Installed directly in a homeowner’s existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, HAVEN leverages proprietary sensor technology to detect air pollutants in real-time, delivering air quality updates straight to a homeowner’s mobile device.
Capable of regulating the home’s airflow, filtering detected pollutants out of the air through high performance air filters, HAVEN improves residential air quality by upwards of 90 percent.
Starting at $195, the HAVEN system can be retrofitted into any HVAC system by a professional HVAC engineer.
Subscribers receive an ongoing analysis of their home’s air health, a monthly service that includes replacement filters, and regular indoor and outdoor air quality measurement updates.
A limited run of 1,000 systems are now available exclusively to residents of B.C. and Alberta, with Canadian expansion anticipated for the fall of 2019.
“Today marks the culmination of years of product testing and development in the name of helping people breathe better not only here, in our hometown of Vancouver, but across the country,” said Kevin R. Hart, Founder and CEO of TZOA.
“We spend over 90 percent of our time indoors, making it absolutely crucial that our internal environments promote good health and better breathing. With HAVEN, consumers will be capable of both monitoring and improving the air quality, ventilation, and filtration of their home environments to rid the air of pollutants that have historically had a negative impact on our sleep, health, and overall comfort and productivity.”
TZOA was founded in 2013 by Hart, a former-journeyman electrician, and has 13 employees.
HAVEN is TZOA’s second product launch, following the crowdfunding success of their wearable air quality tracker that launched in 2014.
There initial approach was to develop a low-cost, portable air quality monitor that could detect small harmful particles in the air. After several iterations, they realized could do more than detect pollution both indoors and outdoors but actually improve air quality.
