Airthings was founded with an inventive spirit and an ambitious objective: to offer accurate, user-friendly radon detectors to the masses, making them as common as smoke detectors.

Who we are

Established in 2008, Airthings is a Norway-based tech company led by a team of experienced scientists, engineers and technology professionals, with a common goal: to educate on the prevalence of Radon, as well as other indoor air contaminants, and develop accessible technology solutions to help people stay healthy.

A simple solution, for the future

Every idea starts with a problem: radon testing for homeowners hasn’t improved in almost 30 years.

Several scientists working together at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) saw a gap in the radon market—or more like a deadlock. Traditionally, consumers only had two options: call a professional to test their radon levels, or purchase a single-use charcoal test which was then sent to a lab for the results.

We started Airthings to break free from these traditions and put consumers, as well as business owners, back in control of their Indoor Air Quality. We also make certified professional radon units with 4 times the radon testing chambers.

Tech you can rely on

By using the same professional radon and IAQ technology across devices, keeping design inhouse and developing a more user friendly customer experience, Airthings is able to provide simple, affordable and accurate products—giving individuals and businesses complete control of their Indoor Air Quality and giving radon professionals state-of-the-art, fully certified and performance-driven products with app capabilities.
