There’s no place like home . . . isn’t that the truth? It’s where most of us love to be, spending years creating a space that is just ours where we feel safe and protected. But when you have asthma or allergies to air-born dust mites you quickly learn that your home might not be the safe haven you expect it to be. Considering that some experts estimate that we spend upwards to 90% of our time indoors, our inside environment counts for a lot. Couple that with what we are learning about the importance of a good night’s sleep and all of a sudden creating the ideal nest, not only as a place to thrive but also for rest is critical to a healthy lifestyle.
Healthy Home Coach is a smart indoor climate monitor that helps you to create a healthier home environment by tracking and recording indoor environmental elements such as air quality, humidity, temperature and noise. If the air quality is poor, it can contribute to allergies and possible illness. If the temperature is either too warm or too cold, it can impair one’s ability to get a good night’s sleep. Healthy Home Coach alerts users to when one of these elements is less than ideal and offers suggestions of how to make improvements to reach a state of optimal.
Users plug in the monitor and download the free, easy-to-use App. By providing personalized data, users are given specific action items to ensure that their home environment is as healthy as possible and by using a smartphone are able to receive updates on the health of the room.
I have been using my Healthy Home Coach for several months now and refer to it to check the air quality of our room. Living with an asthmatic child can be scary. Nighttime croup fits, regular asthmatic attacks and a few run-ins with allergic airways are all I needed to up my vigilance when it came to creating a home environment as optimal as possible. When you’ve sat with your wheezing child in the wee hours of the night, you will go to great lengths to create a healthy home, and Healthy Home Coach makes it easy.
