Awair Air Quality Monitor Reviewed

When we think of pollution, we tend to think of smog and environmental toxins outside the safety of our homes. Unfortunately, indoor air pollution is a real concern. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is even possible for indoor air to be more polluted than outdoor air. Unless you work outdoors, research has shown that most Americans spend 90% of  their days indoors, whether at home or in the office. Indoor air pollution can be caused by tobacco products, building materials, upholstery, carpeting, cleaning products, central heating and cooling systems, excessive moisture, and even outdoor pollutants entering the building. Health effects to exposure can include eye and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, and in the long-term, even cancer and respiratory diseases. Unless you plan to spend the rest of your life living in a tent, you're going to need to learn how to manage indoor air pollution and improve the air quality of your home and office for your own well-being and that of your loved ones.

While there are certainly changes you can make such as not smoking indoors and changing cleaning products, you won't know how effective your changes are without hard data about your air quality. Additionally, having a system in place to constantly monitor the air quality of your home will provide you with peace of mind. Never again will you find yourself lying awake at night wondering if the air you're breathing is safe for you and your family. Enter Awair, an air quality monitor that will leave you breathing easy.

 Joining the rapidly growing family of air monitors is the Awair Air Quality Monitor. It measures 6.3 inches by 3.54 inches by 1.97 inches. It's made of natural materials and looks similar to a speaker. You can get it in 100% North American walnut timber, or there is a "baby" version that has more of a nursery-friendly look in either ocean- or baby rose-colored copolymer. More important than the look, of course, is what the Awair does. Awair identifies and monitors five key factors that affect your air quality: humidity, chemicals, carbon dioxide, temperature, and dust. You can easily keep abreast of the results either by looking at the Awair LED display or by checking the convenient Awair app from your smartphone. A color-coded score based on a 0 to 100 scale will alert you as to whether your air quality is poor, fair, or good. Zero indicates the lowest air quality whereas 100 indicates the highest. Reviewers found the scores easy to read on the LED display and also appreciated the color-coding, which gave an immediate sense of how healthy their inside air environment was.

You may think ok, so what if I know my air quality score? What am I supposed to do with it? That's where Awair gets even better, providing you with tips to improve your air quality based on your personal scores. It can also track your improvements and averages over time. If you tap any one measurement, you can get additional details about what exactly it means for you and your home. Reviewers liked that you can also select specific modes if you have particular concerns, such as allergies or even wanting to improve your sleep. Additionally, some of our reviewers noted that it tracked changes very quickly. For example, when dusting, the Awair immediately picked up that there was more dust in the air. Conveniently, Awair can also connect to other smart devices in your home, such as Amazon Alexa products. It features both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
