Every individual spends an average 10-12 hours at home everyday – but we seldom have a chance to measure and improve air quality at home. Among researches conducted under Institute for the Environment, we realized the importance to understand how our households are affected by the air outside of the windows, and how our daily habits including opening/closing windows, turning on/off of our air conditioners and air purifiers can affect air quality at our homes.

If you are reading this, you are invited to PRAISE-HK Home (Air Quality) Measurement for FREE! Yes, we need your help to collect these outdoor-to-indoor variations, in advancing PRAISE-HK’s upcoming development. As a return, a detailed summary report will be provided for your record. Don’t miss out this opportunity, read on and join now!


MEASUREMENT PROCESS
