Airthings Introduces First Live Global Radon Map

Airthings officially unveils the world’s first-ever, live global Radon map, RadonMap.com, powered by unique consumer-generated sensor data compiled from around the world. RadonMap.com updates Radon level data regularly, arming users with current and historical data and serving as an indispensable and revolutionary tool for anyone looking to keep their families, employees, tenants and students healthy, safe and productive.

RadonMap.com aggregates radon level data from Airthings’ industry-leading devices dispersed all over North America, Europe and beyond to provide accurate, local radon readings for users seeking current and reliable insight into the dangerous indoor gas and how much exposure they are subjected to daily.

Previously, gaining an understanding of localized Radon readings was only possible through professionally-administered tests or outdated government data, offering an inaccurate, one-time snapshot rather than a constantly-evolving picture. Now, with the introduction of the Airthings RadonMap.com, Radon levels and fluctuations can be tracked accurately through a community of user-generated data. RadonMap.cominstantly becomes the most reliable and up-to-date information source available for alerting the public about the presence of Radon in their environments and enabling them to take corrective action, if necessary, before a situation becomes critical.

Radon is frequently overlooked in favor of other air pollutants such as carbon monoxide, however it warrants serious consideration as a health risk in the US. Radon is an odorless, radioactive gas that comes from the earth beneath us. The risks from Radon are cumulative and levels fluctuate frequently based on environmental factors,  exposure can cause life-threatening health effects, most notably lung cancer.

In addition to measuring Radon levels, Airthings continues to spearhead innovation in the smart home category by introducing product offerings that address overall air quality, indoors and outdoors. With the newly-released Airthings Dashboard, users have access to complete Indoor Air Quality data from their Airthings smart devices and can compare data and receive tips to reduce indoor air hazards, optimize ventilation and save energy. Anyone with an Airthings Wave has a comprehensive one-stop shop for comparing radon levels in rooms throughout their home, and with the addition of outdoor air data, customers will gain visibility of the real-time Outdoor Air Quality Index, pollutants, pollen and more giving them the full picture of both their indoor and outdoor air.
