A group of friends living in beautiful Westchester County situated an hour north of New York City created Refresh Smart Home to bring awareness to as many people as possible on how important it is to maintain a healthy home environment. Being ever-health conscious, we have made healthy living a priority. We try our best to eat organically, exercise regularly and to be aware of nature as much as possible. Although many people try to follow these same practices there is an astounding number of people who are not aware that their home and work environments may be harming them and their families.
Driving in cars, flying in planes, engaging in recreational activities, and being exposed to environmental pollutants all pose varying degrees of risk. Some risks simply cannot be avoided. Some we choose to accept because to do otherwise would restrict our ability to lead our lives a certain way. And some are risks we may decide to avoid if we had the chance to make informed choices. Indoor air quality is one area that you can take steps towards improving.
Throughout the past few years, a growing body of scientific evidence has shown that the air within homes and other buildings is up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. Other research shows that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
In addition, people who are exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time are those most susceptible to the negative impact of indoor air pollution to their health. Those susceptible include small children, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease. Yet many people do not have the knowledge to properly mitigate these issues. Most of you may know someone who is struggling with asthma, severe allergies or major headaches when they are inside. We created this site to help people in this situation.
Refresh Smart Home was started because we care passionately about helping families create a healthy and smart home environment. We aim to educate people on indoor air quality issues while also introducing the latest technology to make for a safer and more efficient home. We only offer products that have passed the test in our own homes and contain all the qualities that anyone would want—highest build quality, best in class, great design, energy efficient, long lasting and easy to use.
