This Well+Good article- ‘You’ll Start Tracking Home Health Like You Track Heart Health’- by Kara Jillian Brown is fascinating reading. We routinely use tracking technology to measure fitness and personal health metrics. Why has it taken so long to incorporate this technology into our homes to monitor indoor air quality? It makes perfect sense to do so.
As Dr John McKeon says “Just because you haven’t had a car accident, you still wear your seatbelt and have car insurance. So just because there hasn’t been a negative [outcome of poor air quality] doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be aware and be continuously monitoring the issue.”
Tracking Home Health
Just like we track our health and fitness metrics on our phones and other appliances soon it will be routine to track our home health metrics. Smart air purifiers, HVAC systems and humidifiers will be sending us data on the quality of our indoor air and this information will provide us with intel to make whatever changes necessary to preserve the health of our space. These will include personalized suggestions ranging from just cracking a window, to raising the temperature, to investing in a dehumidifier, depending on what it senses that you need. It’s a no brainer.
