AtmosAir at GREENBUILD 2017

AtmosAir Solutions will attend GREENBUILD this week in Boston, Massachusetts.

AtmosAir will be exhibiting in Booth #1939.

The Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, presented by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the world’s largest green building exposition of its type, providing a forum for the green building community to unite, change lives, revolutionize business, and address our world’s most pressing problems.

Founded in 2002, Greenbuild brings together industry leaders, experts and frontline professionals dedicated to sustainable building, making Greenbuild the ideal space to learn about groundbreaking green building products, services and technologies. The three-day event, which this year will be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from Nov. 8-10, 2017, will feature high profile celebrities, activists and political figures working together to promote the ideals and interests of the green building movement.

“I’ve been at Greenbuild the past six years, walking the show, but we really feel the time is now to introduce our AtmosAir solutions at Greenbuild” said Steve Levine, President and CEO of AtmosAir. “Humans are choosing to spend 22 hours a day indoors. We need our indoor environments to sustain us. Our team at AtmosAir is motivated to try and help companies create healthier indoor environments. Our process is natural and sustainable. We have developed smart technology that brings nature indoors – and we hope people in many buildings will breathe easier because of it. We’re excited to share our message and be a bigger part of the green building movement.”

In addition to exhibiting, AtmosAir will also take part in an education session titled ‘The Wellness/energy Nexus – a Case for Effective Design.’

In the session, leaders in the design community will use AtmosAware monitors to display how the Air Quality Monitoring and Feedback credit within The WELL Standard is an opportunity to measure and track air quality performance and comfort of occupants that goes outside traditional building design.

Project Profile: Formula 1 Champion, Fernando Alonso, Breathes in AtmosAir throughout Hilton Austin Stay

In preparation for the most recent Austin Texas Formula 1 race, AtmosAir aligned with Hilton’s Austin Hotel to allow professional F1 racer, Fernando Alonso, the ability to breathe purified air throughout his stay.

As exhibited in last month’s newsletter, this past May 2017, Hilton announced a new guestroom concept, entitled “Five Feet to Fitness,” that lets guests work out in their rooms.  The concept includes an indoor bike from British cycling company Wattbike and a Gym Rax training station with equipment for strength, core, suspension and high-intensity interval training workouts. The rooms also have a meditation chair and blackout shades.

What’s more, is that the Five Feet to Fitness Rooms also include AtmosAir, allowing guests to breathe the purest form of air circulation during their stay.

AtmosAir’s main priority is to make consumers aware that the air they’re breathing is on the same level as healthy air found in nature.

While prepping for a big race or competition, AtmosAir wants to ensure that each professional athlete is getting the best treatment for their overall health.

The AtmosAir system features sustainable bi polar ionization tubes that remove harmful particles and VOCs from our breathing range.

By including the AtmosAir purification systems in their hotel rooms, Hilton is ensuring that the air their guests breathe, while working out and throughout their stay, is healthy and clean.

AtmosAir in the News: Departures Magazine

AtmosAir was recently featured in Departures Magazine in the article titled “The New Think: The Amazing Ideas that Shape our World.”

Edited by Julian Sancton, the article profiled the copious benefits defined by how much one can pay for airfare, including the air we breathe while traveling.

As the article indicates, fresh, clean air is becoming more of a quintessential luxury good and a booming sector.  ‘The World Health Organization now calls air pollution “the world’s largest single environmental health risk,” contributing to 3 million deaths each year (more than twice the global death rate from auto accidents).’

Commercial buildings, airports, hotel rooms and even restaurants have started to charge premiums for cleaner environments with the best air quality.  Airports like LAX have installed enhanced purification throughout. The global architecture firm, Gensler, also recently issued a report called “Design for Polluted and Toxic Environments,” concluding that it was imperative, no matter how challenging, to reduce both indoor air pollution and energy consumption in buildings.

The importance of healthy indoor air quality is definitely trending and Departures noted how AtmosAir has been thinking on a grander scale about the social benefits of clean air.

The article notes, ‘AtmosAir is working on improving air quality in sports arenas to bolster athletic performance, office buildings to increase productivity and hospitals to cut down the risk of infection.’

5 Tips for Winterizing Your Home Without Harming Your Health

Many of our residential clients, especially those who reside on the east coast, are more concerned about indoor air quality in their homes during the winter time.

Between allergies and lingering colds, varying temperatures make it even more important to keep your family safe and healthy.

The AtmosAir team has five important things you can do to help winterize your home this season:

1)      Insulate the eco-friendly way.

Keep icy air out of your home by insulating your attic, basement, and/or crawlspace.  Stay healthy by choosing insulation materials like cellulose, that don’t off-gas volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which may be harmful to human health.

2)      Have your home heating system inspected.

As winter approaches, make sure your furnace, gas fireplace, or other home heating system is running efficiently and safely.  Call an HVAC professional to inspect for any necessary repairs.

3)      Clean your ductwork.

Oftentimes, we find that dust, pet hair and mold can build up within your ductwork.  Have your ductwork professionally cleaned to help your HVAC system circulate cleaner.

4)      Chimney TLC

Clean your flue of any creosote and debris before you start using your fireplace or woodstove this winter. This is important for 2 health-related reasons: 1) reducing fire hazards and 2) safeguarding indoor air quality. When you’re not using the chimney, prevent icy drafts with a chimney balloon or chimney sheep.

5)      Enhance your indoor air quality!

We can’t stress the importance enough!

With your home sealed up tight in winter, your indoor air quality is likely to suffer unless you take measures to properly sanitize and clean your home with an AtmosAir system that dually cleans your air.

Hundreds of third party independent tests confirm that AtmosAir™ reduces or eliminates the toxins that can cause disease and illness. Your indoor air environment will be virtually free of odors, dust, pollen, and spores. AtmosAir™ uses no harsh chemicals or ozone, is nearly maintenance-free and creates no unwanted byproducts. Most importantly it helps reduce the airborne spread of influenza and viruses. The infectious organisms are usually contained in droplet nuclei, which are 5 micrometers in diameter (5 millionths of a meter) or smaller in size. These particles can remain suspended in air for hours or days and do not easily fall to the forces of gravity. AtmosAir will agglomerate (make these particles bigger and heavier) and quickly remove them from your breathing zone.
