Air Quality Information

On average we take 21,000 breaths per day. Therefore it’s vitally important to know a bit more about the air we breathe and what could be impacting upon our lives. Over the 35 years we’ve been in this industry we’ve tested and gathered a wealth of information about nearly every air quality issue that affect people and places.


This huge resource gives insight on the different ways indoor air quality can affect your wellbeing, and data on the recognised industry standards for New Zealand. You’ll find pointers on how to make your environment more comfortable and explanations that will help you to determine the quality of your indoor air.
