Carrier intros healthy air starter package for quick IAQ actionable insights

Aug. 25, 2022
Universities, entertainment venues, schools and commercial real estate organizations can now benefit from a cost-effective, quick way to understand the health of their indoor air environments via real-time IAQ, thermal comfort and energy usage insights.

To ensure that building owners, facility managers and environment, health and safety (EHS) professionals understand the health of their indoor spaces, Carrier announced it is now offering its Abound Healthy Air Starter Package.

The starter package includes wireless, battery-operated IAQ sensors that measure six components of indoor air and environmental quality that are critical to occupant wellness – carbon dioxide, particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, radon, temperature and humidity.

"The Abound Healthy Air Starter Package is ideal for gaining actionable insights about the air quality in lobbies, small conference rooms, entrance areas and open offices in any type of building, and it can also be easily scaled to building portfolios of any size," states a company press release.

The company says this limited-time offering provides a simple, quick, and cost-effective way to monitor, visualize and react to the unseen components of indoor air quality, helping to support occupant wellness.

Per the company, this special offering is pre-packaged to be installed in a half a day and provides real-time monitoring of up to three different spaces, approximately 30,000 square feet.

The sensors connect directly to the cloud through cellular hubs, where all the IAQ data is pulled into the Abound interface. Since the sensors and hubs do not connect to a building’s management system, the Abound Starter Package ensures less network traffic and greater cybersecurity.

Carrier notes that its Abound digital platform, aggregates, analyzes and visualizes real-time and historical IAQ data and benchmarks it against the WELL Building Standard. Whenever any of the six components move outside of an acceptable range, building management is alerted and they can immediately address IAQ issues.

In addition to the hardware and a one-year subscription to the Abound platform, the starter package includes two interactive, navigational floor plans, professional consulting, and installation and onboarding provided by Carrier IAQ experts.


“Carrier developed the limited-time Abound Healthy Air Starter Package to quickly help universities, school campuses, entertainment venues and commercial real estate organizations with large building portfolios identify strategies that cost-effectively achieve a balance between building health and efficiency. IAQ continues to be of the utmost importance, as demonstrated in the COGfx scientific study, which found that cognitive function test scores doubled when study participants were in simulated green building environments with enhanced ventilation as opposed to conventional building environments.” -- Yasir Qureshi, general manager of digital products and Abound, Carrier
