SWORDS, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trane Technologies (NYSE: TT) – a global climate innovator – is making it easier to understand and optimize home comfort, including the quality of air in your home.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has made many of us rethink the air we breathe indoors,” said Jason Bingham, president of Trane Technologies’ Residential HVAC business. “An important aspect of helping people feel safe indoors is alleviating airborne health risks, especially those related to viruses, bacteria, pet dander and other particles. But the first step is awareness and understanding of a home’s air quality. That’s why we’re pleased to integrate indoor air quality (IAQ) monitoring with Trane Home, beginning with Awair Element™.”
Evidence suggests that inadequate ventilation and poor indoor air quality management can increase the risk of contaminants circulating in the home, including particulates, carbon dioxide, toxic chemicals, allergens, gases and pathogens – conditions that can encourage exposure to airborne viruses. Yet, each indoor environment is unique and may require a different solution, making indoor air quality monitoring key to indoor comfort and wellness.
By integrating Awair Element with the newly-launched Trane Home app, homeowners can monitor their indoor air quality status, while their Trane HVAC system works behind the scenes to automatically take action if levels fall below ideal conditions or a user’s personal settings.
With Trane Home, homeowners can remotely adjust their connected thermostats and set heating and cooling schedules, control lighting and manage appliances, door locks, security systems and more. They can also opt in to Diagnostics, a platform that connects Trane dealers with homeowners’ HVAC systems for remote monitoring and problem-solving with real-time performance data. The integration of IAQ monitoring devices also allows Trane dealers to access and make recommendations based on IAQ scores for those who opt in.
Awair Element is a device that tracks five air quality factors that can impact health, comfort and productivity – temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) and microscopic particulate matter (PM2.5) from cooking, wildfires or vehicle traffic.
