People are using Awair everyday, constantly improving their quality of life and overall well-being. Ken, one of our valued Awair users, recently synced up with us to explain how Awair has changed his life.
“Well, I live and work out of my basement unit apartment located in the great city of Chicago. I’ve purchased a heat exchanger, a heat recovery exchanger, a heat recovery ventilator to manage my volatile organic compounds (VOC’s ) and CO2, as well as carbon monoxide and humidity sensors. So as you can tell, air quality is very important to me. Also, I’m really into IoT devices, and Awair seemed like an awesome device aesthetically as well as functionally for my home.”
“I was looking for a smart device to improve my home’s air situation. There were companies like Foobot and Netamo that caught my attention, but none of them had the all inclusive capabilities that I was looking for like Awair offers.”
“My Awair is placed in the middle of my home between two bedrooms and one bathroom. I actually purchased a few plants that were recommended to me by Awair to improve my home’s air quality, and they have definitely helped! I’ve also used it in the past to see if my kitchen air vents were properly functioning.”
“There are so many wonderful aspects that I love about Awair. I’m really into knowing my home’s VOC and CO2 levels, and Awair does a wonderful job presenting that to me. I think the Awair Score is an awesome feature too, since it gives me an overall rating for my home’s air quality. It’s also great that Awair can gather its data regardless of whether or not my smartphone is on. Obviously it’s a beautifully designed product, and I’m even keeping the box since I like it so much. Oh, and thank you for the kind note you sent with my Awair! It’s nice to receive that sort of customer attention.”
“I had a minor issue when it came to connecting my Awair to my Wi-Fi, but got it to work pretty quickly. Also, as someone who studied Physics in college, I’m really into data and information, so I think it would be cool to add more data capabilities, such as exporting. Lastly, It will be really great if Awair can integrate with Smartthings platform. Overall, I’m very pleased with the product, and can’t wait to see its progression.”

Northern California was just plagued by record-breaking wildfires that covered over one million acres, destroying thousands of homes. As ash from the fires began to fill the sky, many nearby residents, including co-founder of Mother.ly, Jill Koziol, began to worry their families could also be affected by the unhealthy air spreading through the area.
If you’ve ever listened to the podcast 99 Percent Invisible, then you know how transformative good design can be — and how infrequently it gets the attention it deserves. At Awair, our design philosophy has been a catalyst for our continued growth. In honor of San Francisco Design Week, we wanted to highlight the San Francisco designers who helped to create and elevate the Awair brand.
This spring we’ve been exploring how our allergies are affected by the air we breathe. Allergies are a common scapegoat this time of year--they’re usually at the center of blame for our congestion and scratchy throats. But how much do we really know about allergies, in the first place?
