In the Air Company Newsletter – April 2022

Dear Friend –

Since our last newsletter, we’ve had some exciting new developments at Advanced Indoor Resources. Our company has continued to grow, innovate, and advance. I’m thankful to our clients and my team for getting us to where we are today. We will only do more and do it better!

We recently redesigned our website to provide a stronger introduction to our HVAC, Building Automation Controls, and Plumbing services and products. We hope you’ll visit and learn more about how we can make your building both smarter and healthier.

I was proud to announce earlier this week that we have established a Scientific Advisory Board to provide expert, unbiased input on our products, both developed and yet to be. This entity is the first of its kind to be formed in the “Cradle of Biotech,” Maryland.

Lastly, I joined “heavenly forces” with my friend Rev. Al Hathaway to produce a podcast called “He’s Holy. I’m Knott.” Pun intended! We are bringing the best and brightest of Baltimore into our makeshift studio to discuss the positive going ons of our gritty, underrated city. We’ve got a lot to offer!

Please keep truckin’ along through this email to learn more about the new exciting things we’re doing at Advanced Indoor Resources.

All my best,

Martin Knott

Our new Scientific Advisory Board

Advanced Indoor Resources, AIR LLC, has created a Scientific Advisory Board to better understand the science of indoor air quality delivery for buildings of all types.

Science and technology are at the core of Advanced Indoor Resources' mission to make buildings safer,  smarter, and healthier. The development of the VisionAIR™ indoor air quality platform – a foundation  for the company's healthcare technology stack – provides detailed, real-time indoor air quality data  monitoring and management.
Joining Advanced Indoor Resources' Scientific Advisory Board are the following leading health experts:

  • Gregory Diette, MD, MHS – Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology and, Environmental Health and Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, Expertise: Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

More people are returning to buildings of all types, and there is an intense focus on indoor air quality; improvements could add a significant annual benefit to the US Economy. "We are thrilled to bring  together top-level scientific experts to further advance our knowledge of creating and maintaining  healthy indoor air quality. Investments in safer, smarter, healthier buildings will create work  environments people thrive in," said Martin Knott, founder of Advance Indoor Resources.

"I like Martin's approach; it's steeped in evidence-based science; I am looking forward to working with  my fellow members to advance scientific approaches towards creating safer and healthier indoor environments," said Dr. Don Milton.

"The COVID19 pandemic has clearly illustrated that air quality management is an important tool for  infection control in Indoor settings," said Dr. Lucy Wilson.

Maryland, "The Cradle of Healthcare Technology," is home to some of the world's leading medical and biotechnology institutions. Advanced Indoor Resources is proud to have a Scientific Advisory Board that hails from these invaluable hubs of healthcare advancements.

The VisionAIR™ Platform developed by Advanced Indoor Resources is flexible and can be installed on any HVAC system. The company plans to make the VisionAIR™ Platform available to the commercial, Industrial, Government real estate owners,  and third-party building automation controls installers.

Growing our healthcare technology start-up

The best part? We’re only getting started.

The White House is prioritizing Indoor Air Quality

In an exciting development, the White House made clear that indoor air quality is a public health issue that must be addressed. Filtration and ventilation quality is critical to our collective battle against COVID-19 and other negative airborne viruses and particulates.

Indoor air expert, Joseph G. Allen, wrote an excellent opinion piece in March titled Biden administration (finally) elevates healthy buildings as part of national Covid strategy.

He wrote: “The Biden White House had been on something of a listening and engagement tour on this topic, reaching out to many experts to gather evidence on why better buildings were key, and what should be done to elevate this topic. The listening paid off, because it's Clean Air in Buildings Challenge is excellent.”

The Clean Air Buildings Challenges provides critical guidance on how to make safer, cleaner building environments.

"The administration is elevating this issue with its signal — coming from the top of the government and a major statement — that buildings matter for health."

Advanced Indoor Resources already answered the call!

Our company is already doing the work to prioritize healthy buildings. Advanced Indoor Resources makes buildings HEALTHIER and SMARTER. Over more than a year, we've focused our start-up's research and technology development on innovative ways to make indoor building air cleaner.

We reached out to some of the world’s best scientists and asked what really mattered when it comes to healthy indoor air. They told us Co2, Temperature, PM2.5, PM10, Humidity, VOC’s and air Exchanges per hour.  With this information in hand we developed and launched VisionAIR™. The platform ensures that the indoor air we breathe is safe.  

VisionAIR™ is the first system that not only monitors the 6 most important factors that determine indoor air quality, it manages the HVAC equipment to keep all of them within the ranges that the CDC, NIOSH, and ASHREA determined to be healthy.
