How We Started
John Skardon was terrified of watching his wife suffer from severe asthma. Exposure to particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) could cause her to experience a life threatening attack. John began searching for a way to help his wife manage her asthma, and so he designed and built an affordable method for measuring indoor air quality (IAQ) parameters. The first prototypes of the AirAdvice IAQ monitor were built in 1999 by electrical engineer and company co-founder Meindert Kleefstra.
John started AirAdvice, Inc. to make the IAQ monitor available to homeowners. AirAdvice partners with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors, providing them with technology to identify indoor air quality problems in the home. After the indoor air quality issues are identified, the contractor can then solve those problems using a variety of air quality improvements products and solutions.
By 2005, AirAdvice recognized that their contractors were beginning to do extensive work in commercial buildings as well. In 2006 the company introduced its first product for the commercial buildings market – an expansion of its core technology that would assess building energy performance and savings opportunities.
Don Aultman, the general manager of AirAdvice’s residential IAQ division, established AirAdvice for Homes, Inc. in 2012 to purchase the residential IAQ business of AirAdvice and continue the original mission of improving the quality of life for homeowners.
