WHAT'S IN YOUR AIR?


Air quality plays an important role in short-term cognition and long-term health. On average, in America we spend 87 percent of our lives in buildings, according to the EPA. Despite this, little is known about indoor air quality (IAQ).

We decided to take a closer look at our office’s IAQ to see what we're breathing in on a daily basis. We used Airthinx monitors to track volatile organic compounds, particulate matter and carbon dioxide, and then assessed the results.

Read our blog to find out what we learned and what could be applied to other offices!
