Do you know what's in the air you're breathing? Truth is, indoor air can be 5x more polluted than outside, affecting allergies, asthma, eczema, sleep, and much more. Awair tracks toxins in your air and gives you recommendations to help you keep it clean and safe. Awair gives you the knowledge you need to improve your indoor environment and take control.
Awair tracks the 5 key factors of air quality: Dust, Chemicals (VOCs), CO2, Humidity, and Temperature. These elements can impact your health and comfort in many ways, including respiratory health, sleep, focus, mood, and immunity. You can use Awair’s preference modes to sleep better, control your allergies, increase productivity, or improve your general health.
Based on decades of research, Awair gives you actionable insights and recommendations that are proven to improve your air quality. Awair has also partnered with Mayo Clinic to provide helpful tips. You’ll get an Awair score between 0 and 100 to help you quickly understand the quality of your indoor air.

How did you come up with the idea for this product?
When Ronald Ro had his first child, he, like many other parents, found out that his baby was suffering from eczema. After many frustrating months of research and trying a seemingly endless number of strategies, he realized that his baby girl’s suffering was closely linked to the quality of the air around her. What he also realized was that there weren’t any products available that could help him understand what was in her air and how he could make her more comfortable. Using his engineering background Ron decided to build a device that could track chemicals and toxins in the air. He connected with his close friend Kevin Cho and they built the first Awair… for his daughter.
