Pressurize your house to blow out all the bad air

Outdoor air pollution enters your home every day, bringing in a range of toxic pollutants. Outdoor air pollution is well known by health authorities to increase the risk of asthma, strokes, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, and has also been linked with sudden infant death syndrome, low birth weights and some cancers.

Air pollution is a concern for all of New Zealand, but particularly for Auckland. Current air quality measurements taken by the Auckland Regional Council indicates that Auckland has higher carbon monoxide (CO) levels than London.

Auckland’s air pollution is mainly caused by car exhaust, and presents significant health risks to Aucklanders through contaminants including Fine particles (PM10 and PM2.5), Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Carbon monoxide (CO), Sulphur dioxide (SO2) Ozone (O3), and Hydrocarbons.
