Clean Air for All

While not everyone has the same sensitivity to wildfire smoke, it’s still a good idea to avoid breathing smoke if you can help it. And when smoke is heavy, such as can occur in close proximity to a wildfire, it’s bad for everyone.

Wildfires and Indoor Air Quality

The biggest health threat from smoke is from fine particles. These microscopic particles can penetrate deep into your lungs. They can cause a range of health problems, from burning eyes and a runny nose to aggravated chronic heart and lung diseases. When wildfires create smoky conditions, there are things you can do, indoors and outdoors, to reduce your family’s exposure to smoke. Reducing exposure to smoke is important for everyone’s health — especially children, older adults, and people with heart or lung disease. Take these actions in your home to reduce your smoke exposure:
  • Monitor the air in your home
  • Keep windows and doors closed.
  • Use a portable air cleaner or high-efficiency filter to remove fine particles from the air.
  • Air out your home by opening windows

The biggest health threat from smoke is from fine particles. These microscopic particles can get into your eyes and respiratory system, where they can cause health problems such as burning eyes, runny nose, and illnesses such as bronchitis. Fine particles also can aggravate chronic heart and lung diseases.

Smoke from wildfires is adversely affecting air quality and potentially putting more people at health risk from smoke exposure.If you live in an area where the wildfire risk is high, take steps now to prepare.

Great product, great support!

We are using it in a Building Science instruction center and it reads with good accuracy side by side with some of the other commercial-grade handheld sensors. This product is super easy to integrate with IFTTT products. It is really cool stuff! Indoor Air Quality is very important and often not measured. I think products like this are an important step in better human health.

I would buy again!

I was worried about how difficult the setup would be, as I’m in my 60’s and not totally computer savvy. I needn’t have worried as this was a very easy product to get up and running. I love the security of seeing the air quality in my house! I find myself checking it several times daily!

Best on the market.

My uncle is an asthmatic and was hospitalized again last week. Having a log of the air quality was useful as his most recent trouble seems to correlate with a huge spike in PM2.5 & VOCs in the days before. Getting a notification about the air quality might help prevent an issue next time.
