity can plummet Noise can affect the health and productivity of your workspace.

Although background noise can drown out distractions, too much noise can cause stress and undermine short term memory, reading comprehension, and willingness to help or engage with others.
Ever noticed a yellow smog or wildfire haze? That dirty, smoky air is made of particle pollution. Overwhelming evidence shows that particle pollution – especially the smallest particles – can increase the risk of heart disease, lung cancer, and asthma attacks and can interfere with the growth and work of the lungs.
The smells we associate with newness and cleanliness — a fresh coat of paint, a new carpet, lemon-scented disinfectant — are not as harmless as they may seem. These odors are caused by the release of gases called volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in many common building materials and household products.
