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.

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.
To better understand the impact unhealthy outdoor air quality has on indoor environments, Awair aggregated data from its indoor air quality (IAQ) monitors during the smoked-filled air days due to fires along the West Coast of the United States.
