The number of diseases emerging due to the contaminated air conditioner is steadily increasing.
Death due to indoor pollutants reached 2,800,000 death per year
– the World Health Organization(WHO).
The contamination of the air conditioner occurs immediately on installation. In the process of pollutant as fine dust getting into the AC through the filter, moisture level increases with odor as it blends with various pollutants.
Indoor air quality, where we spend 80~90 percent of a day, is contaminated more than 100 times than that of outdoor.
Indoor has more than 1000 times of possibilities of developing the lung transfer coefficient of the pollutant than outdoor.
Among 7000 child patients visiting the biggest children’s hospital over a day in January 2013, the majority of them were due to respiratory disease.
AQUAL – App
AQUAL application gets information from the product and guide user to keep track of their air conditioner.
Aqual consisted of IR sensor turns on upon turning on air-conditioner. Light in circular LED rotates until it measures and compares the air quality. Using a Bluetooth sensor, the measured result is sent to the application.Aqual consisted of IR sensor turns on upon turning on air-conditioner.
