It’s difficult for us to know what’s exactly in our air, whether that’s humidity levels or particles. So, we need data to tell us exactly what’s in the air. The main school of thought is that we need lots of sensors EVERYWHERE to tell us what’s in our air all over the home; a decentralized approach makes sense to get a holistic understanding of what’s going on throughout a building.
However, HAVEN has pioneered a centralized IAQ monitoring approach without “false positives” from cooking, cleaning, and other activities that impact the air quality. The philosophy is that “if you’re not measuring, you’re guessing,” and HAVEN aims to provide the data that allows contractors to customize IAQ controls and tailor solutions to their customers’ unique situations.
Countertop IAQ monitoring solutions are okay, but you need to know where to place them throughout the home, and their longevity tends to be poor.
Instead, HAVEN’s approach deals with in-duct IAQ monitoring. Their solution uses ongoing detection and is built to last a long time while accounting for IAQ changes seasonally or throughout the day. HAVEN wants to change people’s air, not their lifestyle, and the in-duct monitoring informs a central air controller that makes IAQ changes as the need arises. The central air controller is actually quite simple; it uses a bunch of dry-contact relays to bring on solutions as needed. However, the solution is constantly interactive and is NOT your typical box product. HAVEN has also been working on comparative analysis based on OUTDOOR air quality to make the product more intelligent to make people’s homes even safer.
HAVEN’s IAQ central air monitoring and control solutions facilitate communication between the homeowner and the HVAC contractor. On top of that, HAVEN’s product promotes customer education so that they’re aware of the air quality in their home. Education also aims to dispel common IAQ myths and stigmas.
Every home is different. Every family is different. Controls need to be adaptive and personalized while taking a holistic approach to IAQ and HVAC, and HAVEN has been developing a product that can meet everyone’s needs. HAVEN is currently focusing on making comfort and health accessible to everyone, dispelling the stigma that IAQ is a luxury while focusing on remote diagnostics.
