During the pandemic in recent years, we have spent more time indoors than ever before, and the quality of the air we breathe has become an increasingly important topic. How are we affected by moisture, dry air, poorly ventilated rooms, air pollution, mold or dangerous substances such as radon? 30 million people in Europe suffer from asthma and their quality of life is affected by the air, both outdoors and indoors.
With a focus on our health and how we can measure and change the air we breathe, broadline Exertis Captech is now starting a collaboration with Airthings, the company that started in Norway in 2008 and which is now located in several places in the world.
"Airthings is a manufacturer that focuses on giving the world the opportunity to breathe better and they are a company that has unique products that will be a good addition to our Smart Home range. They are on time by offering products to many of us spend as much as up to 90% of our time indoors, so it's important to keep track of the levels of air pollution, CO2, radon, moisture and airborne chemicals in the air we breathe", says Dick Huvitus, Retail Product Manager for Exertis Nordics.
