What pops into your mind when you hear the words “air pollution”? Is it grey smog covering the sky? The orange tinge over the city of New Dehli? Perhaps, closer to home – the Aussie 2019/2020 bushfires?

Our natural tendency is to assume that the air is worse outside from what we observe such as smoke, car emissions, fires and more.  So much so that we are generally recommended to stay indoors to escape from the outdoor pollution. Nothing is wrong with escaping such pollution by going indoors however most of us don’t know much about indoor air pollution.

Did you know? Indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.

All our technicians’ homes are equipped with an indoor air quality monitor.

What Is An Indoor Air Quality Monitor?

Surprisingly, IAQ monitors are not very well known at the moment. These devices are created to measure indoor air and provide the user with accurate data any potentially dangerous air qualities. Some monitors can even connect with other smart home devices/hubs or use IFTTT triggers.

Our technicians and their families use uHoo – Link uHoo trial. This IAQ monitor the most comprehensive monitor there is on the market. It has the ability to identify up to 9 different air conditions while also being able to integrate with other smart appliances. Its WIFI capabilities also saves historical data in the cloud and allows you to check your IAQ live on the go.

Why Is An IAQ Monitor Necessary In Your Home?

There are plenty of threats in our homes but there’s little research to educate us on how to limit these threats on our health. In order to make healthy life choices, we must understand the conditions we are dealing with. An IAQ monitor is able to do exactly that.

Similarly, to losing weight, it’s important to identify the condition that our body is. This is where a personal trainer, a general practitioner, and a nutritionist is able to assess your body and provide an exercise and nutrition plan in order to meet your physical goal of losing weight. Without identifying the environment, we live in, there is no way of improving your indoor air quality.
