Come home to clean air
Our home is our safe haven and the place we spend the most time. To live healthy lives, we must have clean fresh air at home. At BreatheEasy, we evaluate the indoor air quality in your home, evaluate the space and design a solution that will ensure you and your loved ones get perfect clean air.
A central solution for Delhi’s smoggy winters
A leading cardiologist called our CEO for a meeting in July 2015. He spent an hour and a half with our CEO before asking him to help a patient of his who had pulmonary fibrosis. The patient’s heart was giving way and she needed to stay in Delhi to access the hospital. The doctor said that she would not survive past Diwali unless we did something. We designed a central system for perfect air quality in her apartment. When we were finished, the particulates and gases in the room were virtually gone. The patient’s mother called our CEO a week after Diwali and asked why she had not found us three years earlier when they had moved to Delhi? Her daughter’s condition was better than it had ever been. She’s now able to survive the city’s smoggy winters with fewer troubles.
The principal of our CEO’s daughter’s school was asthmatic. One day our CEO bumped into her at the mall, finding her sitting to catch her breath. When he learned she had asthma, he offered to put an air purifier and some plants in her bedroom to help improve the air quality. She was skeptical, but willing to give it a try. We installed eight sansevieria plants and one SHARP A80 air purifier in her 220-square foot room in Gurgaon. She survived the entire winter without an asthma attack and without needing steroids – for the first time ever. This success motivated our CEO to help other people with clean air solutions for their homes.
Boost productivity and effectiveness
Research has clearly shown that clean and healthy office air reduces absenteeism, increases human productivity by as much as 20% and improves cognitive function by as much as 101%. Providing perfect clean air while balancing the energy costs of large buildings and offices is something we have done for many years. For existing buildings, our engineering team does a deep evaluation of the existing space including air quality testing to understand the problem areas. From there,we design optimal solutions to improve the indoor quality and possibly even reduce energy consumption of the building by as much as 20% with products from enVerid.
An office in a converted residence becomes air-pollution free
The UNHCR office in Delhi is in a rented building in Vasant Vihar. The building was built as a residence and has been converted into an office. It was not planned with central air conditioning or central ducts. After the WHO called Delhi the world’s most polluted city in 2014, UNHCR became very concerned with the particulate levels in the capital and wanted clean indoor air in their office.We evaluated the space and saw that it was not feasible to install ducts in the building and provide a central solution. For this reason, we decided to install about 50 air purifiers in the entire building along with about 100 plants (money plants and areca palms). We conducted multiple training sessions for the building staff to help them understand why this was important to their health and why it was better to keep the windows closed, especially in the winter months when the outdoor air was very polluted. Once they understood, we were able to achieve very good indoor air quality results.
Financial company brings clean air to staff and clients
DMI Finance in ITO, Delhi, is one of our oldest clients having purchased air purifiers and plants for their offices and director’s homes. After a couple of years, they approached our team again and asked if we could do something with their central systems to improve air quality further.
We sent our engineering team to the site and saw that we could very easily improve the indoor air quality with a simple centralized solution. We installed our solution and began to monitor the air quality in their office remotely. By monitoring the air quality from our NOC (Network Operations Centre) we are able to send them a message if the air quality in the office deteriorated or call them if it persisted. We could even show up to physically fix the problem if necessary. We have taken the hassle out of air quality by guaranteeing them clean air and taking care of the systems for them.
The air quality in the DMI finance team is meeting and beating every international standard of indoor air quality and the team is very happy with the solution.
Fresh air for young minds
Our children spend a lot of time at school. We want our little ones to learn in environments that are not only healthy but also conducive to learning. To do this, we must ensure that all the carcinogens are removed from classroom air and that carbon dioxide levels are kept to a minimum. Recent Harvard Medical School studies show that lower CO2 when combined with lower pollutants improves cognitive scores by as much as 101%.
Keeping kids safe at AES
Teachers and parents at the American Embassy School were concerned about air quality inside the school, which also serves as a community hub for many foreign families living in Delhi. In 2015, BreatheEasy engineered and installed a centralised solution that brings clean, fresh air into every classroom as well as the gymnasium and shared spaces throughout the school. Now the particulate matter is typically near zero indoors, even when the outside air is in the unhealthy-to-hazardous range. The students are allow to focus on what matters: learning, socializing, and growth.
Protect the motherboards
Server and hardware failure is a very big issue for data centres. By understanding the causes of these failures from an air quality perspective, we can design and implement solutions that address the underlying problems. At BreatheEasy, we conduct X-rays of failed motherboards and test for specific gases like H2S and SO2, which increase the toxicity of the particulates that settle on the boards, causing the silver connectors to erode. We can guarantee projects with G1 class air quality, assuming we take on the project in a holistic manner.
Solving one data centre’s big problem
A data centre in Noida was experiencing regular server failures and struggled to pinpoint the cause. Their team approached us to see if we could help. We did an X-ray analysis on the failed motherboards and coupon tests to understand the air quality inside and outside the data centre. We found that the area had a high concentration of H2S, which is acidic in nature and corrodes many surfaces. Fine particulate matter was absorbing the toxic H2S gas and corroding the silver connectors on the servers, causing them to fail.
We put together a solution to guarantee a G1 class data centre for air quality, eliminating most of the harmful particulates and gases from the air of the data centre. The client was extremely happy and has continued to get their air quality services from us.
Protect patients and staff
Infection control is a major issue in hospitals Hospitals with the right pressurization and air quality systems are able to control infection and stop the spread of diseases between patients, staff and visitors. We have some of the best solutions in the industry, such as the IQAir Cleanroom series products dedicated to ensuring hospitals and clinics are safe and healthy spaces.
Welcome guests with clean air
A hotel room is a home away from home. Many international organizations have asked us to recommend hotels in India that meet global air quality standards. We have helped design and implement air quality solutions at some of the best hotels in the country. Our industry-leading solutions include products from IQAir, enVerid and some custom products, and can help any hotel improve their occupancy rates and client satisfaction.
Breathe deep without fear
While breathing heavily and deeply, it is even more important to have fresh clean air. Gyms may seem like a better alternative to running in the smog, but they do not necessarily have cleaner air. In fact, because people breathe at a higher rate while exercising, most gyms often have a high accumulation of CO2 and VOCs, which are harmful for health. Installing an air purification system, whether central or portable, allows people to stay fit while protecting their lungs.
Top-quality air for one hotel gym
Mr. Jaideep had used our services for air quality in his home before recommending us to the gymnasium at the Lodhi Hotel, where he was a member. After a long discussion with the hotel’s chief engineer, the engineering team was convinced we would be able to provide a sound technical solution to their air quality problem.
Although small portable air purifiers would be very easy to install in a gym and would take care of some of the particulates, they were the wrong solution as they would do nothing to the high CO2 and VOCs. We recommended a central solution to ensure low particulates, CO2 and VOCs. The team understood quickly and we completed the project in six weeks.The gym members are happy to work out in fresh clean air every day.
