Meet Sarah Gudeman. She's the Director of Sustainability for Morrissey Engineering. In her review video, she talks about Awair Omni and how she uses it in her every day work for indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring. It measures several key environmental factors, including temperature, humidity, CO2, TVOCs, PM2.5, noise, and light. It's an approachable product for anyone, not just engineers or building professionals. Check out this webpage for more information on how to use the product in your organization to keep employees healthy and safe.
"Other things I like about the Awair Omni is that there's a couple of different configurations," added Sarah Gudeman, Director of Sustainability at Morrissey Engineering. "You can have it just freestanding on a desk with a little kickstand or you can do a wall mount installation with a couple different brackets. I also really appreciate if you're doing USB power, you can power it off the back or off the bottom of the unit (if you do go with a wall mounting configuration). Just the way everything's packaged is really nice. There's a little level sensor that comes with the in-wall mount. They give you different mounting devices like the cord is nicely designed and matches the sensor, which surprisingly is something that sometimes isn't really well done on other units." It's an intuitive product that is easy to show clients and give people access to for their own education and ongoing monitoring, which is really good."
Getting your family ready for the new school year can be bittersweet, and as you drop your child off for their first day of school, it’s easy to feel anxious about whether or not you’ve prepared them for success in the upcoming year. Even if you were able to get them everything on their back-to-school shopping list, you know your child’s ability to learn and grow depends on what happens once they enter the classroom--but what if it turned out their classroom was hindering their productivity and overall health?Unhealthy classrooms are much more common than we realize, and one of the main culprits is hiding in plain sight: the quality of air children are breathing in their classrooms. Many of us take for granted that the air we’re breathing is healthy and safe since it’s not something we can typically see–but this isn’t the case, especially for air that’s indoors. In fact, indoor air can be 5x more polluted than outdoors, which can affect allergies, asthma, our ability to concentrate, the quality of our sleep, and more. Particularly “unhealthy” or “bad” air can even cause a variety of health problems, including dry skin and eyes, coughing and sneezing, headaches, hives, and nausea.
