Air pollution both inside and outside of the home has a negative impact on health and the environment. Air pollution at best irritates the eyes and at its worse, lowers life expectancy.
Air pollution kills plants by blocking sunlight. Plants suck carbon dioxide from the air. Less plants mean the air quality sinks even lower.
Less plants also mean wild animals have less to eat and nowhere to live. Without certain predators, pests, such as rats experience a population boom. This presents yet more problems for public health.
These are just a few of the effects of bad quality air. It impacts absolutely every area of life but is something that isn’t thought of all that much.
Cleaner air can have an immediate impact on improving health. Air sensors monitor air quality in real-time. They can be installed according to your requirement both outside and inside the home. You can even convince management to install one at the office. Indoor air pollution tends to be just as deadly as the smog that covers big cities. However, smog is visible, that spray of air freshener can’t be seen for long. Airly has real-time, easy to install air sensors for the home, office and local community.
It is simple to reduce indoor air pollution in your own home. A place of business and the wider world present challenges. A domestic air sensor measures the air quality in your home. With a domestic air sensor, you’ll be aware of how harmful the cleaning chemicals are to be inhaling, and you may think twice before reaching for that can of air freshener. In a particularly polluted home where opening the windows isn’t an option, you may even invest in an air purifier. A real-time look at outdoor air pollution may prevent you from opening a window if the air quality is even worse outside. Knowing the outdoor air quality can help asthma sufferers avoid triggers. Asthma attacks can be fatal.
Air quality fluctuates during the day. Rush hours have more cars on the road sending out exhaust fumes. Winds vary during the day. A breeze can blow the air pollution elsewhere. It is essential to know when air pollution is higher in real-time as well as have an estimate for when it peaks throughout the day. An assessment of when it peaks can be based on monitoring it over time. This is especially vital if you have health problems triggered by low air quality.
Monitoring Air Pollution
Air quality sensors measure the particles in the air, whether that is inside or out. Airly has an app that can alert you to changes in air quality. Their air sensors monitor in real-time with community sensors.
Weather patterns impact air quality. A good air quality sensor is programmed to know this. The wind isn’t the only thing that can affect air quality; humidity and temperature impact it too. In cold weather, the pollution is trapped at ground level.
