Did you know that Awair’s indoor air quality (IAQ) monitors use state-of-the-art technology to measure air quality factors that impact your overall health and well-being? By paying attention to your IAQ, you can reduce allergy symptoms, improve your sleep quality, and feel better anywhere you spend time indoors. When air quality factors are collectively measured together, an Awair Score appears on the app ranging from 0 to 100. Zero represents poor air quality and 100 indicates healthy air quality.
For Awair Element in the home, five factors are examined, including temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide (CO2), TVOCs (chemicals), and PM2.5 (fine particulate matter). For Awair Omni in schools and businesses, there are two additional factors monitored: light (lux) and noise (dBA). At the enterprise level, Omni’s sensors are RESET Grade B certified (building grade) and suitable for both commercial and residential applications.
When choosing your partner in air quality monitoring, it’s important to ensure you are getting the best technologies at the right price, including longevity and maintenance. Awair’s technology uses superior pre-calibrated sensors that go through batch calibration and testing during manufacturing. After sensor deployment, continuous automatic background calibration reduces the need for ongoing maintenance and the replacement of sensors every two years.
Awair’s goal is for sensors to stay running so the focus is on the data versus the hardware. We want to free up our customers’ time as they work to find energy savings and reassure building occupants. Ultimately, we collaborate with suppliers to identify and provide the best performance for the long haul without the added cost.

The holidays are filled with lots of fun activities from shopping in well-decorated stores to attending corporate parties. With increased awareness on staying safe while indoors, we want to help reduce your exposure to airborne infections and pollutants. We realize there may be work events that you want to attend or people that you need to shop for, but there are a few simple ways to improve your indoor air quality (IAQ) so you can celebrate accordingly.
In December, I joined Awair as a key advisor and board member. I first became interested in the company after meeting its founders and hearing about their dedication to studying and improving indoor air quality. While they started the company to improve their children’s lives, their products can help anyone measure indoor air quality in real time. To me, that creates an enormous opportunity to improve people’s lives everywhere.
In the last decade, green building certifications have grown popular with developers, architects, designers, property managers, and building occupants alike. Below, we’ve compiled seven reasons why going green can be a worthwhile investment.
