Who we are

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.

Established in 2008, Airthings is a global tech company led by a team of experienced scientists, engineers, developers and visionaries, 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.

Our story

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.

From there, we saw that there were other dangers hiding in the air we breathe, not only radon but other contaminants. We went to work researching these contaminants and finding ways that we could help not only consumers, but offices, schools and HVAC professionals make safer air quality decisions for the masses. We also saw that we could help with energy efficiency.
