How good is the air in your home? The majority of people have spent more time indoors than ever before. Without an air purifier or open windows, the air in a home can quickly become stale. Airthings is already one of the leading air quality monitors on the market and can help you track the type of air you breathe.
Now, the company has added a particle monitor to the system, a feature that has long been requested by users. The Airtings View Plus will monitor particles as small as PM2.5, or roughly the size of a dust mite, as well as PM1, the size of most bacteria.
Other sensors included with the View Plus monitor for radon, carbon dioxide and other hazardous air pollutants. The display makes the information easy to read at a glance and will give you an idea of whether the air inside your home is breathable or if you need to open a window. According to the World Health Organization, 90% of people regularly breathe unhealthy air.
Everything from animal dander to particles emitted from wood stoves can have an impact on the air quality in the home. Even today’s robot vacuums could help reduce the air quality in the home. For most people, a few particles in the air are not a problem – but a person with asthma or another respiratory problem is much more vulnerable. Studies also show that persistent poor air quality can lead to long-term health problems such as coronary heart disease.
The Airtings View Plus will be available in two different forms. The first is intended for use in residential homes, while the second version is intended for businesses and commercial spaces. The retail version of the product will contain all the sensors as a standard version, but also includes noise and light sensors, occupancy data and a virus risk indicator.
Airthings View Plus is available for pre-order starting today on Airthings.com for $ 300, although customers can take advantage of a 10% discount if they order before the end of March. The product is expected to start shipping in June.
