You wouldn’t drink dirty water. Why breathe dirty air?

That’s the question Awair, the company behind top-rated air quality monitors, poses. While we hear all the time about air pollution in cities and out in nature, did you know that your air indoors, inside your home can also be polluted?

According to the EPA, due to things like building materials, tobacco products and central heating, some of your everyday objects can be pollutant sources. Poor air quality can also negatively impact your health and bring on things like “irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.”

If you’re interested in learning more about your personal air quality, you may want to invest in an air quality monitor. With every brand from Blueair to IQAir, we’ve found a great quality monitor at an affordable price in the Awair 2nd Edition Air Quality Monitor.

Priced at just under $200, this monitor tracks five elements of air quality, including fine dust, chemicals, C02, humidity and temperature, and can be controlled through the Awair Connect app.

With the brand’s app you not only can get “real-time feedback and browse actionable tips to improve the health of your space” but you can also use it to connect your monitor with other smart home devices to automatically implement those tips.

One happy user shared, “The air has become much healthier at home with the close monitoring provided by the unit. The device is easy to setup. The app is also great, always connected, providing frequent updates and showing excellent sensitivity to momentary air changes.”

While some customers had some wifi issues when getting the monitor connected, most were able to resolve their problems.
